PREVENTION

  • Avoid prolonged straining at stools.
  • Take diet rich in fibers (like beans, bran, broccoli, salads, fruits). This will prevent constipation which is one of the cause of piles.
  • Drink plenty of liquids (8-10 glasses at least).  Have a regular exercise schedule (maybe brisk walking for 20 minutes) but avoid weight lifting exercises or other exercises that put extra effort on the belly.
  • Avoid moving heavy objects or weight lifting.
  • Lose weight if you are obese.
