DISEASES / TREATMENTS
Constipation, lack of exercise, prolonged sitting and/or standing, and sedentary way of lifestyle are some primary conditional causes for piles. In piles (Internal Haemorrhoids) the main symptom is bleeding during the act of defecation. It is usually painless and occurs in the form of drops or sometimes as splash in the toilet pan and occurs in large amounts. When patient ignores the disease for a long time there occur protrusion of mass during defecation. Long standing piles can give rise to Anemia and consequent emaciation. The cure for piles is there in Ayurveda. There are effective bowel regulating, hemostatic and Anemia controlling/hematinic drugs in Ayurveda which can be used very effectively to control piles in early stages. But if the disease got chronic and prolapse become prominent, Kshara sutra therapy is advisable. It is a minor surgical procedure which is extremely effective in removing the pile masses without any bleeding or complication.
ANAL FISSURE OR FISSURE IN ANO:
This is a very common Ano rectal disease causing a lot of suffering and discomfort to the patient. There occurs a tear or a crack in the skin lined part of the anal canal. It is usually found in young and middle age people, in women usually during pregnancy but some times seen even in children. Though a small crack, the pain and suffering inflicted by it is of great magnitude. Beside, more often than note, it does not heal permanently and keeps on showing its effects continually or intermittently.
The causes of fissure are not very clear. Rarely fissure are caused due to some bigger underlying problem like Crohn's disease, Ulcerative colitis, Tuberculosis, Growths etc. The other main possible reason could be trauma to the area due to passage of unusually hard stool in a constipated patient. Patients often tend to take laxatives for getting soft watery stool, thinking that this will not cause them pain and will solve the problem. It is true that such patients will not face the problems (Pain, temporarily) avoiding the necessity to expand or stretch the anal canal / anal orifice, but ultimately this leads to more contractions of the canal. Hence, after some times, these patients face difficulty in passing even normally formed stool. Fissure can also be cured permanently by our Ayurvedic medicines and Kshar sutra therapy.
ANAL FISTULA OR FISTULA IN ANO:
In Fistula-in-ano/Anal fistula there is an abnormal small opening next to the anus from where mucopurulent discharge flows intermittently. This is due to a tunnel like tract between the anal canal and the skin. This condition always requires surgery for cure. But conventional surgery of Fistula-in-ano (Fistulotomy or fistulectomy) has high recurrence rates and thus not very much successful in treating this difficult disease. The Kshara-sutra treatment has been proved to be extremely effective in treating this disease with about 98% success rates without almost nil recurrence. It is well tested and well established by various researches and clinical trials carried out at BHU, Varanasi, PGI Chandigarh and ICMR, New Delhi. We at Shri Dhanwantari Clinic have a team of expert Ayurvedic Doctors in Kshara sutra therapy who have expertise in treating fistula. These doctors are well-versed with all the pros and cons of Kshara-sutra therapy in treating Fistula-in-ano along with other anorectal conditions like Piles, Anal fissures etc., thus offering the best treatment to our patients. Our doctors are backed by another team of medical support staff which comprises of well trained nurses and ward boys.

ABSCESS IN THE ANORECTAL REGION:
Drain abscess – Sushruta explains that the abscess with pus collection should be neatly drained first. This process is called as Vidravana / shastrabhedana. After draining, the affected area is to be washed with Panchamoola kashaya. Following that a paste (Poultice) made with licorice and other herbs such as Dashamoola (group of ten herbs), Bala (Sida cordifolia), turmeric, etc. is applied. Panchakarma therapy pridmoninantly Virechana therapy is administered. The poultice with various herbs is applied in the treatment, based on the pridominance of Doshas.
A pilonidal sinus (PNS) occurs in the cleavage between the buttocks (natal cleft) and can cause discomfort, embarrassment and absence from work for thousands of young people (mostly men) annually. It is a common problem in primary care due to recurrence following surgery and the need for frequent and time-consuming wound care. This disease can be managed effectively by Kshara sutra therapy.
ANAL CRYPTITIS AND PAPILITIS:
Cryptitis Cryptitis is a localized infection of one of the anal glands. This unusual condition is identified anoscopically as a pearl of pus beading up from the crypt at the level of the dentate line. Treatment is obliteration of the gland, which necessarily involves an internal sphincterotomy. Fistulae and abscesses can develop with untreated prolonged infection.
