Definition of haemorrhoids
Haemorrhoids represent dilated veins in the anorectal area. Practically and physiologically, they are varicose raised spots which form due to the dilation and stretching of the venous walls in the anus and rectum. They are intense red in colour and may take various shapes. In the beginning, several small globules which then increase in size or may form “clusters”.
Types of haemorrhoids
Depending on the place of appearance, there may be internal or external haemorrhoids. Internal haemorrhoids are located deep within the rectum. External haemorrhoids are located in the area of the anus, inside or outside the body.
The most severe form which is the consequence of the failure to treat the thrombosed haemorrhoids. The condition is common in case of external haemorrhoids when a thrombus or a blood clot is formed. The condition is very painful and may generate serious complications.
Symptoms of haemorrhoids
In the beginning, there may be only a discomfort or itching sensation, then tenesmus occurs (spastic, painful contractures of the anal striated sphincter), pain in the bottom area and major sensation of discomfort or even haemorrhoidal crisis.
In case of internal haemorrhoids, the most frequent symptom is the bleeding. It is presented under the form of small blood streaks in stool or on toilet paper and are accompanied by pain or discomfort during defecation.
External haemorrhoids manifest especially through rectal pain, pain which becomes more intense while haemorrhoids become larger, limiting daily activities. Due to the rupture of the overdilated blood vessels, subcutaneous anorectal bleeding and blood clots appear; they are felt like small heavy sacs, which are called thrombosed hemorrhoids.
Diagnosis of hemorrhoids
Call the specialist from the first signs of bottom discomfort, itching or pain. Diagnosis is not difficult to establish but it requires a specialised examination in order to determine the level of the condition as well as their location.
A diagnosis which the physician can determine for you is also that of venous insufficiency or chronic venous insufficiency, conditions which weaken the walls of the blood vessels and cause their dilation. Venous insufficiency is a frequent cause of hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
Causes of hemorrhoids
In treating hemorrhoids, the first step is that of removing the cause(s) of their occurrence and they may be:
- Chronic constipation;
- Sedentarism and chaotic life style;
- Unbalanced diet and consumption of spicy foods or many others.
Treatment of hemorrhoids
Follow the physician’s recommendations, his treatment and advice. Very many times it was noticed that the allopathic treatment improves symptoms only temporarily, and hemorrhoids reoccur a short period of time after treatment is interrupted.
Nature always offers us the best variants which lead to the effective restoration of the blood vessels. For hemorrhoids and venous problems generally, we are referring to the chestnut. The chestnut has the most intense venotonic action, it restores vascular trophicity and strengthens vein walls.
Our researchers have reached the conclusion that the complex action of chestnut is boosted by the hellebore extract. Together they form a formidable pair supporting the complete disappearance of hemorrhoids.
Herbal treatment and recommendations
Following the recommendations below, your hemorrhoids can be healed completely:
- Start each meal with a salad of fresh vegetables;
- Eat a lot of fresh and raw foods in their natural state: vegetables, fruits, raw seeds, raw nuts;
- Eat fruit at least 30 minutes in advance before a meal or 1 hour and a half after the meal;
- Do not drink water during your meal;
- Do not consume meat together with starch containing food (potatoes, bread, pasta) – the stomach is not capable of digesting meat and starch containing food at the same time, and these products go into fermentation and putrefaction in the bowels, generating toxic compounds;
- Try to have fixed meal times with a break between them of 3-4 hours;
- Drink at least 2 l of water a day (preferably, spring water);
