I would like to share a recent successful treatment of acute gout with a specific homeopathic remedy.
This 53yr old male contacted me 2 weeks ago with a recurrence of acute gout in his right big toe. This had previously been successfully treated some years ago (2015) with the remedy Colchicum. This is the autumn crocus plant that medicine uses as its base to extract the alkaloid Colchicine, which is used to treat gout.
However he had tried taking the same remedy again with no effect. This case shows well the difference between homeopathy and allopathic medicine. In allopathy the same drug is repeated whenever an attack occurs in larger and larger doses, which risk side-effects such as allergies, hair loss, bone marrow suppression, peripheral neuritis etc
However in homeopathy each time an attack occurs it may be a different remedy needed as symptoms vary and causations vary. Gout is only the medical name. It gives us no real information.
This time I was consulted on the 25th January with symptoms of swollen, red, hot right toe with pain which was worse for any movement and touch. A lot of swelling which was extending to the whole foot.
I asked about the urine - i.e. colour and smell. The answer was clear - urine was darker and very strong-smelling. His wife said like "horses urine" i.e. very strong!
There is only one remedy that has produced this kind of urine in the provings as well as pain and swelling in the big right toe and it a remedy known for treating arthritis and gout: Benzoic-acid
This was given in a 200c potency. One dose. By the next day (26th) he reported almost immediate relief on the pain and toe flexibility. Swelling reduced and pain only intermittent. Able to put a shoe on his foot at last! Foot slightly "puffy" still. Prescription: Wait.
By the 31st toe and foot almost back to normal. No swelling or pain. Just some discolouration darker red.
This shows the successful treatment of a very painful acute without the use of heavy, potentially dangerous drugs. Using a KEYNOTES of the remedy - urine smelling like that of a horse and the right sided gout I was able to pinpoint the exact remedy.
Please see below the before and after pictures:
