Before we can deal with anal and rectal problems, we must first know what the anus and its auxiliary parts are.

 

ANATOMY

The anus is the opening at the terminal end of the anal canal. The anal canal is the final portion of the alimentary tract, about 4 cm long, between the rectal ampulla and the anus.

The rectum is "the large portion of the large intestine, about 12 cm long, continuous with the descending sigmoid colon, just proximal to the anal canal." Mosby's Medical Dictionary, 3rd ed., p. 1011

It may sound strange but the alimentary canal actually begins at the mouth. Yes, it begins at the mouth and ends at the anus. Food enters the body at the mouth and exits at the anus.

DISEASES AND AILMENTS OF THE ANUS

Anal Fissure

An anal fissure is "a linear ulceration or laceration of the skin of the anus." Mosby's supra.

An anal fissure could very well stem from a STD infection. However, an anal fissure denotes healing on the part of the body. Lesions and ulcerations on the body are signs that the body is attempting to expel waste, mainly because the normal elimination channels are clogged and not accessible for the expelling of the waste. So while an ulceration or laceration may be quite irritating and perhaps embarrassing to many people, to the human body HEALING is taking place.

Anal Fistula

An anal fistula is "an abnormal opening on the cutaneous surface near the anus, usually resulting in a local crypt abscess and also common in Crohn's disease. The perineum may or may not communicate with the rectum." Mosby's supra, p. 59

An anal crypt is defined as "the depression between rectal columns that encloses networks of veins that, when inflamed and swollen, are called hemorrhoids."

Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids basically means "blood flow" [Greek 'haima' meaning "blood" + 'rhoia' meaning "flow"].

Hemorrhoids are "a varicosity in the lower rectum or anus caused by congestion in the veins of the hemorrhoidal plexus. Internal hemorrhoids originate above the internal sphincter of the anus, they become constricted and painful. Small internal hemorrhoids may bleed with defecation. External hemorrhoids appear outside the anal sphincter. They are usually not painful, and bleeding does not occur unless a hemorrhoidal vein ruptures or thromboses." Mosby's supra, p. 559

The greatest causative factor of hemorrhoids is CONSTIPATION. See our "Constipation" article to learn about causes and effects.

Working on the colon, cleansing it, and keeping it clean and functioning optimally is the best way to prevent constipation and thus hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids result from straining or excess straining while on the toilet in the process of defecation. Diet is the major contributor toward extra-firm stools.

When the stools are hard and one has to strain, fruits and vegetables are not being eaten at all or enough in the daily diet. Enzymes are missing. These enzymes are very necessary because they help stimulate peristalsis (bowel movement). Fruits and vegetables and other "living" foods are loaded with enzymes.

Anal itching

In most cases, anal itching or irritation may be a sign of parasites (parasitic infestation). Parasites are subject to infestation in any part of the body and the rectum and anus are no exception.

Itching in the area of the anus could also stem from an STD infection, like genital herpes. It is very common for warts, bumps, and lesions to appear in the area of the anus.

I have found that in most cases, anal itching is caused by parasitic infection in the anus.

Anal itching can be quite irritating (and embarrassing) because the anus is a strange place for one to scratch.

Anal-rectal bleeding

Anal or rectal bleeding can denote a few things health-wise. Anal bleeding can be a sign of ulcers (due to stress and/or aspirin drug use which literally burns a hole into the intestines as aspirin coverts into harmful and corrosive acetic acid). When one goes to defecate, the stools have blood in them. This can be from either internal hemorrhoids, internal ulcers, or in the worst-case scenario, cancer (i.e., stomach, colon, or rectal).

Anal bleeding can also be the result of anal penetration. The skin sheath or covering of the anus is only one coat or layer strong unlike the female vagina, which is three coats or layers strong, in addition to the ability to self-lubricate unlike the anus. When the skin tears from anal penetration, bleeding will occur.

