Kidney Stone Recovery: Natural Gout Treatment: Which Vitamins Are Good For Gout?

Only a few vitamins have been really researched as contributors to a out with gout remedy report. One is vitamin C which a few studies have found lowers uric acid levels somewhat. I have written about vitamin C for gout in earlier articles. Make sure you buy a Vitamin C preparation that contains added flavonoids, the more the better, to make it work more effectively. And buy a time (sustained) release Vitamin C product, because Vitamin C is excreted quickly. Wink



  • Quercetin may inhibit xanthine oxidase, the enzyme required to convert purines into uric acid.
  • This is the method used by the leading long term gout pharmaceutical, allopurinol.
  • Quercetin has done this in test tube studies.



Vitamins work in other ways to help in natural gout treatment. Those that work as antioxidants perform the helpful function of squelching free radicals. Why is this helpful? Because during gout attacks, free radical levels rise. Some leading antioxidant vitamins are vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene and selenium. Smile







  • Potassium citrate is reported to be helpful in natural gout treatment, and has been the subject of gout studies.
  • It aids excretion of uric acid, by raising the pH of urine. (Higher body pH levels make uric acid more soluble and thus better excreted).
  • Potassium citrate can also head off the danger of kidney stones, of the uric acid variety, forming.
  • One estimate is that there is a 20% chance that kidney stones will form in gout patients who also have acidic urine. Embarassed



Given that gout attacks are inflammatory, as shown by the painful inflammation of the affected joints, any substance which acts as an anti-inflammatory may make the attack less painful and inflamed. Fish oils have well researched anti-inflammatory properties. Shocked

Other vitamins which have been reported from various sources to help in natural gout treatment are quercetin, folic acid, potassium citrate calcium, and fish oils. With people wanting to learn more about Allopurinol, it has provided the necessary incentive for us to write this interesting article on Allopurinol! Rolling Eyes

Ensure the fish oil supplement you buy has been manufactured with a molecular distillation process. It takes out mercury, PCBs and dioxins. Since cherries have been researched as blocking inflammation, they should be considered. Cherries have also been found in studies to lower uric acid levels. When they are not in season their dietary supplement extracts, juice and in dried form can be taken. Cherries enjoy testimonials from gout sufferers both for avoiding gout with milk and water halting the pain of attacks, but they won't do this for everyone. Celery, in two studies, also reduced pain and inflammation, so you can consider celery seed extract as part of natural gout treatment.

Calcium may be helpful because it helps to alkalize the body, (i.e. it raises its pH levels making the body more alkaline) and thus, the theory is, more uric acid will be excreted. In pH theory, because the blood's pH must be maintained at pH 365, the body will scavenge calcium from bones to maintain blood pH at Most people, it's said, and probably most gout sufferers too, have acidic bodies (which ought to be alkaline) and therefore a deficiency of calcium.

Fish oils are also good for gout because they promote a healthier body. Their omega -3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are a dietary deficiency for many people, especially those who don't eat fish. Omega -3 fatty acids are required to bring about a better balance of omega -3 and omega -6 oils in the body. Most people, it is thought, do get sufficient omega -6 fatty acids, especially if they fry with oils such as corn, soy, sunflower, safflower or sesame. Or, if they use these oils as salad oils. But people don't get enough of the omega -3's. This better balance promotes better health. Gout sufferers need to be as healthy as possible. Note: gout sufferers should not eat fish high in purines such as mackerel, anchovies, and sardines.

As of now, January 2005, more than half of all north Americans are struggling with obesity. The 'quick fix' for 'fat' for the last 40+ years, becoming ever more popular, has become the Atkins Diet. The Atkins Diet was first popularized in the U. S. Air Force during the 1960's.

And not just the Atkins Diet

Any and all diets which highly restrict or eliminate one of the essential food groups we all need to maintain optimal health is equally bad. Stop the insanity and use a REAL diet --- the only proven diet which will work for virtually everyone.

If in doubt, or if you have questions, you should consult your physician and, if possible, consult a second physician for a possible different opinion. The author does not bear any responsibility for your decisions nor for the outcome of your actions based upon those decisions.

