Gout - How Effective Is Homeopathy In It?

Gout is a disease of the joints. It is a kind of arthritis, which is caused by the deposition of uric acid in the joints. The deposited uric acid causes inflammation of the joints. The disease occurs when our body fails to eliminate the excess uric acid in blood by excretion or the production of the acid is increased.

The level of uric acid in our bodies goes up when the amount of purines in our meals is increased. Purines are responsible for the production of uric acid. They are found in meats, alcohol, sea food and other food items. When digestion of these foods takes place inside the body, purine is released into the blood stream. Uric acid level is also increased by a sedentary lifestyle. Sometimes other factors like intake of insufficient water, consumption of medicines and obesity can also affect the uric acid level in the blood.

Symptoms of Gout

One will notice a redness and swelling around the affected joint. Gout commonly affects the big toe, ankles, hands and wrists. The patient has to deal with intense shooting pain in the joint. The patient also feels some itching in the affected region. Some patients develop nodules called tophi in the joints.

Homeopathy Treatment for Gout

In most cases, patients seeking allopathic treatment for gout take frequent pain killers to get rid of the pain. The pain killers will provide temporary relief. But the main problem persists. However, homeopathy treats the root cause of the problem and aims at eradicating the disease completely. In this article, three commonly used homeopathic medicines used for treating gout have been listed. However, these medicines may not suit all individuals with gout. The effectiveness of the medicines largely depends on the patient’s lifestyle. These medicines are listed below:

  1. Colchicum: It is the primary medicine given to patients suffering from gout. It is good for the treatment of the chronic cases. It is given to patients who suffer from pain in the big toe. The pain is unbearable, when the affected area is touched. The region turns hot, red and swollen. In these patients, the pain starts from the left side usually. The patient feels feverish. Their problem will intensify in warm weather. Their joints get stiffer.

  2. Ledum Pal: It is for patients who suffer from gout pain travelling upwards. The pain is likely to start from the patient’s feet and travel towards the knees. The patient will not be able to bear external warmth. The patient feels better with cold application.

  3. Benzoic Acid: This medicine is for patients who suffer from gout along with offensive urine. The odour of the urine is intolerable. The colour of the urine is unusual—brown in colour sometimes. There is a cracking sound in the joints.

Homoeopathic medicines can be a big boon for all those who suffer from high uric acid. These medicines work by reducing the uric acids overproduction by the body and accelerating the removal of this waste product from through the kidneys.

Homoeopathy is known to control the uric acid diathesis and is also useful in acute attacks. Homeopathy helps in controlling the pain during the acute attack of gout as well as helps in preventing the recurrence of such episodes. It helps in reducing stiffness and improves the mobility of the joints.

One big advantage that homoeopathy offers in the treatment of high uric acid is that once treated the chances of relapse are very less, this is also subjected to the condition that diet and Alcohol and weight are well controlled.

With continued treatment from a specialised homeopath, the patient notices a reduction in the frequency of attacks and intensity of pains with gradually leading to complete cure.

Know How Safe Is Homeopathy As Compared To Other Treatments!

Know How Safe Is Homeopathy As Compared To Other Treatments!

Homeopathy literally translates to same/similar and study. The philosophy of homeopathy is like cures like. The medications that are usually prescribed by homeopathy doctors contain the same ingredients which would cause the disease. For example, if gout is due to excessive uric acid, the treatment also would include uric acid, but at highly diluted doses.

There is constant controversy as to whether this actually works. While there are numerous patients who have benefitted from using these products, there is another segment which claims that they just have a placebo effect and actually are not of any medicinal value. The following are some points raised by clinicians and patients all over which question homeopathy.

  1. Arriving at the right prescription: No two individuals are given the same treatment in homeopathy, even though they may have the exact clinical presentation. The doctor needs to spend a lot of time to discuss other symptoms and then come to a conclusion as to what to use. This is extremely complex and even tricky sometimes. Arriving at a wrong conclusion and giving the wrong medication is quite possible if a proper diagnosis and case study is not done. This is one big risk that is raised against homeopathy.
  2. Limited trial periods: Another argument against homeopathy is that none of these products have gone through clinical trials and therefore their safety is a big question. There are also reports of people having had adverse reactions to some homeopathy medicines.
  3. Uncertain responses: Just as the diagnosis, even the response to treatment is unique and specific to individuals. While some medicine might work for a person, it may not work for another. Also, the duration of treatment can widely vary. Some might respond in days, others might take weeks or sometimes even months. In the meantime, there could be other symptoms arising as a result of the medicine per se.
  4. Homeopathic aggravation: Going by its basic philosophy, homeopathy uses the same medicine to treat the symptoms which would induce it in the first place. Therefore, there is a high chance of initial aggravation of symptoms at the beginning of therapy. Patients who choose homeopathy are often warned of this and advised not to worry about this, as this is a typical observation.
  5. Drug interactions and side effects: Many homeopathy products have significant side effects. What can affect one body system in a positive way can have a negative effect on another body system. However, the argument is that the medicine is used in highly diluted forms and are not capable of causing any adverse effects.

