Gout Uric Acid Homeopathic Treatment

Gout is a form of arthritis which is caused by the accumulation of uric acid crystals in joints. In this condition, due to a metabolic dysfunction, there is deposition of uric acid in and around the joints causing severe painfulness, swelling and restricted mobility of the affected joint.

When crystals form in the joints, it causes recurring attacks of joint inflammation arthritis. Gout is considered a chronic and progressive disease. Chronic gout can also lead to deposits of hard lumps of uric acid in the tissues, particularly in and around the joints and may cause joint destruction, decreased kidney function, and Gout has the unique distinction of being one of the most frequently recorded medical illnesses throughout history. It is often related to an inherited abnormality in the body's ability to process uric acid.

Uric acid is a breakdown product of purines that are part of many foods we eat. An abnormality in handling uric acid can cause attacks of painful arthritis (gout attack), kidney stones, and blockage of the kidney-filtering tubules with uric acid crystals, leading to kidney failure. On the other hand, some people may only develop elevated blood uric acid levels (hyperuricemia) without having manifestations of gout, such as arthritis or kidney problems. The state of elevated levels of uric acid in the blood without symptoms is referred to as asymptomatic hyperuricemia. Asymptomatic hyperuricemia is considered a precursor state to the development of gout. The term goutrefers the disease that is caused by an overload of uric acid in the body, resulting in painful arthritic attacks and deposits of lumps of uric acid crystals in body tissues.



 Gout how it develop

Gouty arthritis is typically an extremely painful attack with a rapid onset of joint inflammation. The joint inflammation is precipitated by deposits of uric acid crystals in the joint fluid (synovial fluid) and joint lining (synovial lining). Intense joint inflammation occurs as the immune system reacts, causing white blood cells to engulf the uric acid crystals and chemical messengers of inflammation to be released, leading to pain, heat, and redness of the joint tissues. As gout progresses, the attacks of gouty arthritis typically occur more frequently and often in additional joints.


 While an elevated blood level of uric acid may indicate an increased risk of gout, the relationship between hyperuricemia and gout is unclear. Many patients with hyperuricemia do not develop gout (asymptomatic hyperuricemia), while some patients with repeated gout attacks have normal or low blood uric acid levels. In fact, the blood level of uric acid often lowers during an acute attack of gout. Among the male population in the United States, approximately 10% have hyperuricemia. However, only a small portion of those with hyperuricemia will actually develop gout.


In addition to an inherited abnormality in handling uric acid, other risk factors for developing gout include obesity, excessive weight gain (especially in youth), moderate to heavy alcohol high blood pressure, and abnormal kidney function. Certain drugs, such as thiazide diuretics ( hydrochlorothiazide cl[Dyazide]), low-dose aspirin niacin cyclosporine tuberculosis pyrazinamide ethambutol, and others can also cause elevated uric acid levels in the blood and lead to gout. Furthermore, certain diseases lead to excessive production of uric acid in the body. Examples of these diseases include leukemias lymphomas, and hemoglobin disorders.

Interestingly, a recent study demonstrated an increased prevalence of abnormally low thyroid hormone levels (Hypothyroidism) in patients with gout.

In patients at risk of developing gout, certain conditions can precipitate acute attacks of gout. These conditions include dehydration, injury to the joint,fever, excessive eating, heavy alcohol intake, and recent surgery. Gout attacks triggered by recent surgery are probably related to changes in the body-fluid balance as patients temporarily discontinue normal oral fluid intake in preparation for and after their operation



Causes of Gout(uric acid)

Sudden, intense pain in a joint, typically the big toe or ankle, sometimes the knee, hand or wrist. Gout may also affect elbows, knees, ankles, wrists or small joints of the hands and feet.

  • Swelling, inflammation and a feeling that the joint is very hot
  • Extreme tenderness of the joint to even the lightest touch
  • Red or purple skin around the joint
  • In extreme cases alternating chills and fever. Low-grade fever may also be present.If not treated properly leads tp typhoid fever.
  • With recurring attacks soft fleshy growths may appear, called tophi, which are accumulations of uric acid crystals.


