4 Gout Myths You Probably Believe

Myth #1: Thinking that Gout is a lifelong illness

I’m shocked every time I hear a concerned person tell me in an almost accepting voice that they have gout “and that’s just life.”

You know what’s another part of life? Getting rid of gout!

I don’t recommend medications because of their harmful side effects, but any doctor will happily prescribe you meds that whilst they may contain your symptoms, they do NOTHING to actually cure your gout.

“Side effects of allopurinol include: numbness/tingling of arms/legs, easy bleeding/bruising, signs of infection (e.g., fever, persistent sore throat), unusual tiredness, signs of kidney problems (such as change in the amount of urine, painful/bloody urination), yellowing eyes/skin, severe stomach/abdominal pain, persistent nausea/vomiting, dark urine, unusual weight loss, eye pain, vision changes…” – WebMD

Of course to treat the underlying issue requires some changes, which we’ll discuss in just a moment. But the fact of the matter remains that gout is perfectly treatable, and yes fully curable.

So don’t let anyone relegate you to a life sentence with gout. You can win this war!

Myth #2: Believing that Gout is caused by uric acid

This one is a half-truth.

It’s a partial myth because uric acid is responsible for gout, yes. But it’s NOT true that uric acid in the blood equals gout. This is a key difference that helps us understand what the true cause of the issue is.

Did you know that it is perfectly normal for uric acid to be present in the blood? This is true for both healthy and unhealthy individuals.

It’s when the uric acid levels exceed a certain threshold that they become problematic. The general guideline is 6.5 mg/dl, in case you’d like to ask your doctor to run a test for you.

Scientists estimate that once this threshold is crossed for a sustained period of time, uric acid begins to spill over from the blood into the joint cavities, and begin an unhealthy process of accumulating in crystallized form.

This is as bad as it sounds. The good news is that the build-up takes an extremely long time before it causes painful swelling – we’re talking years.

Interestingly, the time of life when gout affects people depends on gender.

For males, the uric acid buildup process begins to happen after puberty, again assuming elevated uric acid levels are present. Because it takes many years to reach critical levels of buildup in the joints, men deal with gout issues in their late 30s or later.

On the other hand, the uric acid crystal build up in the joints tends to occur after menopause in women, meaning it takes them much longer to experience gout related symptoms. It’s not uncommon for a woman to be well into her 60s or 70s before dealing with gout symptoms.

It is important to remember that uric acid is a naturally-present waste product in the body, and your body is more than equipped to deal with it. Gout occurs when something in the body disrupts this status-quo, but thankfully this can be restored by providing the right trigger and the right substances.

Myth #3: Gout only affects the big toe

From the above we understand now that it takes a long time for gout to occur up in the joints. But not all joints are affected equally.

The uric acid crystallization process needs colder temperatures in order to occur. Therefore, it is usually the big toe that is the first to be affected by gout. However, gout can also occur in other joints, particularly those of the fingers and also the elbows.

Gout is considered a type of arthritis. It’s an especially painful type, which can cause swelling and redness around the affected area. However, as we’ve learned from myth one, this is a reversible illness and all it takes is nudging our bodies back to their previous balanced state.

Myth #4: Thinking that eating vegetables and other high purine foods increases uric acid production, leading to gout.

As you now know by now, uric acid buildup is responsible for gout-related pains. There is a misunderstood notion that purines found in vegetables and other healthy foods can turn into uric acid and exacerbate the problem.

It is true that purines can turn to uric acid, but studies have shown that the human body generally doesn’t do this with produce-based purines, except in emergency circumstances. It certainly wouldn’t overproduce uric acid leading to gout. In fact, many of these healthy ingredients are exactly what we use to help reverse gout all naturally.

“Limiting purine-rich vegetables intake for lowering plasma urate may be ineffectual, despite current recommendations” – Journal of Arthritis & Rheumatism

Going on some weird, restrictive diet is NOT the way to get rid of gout effectively.

Cure gout all naturally by getting to the foot of the matter

Now that you understand what gout isn’t, it’s important to know what gout is and how to solve it.

Quite simply, gout is an imbalance ailment. Uric acid is produced from birth, yet normally the body does a good job of getting rid of it as quickly as it is produced. Symptoms occur when an inefficient body over-stores uric acid where it shouldn’t.

Doesn’t it make sense then, that rather than masking the symptoms (as drugs do), you fix what has gone wrong?

After all, we’re not asking your body to do anything magical. We’re simply getting it back to its natural state. Is it really that complicated?

