Have you ever heard the word gout? This is the condition when someone feels very painful on the ligament due to arthritis. Gout may happen on the fingers, waist, and other locations. Besides taking hydrotherapy, gout sufferers many have reflexology to get rid of their gout. It is the treatment which stimulates specific points on the feet, hands and ears. The purpose is giving positive healing effects on other parts of the body. Actually, it has many other benefits related to the person’s health. But for the gout sufferers, reflexology can give maximum healing. This is because reflexology helps to restore balance to the kidneys. As you know, kidneys are responsible for uric acid production. Therefore, reflexology works to stimulate the points in both feet to help the kidneys lower uric acid production and break up the uric acid crystal deposit.
Fortunately, reflexology gives no harmful side effects. Indeed, the gout sufferers will feel pain while the reflexologist presses certain points on their feet. But it cannot be said as the negative side effect. The pain you feel is the body mechanism to flush the toxins out off your body. Some people say that after the therapy session, they experience nausea, headaches or sinus congestion. Commonly, all of them will disappear after 24 hours. It s also recommended for you to keep consulting with the doctor, so that he can give you better advises and medication needed.
