Gouty ArthritisNatural Remedies for Gout
If you are looking for natural remedies for gout, you have probably had it more than once. More people are turning to natural remedies because the pharmaceutical solutions just don't work at preventing future episodes. Sure, the drugs will help the pain and swelling, but when you get a second or third or fourth attack, you are back to square one.It's a build up of uric acid crystals inside a joint; most often the big toe, but any joint can be affected. The joint is visibly red and swollen and the slightest pressure (even that of a bed sheet) can cause excruciating pain. It's known as the Disease of Kings because of its association with rich foods like wine, beer, fatty foods, and red meat. Unfortunately it's not as clear cut as that, as some people have high levels of uric acid and eat those foods and never get a symptom.

If you've suffered more than once, natural remedies for gout can help you. Natural remedies can decrease your overall blood acidity (which will naturally decrease uric acid levels), help you reduce pain and swelling, and most importantly, teach you how to prevent future attacks.
