Gout?Natural Treatment and Cure.
« on: September 11, 2012, 10:26:23 AM »
A painful condition, gout is caused by the formation of uric-acid crystals in the joints. Although some cases are largely hereditary, alcohol and other dietary factors seem to play a role. High uric acid levels in the blood is a condition known as 'hyperuricemia. Over time this can lead to the production of uric acid crystals which can settle in the joints, tendons and surrounding tissue,that can leads to gout or gouty arthritis.
One thing you can do to try and prevent this problem is to change your lifestyle and eating habits.

* Change your diet by minimizing the intake of foods that are high in uric acid, includes red meats, mushrooms, organ meats, anchovies, and others.
* Drink 2 - 3 liters of water everyday. Water helps the kidneys to process and flush uric acid out of the body.
* Having a glass of milk and yogurt everyday can also help lower uric acid levels in your body.
* Increasing you intake of vegetables can also help reduce uric acid problems. Avoid beans and other legumes seem to worsen uric acid problems.
* One cup of fresh cherries/juice everyday help lower the uric acid.
* Avoid alcohol and fatty meats .
