This article will briefly tell you about the problem of hemorrhoids, what you can do to cure them, and suggest some improvements you can make to your lifestyle that will benefit you.
Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are caused by inflammation around the anal area. This can be due to many factors, including a lack of fiber in the diet, not enough fruit and vegetables, and not drinking enough fluids, especially water. Exercise and general fitness also contribute to keeping hemorrhoids or piles away.
Hemorrhoids or piles and varicose veins are very similar, in fact hemorrhoids are actually varicose veins which are located around the anus or rectum. Pregnant women may have a predisposition to these due to hormonal changes, and due to the decreasing of blood flow from the legs to the pelvis and surrounding areas. However, too much sitting or too much standing may predispose anyone, not just pregnant women, to the condition.
If you spend long periods at a desk, or standing, it is very important to stretch and move around regularly, at the very least once an hour. This is similar to the exercises that are recommended for long haul flights to help avoid Deep Vein Thrombosis. Stretch, bend up and down, swing your arms, and get the blood flowing to boost your circulation. This combined with daily exercise such as walking or swimming will all go to alleviate the condition. Sports such as weight-lifting or power-lifting may aggravate the piles and should be avoided where possible in order to avoid a flare-up.
