Did you know that Gout affects millions of people around the world? This condition is not fun so let’s take a look at how it can be prevented and managed more effectively.
Gout is a form of inflammatory arthritis that is caused by an elevated level of uric acid in the bloodstream. The high levels of uric acid can form needle-like crystals in the joint and cause sudden pain, tenderness and inflammation.
Uric acid is transported from the blood to the kidneys, and if the uric acid levels are normal then the kidneys can excrete the uric acid in the body. Elevated levels of uric acid can result in gout flares and chronic kidney disease if not managed properly. Gout occurs more commonly in people who consume foods that are high in purine levels as these foods contribute to higher levels of uric acid. Some of these foods include:
Hijama can be a very effective treatment for Gout, although it may not cure the condition it can really assist with reducing the pain and inflammation. Hijama is a process where suction cups are placed on areas of the skin and a small incision is made and blood is excreted in order to cleanse and detox the body from heavy metals and contaminants. Hijama also helps to improve blood circulation and reduce stagnation and pain.
Hijama can remove toxic substances from the blood which can assist patients suffering from Gout. If you are diagnosed with Gout, it is recommended to perform Hijama regularly and also make dietary and lifestyle changes.
