By promoting gastrointestinal and circulatory health, Avatrol eases the discomfort associated with hemorrhoidal symptoms. Avatrol helps to re-shift your focus from hemorrhoid management, to fulfilling your daily responsibilities.
Hemorrhoids. A word that ushers in a sense of embarrassment. Despite the regularity of this condition in the adult populous, it seems that no one wants to talk about them, not even to their personal physician. As a result, the condition remains ignored and individual's suffering from hemorrhoid's discomforting and, at times, painful symptoms, remain in silence. However, this does not have to occur. Progressive Health's naturopathic physicians have designed avatrol with your integrity in mind; helping you to understand that hemorrhoids are, in fact, common place, and completely preventable and manageable.
Avatrol contains a synergistic blend of clinically proven ingredients. These nutrients address any underlying dietary inadequacies and have been shown to promote circulatory and digestive health, as well as muscle function of the large intestine.
What are Hemorrhoids?
Hemorrhoids are protrusions in the vascular network beneath the anal canal. Some physicians actually denote this bulge an enlarged vein, or varicose vein. In healthy person, the tissue surrounding the anus, or "anal cushion," fills with blood to help regulate the elimination of waste materials from the body (i.e. bowel movements). When excessive pressure, or other factors, cause the veins within the aforementioned "cushions" to become inflammed and stretch, hemorrhoids result.
There are three classifications of hemorrhoids, either of the External, Internal, or Prolapsed variety. External hemorrhoids refers to a swelling under the skin around the anus. Conversely, Internal hemorrhoids refers to a swelling inside the anus. Internal hemorrhoids are categorized in degrees of severity. For example; the first, second, third, or fourth degree. Internal and External hemorrhoids can occur simultaneously. Prolapsed hemorrhoids occur when an internal hemorrhoid protrudes outside of the anus.
Signs and Symptoms:
The signs and symptoms of hemorrhoids vary from person to person, and are dependant upon the classification of hemorrhoid. Keep in mind that the signs and symptoms listed below may be an indicator of a more severe, underlying deficiency.
External Hemorrhoids: Itching, Burning, and Irritation are common. Streaks of blood may also appear on toilet paper after straining during bowel movements. You may also find it difficult to thoroughly cleanse the anal area.
Internal Hemorrhoids: Rectal Bleeding and pain are regularly complained about. Internal hemorrhoids can be extremely painful, as they often protude most all the time and can become thrombosed, or clotted. Mucus is also another indicator of Internal hemorrhoids, as is blood upon your stools or in the toilet.
Causes and Risk Factors:
A variety of reasons contributed to one developing hemorrhoid. Potential sources, or causes, of hemorrhoids include;
"By age fifty, approximately half of all adults will have to manage the nagging itchiness, bleeding, inflammation, and pain that is associated with mild to moderately severe hemorrhoids."
Diagnosis begins at home with noticing any inconsistencies or symptoms associated with hemorrhoids, and ends with a comprehnesive, medical evaluation. During a physical assessment for hemorrhoids, physicians examine the anal area to receive a definitive diagnosis. This process usually begins with the removal of your clothing from the waste down. It is likely that you'll be asked to lye on an examination table for the preliminary examination, so that the practitioner may look for any evidence relating to any one of the classifications of hemorrhoids. A rectal exam can also be performed. Further examination entails the use of an anoscope. A small tube with a light is inserted into the rectum can help the doctor locate any existing internal hemorrhoids.
Standard treatment approaches for hemorroids involve several options, including prescription or over-the-counter medications and surgical procedures, and are most often dependant upon condition severity. However, mild hemorrhoids can be treated by employing simple changes to diet and bowel habits. Most cases do not require surgery or specialized treatments, unless they have become extremely painful.
Nonsurgical procedures, also called fixative procedures, are goal based treatments, where consistent application by the individual is necessary. These may include prescription medications, hemorrhoidal creams, or suppositories. Only the severest of cases require surgery. Again, like nonsurgical treatments, options for surgical procedures are dependant upon condition severity. Options include:
Sclerotherapy: A chemical solution is injected around the hemorrhoid. The objective of sclerotherapy is to limit blood supply to the hemorrhoid, until the condition subsides and/or the hemorrhoid shrinks. The remaining scar tissue that has formed (resulting from the lack of blood supply and shrinkage of the hemorrhoid) minimizes the recurrence of the condition by supporting surrounding anal tissues.
Rubber-band Ligation: This is an outpatient procedure that is relatively nontraumatic. During the treatment a rubber-band is placed around the base of the hemorhoid inside the rectum. Like sclerotherapy, the band cuts off circulation and causes the hemorrhoid to whither away within a number of days. More than one session may be necessary.
Infrared light: During this procedure, bursts of infrared light are used to inhibit blood circulation to small, bleeding, internal hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoidectomy: This refers to the actual excision of the hemorrhoids and subsequent resuturing of any affected rectal mucosa. It is usually the last option and is only used if all other treatment options have failed. It can be done on either an inpatient or outpatient setting, and requires anesthesia.
Avatrol May be Employed to Lessen the Severity of YOUR Current Hemorrhoid symptoms, While Drastically Reducing The Potential For Any Recurrence.
Research indicates that obesity, lack of exercise, liver damage, food allergies, and(most importantly) the insufficient consumption of dietary fibers all contribute to the development of hemorrhoids. As a result, many doctors now recommend that persons with hemorrhoid issues increase fibers (both soluble and insoluble), liquids, and nutritional supplements for condition management. Specific herbs, flavonoids, and vitamins have been clinically evaluated, exhibiting positive marks in the scope of recurrent hemorrhoids treatment and prevention.
Using the latest findings from the scientific community, Progressive Health's Avatrol has been specially designed for hemorrhoid symptom management. Avatrol contains a synergistic blend of all-natural ingredients that promote circulatory and gastrointestinal health. Other key botanicals enhance the bulk of stools and decrease the risks of constipation.
