Sushruta, during the ancient era has devoted separate chapter for two anorectal disorders viz. Arsha (Haemorrhoids) and Bhagadara (Fistula in ano). This evidence represents the prevalence of disease Haemorrhoid amongst the commonest ailments that afflicted mankind; however its management has remained a challenge to medical profession. Though Sushruta has described detailed Hetu of Haemorrhoid, however as lifestyle has been changed significantly therefore it is of great importance to study other causes of Haemorrhoids according to modern era. In lifestyle related diseases management Nidanparivarjan (avoiding causative factor) is as importance as medication therapy. Mithya Ahar Vihar (faulty diet and habits) are predominant of all Hetus. Hence to evaluate relevant causative factors this survey study was undertaken. This study aimed at finding out whether Mithya Ahar Vihar as most predominant Hetu/ Hetus of Haemorrhoid, which may prove as key in the prevalence of the disease as well as treatment of Haemorrhoid. This survey was done with help of specially prepared questionnaire which was filled from 75 randomly selected patients based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. Sushrutokta Hetu which are included as Mithya Ahar Vihar were found mostly always and sometimes.
