Barley Helps Gout

Taking Barley helps Gout?

Throughout my studies in Gout cures I have come across the amazing abilities of Barley.


Whilst Barley can help our intestines, it also regulates our blood sugars, supplies high fiber, and lowers blood cholesterol and contains selenium which is a form of antioxidant

Barley originated in Ethiopia and Asia and was used as food for humans and for livestock.

Ancient civilizations used Barley and Barley water for medicinal purposes.

Hippocrates, Galen and Sydenham supported and wrote about the use of barley water and barley bread as beneficial for treating Gout.

Containing Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin E, and the seeds contain insoluble and soluble types of fiber which helps reduce cholesterol.

In 1997 the FDA approved the Barley Health claims that it was beneficial to heart disease risk reduction.



Barley comes in a variety of forms such as:


Seeds
Flakes
Flour
Grits
Meal
Juice
Green Barley Powder
Barley water
Barley Grass




The benefits to aid Gout and Gouty Symptoms are:

High in fiber, which helps reduce uric acid

Appetite suppressant which helps reduce Weight Gain

Acts as a Diuretic so aids flushing uric acid out of the body

Acts as a coolant to the body and also a febrifuge which aids in fighting Gout chills and fevers.


Barley has also been known to be beneficial to Arthritic pain, kidney stones, joint pain, mucus cleaning, fighting colds, enhancement of Bowel movements, has been known to aid in animal arthritic conditions, and asthma.

Ancient Aztecs used barley as a drink.
150 grams mixed with 1.5 liters or water boiled, then left to stand until cooled then re-boiled and cooled again then added lemon and sugar.

It may be worth looking at a product called 'Barley Gold' as this seems to be a very good Barley product .

Remember always seek the advice of a medical practitioner before taking any medicine or herb.
