Piles, fistula and fissures are the most common problems affecting the rectum and the anus. Both the rectum as well as the anus has a very rich vascular supply. There could be swelling of these blood vessels or tearing which can lead to the above conditions. Physicians of Ayusshmanapply the uniqueness of ayurveda to the patients for permanent recovery from this problem in following manner : Healing of the wound: Pain, itching and uneasiness in the anal region are the main manifestations of the Anal fissure and these create a lot of uneasiness to a patient, so the first step is to relive someone from all these symptoms of the Anal fissure so that a patient can manage his life properly. For this main important thing is to heal the wound- the fissure- which is moreover a cut in the skin of the anal ring. Quick healing of this wound is hard because during defecation (passing of stool) it is again injured and it causes a lot of problems with a patient. This is the reason Ayurveda recommends to heal it with the best antibiotic, which is friendly to your body and never leaves any side effect on the body. Softening of the Stool : This is the second step, because improper bowel movements are the basic cause of the Anal Fissure. This might be frequent defecation or constipation, whenever there are problems with the digestive system, it causes a lot of problems with the anus and can cause anal fissure. In this the main part is the softening of the stool in this step, so that hard stool will stop hurting the anus skin and will not complicate the condition of the Anal Fissure.
Proper Bowel Movements: These are the toxins in the system, which cause a lot of problems with the digestive system and until unless these toxins stay in the body these will keep on creating problems with the body- either anal fissure or some other conditions.
