There is a fairly good chance that you know someone or maybe have a loved one who is suffering from the painful arthritic health condition known as gout. And in case you are one of the sufferers yourself, we really don’t need to go into explaining just how painful and frustrating this disease can become. However, there are ways to cure the issue with the help of a professional naturopath in Melbourne. But before we move onto explaining how, let’s first explore what gout really is and how it affects the human body.
The issue is caused by an excess of uric acid in the body. Uric acid in the bloodstream causes crystals to develop on the cartilage of tendons, joints, and other tissue. These tissues then get inflamed and often cause serious, sudden pain. While in most cases, the pain predominantly presents itself in the patient’s feet (particularly the big toe), gout also affects other joints like the ankles, knees, wrists, fingers, and elbows.
While this problem case be treated to certain extent using western medicine, gout natural remedies offer a much more promising, safe, effective and non-dependency-inducing treatment. Naturopaths in Melbourne recommend a variety of dietary and lifestyle changes for the same. Consumption of vitamin C-rich foods, cherries, apple cider vinegar, beet juice and more have been known to help with the condition. At the same time, one will have to drink plenty of water throughout the day, avoid alcohol, coffee, sodas and other diuretics and take up certain exercises to regain health.
