Piles can be very painful and often bleed leading to a lot of discomforts, weakness, and anemia. There are a few lifestyle changes and home remedies which if adopted can give immense relief from the discomfort and often recovery from piles.
The habit of reading books or newspaper in the bathroom or watching mobiles is a major lifestyle change one should undertake. Reading makes you sit for a longer time on the seat, which in turn puts more pressure on the bowel movement, and also gives stress to the blood vessels. Both the above situations can lead to hemorrhoids. Stacks of newspaper and magazines should be removed from the bathroom.
We are all aware that drinking water is good for health, but not many follow it. Water intake prevents constipation and regularises the bowel movement. It is recommended to drink eight to ten glasses of water to smoothen the functioning of the digestive system.
A call for defecation should never be ignored or delayed. It may lead to hardening of stool in the intestine thereby increasing the risk of piles. A hard stool is difficult to pass and requires a lot of strain and pressure.
A fiber in diet help in keeping constipation away which otherwise aggravates piles. Following foods are rich in fiber and can be added to the diet,
Legumes like beans, peas, black beans, and baked beans.
Whole grains like oatmeal, barley, and brown rice.
Vegetables like radish, turnip, carrot, sprouts, broccoli, and many more.
