Piles are painful, swollen veins in the lower portion of the rectum or anus. Piles results from increased pressure in the veins of the anus. The pressure causes the veins to bulge and expand, making them painful, especially while sitting.
The reason of piles is anal infections and some other disease such as liver cirrhosis. Prolonged sitting or standing, overweight, pregnancy, a diet lacks of fiber.
External Piles occur atJ the anal opening and may hang outside the anus. External piles are present on the skin around anus and can be seen or felt from the outside. The main symptoms are pain, swelling or lump around the anus. Itching and bleeding may appear when the lump is irritated.
Internal piles lie deep inside the anal at the beginning of the rectum and cannot be felt or seen from the outside. They are painless owing to lack of pain receptors in the area in which they appear. The only symptom they cause is bleeding in anus while straining to pass stool.
Homeopathy is a popular treatment of piles and natural alternative to surgery. Homeopathic medicines permanently cure piles without surgical intervention. Several remedies are available for Homeopathy for piles treatment that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensations and modalities of the complaints. In this post I will share a very helpful remedy in the treatment of piles:
Aesculus Hippocastanum is often supposed to be suitable to haemorrhoids that do not bleed, but it cures bleeding piles also. The back is the seat of much trouble, especially low down in the back, through the sacrum and hips; although there is also aching all along the back and pain in the back of the neck. It is a very common thing for patients suffering from hemorrhoids to have pain in the back of the neck and base of the brain, basilar headaches, and when these haemorrhoidal patients undertake to walk they have pain aching across the sacrum into the hips. This pain through the sacrum and into the hips, when walking, is a striking feature of Aesculus, so strking that you may expect it to be present even when there are no hemorrhoids. Constant dull backache, walking is almost impossible, scarcely able to rise or walk after sitting. To rise from sitting make many painful efforts before he finally succeeds. Aesculus is indicated often times in the troubles of women, with great dragging pain in the pelvis. Many a time has Aesculus cured the dragging down pain of the pelvis with copious leucorrhoea and pressing pain in the hips when walking. The woman feels that the uterus is engorged. She says that the lower part of the abdomen feels full, both before and during menstruation. Varicose veins of the thighs and legs have been cured by Aesculus (Fluoric acid). This varicose tendency in the body we have already seen is a striking feature of Aesculus. After the sore throat has passed away, engorged veins are left, which Aesculus sometimes cures.
Bathing the per anal area in warm water can ease out the acute pain in a significant manner . This possibly relaxes the anal sphincter and gives relief from the pain.
Drink six to eight glasses of fluid this can help in reducing the hardness of the stools.

Regular exercise including walking can be very effective in piles because exercise is very useful for digestive system.
