Why it is so important not to start the disease

People suffering from this severe disease complain of intolerable joint pain. Why do they arise? Gout gets a boost for development, as soon as the exchange of purine substances is disrupted. Because of this failure, salts of uric acid cease to be actively excreted, and some of them are gradually deposited in the kidneys, cartilages, joints.

Gradually develops gouty arthritis. With time, deposits of uric acid salts increase, and as a result of the inflammatory process, cone-like growths( tophi) can form. Most often they occur on the hands and feet. By the way, it's not for nothing that "gout" from Ancient Greek is translated as "trap for feet".

The arthritic joint is deformed more and more, and if the disease is not seriously treated, the joint bag can completely collapse. And this is already very neglected arthritis, getting rid of which is extremely difficult, and it is better not to bring the joint to a catastrophic state. How to treat this complication? The only way out is a surgical operation for the implantation of an artificial joint.

Periods of remission often alternate with periods of exacerbation. This is the difference between gout: its symptoms are weakened, then intensified. The agonizing condition lasts about a week. Treatment is extremely necessary, otherwise attacks will appear more often. And each subsequent will be stronger than the previous one.

These products are banned

This can not be eaten!

Compliance with the rules of therapeutic nutrition significantly increases the therapeutic effect. There are even known cases when strict strict diet alone has significantly improved the quality of life of patients. This is due to the fact that dietary intake restricts the intake of purine substances, and their level in the body decreases.

In the treatment of gout, diet No. 6 is used. Its basic principles are simple:

  • should be given priority to low-calorie foods;
  • should be eaten regularly and fractional, 4-5 times a day;
  • it is important to drink plenty of fluids, about 3 liters with gout exacerbations and 1.5-2 liters during remission;
  • to get rid of extra pounds should be gradually, dropping no more than 1-2 kg per month;
  • categorically can neither overeat, nor starve.

So, how do you create a curative menu? It is necessary to give up food, in which there are many purine compounds. These are such food products and dishes as:

  • meat, fish and mushroom first dishes;
  • meat and fish of fatty varieties, by-products, sausages, animal fats;
  • any canned food, pickles, smoked products;
  • beans, mushrooms, sorrel, cauliflower, spinach;
  • fatty, sharp, salty cheeses;
  • chocolate, cocoa;
  • alcohol( primarily beer and wine), strong coffee and tea: they exacerbate joint pain;
  • spices, spices( except vinegar and bay leaves).
The minimum of salt in dishes

Eliminate salt from the

diet What does the diet limit? Strictly - consumption of table salt. Meat, fish can and should be, as it is a source of proteins. But only lean, not more than 300 grams per week and only in boiled, stewed or baked form.

Treatment of gout does not allow any fried second courses! From time to time, you can include in the diet boiled chicken eggs. In reasonable quantities, you need to eat bread, boiled potatoes, pasta.

You also need to consume more foods that activate the excretion of uric acid from the blood and prevent the deposition of its salts in the tissues. Treatment of gout at home should be done, including light vegetable and milk soups, various cereals, dairy products, fresh vegetables, especially eggplants, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes( limited), as well as garlic, walnuts, hazelnuts.

Of fruits, apples and citrus fruits are most useful: they reduce articular pain. Good and juices, but only freshly squeezed. Regularly drink alkaline mineral water: it speeds up the removal of purines from the body.

It is proved that the diet significantly facilitates the course of gout. Therefore, strict compliance with it is necessary in the complex treatment of this insidious disease.

Traditional methods of treatment of gout with iodine

How does the disease manifest itself?

A typical manifestation of the disease

To date, an integrated approach is used in the treatment of gout. It includes adherence to a special diet and taking medications. The action of these drugs is aimed at reducing pain during attacks and reducing the level of uric acid in the blood.

Along with traditional therapy, iodine gout treatment is widely used. A conventional iodine solution is used, sold in pharmacies. It is considered an effective means of traditional medicine, helping to fight this disease at the initial stage.

Iodine for gout: helps or not?

The use of iodine as a cure for gout has a lot of positive feedback from people who have experienced its beneficial effect on themselves. It is believed that iodine is able to penetrate deeply into the joints affected by gouty deposits and quench foci of inflammation, relieving the person of the painful symptoms of the disease. To strengthen the therapeutic effect, traditional healers and doctors recommend combining treatment with folk methods with medical therapy.

However, there are physicians who are skeptical of the claims about the possibility of curing gout with iodine. They believe that the relief of the patient's condition with the use of this drug is nothing more than a placebo effect. And he, as is known, is based on the person's belief in full recovery.

