Constipation
What is Constipation?
Constipation means hard stool, difficulty passing stools (straining), or a sense of incomplete emptying after a bowel movement. According to definition of medical science, constipation usually is defined as fewer than three bowel movements per week. Severe constipation is defined as less than one bowel movement per week.

The onset of constipation might be Acute or it can be Chronic. There is another condition where the patient is not able to pass even flatus. This condition is known as Obstinate Constipation.

What causes constipation? :-
Fundamentally, constipation is due to slow passage of digestive foods through any part of the intestine, but it mostly happens due to not passing of digestive contents in the colon.

Among the proximate causes, there are few conventional medications like, calcium-channel blocking drugs, iron supplements; narcotic pain medications might cause the constipation. Other than this few of the persons are having the habit of controlling the bowel motion, not taking the proper diet rich in fibers, taking too much of non-vegetarian foods, sedentary life-style and lack of exercise are the most important causes. Few persons are taking too much of un-necessary laxatives that is also another cause of constipation; in this case there is a situation happens which is known as colonic inertia where the nerves or muscles of the colon do not work normally.

Few pathological conditions, like hypo-thyroidism, diabetes mellitus, scleroderma, spinal cord disorder, multiple sclerosis, may also cause constipation.

What happens when un-treated or mal-treated :-
Constipation is most of the time a subjective phenomenon, its feelings depends from individual to individual. Some persons do not have any problem even that particular person does not defecate for 2-3 days or someone have irritation and anxious if he does not clear his bowels for 1 day only. Gradually this condition might turn up to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The patients have in-effectual urging for stool always, but does not have anything comes out. Chronic constipation or hard stool might lead to piles or fissure due to constant straining. But the problem related to the acute constipation always associated with some underlying factor that has to be ruled out as quickly as possible and to be promptly taken care of. Modern-day conventional treatment for chronic constipation is very much limited. Apart from different types of laxatives (lubricant laxatives, emollient laxatives, hyper-osmolar laxatives etc), they hardly have any sort of permanent solution for this problem. On the secondary effect of these laxatives, the condition becomes more complicated.

Management of Constipation in Homeopathy Health Centre :-
We at Homeopathy Health Centre treat the diseases in a rapid, gentle and permanent manner with the help of Homoeopathic medication, combining with dietary guideline and Yoga by Dr. Pancholi's Team of expert Homoeopathic Doctors.

Homoeopathy : In homoeopathy, we go to the root of the disease and understand the cause of the disease and the disease is treated accordingly. In Homeopathy Health Centre we have seen continuous and regular intake of Dr. Pancholi's Formulated Homoeopathic Medications can cure the acute and chronic constipation. Homoeopathic medications are helpful for improving the sensitivity of the nerve roots and muscular activity of the intestine thus the muscular inertia, which is the most important cause of chronic constipation, can be sorted out effectively.

Yoga : There are few specific Yoga guideline which would enhance the proper functioning of the pelvic floor muscles and effective peristaltic motion can be initiated by improving the nerve root sensitivity that can be guided effectively by Dr. Pancholi's Team of Expert Homoeopathic Doctors.

Present-day life has become very hectic and most of the persons are leading mostly a sedentary life-style .Because of lack of exercise, eating junk foods at indefinite hours, stress, smoking, consumption of excessive amount of alcohol, and voluntarily suppressing the urge for defecation for repeated times might turn up to inertial of the pelvic floor musculature and motility of the intestine. Thus Dr. Pancholi's Team of expert Homoeopathic Doctors can efficiently guide what should be the regular exercise and exercises which can improve effectivity of pelvic floor musculature and intestinal motility.

Diet : Proper dietary instructions are very much necessary for the patients who are suffering from chronic constipation. Increased fiber-rich diet is effective for the patients who are suffering from constipation. Dr. Pancholi's Team of expert Homoeopathic Doctors are efficient in advising the patients what should be the balanced fiber-rich diet that would provide the adequate amount of nutrition and improve the intestinal motility.
Hemorrhoids
What is Hemorrhoids?
Hemorrhoids (piles) are masses of tissues within the anal canal that contain blood vessels and the surrounding supporting tissue made up of muscle and elastic fibers. Basically the contents of the hemorrhoids (piles) are blood vessels most of them are branches of arteries, anal mucosa, and fibrous tissues. As the hemorrhoidal blood vessels are mostly supply of arteries, the hemorrhoidal bleeding can be severe.

