Gout Sufferer: Natural Gout Treatment: Resources


So much of natural gout treatment requires diet and every gout sufferer has to pay very close attention to what they eat and drink. Imagine how useful a nutrition database on your home computer is; one that you can quickly access, without going to the Internet or 500 page reference books, to look up the nutrients in foods and beverages. And suppose that this comprehensive database is free and easily downloaded? Too good to be true?


Its site says that there are Mac and handheld versions too. So if you use a handheld computer it can be used outside your home. It can be searched online for the vitamin, mineral, water, ash, protein, calorie, carbohydrate, fats, fibre (fiber), sugars, caffeine and others, of foods and beverages. It was at the spur of the moment that we ventured to write something about Purines. Such is the amount of matter that is available on Purines. Very Happy.

Not in this Case

The USDA National Nutrient database for Windows, Standard Reference, Release SR20 is free and it's easily downloaded. It comes courtesy of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture and HeatheTech Inc. Sometimes, what we hear about Purine Gout Diet can prove to be rather hilarious and illogical. This is why we have introduced this side of Purine Gout Diet to you.

You can even discover how cooking, canning and freezing various foods affects the Vitamin C content of them. (It usually falls). Not only can you look up each food you are interested via the database but you can also at this site look up lists (called reports) sorted from highest to lowest and download those lists to your home or office computer. For some investigations, it's a great time saver. These reports require Adobe Reader. We have written a humorous anecdote on Natural Gout Treatment to make it's reading more enjoyable and interesting to you. This way you learn there is a funny side to Natural Gout Treatment too!

PH of FOODS NUMBERS

Alkalizing your body (raising its pH levels above pH is an important part of natural gout treatment because the pH theory is that a more alkaline body make uric acid more soluble and better absorbs nutrients in foods. One way to improve your body's pH levels is to ensure adequate levels of potassium, calcium, magnesium and zinc. All are important in alkalization but more calcium may be the most since if your body is acidic (low pH levels below pH it may be scavenging calcium from your bones. Why? Blood pH must be at pH The body will ensure that it is, even if it has to loot calcium elsewhere to do it. All these minerals amounts in foods and beverage are shown in the National Nutrient database. We were furnished with so many points to include while writing about Uric Acid that we were actually lost as to which to use and which to discard!

Vitamin C has been pretty well researched as a natural gout remedy. It has been found to lower uric acid levels somewhat. In the last study about it in 2005, with 500 mg of Vitamin C daily. Vitamin C is best taken in foods. Use the National Nutrient database to find the natural Vitamin C content of foods Very Happy.



  • The carbohydrate, protein and fats amount in foods can be easily found in the National Nutrient database.
  • For this diet you also need to distinguish between mono and poly unsaturated fats and saturated fats.
  • The amounts of these in foods are easily discovered in the database



You don't wish to download it, the database can also be viewed online HOW EXACTLY CAN A GOUT SUFFERER USE IT? Apart from the obvious benefit of quickly learning the nutrient values of foods to construct a free gout diet. Here are a few ways. The results of one reading this composition is a good understanding on the topic of Purine Gout Diet. So do go ahead and read this to learn more about Purine Gout Diet.

PURINE TABLES

Over-producers of uric acid (as opposed to under-excretors) may benefit from a how to cure gout fast since restricting purines in foods probably means less available to be converted into uric acid. Do you want the purines contents of foods and drinks? Visit *****

Earlier articles I have written about the success a South African study of the use of three Zone diet rules had in lowering uric acid and against gout attacks in 13 male gout patients. Essentially, at the practical, do-it-yourself level, the Zone diet involves discovering your ideal amount of carbohydrates, protein and fats, and then implementing these amounts in your diet. How to discover and implement them are in the book "Entering the Zone" (aka the Zone diet) with additional tips and techniques in follow-up book "Mastering the Zone," both written by Barry Sears PhD. So too are many of the necessary values in foods. But the values tables in the books do not cover as many foods and beverages as does this "Titanic of nutrition" database. There is a lot of jargon connected with Free Gout Diet. However, we have eliminated the difficult ones, and only used the ones understood by everyone. Surprised.

Two Gout Sufferers Tell Their Story





Our society is such that on a daily basis we unknowingly introduce our bodies to countless foreign substances. We are so conditioned to our way of life that we are not conscious to the fact that almost everything we eat, drink, breathe and put in or on our bodies is full of any number of food dyes, additives and preservatives. We routinely ingest toxic and often deadly chemicals such as chlorine and fluoride or heavy metals like mercury and lead. The air we breathe is no better, containing an array of noxious manmade chemicals, any number of which if inhaled in large doses would be considered lethal. When the body is unable to effectively deal with this foreign invasion, it sends in lymphocytes, flooding your system with these disease-fighting white blood cells. Lymphocytes, which are produced in your bone marrow, are part of your immune system and help to fight off such things as infectious disease and foreign materials. When your body is consistently subjected to these foreign substances however, it essentially goes into a state of constant alert. Eventually, this endless battle overwhelms the immune system to the point it can no longer differentiate between what is normal and natural and what is foreign, initiating a condition known as an autoimmune disease. Arthritis, including gout, is one such disorder.

The Answer is Simple..

You can't put a price on your well being. You have options and changing your lifestyle and diet is the first step toward regaining your health. Despite what we were taught as children, disease is preventable not inevitable. If you find anything extra mentioning about Gout Treatment, do inform us. It is only through the exchange of views and information will we learn more about Gout Treatment.

