Anal Fissure Treatment: Myth Or Reality

Are you suffering from anal fissure and now are wondering if treating the ailment is a reality or a myth? Let’s have a quick below to find the solution to this worry.

Anal Fissure (Fissure-in-ano), one of the most common anorectal diseases, which are more or less concerned to an individual’s lifestyle practices. It’s more of a vicious cycle of painful constipation causing the anal sphincter muscles to go into spasms. This, in turn, leads to more pain and spasms. This cycle ultimately makes bowel movements extremely difficult and painful, worsening constipation. The treatment for curing anal fissure aims to break the same cycle of spasms of the anal sphincter and repeated tearing of the anoderms.

When it comes to treating anal fissure, various alternatives are recommended by fissure specialists. However, the initial treatments are often effective towards softening stools and preventing constipation. At Healing Hands Clinic, the best fissure clinic in Pune, we recommend a fissure patient to include fibre-rich foods in diet and increase the water & fluid intake. Moreover, This dietary modification is also supplemented by Constac – a herbal laxative prepared exclusively at HHC.

Another treatment approach for anal fissure is Sitz bath, simply sitting in warm water to allow your sphincter muscles relax. This procedure lessens the anal sphincter muscle spasms, if practiced regularly. Surgery is the ultimate treatment alternative recommended by most of fissure doctors, when fissure reaches a chronic stage.

Dr. Ashwin Porwal‘s Healing Hands Clinic provides novel fissure treatment in Pune, in contrast to conventional interventions. We offer an innovative Ayurvedic oil therapy in 5-6 sessions, continuing for 10-15 minutes. Subjecting a fissure to this treatment for about seven successive days can be an effective treatment to cure the ailment. If none of the treatment alternatives works out to be successful, HHC recommends a painless procedure – Laser (Radiofrquency) fissure surgery.

In a nutshell, treatment for anal fissure is not a myth; in fact, a range of treatments is available but 100% cure cannot be assured by all of them.

Mulvyadh Treatment in Pune


‘Piles’, clinically known as ‘Haemorrhoids’ and vernacularly known as ‘Mulvyadh’ in Maharashtra, are inflamed blood vessels located near the anal opening, causing the lining of the anal canal to slide down. Piles appear as small lumps formed on the surface of the anus inside the back passage. When the pressure on anal blood vessels increases, they swell and enlarge to form small lumps i.e. Haemorrhoids. They can develop inside or outside the anus, according to which they are classified as internal and external haemorrhoids.

Suffering from piles is painful and equally embarrassing. Many people try out conventional home remedies rather than consulting a physician about primary symptoms. Most of Piles cases cure within a few days without medication and further surgical intervention. However, home remedies may not always be helpful in curing the ailment. It’s better to visit a specialist, if home remedies don’t seem to deliver positive results and piles recurrently develop.

There’s nothing to feel awkward, if you are suffering from Haemorrhoids because it’s one of the most common lifestyle diseases. As soon as you notice any symptom indicating the occurrence of Piles, it’s advisable to discuss the same with a Colorectal Surgeon.

Common Symptoms of Piles

Anal itching & recurrent bleeding
Mucus discharge
Painful & strained bowel movements
Dragging sensation in the back passage
Sliding down of the anal parts
According to the extent and inflammation, Haemorrhoids are classified in four stages. The symptoms and treatment alternatives become complex, as the ailment worsens from Grade I to Grade IV. When diagnosed in Grade I or II, Piles can be cured by home remedies, medication, physiotherapy and dietary modifications. However, it’s difficult to cure it in Grade III & IV without surgical intervention.

Detection of Piles

Piles can be diagnosed through physical examination and in some cases, advanced diagnostic techniques such as Colonoscopy and Sigmoidoscopy need to be performed

High Fiber Diet- Taking a huge leap away from Hemorrhoids

High Fiber Diet for Piles

Urban cities are offering global cuisine, with fast food joints gaining maximum popularity. Even local fast food/street food joints are buzzing. Traditional home-made food is taking a backstage owing to busy lifestyles of professionals both young and old. “Eating out” is an important part of socialization. Besides, when there is no time to cook, processed and packaged products may appear to be saviors. Be warned! While you are busy chasing your careers, these foods act as wolves in sheepskin.
Hemorrhoids or Bawaseer is an increasing health concern in India. About 4.7 % Indians are affected by hemorrhoids, and the percentage is on the rise.Nearly 10 lakh new cases are reported annually. It is no big surprise especially with the changing trends in food intake. A diet lacking in fiber and erratic dietary habits can cause constipation which is directly linked to hemorrhoids.
Dietary fiber is the indigestible part of food which is derived from the plant source. It has several beneficial effects on the gastrointestinal system as follows:

It adds volume to the food and gives satiety.

It absorbs water and helps to soften the stools as a result.

It quickens the passage of food which helps in defecation.

It adds bulk to the stool and therefore helps prevent constipation.

It helps maintain the pH level of the gastrointestinal system.

It is known to reduce the risk of colon cancer.
