What Are Hemorrhoids?
In this quick post we will discuss how to use CBD for Hemorrhoids and get some much needed relief. So, what exactly are hemorrhoids? Well hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are swollen veins in the lower part of the anal cavity in the rectum area. When the walls of these vessels are stretched they become irritated. Although hemorrhoids can be unpleasant and painful, they are typically easy to treat and preventable.
What Causes Hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids can develop from increased pressure in the lower rectum. This can be due to straining during bowel movements, sitting for long periods of time as truck drivers do on long hauls, also sitting on the toilet for long periods of time which some people do, or by having chronic diarrhea or more specifically constipation from a virus or even poor eating habits. Some people eat a very poor diet and they find themselves constipated almost on a weekly basis. We know that CBD helps with constipation. Also, we want people to be aware of the benefit of a good quality plant-based diet with CBD. They both work hand-in-hand very well together. Good clean dietary habits can help avoid constipation. One of the most common causes of hemorrhoids is that people just tend to push too hard during bowel movements. Sometimes it’s not their fault as it may be a prescription medication that’s causing the constipation.
Symptoms of Hemorrhoids
Symptoms of hemorrhoids depend on the type you have whether it’s internal or external. If you have external hemorrhoids you may have anal itching, and one or more hard little tender lumps near your anus. You may also experience anal ache or pain especially when sitting too much. Straining, rubbing or cleaning around the area may make the symptoms worse. For many people the symptoms of external hemorrhoids go away typically within three to five days. Below is an illustration of the two types of hemorrhoids. The little purple bump at the bottom of the illustration clearly shows the external hemorrhoid. It’s like a little bump on the end of the anus and the, and the internal hemorrhoids are a little further up inside.
Internal / External Hemorrhoids
If you have an internal hemorrhoid you may have bleeding from your rectum. It may appear as bright red blood on the stool, in the toilet, or on the toilet paper. A hemorrhoid that has fallen through the anal opening is called a prolapse. This is a more serious type of hemorrhoid and may require a doctor’s treatment or attention.
