Gout Info

“The best medicine I know for rheumatism is to thank the Lord that it ain't gout.”

Josh Billings

Gout is referred to as ‘podagra’ when it involves the big toe) is a form of arthritis, characterized by recurrent attacks of acute inflammatory arthritis—a red, tender, hot, swollen joint. It can be very painful. It is caused by elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. The uric acid crystallizes, and the crystals deposit in joints, tendons, and surrounding tissues.

In 50% of cases, the metatarsal-phalangeal joint at the base of the big toe is affected.

Clinical diagnosis may be confirmed by seeing the characteristic crystals in joint fluid.

Gout has become more common in recent decades, affecting about 1–2% of the Western population at some point in their lives. The increase is believed due to increasing risk factors in the population, such as metabolic syndrome, longer life expectancy and changes in diet.

Interestingly, gout was viewed as "the disease of kings" or "rich man's disease" historically.

To ease the pain during a gout attack, rest the joint that hurts. Taking ibuprofen or another anti-inflammatory medicine can also help you feel better. But don't take aspirin. It can make gout worse by raising the uric acid level in the blood.

To prevent future attacks, your doctor can prescribe a medicine to reduce uric acid build up in your blood. If your doctor prescribes medicine to lower your uric acid levels, be sure to take it as directed. Most people continue to take this medicine for the rest of their lives.

Paying attention to what you eat may help you manage your gout. Eat moderate amounts of a healthy mix of foods to control your weight and get the nutrients you need. Avoid regular daily intake of meat, seafood, and alcohol (especially beer). Drink plenty of water and other fluids.

There are some natural health products that may help alleviate this condition. Specifically the pain associated with it. Tart cherry is fantastic for gout.

  • Miracle Salts

    star

    I started Kruschen Salts at 50 years of age. I had severe Stage 4 arthritis in my knee. The doctor said I would need a knee replacement within 5 years. I am now 61 with no signs of arthritis in me at all. No pain, stiffness, swelling, nothing. The only change I made was taking Kruschen Salts. I tell everyone. Thankyou.

  • Best Stuff Ever!

    star

    My parents were taking these salts for years with their first cuppa tea in the mornings, and have never suffered from arthritis. I have been told that I have arthritis in my neck and de-generation. As a result I could not sleep unless I had painkillers first.
    I started taking these Kruschen Salts and only a few months later, I NO longer need any painkillers at all. My neck moves much more freely with barely any pain at all now. I've recommended these to lots of my family and friends who have also noticed big changes in their pain areas as well. Amazing Salts!! So reasonably priced. Beats anything else on the market.

  • Liposomal Turmeric

    star

    I am now on my second bottle of Turmeric Complex and I think I'm still uncertain regarding its outcome and will keep going till I have finished the bottle.
    I will review things after that. I must admit I have stopped taking my( Lyrica 300mg) tablets twice daily and I do feel that because of the Turmeric that I was able to do that. I would still like to try a little longer before I can honestly say for sure that it has helped a lot.
    So for that reason I would say it is only satisfactory at the moment. In saying that I am still hoping for better results in the near future.
    Don't like the price of the product but it is what it is.
    I would still recommend this product thus far.
