9 Natural Ways To Fight "Gout"

Here are Dr. Shafran's natural approach suggestions for leaving Gout behind you rather than in your joints!!
Nutrition:
1. Achieve and maintain an ideal body weight.
2. Eat fresh, unrefined, and unprocessed foods. Include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, soy, beans, seeds, nuts, olive oil, and cold-water fish (salmon, tuna, and halibut).
Eat unsweetened cherries (canned, fresh, or frozen). Cherries lower uric acid levels and can prevent gout attack. Blueberries, blackberries, and other deeply pigmented berries are also helpful.
3. Eliminate purine-containing foods, such as organ meats, shellfish, brewers yeast (beer), bakers yeast (baked goods and bread), anchovies, sardines, herring, mackerel.
4. Avoid alcohol, animal fats, red meat, poultry, sugar, dairy products, refined foods, fried foods, junk foods, and caffeine.
5. Drink 1/2 of body weight in ounces of water daily (e.g., a 150 lb person would drink 75 oz of water).
Supplements:
6. Quercetin - Take 200 to 400 mg daily between meals. Quercetin inhibits uric acid production.
7. Bromelain - Take 200 to 400 mg daily between meals. This enzyme found in pineapples is anti-inflammatory. For best results, take with quercetin.
8. Vitamin E - Take 400 IUs daily.
9. Flaxseed oil - Take 1 tbs daily.
