I've had the gout for 25 years. It's getting more frequent and intense lately. I'm really getting (literally) sick of taking all the drugs doctors order for me.... I drink a LOT of water daily and very little booze. Diet is light and lean. HELP!!!!! Does anyone have SOLID PROVED solutions????? I'm tired of :bnghd:looking for answers.

I reckon you just drink more water than you are drinking now.

my step father suffers from this and the best advice I can give is..

-cut out shell fish of any kind (mussles, prawns..etc)
-cut out red meat
-drinking milk is actually good for it
-cut out beer and wine
-go to your health shop and ask for "devils claw" as this relieves the symptoms
-regularly drinking water

hope this helps.

go to the health food store and get some cherry juice (or cherry juice pills if you can't find the other) It's one of those old wives tales that seems to help some people if they start it as soon as they begin to feel it flaring up. But I wouldn't give up the meds and the water either. Just use this as a supplement to that.

Shellfish is definitely a no go
Milk lowers uric acid
alcohol cause crystalization and will help uric acid build up
the are several herbal remedies to cure gout- ask a holistic healer
increase water intake
Maintain a healthy weight- don't fast! This increases uric acid.
Maintain good blood pressure.
Take pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs- herbal remedies help to, consider consulting a physician there are medications that will lower uric acid.
Masturbate more often. Yes, you heard right. Certain horomones that are released during ejaculation actually helps to lower uric acid build up.
