Natural Remedies For Gout

Gout, one of the most painful forms of arthritis, is found primarily in men. While we can't cure it, we do have several highly effective herbal treatments to control it. The symptoms of gout are often centered in the big toe, causing it to become swollen and extremely painful; but any joint may be affected. If your body produces too much uric acid, or your kidneys aren't working properly to excrete it, an acute gout attack can follow.

Through the ages gout was known as the "disease of kings" because it was believed that a rich (man's) diet caused the disease. This myth is partially true. Diets high in purines (organ meats, fish eggs, sardines, anchovies, beer, and wine) can aggravate gout -- but only in people who have trouble dealing with uric acid. Likewise, eliminating these foods may help reduce chances of an attack, but won't cure the underlying cause. Alcohol, too, can cause an attack or make one worse. Your diet and drinking habits should be fully discussed with your doctor when you begin treatment.

Herbal gout remedies concentrate detoxification to reduce levels of uric acid, while relieving the pain and swelling.
