Ease Gout Pain with Homeopathy Treatment
What are the Primary Symptoms of Gout Pain
Do you have pain in the big toe that feels like a ball of fire with each stride you take? Look out - it could be gout. Gout is one of the oldest and most common forms of arthritis. Its primary symptoms are sudden onset of pain with a sensitivity of the affected joints, most often the big toe. It may also be of the knee, ankle, foot, hand, wrist, and fingers. The sequence is distinctive - gout first begins with acute pain. As the condition progresses, the joints get inflamed, swollen, warm, and sensitive to touch. Long-term, uncontrolled gout can cause joint damage.

Gout often affects people who love rich food and alcohol. Nonetheless, it can affect all agegroups. The disorder occurs when there is too much uric acid in the blood, tissues, and urine. As a result, uric acid accumulates in the blood and tissues and forms gout.
Homeopathic treatment for Gout Pain
Homeopathic treatment is individualized. No two persons with gout have ever shown the same symptoms, because each is uniquely influenced in health and illness. This is the reason why each individual has been prescribed a different - homeopathic remedy that matches their symptoms. The homeopathic remedy Colchicum, for instance, is useful in gouty conditions of the big toe, accompanied by tummy problems. The pain touch or a movement. The pain tends to get worse at every change of weather, or in cold, damp weather, especially evening or night. Another equally useful remedy is Ledum Pal. It eases gouty pains that “shoot” through the foot, limbs, and joints primarily in the small joints relieved by cold applications.
Your homeopathic doctor will select remedies, according to the overall presentation of the problem, the individual's lifestyle, mental and emotional states, stress levels, diet, and family history. This provides more thanjust symptomatic relief in gout; it helps to eliminate the possibility of recurrent or potential pain. Homeopathy stimulates the body's internal resources; it restores balance, rather than control symptoms. It is also suggested that homeopathic medicines provide holistic support to the connective tissues, affected by excess deposition of uric acid, the cause of gout.
Is gout a painful condition?
The degree of gout pain varies. The pain in the big toe can be excruciating at first. The initial episode may be followed by a dull aching.
The discomforts, as well as swelling and other symptoms, are caused by the body's immune system launching a defense against uric acid crystals in the joints. This attack causes the release of molecules known as cytokines, which cause severe inflammation.
