Brief Answer: need more details Detailed Answer: Dear XXXXXXX Thanks for contacting Ayurveda with your Health query and although Dietary Regime and Lifestyle management is initiated from my side but for Medicine Aspect following points needs clarification. I understand you might be suffering with pain, bleeding and mucous discharge. Can you specify what are your exact symptoms? 1. Are you suffering from constipation [since it is cause and effect of both hypothyroidism and piles]? 2. Any associated digestive problem [since low digestive fire is cause of piles and hypothyroidism]? 3. Is your blood sugar, lipid profile in normal range? In the meanwhile, I suggest dietary regime that includes - take high fibre diet,fresh fruits and vegetables,avoid milk and milk products in diet, excess of tea,coffee,tobacco,alcohol and carbonated beverages. - eat slowly,avoid haste-irregular eating and sweet/heavy food which are difficult to digest and cause indigestion. - take less of strong spices (ginger,garlic), oily-fried-fatty food and flatus producing foods (peas,beans,dals) - take old rice,bottle gourd,moong dal XXXXXXX marich, pomegranate,jaiphal,hot water, adequate rest and sleep. - take fried cumin seeds 500mg, fried asafetida (hing) 125mg, XXXXXXX parpati 500mg, mix them and take with honey three times a day. - 1 glass lukewarm water every morning and night. - to stop bleeding:coconut water from 1 coconut and add 2 table spoon full (tsf) sugar and drink. - drink 1 cup potato juice daily for 1 month. - 4tsf sugar+ 4tsf bitter gourd juice and drink for 1 month - 3 pinches dried ginger+ 2 cup butter milk, drink after lunch and dinner for 1 month - eat 2 tsf plain white butter + 1 tsf sesame powder before lunch and dinner and drink 2 cup butter milk + 3-4 pinches of black salt after lunch and dinner - take: elephant yam, papaya, butter milk, pistachio, almonds, pear, XXXXXXX old rice, milk, crystallized sugar, raw radish and avoid tea,coffee,garlic,onion,fish,hot spices, sitting for long hours. PS: .if job demands sitting, make sure you get up every half an hour to relax for 5 minutes and then sit back,make a sponge cushion for your chair. . Again piles, hypothyroidism and weight gain are due to low digestive fire and taking amla & aloe vera juice will help in cleansing the liver to speed up the metabolism so can be taken safely. Please revert back with your clarifications Dr. Munish Sood Consultant & Physician Naimittika

Hi Doctor, Thanks for your quick response. Yes, I suffer from constipation. Blood sugar and lipid profile are in normal range. I do not have any digestion problem in particular, only little gastric trouble and indigestion at times. I drink warm water daily in the morning and take care of my diet. Trying to excercise and lose weight as well. I will try to incorporte your suggestions in my diet. I will start amla and aloevera juice to see if it helps me. Thanks so much
