A central tenet in Ayurvedic medicine is the idea that there are three doshas, or body types: pitta, vata, and kapha. Each dosha relates to a specific element – fire (pitta), air (vata), and water (kapha) – and a person with one dominant dosha will display physical or emotional characteristics consistent with that element.
The ultimate goal in Ayurveda is to balance each dosha. This is done through a combination of diet, lifestyle modifications, and herbal remedies.

Types of Piles
As the name suggests, internal piles occur inside the anal canal, but they can also come out and hang outside your anus. This type of piles is further classified on the basis of whether they come out of the anus and if they do, how far are they out. They are classified as-
First degree- This type of piles do not come out of the anus but might bleed
Second degree- They come out during a bowel movement but then go inside later
Third degree- They come out but will go inside if you push them
Fourth degree- They are partially out of your anus and cannot be pushed inside. They can swell and can result in immense pain if blood clotting occurs inside the lump
External piles, on the other hand, occur close to the anus below the anal canal. They too can be painful if blood clots inside the lumps.
