Gout free! 66 years old with a long time gout problem

by Pete

Okay, here goes. This is the truth and nothing but the truth (as best I perceive it). And I am not selling anything!

I had gout for several years, suffered a lot and did lots of research, and tried many alleged cures mostly to no avail.

About 3 years ago I was talking to an accupuncturist about gout and she commented that purine is a protein and the ability of the body (especially liver and kidneys) to handle protein has everything to do with uric acid build up and gout. For some reason this rang a bell in my head. I simply reduced my protein intake particlarly of meat, fish and shellfish. Instead of a steak I had half a steak, small amounts of pate (which I love), just one lamb chop (not two), half a pork chop, and small amounts of shrimp or fish. Result: End of gout.

I love wine and drink wine quite a lot. I have not observed any correlation between my wine consumption a gout symptoms

I should mention that I exercise more than I used to and eat more fruit and vegtables, and my life is low stress since I am retired 3 years ago.

Sometimes if I eat more meat, fish or shellfish than usual I feel some slight pain in my feet. I cut back on the protein and it goes away in a couple of days.

Yes I love a big steak but come on guys, is it worth it. Gout hurts. Modify your diet and live a better life.
That's my input.

A gout cure you might try.
by: Godwin Symons

Hi Pete. You go to a lot of detail about what to eat, what not to eat and what to cut down on. All unnecessary. If you were to take a drug called Lenamed (cimitedine) 400mg at the onset of a gout attack, it would be arrested within 48 hours. The Cimitedine is not a gout medicine, but it cures the problem without having to check what you eat or drink. Give it a try and let me know how it works. From Godwin. Email. [email protected]
