    It is said that apples and apple juice help to negate the uric acid, also, it is aid that soaking the feet in epson salt water helps draw out the uric acid, reduce the amount of meat you eat and avoid fish like, herrings, sardines, and mackerel, they all contain high levels of purines which can aggrevate and cause gout.

    anything that purifies the blood, there are lots of natural herbs and things that help with that just search in a herbal guide for blood purifiers.

    Also make sure to stay away from foods that are high in Purine as this is helps to bring on gout attacks.

    My dad had some very good results by using this weed called Cleavers to fix Gout related issues. All thats needed is for the weed to be boiled up for awhile in water then the resulting juice is drunk.

    Drinking Cherry juice will alleviate the symptons of gout. Red wine and coffee are triggers.

    I have had some success with concentrated cherry juice. It looks and tastes like cough syrup. I mix a quarter cup with diet Sprite and drink it 3 or 4 times a day during an attack.
    Ibuprofen will also reduce the inflammation that causes pain during an attack, but aspirin will precipitate more uric acid, so do not take aspirin.
    Colchicine is the best prescription medicine for gout attacks. It will take about 4 or 5 doses (1 per hour) to dissolve the crystals, and then overnight for the swelling to go down. It is very effective and you will only need to take it during an attack.
    There are foods that will precipitate an attack. My food is Shrimp. I can no longer eat shrimp.
    It may take a while to discover which food will precipitate an attack, but it is different for different people.

    There are  foods that are natural gout cures. One of them is berries: cherries, strawberries, and blue berries. Berries have a natural anti-inflammatory chemical that lessens the symptoms of gout. Moreover, eating foods that are rich in Vitamin C and bromelain (pineapples), chocolate, cocoa and tea are said to be effective in curing gout symptoms. These remedies do not have clinical proof yet, but they are safe to try and are recommended.

    You have received a lot of sound advice. You must, when buying produce go  organic. The berries and apples are excellent means of dealing with gout. There are herebal extracts, and dry herbs that can be made into teas that will probably correct the condition much faster and I'll name a few for you. Alfalfa, Fennel, gentian, Juniper Berries, Nettle, Spikenard and something out of your kitchen thyme. What they all share in common is that they aborb uric acid and cleanse the blood. They also can be used internally and externally. You can make fomentations with them and wrap the area in question, and take them by the capsules or drops of extracts. This way you go at the problem from both ways. If you use herbs, take for 6 days straight, then skip a day. Skip the same day every week while using the herb and you will find that you heal faster. Purchasing your products from a reputable dealer should insure top quality products. Herbs are a slow safe way of correcting physical problems.
