    Can this lumbar belt be helpful in the situation for the person where the stool is generated (especially in the evening) but there is a lack of pressure to push it out rather than straining in the toilet leading to Piles?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It might not be useful as a pressure source for bowel evacuation. Including fiber rich diet ( bran, cauliflower, cabbage, berries, green leafy vegetables, Celery, squash, beans, mushroom oranges.) and having warm water frequently during the day should help in easing the bowels.
