Although homeopathic substances listed in this article are generally not known to cause serious side effects, their effectiveness has not been demonstrated by scientific research. Consumers should check labels carefully, since a homeopathic product that is not diluted, or not diluted enough, may contain ingredients that cause allergic reactions, side effects, or interactions. It is always advisable to discuss any new treatment program with your healthcare practitioner.
Hemorrhoids (or piles) are troublesome varicose veins in the rectal and anal region which can lead to protrusion, pain and bleeding after bowel movements. This condition can occur at any age, and the symptoms can come and go unpredictably. Constipation, overeating and inadequate exercise may contribute to the problem. Homeopathic medicines can offer gentle, safe relief. (A constitutional homeopathic treatment chosen by an experienced practitioner often helps a person overcome the tendency toward hemorrhoids.) If hemorrhoids are very sore and congested, ulcerated, or bleed profusely, medical care should be sought.
