CLASSIFICATION OF Piles
Hemorrhoids are classified into external or internal hemorrhoids depending on the location of vein swelling and inflammation in the lowest part of the intestine. External hemorrhoids develop in the exterior skin covering the anus. The veins swell and form clots causing severe pain and bleeding from the anus especially during bowel movement. This condition increases the risk of infections and complications. Internal hemorrhoids are developed inside the rectum and generally don’t hurt as they have only few pain-sensing nerves.
AYURVEDIC TREATMENT FOR piles ( HEMORRHOIDS )

According to Ayurveda, hemorrhoids are developed from the vitiation of doshas in the body mainly the Apana vatha that control functions such as excretion of urine and stool from the body. Vitiation of doshas causes accumulation of waste products and varicosity of veins resulting in constipation and pain followed by bleeding during bowel movements.
