At Dr. Tathed’s Homeopathy Clinic, we frequently see patients suffering from common and painful anal conditions like piles (hemorrhoids) and anal fissures. Many want to avoid conventional medical treatments like creams, ointments, and surgery and are looking for natural remedies. As an experienced homeopath, Dr. Tathed offers a holistic approach focused on stimulating the body’s self-healing abilities to reduce symptoms and promote healing without invasive procedures.
Understanding Piles and Fissures:
Drawing from decades of experience, Dr. Tathed has found that piles and fissures are often caused by underlying constitutional weaknesses rather than just being local symptoms. Contributing factors he commonly sees include genetics, diet, sedentary lifestyles, excessive straining during bowel movements, and prolonged sitting. When the venous circulation and tissues in the anal area are weakened, it can lead to inflamed veins (piles) or small tears in the anus lining (fissures).
Dr. Tathed’s Homeopathic Treatment:
At our clinic, Dr. Tathed performs a thorough case-taking to understand each patient’s constitutional type, medical history, and unique symptom picture. He then prescribes a customized homeopathic remedy in a very diluted amount that matches the patient’s indicatory symptoms and stimulates their vital force to heal.
Over his many years of practice, Dr. Tathed has developed specialized experience in treating piles and fissures with homeopathy.
Common Homeopathic Remedies for Piles and Fissures:
Dr. Tathed has published research indicating there are many potential homeopathic medicines that can be used to treat piles and fissures. The specific remedy is chosen based on the person’s constitutional type and unique symptom picture. Some commonly indicated remedies he uses include:
- Aesculus hippocastanum: When piles are painful, purple, bleeding, and feel sore. May have aching lower back pain.
