Understand Piles

Why do Piles or Haemorrhoid occur?

We often face conditions like repetitive gas trouble, heart burns, etc in our daily lives, considering them to be silly and natural, we ignore them or they go unnoticed due to our busy lives. But over a period of time, our neglect causes them to take the form of chronic acidity, constipation, etc. hampering our whole metabolic mechanism. Eventually chronic digestive troubles lead to painful ano-rectal conditions like piles, fissures, and fistula, etc,. Due to the nature of the disease, one may fail to identify its progress in the beginning itself, as it may take years for the disease to mould to its complete form. By the time one recognizes the condition he/she may already be in great pain and misery, that they resort to a quick fix and hence adopt expensive treatment modes like surgery, etc,.
