INTERNAL RECTAL PROBLEMS
Western Medicine believes that internal hemorrhoids are caused by straining at bowel movement, or from conditions such as cirrhosis, or during pregnancy and immediately after childbirth due to increased pressure in the veins of the intestine.
Diagnosis with Western Medicine requires a rectal examination. Treatments are aimed at easing the symptoms by using stool softeners, or suppositories with corticosteroids and anesthetics to reduce swelling and pain. One method of treatment includes grabbing the hemorrhoid with forceps, and constricting a rubber band around it to make the hemorrhoid wither and drop off. Another method that Western Medicine uses involves injecting a chemical into the hemorrhoid which causes fibrous tissue to grow to prevent blood flow. Complete removal of the hemorrhoid is another treatment option with conventional surgery, laser surgery, or cryosurgery (freezing the hemorrhoid off).
Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that sedentary people are susceptible to developing hemorrhoids. Exercise helps maintain proper spleen function, and the spleen is the organ which controls the body・s moisture and muscles. Exercising helps the body・s moisture circulate, and sedentary individuals allow moisture to deposit in the abdomen. Accumulated moisture with rotten foods produces heat in the small intestine which increases gravity・s pressure to the large intestine. The end result is an ．infection・ on the inside/outside of the colon.
Treatments with Traditional Chinese Medicine will eliminate the excess moisture in the small intestine. All natural herbs are used to eliminate rotten food deposits in the small intestine, eliminate ．infections・, heal any wounds, and decrease the size of the hemorrhoids.