Uric Acid - Know How Ayurvedic Treatment Can Give You Respite From Uric Acid!

Uric Acid - Know How Ayurvedic Treatment Can Give You Respite From Uric Acid!

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-

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Even though some of the ayurvedic treatment for uric acid are mentioned here, it is better to take proper advice from your ayurveda practitioner, as the dosage and frequency must be decided by your doctor only based on the symptoms and your medical history.

Healthy Diet Chart For High Uric Acid Patients In Hindi - उच्च यूरिक एसिड रोगियों के लिए स्वस्थ आहार चार्ट

यूरिक एसिड की मात्रा बढ़ जाने से कई समस्याएँ होने लगती है. उच्च यूरिक एसिड होने से हमारे शरीर के बहुत से अंग प्रभावित होते हैं. उच्च यूरिक एसिड के कारण पैरों के अंगूठे, टखने. घुटने, जोड़ों और एड़ी भी प्रभावित हो सकते हैं. उच्च यूरिक एसिड के गुणों और लक्षणों के आधार पर कहा जा सकता है कि यह बीमारी अर्थराइटिस का ही एक रूप है. क्योंकि इसमें भी जोड़ों और अन्य स्थानों पर उसी तरह की सूजन होता है जैसा कि अर्थराइटिस में होता है. आमतौर पर लंबे समय तक भोजन न करने, डीहाइड्रेशन, तनाव, कसरत न करना, शराब का सेवन बहुत ज्यादा करना आदि के कारण उच्च यूरिक एसिड की समस्या हो सकती है. इसके अलावा जंक फूड और जीवन शैली में बदलाव भी इसके कारण हो सकते हैं. आइए उच्च यूरिक एसिड से पीड़ित मरीजों के लिए आवश्यक आहार चार्ट का अध्ययन करें.

Uric Acid - Most Common Problem

You must have come across people who complaint about having something called ‘gout’. Gout is a disease characterized by an abnormal metabolism of uric acid, resulting in an excess of uric acid in the tissues and blood.

Follow these tips which will help you lower your uric acid levels:

1) increase water intake- 

Water is required to flush off the uric acid formed in the body. When the body is well hydrated, uric acid crystals are difficult to form. Drink at least 3-4 liters per day to remove the uric acid from the body. You can include buttermilk, coconut water, lemon water, green tea etc to increase your overall fluid intake

2) reduce intake of purine rich food- 

Uric acid is formed by breakdown of proteins called purines. Although, it is naturally formed by the body, it is also obtained from certain foods like red meat, mushrooms, baked products containing yeast and fermented products. You can include lentils, split dals, milk, egg whites etc to improve your protein intake.

3) high fiber food– 

Foods high in fiber absorb uric acid present in the blood stream and thus easily eliminating it through kidneys. Good fiber sources are fruits, vegetables, whole grains and products over refined products.

4) avoid intake of caffeine and alcohol-

 Caffeine and products containing caffeine like coffee, tea, aerated drinks, and alcohol hinder excretion of uric acid from the blood stream by binding it. 

5) consume good amount of vitamin c rich foods- 

Vitamin c helps in excretion of uric acid. Sources of vitamin c- citrus fruits, bell peppers, cabbage, amla (indian gooseberry), guava, etc will help reduce uric acid.

6) reduce sugar intake- 

Sugar interferes with excretion of uric acid. A study mentioned that daily intake of 300 ml serving of sweetened drink increases chances of gout by 13%

7) consuming apple cider vinegar- 

Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid which turns alkaline in body making the environment alkaline. It is said that it breaks the uric acid crystals and prevents from recurrence by aiding blood circulation and purification. It reduces inflammation and swelling in the joints allowing for better flexibility of the joints.

Try these simple instructions and you can definitely see the changes.
