Homeopathic Remedies For Gout Attacks

June 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 191

There are many types of arthritis with gout being the most painful type. Gout attacks happen when uric acid deposits accumulate in and around a body joint like the big toe. There are genetic factors that play a role in gout attacks but a person's diet and medications can have a great impact in the causing of gout attacks in both men and women. The homeopathic remedies can be helpful in relieving the painful joint and swelling during an attack of gout.

Homeopathy is a medicine society that believes in administering non-toxic treatments for many illnesses and diseases. This type of treatment can be used to relieve pain for many conditions. There are licensed doctors in the field of homeopathy that prescribe homeopathic remedies for gout attacks. So lets look at some homeopathic remedies for gout attacks and their use.

The herb Belladonna can be used for the sudden attack. It is also a good remedy for relieving the swelling, warm, and throbbing pain. The joint with gout may appear red and shiny. Touching the joint will result in a sharp intense pain.

Colchicum is known as a very effective homeopathic remedy for the attack of gout. It is a very good remedy for when the gout is in the big toe and when the affected area is red, swollen, and hot. Excruciating pain will occur when the area is touched or when you try to move it. The pain in the big toe even increases at night or when the weather changes.

Rhododendron and Ledum Palustre are also good homeopathic remedies when the big toe is affected with gout. Ledum Plaustre is good for pain throughout the leg which includes both the ankle and knee. When joints on the right side of the body are swollen and painful Rhododendron will provide relief. Rhododendron is also a good remedy when the pain is worse in the morning or after you have rested for a long period of time.

Other homeopathic remedies for treating gout attacks consist of Calcarea Fluorica, Arnica, Sulphur, Berberis Vulgaris, and Bryonia. Consult your homoeopathist about these remedies and their benefits. You could try treating yourself with some of these homeopathic remedies when you suffer from an attack of gout. But you may want to consult with your doctor for advice.

You want to carefully evaluate the remedy and match it to the symptoms to ensure you choose the right herb or plant remedy for your symptoms. For treating gout attacks yourself remember that a low potency of homeopathic remedies will be just fine. Make sure you carefully read the instructions for usage and before selecting and applying.
