How to treat Gout Pain Naturally
Gout pain usually manifests itself in the lower extremities, usually in the big toe. It's a very painful condition that often affects men, though women can also have gout. As a naturopathic doctor, my mission is to get to the root cause of an ailment. In the case of gout, it's usually indicative of kidney toxicity. It's very important to detoxify your system at least four times a year, at the change of the seasons.
I formulated VitaDetox for this purpose, it's easy-to-take capsules that are gentle yet effective. Another suggestion is Natural Cherry Juice, which has anti-inflammatory properties. You should drink 2-3 glasses of cherry juice during a gout attack. As a preventative measure, taking Fish Oil supplements will reduce the inflammation in your body. My Vita Fish Oil is effective, guaranteed mercury-free and tastes good. Taken on a regular basis, it reduces inflammation and therefore decreases your risk of another gout attack. I also formulated Vita Joints to ease pain and inflammation. Vita Joints contains a combination of Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM which help ease the pain of gout while the Bromelain helps clear cellular debris within the body, thereby reducing inflammation and increasing lymphatic flow.
Finally, during a gout attack, Castor Oil Packs are a great way to ease the pain. Simply take a cloth soaked in Castor Oil, lay it on the big toe and cover it with a hot water bottle for at least 45 minutes to feel better. The key is preventative, keeping the inflammation down and keeping our bodies free of toxins. That way, you can avoid painful gout attacks. Take charge of your health and learn about natural healing.
