Cherry juice and Apple Cider Vinegar came to my rescue!
My beginning with gout started during a long recuperation from a foot fracture. It seemed like immobilization contributed to my bodies inability to deal with the purines effectively.
I am 56, female and I am active at work and play, walking 2-3 miles briskly at least four times a week, sometimes more. I am definitely not a couch potato or gamer as such but I do park at my laptop for an hour or two daily.
Stiffness in the fingers has been plaguing me for a while but the gout came in one finger one day after a larger than usual consumption of beer, for me that was three and three consecutive servings of beef. I don't eat pork so I knew it was the beef. I seem to be able to tolerate red wine in moderation. Beer not so much! I found this site and many other suggesting I try cherry juice and other remedies. It worked!
I have recently had a simultaneous flare up in the finger and ankle? It was next to severe but the treatment worked overnight and hasn't bothered me since.
The treatment isn't a license to consume these foods but it is a necessary remedy when I have been weak or making merry. I recommend it along with whatever else you can find that will help because drugs are not the answer. No sense whining about what we cannot eat or drink, there are hundreds of options of what we can have and I have found some. I have a lot of experience with this because I have food intolerances to wheat and dairy as well. Get educated. Get busy, drink water and change up your diet. But keep your remedies on hand when you fall off the wagon, and you will. Enjoy life pain free!
