our approach

how we provide relief from Gout

At Weng’s Acupuncture & Herbs Clinic in San Diego, our approach to gout is rooted in the holistic principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). We understand that gout, much like other forms of arthritis, requires a comprehensive strategy for both acute episodes and prevention of recurrence. Integrating therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, and Tui Na massage, we aim to not only alleviate the immediate pain and inflammation associated with a gout flare-up but also regulate uric acid levels and improve overall joint health to prevent future episodes.

I was recommended to Wengs and I am so glad I found this place. Really relaxing and healing atmosphere. I've been dealing with a difficult situation of pain and pelvic pressure and bladder issues for a long time. Dr. Vivian is amazing. I am finding relief without medication or surgery. I have never done acupuncture before but I am an advocate for it now.

Navigating Gout: Your Questions Answered

Dealing with health issues, regardless of their nature, often leads to a myriad of questions and concerns. Understanding the root causes, the symptoms, and most crucially, the effective treatment options can sometimes feel overwhelming. Recognizing the need for clarity and guidance, we’ve assembled a list of frequently asked questions tailored to address common health conditions for the people of San Diego.

Gout is a form of inflammatory arthritis that arises due to elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. This excess uric acid forms sharp, needle-like crystals in a joint, leading to sudden and severe pain episodes, often described as flare-ups. While the body produces uric acid when it breaks down purines — substances naturally found in the body and in certain foods — gout develops when the body produces too much uric acid or doesn’t eliminate enough of it. Common risk factors include diet, obesity, certain medical conditions, family history, age, and gender, with men and postmenopausal women being more susceptible.

If you are suffering from gout and are located in the San Diego, CA area, we urge you to book a consultation with our incredible staff. At your consultation, we will dive into the root cause of your symptoms, develop a results-based action plan, and assist you on your journey to a happier, healthier, and pain-free life.

Gout typically manifests as sudden, severe pain in a joint, with the big toe being the most common site. However, it can affect any joint in the body. The affected joint might appear swollen, red, and feel warm to touch. These episodes, often called gout attacks, can last a few days to several weeks and can be so severe that even the weight of a bedsheet can be intolerable. After the attack subsides, the pain diminishes, leading to a period of remission, but without treatment, subsequent attacks might occur, and they often last longer and affect more joints.

At Weng’s Acupuncture & Herbs Clinic in San Diego, CA, our primary aim of gout treatment is managing acute attacks and reducing the risk of future flare-ups. Acupuncture plays a crucial role in immediate pain relief, reducing inflammation, and enhancing circulation in the affected area. Herbal medicine formulations are personalized to assist in regulating uric acid levels and improving kidney function, essential for the elimination of uric acid. Tui Na massage is employed for its benefits in enhancing joint mobility and reducing tension around the affected area. Prevention, through dietary guidance and lifestyle modifications, is also emphasized to manage triggers and reduce recurrence.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers a multi-faceted approach to gout, addressing both the symptoms and the underlying causes. Through techniques like acupuncture and herbal remedies, TCM targets not just the pain and inflammation but also the metabolic imbalances that contribute to elevated uric acid levels. By focusing on the body’s energy flow and internal harmony, TCM can bring about both immediate relief and long-term regulation of the factors that lead to gout flare-ups. This holistic approach, emphasizing balance and individualized care, makes TCM a compelling option for those seeking an alternative or complementary treatment for gout.
