For those looking for alleviation from the pain caused by gout, turning to homeopathic remedies is often necessary, since the anti-inflammatory drugs given by doctors often only does very little to help ease the suffering, though that is not to say they are not necessary.
Homeopathic remedies often come in to the rescue and to the gratitude of many who have suffered from gout. Part of the reason why homeopathic remedies work so well is because they stimulate the body in a natural way, causing it to produce natural solutions to the unnatural buildup of uric acid, the cause of gout.
By injecting a little disease in the body, in just the right amounts, you get it started on a controlled reaction that will work to ease the inflammation and help the body become more alkaline, thus neutralizing the excess uric acid in the bloodstream.
Traditional painkillers, though most likely easily accessible, are not remedies for gout and can even make the problem worse. In order to properly treat the illness, the particular needs of a patient should be considered, and that is exactly what homeopathic remedies do.
With the right guidance, these are some of the remedies that can be prescribed:
This is best prescribed during the first 24 hours of the onset of gout symptoms as these are these is the most intense moments of an acute attack. This eases with swelling, which will also feel like a burn at this point,
Usually targeting gout at a joint somewhere in the legs, this is best taken to resolve the stiffness in the joint, as is common with gout in general. Naturally, unlike colchicum, this is best taken during the length of the gout attack as opposed to the beginning as it resolves issues experienced throughout the number of days the attack lasts.
For those looking to relieve gout through getting rid of the main cause, uric acid, then this is the way to go. Urtica urens is, like all homeopathic remedies, prescribed for particular conditions in which gout affects the upper limbs of the body.
These are just three of many homeopathic products that can be taken to relieve a patient from the symptoms and get them on the path to recovery. Consultation with a professional in the relevant field should be made to find out which of the over dozen or so products are more suitable for your particular case.
While resorting to professional help is the preferential choice when it comes to treating gout, it is not the only choice, and certain remedies can be made from the comfort and convenience of your home.
Mixing an ounce of baking soda in eight ounces of water is a proven remedy that works to counter the effects of a gout attack. This is something most people have ready in their homes and is an easy, affordable mix.
Mixing the same amount of apple cider in the same amount of water is also proven to help counter gout in much the same way. Again, it is easily accessible and affordable.
Cherries and berries and pretty much every other fruit that rhymes with those are good in preventing acid from building up in the bloodstream and work as a great natural remedy.
Managing your diet and refraining from unhealthy food and drinks works as much as any medication in both easing the pain as much as preventing it from occurring in the first place. Alcohol, caffeine, and purine-rich foods such as shellfish are some examples of what should be avoided.
Finally, drink lots of water.
There is a lot out there on how to treat gout. Just from the few examples given, it would seem difficult to choose what option to go with, and that is why the right guidance is needed.
With the help of a professional and proven homeopath, one can receive the treatment they need through analyzing one’s particular condition and the remedy that best goes with it.
