Piles are hemorrhoids that become inflamed. Hemorrhoids are masses, clumps, cushions of tissue in the anal canal - they are full of blood vessels, support tissue, muscle and elastic fibers.

Although hemorrhoids are thought of as unpleasant inflammations, we all have them. It is when the hemorrhoidal cushions become too big (inflamed) ; they are called piles or pathological hemorrhoids.

Ayurvedic diet, Panchakarma like Virechana - Basti and Arshoghna mixtures help the patients to recover from pain and discomfort without disturbing the architecture of rectum and to avoid surgery.
