Haemorrhoids No More™ PDF

Find out how to get rid of hemorrhoids once and for all in a completely natural way


Haemorrhoids No More™ is the digital eBook that contains the famous program designed by Jessica Wright to defeat in a short time and in a completely natural way the embarrassing, annoying and potentially serious problem of haemorrhoids.

Haemorrhoids No More™ was developed by Jessica Wright and her collaborators in the course of 12 years of research in the field of holistic medicine and has already been successfully used by approximately 147,000 people in 131 countries around the world.

The book contains a clinically tested method whose effectiveness has been statistically demonstrated and recognized by countless reviews published in specialized forums on the subject.


The role of holistic medicine (including disciplines such as homeopathy, naturopathy, osteopathy, etc.) should be to fill any gaps left by traditional medicine. However, as most people find, a collaboration of this kind is not possible because it clashes with the economic interests of the pharmaceutical industry.

As an example: back pain.

Are you suffering from back pain? All of us know that this problem can be solved by exercises designed and targeted at the abdominal muscles in order to prevent too much weight on the lumbar muscles. A steady regimen of stretching exercises eliminates the tensions accumulated over the years after a few weeks. It may also be necessary to lose a few pounds in order to eliminate the back pain.

The fact that we get fit and healthy after this exercises repays self-discipline required to carry out this natural path of self-healing.

But all of this is beyond the scope of the pharmaceutical industry. They do not want us to follow such a natural self-healing regimen.

Basically, they want three things:

  1. People to buy their painkillers
  2. The pain to go away once you take their pain killers
  3. For you to come back for more when the pain killers start to wear off

Another is headaches

Headaches (such as common migraines) are caused by stress and the consumption of particular foods. In other words, it is a sign that there is something in your lifestyle that should change.

But the pharmaceutical industry does not want you to change your lifestyle. Again, they want three things to happen:

  1. People to buy their painkillers
  2. The pain to go away once you take their pain killers
  3. For you to come back for more when the pain killers start to wear off

Of course all this is also true for haemorrhoids. The goal of the pharmaceutical industry is not to completely cure your haemorrhoids. Their goal is to offer products that can soothe the symptoms, hoping that you will need to come back and buy the same products in the future.

It should be emphasized that the largest and the most important source of income for the pharmaceutical industry is not the cure of diseases. It is those diseases that are chronic and do not get healed.

And this is the main reason why they tend to focus on many chronic diseases that could be healed in a natural way by applying specific changes to your lifestyle.

Unlike conventional treatments based on creams, gels and drugs that only act on the symptoms and affects only the local level, the eBook (PDF) by Jessica Wright contains a program designed to eliminate the real causes of haemorrhoids.

We don’t want to be misunderstood. The preceding paragraphs are not aimed at demonizing drugs. As such, please do not suspend the use of a drug without first consulting your doctor and possibly a specialist.

What we want to emphasize is that you cannot get to permanently cure haemorrhoids by only acting on the symptoms without eliminating the causes.

Before undergoing surgery as a last resort in treating your haemorrhoids, it would be good to identify the factors that have caused the onset of your haemorrhoids.

Get bandaged: There is a surgical procedure known as hemorrhoids banding, which is an outpatient procedure and does not require sutures. The hemorrhoid is tied off at the base interrupting the flow of blood that causes the vein to bulge and rupture. The lack of blood supply eventually causes the hemorrhoid to fall.

Get a laser treatment: Laser treatment is an effective method of surgical removal of hemorrhoids. It is less invasive and does not require stitches. The doctor uses a laser beam to reduce the hemorrhoids isolating the nerves and blood vessels. Depending on the severity of the hemorrhoids, this treatment may be necessary to repeat more than once.

Get a hemorrhoidectomy: This surgical procedure is the most invasive and painful, usually requires a hospital stay of about four days, and has the highest risk of infection. During this procedure, the doctor will remove the hemorrhoid and its tissues. The surrounding tissues are then stitched. There is a good chance that these tissues will fall during a bowel movement followed by the risk of infection.

In common parlance, the term haemorrhoids defines an inflammatory process of the haemorrhoidal plexus surrounding the anal orifice. In other words, this is when the haemorrhoid pads which are usually are soft and richly vascularized become inflamed, leaning outward, causing discomfort, pain and bleeding.

Although haemorrhoids can occur in both sexes, pregnant women are by far the largest category of people at risk.

