Your body produces uric acid when it breaks down purines - substances that are found naturally in your body, as well as in certain foods, such as steak, organ meats and seafood. Other foods also promote higher levels of uric acid, such as alcoholic beverages, especially beer, and drinks sweetened with fruit sugar (fructose).
Normally, uric acid dissolves in your blood and passes through your kidneys into your urine. But sometimes your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys excrete too little uric acid. When this happens, uric acid can build up, forming sharp, needle-like urate crystals in a joint or surrounding tissue that cause pain, inflammation and swelling, called gout.

Homoeopathy offers permanent cure for such tendency since it is the susceptibility which makes one more prone for high uric acid while under same circumstances other people are normal.
Homoeopathic medicines such as colchicum, benzoicum acidum, nitricum acidum, aconite, thuja, lycopodium, nux vomica, ledum pal, antimonium crudum, sabina are very good in treating gout, for complete cure medicines should be selected based on symptom similarity and minimum dose only.
