Hemorrhoids - How do hemorrhoids develop, how to cure hemorrhoids

By hemorrhoids veins in the anal area are swollen, distended and possible also inflamed. Hemorrhoids at these places are called external hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids can be in the anal opening or in the skin around the anus. Hemorrhoids can also be further inside in the rectum past the anal opening, and therefore more hidden. Hemorrhoids deep inside past the anus are called external hemorrhoids.


Hemorrhoids give these symptoms:

-Veins around the rectal opening, in the opening or further inside in the rectum are swallen and extended by accumulation of blood.

-The skin or mucosa where the veins are swallen are itching.

-The accumulated blood will eventually coagulate and make the hemorrhoid harder.

-The swollen veins may be infected and inflamed, this make them even more swollen, and increases the pain or itching.

-The swollen veins can tear and be bleeding. This most often occurs when the hemorrhoids are inflamed.

-The swollen inflamed veins may rupture totally. Then there will be a greater bleeding, and the content of the swollen vein empties. Then the swelling goes away.

-Ruptured henorrhoids will eventually heal.

-Coagulated blood in hemorrhoids that do not rupture will eventually be absorbed, and the vein may heal so that the hemorrhoid goes away, but the vein and the skin around the vein may be permanently wekened.

-The hemorrhoids may lead to permanent lumps, scars or thickened area after the initial healing.

the leaves are long and narrow, linear or linear lanceolate, 1 cm × 19 cm (0.4 inches × 7.5 inches). The plants has a well prominent tap root with few fibrous secondary roots.

The plant grows flower after 60 days of growth. Many flowering shoots grow from the base of the plant. Flowers are numerous, small, and white. Capsules contain the seeds and these open up when mature.

Commercial uses of psyllium

Psyllium are grown for their seeds. The outer coat of the seeds is separated. From the skin one produces psyllium mucilage by fine grinding and then by ceparating the psyllium fibres from the rest of the material. The psyllium fibre obtained is around 25 % of the total seed weight.

The psyllium husk is used in the pharmaceutical industry to make drugs to regulate the stomach function.

Psyllium muscilage is also used as a soil improver and in techical applications where it is important to bind water.

The inner parts of the seeds are used as food for domestic animals. It contains much carbohydrates (mainly starch) and fat,

The properties of psyllium musilage.

Psyllium mucilage or psyllium husk is a glucoprotein. It consists of long molecules of sugar units combined with long protein units There are many loaded atomic groups in the molecules. This make the substance highly attractive to water and other polar flids.

The dry mucilage is white and fibrous. It is able to absorbe large amounts of water and thereby swell to a gelatinous mass.

All plants contain mucilage. The substance aids to store water, It also helps to give parts of plants enough thickness and stiffness. Succulents such as cacti contain much mucilage and water bounded by the mucilage.

Medical uses of psyllium mucilage

Psyllium mucilage will absorbe water in the intestines. The content inside the intestines will by this effect get a greater volume and soft in an appropriate degree.

If the content in the first place tend to be too dry as by constipatiion, the mucilage will hold on the water and provide the content to be soft enough.

If the content tend to be too loose as with diarrhoea, the mucilage will absorbe much of the water and hold it to provide some firmness.

The substance also stimulate the intestines to move stronger.

Because of these properties psyllium mucilage helps aginst constipation and can also help aginst mild diarrhoea.

Since constipation or hard stool is a direct cause of hemorrhoids, it can also help against this ailment.
