In Ayurveda, gout can be correlate to vatarakta, two variants are for this. As the main dosha involved is vata and it affects raktdhatu by a process known as (avarana). Vitiation (impairment) of vatadosha and raktdhatu is caused by increased intake of spicy, sour, salty, alkaline, heavy and penetrating foods. The impaired doshas travel through the channels of the body and get accumulated at the smaller joints causing damage to the tissues and bones of the joint resulting in vatarakt.Excessive anger, waking up late in the night, sleeping in the daytime, excessive traveling, trauma, overindulgence in physical exercises, excessive sexual activity and suppressing the natural urges of the body can also lead to gout. Ayurveda treatment for gout includes prevention of metabolic waste products, purification of entire body, advising proper diet and lifer style exercise.
