How to cure piles through yoga?

By and large, piles is caused by chronic constipation. As a result of exerting pressure, while trying to evacuate your bowels, there is pressure on the veins causing them to distend and swell and, subsequently, rupture and give rise to other malfunctions, as well. This is why you should be careful right from the beginning and first and foremost, deal with constipation. Failing this, the rest of your efforts will be in vain.

Meanwhile, it is crucial to seek medical attention as well – an Ayurvaid would be best – and take both internal and external medication to soothe and relieve your symptoms. If you have bleeding, you should be even more serious as ruptured veins can lead to more complications. In the meantime, here is a prescribed program of Yoga for constipation and piles.