Home Remedies For Hemorrhoids
Home Remedies For Hemorrhoids

Haemorrhoids are caused by several factors: unhealthy diet, alcoholism, impaired hormonal, diarrhoea or chronic constipation, family history, physical inactivity, excessive intake of laxatives and smoking.

What to Do

  • Adopt the haemorrhoid diet: a diet characterized by excessive or frequent consumption of “junk” foods may increase the incidence of haemorrhoids.
  • Always thoroughly dry the genital and anal area with a hair dryer or with a soft cotton cloth.
  • Wear cotton underwear; prefer ones with no seams and those that are soft and elastic so as not to irritate the genital and anal area
  • Wash the anal area with water cool (not cold): the cold water exerts a mild analgesic (cryotherapy) on the affected area.(1)
  • Immediately notify your doctor in case of blood in your stool: despite not uncommon to see the blood in the stool when one has haemorrhoids, it is recommended for one to always consult a physician, since this symptom may be a precursor of more serious disorders (e.g. cancer of the colon or rectum)
  • Choose a soft toilet paper
  • Use uncoloured and unscented toilet paper: colouring agents and perfumes can aggravate anal itching that characterizes haemorrhoids
  • Cleanse with extreme care the anal region particularly after defecation.
  • Gently restore external haemorrhoids into the anal canal with a finger in order to expedite the healing process.
  • A good remedy to alleviate the discomfort of haemorrhoids is to sit on a donut cushion (available in pharmacies or in orthopaedics): which is particularly useful for those who, for business reasons, are forced to sitting for many hours

Don’ts when one has haemorrhoids

  • Take alcohol: alcoholism increases the risk of haemorrhoids, so you should avoid their consumption
  • Sedentary lifestyle: a sedentary lifestyle predisposes a person to the risk of haemorrhoids
  • Excessive use of laxatives: these substances, facilitate peristalsis and can inflame the haemorrhoidal plexus anal orifice, encouraging the development (or worsening) of haemorrhoids
  • Anal intercourse: in case of haemorrhoids, it is recommended to refrain from anal sex to avoid aggravating the disorder
  • Apply steroids or other pharmaceutical formulations without consulting your doctor
  • Cleanse the genital and anal area with aggressive or perfumed cleansers
  • Scratching the anal area: haemorrhoids often cause anal itching, so the patient tends to scratch the area. This behaviour albeit temporarily comforting, can aggravate the clinical condition by favouring bleeding and infection
  • Lift heavy loads: undue stress may exacerbate the haemorrhoids problem
  • Use cold water for personal hygiene: the resulting spasm of the muscles may cause anal throttling of the haemorrhoidal nodules.
  • Sports such as cycling and horse riding: these sport practices should be temporarily suspended, as they can accentuate the anal pain in the context of haemorrhoidal disease and aggravate the inflammation.

What to Eat

  • Follow a healthy and balanced diet, ensuring an adequate intake of fibre, whole foods and vegetables
  • Drink lots of water to soften the intestinal contents, favouring easy evacuation: one trick that is especially useful in case of the tendency to be constipated in the context of haemorrhoids
  • Take yogurt with lactic acid bacteria or a live probiotic (to strengthen the immune system)
  • Take as much fruits and vegetables, as they are rich in antioxidants (vitamin C and E)

What Not to Eat

  • Spicy foods (e.g. red pepper, spicy salami etc.)
  • Coffee and drinks with caffeine (based drinks, cola, Guarana etc.)
  • Foods high in salt (e.g. sausages): excess salt retains fluids from the circulatory system, promoting the inflammation of veins haemorrhoidal
  • Alcohol and beer
  • Foods difficult to digest such as gravies, fried foods and foods high in fat

Haemorrhoid Cures and Natural Remedies

To speed healing, it is recommended to locally apply creams or ointments formulated with active ingredients such as:

  • Helichrysum (Helichrysum angustifolium) → edema, decongestant, analgesic properties (2)
  • Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) → capillarotrope and vasoconstrictor properties (3)
  • Butcher’s Broom (Ruscus aculeatus) → capillarotrope and vasoconstrictor properties (4)
  • Witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) → anti-inflammatory , astringent and healing properties (5)
  • Jojoba oil (Simmondsia chinensis) → significant antioxidant capacity (exerted by vitamin E ) and emollients. As an alternative to jojoba oil, the Shea butter exerts the same functions (6)
  • John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) → healing, disinfectant and astringent (natural remedy indicated for bleeding haemorrhoids) (7)
  • Aloe (Aloe vera gel) → properties inflammatory, soothing, restorative and astringent properties

