Gout and Ayurveda
According to Ayurveda Gout is called Vatta Rakta. It is said that when Vatta get vitiated it causes the vitiation of Rakta dhatu. In modern, when blood uric acid is raised. It is called gout.
It is normally more in men than women. A family history of gout is found in large number of people. Serum uric acid level more than 7mg/dl is suggestive of gout. According to Ayurveda small joint are involved. Vitiated Vatta when enter blood causes gout. Increase of uric acid is due to lesser excretion of uric acid by the kidney. Or it is due to overproduction of uric acid by metabolism.
In my view as an ayurvedic physician to increase the excretion of uric acid we have to take plenty of water daily.
