Hemorrhoids are veins that are enlarged and located inside the rectum (internal) or at the opening of the anus (external). They can cause constipation and straining during bowel movements, along with pain and bleeding. It is important to determine the cause of the hemorrhoids: insufficient fiber intake or even liver disease causing increased pressure in veins.
Naturopathic treatment for hemorrhoids at the Nardella Clinic in Calgary may involve:
- Dietary counseling to ensure adequate fiber intake and to remove any foods that could potentially be causing issues.
- Individualized supplementation to help heal tissue and support the vascular system
- Topical applications including herbal formulas to help reduce rectal swelling and pain