Collinsonia Canadensis is a natural alternative remedy, especially useful in case of painful haemorrhoids and bleeding during pregnancy

The herbal products for the treatment of haemorrhoids can be enriched with some essential balsamic oils. For this purpose they are particularly indicated for the essential oil of Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) and eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus Labill), able to confer to the product freshness, exerting a mild anaesthetic effect (albeit temporary)

Pharmacological treatments

The following are corticosteroid drugs for topical application: they exert a powerful anti-inflammatory effect:

  • Hydrocortisone (e.g. Proctosedyl)
  • Fluocinolone (e.g. Proctolyn®)
  • Fluocortolone (e.g. Ultraproct)

Local anaesthetics (topical application): act solely on the symptom, but not interact with the cause of origin:

  • Benzocaine (e.g. Foille)
  • Lidocaine (e.g. xylocaine, Lidofast)
  • Dibucaine (e.g. Nupercainal)
  • Pramoxina hydrochloride (e.g. Tronotene)

Prevention of haemorrhoids

  • Always wash your hands thoroughly before touching the genital and anal area to reduce the risk of infection
  • Carry intimate disinfectant wipes or specific liquid formulations
  • Regularly do Kegel exercises especially when pregnant. Pregnant women are more prone to haemorrhoids: it seems that Kegel exercises somehow prevent this unpleasant disorder while also facilitating delivery
  • Regularize the frequency of bowel movements: people prone to haemorrhoids should go to the toilet only when necessary. Excessive “pushing” may facilitate the prolapse of haemorrhoids or if already present, accentuate the pain
  • Follow a healthy, balanced diet associated with regular exercises to help prevent haemorrhoids

Medical treatments for Haemorrhoids

Surgery is considered as the only effective alternative when the natural remedies or pharmacological drugs have not given positive results in the treatment of haemorrhoids.

Among the most appropriate surgical procedures include:

  • Haemorrhoidectomy is necessary for severe haemorrhoids associated with heavy bleeding, a frequent thrombus or a complete prolapse. The technique consists the surgical removal of haemorrhoids by excess tissue, responsible for bleeding and prolapse
  • THD method: is the suture of the terminal branches of superior rectal artery (which carries blood to the haemorrhoids). The aforementioned surgical remedy is indicated for the treatment of prolapsed haemorrhoidal of the second degree associated with bleeding.
  • Longo Method (prostatectomia + hemorrhoidopexy): involves repositioning of the prolapsed haemorrhoids


Green tea for treating hemorrhoids

Best herbal teas for haemorrhoids

The teas against haemorrhoids mainly exploit their healing properties:

  • Soothing, gelling agents and emollients of drugs rich in soluble fibre and mucilage (psyllium seed, marshmallow root, guar gum, mauve and flaxseed). If taken with a generous amount of water, for example in the form of herbal tea mucilaginous solves constipation and reduces defecation efforts (haemorrhoids aggravating factor).
  • Drugs that improve venous tone and reduce capillary fragility such as horse chestnut (seeds), Gotu Kola tea (aerial parts), ginkgo biloba (leaves), witch hazel (leaves), black currant (fruit), butcher’s broom (root), bilberry (fruit) and red vine (leaves).

Useful against haemorrhoids are also those drugs with anti-inflammatory, anaesthetic and haemostatic (ability to stop the bleeding). Haemorrhoids herbal tea from witch hazel (leaves and bark) has all these features and as such is widely used in the preparation of creams and anti-haemorrhoid herbal teas.

Natural Home Remedies for Hemorrhoids

Concern, pain, embarrassment, itching and bleeding are just some of the psychological and physical effects, which accompany the “appearance” of haemorrhoids or, rather, the inflammation of the haemorrhoidal plexus surrounding the anal orifice. As has often been analysed in the various articles dealing with haemorrhoids, the search for their causes is very intricate, whereas it is almost impossible to find a unique triggering factor: Haemorrhoids are linked to liver disorders, constipation, cancer, physical inactivity, alcohol abuse, stress, pregnancy and the abuse of laxatives.

