Homeopathic Remedies For Gout Attacks
There are many types of arthritis, with gout being the most painful. Gout attacks occur when uric acid deposits build up in and around a body joint, such as the big toe. There are genetic factors that play a role in gout attacks, but a person’s diet and medication can have a major impact on the development of gout attacks in both men and women. The homeopathic remedies can be helpful in relieving the painful joint and swelling during a gout attack.
Homeopathy is a medical society that believes in administering non-toxic treatments for many diseases and illnesses. This type of treatment can be used to relieve pain in many conditions. There are licensed doctors in the field of homeopathy who prescribe homeopathic remedies for gout attacks. So let’s look at some homeopathic remedies for gout attacks and how to use them.
The herb belladonna can be used for the sudden attack. It is also a good remedy for relieving swelling, warm and throbbing pain. The joint with gout may appear red and shiny. Touching the joint results in a sharp, intense pain.
Colchicum is known to be a very effective homeopathic remedy for gout attacks. It is a very good remedy for gout in the big toe and when the affected area is red, swollen and hot. Excruciating pain occurs when the area is touched or when you try to move it. At night or when the weather changes, the pain in the big toe even increases.
Rhododendron and Ledum Palustre are also good homeopathic remedies when the big toe is affected by gout. Ledum Plaustre is good for pain throughout the leg, which includes both the ankle and knee. Rhododendron provides relief for swollen and painful joints on the right side of the body. Rhododendron is also a good remedy when the pain intensifies in the morning or after a long rest.
Other homeopathic remedies used to treat gout attacks consist of Calcarea Fluorica, Arnica, Sulphur, Berberis Vulgaris and Bryonia. Ask your homeopath about these remedies and their benefits. You can try treating yourself with some of these homeopathic remedies when you are suffering from a gout attack. But you may want to ask your doctor for advice.
You should carefully evaluate the remedy and match it with the symptoms to ensure you are choosing the right herbal or herbal remedy for your symptoms. When treating gout attacks, remember that low potency homeopathic remedies are fine. Make sure you read the instructions for use carefully before choosing and applying it.