The second myth: The Atkins Diet is actually a 'Lo-Carb' diet, not a 'No-Carb' diet. What should be cut out are breads, rice and potatoes. Fresh fruits and vegetables should not be cut back and many should be somewhat increased. Finally, after the first month you can 'safely' add breads and potatos --- in limited quantities. One friend of mine eats 1 bite of breads/toasts, etc., served with his meals, such as garlic breads. One bite and not a morsel more. The best way of gaining knowledge about Gout is by reading as much about it as possible. This can be best done through the Internet.

The first thing you must understand is that, across the entire human spectrum, each of us is very different from one another in the chemical makeup of our body. Thus, each of us, individually, should have our own highly personalized, custom built diet, created by a dietician using a chemical makeup assessment, usually a $200 hair analysis, of our particular body type and individual nutritional needs. So far as I know, this technology and this type dietary assessment is still available only through certain holistic health practitioners and it is becoming more and more expensive. As an example, it typically costs now between $200 and $300, whereas in the mid-1970's it cost between $100 and $150.

The true danger of the Atkins Diet, however, lies in the fact that, for people who already have health challenges, the Atkins Diet actually worsens some conditions and creates other health challenges that did not exist before the Atkins Diet. The worst of these is Gout. If you have a tendency to suffer gout, no matter how well controlled you have it, a strict Atkins Diet will create a severe gout condition and gout attack for you. If you merely had the tendency for gout with no active gout, the Atkins Diet will precipitate an actual condition of goutezol in malaysia body. A severe case of gout requires medical intervention to correct as well as long-term dietary control and change. The long-term danger of gout is an increased tendency for heart attack and stroke. See Native's Gift for one proven help for gout.

The Atkins Diet is very simple --- restrict your carbohydrate intake. And guess what? It actually works. But Dr. Atkins, after the initial few years of his popularized diet, began to make modifications and refinements to the original basic diet. And several other people have taken the basic Atkins Diet, modified it just a little, and come up with a new and very workable diet. Embarassed

The third myth: Mention the Atkins Diet and most people's reaction is 'Oh, yes, the 'high protein' diet.' Not true at all --- it's a 'Low Carb' diet ' protein intake remains unchanged. Some carbs only, not all, are restricted (versus eliminated completely); fats, particularly in older people, need to be restricted; protein should be kept to 4-6 ounce portions per meal, the lower values for breakfast and lunch. What you need to increase is your intake of high-fiber foods such as celery, etc.

The first myth: many dieters who use this program believe that calories and fat do not matter when eating low carb food, but in some cases this has proven to be fatal. Depending upon your particular body chemistry, when eating high fat food your cholesterol could climb and climb, leading to a heart attack or stroke. Also, it has now been proven that the older we become the less our body is able to metabolize the 'high fat' portion of the Atkins 'lo carb' diet, leading to additional dietary and health problems.

Disclaimer: This article in no way should be taken as 'medical advice' on any product, condition or course of action, nor does it art institute of pittsburgh way 'medical advice' endorsing any specific product, specific result, nor any possible cure for any condition or problem. This article is meant as a source of information upon which you may base your decision as to whether or not you should begin using any vitamin, mineral and/or herbal supplement for better health, or begin using a 'greens' product as a dietary supplement.

This is ridiculous

Why? Because the elimination of carbohydrates and the reduction of the fresh fruits and vegetables actually throws your health into a major imbalance. Overloading your unbalanced diet by an excess of protein intake (adding that steak, above) to 'increase the volume' to a satisfying level merely exacerbates this imbalance.

What is it? Its actually two things: A food diet and exercise ' yes, simple exercise, like walking a mile a day. A completely balanced, restricted calorie, diet containing a little bit of everything. Eat three meals a day, get your sweets, carbs, veggies, fruits, juices, protein and keep it to 1200 calories a day. Eat your breakfast and go out and walk the dog ' if you don't have one, take your neighbor's. Give this diet a year of your life, weigh yourself every Monday and keep track of your weight, see where you are with it'..and make the change for the rest of your life. When you get to your target weight you may increase the diet to 1600 calories a day.

