Coping with Gout in 2020
Gout seems to increasing 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 purines into Ulric Acid & therefore make them more prone to Gout attacks when not consciously “managed”.
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 Indian Frankincense & Cucumin extract from Tumeric which are both great anti-inflammatory – 3-6 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 & Pruines generated via your own metabolism.
Naughty for Gout sufferers can be things like Coffee, Sugar drinks, Alcohol, Chic Peas & Humous, Shell fish, Red meats, sugary 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 ulric 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 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, 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.
