Specifically Montmorency Tart Cherries, help usher Uric acid out (cause of crystals in joints). Red Clover flower tea, has an uncanny ability to assimilate undigested animal protein, animal protein being a contributing factor.
Get rid of alcohol and start walking briskly every day till you get up to a few miles…stretch. Cut back on red meat, turkey, sugar and bread.
Walk, walk some more…stop drinking

GAH!! Woke up at 1am with a pain in my foot. Went to stand up, and I went down like a sack of potatoes...in agony, and sniveling like a little school girl! Severe Gout flare up!
I couldn't even figure out how to get back to my feet at first. Anything which touched my left foot in any way, at any location, was agony like a lightning bolt of pain shooting through my body. I wound up dragging my butt over to the bed and used the bed to help myself stand up. I spent the next 15 minutes trying to figure out what part of my foot I could put some weight on without folding up on the floor again. Figured out I could put some weight on my heel a little bit, but that was it.
OMG does gout hurt!! I would not wish this s# on my worst enemy! Took me about 15 minutes to make it to the medicine cabinet, and another 20 minutes to get here to my desk. I wish I had some crutches, or one of those little scooter things you can put your knee on. This just thoroughly sucks!
Sorry for being a whiny little b#, but FCD is extremely unwell right at the moment and I just needed to get that off my chest.
Thanks for listening!

Gout, stay away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you serious?
That's all I need. I eat canned salmon regularly for the calcium, since I must limit dairy.