If your body type and chemical makeup is suitable for the Atkins Diet then by all means use it. Remember that there are several similar alternatives out there which may be more suitable than a strict Atkins, to include some of Dr. Atkins own later work and recommendations. If you have health challenges, to include a tendency for gout or actually suffer from gout, or have diabetes or any of several other disorders, the Atkins diet is definitely something you need to avoid. Never be reluctant to admit that you don't know. There is no one who knows everything. So if you don't know much about Gout Attack, all that has to be done is to read up on it! Embarassed

The reason why the Atkins Diet works is because your body metabolizes its stored fat (carbohydrates) in order to burn --- digest --- the protein, fiber and fat you are eating. The Atkins Dieters tend to leave out several food groups, including fruit and vegetables, since they are 'high carb food', and then tend to grab a steak instead, which has very low carbohydrates.

  • Are you wondering what is best home remedy for gout?
  • Are you part of the millions who want to naturally cure gout but are wondering where to start?



Naturally Cure Gout vs. a Doctor's Prescription I am not completely opposed to prescription medications but in some cases prescriptions do more harm than good! Especially, when it comes to treating gout!

Treat It and Forget It! Blueberries, bananas, cherries, strawberries, barley, hawthorn and much, much more! Are you interested in a 'treat it and forget it' remedy cure? If you are serious about saying good-bye to gout forever, visit our Home Remedy for Gout website, and consider a 100% guaranteed (you are cured and completely satisfied-promise), medical doctor-approved, researched based Gout Remedy Report that has literally helped tens of thousands. Because your health is worth it! Wink

5. Vitamins! It has been documented that Vitamin C has been shown to help reduce uric acid levels in the body. Thus, resulting in less gout acute attacks. We also recommend finding a quality multi-vitamin for supplementing. Laughing

2. Limit Alcohol- Alcohol has also shown to raise the uric acid levels in the body. You should never drink more than 2 alcoholic drinks per day. The key is to keep the uric acid levels down.



  • By choosing to take any of the following treatments, you can actually cause more harm to the affected joint and not even realize it.
  • Though your brain might be telling you that 'it doesn't hurt'; your joint might be 'screaming with pain'.





  • And though gout is common today, you can cure gout by reversing the risk factors (alcohol and being overweight).
  • Specifically, gout can naturally be cured by changing simple lifestyle habits.



However, by naturally curing gout with simple lifestyle habit changes, you can decrease uric acid levels (cause of gout) and naturally cure gout permanently. The following is a list our natural health medical doctor recommends to our customers. Surprised.

You most likely have already seen a doctor about your arthritic condition? Though doctors might prescribe a 'hefty' pain medication, this is not a cure! Pain medications are meant to help you deal with the pain and will never fully treat or cure the gout problem you are dealing with. In fact, the only way to cure gout is to use simple, effective natural health tips that have been around since King Davis college. Seriously!



  • Exercise, obviously! - I recently read an article of over 1,000 benefits from exercise.
  • And can you believe it, they forgot to list that exercise will eventually help you cure gout.
  • By lowering your Body Mass Index (BMI) and maintaining a healthy body weight, you can naturally cure gout!



3. Drink half your body weight- You should be drinking half your body weight in ounces of water per day. That means if you weigh 200 lbs. you should be drinking 100 ounces of water per day. That equates to 12 glasses of water per day. Water is a natural flusher and essential for optimal health!

Imagine a man with a brain tumor who is always getting headaches. The man continues to take aspirin, prescribed by his doctor, to relieve the headache only to find out that his migraine returns. Though the doctor continues to prescribe aspirin; the pain reliever will NEVER cure the brain tumor. In fact, the brain tumor will only get worse if drastic measures are not taking. What we have written here about Uric Acid Levels Gout can be considered to be a unique composition on Uric Acid Levels Gout. Let's hope you appreciate it being unique.

To Cure Gout is to Reverse the Risk-factors Gout has been around for 3000 years and was even known as the 'disease of kings' because many kings would get the arthritis from their luxurious lifestyles. Being that gout is caused from being overweight and excessive alcohol consumption, it was no wonder most kings were stricken with gout. Though many treatments have been tried over the last 30 centuries, most treatments that WORK would be considered under the category of 'natural health'.

Unfortunately, this is the same thing that happens when a doctor treats gout. Because doctors will typically prescribe one of three types of medicinal treatments; Traditional treatments include Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs); Corticosteroids; and Colchicines. Though all of these treatments will numb the pain, none of the treatments will cure the cause of gout, high uric acid levels. To discover a list of major side-effects of traditional treatments, please visit our Home Remedy for Gout website. Shocked