There are 2 kinds of hemorrhoids (piles). One is internal and another is external. If the hemorrhoid originates at the top (rectal side) of the anal canal it is known as internal hemorrhoid and when it originates at the lower end of the anal canal near the anus, it is known as external hemorrhoid.

Causes of hemorrhoids (piles)?
  1. Including inadequate intake of fiber-rich diets.
  2. Sedentary life-style and lack of exercises.
  3. Prolonged sitting on the toilet.
  4. Chronic straining to have a bowel movement or constipation. In constipation, with the pulling force of stool, especially when the stool is hard, the hemorrhoidal cushions are being dragged downwards.
  5. Old age is another cause where the tonicity of the anal sphincter becomes weak causing this kind of dysfunction very easily.

Symptoms of hemorrhoids (piles):-
  1. Mostly the internal hemorrhoids are painless and bleeding and external hemorrhoids are painful and non-bleeding. In case of internal hemorrhoids, mostly feeling of fullness will come. Bleeding in internal hemorrhoids may be very severe, as mostly it is an arterial bleeding. In external hemorrhoids sharp shooting pain might arise, which disturbs the person in sitting or walking etc.
  2. When the internal hemorrhoids come out from the anal orifices, it is known as prolapsing internal hemorrhoids. 1st degree- Hemorrhoids that bleed but do not prolapse. 2nd degree- Hemorrhoids that prolapse and retract on their own. 3rd degree- Hemorrhoids that prolapse but must be pushed back in by a finger. 4th degree- Hemorrhoids that prolapse and cannot be pushed back in.
  3. Pruritus ani- Due to the presence of stool or constant moisture, anal orifices itches, which is known as Pruritus ani.

Complications if un-treated or mal-treated :-
The internal hemorrhoids if kept untreated for long periods of time, it might lead to a prolapsing condition where in 4th stage the hemorrhoids can protrude outside of the anal orifice and it get infected or thromosed. This condition requires a prompt surgical intervention. Profuse bleeding may lead to severe anemia. External hemorrhoids may be sometimes strangulated and super-infected with bacteria. The patients may be having the excruciating pain after defecation, pruritus ani (itching at anal canal). The external hemorrhoids can also be associated with anal fissure.

Conventional medicinal treatment is very much limited for hemorrhoids. The treatment options are mostly surgical than medicinal in conventional medicine. However, there are some of the pain-killer medications, or anti-biotic medication which all has only temporary effects and these medicines also have potent side-effects in case taken for long periods of time. There are some non-operative procedures like sclerotherapy, rubber band ligation, heat coagulation, or cryotherapy, which have potent risk factors of super-infection of the lesions.

In Homeopathy Health Centre we have seen continuous and regular intake of Dr. Pancholi's Formulated Homoeopathic Medications can cure different types of hemorrhoids or piles. With the help of homoeopathic medications, we can control the constipation or hard stool so that straining during defecation can be avoided. The blood supply at the ano-rectal region is engorged due to constant straining during defecation. This is the fundamental reason of developing hemorrhoids or piles. With the help of Dr. Pancholi's Formulated Homoeopathic Medications we can improve the proper vascular supply at the ano-rectal region, which lead to the recovery from hemorrhoids or piles.

Yoga : There are few specific Yoga guidelines which would enhance the proper functioning of the pelvic floor muscles and effective peristaltic motion can be initiated by improving the nerve root sensitivity that can be guided effectively by Dr. Pancholi's Team of Expert Homoeopathic Doctors. Not only this proper yoga would also helpful for improving the blood circulations around the anus and rectal region which improves the vascular engorgement which is the main cause of hemorrhoidal formation.

