Treating Haemorrhoids (Piles) (Hemorrhoids) with Aloe VeraDescription: Haemorrhoids (piles) are vascular lumps inside, outside, and around your bottom (anus). Many people have them and don't even know as they only give a problem when they become swollen or inflamed. Internal hemorrhoids often result in painless, bright red rectal bleeding when defecating. External hemorrhoids often result in pain and swelling in the area of the anus. They often get better on their own after a few days.
For others they can last a long time, even years. If this is the case, then it is appropriate to speak to your doctor, just so that any serious causes of the symptoms can be ruled out first.
Symptoms of piles include: bright red blood after you poo, an itchy anus, feeling like you still need to poo after going to the toilet, slimy mucus in your underwear or on toilet paper after wiping your bottom, lumps around your anus, pain around your anus.
Drink lots of fluid and eat plenty of fibre to keep your poo soft. Don't strain on the loo, or wipe your bum with too much pressure. This is because risk factors can include constipation, diarrhea, and sitting on the toilet for a long time. You are not alone. Approximately 50% to 66% of people have problems with haemorrhoids at some point in their lives.
Precautionary note: You may notice, if you wipe your bum with too much pressure, you can cause bleeding in the vascular bundles at the entrance or to the side of the anus. This not only causes an injury site and scabbing, you may also inadvertently, increase the chances of fecal matter entering the damage site. Obviously, you will want to avoid this at all costs and so light pressure with, perhaps, damp cleaning wipes, may be more appropriate.
What can I do about Haemorrhoids (piles)?
If you want to treat your condition naturally, or in conjunction with a conventional treatment, you might like to try using our Aloe Vera gel. The gel contains dozens of different nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, sugars, anthraquinones or phenolic compounds, lignin, saponins, sterols and salicylic acid. Often these are the very constituents found in your medication.
How do I use my gel when it arrives?
Take a frozen cube of your gel and allow it to dissolve and warm to room temperature. Use this time to clean around your haemorrhoid/s and hands with an anti-bacterial tissue. Dry thoroughly.
Apply your gel to the haemorrhoid/s using a clean, new cottom pad. Dab all around the haemorrhoid and the anal opening. Allow to dry in situ. This will only take a minute or so because the gel will oxidize and set. Reapply often during the day, making sure to use a clean cotton pad to apply the gel each time and disgard after a single use, to prevent any risk of infection or contamination of your gel.
The Aloe vera gel will soothe the affected area and create a cooling effect on the skin which will help reduce further itching, redness, inflammation, and discomfort.
Special note: You do not need to use a new cube of gel each time. As long as you haven't contaminated it by dipping a used pad into it, you can use it up until it is all gone. Even with repeated applications, one cube could last a good day or two if you keep what remains in the fridge. This extends the life of your gel to weeks or months, making it really good value for money.

Disclaimer: Aloe Vera is known to be a wonderful cure-all around the world and back again. But it is always best to keep an open mind on both sides of the orthodox and natural remedies debate, and cherry pick the best solution on a condition by condition basis. Natural remedies alone may not always help to cure your condition, especially if there are contributory factors. If the condition worsens or takes longer than anticipated to recover, you are advised to contact your doctor. Normally, your aloe may be used along with any conventional medical treatment offered.
