This article includes all the causes, symptoms, stages, risk factors, management do’s and don’ts of piles.

Herbal Remedies for Piles


Piles are also known as Haemorrhoids. The word hemorrhoid is derived from the Greek word “haemorrhoids, meaning veins liable to discharge blood. Haemorrhoids are swollen veins in the lower part of the anus and rectum. When the walls of these vessels stretch, they can become irritated. This causes painful defecation, itching, and rectal bleeding. The rectum is the last part of the bowel, which leads to the anus, where the faecal matter leaves the body. There are hemorrhoidal tissues in this area, made up of blood vessels, connective tissues, and some muscles. These tissues act like cushions that protect the walls of the rectum and anus. Haemorrhoids are associated with various conditions but oftenly it is thought that it is related to straining for bowel movements.

Haemorrhoids are also caused by lifting heavy objects and being overweight. Increased straining during pregnancy also leads to piles. Haemorrhoids are painful if they are recurrent. The early stages of piles are less harmful, but if they are avoided for a long time, they can be problematic and serious. At the initial stages, the piles are manageable by themselves, but in the later stages, one should consult the doctor.  Late management may also lead to further diseases like fistula in anus fibroids, etc. So one should not avoid or take this problem lightly.

Types of Haemorrhoids

  1. Internal Hemorrhoids.
  2. External Haemorrhoids.

Internal Haemorrhoids

These haemorrhoids develop inside the rectum. These are usually not visible to the naked eye. They have a feature of protrusion (bulging out) through the anal opening while defecating. If they are prolapsed, they cannot be refigured to their normal positions in any mode, either by any instrument or manually. This also causes bleeding during defecation. The blood is bright red in colour, and the pattern of blood is drop by drop. It is caused by excessive straining during defecation, constipation, or passing hard stools.

External Haemorrhoids

These haemorrhoids develop under the skin around the anus externally. These are the most uncomfortable haemorrhoids. These haemorrhoids cause itching, discomfort, swelling around the anus, and bleeding. Also they are painful and sometimes feel lumpy. Sometimes blood gets clots within the external hemorrhoid, this condition is known as thrombosed hemorrhoid which can also lead to pain also.Usually this clot gets dissolved on its own but if not, the doctor removes that clot.

Causes of Hemorrhoids

There are many causes of haemorrhoids but some main causes are as follows:

  • The main cause of piles/haemorrhoids is straining during defecation or bowel movements. Attaining pressure during defecation leads to friction in the muscles of the anus, which is the starting point of haemorrhoids.
  • The second main cause of piles, which people don’t even consider to be a factor in developing haemorrhoids, is sitting for a long period of time on the toilet seat. People even do not think that this can lead them to the starting stage of haemorrhoids. But this is the most common factor that is responsible for piles.
  • Having chronic diarrhoea and constipation. Constipation results in the tearing of muscles around the skin of the anus, which leads to the hard stools finally resulting in piles and excessive pain during defecation.
  • Obesity: Haemorrhoids are more common in obese people because of their heavy weight, prolonged sitting, low or inadequate intake of fibre in their diet and decreased physical activity. These all factors lead to piles.
  • Pregnancy: Pregnant women are more affected by haemorrhoids as the growing baby puts pressure on the large veins present behind the uterus.
  • Having anal intercourse:- It also leads to discomfort and makes you more likely to have haemorrhoids.
  • Eating a low fibre diet: Low fibre rich diet leads to constipation which finally results in hard stool and due to straining during bowel movements it causes piles.
  • Regularly lifting heavy weights: Lifting heavy weights like dumbbells in gym leads to pressure in the abdominal region which causes straining during defecations finally leads to haemorrhoids.

