Piles is a condition in which veins around the rectum and anal opening gets dilated and swollen. In this condition the patient passes suddenly streaks of bright red blood with the stool. The size of the piles can vary and they are found inside or outside the anus. Piles can occur due to chronic constipation, chronic diarrhea, lifting heavy objects, pregnancy or straining when passing a stool.
Causes of Piles
According to Ayurveda, well balanced Vata Dosha keeps the bowel contents moving correctly. Since it is a drying Dosha, its aggravation can cause the bowel contents to get dried and unable to move properly causing constipation. Vata Dosha causes constipation that is rough and dry with painful black coloured haemorrhoids. Piles occur due to the dominance of Pitta and Rakta.
