Piles can be cured through various yoga asanas. Piles and yoga simply means that yoga helps a great deal to treat piles. Before we go onto exactly how piles and yoga works, it is important to know just what Piles are. Piles are enlarged blood vessels which are present near the anal region. This disease can affect people of all ages. The veins present in the rectal area get inflamed and this results in a great deal of pain. There are two types of Piles – external and internal. Internal piles are those which are found inside the body, close tot the anal canal. External piles can be seen outside. There are several reasons why piles occur. These include:-

• Obesity
• Stress
• Lack of exercise
• Intake of a low fiber diet
• Constipation
• Eating too much oily and spicy food
• Pregnant women suffer from piles as the fetus gets heavier and puts weight on the abdomen. Increased blood flow during pregnancy is also the reason for this.
