If you're a gout patient, then it's assumed that you're already knowledgeable about excessive bodily production of uric acid and the necessity to reduce dietary purines, so I won't discuss those points.
Get more cherries in your diet, but stay away from those cheap canned or jarred cherries. Fresh or frozen are best. Juice concentrate might be OK, but its pasteurization destroys some of its benefricial flavonoids, which supposedly lower uric acid and reduce inflammation. Blueberries and blackberries may possibly provide the same benefit.
Drink 10-12 glasses per day of water, in order to help flush out uric acid crystals. Cut back or eliminate alcohol consumption, because it interferes with the removal of uric acid from the body.
Exposure to lead can cause gout. So have your doctor test your system for excessive lead levels. Metallic toxins can be removed from the body with a number of naturopathic/alternative remedies . Ask your doctor about chelation therapy treatments (usually via EDTA as chelator) as an alternative treatment for heavy metal removal. Calcium citrate supplements and calcium rich foods help to eliminate heavy metals.
Dairy products almonds, broccoli, collards, kale, legumes, oranges, sesame seeds, and tofu are rich in calcium. Also try to eat as many chlorophyll-rich dark greens as possible to help remove heavy metals from your body. Sodium alginate from seaweeds and apple cider vinegar are known to bind heavy metals. Supplementation with the mineral selenium is another way to reduce heavy metal load. Sulfur rich vegetables such as onions and garlic help to remove heavy metals from the body too. Sulfur is also found in dairy products; most concentrated in whey protein. A cheap and convenient form of sulfur is the supplement MSM, which provides a second benefit of anti-inflammation.
To reduce painful symptoms, you should definitely be on an anti-inflammatory diet supplemented with various anti-inflammatory agents.
Anti-inflammatory whole foods :
cabbage, ginger, basil, strawberry, black tea, blueberry, turmeric, rosemary, clove, cinnamon, sarsaparilla, citrus fruits, pineapple, cold ocean water fish (especially wild sockeye salmon), garlic, flax seeds, red onion, brocolli, red apple
Anti-inflammatory supplements :
bromelain, citrus bioflavonoids (often come with premium vitamin C tablets), MSM, S-adenosyl-methionine (SAMe), alpha lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10, vitamin C, quercetin, astaxanthin, silymarin
Anti-inflammatory herbal extracts :
milk thistle, boswellia, gugulipids, fish oil, high lignan flax seed oil (both ALA and lignan), blue-green algae such as spirulina, borage seed oil, black currant oil, evening primrose seed oil, yarrow, olive leaf, marshmallow, fennel fruit extract, pau d'arco, hawthorn, white willow bark, licorice root, and cat's claw.