Despite the fact that a number of specialists oppose the use of iodine solution in the fight against gout, the benefits of this drug are quite appreciable. The successful outcome of treatment with iodine depends on how timely the patient was diagnosed with gout. If the disease in the patient is detected already in a neglected state, the iodine solution will be ineffective.

There are many recipes of folk medicine in which iodine is used. All methods of treating gout with this drug are recommended for external use. Before starting to use them, the patient needs to consult with his doctor.

Recipes with aspirin and iodine

Of them, a compress is made

Ingredients for compress

How to treat gout with iodine? To warm up the joints affected by deposits of uric acid salts, you can use a warming solution. Its main ingredients are iodine with aspirin( acetylsalicylic acid).To prepare a remedy, the patient will need:

  • iodine - 10 ml;
  • aspirin - 5 tablets.

Iodine is poured into a small glass container. Tablets are ground to a powdery state and added to the beaker. Aspirin should completely dissolve in iodine and discolor it. After the healing fluid brightens, it can be used for therapeutic purposes.

The solution should be lubricated with inflamed joints every day before going to bed, after which the treated areas are warmed( wear warm socks and gloves on their hands).Iodine-aspirin solution deeply warms the sites affected by gouty deposits( tofus) and promotes the dissolution of salts. It is left on the skin for the whole night, and in the morning it is washed off with warm water and soap. The procedure is repeated until the tofus disappears completely.

In the treatment of gout with iodine and aspirin, you can use another recipe for which you will need:

  • iodine - 10 ml;
  • aspirin - 2 tablets;
  • freshly squeezed juice of one lemon.

Powdered acetylsalicylic acid tablets are mixed with iodine, as in the previous recipe. Then add lemon juice to them. The resulting solution is treated with gout deposits, after which they are wrapped and left in the warmth for the whole night.

The procedure is done for three consecutive days, after which it is recommended to resort to a seven-day break and repeat everything again. The course of treatment is carried out until the cones disappear completely.

Foot baths and home-made ointments

Foot baths will help to remove an acute attack

For gouty deposits on the legs, it is recommended to make warm salt baths with the addition of iodine. To prepare one bath you will need:

  • hot water( 40 degrees) - 2 liters;
  • large salt - 4 tbsp.spoons;
  • iodine - 20 drops.

The legs are lowered into a prepared aqueous solution for half an hour. The procedure should be repeated daily for 2 weeks. Such a bath reduces the soreness of tofusi and contributes to their gradual reduction.

You can prepare a bath and according to another recipe. For one procedure it is necessary to take:

  • hot water - 2 l;
  • baking soda - 2 teaspoons;
  • iodine - 10 drops.

Soda and iodine are dissolved in water and inflamed joints are dipped into the resulting liquid. The procedure time is 20 minutes. After it, the cones on the legs will soften and stop ache. The course of treatment is 2 weeks, then it is recommended to take a break for 10 days.

If gouty cones are too painful, they should be lubricated with a solution prepared from:

  • iodine;
  • triple cologne;
  • ammonia.

All components taken in equal proportions are mixed, placed in a glass container and left in a dark place for 48 hours. A ready solution is applied to the inflamed joints 3 times a day. This is done until the pain completely disappears.

Treatment of gout with folk remedies can be done with iodized salt. It is able to remove the deposits of uric acid salts no worse than iodine. An effective remedy for gouty cones on the legs and hands is a homemade ointment. It will require:

  • iodized salt - 500 g;
  • Vaseline - 200 g;
  • water - 0.5 liter.

The salt is placed in a saucepan, poured with water and, stirring constantly, bring the solution to a boil. Boil, and when the liquid evaporates, the iodized salt is cooled and mixed with petroleum jelly. From the received ointment it is recommended to make compresses on the tofusov area: a thick layer of the product is applied to a sore spot, covered with a piece of woolen fabric and bandaged. The compress should be left on the body for the whole night. The procedure promotes resorption of painful cones. Repeat it until the salt formations are reduced.

Although an iodine solution is an innocuous preparation, it is necessary to apply it in the treatment of gout only with the permission of a doctor. It should not be forgotten that saline deposits in the periarticular tissues are the consequences of an overabundance of uric acid in the blood. To normalize the level of uric acid and the removal of its salts from the body of treatment with folk medicine is not enough.

To get rid of gout, you need a complex therapy, which includes taking medications, compliance with diet and normal drinking regimen. The use of recipes of traditional medicine should be considered only as an auxiliary method that accelerates recovery.