Symptoms of Hemorrhoids/Piles

Generally symptoms of haemorrhoids depend upon the type of hemorrhoid (internal, external or thrombosed hemorrhoid).  There are different symptoms of different haemorrhoids. Some common symptoms of haemorrhoids are:

  • Constipation
  • Bleeding during defecation.
  •  Pain sometimes becomes severe.
  •  Discomfort.
  •  Itching.
  •  Swelling around anus.
  •  Inflammation.
  • Hard and discoloured lump near anus.

Diagnosis of Piles/ Hemorrhoids

Digital Examination of  external haemorrhoids: These are diagnosed by checking the area around the anus whether there is inflammation, redness or not.

Physical examinations

Also eating habits, toilet habits ,enema, laxatives use will be asked by the doctor. These all are included in the history taking. These factors are important to know before the starting of any management

Visual Examination

For the diagnosis of  internal haemorrhoids there is visual rectal examination. Haemorrhoids in the internal part are seen on the 3 positions that are  3 o’clock, 7 o’clock and 11 o’clock positions of the rectum.

Management of Piles/Hemorrhoids

Mild pain, swelling, inflammation and itching of haemorrhoids can be relieved with some home remedies.

  1.  Eat high fibre food: Eat more food which is rich in fibre. This will help in softening the stool and increasing its bulk. This will help in avoiding straining as we discussed above that straining is the main  lead cause of piles.
  2. Take a sitz bath twice daily: By soaking the anal region in the plain water for 10 to 15 minutes thrice daily . Sitz baths are beneficial in reducing swelling and pain around the anus.
  3.  Use of laxatives: Laxatives like isabgol are beneficial in constipation as constipation leads to piles.
  4.  Use of topical oils and creams: Apply hemorrhoidal creams externally to avoid swelling and pain around the anus.
  5.  Use of pain relievers: Painkillers are used to avoid pain.

If the bleeding doesn’t stops then further procedures are performed which are as follows:

  1. Rubber band ligation.
  2. Sclerotherapy.
  3. Coagulation.

Some Surgical Procedures

  1. Hemorrhoidectomy/hemorrhoid removal.
  2. Hemorrhoidal stapling.

Surgeries are not the solution to get rid of haemorrhoids. In ayurveda, there are many ways which are explained to manage piles. These are the best managements given by different acharyas in different ways. Ayurveda has the best management of piles whether it is at initial stages or at their severity.

Ayurvedic View on Piles/Hemorrhoids

In ayurveda,  acharyas use  the term  arsha to explain  piles or haemorrhoids. As explained in ayurveda, the body is made of three doshas that are vaat, pitta, kapha and 7 dhatus that are rasa (plasma), rakta (blood), mansa (muscles), meda (fat), asthi (bones), majja (bone marrow), and shukra (sperm). The imbalance in one of these doshas and dhatu leads to various diseases in the body. However, arsha is a tridoshaj vikara (disease) in which all the doshas are predominant. Moreover vaat is mostly affected by dosha in arsha.

Types of Arsha

  1. Sehaj (which are inherited by birth).
  2. And some which are caused after birth.

According to the Doshas


These are dried, very hard, rough and dark in colour and also are very painful. Pain gets aggravated around the testicles, bladder, and ovaries. There is also difficulty in passing urine, and stools. Headache, rhinitis, inflammation, and dizziness are also symptoms of vataj arsha.


These are soft, loose, untouchable, red,  yellowish, black in colour. They  are sweaty and have a foul smell. There is yellow and red discharge from anus.


These types of arsha are largely spreaded, fatty, white in colour, inflamed.


These are the bleeding types of arsha.

Nidan of Arsha (Causative Factors)

गुरु मधुर शीताभिष्यन्दि विदाहि विरुद्धाजीर्ण प्रमिताशना सात्म्य भोजनाद्गव्

मात्स्य वाराह माहिषा जाविक पिशित भक्षणात् कृश शुष्क पूतिमांस ( Charaka chikitsa 14/9)

This means that heavy, sweet, cold, vidahi aahar (which results in burning sensations), abhishyandi aahar (which is heavy but also slimy in nature. It causes obstruction in the channels which leads to distractions in the secretions by the system of the body).  These all are some of the factors which are responsible for piles/arsha . Regular eating of meat of cattle, fish also leads to arsha.


