Gout Pain Relief Through Ayurvedic Medicine

Gout pain relief is available not only through conventional western medicine, but also through alternative medicines such as the ancient form of ayurvedic medicine. In ayurvedic medicine, gout is referred to as vatrakta.

Vatrakta is indicated biochemically of:

An augmentation in the concentration level of serum urate.
Recurrent acute pain attacks within the joints, which may become persistent and chronic in nature.
Occurrence of monosodium urate mono hydrate crystals within the fluid spaces inside the joints at the time of an acute attack.

Ayurvedic gout pain relief is not a generalized form of treatment and is therefore not the same for everyone. The recommended treatments vary from person to patient depending on the physical and psychological health and status of the individual. However, there are certain single and compound formulations that are used for gout pain relief as well as to minimize other symptoms of the condition. Some of the more commonly used formulations are:

Guduchi
Manjisth
Punarnava
Yashtimadhu
Mahamanjishthadi kwath
Shilajitwadi vati
Panchitkta churna

Diet is very important to Ayurvedic gout pain relief methods, as everything that will increase the production of uric acid is to be eliminated from the diet. Foods that are considered to be purine-rich should therefore be avoided as they encourage uric acid production, these commonly include:

Yeasts
Legumes (peas, dried beans, lentils, etc)
Beer and other beverages containing alcohol
Oil-packed sardines, anchovies, roes from fish, herring
Organ meats (kidneys, liver, sweetbreads, etc)
Meat extracts (gravies, consomm├ęs, etc)

Foods that are often recommended during Ayurvedic gout pain relief treatments may include the following:

A dark berry such as cherries as they contain substances that act within the body to reduce levels of uric acid as well as minimize inflammation.
Tofu in place of meats.
Foods high in certain fatty acids (such as omega 3), for example, olive oil, flax oil, and certain nuts. These fatty acids contain important anti-inflammatory benefits.

Another level of gout pain relief in the ayurvedic style can include panchakarma, which can include either a form of massage using medicated oils or snehana therapies, which have shown very beneficial results when treating gout.

If you are considering ayurvedic treatments for gout pain relief, you should first make sure to speak to your doctor or another health professional in order to assess your unique health needs and determine whether ayurvedic medicine is the right choice for you.

You may find that there are also other treatments available for gout pain relief that may work better or in conjunction with ayurvedic methods. These may include techniques such as uric acid manipulation through the pH level of the body. The only way that you will be able to make this decision is by speaking to health practitioners and learning about the various techniques and treatments for gout sufferers.

    Kangen water is quite good as it is alkaline in nature.

    Cristals of Uric Acid in any joint will form in a higher rate if temperatures are low in the joint region, just like any other critalization process in nature. So, in this view, sleeping with good insulation on the feet joints (like a thick but not tight socks) can help decreasing the rate on the cristal formation process for those with a high level of UA in the blood, like me. In short, avoid letting hands and feet get a lower temperature overnight. This is one more tip among all others well disclosured at Lisa’s site.
