how acupuncture works for Gout

Gout is a complex and painful form of arthritis caused by the build-up of uric acid in the joints, most often the big toe. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce levels of uric acid in the body. It also improves the flow of blood and oxygen to the affected site, encouraging healing. Additionally, acupuncture causes the body to release endorphins, resulting in pain relief for many conditions, including gout.
