A high uric acid level (hyperuricemia) is an excess of uric acid in the blood and can be caused, when the body either produces too much uric acid or the kidneys excrete too little uric acid. Uric acid is produced from the breakdown of body's cells and of purine, a substance found in many foods. It passes through the kidneys, where most of it leaves your body when you urinate.
Risk factors that may cause a high uric acid level in the blood include diuretic medications, drinking too much alcohol, heredity, hormonal disorders, obesity, psoriasis, purine-rich foods, metabolic disorders, a renal insufficiency and other medical conditions (high blood pressure, diabetes, high levels of fat and cholesterol in the blood, arteriosclerosis).
A high uric acid level can cause kidney stones, chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure and heart disease. Excessive amounts of uric acid can also cause solid crystals. These uric acid crystals can build up in the joints and nearby tissues, forming sharp, needle-like urate crystals, hard lumpy deposits called tophi and result in painful attacks of gout.
Gout, a form of arthritis, can lead to joint damage and is characterized by sudden onset of severe pain attacks, heat, redness, swelling and inflammation in and around the joint. Gout usually affects the large joint of the big toe, but it can also occur in the feet, ankles, knees, hands and wrists.
In this naturopathic adviser, I will give you recommendations how to treat and prevent hyperuricemia and gout with homeopathy, Schuessler salts (also named cell salts, tissue salts, biochemistry) and herbal tinctures. I will present you the most proven homeopathic remedies and Schuessler salts, including the appropriate potency and dosage.
Homeopathy works holistically and treats the whole body, spirit and soul. I wish you much success in your treatment, joy of life and especially your health. You will find more information about health in my other ebooks.
