Gout Ayurvedic treatment- Gout Herbal remedies

Gout Ayurvedic Treatment- Gout Herbal Remedies 

I think Gout is the problem which can easily be handled by simple herbs like Kishore guggul - 2 tablets thrice daily and Navkarshik Churna - 1 tablespoonful twice daily with warm water. Navkarshik Churna is a classical 1100 AD medicine described in ancient ayurvedic text- Chakradutt samhita. 

There are however some  bhasma formulations which are good for "Vaat-Rakt" ( Gout)  Gout is known as "Vaat-Rakt" in Ayurveda, but the herbs - Kishore Guggul and Navkarshik Churna are sufficient for mild cases of vaat-rakt. The "vaat" in the "rakta" causes pain and swellings around joints especially the toe joint and cause scorpion sting like severe pain, especially when someone gets up in the morning and puts his foot on the earth. The accumulated uric acid forms crystals and causes stinging pains in joints and there is redness, swelling and pain in joints. 

Gout is called Vaat-Rakt in Ayurveda - The following herbal formulations are recommended especially the Navkarshik churna which is a classical formulation ( described in ancient text Chakradutt samhita -1100 AD) and available at - 

Other Herbs 

The herb manjistha is a popular herb to be used in Gout and is found in Navkarshik Churna mentioned above. 1 teaspoonful twice daily of this powder is sufficient. It helps to get rid of the problem permanently.
Daruhaldi is another herb which is effective to reduce the uric acid levels and is present in this ancient ayurvedic formulation called -Navkarshik Churna. 

Another herb Giloy is excellent to cleanse the blood.  The Navkarshik Churna contains this herb also .

There are natural capsules called Joint aid Plus which can be given along with Navkarshik churna to reduce pain. The Navkarshik helps to eradicate the disease by cleansing the blood and it is a permanent solution. The natural analgesic effect is produced by the Joint aid plus without causing any side effects. 
If the gout patient takes these  2 capsules twice daily, the outcome will be excellent. These can be taken along with other herbs mentioned above

Punarnava is another wonderful herb. Puna means again and "nava" means new. It purifies the blood and gets rid of toxins. Punarnava  is used in this case along with Navkarshik and Joint aid plus.  It is an excellent combination of herbs to be used in this condition. It helps to reduce the uric acid levels quickly.