Over time gout attacks may occur more frequently, involve more joints, have more severe symptoms and last longer. Patients with longstanding hyperuricemia (high levels of uric acid in blood) can have uric acid crystal deposits called tophi in other tissues as well, e.g. the helix of the ear.


Symptoms of Gout(uric acid)

·       Hereditary

·       Improper function of kidney which results in decreased excretion of urates in urine.

·       Reaction to alcohol. Reaction to certain drugs, including antibiotics.

·       Enzyme deficiencies.

·       Lead poisoning.

·       Disorder is often associated with an injury or surgical procedure.

·       Highly proteinous diet.

·       Unidentified causes—Idiopathic causes.

·       Starvation—diminished renal excretion of uric acid.

·       Psoriasis—due to over production of uric acid.

·       Toxaemia of pregnancy—due to diminished excretion of uric acid. May also occur in some cases of tumors or cancers.

Location of gout

The different types of Gout(uric acid)

Gout has four distinct stages:

Asymptomatic: High levels of Uric acid in blood but no joint complaints

Acute phase: Acute complaints described above occur for a brief period

Intercritical phase: There is no pain or swelling of joints in this phase, the patient is relatively symptom-free.

Chronic: Gout attacks may become frequent during this phase and the condition may affect many joints at a time (polyarticular). Tophi formation may also be seen.

Stages of Uric acid

Homoeopathic Treatment for Cure of Uric Acid

Homeopathy offers a wider range of options than Conventional medicine. Constitutional Homeopathic treatment with the management of an experienced and professional Homeopath is an excellent choice for Gout cure.Homeopathic approach to Gout treatment is more of a totalistic approach. 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. Homeopathy is very strongly suggested for the treatment of Gout

The Constitutional approach of Homeopathy, which considers mind and body together as one, bestows a lot of significance to emotions, and believes that emotional factors are vital in the development of most of the diseases, including Gout. It can even be the cause of Gout. Heredity plays an important role in Gout. However, a study conducted at the Stanford University School of Medicine, suggested that emotions can overcome genetics. The study showed that even those who are genetically predisposed to Gout can avoid the disease by staying emotionally healthy. If you are at risk for Gout, you can avoid getting the disease if you stay in good condition psychologically.

In conclusion, for every patient suffering from Gout Classical Homeopathy treatment must be given a serious consideration for long term and lasting relief.

diet for uric acid

Dietary changes can help reduce uric acid levels in the blood. Since purine chemicals are converted by the body into uric acid, purine-rich foods are avoided. Examples of foods rich in purines include shellfish and organ meats such as liver, brains, kidneys, and sweetbreads. Researchers have reported, in general, that meat or seafood consumption increases the risk of gout attacks, while dairy food consumption seemed to reduce the risk. Protein intake or purine-rich vegetable consumption was not associated with an increased risk of gout. Total alcohol intake was strongly associated with an increased risk of gout (beer and liquor were particularly strong factors). Fructose from the corn syrup in soft drinks also increases the risk of gout.

Weight reduction can be helpful in lowering the risk of recurrent attacks of gout. This is best accomplished by reducing dietary fat and calorie intake, combined with a regular aerobic exercise program

  •              Get at least eight hours of sleep a night.
  •              Eat a well nutritious diet that gives you more energy and makes you generally feel better.
  •              Eat several small meals during the day to keep a steady supply of protein and carbohydrate available for proper muscle function.
  •              Maintain a healthy lifestyle.
  •              Exercising regularly.
  •              Make changes at work
  •              Pace yourself.
  •              Take hot baths or showers to soothe soreness, increase circulation, and relieve stiffness.
  •              Cut back on caffeine, alcohol, and sugar, which often cause fatigue. 

Hence, to end the pain and suffering of Acid Reflux, enjoy a perfect night’s sleep again and also eat anything you crave consider Homeopathy.
