First Gout at age 37, and an Indomethacin tip

by Steve
(New York, NY)

I originally saw a Podiatrist for minor foot pain, which he diagnosed as minor plantar fascitis and prescribed insoles. I tried the insoles in a pair of shoes that had previously caused me a lot of pain, had lunch with Sake at a Japanese restaurant, and that evening began the most painful week of my life.

It sounds like I probably would have eventually gotten gout eventually because of some genetic predisposition, but I feel like I could have avoided it for two decades or so. He's a terrific guy but I kind of blame my podiatrist for giving me those insoles, and myself for trying them with shoes that I knew hurt my feet already. But here I am, with full awareness of the incredible pain that the unfortunate handful of us go through. Most people have no idea.

Anyway, here's my tip that I learned with my second attack, just a few weeks after my first one. If you have Indomethacin, take the highest safe dosage you can the very second you feel even a slight twinge. My second attack is going so much better than the first, and my doctor says it's because I caught it early and took the medicine.

Last time the indomethacin did virtually nothing for the pain - only lying down in a hot bath could bring any relief - and the attack went on very painfully for almost two weeks. But last time I only got the medicine after it already started getting pretty painful. It really does work as long as you get out in front of the attack and take a high dosage up front.

Good luck to all of you. I wouldn't wish a full-blown attack on anyone.

What is Glutathione? Google It!

Glutathione is your body's master antioxidant. It is a small protein produced naturally in our cells when certain vital elements are present. It functions as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and an antitoxin and is a major defense system against illness and aging.

Our glutathione level actually indicates our state of health and can predict longevity. Although there are more than 70,000 published papers on the beneficial effects of glutathione replacement, it is still largely ignored by mainstream medicine.

In the near future the significance of glutathione will be widely recognized because it has the ability to boost the immune system and fight off the damage of free radicals on the cells.
Modern research has shown that individuals who have low levels of glutathione are susceptible to chronic illness. Decreased levels of glutathione can be brought about by continual stress upon the immune system. As we now know, a lowered immune system can bring about illness and disease. This is a ferocious cycle. While you need glutathione for a productive immune system, a weakened immune system hampers the production of glutathione.

Glutathione has been shown to decelerate down the aging process, detoxify and improve liver function, strengthen the immune system, and reduce the chances of developing cancer. Glutathione also works to help improve mental functions, increase energy, improve concentration, permit increased exercise, and improve heart and lung function - just to name a few.

As we age, and expose our bodies to stress, chemicals, pollutants, and average lifestyle habits, we begin to lose energy, vitality, mental alertness, and more. Most of us are aware that there are consequences for our actions; however the danger lies in the fallacy of believing that you will start taking better care of yourself tomorrow.

Dr. Robert H. Keller, one of the worlds leading scientists, dedicated 10 years of research and development in creating Rob Keller's glutathione boosting formula to assist the world in its quest for a higher level of health.

Out of all the biological processes that Dr. Keller could have focused his attention on, he chose to investigate a way to naturally optimize the bodys production of glutathione. Glutathione may not be well-known outside of medical circles, but your body relies on its function every single day.

Discover how to boost glutathione level in order to strengthen your immune system to fight off diseases,conditions and illnesses like: Gout, Lupus, Cancer, Parkinsons Disease, Alzheimers, Fibromyalgia, AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and many more.