In The Gout Code™, you’ll learn how Okinawans have been curing gout for centuries, and how to use this knowledge to cure yourself of gout in 7 days or less.

“Besides holding the record for longevity and centenaries of the world, Okinawa is the only place where 80-90 year-olds live like persons 30 years younger. Ancient Chinese legends already called Okinawa ‘the land of the immortals’ ” – Indian Journal of Community Medicine

The process is both easy to follow and straightforward – it’s a fool proof way for anyone to get rid of gout rapidly, safely, and permanently.

Does it Really Work That Fast?

At this stage, you’re probably thinking that the program sounds powerful – but can it really work that fast?

I don’t blame you for being skeptical. Most people are. But have a look at the experiences of some of the people who tried the program:

Here’s an example from Mary Nolan, from Canberra:

I got your guide when I was suffering from a 13 day long acute attack that wasn’t getting any better even with high dose Advil and Colcrys. After doing your recommendations, I IMMEDIATELY started feeling better and the pain was completely gone barely 30 hours later. The Gout Code is a MUST HAVE for any gout sufferer.

John Hunter, from Texas, writes:

Dear Lewis, I wanted to send you a quick thank you email as your guide has saved my life. I had been plagued with gout for over 5 years and even though I’m just 41 I was feeling more like a 70 year old with the pain and lack of mobility. I had previously been relying heavily on Catafast to aid with the pain but it had started to cause problems with my stomach. Now I’ve been completely off Catafast and yet all the pain is gone thanks to The Gout Code. God bless

And Karl Johnson, from London:

Just 3 weeks of following The Gout Code and my uric acid levels are down from 9.8mg/dL to 5.9mg/dL – my doctor was astonished when he saw my results and said he never saw such a drop in such a short amount of time, even with medications!!! He said he’ll look you up as I gave him your details (hope that’s ok!)

These are just a few of the success stories – there are many at The Gout Code™ website.

How To Get Rid Of Gout

How To Get Rid Of Gout

Characterized by severe pain, redness and tenderness of the joints, gout can be a nuisance without treatment. The sudden attacks are not only very painful but tend to occur at night when you’re mostly helpless. There are several ways of dealing with gout:

Medication.

If your doctor has already diagnosed the gout, they’ll prescribe some medication to ease the pain and shorten the length of an attack. You’ll probably be given an analgesic which will help to  relieve the pain. Anti-inflammatory drugs are the most common medication as they prevent the swelling in the joints. If the gout doesn’t improve from 3-4 days, then you get a prescription for steroid and uric acid reducers. The main reason you’re having gout is because your body has high levels of uric acid. The steroids will help modify hormonal effect to repair the damaged tissue. While the uric acid reducer will help in reducing production of uric acid. You also have an option of getting nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs.

Home remedies.

Patients with chronic gout have the option of behavioral modifications such as exercising and diet to help decrease frequency of attack. Things you can do to prevent another attack include:

  • Avoid alcohol as much as you can but if you can’t, don’t drink more than 14 units a week
  • Exercise regularly but do it in moderation to ease off the joints. Aerobic activity for 20-30 minutes will help increase cardiovascular health.
  • Gradually get yourself into a healthy weight. Try not to do a crash diet, but ease into the weight recommended by your doctor
  • Drink at least two liters of water a day. Water helps to keep your uric levels low.
  • Place ice packs on joint when you feel it’s inflamed for 20-30 minutes, it will sooth the pain
  • When you’re in pain, rest the joint until the pain eases preferably on a pillow or soft surface
  • Avoid fatty food, sea foods and organ meat as they’ll increase your uric acid levels and that’s what we’re avoiding
  • There are certain foods and ingredients that will help you reduce your uric acid levels like ginger and lemon juice (you can swap this with water once in a while)
  • If you need to move around when the joint is inflamed, use a Cain so as to reduce the pressure you’re putting on the joint
  • Always remember to regularly take your uric acid reducers regularly even if you don’t have symptomsgout-food
  • Reduce or eliminate your sugar intake, gout is predominant in people who have excessive sugar intake. Make sure to read the ingredients of a product
  • Invest in high fiber foods such as fruits and vegetables as they reduce uric acid levels in your body
  • Be sure to look out for warning signs of a gout flare up and contact your doctor if the pain persists for more than three days

Gout can be cured by mostly changing ones lifestyle and eating habits. The medication helps a lot, especially with a sudden attack. However keeping these attacks at bay require a personal investment in the lifestyle choices you make.
