Gout is inflammation caused in the joints which happens when the uric acid content in the body rises. Uric acid needs to be properly excreted from the body and the kidneys are responsible for this function. In gout, most commonly the kidneys malfunction, leading to an excess of uric acid. Gout can lead to chronic arthritis and osteoarthritis if not treated properly. Men are the most common victims of gout and obesity, smoking and drinking, excessive intake of spicy food and high blood pressure are the common triggers for gout.
The Sanskrit name for gout is vata rakta rog which literally translates into disease of the wind and blood. According to ayurveda, gout is a result of the imbalance of the vata dosha which upsets the blood circulation of the body and the best way to treat it is by rebalancing the dosha.
