Did you know the gout diet that helps cure gout pain will help support your health and wellness across the board?
People ask me all the time whether there is a special diet for every type of ailment. I have to say, truthfully, that a diet that cures gout may not also cure liver cancer, but it wonâ€™t hurt either.
Today, everyone wants me to write about specific diets that cure specific things because it makes for good marketing. After researching natural cures for more than 30 years, Iâ€™ve seen drugs that claim this and vitamins that claim that, yet the fact remains there is a proper way of living and eating that can benefit any disease or ailment, especially gout.
It may not make good marketing sense to tell you the secret about inflammatory diseases like gout pain and gouty arthritis, but Iâ€™m going to let the cat out of the bag anyway.
â€śFace it. No one benefits from your being healthy and gout free, except YOU and your family.â€ť
Big business reaps mega profits from selling you on taking pills and other medications and the bottom line is thatâ€™s simply bad science.
Food sourced nutrition, which is good for gout, is also good for other chronic diseases.
The same wholesome food that prevents chronic diseases like gouty arthritis â€śbefore diagnosisâ€ť can also help stop and even help heal gouty arthritis and other diseases â€śafter diagnosis.â€ť
The proper food-sourced nutrition can help detoxify, repair and rejuvenate the adverse effects of stress, bad diet and environmental pollution, which are the main causes of degenerative health conditions like gouty arthritis and gout pain.
Everyone seems to want a scapegoat to blame what really causes gout crystals to form and other health issues to develop in the first place.
Truth is an anti-gout diet may cure more than your gout attacks.
The proper nutrition from a proper diet can prevent, stop and reverse any chronic disease when married with a healthy lifestyle and determined attitude.
Selling people on the downside of gout and other curable diseases should be considered the crime it really is.
The worse thing a health professional can do is discourage a person who is going through his or her own natural healing response.
Truth is gout is caused from inflammation, but so is diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Thatâ€™s no reason to take away the only real hope people have by lying to them and telling them there is no cure.
Thatâ€™s how they market sickness through â€śdisease management.â€ť
You have gout because you didnâ€™t know how to prevent it. Now that same information can save you from over burdening your liver and kidneys, even more than uric acid crystals are doing, by taking harsh experimental drugs.
â€śThatâ€™s just adding insult to injury and injury to insult.â€ť
Your gout cure is a natural process, which simply requires your support. Why help gout pain by being your own worst enemy when all you need to do is depend on the â€śintelligent designâ€ť already busy working on your behalf?

There are different ways arthritis can attack your joints: gouty arthritis is one of those ways.
What if you could be free of gouty arthritis pain and any other kind of joint pain? What if it didnâ€™t involve taking harmful drugs? What if it was a lasting solution?
Would you do anything to have it?
If youâ€™ve suffered from gout attacks, then you know how intense the pain can be. Itâ€™s been described as having your big toe smashed by a hammer while stepping on a hot bed of coals. Gout pain is insanely excruciating, to say the least.
Another dangerous fact about painful gout attacks is that you never know when theyâ€™ll hit you. It could be while youâ€™re driving on the freeway, in an important meeting or even while youâ€™re sound sleeping.
The cure for your gout isnâ€™t medicine, its science!
You donâ€™t need anything but this rule:
Â· Reduce your consumption of animal protein to below 10%; drink the â€śrightâ€ť water and discover the joy of eating more whole plant foods.
What if instead of taking pain pills for your gout pain, you could just eat a salad!?
You see, you have symptoms of gout because a toxic waste from eating too much animal protein, called uric acid, is solidifying in your tissue and joint spaces.
This acid must be neutralized and eliminated from your gouty joints. You can start this process by drinking naturally alkaline water between your salad greens and steamed broccoli.
Minerals from plants and coral are what is called alkaline â€” the opposite of acid.
The problem is you need your kidneys to be in ship-shape condition to pump the dissolved gout crystals out of your blood stream from the animal protein.
One of the dangers of taking drugs to try and block your gout pain is that they are harmful to your liver and kidney function.
Did you know that because all drugs are poisonous the drug makers have to add special ingredients to slow down your liver and kidneys?
Otherwise, your metabolism would immediately flush the poisons out from your blood and joints.
Basically, gout inflammation is a sign that your kidney and liver filters are filled with metabolic waste.
Metabolic waste can build up from consuming rich â€śsweetâ€ť foods, organ meats and alcohol, among other things, or just from normal cellular waste. Every cell makes energy to function and in the process makes me acidic waste.
That should give you the evidence you need to cure your gout pain and gouty arthritis. Chances are your also suffering from chronic low-grade inflammation because youâ€™re dehydrated.
Free up your own healing process by feeding and watering your cells properly, then your gout attacks and arthritic pain will vanish once and for all.

