Gout pain is triggered from the formation of gout crystals. These gout crystals are from an acid waste created from eating certain meats like pork liver or anchovies. (Studies show cooking increases the gout causing proteins levels even more.)
Thereâ€™s also evidence eating certain unsprouted beans and peas, make toxic uric acid and block vital minerals like magnesium.
Sprouted seeds and beans naturally have less anti-nutrients and an increased nutritional profile, plus they are more easily digested and absorbed.
Gout happens when the formation of uric acid increases while the elimination of it decreases. One of the main culprits for this is chronic biological drought â€” or simply put dehydration.
Here are three things that increase uric acid waste:
- Enzyme abnormalities, possibly caused from a magnesium deficiency
- Increased turnover of cellular protein levels
- Environmental chemicals
Here are six things that decrease elimination of uric acid waste:
- Slow kidney function
- Acidosis slowing cellular respiration
- Ketosis slowing cellular energy
- Lead poisoning
- Elevated calcium in blood
- Low thyroid activity
As you can see, by counteracting the root cause of gout pain you can prevent it, treat it and even cure it. All you need to do is learn how to increase cellular function, maximize detoxification and optimize proper nutrient intake.
One nutrient that helps lower risk of gout in men is vitamin C. After a 20 year study of men with gout pain, researchers effectively decreased the occurrence of gout by about as much as 45%. The more vitamin C they took the better.
Vitamin C appears to help reduce the amount of uric acid waste in the blood while boosting proper kidney function. As you may already know, your kidneys are your biological filters and anything you can do to help them is a good move. Vitamin C has also been used to remove lead and other heavy metals form the body.
Another important fact to know is magnesium plays a critical role in more than 300 enzymes functions and â€śionâ€ť transports. Magnesium also helps the fatty acid and phospholipid metabolisms so vital for healthy cell membranes.
You should also know that calcium is toxic without the proper ratio of magnesium that is: 2 magnesium molecules for every 1 calcium molecules. Magnesium is like lubricating oil for your heart, balances cholesterol, increases circulation and prevent calcium build-up (plaque) in arteries.
This simple mineral salt is a powerful anti-inflammatory as well as a catalyst for increased cellular energy. You also need magnesium in order to absorb nutrients.
So, there you have it. You can defeat gout pain by increasing cellular energy levels to help speed up elimination of uric acid wastes. You can prevent enzyme abnormalities, maximize detoxification, and increase kidney function with magnesium rich water.
To prevent, treat or cure gout pain you need to increase kidney function, counter act acidosis and neutralize excess calcium levels â€” along with changing your diet.
All your gout worries can be naturally healed without dangerous drugs that slow the kidneys and burden cellular health.

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.

You may be surprised to learn how many health problems, such as gout, are caused from under-nutrition.
The secret to avoiding gout and other diseases is through selecting the right foods and avoiding the wrong â€śgout causingâ€ť foods.
Like the saying goes, â€śvariety is the spice of life.â€ť Avoiding the few foods that cause gout pain will still leave you a cornucopia of other delicious foods to enjoy.
Truth is what most people call eating a â€śbalanced dietâ€ť is actually one of the fastest ways to cause a nutritional imbalance that could lead to a gout attack, simply because the Standard American Diet (SADS) is a very narrow way of eating.
As you already know, you can get gout, or trigger gout attacks by simply eating gouts foods. These are foods that contain one or more of three ingredients that trigger gouty pain, arthritis and inflammation:
If you canâ€™t avoid all gout foods, you can still reduce the risk of gout pain and gout attack by eating plenty of other non-gout causing foods and staying well hydrated with the â€śright typeâ€ť of drinking water to help flush out these gout causing ingredients.
With todayâ€™s fast-food lifestyle and considering how many people eat out or count on frozen and prepared foods, itâ€™s important to also consider using whole food sourced supplements to help support a wide variety of vital nutrients and minerals.
Your digestive system isnâ€™t designed like a carnivore (meat eater). Your digestive system is shorter compared to a meat-eating animal like a cat or a dog.
Meat eaters have two things you donâ€™t have:
- A long digestive system
- Stronger digestive acids
That doesnâ€™t mean you canâ€™t enjoy meat in your diet any more than it means a dog or cat canâ€™t eat plants.
However, if you suffer from gout you do need to avoid eating certain kinds of gout causing foods like meats and pork, which is high in gout crystal forming purines and is also very acidic. To add insult to injury pork is often candied, which means it contains added sugars.
Natural unrefined sources of carbohydrates like raw cane sugar, honey and whole fruits arenâ€™t nearly as bad as refined sugar. Refined sugar in large quantities is poisonous. Sugar triggers all kinds of inflammation responses including gout, weight gain and loss of bone density because it makes your body tissues acidic.
By avoiding foods that trigger gout pain and inflammation, youâ€™ll discover foods that can actually reverse and even cure gout pain and inflammation â€” by simply making your body tissue more alkaline.

Over the years, I have helped hundreds of people just like you whoâ€™ve struggled with the symptoms of gout pain and inflammation.
As you may already know, the only chance you have at curing gout symptoms is to know the cause of your gout.
Too many people get fooled into serving the symptoms of their gout pain and inflammation with drugs and never even consider the cause of their gout pain.
Your health is really a choice. But, like Iâ€™ve said before, if you donâ€™t even know the cause of your gout symptoms, then it isnâ€™t your fault youâ€™re still in pain. So, today I would like to share with you important information that can help you cure yourself of your gout symptoms.
IF you want to know how to take back control of your health, then youâ€™ll need to learn how to â€ścreate your own healing experience.â€ť
Fact is your gout symptoms are proof your healing process is in working order.
Most people donâ€™t know that inflammation is a vital part of healing. The trick is to jump in and begin helping your body stop the cause of the gout symptoms. The only way to be able to do that is to know whatâ€™s causing your gout symptoms.
Itâ€™s shocking how many people fall for the persuasive advertising of drug companies that â€śsuggestâ€ť there is no cure for your gout symptoms â€” as if your gout symptoms are some kind of drug deficiency.
Letâ€™s get real!
When you look at the truth about gout symptoms in the light, the truth of gout pain soaks in more easily. You have every reason to believe that your gout symptoms of pain and inflammation can be stopped, naturally.
You want to stop your gout symptoms before you can reverse the crippling tissue damage from the gout crystals. Itâ€™s okay to take a few pain pills to block your gout symptoms, as long as you keep in mind that popping powerful pain-blocking chemicals isnâ€™t the same as â€ścuring the causeâ€ť of your painful gout symptoms.
The truth is your symptoms of gout are your bodyâ€™s normal healing response. The process of inflammation brings oxygen, nutrients and other protective factors to the areas gout is attacking.
If you stop the inflammation without removing the cause of your gout in the first place, then youâ€™ve basically helped gout destroy your body.
Your only defense against the destructive symptoms of gout is to help your bodyâ€™s inflammation process by eliminating everything you consume that has purines, sugar or acid causing factors in it.
Then you can cure and replace all those gout causing factors with alkaline creating foods, minerals and water. This will remove the cause of your gout symptoms.
