Hello Harsha,

Fissure and piles, both are a result of improper metabolism and sedentary lifestyle. Blood in stool is a symptom of fissure. It can be cured by following a correct lifestyle and by having a correct diet. 

Some reasons that may cause fissure

  • Taking fatty foods.
  • Having spicy foods.
  • Eating packaged and processed food items. 
  • Tea and coffee. 
  • Not taking proper sleep.
  • Stress
  • Wrong sleeping pattern.
  • Sedentary lifestyle. 

What should be done to cure fissure naturally?


  • Take a fluid diet, have fresh fruit juices with fibres and coconut water. 
  • Include salads, sprouts, fruits, and vegetables in your diet. 
  • Have a rich fibrous diet.
  • Avoid milk and all the milk based products. 
  • Have whole grains in place of refined grains.
  • Avoid animal based products. 
  • Have brown sugar in place of refined sugar.
  • Use coconut oil in place of refined oil. 

Physical activity 

  • Take a 30min walk daily in the morning. 
  • Indulge yourself in some physical activities like football, basketball, running, jogging, skipping. 

Perform yoga and pranayam-

Performing the following asanas improves the digestive system and helps to cure piles.

  • Mula bandha asana
  • Sarvanga asana
  • Shishu asana
  • Pada Hasta asana
  • Bhujanga asana
  • Vajra asana


Sleep is very important to maintain circadian rhythm and hence in turn hormonal balance. 

Quality and duration of sleep, both are equally very important. It also reduces stress and maintains mental balance. 

So, take good quality sleep for at least 6-8hours a day.


Do check if you are on some medications because sometimes some medicines cause constipation. 

So, kindly pay attention to the kind of medicines you take.

Habits to improve 

  • Get up early in the morning. 
  • Start your day by having warm water mixed with a few drops of lemon. 
  • Walk barefoot on grass in the morning. 

Thank you

Fissure is a small tear in the lining of the anus. It typically heals within 6 weeks with conservative treatment.  Anal fissures that last for 6 weeks or more are called chronic anal fissures.

Signs and symptoms of an anal fissure include:

  • Pain, sometimes severe, during bowel movements
  • Pain after bowel movements that can last up to several hours
  • Bright red blood on the stool or toilet paper after a bowel movement
  • A visible crack in the skin around the anus
  • A small lump or skin tag on the skin near the anal fissure

Another possible cause of bright red blood is hemorrhoids.

Common causes of an anal fissure include:

  • Passing large or hard stools
  • Constipation and straining during bowel movements
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Anal intercourse
  • Childbirth

Short term treatment – Go on a liquid and semi-solid diet for 3-4 days (If you are not suffering from any other health complication like diabetes or high b.p, etc)

You can take the following juices –

Morning – as you wake up -Aloe vera juice, after 30 minutes green juice

After 2 hours - Pineapple juice

Lunch – Simple khichdi with plant-based curd

Evening - Beet and carrot juice

1 hour later - Papaya shake

Dinner - Pineapple juice

Apply coconut oil on the anal region 3 times daily till the tear heals.

Long term management

  1. Apply coconut oil once a day after the tear heals to prevent further damage
  2. Take a diet high in fiber like – millets, green leafy vegetables and local seasonal fruits
  3. Take a bowl full of papaya daily
  4. Take 1 tablespoon of soaked fenugreek seeds daily just before lunch
  5. Take a hip bath with neem water twice a week
  6. Water – Drink at least 3 L of water every day
  7. Sleep- Sleeping is very important to maintain the circadian rhythm and also to relieve stress from the body and mind. 

Take proper sleep of at least 7-8hours daily. Sleep early at night at around 9- 10 pm and also wake up early in the morning at around 6 am. 

Not taking proper sleep can also induce constipation which can aggravate your problems

Foods to avoid

  • Avoid carbonated drinks. 
  • Avoid tea, coffee, and other caffeinated drinks. 
  • Avoid dairy products and animal foods. 
  • Avoid processed and packaged food items. 
  • Avoid refined oils, refined grains, and refined sugars.
