The gout is a serious arthritis form and a mysterious one too; those who have it overlook it and do not notice it until it is late but also those that notice it are going through hard times. It is an issue of too much uric acid in the blood that is an end product of waste materials that go in the blood. Then they get processed in the kidneys too.
Those that have gout attacks have kidneys that do not work enough to remove excess uric acid and thus acid crystals form in the joints. Sings are sudden and sharp pain, heat, tenderness, redness, mostly seen on the big toenail and it can be so bad that even a feather touch can cause pain!
Gout is chronic and many people have it, but also man do not want to be dependent on aspirin all the time. Blend some food items and relieve this issue with no side effects, no steroids and regular meds.
- Ginger root
- Tart cherry juice
This fruit has the enzyme bromelain that lessens inflammation. It affects prostaglandin synthesis or it meddles with the inflammation and swelling hormones. This enzyme also breaks down digestion of proteins (it is used for tender meats too) and is used in protein diets too.
It has curcuma that relieves pain. Curcuma also stops the protein that enlarges blood vessels.
It contains gingerol, active item that is linked to capsaicin. The gingerol is like the capsaicin as far as molecules are compared, and this means stopping pain trigger signals to the brain and less inflammation.
Tart cherry juice
The cherries lower the uric acid levels, studies showed, and especially for gout. It can even stop future attacks if taken daily.
- 1 pineapple
- 2 tsp powder turmeric
- 3 tsp powder ginger
- 1 cup cherry tart juice
- Glass with lid
Remove skin and stem of the pineapple and chop it. Strain the drink if you prefer. You want to include the stem too since it has mainly bromelain, the item we need, but just the juice is fine as well. Dice the pineapple and toss this in the blender. Make it smooth mashed and put 1 cup cherry juice, and 1-2 tsp turmeric. Then add the ginger and store in the lid glass. Refrigerate no longer than 10 days. Add more honey if you prefer sweeter and use more or less turmeric/ginger as per taste.
Just as nettle tea, a=have this daily – it is safe and can stop gout to form. Or, take a glass when you feel pain coming up. This can stay in the fridge maximum a month if the dose is large. If you make it fresh all the time, make a medium batch and another toward the month end. If you cannot get pineapple easily, take bromelain supplement pills. Never get canned or dried pineapple since it is processed and full of sugars.
When diets change, people can feel changes in blood pressure too or hypertension and gout becomes more seen in most of the cases. Find which foods are good and bad for this health problem and adjust the diet. Keep in mind that even though some things are natural, they must be examined before you take them. Always talk with a health expert, dietitian or doctor.
Tip for the gout:
If you do not feel like having this drink, take the bromelain supplement instead, but this should be only a last resort option. Natural is always better.
