homeopathic medicine for gout

Gout is an inflammatory joint disease that arises due to an increase in levels of the uric acid in the blood. Any joints in the body can be affected with gout, although the joint at the base of the great toe has a higher chance of developing the condition.

In some individuals excess levels also lead to the formation of kidney stones. Please remember not all who have high levels of uric acid, develop gout. Homeopathic medicine for gout helps relieve the symptoms and also reduce the associated swelling in the joints. These medicines can be a big boon for all those who suffer from high uric acid.

  1. Jodi Sheldon says:

    Hello Dr Sharma,
    I have had Gout with elevated uric acid level which is under control without symptoms with allopurinol 300mg daily. I’d like to avoid big pharma if possible. I will have lab work done in a couple weeks and again 3 months later. During that 3 month period, I’d like to try homeopathy remedies rather than allopurinol. I don’t know the appropriate way to do that kind of trial. When I initially had the symptoms and the diagnosis was made, my symptoms were pain and inflammation of the great toe. Your advice is welcome.
    Respectfully, Jodi Sheldon
