Our body is a wonderful mechanism that uses different fuels like enzymes, lipids, hormones, bile, glucose and a plethora of other bodily fluids to ensure sound sustenance. A healthy body is that in which all these fuels exist in harmony. When this balance is disrupted, the vessel goes through a lot of disorders.
Uric acid is produced as a result of the breakdown of the body cells and some of the foods that we consume. Usually, the kidneys eliminate the excess uric acid from the body. However, when the kidneys fail to do so owing to kidney stones or other kidney conditions, the amount of uric acid increases in our blood-stream and causes a condition called gout, which is accompanied by inflammation of the joint.
Allopathic medicines that are prescribed to treat uric acid in the blood can cause a lot of side-effects including nausea, diarrhoea, and gastrointestinal disorders. Ayurvedic treatment, on the contrary, is an age-old method of curing disorders by the use of natural products that do not lead to any side-effects. Here is a quick discussion on some of the major Ayurvedic components that can treat uric acid-
When the Sanskrit term Triphala is translated into English, it means three fruits. The three fruits that are used to make this Ayurvedic blend are Amalaki, Bibhitaki and Haritaki. All these fruits induce detoxification. Uric acid is nothing but surplus body toxic. Triphala purifies the body by working against this excess toxic.
According to Ayurveda, the body is made up of five elements, fire, air, water, earth, and space. Pitta dosha is a condition that is accompanied by the increase of the fire element in the body. Uric acid is indeed produced in excess by fiery foods like animal organs such as liver, alcoholic drinks, and sea foods. Some Ayurvedic medicines use natural components like Neem, Katuki and Manjistha to cure uric acid which develops due to pitta dosha.
Giloy, also known as Tinospora is an Ayurvedic component that strengthens the immune system and Daruhaldi, also known as Barbery, is another component that reduces inflammation of the joint.
Ayurvedic drugs are made up of various herbs working in synergy to cure the disorienting symptoms of uric acid. These herbs include Amla, Haritaki, Bahera, Vacha, Neem, Manjistha, Katuki, Giloy, Daruhaldi.
A person with uric acid must stay away from foods rich in purine and fructose. Apart from taking Ayurvedic drugs one can also consume fruits like strawberries, grapes, blueberries, and cherries, drink 2-3 liters of water every day, add baking soda to their diet to fight excess uric acid.
