The advice comes from Dr. Vasilka Yurukova, specialist in internal medicine, homeopath.

Eating and drinking are at the root of many ailments, especially in late fall and winter when the weather doesn't lend itself to much movement. They call gout the "royal" disease, precisely because of its relationship with diet. In the past, the rich could eat meat very often, unlike the poor. Alcohol, fatty fish, i.e. all those foods that contain a lot of purines are added to the meat. When these purines are broken down in the body, they turn into uric acid.


Gout is a disease caused by high levels of uric acid in the blood. There are 2 ways to reach the disease. The exchange of purines can also be a hereditary problem, when we have some enzyme defect, i.e. the body cannot break them down well. On the other hand, there is an opportunity to additionally get purines through food.

Gout - a male disease

It is considered to be a male disease. In women, it is only after menopause that uric acid levels increase.

Gout is noticed by the patient because it starts with pain. In the beginning, it begins with the accumulation of uric acid crystals, which begin to deform a person's hands and feet. They also begin to be deposited on the soft parts of the body, incl. and on the pendants of the ears.

When uric acid rises above a certain value in the body, severe pains and ...crises begin. Then the affected joint starts to hurt very badly and becomes very bright red.

Most often, the thumb turns red and starts to hurt, and it's good that it's like that, because that way the diagnosis can be made more easily. The pain can then move to another joint. There are also atypical cases when the pain starts in the wrist, knee, and this can confuse the doctor, who thinks that it is a completely different disease. Therefore, one of the first tests that should be done is for the levels of uric acid in the body.


Many people associate gout only with joint problems, which is not the case. If gout is not treated, the disease can damage the kidneys, kidney stones appear, it can even lead to kidney failure. The heart is also affected.

The problem with these people is that they really like to eat meat: morning, noon and night. Therefore, they should limit meat very much, especially red meat. In the beginning, even meat is stopped from consumption. Lower-fat dairy products should also be taken.

Useful tips:

1. To drink a lot of fluids, especially water, alkaline mineral water.

2. Homeopathy and Schussler (Mineral) salts, individually prescribed, are also recommended. Schussler's (mineral) salts 9 and 10 are prescribed. They reduce uric acid levels and achieve a more alkaline rather than acid balance in the body. In case of a crisis, traditional treatment is resorted to, and only when the pain subsides is Schussler's (Mineral) salt 3 added.

3. In very severe pain, the limb is placed in ice to relieve inflammation.

4. Drinking alcohol, especially beer, should be limited.

5. Juices sweetened with fructose, as well as carbonated drinks, should not be consumed. Better to replace it with water, lots of water!
