What Are Haemorrhoids?
Haemorrhoids, or Piles, are swellings in and around the rectum and the anus that contain enlarged and swollen blood vessels. In most cases, people may not even know that they have them, but severe haemorrhoids can be painful and itchy.
5 Top Tips to Treat & Prevent Haemorrhoids
Strengthen Your Pelvic Floor
When doing kegel exercises you increase your blood circulation in the anal area preventing piles from developing and the stronger anal muscles are the greater support you have to stop internal piles protruding.
Typical western toilets don’t allow you to sit in the correct position for full bowel elimination. The Go Better Stool puts you in the correct position to release the puborectalis muscle, helping you fully empty your bowels easily.
Avoid Heavy Lifting
When you lift a heavy object, correctly or not, you are putting a big strain on your rectal area which can not only cause piles but it can also cause rectal prolapse and you don’t want that!
Pushing hard when going to the loo puts strain on your rectum and anus and can cause the blood vessels to swell making piles develop. The Go Better Stool will help you pass poop without having to strain.
Don't Sit for Too Long
Sitting (and standing) for long periods of time can increase pressure on the veins in the anus. If you do need to sit for long periods of time try our Kegel8 Wedge Cushion to correct you posture.
