Hemorrhoids or piles is a type of gastrointestinal disorder in India where the required medication is often not available or too expensive for local people. Other possibilities have to be investigated, like traditional medication in the form of medicinal plants to control the symptoms of the disease. By visiting tribal zones of Bihar, a big table was made, containing approx 90 species which all have a potential effect against hemorrhoids. Aegle marmelos , Aloe vera , Cassia fistula , Commiphora mukul , Dalbergia sissoo, Eclipta alba, Emblica officinalis, Ficus carica Linn, Ginkgo biloba, Linum usitatissimum L., Mangifera indica Linn, Momordica charantia,, Nauclea latifolia,, Ocimum canum, Solanum melongena L., Strychnos Nux- vomica Linn.,Tinospora cordifolia, Syzygium aromaticum and Moringa oleifera seem to be the most promising species for treatment. To solve the problem of unaffordable medication, a closer look should be taken to the common food crops, approx 107 plant species were applied to different patients among the tribals which have a possible effect against the hemorrhoid may be internal or externally prolapsed High fibre food may reduce constipation and enhance the bowel movements. Having different grades of piles either externally in the form of paste or internally as oral drug. The whole plant or its part either alone or in combination are used for treatment.
