Painful, Recurrent Episodes Of Gout Cured With Homeopathy In Just 6 Months

53-years-old Mr. PMT (Patient identification number 30228) visited Life Force’s Mulund clinic on 5th November 2016 for the treatment of Gout.

He was suffering from gout for more than four years. His complaints started 4 years back with acute episodes of gout. During each acute episode, he used to get a swelling on left or right great toe with severe pain and redness on the affected area. The skin over the great toe used to turn shiny, and he could see the gout tophi under the skin. He used to feel feverish during each acute episode of gout. The pain used to be so severe that he could not wear his shoes. Earlier the frequency of acute attack of gout was once in six months, but in the last 6 months, he got around four acute episodes of gout. He was in distress due to the frequent episodes of pain, swelling, and redness of either of the great toe. He could not tolerate even the touch of clothes to the affected foot. His pain would aggravate while walking. The last episode was 10 days before visiting Life Force for which he took conventional treatment. Each episode would last for 3-4 days, but during the last episodes, pain remained for more than 10 days. The uric acid level was higher than normal range. He used to take conventional medicines that are tablet goutnil or tablet Zyloric for each acute episode.

Mr. PMT had associated complaints of psoriasis. He was not on any treatment for psoriasis as it was under control.

His father suffered with osteoarthritis of knees. His mother was hypertensive.

He would prefer vegetarian food. He would love to drink milk and eat dairy products. He used to sweat a lot in hot climate and could not tolerate heat in any form. He was working as the head of finance in one of the most popular groups of branded fabric and fashion companies. His wife was a professor in a senior college.

He was very passionate about his work and used to always follow the commitment in the work. He was the perfectionist, calm and composed personality with a very high endurance level. He had fear of water. He had very cordial relations at workplace.

Dr. Shah did analysis of the case in detail and prescribed Lycopodium 200 along with his research-based medicines.

On 26th December 2016, the patient mentioned one mild episode of gout. He suffered from pain, redness, and swelling of the left great toe which lasted for 2 days. He took conventional medicines for 2 days. During this episode, the intensity and duration of suffering were very less as compared to the earlier episodes before starting the treatment. Dr. Shah analyzed the follow-up and upgraded the prescription.

In February 2017, the patient visited for the second follow-up. He reported that there was no acute episode in one and a half months. He continued the medicines prescribed by Dr. Shah.

In May 2017, the patient was completely better as there was not a single episode of gout in the last 4-5 months. He was very satisfied with the treatment as he was free from the distressing pain and swelling of the great toe. He is continuing the medicines for further improvement.


The case study highlights that even in the long-standing and chronic conditions like gout a great improvement can be achieved in a short span of time with properly selected homeopathic medicines. Homeopathy helps in controlling the pain during the acute attack of gout as well as aids in preventing the recurrence of such episodes, and hence the use of conventional medicines can be avoided.
