What Are Hemroids?
Hemroids can be two kinds: internal and external. Internal hemroids are inside the anus or rectum, beneath the anal or rectal lining. External hemroids are outside the anus. However, internal hemroids may protrude outside the body, becoming irritated and painful. This is also known as a protruding hemroid.
The precise physiological development of hemroids is unknown. There are a number of reasons to explain swelling, including that upright posture pressures the anal area and veins in the rectum can cause hemroids. Aging, chronic constipation or diarrhea, obesity, pregnancy, straining too much during bowel movements are considered contributing factors and/or irritants to hemroids. In addition, excessive rubbing or cleaning may cause irritation with bleeding and/or itching, which may produce a vicious cycle of hemroids symptoms.
Heredity may contribute in some cases. There is no evidence that hemroids are caused by jobs that require standing, for example, the lifting of heavy objects being seated, although such activities can make preexisting hemroids worse.
Although many people have hemroids, not all experience symptoms. The common symptom of internal hemroids is red blood covering the stool. Symptoms of bleeding hemroids may include painful swelling or a hard lump that results when a blood clot forms. This condition is a thrombosed external hemroid. Draining mucus may also cause rectal itching.
So what's a cure besides hemroids surgery? Not Preparation H! Treating hemroids with PrepH is to a hemorroid as calamine lotion is to treating poison ivy. Get serious about hemroid treatment! Hemmoroids might hang around for a while if the cause is not treated.
What are the best treatments for thrombosed hemorids? Treatments don't have to be expensive. Get some hemmorids anti-itch cream to calm the hemroids down and have a good natural treatment formulated to relieve symptoms.
Calomel/lard - Mix a half ounce of heated lard with a dram (teaspoonful) of Calomel and apply as a salve on a piece of cotton. This has cured obstinate cases.
Take 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of cayenne in a glass of H2O to stop bleeding hemroids. Take this for several days until the hemeroids are gone, then once or twice a week for a good maintenance dose. This will clear up hemoriods and keep them from recurring.
A diet consisting of a lot of cranberries may be beneficial.
Relief of hemroid symtoms may be as easy as a herbal remedy containing horse chestnut and other ingredients known to reduce hemiroid inflammation like butcher's broom (Ruscus aculeatus) and flavonoids (plant pigments found in fruits, tea, and soy).
Hemorrohoid Therapies - How to Heal Hemroids
Alternative hemroid treatments - Like practitioners, alternative practitioners stress the importance of a high-fiber hemmriods diet. To prevent hemorrhids by strengthening the veins of the rectum, and colon, advisors recommend blackberries, blueberries, cherries and vitamin C.
Herbal teas, ointments, and hemrhoids suppositories, and herbal preparations, are suggested for reducing hemorid discomfort and eliminating a hemerhoid. In particular, pilewort (Ranunculusficaria), applied in an hemroids ointment or taken as a tea, can reduce the pain of bleeding hemroids.
Healing Methods and Techniques
Acupuncture, acupressure, aromatherapy, and homeopathy are also used to treat a hemroid.
Alternative Healing Therapies
Nutrition • Eat in a relaxed atmosphere, breathing and chewing food thoroughly. • Eat smaller, more frequent meals and avoid over eating at one sitting. • Eliminate refined foods, sugars, caffeine, alcohol, and dairy. • Decrease saturated fats and increase polyunsaturated fats (fish, nuts, and seeds). • Increase fresh vegetables and whole, as well as liquid intake. • Stewed or soaked prunes, one to three daily have a slightly laxative effect and may help soften stools and irritate hemmhroids less. • Ascorbic Acid (1,000 mg two to three times daily) supports the integrity of connective tissue. • Vitamin E (400 to 800 IU per day) promotes healing.
Hemroid Remedies - How to Treat Hemroids Pain at Home
Hemmoroides pain can be relieved in a warm tub for about 10 compress (Sitz Bath).
Treatment begins with wiping the hammeroid clean with a moistened towelet or pad to lessen irritation.
A cool hemmoriod compress or ice pack reduces pain and inflammation. (The ice pack should be encased in a towel to prevent touching of the hemorriod.)
Over-the-counter creams and foams may bring creams relief, but these hemmeriods remedies do not make hemroids disappear.
Bleeding hemroids may slow if you have two teaspoonfuls of apple cider vinegar in water at every meal.
Hemroids and Constipation
Avoid constipation by eating a high-fibrous diet, consisting mainly of fruits and whole-grains. Choose to defecate when you are not rushed, and do not ignore the urge to defecate.
Anal Sex and Hemroids
Are himroids caused by anal sex? Well, ya! Hemroids are caused by undue pressure on the venous walls of the anus, whether it's from heavy lifting, pregnancy or sticking foreign objects in the rectum. Often anal sex causes tearing which results in bleeding. That's a fissure which is not a hemmeriod. Fissures should heal shortly if not aggravated.
Banding - A rubber band is placed around the hemoroides inside the rectum. The band cuts off circulation and the hemmoroid withers away within a few days.
Hemrrhoids Sclerotherapy - A chemical solution is injected in the hemorrhiods blood vessel to shrink the hemoriod.
Infrared Hemroids Coagulation - A special hemorrhiod device is used to burn hemorrhoidal tissue. Hemorrhoidectomy - Occasionally, extensive or severe internal or external hermeroids may require hemerhoids removal by surgery known as hemorrhoidectomy.
This site does not include hemmorrhoids pictures. The hemeriods color photos are very grotesque and are readily available elsewhere on the Internet. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but hemroids pics are best left as an unspoken image.
How Do you spell it? Hemrroids or Hemorroids?
Never mind how hemorrids is spelled. Hemorhoids are hemoroids. (The correct spelling of hemorroides you ask? Hemorrhoids! Hemoroid is spelled all kinds of ways on this site - just for fun!)
Hemmo should not be confused with the prefix hemo which means blood, although a hemmorid is a swollen blood vessel. A hemorrrhoids vein is one that has become swollen and irritated. These are likely incorrect spellings as well: hemmorrod.
