Ayurvedic view of high uric acid and gout
With the same diet, there are people with different levels of uric acid and who are also differently susceptible to gout. In Ayurveda, this can be explained by the teaching of the different constitution types (Dosha).
Pitta people are much more prone to the increased formation of uric acid in their metabolism. The usually particularly strong hunger for meat, fish and sour foods is also favored.
When you are under stress, you increasingly resort to finished products. Eating uncontrollably between meals and a sumptuous, late dinner after 6 p.m. and the reward with a few glasses of alcohol also contribute significantly to the formation of uric acid.
Gout also occurs due to the additional strong influence of Vata (cold, dehydration) in tissues with poorer blood circulation, as the uric acid crystallizes. Ayurvedic, holistic therapy is possible (vata rakta).
