Effective treatment of gout with folk methods

During an attack over inflamed joints, a tumor and cyanosis appear Gout is one of the oldest diseases on the planet, which is a consequence of metabolic disorders. The disease occurs due to the accumulation in the body of salts of uric acid, which form crystals in such tissues as tendons, cartilage, joints. Gout can affect any joints, regardless of their size and location: on the fingers and toes, joints of the knees, shoulders, elbows.

But especially often from this disease suffer the joints of the foot, which manifests itself in the form of painful cones on the thumbs. In order to treat traditional or traditional medical products was effective, first of all it is necessary to conduct a comprehensive survey of specialists. The disease can appear not only because of metabolic disorders, but also against other diseases - oncology, kidney failure, etc.

Symptoms and forms of the disease

Gout is usually characterized by the onset of inflammation in any joint. A person feels sudden sharp pain, fever in the joint, redness of the skin in this place. Often, such seizures are compared with the pain of fractures: the sensitivity of the affected joint is extremely high, the pain can arise even from the touch of clothes or bed linen.

As a rule, gout attacks happen at night and can last from 2 days to a week. With properly selected therapy, the inflammatory process can be eliminated within 1-2 days. The risk group includes, first of all, men aged 40-50 years, in women of this age category, the disease occurs 20 times less often.

Gout is highly likely to occur in people with high blood pressure, overweight, prone to eating large amounts of protein foods and alcoholic beverages.

Uric acid salts accumulate in the diseased joint and corrode the cartilaginous tissue

Uric acid salts accumulate in the diseased joint and corrode cartilage tissue

Modern medicine classifies gout as acute and chronic. Acute gout is the initial stage of the disease. At this first stage of the patient, sharp pains are excruciated.

The frequency of recurrence of seizures depends on the general condition of the body, as well as on the measures and means of treatment. Proper treatment at this stage allows, if not completely get rid of the disease, then significantly delay the timing of the next attack.

In chronic disease, pain in the affected joints can persecute a person for a long time, accompanied by a characteristic crunch during movement, stiffness and increased pain during exercise. The treatment of gout at this stage is often complicated by the damage to the kidneys, heart and other internal organs.

Diagnosis and traditional treatment of gout

Diagnosis of the disease on the basis of data obtained from laboratory studies, radiography, renal ultrasound and visual inspection. If you suspect a podagra, the therapist first checks the results of the ultrasound of internal organs and the radiography of the joints for the detection of gouty nodules in the subcutaneous tissue.

The most informative method of diagnosis is the analysis of the joint fluid. The presence in it of crystals of salts of uric acid allows to correctly determine the correct diagnosis and select the most effective methods of treatment. Gout refers to the type of diseases that need to be treated by a number of specialists: the therapist, nephrologist, rheumatologist, urologist.

Diclofenac is prescribed for the removal of inflammation Treatment of gout should necessarily be complex and consist not only in the elimination of recurring pain, but in changing the entire lifestyle of a person. Both folk methods of treatment and medication must be coordinated with the attending physician. To get rid of a disease like gout, you need a correction of many habits. We need a special diet, control of body weight, the use of appropriate medications, the treatment of folk remedies, increased level of motor activity, refusal of alcohol.

In addition, one should take into account that the disease may affect neighboring joints. Therefore, prevention and treatment must be treated with all seriousness, until the joints are irreversibly changed. Both folk and medicamentous treatment of gout is aimed at reducing the volume of uric acid in the body and its complete elimination, which prevents the formation of crystals. All medicines are divided into two groups: for relief of acute inflammatory processes and for preventive treatment during periods between attacks.

For the removal of pain and neutralization of inflammation, non-steroidal agents are usually prescribed:

  • indomethacin;
  • diclofenac;
  • is voltaren;
  • Naproxen.
The hormone Betamethasone for dealing with an acute attack of the disease In more serious cases, hormone medications are prescribed as single injections:
  • betamethasone;
  • methylprednisolone;
  • dexamethasone.

In periods between attacks, treatment with folk methods in combination with proper diet, joint gymnastics and rejection of bad habits is very effective. For the removal of acute pain, folk methods recommend the use of ice packs.

