The hemorrhoids are varicose expansion of hemorrhoid veins (an abnormally swollen vein ) in the anus or rectum.
This is one of the most widespread diseases. Symptoms of this disease include bleeding rectum, loss of hemorrhoidal bolus, accompanied by itching, inflammation and sometimes thrombosis. According to statistics women, and men are equally susceptible to hemorrhoids.
The chronic hemorrhoids behave cyclically, i.e. the condition improves and deteriorates in cycles. However left without a serious treatment this illness gradually progresses and can suddenly take the acute form which could lead to thrombosis.
The acute form of disease is characterized by a strong splitting pain and a sensation of having an alien object in rectum. These sensations are very acute during bowel movement, walking and sitting.
One of the main reasons for hemorrhoid problems is inadequate diet, with too few fibers, which leads to hard bowel movements and frequent constipations, which create constant straining during bowel movement.
Inactive way of life, sedentary work, adiposity, pregnancy and childbirth, unnecessary body weight, too many hot baths, smoking and constant stresses also provoke development of hemorrhoids.
It’s really important that you see a doctor at the first appearance of hemorrhoids.
It is possible to considerably accelerate the healing process using a simple technique used in Su Jok therapy.
First find most painful points on areas corresponding to the rectum according to figure 1.
Now find a little stick with a not too sharp edge (a toothpick with a broken sharp edge, a ball pen without ink and will do). You’re going to use this stick to massage those painful points. Press these points with a moderate effort and begin a slow rotation of the stick in two directions. Carry out this massage for several minutes. See figure 2.
Next paint over these areas with dark blue color. For this purpose it is possible to use an ordinary felt-tip pen.
Finally apply buckwheat seeds to these areas. This is the same technique as explained in “How To Get Rid Of Neck Pain” step 3.
If you have a constipation refer to How to Treat Constipation.
Advice on diet
As mentioned in the introduction, your diet is really important if you have hemorrhoids or you want to avoid those.
Your daily diet should include sufficient amount of liquids (between 2 to 3 liters) and products possessing salutary action on intestinal peristalsis – black and bran bread, crude vegetables and fruit, prunes, cereal and buckwheat groats.
It’d be beneficial to avoid entirely consuming whole milk and products from refined white flour. Sour-milk products on the other hand, like yogurts, are good for your diet.