Natural Remedies for haemorrhoids

With a prescription form an attending physician, herbal medicines offer excellent natural remedies against haemorrhoids. Generally, it is recommended that a combined product: one for internal use (capsules or tablets), which exerts its action in a systemic way,  and topical ointments (ointment, cream or gel), be applied locally to get instant relief.

Natural capsules

These are herbal product for internal use (gel caps, for example) could be constituted by drugs such as helichrysum, centella and ruscus:

  • Helichrysum (Helichrysum angustifolium) is an essential oil is mainly made ​​from Neryl acetate, in which a product effective against haemorrhoids which confers its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. The helichrysum is also known for their antiedemigena properties (indicated for the haemorrhoidal syndrome): acts as a decongestant and pain eliminators. This action could be enhanced by other plants such as cypress, ruscus and centella (vasoactive drugs), or aloe (anti-inflammatory).
  • In this case the helichrysum is added to a formulation for internal use, but may also be present in a cream or a topical ointment.
  • Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) and butcher’s broom (Ruscus aculeatus) are the basis of saponins drugs used in the treatment of venous disorders such as haemorrhoids. These are two plants with strong capillarotrope and vasoconstrictor properties: act on the arteries with vasoprotective and anti-inflammatory actions. The asiaticoside of Centella and ruscogenin of rusco act synergistically increasing the capillary resistance and decreasing the capillary and extravasation of blood.

Despite the limited number of such plants, as in this case, the action expressed by the same is very effective, since the active ingredients do not involve intestinal toxicity and do not cause irritation, only in non-susceptible individuals. A product for internal use acts directly on the causes that trigger the disorder, increasing the resistance of the venous walls, decreasing the permeability of the haemorrhoidal plexus, combating pain and inflammation, and reducing the dilation of the veins.

Ointment against haemorrhoids

Along with the capsules, we recommend an oleaginous ointment to be applied locally with aloe Vera, St. John’s Wort, jojoba oil (or Shea butter ), cypress essential oil and mint and witch hazel.

  1. Aloe (Aloe Vera gel): aloe is a good help in an ointment against haemorrhoids, as it exerts an anti-inflammatory, soothing, restorative and astringent; accordingly is useful in the Treatments of open wounds.
  2. St. John’s wort (oily extract of Hypericum perforatum): the plant complex is rich in anthraquinones and tannins, which exhibit interesting healing properties as a disinfectant and astringent.
  3. Jojoba oil (Simmondsia chinensis): it is actually a wax obtained from the seeds of the jojoba, which comes in liquid form (hence the nickname “oil”). It is added to products for haemorrhoids for their remarkable antioxidants abilities and emollients. Alternatively, jojoba oil, Shea butter expresses the same properties.
  4. Essential oil of cypress (Cupressus sempervirens) and peppermint: these essential oils give freshness to the product, promote pseudo aesthetic action because they decrease the hassle. For this reason, the topical application of this cream gives immediate relief.
  5. Witch hazel (Hamamelis Virgil): finds application in natural products against haemorrhoids because of its remarkable antiphlogistic properties (decrease inflammation), astringent (helps vasoconstriction) and healing.

Lifestyle and haemorrhoids

The combined use of these herbal products is not enough: in addition to natural remedies, it would be appropriate to optimize their power through the intake of light food, not spicy that could enhance the problem of “haemorrhoids” – and adopt a healthy style life and then, if necessary, consult an expert if the discomfort persists.

The best Diet and Nutrition to Cure Haemorrhoids

Foods That Help Heal Hemorrhoids

Haemorrhoids are varicose dilatatios of the veins in the anus and rectum. Depending on whether the haemorrhoidal veins are in the upper and middle plexus or the bottom of the haemorrhoidal plexus, they are distinguished as internal haemorrhoids or external haemorrhoids.

Congestion of the veins surrounding the rectum and anus is a fairly common disorder that affects mostly men in their mature ages. Haemorrhoids are caused by factors of a constitutional nature (weakness and reduced elasticity of the venous walls, circulatory problems) and environmental factors (diet low in fibre, constipation, pregnancy and particularly heavy work or sports).

Haemorrhoids are generally accompanied by symptoms such as itching, eczema, proctitis, fissures, bleeding and pain during bowel movements. For this reason it is necessary to try to contain them with the same care with which we fight constipation: with a healthy diet and exercises.

Dieting for Haemorrhoids

Efforts to eliminate hard, dry and moderately sized stool which greatly increases intra-abdominal pressure and blood flow in the anal vessels encouraging the break in piles. it has also been hypothesised that the external anal sphincter when not routinely dilated by bulky stools progressively undergoes a narrowing that prevents proper blood circulation in the area.

