Hemorrhoids are the swelling of veins either inside the rectum (internal hemorrhoids) or on the skin surrounding the anus (external hemorrhoids). These are also referred to as “piles”. This is a common condition that around 75% of adults will deal with at various points in their lives.
There are a handful of causes, but straining the pelvic muscles is a primary cause. This can happen while straining during a bowel movement, or by lifting heavy objects or weights. Constipation, and the straining it can cause, can result in a hemorrhoid flare up.
Itchiness is a primary symptom of hemorrhoids. This can make any day-to-day activity, especially on the job or away from home, quite challenging due to the discomfort and distraction. They can also be painful; making sitting down very uncomfortable. Minor bleeding may also occur.
Homeopathics for hemorrhoids are available from Olloïs. Hamamelis-Virginiana-30c is 100% natural remedy that can improve circulation through the affected veins; helping to relieve the itchy discomfort and accelerate the healing process.
