Gout is a genetic or acquired disorder of uric acid metabolism that leads to hyperuricemia and consequent acute and chronic arthritis. The recurrent but transient attacks of acute arthritis are triggered by the precipitation into the joints of monosodium urate (MSU) crystals from super saturated body fluids. MSU crystals are deposited in and around the joints as well as other tissues, creating inflammatory foci known as tophi, the morphologic hallmark of gout. Whatever its pathophysiology, the essential biochemical requirement for the development of clinical gout is hyperuricemia.

Ayurveda approach in Gout:
According to Ayurveda, Gout can be correlated with Vatarakta. It is another disorder of the metabolism which has afflicted mankind since the dawn of recorded history.
The disorder is associated with the presence of large amounts of uric acid in the blood, manifesting itself by inflammation of the joints, with deposition therein of urate of soda, and also by morbid changes in various important organs.
Uric acid is formed during the metabolism of proteins and is excreted through the kidneys. The amount of uric acid found in patients suffering from gout is always above the normal level, that is, more than 0.5mg/100 ml.
It is a condition similar to arthritis and many of the remedial measures are the same. The big toe is characteristically involved, become swollen and very painful. The term 'Vatarakta' denotes Vata in blood. So, treatment is to reduce Vata and cleanse the blood.
Causes and Symptoms:
Gout is to a marked degree, hereditary. In 50 to 80% of the cases of gout, family history is present. It attacks sedentary people more readily than the active. Inadequate exercise, a rich diet, habitual overindulgence in animal foods and rich dishes, and alcohol are important precipitating factors, even though vegetarians are not immune to the disease. It is more common in middle age, and men are more susceptible to it than women, among whom the disorder may appear after menopause.
An attack of gout may appear without warning or there may be premonitory symptoms like low appetite, flatulence, uneasiness in the right side of the region of the liver, and irritation in the urinary organs. Various forms of nervous disturbances are also present in the form of extreme irritation, numbness and coldness in the limbs. On the night of the attack, the patient retires to rest apparently quite well, but in the morning he is awakened by a painful feeling in the foot, most commonly in the big toe or the instep of the heel. With the pain, there is often a distinctive shivering and high temperature. The pain soon becomes agonizing.
The big toe is generally inflamed and is of deep red color. There may also be pitting over the surface it is pressed. The patient is extremely uncomfortable during the attack, which is followed by dyspepsia, thirst, constipation and cramps in the limbs. If the disease is left untreated, it may spread to the other joints. A serious complication of the gout is the presence of kidney stones containing uric acid. In some cases, the kidneys become damaged and do not function properly.
The chief cause of gout is the formation of uric acid crystals in the joints, skin and kidneys. Uric acid is an end product of the body's chemical processes. Those affected by gout have a higher level of uric acid in the blood than the normal, due to either formation of increased amounts or reduced amounts of acid being passed out by the kidneys in the urine. This uric acid usually remains dissolved in the blood. But when the blood becomes too full of it, the uric acid forms needle-shaped crystals in the joints which bring about attack of gout. Other causes of this disease are heredity, alcoholic drinks, regular eating of foods rich in protein and carbohydrates, lack of proper exercise and stress.
Person exposed to the influence of lead poisoning such as plumbers, are apt to suffer from gout. Attacks of the disease are readily excited by exposure to cold, disorders of indigestion, fatigue and injuries to particular joints. Our blood is chiefly alkaline and anything that tends to produce acidity should be avoided.
According to Ayurveda, the disease is the result of the vitiation of Vata. Intake of mutually contradictory foods and failure of the body to excrete the wastes from the body ultimately leads to a serious case of gout.
Diet and other Regimen:
Fried foods, sour substances like curds, fatty substances, and alcohol should be avoided. Also avoid meat, sugars, jellies, pastries, mushrooms, pickles and acid fruits. Old rice, wheat, moong dhal, meat soup, garlic, onions, bitter gourd and papaya are helpful in this condition.

The patient should breathe fresh air, so that oxygen is available to him in larger quantities cleansing his blood of poisonous humors. The gout patient should improve his water intake to produce more urine. Hot fomentation should be undertaken to reduce the pain in the joints. Also spending some hours in the sun is good.
