Gout can be described as a painful attack of excruciating pain in the joints. It causes excessive swelling and stiffness in the feet, especially the large toe. The main cause for gout is an excessive amount of uric acid in the blood. It causes hard crystals to be formed in the joints and cause pain.
Overweight people have bigger changes to suffer from this condition and heavy drinkers are shortly after them on the list. You can increase the likelihood of gout if you also consume large amounts of meat that is rich in purines.
How to treat gout?
Well, first of all, it is important to schedule a doctor’s appointment. The doctor can thoroughly examine the condition and determine the cause. Since gout can be easily confused with other body infections, it is important to never skip on the doctor.
If the doctor diagnosed gout, you will most probably end up with a lot of prescriptions for non-steroid, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These can improve your overall condition but some can cause stomach pain, ulcers, bleeding or gastrointestinal issues.
But, fear not! There is a natural remedy that can provide even better results than the NSAIDs without the side-effects!
That natural remedy is actually cherry juice! According to numerous studies and research, the cherries can effectively regulate the uric acid levels in the blood and thus ultimately deal with gout, once and for all.
The only thing to have in mind is to buy organic juice, without any added additives or preservatives. If you are unsure, you can grow some in your own backyard and make a homemade cherry juice!