Arsha/piles are caused by mandagni (low digestive fire). Due to mandagni  there is mala avrodh(obstruction in passing faecal matter) and gets accumulated. Due to these factors, accumulated mala enters the hemorrhoidal veins with the help of vata. This  accumulated mala pressurise  the veins which finally leads to arsha

Samprapti Ghataka

Dosha:- Vaat pradhan tridoshas.

Dushya:- Mansa (muscles), meda (fat), rakta (blood), twaka (skin).

Adhisthana:-guda (anus).

Symptoms of Arsha According to Ayurveda

  1.  Mal Badhta (constipation)
  2.  Daha and Shoola in guda (burning sensation and pain around the anal region).
  3.  Atisaar (Diarrhoea) specifically in piitaj arsha.
  4.  Rakt pravah (bleeding from anal region).
  5.  Atoopa and Adhmana (Flatulence).

Management of Arsha in Ayurveda

Arsha/piles are managed in different ways and with different medical herbs. In Ayurvedic Samhitas that are (Charaka and Shushruta) there is well explained management of piles/ arsha.

Management by Acharya Charaka

Acharya charaka has mentioned two types of chikitsa that are shaman and shodhan.

Shaman chikitsa

It means formulations which control the doshas of the body and bring them to their own places. For this acharya charaka has mentioned many such medications like arsha kuthara rasa (tablets), chandraprabha vati (tablets), some powdered churna like vijay churna and some decoctions like takrarishta etc.

Shodhan Chikitsa

Basti karma (medicated enema by various decoctions) Picha basti is the most effective management of arsha. This basti is prepared by some dravyas like yavasa, kusha, kasha, shalmali,nayogra, udumber etc. these all dravyas have the best effect on arsha. Likewise there are some other basti which can be given like anuvasana basti. Basti is considered as the best management of vata dosha. As arsha is a vata dominant disease, basti works excellently on it.

Kshar sutra

Some acharya considered it better to ligate the pile mass by a medicated thread called kshar sutra and cut it off. This thread is changed after 7 days with the new medicated thread.


This is done to shred the pile mass with the help of shalaka.

What is Arsha (Hemorrhoids/Piles) and Its Ayurvedic Management


Arsh, is the Sanskrit name for piles or hemorrhoids. Piles have become quite common and are affecting people at almost every age. Children and adults are equally suffering from this condition. Whether male or female both of the genders are getting affected and “why is this happening” is a very big question. The main credit for the occurrence of this condition goes to the lifestyle and diet style people are following these days. People nowadays are putting their bodies at risk by themselves to get prone for such conditions. In this article we discuss Arsh or piles in detail along with its best To best Ayurvedic management.

Arsha (Hemorrhoids)


So, let’s start with the definition of Piles. What are piles?

Arsh/ Piles/ Hemorrhoids are the swollen and inflamed veins which are present around the anus or inside your lower rectum. The veins in the anorectal region often get torturous when there is presence of extreme pressure like in case of difficult defecation, prolonged straining while sitting on the toilet or due to prolonged sitting hours. There are two types of the piles according to modern: External Piles and internal Piles. External piles are the ones which generally develop thrombosis and become too painful. On the other hand the internal piles are the ones which are above the dentate line and can prolapse. Their prolapse is understood in degrees and these types of piles are painless but can bleed.

If understood from the Ayurvedic view point then piles/ Haemorrhoids is termed as Arsh. Arsh is mentioned in ayurveda by various Aacharayas along with its types and symptoms. AYurveda also explains deep management of this condition. Now, Moving forward let us discuss details about arsh or piles according to both modern and Ayurveda.

