Removing Gout Crystals

Removing gout crystals needn’t be difficult. There’s an easy way that is totally natural and painless. Discover here how this secret natural gout remedy can help you get rid of your excruciating symptoms.

As a gout sufferer you need to do everything you can to remove the gout crystals that have formed in your joint(s). It is your body’s natural reaction to these that causes your gout symptoms of swelling, stiffness, inflammation, redness, heat and very, very great pain.

When you go to your doctor, you’ll most probably be prescribed medication. And these can work for most people, except that they can have some very bad side effects such as diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, stomach pain, etc., that put many sufferers off. So that more and more gout sufferers are seeking natural gout remedies.

And of all the natural remedies I’ve tried for my gout during my research, the one that I’ve found to be the most effective in removing gout crystals has been baking soda. No kidding! the stuff that you’ve probably had hanging about in your kitchen for ages, can help to alleviate your gout symptoms, and pretty quickly.

Otherwise known as bicarbonate of soda, this cooking aid has been found to be a very valuable gout home remedy. The key benefits are…

  • Helps to dissolve uric acid (gout) crystals to alleviate the excruciating pain you suffer during a gout attack.
  • Increases the amount of fluids in your body to help your kidneys process and flush excess uric acid out of your system.
  • Improves the solubility of uric acid in your blood which again helps your body to excrete it better.
  • Increases the pH of your urine in order to help lower the chances of you getting kidney stones forming.
  • Can be used in conjunction with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to help improve their capabilities.
  • How to prepare and take this natural gout home remedy…

    Add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to 8 oz of water and stir until the powder has completely dissolved. Drink a cupful before bed, one first thing in the morning, and then, one cup every three hours between meals. But don’t drink more than 8 cups per day i.e. 4 teaspoons of baking soda. Repeat this on a daily basis until your symptoms have gone.

    Also, change over to a low sodium, or better still, a salt-free diet whilst using this remedy because baking soda is already very high in sodium. Plus, if you suffer from hypertension — high blood pressure — then please talk to your doctor before attempting it.

    As I’ve said, I’ve found this to be great for removing gout crystals and relieving the pain of an actual gout attack. But we can’t take this every day, so what happens in between gout attacks? What’s to prevent further gout attacks causing long term joint damage and even kidney problems?

    This is where you need to do what I did and start to focus on the underlying issues such as your diet, your weight, lifestyle, medications being taken, underlying medical conditions, family history, etc. These are typical issues that can affect your propensity to get gout. And now that you’ve had one gout attack, your chances of suffering more are considerably higher.
