Yoga Cure to Treat Hemorrhoids


Hemorrhoids are swelling around the anus. This can happen as a result of constipation when the liver is not working well, not getting enough exercise, too much sexual activity, and varicose veins, which leads to large pockets of blood in stretched veins. Yoga can help alleviate symptoms of hemorrhoids through different asanas, or poses. You should do these poses along with meditation and eating a suitable diet. Consult your physician for personalized instructions.

Supported Shoulder Stands

  • A supported shoulder stand stimulates the internal organs and glands, which is helpful for proper liver function. It also increases blood circulation because being in an inverted position will reverse the forces of gravity. Varicose veins, and thus hemorrhoids, can occur when gravity pulls blood downward through the veins with weak valves, causing a back up of blood that stretches the veins. This makes a pocket for blood to flow into and swell. The shoulder stand will reverse those effects as you turn your body upside down. To get into a shoulder stand lie on your back and raise your legs straight up to the ceiling. Squeeze your abs and place your hands at your sides. Rock your hips and lift your hips off the ground shooting your legs upwards. Place your hands on your lower back and hips to help hold you up, keeping your elbows on the floor. Extend your body as straight as you can from foot to shoulder. Your neck and shoulders will stay on the ground. You can also use a wall to walk your legs up high enough to get your hands under your hips to begin the pose. Hold for as long as comfortable and breathe deeply through your nose. Work up to six minutes in this pose, adding 15 seconds to your time each week. Do once daily.
    Headstands are another inverted pose that can be done for hemorrhoid relief, but it is more advanced. Master the supported and then unsupported shoulder stand before trying a supported headstand.

Forward Folds

  • The standing and seated forward folds are recommended for hemorrhoid sufferers because pressure is placed on the abdomen that stimulates internal organs including the liver. It is also relieves tension in the hips, thighs, and hamstrings, which will aid circulation of blood flow to those areas. To do the standing forward fold, stand with your feet together and bend forward from the waist to reach for your toes. You can start by reaching for your knees and allow gravity to pull you further down as you relax. Squeeze your abs to protect your lower back. Breathe through your nose, slowly and deeply. Hold for five seconds or more and then stand back up slowly. Do two to four repetitions.

Fish Pose

  • The Fish Pose is another pose that can help hemorrhoids. It strengthens and activates the abdominal organs, the pelvic organs, and the nerves associated with sexual functions. Lie on your back with your legs straight on the floor. Arch your lower back and raise your hips off the floor. Tilt your chin back and place the crown of your head on the floor. Keep your arms at your sides or place your hands under your lower back. Do one to three reps.

Other Poses

  • Other recommended poses and sequences include Mountain Pose, the Wind Releasing Pose, and Sun Salutations. Proper breathing or pranayama will also be beneficial. These are common practices you can learn from a yoga class or DVD.
