Around the 2nd week of February (2012), I was at a point in my life where I was too tired and too much in pain for just about anything. I had no energy, my joints were always hurting and I was under a constant state of attack from gout. I was in the middle of recovering from major reconstructive surgery to my right hand, fingers and wrist due to an on the job injury. To make matters worse, I lost my job because of the injury, and with my job went health insurance. I felt like I had nothing to look forward to.

Even though I received a moderate windfall for my injuries, it didn’t make me feel any better physically. I had been talking to my older brother, 6 years my senior, who had gone on a vegan diet about 4 months prior. He was boasting that he had lost nearly 50 lbs., his gout was gone and his blood pressure was controllable without medication. So I began to research this concept. I spoke to a few of my friends who were vegan, and watched some Netflix documentaries called “Food, Inc.”, “Food Matters” and one in particular about the Gerson Therapy for healing your body. The Gerson Therapy has been proven to cure cancer, and has been doing so for years, but is illegal in the U.S. (you have to go to Mexico) because of Big Pharmacy lobbyists. But the bottom line for all of this is that the way to achieve good health is through a plant based diet. It is well worth your time to research this concept.

So I became a vegetarian (not a vegan). I still eat cheese and occasionally use milk. Also, I allow myself a very small amount of meat (not red meat, usually white meat chicken, and no eggs) one day a week, and I drink a pint of cherry juice daily for the gout. I also bought a vegetable juicer to begin the Gerson Therapy program. I don’t have cancer (that I know of), but it has been proven that the right combination of juiced veggies can nourish you and detox your body at the same time. I don’t get hungry like I thought I would, and it is a very good feeling to wake up feeling great.

My main goal was to conquer gout and the arthritic pain in all of my joints. After enduring less than one week of this vegetarian diet and juicing, I was pain free. After two weeks I had lost 10 pounds. My energy level has increase exponentially, my mind has become much clearer and I have much more endurance with physical activities. Now, I have not had a gout attack in over a month.

The turnaround was absolutely amazing. 6 months ago, I was seriously considering a doctor recommended knee replacement. I could not walk up hills or up stairs. Now I run up stairs and trot up hills. I still have a ways to go, but I am absolutely thrilled of the outcome.

So, my friends, with that laid out before you, perhaps it would be to your advantage to check some of these things out. What you will find out will astound you and maybe alarm you, but it can only make your life better. There will be more to come as I progress.

I bid you peace.

      Did you just follow the dietary guidelines or did you also use the coffee enemas? I have heard that caffeine is a gout trigger.

      I don't know if you've ever read any of dr. Wesley price's stuff. But some of his theories have been proven that saturated fats like coconut oil, grass fed beef, organic eggs, raw milk, and animals organs can actually improve peoples health and diet. Here's an interesting article on it:

      A vegetarian or vegan diet does appear to heal a multitude of ills. It certainly did for me. There is something to be said about clean eating.

      Very informative. My poor dad suffered with gout in his big toe, and he was a large man, over 6'tall, and he said that was the worse pain ever. I know he wanted to cry about it. I know this hub will help those suffering with this ailment. Thank you for writing this. Faith Reaper
