Illnesses from A to Z


No one likes to talk about this topic, but almost one in every two adults knows some of the problems: itching, burning, oozing or even light red bleeding when defecating. Haemorrhoids refers to the blood vessels at the opening of the rectum that cause problems when blood accumulates in them and cannot flow away unhindered. Node-like thicknesses occur which are prone to inflammation and can burst under pressure. Causes of this can be excessively hard defecation and too severe pressing resulting from this, as well as a low-fibre diet, insufficient fluid intake, a lack of exercise, prolonged sitting, as well as pregnancy.

In general, a weakness of the connective tissue encourages the occurrence of haemorrhoids. The complaint can ideally be prevented by ensuring regular bowel movements. Medicinal mushrooms can be very helpful due to their high fibre content and numerous other properties. In addition, excess weight should be avoided and physical activity should be ensured where possible every day. With these measures, existing haemorrhoids that are not yet too pronounced can be alleviated. However, in severe cases, only surgical removal helps.
