Gout and baking soda

by Maurie Kellander

I have been to the emergency room twice in the last year with gout attacks in the right big toe. A couple weeks ago was the last time. I had two shots and indomethacin with no effect in the emergency room and was sent home with colchicine to take every hour and indomethacine 3 times a day. I did that for a day and got relief but had the worst diarhea I ever had for a day. Some days later the problem came back in a more mild form. I heard about baking soda and tried it and got relief after about three doses. The next day I took one dose and have had good results. The drugs have serious side effects also. Possible internal bleeding diahrea etc. Last year I got a stomach ulcer from the medication I was given. I felt no ill effects from the baking soda. At this point it seems like a miracle solution. It seems if taken occasionally it is less risky than the drugs. Caution is advisable though. Make your own decision. I mentioned it to a drugest and they didn't mention any dangers. Consult your doctor for possible problems.

Instant cure for gout
by: Anonymous

It was christmas eve when gout started to flare up. Prednisone was prescibed and the directions of takint it up. After taking 4 tablets, I still have to spend christmas in bed, in the confine of my bedroom. At around 9:00 pm of the twenty sixth, I turn on my computer and search for gout treatment. I read from of the forum that baking soda is a home remedy. Desperate, I tried it, a glass of water and just a pinch of baking soda( did not do the suggested dossage). After 4 hours, I WAS ABLE TO WALK.
