Anorectal Disease in Ayurveda
Anorectal Disease – Piles, fissure, fistula are very troublesome diseases and recurrence after surgery is quite common. According to Ayurveda neglect of proper diet and lifestyle habits ends in reducing digestive fire (Agni) which leads to accumulation of half digestive food material (Ama) that disturbs doshas at the anorectal region. Ayurveda has a very effective and easy treatment for anorectal disorders without any complications.
