The Western scientific perspective describes hemorrhoids or piles as varicosities of hemorrhoidal plexus veins complicated by inflammation, thrombosis and bleeding. Symptoms include bleeding following defecation, protrusion of the veins and pain. One can observe external hemorrhoids as purplish masses covered with skin that become more prominent when the patient strains during defecation. Internal hemorrhoids are multiple, soft, purple, irregularly shaped masses covered by a thin rectal mucous membrane which may be ulcerated and bleeding as the principal sign or symptom.
Traditional Chinese Medicine sees this dysfunction arising in part from weakness of Zang and Fu (viscera) and attack of Wind Damp. Febrile toxins dormant in the body cause downward Qi and Blood movement and then accumulation and stagnation of Qi and Blood in the anus. Then internal Dry Heat moves downward to the Large Intestine. This dysfunction also arises in part from an irregular diet made worse by fried, hot-spicy food, lack of fruits and vegetable to provide dietary fiber. Other causative factors include sitting too much, carrying too much weight, and walking for too long a distance all of which can lead to Qi and Blood stagnation in the anus.