The best Diet and Nutrition to Cure Haemorrhoids
The best Diet and Nutrition to Cure Haemorrhoids

The treatment of haemorrhoids will have to rely, in the first place, the hygienic-dietary measures aimed at regularizing the stool. For this purpose it is recommended you tale a diet free of irritating foods and alcoholic beverages, as well as plenty of fluids and plant fibres.

The residual non-digestible foods tend to absorb water stretching the walls of the colon and preventing their nervous contraction. Precisely for their ability to bind water, vegetable foods must be associated with a full liquid diet (at least a couple of litres of water every day) that softens the faecal content by facilitating the evacuation and the reduction of pain and gas.

You have to consider that a diet that is too rich in vegetable fibres can in some subjects cause a worsening of constipation, while in others it might cause bouts of diarrhoea. In addition to constipation repeated episodes of diarrhoea will tend to worsen haemorrhoids, chemically irritating the anus and causing inflammation.

The influence of special foods such as alcohol and spices (pepper, paprika) varies from person to person. These foods may still favour the exacerbation of the symptoms.

In mild forms numerous herbal remedies are useful in the treatment of haemorrhoids. These include extracts or decoctions made from yarrow, pineapple, cypress, horse chestnut, mallow, mullein and tormentilla. To stimulate the natural evacuation of faeces it can be useful to take two glasses of warm water after meals. The constipation may significantly improve if a regular diet is flanked by supplements of glucomannan.

It is also useful to put ointments based on Scrophularia, nightshade, linaria and linalool. The ointment consists of oil-based dyeing cypress, barberry and horse chestnut which are indicated for their analgesic properties. Various ointments made from shark liver oil, yeast, horse chestnut and witch hazel can also be used in the treatment of haemorrhoids.

We must not forget, however, that haemorrhoids may heal spontaneously and that in many cases the link between healing and food, diet and medication, is purely coincidental.

Food haemorrhoid sufferers are advised against

Alcohol and spirits, coffee and tea, cocoa and chocolate, soft drinks, carbonated, too salty foods (meats, cheeses , canned goods …), vinegar and lemon, spices, spicy foods, fatty foods and animal fats. Others are fries and sauces, seafood and shellfish, garlic and onion, eggplant , radishes and truffles.

Foods recommended for use in case of haemorrhoids

Foods rich in fibre, Oats, beef broth, beetroot, chestnut, cabbage, safflower, bran, onion, yeast, lemon (for diarrhoea) melon, blueberry, potato, pollen, leeks, sage, dandelion, yogurt.

A sedentary lifestyle is often one of the contributory causes of constipation and haemorrhoids. Therefore it is essential to associate your life with an adequate supply of exercises. A simple walk, without any side effects for most people, represents an effective natural cure, to be taken daily.

Finally proper local hygiene in the morning and evening or after each evacuation is indispensable to the treatment of haemorrhoids.


What are the best haemorrhoid drugs?

The choice of a treatment varies depending on the severity of the haemorrhoids; just to give you an example, in the case of a serious case of haemorrhoids the only conceivable therapeutic option is surgery while in other cases it is sufficient to treat them by changing your eating habits.

Over the Counter Hemorrhoid Medicine

  • Local administration of drugs such as ointments and suppositories
  • Oral medications
  • Outpatient treatment options (band ligation, photocoagulation etc.)

In the case of medications, it is recommended to avoid spicy foods, spicy, alcohol, and follow the general rules of personal hygiene (clean the area affected by haemorrhoids with warm water and soap) to ensure that the pathological condition regress at a faster rate.

What are the best medicines for haemorrhoids?

The following are the classes of drugs most used in therapy against haemorrhoids, and some examples of specialty drugs; a medical doctor will choose the active ingredients and the dosage most suitable for the patient, based on the severity of the disease, the health status of the patient and his response to treatments:

Haemorrhoids: what are the causes and risk factors?

Haemorrhoids are a very common disease that is estimated to affect people at least once in their lives. According to other sources, more than 3 million adults in each country (40% of the adult population) suffer from haemorrhoids.

