It affects only those who are leading sedentary life style and their liver becomes sluggish and is not able to process the toxins like uric acid and it accumulates in the body.
Another reason for Gout is not consuming too many bitters.. bitter herbs and vegetables like gourds, bitter gourd, long gourd, round gourd, zucchini, (Tori) , Turnips, Carrots,
Gout is known as “Vaat – Rakt” in Ayurveda. It is caused by vitiation of “Vata” ( Air element) and impurities in blood. Vata gets vitiated by too much mental stress, anxiety, late night sleep, irregular food habits, non-use of Ghee in food, uncooked or frozen , processed and packaged food, dry food, fast food causes vata imbalance and holding of natural urges like not going to pass stool when there is a natural urge to evacuate. Not going to pass the urine and holding other natural urges and feelings leads to Vata imbalance.
Similarly eating food high in proteins, eating food which has properties to disturb balance of “Fire Element” cause accumulation of impurities in blood (Rakt ). Chilllies, Alcohol, Beer, Curd, Heavy greasy food, Non-Veg diet, too much Spicy food, Eating without hunger and binge drinking and eating leads to accumulation of toxins in the blood and causes “fire element imbalance” .
The blood becomes impure and that’s why the disease is named as “Vaat-Rakt”.
