How to Get a Good Nights Sleep When Suffering With Piles

94Here are three simple steps that will allow you to obtain some relief from piles whether they are inflamed, itchy or bleeding, thereby making it easier to have a good nights sleep. Unfortunately, it will require you to purchase some necessary natural plant extracts, however, they are not too expensive and the cost is minimal compared to the benefits they will provide.

Step 1. Fill a bath with warm but not hot water and lie in it until you feel totally relaxed. Warm water will help to get rid of many of the toxins and acids that are embedded into the outer layer of your skin. To intensify the effect, therefore increasing its benefits, you can also add some lavender or geranium oil to the water which will not only help with the relaxation process but will put some life back into your skin as well as calming down your piles. If possible, in order to achieve the best results, you should take a bath like this at least twice a day.

Step 2. After a short while you should feel totally relaxed and before the water starts to get too cold you need to get out and get dried, always ensure that the area around your anus is completely dry. Once you are completely dry use some cotton wool dabbed with witch hazel, which is easily available at many stores and pharmacies, to clean the piles and the surrounding area. Witch hazel is one of many natural astringents that not only clean the skin but will stop any bleeding as it will help to shrink any swollen blood vessels in the affected area.

Step 3. Once the area has been treated with the witch hazel and is completely dry, generously apply some aloe vera to the same area. You should be able to buy a tub of aloe vera from your local chemist without too much trouble. Of the many natural extracts available, aloe vera is probably one of the most versatile and as such is used for a variety of complaints including dryness and itchiness of the skin. This is why aloe vera is extremely useful in the treatment of piles, cooling the affected area down, reducing the itchiness of them and therefore helping them to feel much more comfortable.

Although these three steps are very simple to follow they are still very effective and will provide adequate relief from piles to allow you to obtain a good nights sleep and by using only natural products too, therefore eliminating any unwanted side-effects that are sometimes experienced when using over-the-counter treatments.
