 Gout: A metabolic Disease

Gout is a disease that results from an overload of uric acid in the body. This overload of uric acid leads to the formation of tiny crystals of urate that deposit in tissues of the body, especially the joints. 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 kidney stones(nephrolithiasis).

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 gout refers 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.

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.

Who is affected by gout?

Approximately 5 million people  alone in the United States suffer from gout. (Did you know that none other than Benjamin Franklin had terribly painful gouty arthritis?) Gout is nine times more common in men than in women. It predominantly attacks males after puberty, with a peak age of 75. In women, gout attacks usually occur after menopause.

Causes Of Gout

  • Deposition of uric acid crystals in the joints and body tissues
  • Excessive intake of alcohol
  • Heredity factors
  • Foods rich in protein and carbohydrates
  • High blood pressure
  • Stress
  • Certain foods, such as organ meats, anchovies, herring, asparagus, mushrooms, etc
  • Obesity
  • Kidney failure
  • Mental strain
  • Lack of physical exercise

Symptoms Of Gout

  • Severe pain in joints, knees, toes, etc
  • Swelling in the joints
  • Extreme tenderness in the joints
  • Shiny, reddish or purplish skin around joints
  • Intense joint pain
  • Fever
  • Inflammation and redness around joints
  • Loss of appetite
  • Lack of sleep
  • Kidney stone
  • Failure of the kidney
  • Dehydration

Uric acid levels increase at puberty in men and at menopause in women, so men first develop gout at an earlier age (after puberty) than do women (aftermenopause). Gout in premenopausal women is distinctly unusual.

So keep these all things in your mind when you are effected by this disease and here is the Ayurvedic Treatment for Gout

If you have some queries about Gout you can contact us at anytime. 

Generally gout is considered as Vata Rakta by Ayurvedic scholars, till the date but it doesn't seem that much practical and applicable when it comes to the pathophysiology of the Gout. According to Ayurveda Vata Rakta is a condition where different parts of the body specially the small joints are effected by the poor blood supply of the blood and this seems more a disease of the Arteries. The exact relation of the Vata Rakta is with the SLE and other autoimmune disease like Necrosis of Head of Femur etc.
The main thing in Gout is the improper/ extra production of the Gout causing Uric Acid. This is the main thing what happens in the Gout so this is more a metabolic disease not a disease of the Blood vessels. Keeping in this view we treat patients of Gout at our different Ayurvedic Centers. and we have the best results by doing so.
There is a big difference in approach of treatment of the Gout Ayurvedically and according to modern sciences. According to modern sciences the main treatment of the Gout is the neutralization of the Uric Acid by giving some of the Antagonists. This might be a good approach to reduce the amount of the Uric Acid inside the body but not the treatment. Because Uric Acid is a main cause of pains and deformities according to the Pathology of the Gout but not the root cause. Root cause of the Gout is the faulty production of the Uric Acid by the body, which leads to the increased levels of the Uric Acid. So the best treatment of the Gout is that where we can manage the normal levels of the Uric Acid by removing all the causes involved in process of the Protein Metabolism. 
We all know that Uric Acid is produced by the faulty metabolism of the Proteins. For this what we need is the proper management of the Protein Metabolism, so that there won't be excessive production of the Uric Acid inside the body and blood levels of the Uric Acid will be with in normal limits. For this Ayurveda has told a lot of herbs which work directly on the deeper levels of the metabolism. These are- Guduchi (Tinospora Cordifolia), Manjistha (Rubia Cordifolia), Haridra (Curcuma longa), Guggulu (Commiphora myrrh). These are few of the herbs which are told to be working on the deeper levels of the metabolism. We have brought all these in concentrated form and filled in capsules for all of our patients. These all work on the metabolism of the proteins and maintains the human body properly. These capsules are Ayur-Gout Capsules and are meant to give you complete solution for your pains in joints. 
These capsules contains the following- 
Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia)
Manjistha (Rubia Cordifolia)
Haridra (Curucuma longa)
Guggulu (Commiphora myrrh)
Hingu (Ferula asfetida) 
Maricha (Piper nigrum) etc. 

Dosages of these capsules are- Two capsules thrice or twice daily. In acute condition one should take two capsules three times daily for a month and for management these should be taken two capsules twice daily for two months.

So for complete treatment you will need about four hundred twenty capsules. 

Detox Herbal Tea should be taken along with these capsules, so that all the uric acid which is deposited inside your body will be removed completely and you can maintain your health easily for years.

Diet Regulations for Gout
Yoga for Gout 
 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, consommés, etc)

They should also not consume any vegetables that grow below the ground. Mention may be made of potato, radish and carrot etc.

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

- Dark skinned berries such as cherries as they contain substances that act within the body to reduce levels of uric acid as well as minimize inflammation.

- To eat 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 properties that help to ease inflammation in the joints.


Don't do any hard exercises or activities. Nor should such a person be a couch potato. A patient suffering from Gout must not take cold baths. Avoid getting exposed to rain or cold wind
