Gout and Stress

by Terri
(St. Petersburg, FL)

I was under EXTREME stress last week, and I have been on a dietitian prescribed diet (1600 calories) since January, 2010 after my first gout attack. I started walking on the treadmill religiously 4 weeks ago at the gym 3-4 times a week at 30 minutes at a heart rate that is between 75% and 85% of capacity (per trainer) and it has helped me to stay gout free...in addition to my using BRAGG apple cider vinegar 2TB in 8 oz water upon rising every a.m. and drinking at least 2 liters of water/day.


I think the treadmill (as described above) has helped me to stay gout-attack-free...because this stress was so bad that I cried uncontrollably at the end of the week--after getting through the extreme week at work--for five hours.

I now enjoy sweating that 30 minutes, knowing that I'm burning fat and I'm controlling my stress.

I hope to continue this "therapy" for weight loss/stress control and hope it continues to keep me gout-attack-free!

Thank you, Peter, for this wonderful website! I always thank you because you have saved my life with this website! I truely believe it! You did more for me than any doctor could have--and I know many people feel the same way. You are my angel! Thanks!
