How can hemorrhoids be treated?

I am 29 years old and a mother of a 3 years old. I had a natural delivery and developed hemmeroids after giving the birth. Initially it was not so severe but now its getting worse with blood during poop and alot of pain and discomfort. Has anyone experienced like me after the natural delivery? I am trying to cure it with home remedies but thinking about surgery as well. Has anyone done it. Please share your experience, thoughts and suggestions. Thanks

hi sir/madam,
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.

it can be easily treatable in Ayurveda.
Piles, also known as Hemorrhoids, are swollen veins of the anal canal. The inflammation may be internal, occurring inside the anus, or externally protruding through the anus. They are often associated with a long history of indigestion and constipation, resulting in hard stools. They can be dry or may bleed. External hemorrhoids produce less bleeding than internal ones, where the veins more frequently will burst.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice:-

1. Avoid the intake of heavy, dry, cool, and stale foods.

2. Avoid refined foods like jams, pastries, packaged, and canned foods.

3. Also avoid tea, coffee, aerated drinks, and alcoholic beverages.

4. Avoid pickles, potatoes, and root vegetables except radish and carrot.

5. Avoid excessive fasting, overeating, eating during indigestion, and eating incompatible food.

6. Increase the intake of whole-wheat flour, whole grains, brown rice, barley, legumes (lentils, beans, peas, chickpeas, soybeans, etc.), buttermilk, rock salt, Indian gooseberries (amla), green leafy vegetables, and foods that are rich in fiber.
