Herbal Remedies for Hemorrhoids

In Ayurveda piles are called as Arsh, it has pain like pricking needle. There are three doshas – Vata, pitta and kapha in the body which represent a healthy body. Imbalance of any of three energies result in the health issues. Hemorrhoids are due to the vitiation of all the three energies. Aggravation in the pitta dosha causes the digestive problems like impairment of jathargni (digestive fire) and ama (toxins) accumulation in digestive gut. Vitiated vata dosha causes the piles (arsha).

These herbal remedies for hemorrhoids help to balance all the vitiated doshas in body without causing any side effects on health.