There are Over 100 Types of Arthritis

Over 43 million Americans suffer yearly from some form of arthritis. Some worse than others, but for 20 million of these people, the disease has progressed to unmanageable proportions. It is usually at this point we seek medical attention for symptoms such as pain, swelling and increasingly limited joint mobility.

You are overweight, your doctor may explain the typical health issues associated with obesity (heart attack, diabetes etc.), but traditional medicine does not yet make the real and most important connection between diet and health. The human body, like all things organic, has a very sensitive acid-base balance. By nature, the human body is deigned to function at optimal levels when it is slightly alkaline (pH of 35 - . Anything below a pH of 7 is considered acidic. While certain areas and fluids of the body are more acidic than others, blood levels should be kept somewhat alkaline. When your body becomes too alkaline however, a condition known as alkalosis develops. By the same token, if it is too acidic, acidosis results. Every cell within the human body is slightly alkaline. During the many and often complex metabolic processes they undergo, they create an acidic byproduct known as free radicals from which they then derive energy to function. If this waste material is allowed to build up however, dominican university of california, which ultimately damages cell membranes, DNA and the basic cellular mechanisms needed to function properly. One such process is oxygen synthesis. When your body is too acidic, your red blood cells cannot transport sufficient oxygen to other cells. They begin to break down and die, a process that leads to inflammation as free radicals take over. While inflammation itself is not necessarily a bad thing as it neutralizes harmful microorganisms, when it becomes chronic, you can develop any number of diseases including arthritis. We also know an acidic, anaerobic (lacking oxygen) body is the perfect breeding ground for fungus, mold, bacteria, and viruses. Simply put, disease cannot live in an oxygenated body. So, if your pH levels are normal, you cannot get sick. In this sense, your pH level is truly your first defense against disease.

To restore proper alkalinity we must first change our diet. Low carbohydrate (no refined wheat, sugar etc.), lots of organic fresh vegetables and fruits and plenty of fresh, clean, preferably ozonated or at least filtered. With gout you must also avoid all purine and uric acid-forming foods such as all meat, eggs, and fish as well as tea, coffee and of course, all alcohol. If your body is severely acidic or you are overweight, you may need to first detoxify your body using one of the many safe cleanses. This helps remove accumulated toxins so your body can once again function properly. Drinking lots of water daily and cleansing your body regularly is essential to controlling the acidic build-up responsible for arthritis. As your acid levels decease, so will your inflammation and pain.

Natural Approach

Nature provides everything we need to support and nourish our bodies. The typical Western diet unfortunately consists of mainly nutrient deficient, highly refined and processed foods. Fast food for a fast life. It is no wonder that by medical standards, over 60 percent of all American adults are obese, 30 percent morbidly so. Obvious health issues aside, studies show a direct link between obesity and osteoarthritis. In fact, this risk can be up to 10 times higher for extremely overweight individuals. We have gone through extensive research and reading to produce this article on Gout Treatment. Use the information wisely so that the information will be properly used.

Gout and arthritis in general can be triggered by a multitude of things such as injury, food allergies, stress, a genetic predisposition or even your physiological and emotional state according to some studies. The bottom line however, is if the body is in optimal working condition, it can effectively heal itself by repairing these damaged cells. So, if you are suffering from any form of arthritis, your body is obviously deficient or toxic in some way and not able to effectively heal. In most cases therefore, it is necessary to support your healing by introducing proper nutrition and natural supplements to aid in the repair of tissue, boost your immune system and detoxify your body. Get more familiar with Uric Acid once you finish reading this article. Only then will you realize the importance of Uric Acid in your day to day life.

Many cases, arthritis can also be triggered by age and longstanding inferior nutrition. Overtime, our joints and the surrounding ligaments, tendons and cartilage can become worn with wear. The cartilage, which is a gel-like substance found between the bones, acts as a shock absorber, protecting the ends of the joints. When the essential enzymes normally produced by our bodies to repair this cartilage are insufficient, severe degeneration can occur. In order for these enzymes to be produced, the cells must be functioning properly. If your body is depleted of fundamental nutrients or overwhelmed by toxic substances, this reparative process will ultimately fail.



  • Researchers have classified over 100 variations of arthritis including such things as juvenile arthritis, fibromyalgia and lupus.
  • Most commonly however, people suffer from four main types of this disease: osteoarthritis, rheumatoid and infectious arthritis or gout.



The Bottom Line

Any way you look at it, gout is a preventable and treatable disease. Proponents of traditional medicine would have you believe drugs are the only answer to this painful and disabling condition. There are currently over 43 million Americans suffering from different forms of arthritis, yet the cases are still growing. Traditional medicine is failing. Our bodies have reached critical overload and our health is paying the price. At what point does the cost become too high?

Gout is one of the most painful forms of arthritis. It is considered a congenital disorder affecting uric acid metabolism that occurs when deposits of this substance accumulate in the connective tissue and or joint spaces. Considered foreign bodies, the uric acid then crystallizes, triggering an inflammatory reaction within the tissues. This further causes redness, a burning sensation and stiffness in the joints. Often, these crystallized deposits continue to grow until they actually break through the skin forming open sores filled with a chalky white substance. People have an inclination of bragging on the knowledge they have on any particular project. However, we don't want to brag on what we know on Gout Arthritis, so long as it proves useful to you, we are happy.