So if the constipation is prevented then naturally the chance of hemorrhoid formation would be less.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome ?
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional bowel disorder characterized by chronic abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, and alteration of bowel habits, whereas there is no detectable organic cause.
There are few disease conditions, like celiac disease, fructose mal-absorption, mild infections of the gut, several parasitic infections like giardiasis, several inflammatory bowel diseases (like Crohn's disease or Ulcerative colitis), chronic constipation, and chronic functional abdominal pain might present as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

What are the basic fundamentals of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) :-
The exact cause of IBS is unknown. The most common theory is that IBS is a disorder of the interaction between the brain and the gastrointestinal tract.

The nervous system that controls the gastrointestinal organs, as with most other organs, contains both sensory and motor nerves. The sensory nerves continuously sense what is happening within the organ and relay this information to nerves in the organ's wall. From there, information can be relayed to the spinal cord and brain. The information is received and processed in the organ's wall, the spinal cord, or the brain. Then, based on this sensory input and the way the input is processed, commands (responses) are sent to the organ over the motor nerves. Two of the most common motor responses in the intestine are contraction or relaxation of the muscle of the organ and secretion of fluid and/or mucus into the organ.

Thus the abnormalities might occur at any point of the total systems such as mild stretching of the small intestine by food may give rise to abnormal sensory signals through spinal cord up to brain where they can perceive it as pain.

What are the symptoms of IBS?
  1. Abdominal pain, bloating, and discomfort are the main symptoms of IBS.
  2. Often these people report straining and cramping when trying to have a bowel movement but cannot eliminate any stool, or they are able to eliminate only a small amount.
  3. If they are able to have a bowel movement, there may be mucus in it, which is a fluid that moistens and protect passages in the digestive system.
  4. Some people with IBS experience diarrhoea, which is a frequent, loose, watery, stool.
  5. Other people with IBS alternate between constipation and diarrhoea.
  6. Sometimes people find that their symptoms subside for a few months and then return, while others report a constant worsening of symptoms over time.

Complications if Un-treated or Mal-treated :-
The complications of functional diseases of the gastrointestinal tract are relatively limited. But as the name suggests "irritable", the patients who are having this kind of problem become very irritable psychologically. They become very anxious about the problem that they are suffering from. Before going to anywhere or to any of the new place, they become much tensed. So this problem might complicate their personal and professional lives. Sometimes the patients who suffer from this kind of problem might reduce their intake of foods and they most of the time go without meals so that they have less bouts of defecation, but this might create mal-nutrition and patients most of the time develop calcium or iron deficiency syndrome. When the condition takes the shape of more critical, then the patient might not get their regular sleeps even.

Irritable bowel syndrome is non-treatable according to the conventional treatment as there is no perceptible pathology found.

Homoeopathy : In homoeopathy, we go to the root of the disease and understand the cause of the disease and the disease is treated accordingly. In Homeopathy Health Centre we have seen continuous and regular intake of Dr. Pancholi's Formulated Homoeopathic Medications can permanently cure IBS. Even in the latest development of the medical science it has been seen that IBS most of the time psychogenic or neurogenic in origin where there is no perceptible organic cause is found in the Gastro-intestinal tract. With the help of Dr. Pancholi's Formulated Homoeopathic Medications we can go the root cause of development of this kind of problem and cure it accordingly. Not only will this continuous taking of homoeopathic medication not cause any addiction to that particular medication or any long or short-time complications.

Yoga : There are few specific Yoga guidelines which would enhance the proper functioning of the pelvic floor muscles and effective peristaltic motion can be initiated by improving the nerve root sensitivity that can be guided effectively by Dr. Pancholi's Team of Expert Homoeopathic Doctors.

Dr. Pancholi's Team of expert Homoeopathic Doctors are efficient in advising the patients what should be the balanced fiber-rich diet that would provide the adequate amount of nutrition and improve the intestinal motility. Most of the time the sufferers of IBS refrain from taking regular diets for the fear that they will get a urge so most of the time chronic sufferers would develop a mal-nutrition syndrome; so they require a proper diet chart consisting of proper necessary nutrients.
