Before you choose the right treatment for you, it’s important to understand what options are available. A talk with your doctor may leave out some important options, so it’s important to be informed going into your visit. This article aims to explain every option you have, with some commentary on the pros and cons of each one for further discussion. Towards the end, we explore the newer, lifestyle based alternatives.
Uric acid production inhibitors
Scientifically known as xanthine oxidase inhibitors, these medications limit the amount of uric acid produced by the body. They help to reduce blood uric acid concentrations and reduce the overall risk of gout. Like all drugs, unintended side effects are a part of use. This particular class of drugs can produce side effects including rash, low blood volume, nausea, and reduced liver function.
Uric acid removal agents
Drugs can also help the kidneys to excrete uric acid from the body. On one hand, these medications can be effective at reducing blood uric acid levels. On the other hand, your urinary uric acid levels are increased, contributing to painful kidney stone formation. Other side effects include stomach pains and rashes.
As you can see from the above, medications are very likely to give side effects. The other potential issue with medications is, what happens when you stop usage? Do your blood uric acid levels go back to where they were before? Does the crystallization process in the joints continue, leading once again to red swelling and pains? Only you can answer these questions. And if you believe the answer is yes, then it’s worth looking into nature-based solutions stop uric acid accumulation in your body.
Nature Based Changes
In Okinawa, an island off the coast of Japan known for being the place with the longest life expectancy, gout is treated by tackling the source of imbalance in your body. After all, your body had previously been getting rid of uric acid effectively for decades, so all we need to do is to take it back to that state. The way this is done to providing the right stimulus for ‘rebooting’ the body’s waste removal process, and providing the right substances for this waste removal process to run efficiently. It’s the exact approach one would take when fixing any machine – only when it comes to our bodies are we so obsessed with masking the symptoms rather than fixing the root cause!