Did you know, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), that eating or drinking products with fructose could trigger gout?
Then there are all these multi-million dollar advertising campaigns on television claiming high fructose corn syrup is good for you.
Whatâ€™s with that?
Didnâ€™t they learn anything from Big Tobacco???
The research suggested consuming sugar sweetened soda products could increase your risk of getting one the most painfully crippling diseases imaginable: Gouty Arthritis.
In fact, the study said sugared drinks might increase the risk of getting gout by up to 2.4 times!
The challenge with avoiding gout foods seems to be that people are reaching for foods that are high in sugars.
Purines are nasty little proteins that also cause gout pain and come from eating certain gout foods like pork, seafood and organ meats.
Naturally, as we avoid these high purine foods, itâ€™s easy to start eating too many â€śsweetenedâ€ť foods.
Having gout is like being stuck between a rock and a hard place â€” and the rock is moving in on you!
Researchers have noticed that gout attacks are on the rise, specifically blaming the increased consumption of soft drinks.
There are two forms of fructose in soft drinks:
- Sucrose, which is 50/50 fructose and glucose.
- High Fructose Corn Syrup, which is 55% fructose and 45% glucose.
Gouty arthritis pain and joint damage is caused from the crystallization of uric acid. Fructose-rich drinks increase blood levels of uric acid, just like purines from some gout foods like meat do â€” maybe even worse.

Gouty arthritis attacks more men than women, though women usually come down with gout only after menopause.
Gout develops from a build-up of uric acid in the blood, eventually concentrating in the joints. Once in the joints, the uric acid solidifies into whatâ€™s called gout crystals. Under a microscope you can see these hardened crystals are like needles. these sharp needles are what make gout attacks so excruciatingly painful.
Most gout symptom attacks are sudden and give no clue or warning, also called acute gout pain. Normally gout attacks the feet, ankles, knees and sometimes the hands and wrists.
The most commonplace gout pain attacks are in the big toe.
Sometimes the infected area may be diagnosed as a form of bursitis.
Actually, the gout causes the bursitis, which is an inflammation that spreads to the fluid sacs, which normally act as cushions in the elbow and knee.
These gout crystals come from an acidic state that overwhelms the kidneys. You can have a dangerous build-up of acidic waste and never get gout. However, an acidic body will eventually trigger chronic inflammation, the major cause of degenerative and age-related diseases.
Here are some factors that can trigger uric acid build-up:
- Alcohol consumption
- Seafood, pork and meat organs
- Aspirin use
- Niacin use
- Diuretic medicines
- Immune suppressants
- High blood pressure
- Lead poisoning
- Kidney failure
Ignoring your gout symptoms is the most dangerous thing you can do.
An acidic environment can lead to all kinds of health problems, so rather than popping pills that burden your kidneys more and cause an even higher level of acid in your body, its best you seek a natural, proven remedy, such as eating foods that neutralize acid. These are called alkalizing foods, which are just about anything thatâ€™s green.
Eating raw vegetables and drinking naturally alkaline water are the fastest way to cleanse your body of uric acid and stop gout pain.
Remember, your looking for a cure. If you think treating gout symptoms will help, youâ€™ll find your gout attacks coming back with a vengeance.

Gout is a unique ailment in that is extremely painful and attacks can come from seemingly nowhere. The earliest attacks often occur during the night and will strike one or more toes. The pain will be so extreme that even the pressure of a bed sheet will be too much to bear. During these attacks, many sufferers will resort to crutches or even wheelchairs. Gout pain becomes so severe that it often leads to nausea.
How Gout Symptoms Occur
Many sufferers are not clear on exactly how gout occurs. Gout is caused by high levels of uric acid in the bloodstream. This acid will eventually accumulate in the joints, forming crystals that are at the source of the pain and inflammation. The attacks often begin in the toes because blood flow is the lowest in the most distant extremities, particularly the toes because gravity makes it more difficult for the body to carry the crystals away from that area. The initial attacks often happen at night because the heart rate is much lower during sleep.
Uric acid is caused by eating purines, which come from eating animal products, like meat, especially organ meats like liver and kidneys. However, some vegetables also contain high levels of purines, particularly beans. If you suffer from gout, you should avoid beans, chicken, pork, beef, and shellfish.
While avoiding certain foods to control gout pain, there are also other things you can do to control your attacks. Aspirin and other pain relievers can be used to dull the pain. Dehydration will also make gout attacks worse and more frequent because it leads to a higher concentration of uric acid in the blood. This means that staying hydrated is incredibly important for a natural gout remedy.
Stress will also lead to more gout attacks. Donâ€™t think that using alcohol is a good way to relieve stress as alcohol actually makes gout worse. While most forms of alcohol will cause gout flare-ups, beer and ale are the most notorious culprits. It is important to use other techniques for controlling your stress, such as yoga, meditation, or even taking up a hobby.
There are many completely natural gout remedies, many of which are readily available at your local grocery store. Cherries, strawberries, and blueberries have all been found to be very effective at stopping gout pain. You can either eat these berries or drink the unsweetened juice from them.
