Ayurveda is one of the traditional and most trustworthy therapeutic methods that have their roots in India. Many of us are not aware of its miraculous effects and take to the modern methods of curing their gout. One must not forget that Ayurveda has been our form of treatment since time immemorial.

It can be the best remedy for many of the diseases, provided we follow the medication religiously, and from a reliable Ayurvedic healthcare clinic. Among numerous other diseases cured by Ayurveda, gout is a disorder related to a uric-acid imbalance in the body.

Gout arises from the deposition of uric acid in the cartilages of the joints and causes inflammation of joints. It is a painful metabolic which can spread from the big toe to the ankles, knees, joints of hands and feet, the wrist, and elbow.

It occurs due to the improper metabolism of purines. Purines are very essential for the body as they form the base of the DNA. Metabolism of purines produces uric acid in the body. If the production of uric acid is high or if its excretion is low, uric acid level in the blood increases.

Persistent high levels of uric acid over a period of time causes the formation of Sodium urate (a sodium salt of uric acid) which crystallizes and gets deposited in joints resulting in inflammation of joints. These urate crystals are also called gout crystals.

Gout and Meniscus Tear

A meniscal tear is a tear in the meniscus, the cartilage which acts as a shock-absorbing structure in the knee. The knee joint is largely susceptible to gout, and there are plenty of other areas of the knee where gout crystals can be deposited.

The knee is the joint between the femur bone of your leg (the bone from the hips to the knees), and the tibia (A shin bone that runs down from the knees to the ankles). There are several gout-inviting spots at this joint such as meniscus cartilages, tendons, ligaments, other cartilage and bursae, the cushion sacks.

Parijatak Ayurveda and Gout

In Ayurveda, gout holds ‘vata’ as its main dosha, and it affects rakt dhatu. Vitiation (impairment) of Vata dosha and rakt dhatu is caused by increased intake of spicy, sour, heavy and penetrating foods.

The patients who follow the treatment protocol are able to prevent further attacks and prevent deterioration of their joint condition. A whole range of treatment is offered at the Parijatak clinic in Nagpur where with proper integration of Yoga as part of a holistic therapeutic approach.

In Ayurveda, it is called as ‘Vatarakta”. It mainly affects the small joints in the body. It is more common in men than females. In females, it occurs before the age of menopause.

It is the type of arthritis in which deposition of uric acid occurs in the cartilages of the joints. Gout first affects the big toe causing it to swell and become very painful. In the next stages, it spreads to the ankles, knees, joints of hands and feet, the wrist, and elbow.

It also causes swelling and inflammation of joints, swelling of muscle tendon and its covering(tenosynovitis), swelling of joint space (bursitis), fluid collection in a cavity (cellulitis) and kidney diseases like renal calculi.

Pseudogout is a form of arthritis characterized by sudden, painful swelling in one or more of the joints. These episodes can last for days or weeks. The most commonly affected joint is the knee.

Also called Calcium Pyrophosphate Deposition  Diseases, the common term “pseudogout” was coined for the conditions similar to gout. Both conditions are caused by crystal deposits within joints, although the type of crystal differs for each condition.

It isn’t clear why crystals form in the joints and cause pseudogout, but the risk increases with age.

Treatments can help relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

While the cause of rheumatoid arthritis is not clear, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. The underlying mechanism involves the body’s immune system attacking the joints. This results in inflammation and thickening of the joint capsule. It also affects the underlying bone and cartilage.The diagnosis is made mostly on the basis of a person’s signs and symptoms.
