Yoga For Gout


Gout is a condition characterized by severe attacks of inflammation in single joints, which come on suddenly (acutely) and rapidly reach a peak of extremely severe pain and then subside. There are many methods of treating gout. Some of the home remedies you can try out for the gout patients are listed as follows:
1. Cherry Juice – They have anti-inflammatory properties and will not let uric acid to increase in the blood and also prevent it from accumulating in the joints which causes pain.
2. Water – Increasing the intake of water will flush out the excess uric acid through urine; this will also prevent the formation of kidney stones.
3. Charcoal Poultice – This is extremely helpful in case of gout. You need to make a paste by mixing charcoal and few tablespoons of flaxseed powder along with water. Apply this paste on the affected area where you have pain. After applying the paste cover it with plastic/cloth.

Having said few of the home remedies, I would like to mention Yoga as one of the best treatment for curing gout. Yoga, with its gentle asanas and pranayama can be good for gout patients. The postures and exercises can stretch muscles, loosen joints and improve circulation in the entire body. Controlled and steady movements are best for gout patients. Some of the asanas that are recommended for treating gout includes: Ekpadsahajhasta Bhujangasana, Hastashirasana, Januhastasana, Swastikasana, Makarasana, Pavanamuktasana and Tadasana. Patients can also try Vrikshasana, Trikonasana, Veerasana and Bhujangasana.
