Gout or Gout Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory condition that is caused by the build-up and crystallization of uric acid in the joints and tissues (feet, knee, elbow, waist or finger), resulting in the person experiencing excruciating pain that last for weeks.

When our body break down purines from seafood, beans, fructose-sweetened drinks, beer, alcohol, organ-meats, fatty foods or processed foods, uric acid is produced as a waste.

We need our liver to convert uric acid into allantoin, a highly soluble metabolite that is easily excreted by the kidneys.

If our body is healthy and functional, our body’s organs and circulatory system will ensure that all wastes (including uric acid) will get discharged. As such, if we were to experience a gout attack, then it is logical to conclude that our body may not be as healthy or as functional as we think.

Medically, gout has been attributed to obesity, insulin imbalance, stress, lack of physical activity and poor diet. The reason why there is an increase in gout attack during the pandemic lockdown is that our body’s circulatory system, which is the logistical function of our body, is being compromised by the lack of physical activity and/or poor dietary intake.

During a gout-attack, pain-killers, steroids or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NASAID) may be prescribed by doctors to lessen both the pain and swelling, but medications like Febuxostat (Uloric) should be used with care as it has been linked to increased risk of death from heart diseases.

As such, it is never advisable for anyone to self-medicate with these pharmaceutical drugs.

While numbing the pain or reducing the inflammation can help make gout attack more bearable, they do not address the underlying health issues.

The traditional approach to managing, preventing, and reversing gout is focused on the way we eat, digest, discharge and how we take care of our overall health.

Limiting or cutting out the intake of purine-rich foods will obviously help but is it a real and practical option?

So what can gout sufferers do to manage, prevent or reverse gout?

If we moderate our diet and masticate (chew) our food properly, it helps to break our food down and reduce the stress on our digestive system, making it easier for our liver to help in converting uric acid into allantoin so that our kidney can discharge it from our body, provided our liver, kidney and circulatory system are functional.

Traditionally, quality dietary-supplements have been used to fortify our digestive system, liver and overall cardio health, so that our body has the vitality (energy) and the basic essentials to do what it is supposed to do.

Progressively, this will help gout sufferers reduce the frequency and intensity of gout-attacks, and even recover from it if they put in the effort to take their health more seriously.

As gout is a deficiency in our circulatory system, it is vital that gout sufferers eat right, increase their physical activity and get good amount of sleep so that the body can repair, rejuvenate and revitalize itself.
