What does Ayurveda say about the treatment of piles?
The aim of Ayurveda is to balance the three doshas of the body – Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
In Ayurveda, it is said to balance the digestive system of the body. Good and proper digestion is based on the digestive fire (fire) and its power. It is also said that the digestive fire is at its fastest during the afternoon. Therefore, it is suggested that people should consume their heaviest meal in the afternoon and keep their dinner and other meals light.
The excretory process in the body is controlled by Vata dosha, as it keeps the bowel movements proper and functional.
When the vata dosha is aggravated or becomes imbalanced, the contents of the intestine dry up and obstruct proper bowel movement leading to constipation. Unbalanced Vata dosha causes painful piles as well as constipation.
An imbalance in the pitta dosha can lead to excessive diarrhea, excessive thirst, and swollen piles that bleed.
In addition, an imbalance in the Kapha dosha can lead to mild piles.
Therefore, it is necessary to balance all the three doshas for complete treatment of piles.