Rectal cancer

Rectal cancer can result from various things: numerous years of anal abuse via anal penetration from various males who ejaculate not only their sperm, but their sick intention (energy) into the person, and diet loaded with meat and processed foods.

Healing Options

Herbs that assist in the healing of anal problems include:

SENNA LEAF, which works well on the large colon and the rectum.

CASCARA SAGRADA, which helps counteract constipation and a very sluggish colon. Cathartic and laxative herbs greatly help prevent and/or remedy hemorrhoids as well as Crohn's Disease.

HORSE CHESTNUT, though not a colon herb it can heal, repair, and tone the veins, throughout the whole body including the anus. Hemorrhoids involve the veins in the anus area as pointed out supra.

ALOE VERA RESIN is another exceptional aid with great laxative and healing properties.

Herbs that help stop bleeding or hemorrhaging include: Goldenseal Root, Cranesbill, Dragon's Blood, Beth or Birth Root, Yarrow, Cramp Bark, Shepherd's Purse, Lady's Mantle, and Manjistha to name a few.
Avoid using commercial brand laxative such as Ex-Lax as many pharmaceutical grades of laxatives can be very addictive (as drugs have a tendency to be) and create dependency, something herbs don't create. Aloe Vera gel can be rubbed on hemorrhoids or anal lesions or sores to facilitate healing. Aloe Vera juice is a powerful tonic to drink for purposes of healing internal wounds such as gastric ulcers and colon conditions of diverticulitis, colitis, and Crohn's Disease.

ENEMAS, performing a weekly enema can greatly help keep the anus clean and healthy. Contrary to any negative hype surrounding the performance of enemas, enemas are very safe and effective, especially when the enema solution is of an herbal nature. An enema can be performed with regular water (distilled or alkaline is best in this case), herbal tea (herbal laxatives or cathartics), or organic coffee (if you want to target and cleanse your liver).

COLONICS or colon hydrotherapy is also very effective in maintaining the health of the anus and keeping it clean. DHerbs recommends three (3) colonics every three (3) months for the loyal meat-eater as nothing one can eat does as much harm to the intestinal tract and alimentary system as meat and dairy.

Reasons to Stay Clear of Eggs

For many making the transition to a plant-based lifestyle, cheese and eggs can be the hardest things to give up. In fact, a love for eggs and cheese in particular is often cited as one of the reasons people go vegetarian as opposed to vegan. It seems meat is easy to give up for some, while many can’t let go of the dairy stuffs. Recently, a Huffington Post blogger posted on “5 Smart Reasons to Eat Eggs,” with mention of the high protein content of the food, a possible reduced risk of cancer, and more. We’re here to tell you, Green Monsters, this advice isn’t so great for you – or for the animals involved in the egg industry. Here are 5 Reasons to NOT Eat Eggs:

1. Many studies show egg consumption actually increases the risk of certain types of cancers, including colorectal and bladder cancers. Check this out: “A case-control study done in Argentina found that people consuming approximately 1 1/2 eggs per week had nearly 5 times the colorectal cancer risk compared with individuals consuming less than 11 eggs per year. And, the World Health Organization analyzed data from 34 countries and determined that egg consumption was significantly and positively correlated with mortality from colon and rectal cancers in both men and women. Moderate egg consumption also tripled the risk of developing bladder cancer as determined by a case-control study of 130 newly diagnosed bladder cancer patients published in the journal International Urology and Nephrology.” In other words, don’t risk it! There are so many egg alternatives out there that it’s silly to risk your health.

Quote of the day
"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important."

Vermont to Pass GMO Labeling!

Against the odds and the lofty wallets of Monsanto lobbyists, Vermont is soon to be the first state to require mandatory GMO labeling.

On April 16, with a vote of 28 to 2, the Vermont state senate passed a bill that makes GMO labeling mandatory for all foods sold in Vermont. It also identifies it as being illegal for GMO-containing foods to be labelled as “natural” or “all natural.”
