Dr.Raj Baida - The Ayurvedic Specialist for Anorectal Diseases
Anorectal diseases like piles, fissure, fistula, rectal prolapse, and pilonidal sinus polyp are very common among people across the world. In India however, patients suffering from anorectal disease learn to live with the pain rather than opting for proper treatment.

Patients are embarrassed to talk about their issue and even share it with a specialist. Their condition often deteriorates because it goes undiagnosed and undertreated due to associated societal stigma. Such patients fail to realise that anorectal diseases are common like any other medical issue and affect hundreds of thousands people like them across all age groups.

Ayurveda Specialist, Dr. Raj Kumar Baida is a renowned and reputed name in Ayurvedic treatment of anorectal disease like piles, fissures, fistula, rectal prolapse, and pilonidal sinus polyp. During his extensive practice of 20 years, he has successfully treated more than 20,000 patients. He specialises in Kshar Sutra therapy.

Due to his exemplary work in the field of Kshar Sutra therapy. Dr. Raj Baida was awarded by the Delhi Bhartiya Chikitsa Parishad in the year 2012. He received the award from the then Delhi Chief Minister, Late Mrs. Sheila Dixit and Former Delhi Health Minister. Mr. A. K. Walia.

Dr. Raj Baida has established three clinics in New Delhi located in Uttam Nagar, Khanpur and PaharGanj areas to serve the local population with his expertise in treating anorectal diseases like piles, fissures , fistula , rectal prolapse, and pilonidal sinus polyp using Ayurvedic medicines and procedures like Kshara Sutra therapy.

Kshara Sutra therapy is a time-tested Ayurvedic technique to effectively deal with Anorectal disorders. The therapy has been described in detail in Ayurveda by Sushruta, Charak and Vagbhata and its efficacy was studied and re-established by the Dept. of Shalya Tantra, Banaras Hindu University. Later, it was revalidated by scientific organizations like CCRAS and ICMR.

Kshara Sutra therapy is a safe, sure and cost effective method of treatment for anorectal diseases. This technique is being practiced by experienced Ayurveda specialists like Dr. Raj Kumar Baida who uses it to help relieve his patients from the pain and embarrassment that they suffer because of any anorectal disease.

Let us speak to him today and find out how he manages to treat his patients and get them to open up about their ailment considering there is a lot of stigma attached to the same.

Why are hemorrhoids so common in India? What can Indians do to prevent it?

This problem is not only common in India. It is common worldwide because of changes in our lifestyle, our food habits and usage of spices. Hemorrhoids are a very prominent disease among Indians. It goes untreated or undertreated in most patients because people keep it to themselves instead of going to a specialised doctor. Out of embarrassment, these problems are never tackled properly and therefore, patients with these problems keep on suffering.

I recommend the following things to prevent Hemorrhoids:

●     Add a lot of liquid or water to your diet. One should have 3-4 liters of water in their diet.

●     Your diet plan should contain fruits, vegetables, and fibers that prevent future constipation or bowel problems.

●     You should indulge in regular physical activities.

●     Always answer nature’s call promptly.

It is believed that surgery is the ultimate option for the treatment of piles. How valid is the statement?

Every patient is not the same and nor is their medical condition the same. Therefore, every case doesn’t require surgery. Most of the time the right kind of medications cure the disease. If a patient is suffering from early hemorrhoid, then the specialist follows the non-surgical methods of treatment. For severe conditions, also called prolapsed hemorrhoid, the doctor recommends surgical treatment. The type of surgery also varies from patient to patient.

People are still embarrassed and fearful of treatment and even discussion on hemorrhoids. What would be your message to patients who have such emotions?

This is a very genuine problem and our society needs to grow up. It is just another medical issue. It is because of the stigma that this problem is getting out of hand. The first and foremost thing is that you have to come out of the social taboo and accept that it is a medical problem and must be treated like any other medical issue by an expert doctor.

If you feel embarrassed to talk about this, you can find some verified health websites where valid and genuine information is offered. Even better, my advice is to consult a qualified doctor instead of trusting any random website or person.

If you do not consult a doctor or specialist, it may lead to a complication in your particular case. So, to prevent such unfortunate incident please do not be afraid or feel hesitant to discuss with your doctor. Always keep in mind that you are not the only one facing this problem. 20-30% of the people in our society suffer from it too.

That is surely some good advice from an expert who specialises in treatment of anorectal diseases. We hope that people reach out to Dr. Raj Baida with their problem as he specialises in curing patients who suffer from Ano-Rectal ailments through Ayurvedic treatment that is convenient, comfortable and cost effective.
