Curd, also known as yogurt, contains probiotics which are beneficial bacteria that help in maintaining a healthy gut flora. However, there is limited scientific evidence to suggest that curd can directly alleviate the symptoms of piles (hemorrhoids).
Piles are swollen veins in the rectum or anus that can cause discomfort, pain, itching, and bleeding. The main causes of piles include constipation, straining during bowel movements, and prolonged sitting or standing.
While curd may not directly treat piles, it can help in preventing constipation and maintaining a healthy digestive system. This can indirectly reduce the risk of developing piles or worsening existing symptoms. Eating a diet rich in fiber, drinking plenty of water, and exercising regularly are also important for preventing and managing piles.
It’s important to note that if you are experiencing persistent or severe symptoms of piles, you should consult a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.
