Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids may be due to constipation or other causes resulting in obstruction of the hemorrhoidal venous return followed by varicosity. Hemorrhoids may be external or internal; those below the mucocutaneous junction are considered external, while those above the junction are internal. Internal hemorrhoids are easily fissured, with bleeding and sometimes protrude outside the anus after defecation, producing strangulated pain. External hemorrhoids may thrombose, with blood clots forming beneath the skin. There is then protracted pain of the anus which is aggravated during defecation. External hemorrhoids are visible outside the anus.

Besides acupuncture, medicinal sitz-baths are indicated. If necessary, apply surgical treatment.

Points:

Both sides of the frenulum in the upper lip.

Prescription:

1 cc. of 1% procaine is injected on either side. Treat once a day.
