How helpful yoga in piles


Piles, also known as hemorrhoids, is a common condition that affects people all over the world. Although the condition is not considered to be life threatening, it can cause a lot of pain. This condition occurs due to an inflammation of the veins either outside or inside the rectum. There will be a lot of pain, but less bleeding in the case of external piles. However, with internal piles there will be a discharge of blood. Bleeding piles results when the veins burst.
Yoga for piles can be effective, especially with internal piles. Practicing yoga for piles helps in bringing relief to the pain that comes with internal piles. Some of the effective yoga asanas for piles treatment are Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation), Sirsasana (Head Stand Pose), Chakrasana (Wheel Pose), Tadasana (Mountain Pose), Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand Pose), and Uttanasana (Standing Forward Pose). Practicing yoga for piles helps in reducing discomfort when the stools are being passed. It also helps to reduce constipation and digestive problems. The yoga postures enable the flushing out of toxins from the body and also in improving the circulation of blood.
Practicing yoga for piles helps cure problems related to the bowels. The asanas that tend to concentrate on the midsection of the body will be helpful. You could start with mild forward bends as a warm-up, and then move on to spinal twists that help massage the area of the midsection. You could then perform asanas that stretch the midsection like Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward Facing Dog) and after that Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog). You could end your session by putting your arms round your knees and moving back and forth as a spinal massage.
Sometimes, women tend to suffer from piles after a normal delivery. Most often, they aren’t sure whether practicing yoga is advisable after a giving birth. Practicing the less intense yoga postures can be beneficial, but make sure to seek the advice of a doctor before you begin any yoga regimen after a normal delivery. It is also essential that you maintain a diet that is rich in fiber to prevent the recurrence of piles. You should also avoid taking fried and spicy foods. By combining a healthy diet with regular exercise and yoga, you should be able to get relief.  However, if you don’t get any permanent results with treatments like medications, home remedies and the yoga asanas for piles, surgery could be the last option.

Yoga can be very beneficial in relieving bowel troubles. As a first line of defense, it might be useful to focus asanas on the mid-section. Try gentle forward bends to warm up the area and then proceed to spinal twists to massage the mid-section area. Stretch out your mid-section with upward facing dogs, followed by downward facing dogs. Finally,finish up with some spinal massages – wrap your arms around your knees and rock back and forth on your mat.  When you have done your series of asanas, do not forget to relax on your mat and finish up your practice with meditation. Also adding some of the elements of a yogic lifestyle may help with your bowel difficulties. One of the key elements of the yogic lifestyle is strict vegetarianism.  Sometimes the meat we eat and cause our bowels to word harder than normal, sometimes causing bowel troubles. A strict yogic diet of fruits and vegetables, even for a short period of time,can clear your bowels and relieve you of your troubles.

However,if your practice yoga,particularly asanas which focus on your mid-section and you receive no relief,it is suggested you see a doctor,as your problem may not be one that can be solved with yoga or diet changes.