The problem occurs with equal frequency in both sexes although it is a little bit higher in women because of the possible risks associated with pregnancy. During this period there are several factors that can affect the appearance or on the worsening of haemorrhoids. Among the main one are:

  • Hormonal changes that directly affect the vascular tissue
  • Mechanical and physical effect due to the presence of the foetus
  • Drastic increase in intra-abdominal pressure during childbirth

Haemorrhoids occur to people mainly between the ages of 45 and 65 years old and tend to worsen with the passage of time. At the origin of the disease are some predisposing factors such as family history, lifestyle and eating habits.

Among the main risk factors for haemorrhoids, the most influential is linked to the presence of intestinal dysfunction, such as constipation or chronic diarrhoea.

A sedentary lifestyle, overexertion, laxative abuse, prolonged standing, alcohol abuse and/or nicotine are other factors that can trigger or exacerbate haemorrhoidal disorders.

It is important to emphasize that a healthy body is perfectly capable of handling any food, including those considered risk contributors to haemorrhoids. Obviously a massive and prolonged use of these particular foods may in the long run determine the occurrence of the disease or other proctologic conditions. If the person already suffering from haemorrhoids abolishes or at least limits all such foods that can irritate the anal mucosa such as chili, sausages, alcohol, chocolate and spices spicy then there is hope for them.

How to prevent haemorrhoids

Whereas it is impossible to determine with certainty a cure for haemorrhoids it is also not possible to speak of a proven way of prevention. One way to drive away the onset of haemorrhoids is to simply follow some general advice, useful in improving the functionality of the whole body and protect it at the same time from many other diseases.

To prevent haemorrhoids is therefore very important to lead an active life, doing exercise regularly and avoiding smoking and alcohol. Sports such as jogging, dancing, running or gymnastics for the elderly improve bodily functions at the same time strengthening the pelvic region.

Nutrition plays a rather important role in both the primary prevention and in the secondary prevention (after the appearance of haemorrhoids). A balanced diet, rich in water and fibre helps to regulate bowel functions, removing one of the major risk factors.

Good personal hygiene, not only prevents haemorrhoids but also other very annoying diseases such as the fissures or anal fistulas. Also the choice of underwear is very important since permeable fabric such as cotton “leaves the skin to breathe” avoiding the accumulation of heat and moisture.

Curing haemorrhoids

The treatment of haemorrhoids varies depending on the severity of the disease. If is a milder case just a bit of motion and proper dietary habits promote healing, while in particularly serious ones the only effective solution is surgery. Between these two extremes are a whole series of interventions that are carried out under local anaesthesia with an outpatient photocoagulation and rubber band ligation. The result of these treatments cures the majority of cases at the first attempt (about 60%), while in the more unfortunate it is necessary to repeat the treatment.

In the initial stage the treatment of haemorrhoids is done through a series of measures to reduce the inflammation and restore elasticity to the wall veins. The energy supply must be in this regard rich in water and fibre so as to facilitate the evacuation of the bowels; at the same time avoid all situations that cause increased pressure on the haemorrhoids, such as heavy lifting, or overexertion during defecation. Even anal hygiene must be considered by washing the area with warm water and soap to accelerate healing and avoid the risk of infection. Avoid washing the area with cold water because the resulting anal muscle spasms may cause throttling of haemorrhoidal nodules.

Ointments and suppositories to decongestant, aesthetic and/or disinfectant, are other “conservative” remedies useful in treating haemorrhoids at the initial stages and alleviate the symptoms. The main substances used for this purpose are the corticosteroids and local anaesthetics. Also in this case, as is the case with many other pathologies, are drugs that alleviate the symptoms but do not act on the causes that gave rise to the haemorrhoids. For this reason, and because of the other effects arising from their use, the drugs should not be taken indiscriminately but under exclusive medical supervision.

If these treatments do not have the desired effect and there is a worsening of symptoms, not solvable by technical outpatient, surgery should be considered as the only effective alternative.

The operation of surgical excision necessary for high grade haemorrhoids associated with heavy bleeding, a thrombus or complete prolapse (grade IV), has undergone many changes over the years.

Today, there are three main types of surgeries, the classical (traditional haemorrhoidectomy, open Milligan and Morgan) and the two most innovative surgeries: the method based on the technique developed by Dr. Longo and the THD method.

The first technique is certainly not free from side effects and is based on the removal of haemorrhoids with the surgical removal of excess tissue responsible for bleeding and prolapse.

The Longo method instead relies on the repositioning of the prolapsed haemorrhoids. This operation gives the patient a faster recovery (usually within 10-15 days, compared to the 4-6 weeks required with traditional surgery), relieves pain and has comparable efficacy to the traditional method.

The THD method is done through the suture of the terminal branches of the superior rectal artery that carries blood to the haemorrhoids. In the case of a prolapse, the suture is associated with the repositioning of the mucosa in its natural environment. Even this type of intervention has quicker recovery times faster than the traditional method (7-10 days) because it does not require the removal of tissues relieves pain and has a low recurrence rate.

The most suitable choice of intervention is recommended by the haemorrhoid specialist based on the results of the specialist proctologic.

If the diagnosis is correct about 96% of patients can permanently solve the annoying problem of haemorrhoids.


What are haemorrhoids?

Haemorrhoids are highly vascular soft pads located in the terminal part of the rectum. Their presence contributes to the maintenance of faecal continence by inflating and deflating depending on the situation.

Haemorrhoids are usually not felt by the subject, but under certain conditions they may swell giving rise to the classic symptoms of the haemorrhoidal disease.

The term haemorrhoid is then used loosely to describe the condition in which the veins excessively dilate forming haemorrhoidal avarices.

Today, in light of modern theories, we prefer to talk of haemorrhoids as a pathology that affects the support structures of the rectal canal causing the downward slipping of these tissues. The failure of the rectal mucosal pushes internal haemorrhoids outwards which in turn drags along the external ones (prolapse) causing the typical symptoms of the pathology.

Underlying these changes are genetic predispositions influenced by lifestyle and other contributing factors such as pregnancy, constipation or chronic diarrhoea.

Haemorrhoids are the most frequent anal pathology, so much that it is estimated affects at least each person once in their life and about 90% of the population. In fact the characteristic symptoms of this disease are common to several other Proctological disorders, often incorrectly labelled as haemorrhoidal.

For this reason the diagnosis of haemorrhoids is solely done by a doctor, who should be contacted in advance to ensure that seemingly trivial symptoms do not obscure more important diseases.

Classification and types of haemorrhoids

Haemorrhoids: Depending on their location haemorrhoids are divided into internal haemorrhoids and external haemorrhoids.

In the first case they remain localized inside the anal canal, are not visible to the naked eye and are usually painless. During defecation they can go outside (prolapse) and then return spontaneously. Only when the prolapse is complete or is associated with fissures do internal haemorrhoids cause pain

External haemorrhoids are visible to the naked eye, they develop near the anus, come out easily and appear as bumps that are hard and painful.

In relation to the extent of the disease, haemorrhoids are classified into four grades of severity:

  • Haemorrhoids grade I: they remain inside the anus and ate therefore only visible through an anoscopic examination. The patient becomes aware of their presence due to bleeding while the pain is often absent
  • Haemorrhoids Grade II: normally remain inside and come out only when defecating; fall spontaneously, causing bleeding and discomfort
  • Grade III haemorrhoids: protrude outside in a definitive manner, they require manual intervention to reposition within the anal canal and are generally painful
  • Grade IV haemorrhoids: they are prolapsed and are perpetually on the outside; it is not possible to bring them back inside with a simple manual operation.

The pain may still appear at any stage of the haemorrhoid disease. Thrombosis for example is one of the most frequent acute complications that can affect both the external haemorrhoids, or, more rarely, the internal ones. In this situation we are witnessing the formation of a thrombus (clot blood) within the inflamed varicose vein, which is associated with swelling, itching and intense pain. The repetition of these episodes makes it necessary for surgical removal of haemorrhoids (haemorrhoidectomy) that is also used to solve the most serious cases (grade IV haemorrhoids, with persistent excessive bleeding).

Haemorrhoids: the correct relationship with a doctor

The characteristic symptoms of haemorrhoids are of grave concern and embarrassment for most patients. Often, the problems are close to the intimate sphere of the subject causing difficulty in exposing the symptoms to their doctor.

For this reason there is a general tendency to consult a specialist only in later stages of the disease when the symptoms being experienced are especially important. This is obviously the wrong behaviour which can only worsen the situation. Many of the characteristic symptoms of the haemorrhoidal disease are for example common to different diseases, some of which are very serious, and for this, diagnosable only through specialized tests.

For all these reasons, when the typical symptoms of haemorrhoids appear, you must overcome the reluctance and taboo by contacting your doctor. Early intervention will help in a quick recovery from this illness.
