Treatment For Gout

By Aneron Kepasil

Gout, also known as acute gouty arthritis, is a sudden onset of joint pain. This happens mostly in the legs and feet. Gout occurs when there is a build up of uric acid in the joints. Gout causes fever, joint pain, joint redness, stiff joints, and can sometimes cause skin lumps which can leak a chalky white substance.

The use of cherries in alleviating gout can be traced back to a 1950 study conducted in Texas. 12 patients were observed after they were made to consume about a pound of cherries daily. It was discovered that the level of uric acid in their blood dropped to normal, they became less prone to gout and movement became less painful to them.

What is Gout? Gout is the result of too much uric acid that builds up in the body over a period of time.
The uric acid forms very sharp crystals that cluster around the joints causing the pain, inflammation
and tenderness associated with gout. Since gout is caused by the formation of uric acid crystals
that the body does not get rid of you need to know about some factors that might cause gout.

Beef, iron, and pork are also purine rich foods, but these meats do not usually cause gout if they are consumed in moderation. Game meat may also contain high amounts of purine, although most people do not consume a large amount of game meat as part of a modern diet.

Treating gout can be easy if the symptoms, genetic history, patients medical history are checked by the physician on time. If a person suffered two or more arthritis attacks, experiences severe joint stiffness in any one area like knee or toe, it could be a symptom of gout.

There have been concerted efforts in recent times to harmonize natural herbs and plants extracts in order to get rid of the cause of gout, achieve instant relief and permanently cure gout. These efforts gave birth to Goutezol, a produxt now in the market. It is arguably the best cure for gout.
