It is well known that constipation causes hemorrhoids
, sometimes known as piles. Hemorrhoids are nothing more than swollen veins in and around the rectum much like varicose veins.
Hemorrhoids and Varicose Veins
What is common about varicose veins and hemorrhoids? They are both caused by muscle strain from eliminating our bowels. In our legs, the veins run back up your legs through some valves. Those valves keep the blood from falling back down our legs.
The strain and pressure brought on by constant constipation will damage the valves in our legs and thus not allow the free flow of blood back up our legs. The lack of free flow of blood manifests itself as ugly varicose veins.
Much like the veins in your legs, the veins in your anal area feed the sphincter muscle that ejects fecal matter from your body. Those veins will balloon and burst with the strain and pressure exerted with constipation.
If there is a physical obstruction in the colon, it will also cause constipation. Improper diet and lack of sufficient fluid intake can result in hardening of the fecal matter and consequent stressful effort in evacuating stool. Another cause of constipation can be fecal matter remaining too long in the colon.
If you continuously suffer from constipation, the veins in rectal area become filled with blood and they are stretched like balloons. Over time, they bulge and hang out of the rectum. They can become very painful and they will bleed and itch.
Here is a partial list of other hemorrhoid causes:
There are two kinds of hemorrhoids, external and internal.
appear on the outside rim of the anus. These are the hemorrhoids that commonly cause itching, burning, and pain. If it develops a clot, an external hemorrhoid can be very painful. If the hemorrhoid's blood supply is cut off, a clot is formed and is called thrombosis.
are inside the anus. You first become aware of internal hemorrhoids when you notice bleeding. They most likely are the cause of hardened stool rubbing against the hemorrhoids during evacuation.
Sometimes internal hemorrhoids protrude outside the anus with a grapelike appearance. These hemorrhoids are prolapsed and are painful.
Many people have successfully overcome hemorrhoids with natural treatment. Common sense will tell you that drinking plenty of water, eating healthy foods, and exercising daily will promote regular and easy bowel movements.
As stated earlier, the pressure and strain exerted by constipation cause hemorrhoids and varicose veins. Rectal and anal veins bulge and begin to itch and bleed with the over exertion caused by constipation. If not treated and healed, external hemorrhoids will develop into thrombosis and internal hemorrhoids will become prolapsed.