Causes of Arsh or Piles

Modern science suggests some typical causes of piles. They are as listed below

  • The first one is constipation. Constipation is responsible for putting or enhancing the pressure on rectum and finally results in the torturous rectal veins. That’s how internal and external piles develop in an individual.
  • Secondly, The naturally increasing pressure on rectum is due to pregnancy. With the increasing fetus size, the uterus puts pressure on the rectum and thus can result in development of piles.
  • Thirdly, recurrent or severe diarrhea can also result in the same. This is most common with patients of Ulcerative colitis, Irritable bowel disease and Crohn’s.
  • Straining for a long time, lifting weights, sitting for long times, having excessive spicy food, intake of alcohol and too much refined grains are also the reasons for this.

On the other hand Ayurveda suggests following as the causes for developing piles. Referring Charak Samhita Chikitsa sthana chapter 14 verse 9, Following are considered to be the causes

गुरु मधुर शीताभिष्यन्दि विदाहि विरुद्धाजीर्ण प्रमिताशना सात्म्य भोजनाद्गव्य

Take of heavy, sweet, cold, abhishyandi aahar (food which is heavy and slimy) , vidahi aahar (Results in burning sensation in stomach) along with mutually contraindicated food, having food before the digestion of previous meals, eating small meals along with unwholesome food articles

पैष्टिक परमान्न क्षीर दधि मण्ड तिलगुड विकृति –

Excessive intake of milk, rice and sugar preparations, along with milk and whey, preparations of sesame seed and jaggery products

सेवनान्माषयूषेक्षुरस पिण्याक पिण्डालुक शुष्क शाक- शुक्तल शुन किलाट तक्र पिण्डक बिस मृणाल शालूक क्रौञ्चादन कशेरुक शृङ्गाटकतरूट विरूढ नव शूक शमी- धान्याममूलकोपयोगाद्गुरु फल शाक राग हरितक मर्दक वसा शिरस्पद पर्युषित पूति शीत सङ्कीर्णान्नाभ्यवहारान्मन्द – कातिक्रान्त मद्यपानाद्व्यापन्न

Along with this intake of heavy fruits, vegetables, pickles, uncooked vegetables , muscle fat, meat of head and legs of animals, food prepared with the mixture of different items like rice and meat. In addition, intake of wrongly fermented wines.

Above mentioned along with intake of heavy and polluted water, excess of oleation therapy, never performing panchkarma that is elimination therapies and improper enema therapy. Plus lack of exercise, lack of sexual activity and sl;eeping during day time can also cause it.

Symptoms of Piles/Arsh/Haemorrhoids

Both of the sciences have explained almost similar symptoms for this condition. These are as following

  • Constipation (Mal badhta)
  • Pain and burning in anal region (daha/ shoola in gudda)
  • Diarrhea (atisaar/ excessive , mala pravruti)
  • Sometimes even bleeding per anus is also observed (rakta sarava from gudda dawara)
  • Flatulence (aatop and aadhmaan)

Types of Piles/Arsh/ Haemorrhoids

In Ayurveda, the types of arsh are explained according to the predominance of dosha. Types are as following

  • Vataj Arsh (having predominance of vata dosha)
  • Piitaj Arsh (having predominance of pitta dosha)
  • Kaphaj Arsh (having predominance of kapha dosha)
  • Raktaj Arsh (bleeding piles)

In modern Science there are two types of piles. The modern types are as below

  • Internal Piles
  • External piles

Internal Piles

They are having a typical feature of protrusion through anal opening while defecation. If prolapsed, then can not be retired to their position even manually. Otherwise manual reduction is possible. This type causes bleeding during bowel movements sometimes. Blood is bright red in color and comes drop by drop. It is mostly due to excessive pressure in the rectal area due to constipation or hard stools.

External Piles

They cause itching and irritation in anal region. Also result in discomfort along with pain, bleeding and swelling around anus region. Likely to get thrombosed and become extremely painful. Thrombosed pile is a hard lump near the anus.
