Coping with Gout
Gout seems to increasing find it’s way into people’s lives uninvited and coping with gout can prove challenging.
Friends have used a few things over the years to combat the effects of Gout and here are a few of things they mentioned: Links included….
Montmorency Cherry Juice (Cherry Active)
Good for alleviating the effects of Ulric Acid….also comes in capsule form
Move Capsules (Supplements)
They contain Frankincense which is a great anti-inflammatory – 3-4 per day – along with other plant based substances great for joints, cartilage & general movement – thats why its called MOVE –
Homeopathy & Gout
On the Homeopathic front – treatments like Cochicum 30 – available via “Nelsons in London”
The main point is Alkalising your system – to insulate against Purine producing Foods
like Coffee, Sugar drinks, Alcohol, Chic Peas (Humous), Shell fish, Red meats, Coca Cola,
Another useful alkalising natural supplement is PACK BALANCING which comes not in a capsule but in a sachet which your mix with water & drink as shake in the morning – or as preferred:
In this way mixing & matching some have been able to manage their pH, reduce uric acid without going via the route of a daily allopathic tablet.
Please comment with any other experiences.
Forgetting to Hydrate – can leave your system dry, so flushing your system with ample water can help tremendously.
Lack of Sleep, exhaustion, over doing it, stress, tension, deadlines, lack of time to get things done, to many demands being placed on yourself – all these can “stress” the system and exacerbate and worsen whatever physiological state your body is in.
Things that are anti-inflammatory – will help, getting good bio-available cur cumin, frankincense etc will all help. As nice as turmeric is when added to salad, or soups the actual valuable cur cumin isn’t readily absorbed by the body. The active ingredient needed, cur cumin, isn’t bio-available, so the effect isn’t so great. Using a supplement with the extract in high concentration is a far more effective way to achieve the right result – hence the Move Capsules might be a good call.
