Coping with Gout in 2023 –

Gout seems to increasingly find it’s way into people’s lives uninvited and coping with gout can prove challenging. It is said 1% of the world’s population have DNA which is pre-deposed to convert food produced purines into Ulric Acid & therefore make sufferers more prone to Gout attacks when not consciously “managed”.

It’s easy to get caught out with busy living, fast food, quick coffees and tasty take-out food. What’s more, by the time you hear your bodies ‘call to action’ – you are already ‘in-it’, experiencing a gout attack and in pain too. People 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 dried capsule form – you can pick Cherry Active up from Holland & Barratt on many UK high streets. 

Vegan Omega 3

Move & Gout

Move Capsules (Supplements)

They contain Indian frankincense & cucumin extract from tumeric which both have great anti-inflammatory effects – 3-6 capsules 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 from shops like “Nelsons in London” can be helpful in alleviating the effects of ulric acid in the system.

The main point is acknowledging the need for alkalising your system – to insulate against purine producing foods & purines generated via your own metabolism.

Naughty for gout sufferers can be many of the things we might like such as things like coffee, sugary drinks, alcohol (full of sugar), chic peas & humous, shell fish, red meats, sugary Coca Cola – the is a big list.

Another useful alkalising natural supplement that might help is known as 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:

Balancing – alakalising packs

In this way mixing & matching some have been able to manage their pH, reduce ulric acid without going via the route of a daily allopathic medication.

Please comment with any other experiences.


Of course an absolute, but often neglected act hydration.  Forgetting to hydrate, during our daily routine – can leave your system dry, so flushing your system with ample water can help tremendously, as each cell can hell in flushing and balancing the system – but they all need a drink too!

Stress Not

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 curcumin, 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, may not be so bio-available with fresh turmeric, so the effect isn’t so great. Using a supplement with the extract in high concentration can prove a far more effective way to achieve the right result – hence the Move Capsules might be a good call.
