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.

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.
