Ayurvedic medicines for piles and fissures: Is natural remedy an option?

The way we prioritise our lifestyle activities in the modern day has led to our health taking a significant hit. Irregular eating routines, junk food and problems related to digestion have resulted in a drastic increase in piles and fissures among people. Natural remedies and medicines from Kerala Ayurveda can help identify pain points in patients suffering from piles and related issues and nurture them on their journey to wellness.



The modern world has transformed people virtually into a blur where life moves at a hectic pace. We have shaped our lifestyles and day-to-day activities to accommodate this breathless journey between work and family. 

The result? The unimaginable toll it takes on our body and the gradual damage that takes place on a daily basis. Diseases and ailments commonly seen among 60 and 70 year olds a decade ago crop up widely in 30 and 40 year olds. 

One of the most prominent ailments seen in men and women who are in their late 30s and 40s that of piles and fistula.


Understanding Piles

Due to the way people have begun restructuring their lifestyles, eating habits take a huge hit. Unless uncorrected, this could lead to chronic diarrhoea, heavy strain on the rectum while passing stools due to frequent constipation finally ending in fissures and Haemorrhoids. 


The journey to recovery

While Ayurvedic medicines for piles do exist, correction of metabolic errors and lifestyle modification is the key to curing piles. Charting out a healthy diet plan and weeding out harmful activities from your daily routine can gradually help people with piles and fistula recover naturally.

Ayurveda has identified numerous herbs and natural ingredients that have proven to work as a remedy for piles. At Kerala Ayurveda, we have used these key ingredients to create Pilogest - an Ayurvedic proprietary oral supplement is to treating the root cause that leads to piles, anal bleeding and haemorrhoids. 

The unique combination of elephant foot yam and touch-me-not plant with extracts of Turmeric, Chitrak, Guggulu and Triphala, makes this one of the best ayurvedic medicine for piles and fistula.

Pilogest regulates your metabolism with a mild laxative action and helps facilitate easy bowel movement. Regular intake of Pilogest reduces pain, promotes shrinkage of pile mass and speeds up healing.
