It does not pose any side effects to your health, which is why there is nothing wrong if you will take this as a home treatment for gout. You can prepare the apple cider vinegar as a gout treatment either as a drink or as a topical agent.

Do NOT listen to Gout Conquerer! Drinking 10 ounces of water every 30 minutes is insane and could harm or even kill you.

A large chronically dehydrated person living in Florida in July, sweating profusely, would have a hard time justifying more than 16 cups of water per day. The average person is awake 16 to 20 hours per day, If you were to drink 10 ounces every 30 minutes, you could end up drinking 3 gallons of water per day, which, unless you're a professional athlete or someone who often finds themselves losing that much fluid per hour, would probably cause you harm.

While it's important to stay hydrated and some excess water can help flush some things out, don't overdo it and be sure to include at least a bit of salt and potassium while you're consuming that much liquid, quad cramps are the worst! 8 - 12 ounces per hour until you pass the skin pull test, which is a decent gauge of your current hydration. Once you've hit normal hydration levels and you're pretty sure your electrolytes are under control, drop to 4-8 ounces per hour depending on your weight.

Buy colloidal minerals, or minerals and take them 3 times a day with plenty of water. The minerals liquify the uric acid crystals causing the pain and they are urinated out of body. PH Balance sold by Mother Earth Labs is being used by several people that had severe cases of gout and it is now gone. Very important to take it 3 times a day instead of all at one time so that minerals are in system at all times to stay ahead of uric acid. It may take 3 to 4 days to return to normal. Colloidal minerals can be purchased at health food stores or ordered on line.


Cherry juice! Drinking pure cherry juice! Work out how much for yourself as each person is an individual.


Better than a cure, is the discovery of the cause for an ailment. Thought I do not have Gout, I have known many people, here in the south, who do. In the south, we eat a lot of pork. And folks who experience Gout, simply stop eating pork, and the Gout disappears.


Watermelon!! Seriously!! Google 'watermelon and gout' I was walking with a cane, two days of eating watermelon for breakfast and adding pulp to my water, now I'm not. Hope it works! And you can freeze it for after watermelon season is over.


It may seem to simple to work but if I start this treatment the very moment that I feel the pain in my toe or in my foot, it either stops it cold or lessen the duration and pain greatly! I take @ 4-5 ibuprofen and then immediately place a VERY, VERY COLD pack on the affected area and keep it pressed-up to that area until it feels like I might freeze my foot, take it off for a minute, then put it back again and hold it there until the cold pack gets warm.


Mr Verns Exanthum Oil will alleviate and / or eradicate gout pain in 24 hours or less ! It is inexpensive and does what no other topical can do. Google for information , testimonials and how to buy !


Food and overall well-being are very important in the fight against gout pain, however, there are other, up-and-coming methods being used to help fight the pain too. For instance, topical pain relief is on the rise, and it is one of the most effective and safest methods of fighting gout pain. It provides the same, usually greater, relief that specific pills do, however, there are no pills or side effects. I myself am currently a user of topical pain gels, which I easily get through my pharmacy in the midwest, A&R Pharmacy in Liberty, MO, and simply apply the gel whenever I'm in pain. I've been using them for roughly 18 months and have had more than significant results since going this route and I highly recommend it for anyone struggling with pain and/or pills. Take over the pain before it takes over your life. I hope this helps a few of you.
