An extremely effective natural gout cure is achieved with the use of cherries or cherry juice. The intake of cherries has a great anti-inflammatory effect and has also been shown to have the effect of reducing the amount of uric acid in the body, thus preventing it from crystallizing in the joints, which is where the pain associated with gout occurs. The cherries you use as a treatment for gout can be from a can or they can be fresh, they can be sour or sweet, it does not matter. It is recommended that if you plan to use cherries as a gout cure then the recommended amount for daily consumption is up to half a pound but not less than ten or so. Cherry concentrate can also be used very effectively and it is recommended that you have one tablespoon per day.
As gout is a dietary disease then it should come as no surprise to you that a change in diet can be an effective gout cure. If you are suffering from gout then you will want to limit your intake of foods containing a large amount of purines as these can account for up to fifty percent of uric acid present in the body. Foods that have high levels of purine and should be limited, if not cut from your diet entirely, are: Organ meats (such as sweetbread’s, brains and kidneys.), meat gravies, wild game, sardines, mackerel, anchovies, herring and scallops.
These foods are known to contain the greatest amount of purine content and as such need to be severely limited, or else, as I have said before, totally removed from the diet. If you are suffering from gout then you will also want to increase your water intake as this can have a very positive effect as a gout cure. Increasing your intake of water is a great way to help alleviate gout pain and stop gout attacks as it has the effect of diluting the uric acid in the body.
