I have been fighting an on going battle to get rid of gout attacks in my big toes and knee. I have been on medication from my M.D. off and on now for some time. The meds take the pain away but it always returns. I have tried herbs such as burdock root, cherry juice, and charcole. These did not help. Maybe I don’t have the right combination of herbs or maybe I am not taking them long enough. I take them until the bottle is empty then quit. Any suggestion about how to get rid of gout? I am at a loss as to what to do, any help will be appreciated!!
Advice from someone who get rid of gout!
Sometimes one needs to experience the true pain that goes along with the gout, and I have.
Take the following till you get rid of gout. Also if your a beer drinker, Stop now, and don’t drink any till you get rid of gout! The worst the pain the more I’d drink, WRONG, DON’T do it!
OK, Unsweeten pie cherry’s (Ingredients: Cherry & water) from your food chain or Kundsen’s Concentrated Black Cherry Juice from your health food store works the best. Stay away from yeast, beer, pea’s, processed meats, and some dairy products. Depending on how bad your gout is, it could take up to 3 months to get rid of the gout. I was walking with the help of a cane, because the pain was so bad. I get rid of gout and never came back, and that was 7 years ago.
I want you to know, the cherry’s will dissolve uric acid (gout), But you will probably hate cherry’s when you get through it, because your going to eat a whole lot to get rid of gout.
Before to get rid of gout you need to know from where you develop this illness
- You may want to check with your doctor to determine what is causing the elevated uric acid levels. It could be something simple, such as medications you are taking.
- Diuretics and chemo drugs can raise uric acid levels.
- Kidney damage can prevent uric acid excretion.
- Diabetes is a common cause of kidney problems, and prostaglandin inhibitors such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and naproxen sodium (Aleve) are well known for causing kidney damage.
- Some uric acid is actually broken down by intestinal flora for excretion which are destroyed by antibiotics.
- Leukemia and hemolytic anemia are also possible causes of elevated uric acid levels.
- Rarely the person has a genetic disorder in which they lack an enzyme required for uric acid excretion.
Uric acid itself is produced during the breakdown of proteins which are made of aminoacids. These aminoacids are ammonia based, and excess ammonia is toxic to the body. Carbon dioxide binds to the ammonia forming uric acid which is then converted by water to urea and expelled as urine.
Most people tend to consume way too much protein. The average person only utilizes roughly 3 ounces of protein a day, even if you are an athlete. Over consumption of protein only increases uric acid levels in the body, especially when consuming meats for a protein source.
When an animal is killed uric acid is trapped in it’s cells. So you are consuming uric acid from the cells and proteins which will be converted in part to additional uric acid. Other sources of uric acid production include dairy, algae (due to nucleic acid content), and beer (due to high purine levels).
Provided that the doctor does not find any of serious metabolic disorders, there are various ways of reducing uric acid. My favorite herb for helping to lower uric acid levels is nettle leaf, though safflowers also work well. If you have been on antibiotics I would suggest fibers and yucca root to help build up your intestinal flora.
Water is extremely important since unhydrolyzed uric acid crystals will cut up kidney tissue as it passes through. This is one of the main reasons for the high incidence of kidney disease in the US. Americans tend to eat too much protein, and do not drink enough water. Coffee and sodas do not count as water.
