There are pain syndromes like fibromyalgia and arthritis-related disorders, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, that involve every part of the body. There are relatively mild forms of tendinitis (as in 'tennis elbow') and bursitis to crippling systemic forms, such as rheumatoid arthritis. There are forms of the disease, such as gout, which almost nobody connects with this condition, and there are other conditions - like osteoarthritis, the misnamed 'wear and tear' arthritis - that a good many people think is the only form of the disease. Very Happy.

Reality, there are no easy cause-and-effect connections, but contributing factors include: age, weight, anatomy, infection of the joint and trauma. Lastly, some believe gout joint replacement surgery (arthroplasty) should be avoided for as long as possible. Yet the surgery has helped millions of Americans and is seen as a viable option when exercise, physical therapy and medication fail. Laughing

Cherries Have Had a Long History of Being Described as the "the Healing Fruit"

Just as cranberries prevent urinary tract infections and an apple-a-day can keep the doctor away, tart cherries are known to stop gout and arthritis pain. But if tart cherries are so good, why haven't you heard forum about gout? Well first, the FDA doesn't want you to know.

Addition to fighting joint pain, research also shows tart cherry juice helps to soothe sore muscles due to physical exercise. According to a study published in the British Journal of Medicine in June 2006, found that a drink made with tart cherry juice proved effective in reducing exercise-caused muscle pain and exercise-induced strength loss.

But look at it today, research shows that cranberries can fight urinary tract infections. Thanks for the freedom of speech in America.

Only a Few Vitamins Have Been Really Researched as Contributors to a Natural Gout Remedy

One is vitamin C which a few studies have found lowers uric acid levels somewhat. I have written about vitamin C for gout in earlier articles. Make sure you buy a Vitamin C preparation that contains added flavonoids, the more the better, to make it work more effectively. And buy a time (sustained) release Vitamin C product, because Vitamin C is excreted quickly.



  • Potassium citrate is reported to be helpful in natural gout treatment, and has been the subject of gout studies.
  • It aids excretion of uric acid, by raising the pH of urine. (Higher body pH levels make uric acid more soluble and thus better excreted).
  • Potassium citrate can also head off the danger of kidney stones, of the uric acid variety, forming.
  • One estimate is that there is a 20% chance that kidney stones will form in gout patients who also have acidic urine.
  • Folic acid has been found in at least one study to be helpful because it inhibited xanthine oxidase, but in others to have no effect.
  • It was part of the late Dr.
  • Atkins's (the Atkins diet) formula for curing gout naturally but in large amounts.
  • It should certainly only be taken under supervision by a qualified and experienced practitioner.

  • Quercetin may inhibit xanthine oxidase, the enzyme required to convert purines into uric acid.
  • This is the method used by the leading long term gout pharmaceutical, allopurinol.
  • Quercetin has done this in test tube studies. Wink



Other vitamins which have been reported from various sources to help in natural gout treatment are quercetin, folic acid, potassium citrate calcium, and fish oils. Writing on Gout Sufferers proved to be a gamble to us. This is because there simply seemed to be nothing to write about in the beginning of writing. It was only in the process of writing did we get more and more to write on Gout Sufferers.

Given that gout attacks are inflammatory, as shown by the painful inflammation of the affected joints, any substance which acts as an anti-inflammatory may make the attack less painful and inflamed. Fish oils have well researched anti-inflammatory properties. Smile

Vitamins Work in Other Ways to Help in Natural Gout Treatment

Those that work as antioxidants perform the helpful function of squelching free radicals. Why is this helpful? Because during gout attacks, free radical levels rise. Some leading antioxidant vitamins are vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene and selenium.

Fish Oils are Also Good for Gout Because They Promote a Healthier Body

Their omega -3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are a dietary deficiency for many people, especially those who don't eat fish. Omega -3 fatty acids are required to bring about a better balance of omega -3 and omega -6 oils in the body. Most people, it is thought, do get sufficient omega -6 fatty acids, especially if they fry with oils such as corn, soy, sunflower, safflower or sesame. Or, if they use these oils as salad oils. But people don't get enough of the omega -3's. This better balance promotes better health. Gout sufferers need to be as healthy as possible. Note: gout sufferers should not eat fish high in purines such as mackerel, anchovies, and sardines.



  • Ensure the fish oil supplement you buy has been manufactured with a molecular distillation process.
  • It takes out mercury, PCBs and dioxins.
  • Since cherries have been researched as blocking inflammation, they should be considered.
  • Cherries have also been found in studies to lower uric acid levels.
  • When they are not in season their dietary supplement extracts, juice and in dried form can be taken.
  • Cherries enjoy testimonials from gout sufferers both for curing gout naturally and halting the pain of attacks, but they won't do this for everyone.
  • Celery, in two studies, also reduced pain and inflammation, so you can consider celery seed extract as part of natural gout treatment.



Also referred to as "the disease of kings", the occurrence and development of gout are strongly determined by improper diet. In the past, the disease predominantly affected nobles and royalty, due to their access to an abundance of foods that are known today to have high risks of causing gout. These days, many people are still confronted with gout, as they consume foods that interfere in the normal activity of the body. Mostly people living in developed societies are the ones who tend to be affected by gout. The consumption of some exotic foods like seafood (oysters, caviar, calamari, sushi) or improper diets that contain a lot of meats (pork, poultry, beef) are the factors that seem to facilitate the occurrence and the development of the disease. Statistics indicate that people who live in less-developed countries have a smaller chance of developing gout. Also, research results reveal the preponderance of obese people among those who are suffering from different forms of gout. Evil or Very Mad

The foods that are known to have high levels of purine are meats like pork, beef, lamb, poultry, organ meats (brain, kidneys, liver and heart), fish and seafood (sardines, mackerel, oysters, caviar, calamari and crabs) and fat dairy products such as cheese, milk and butter. Even some vegetables like spinach, beans and peas are known to conatin large amounts of purines. However, green vegetables are thought to have no malign effects to the body. Fruits not only have low levels of purines, (and they are strongly recommended in any gout diet) but they also contain vitamins and minerals that are vital in the proper functioning of the body. Vitamin C, contained by most fruits, is a powerful natural anti-oxidant which helps in easing the symptoms of gout.

Gout is a Type of Rheumatoid Arthritis that Causes Pain and Inflammation of the Joints

The joints of the lower body seem to be affected the most. People with gout experience discomfort, swelling, local irritation and redness, itching sensations, pain, sometimes feeling a sensation of cold around the affected areas, the skin in those regions often looking stretched. Gout can also affect skin and soft tissue such as muscles and tendons, making them less flexible. Gout is known to be caused mainly by the presence in excess of crystallized uric acid deposits inside the body, which are difficultly eliminated by the kidneys. Improper diet can lead to more accumulation of uric acid in the body, as some foods that contain high levels of purine are synthesized by the body into uric acid. Wink



  • Proper gout diet replaces the foods that are considered to cause gout due to their high levels of purine with healthy, better tolerated foods.
  • Foods that are rich in saturated fats should also be avoided.
  • It was with great relief we ended writing on Gout Diet.
  • There was just too much information to write, that we were starting to lose hopes on it's completion! Smile



Proper gout diet and a healthy lifestyle are the best means of preventing and easing the symptoms of gout. It is a fact that there is no specific cure for gout and the treatment often prescribed for the disease usually acts by controlling pain attacks and inflammation. There is little that medicines can do for the patients who suffer from gout, especially for those who have chronic forms of the disease. Proper gout diet can both ease the symptoms of gout and prevent injury and complications. It is known to be the best way of handling the effects of the disease.
