Homeopathic Treatment of Gouty Arthritis Patient
It is a metabolic disease, marked by uric acid deposits in the joints, which causes painful arthritis (redness and swelling) in many joints, especially of the feet and legs.
Gout is caused by a defect in metabolism that results in an overproduction of uric acid , or a reduced ability of the kidney to eliminate uric acid. The pain frequently starts during the night and is often described as throbbing, crushing, or excruciating. The joint appears infected with signs of warmth, redness, and tenderness.
1) Joint pain-continuous pain in many joints
2) Large crystal deposits (tophi) in joints, tendons, and soft tissue which make every movement very difficult.
3) In later stage patient is unable to perform daily activity.
TESTS TO BE DONE:-
Tests that indicate gouty arthritis include:
1) Synovial fluid analysis that detects uric acid crystals
2) Uric acid level that is elevated
3) Joint X-rays that show damage in structure.
CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT:- In this mode of treatment, it is treated by using uricosuric drugs which only decreases the serum uric acid levels but never treat the overproduction of uric acid. Unless and until this default process is not corrected, the increase serum uric acid level cannot be brought down permanently. There is a need to remove the cause which is never given importance by this mode of treatment. They always emphasis on the results (elevated uric acid) never try to correct the process.
That is why disease relapses after short time of relief. You will be better till you take medicine, as soon as you stop taking these drugs the disease will reappear in worst state than before. THIS IS NOT THE CURE BUT JUST MANAGEMENT OF DISEASE.
In modern science homoeopathy, the emphasis is given to remove the cause, the effect will disappear automatically. Homoeopathic science strictly believe that all the diseases occur with the permission of individual genetic code so if there is overproduction or defect in removal of uric acid by the kidney, it means that something is wrong with the message coming out from genetic code. A genetic constitutional similimum treats the disease genetically.
After the right homoeopathic medicine, the internal system starts working normally which results in normal production of uric acid. Hence maintain the adequate amount of serum uric acid level.
