Gouty Arthritis: An Alternative Medicine Approach.

Using Celery Seed

Celery SeedCelery Seed is an old fashioned herb that comes from Europe and it is another herb in the MediHerb formula Boswellia Complex.  I did not mention this in previous blogs but uric acid (UA) levels are also elevated in patients with osteoarthritis (OA).

Uric Acid

UA is just another feature and another component of Metabolic Syndrome.Uric Acid is naturally occurring in the blood stream and it acts as an antioxidant and works in combination with Vitamin C in the blood stream to keep the blood healthy. If you have too much UA it gets into the cells and inside the cells it no longer has an antioxidant function but it has a pro oxidant function. UA as you know causes gout so if we can lower the UA then we can have a significant impact not just on the Gouty Arthritis, which is where Celery Seed is traditionally used,  but also in the modern forms of OA where many of the patients have these elevations of UA. Celery Seed comes into the picture because Celery Seed is arguably the best herb for the clearance of UA and other acidic metabolites from the body.  Celery Seed also has some excellent anti inflammatory properties which makes it relevant in the care of OA.

A Multifaceted Approach

This comprehensive approach leaves very few stones unturned in our quest to support and help our patients regain and maintain their healthiest status.
