Haemorrhoids/Cushions are a diseased condition, commonly known as piles. The symptoms of piles match well with Arsha. It has been mentioned in Ayurveda that due to faulty dietary habits and sedentary lifestyle, digestion becomes weak (Mandagni) and as a result, the excess accumulation of Mala (waste) occurs in the body. In addition to that, due to various faulty habits, vitiation of Apana Vayu occurs, which causes more obstruction of Mala and pushes it inside, ultimately resulting in the formation of Arsha. Weak digestion and constipation, being major causative factors for piles, the treatment is focused to promote healthy digestion. Ayurveda tackles piles with the customized diet and lifestyle modifications. In addition to that, Ayurvedic healers emphasize regularizing bowel movements. In Ayurvedic prescription for piles, specific combinations of advanced detoxification ingredients are recommended to cleanse the accumulated Ama (Toxins) along with tailor-made wellness products to enhance digestion.