Use in the treatment of salt and iodine

Treatment of gout with folk methods includes the use of both external and internal remedies. Their action is aimed at the removal of inflammation, the normalization of metabolic processes and the removal of excess uric acid from the body.
Since it is necessary to treat gout all the way, it is not recommended to focus only on one joint healing. In any case, you should not allow a sharp decrease in weight, tk.this leads to an increase in the amount of uric acid in the body.

Coffee and tea must be replaced with medicinal herbal decoctions and alkaline mineral water. With the use of herbal infusions, unusual sensations in the bladder can arise - this is caused by the dissolution of salts that slightly irritates the mucous membrane of the internal organs.

Folk treatment of the disease with the help of external means is based on the use of generally available and inexpensive drugs. So, the use of iodine at the initial stage of the disease gives good results. The most effective folk remedy for iodine treatment of the joints of the feet, elbows and hands is a warm bath, which is done regularly in the evenings for 10 days. To prepare a tray in 3 liters of warm water, dissolve 2 tablespoons.soda and 10 drops of iodine. The patient's joint is heated in warm water for 10 minutes, after which it is wiped dry, iodized with 5% iodine and warmed with woolen cloth.

Traditional treatment of gout involves the preparation of iodine trituration: in 10 ml of iodine 5 tablets of conventional aspirin are dissolved. This mixture is smeared with sick joints before going to bed, then they are warmed with a woolen handkerchief, which is left until the morning. A similar course of treatment for gout is at least a week.

No less popular folk remedy is a compress made of vaseline and iodized salt.0.5 kg of salt is poured with water so that it covers a layer of salt, after which the mixture is boiled over low heat until the water is completely evaporated. The resulting precipitate is thoroughly mixed with 200 g of Vaseline or interior pork fat. The ointment is applied to a tissue flap and fixed in the area of ​​the affected joint for several hours.

Use of decoctions and infusions of herbs

Gout at the initial stage of development is treated with saturated chamomile broths. Chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties. This allows you to use decoctions of her flowers for the preparation of compresses and medicinal trays.

The most common folk remedy for gout is a decoction, consisting of an equal number of flowers of chamomile and black elderberry. Plants pour a small amount of hot water, bring to a boil and insist for about 10 minutes. In still hot liquid, wet the strip of tissue that fixes over the diseased joints.

Treatment of gout with internal means can not only relieve pain and improve metabolism, but also improve the body as a whole. Known popular means for successful treatment of gout, used inside. These are broths, infusions and juices of medicinal plants.

An ancient folk method of treatment recommends the use of infusion of chicory, boiled with steep boiling water. Chicory is able not only to effectively treat joint diseases, but also beneficial effect on the work of the heart and liver.

Another folk remedy is well combined with the need to adhere to dietary nutrition. Wheat porridge will help to get rid of salt crystals. It should be boiled on water with a small piece of high-quality butter.

To the same purposes serves and onion soup.2-3 uncleaned bulbs fill with a liter of filtered water and boil on low heat until ready. The broth is filtered and drunk daily before meals for 10-15 days.

Treatment with exotic folk methods

A rather unusual folk remedy has been used for a long time by the Primorye peoples to treat gout at any stage, to relieve pain in the feet, to remove heel spurs. The medicine is a compress made from 2 kg of fish scraps. Meat is separated from ridges, divided into 10 equal parts and cleaned into the freezer. Every day one part of the fish fillet is thawed before going to bed, the fish is placed on top of the diseased joint, it is well fixed and warmed with woolen cloth. The compress is left to act all night, the used fish is discarded in the morning. The course of treatment is designed for 10 days.

No less original folk method of treating gout is the use of contrasting temperatures. To do this, prepare two vessels: one - with very cold water, the other - with the grains of any cereal plants, filled with boiling water.

The joint is dipped for a few seconds in cold water, then immediately placed in a vessel with steamed grains. When the grain cools down, the joint is tied with a warm cloth to preserve heat. Treatment should be long - at least 2-3 months.

Salo is used for home therapy in parallel with traditional treatment An ancient folk remedy used to treat gout that affects the joints of the fingers, also takes a long time, but is no less effective than heating the grain. Unsalted lard is cut into small slices, laid on the diseased joints and rubbed until the slices become thin and small. For severe pain, it is recommended not only to rub the fat into the joints, but also to leave its small slices for the whole night, fixing with a bandage or plaster.
