[YEA] 1 for BS. Got my first run-in with gout 2 days ago (left big toe joint). I have had a couple of bouts with tendonitis in the upper arm and shoulder (rotator) in the past so after taking two 8-year-old naproxin pills over approx 8 hours, I settled in for about a week of slow recovery. However just before hobbling into the sack I borrowed some old baking soda from a friend's fridge and downed about 3/4 tsp in a glass of water. Slept good, and as I sit here writing this the following morning, I have just finished cleaning out the storerroom in my apartment. Swelling/redness 90% gone and 100% no pain.

[YEA] My daughter just called me to confirm that in 12 hours, 1 tsp. of baking soda to a 1/4 cup of water REMOVED (completely) horrible gout pain... So bad they "wanted to cut their foot off" last night. She said she probably put too little of water in the mix, but it worked for them. Shocked, they said there was NO PAIN this morning. Not sure if it took away the pain last night but I think so! I just sent her the link on gout remedies and ACV! That's the one that is really supposed to work. Thank you for this website.

[YEA] Had gout several times, suffered with it till gone. Was at the V.A. Hospital one day when it hit me and the Dr. Prescribed medication. Several days and no help. Found a web site that said to take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and glass of water daily. Two days and no gout. Really enjoy your site and am taking Apple Cider Vinegar for copd. Been on it for about two weeks and have cut meds down to less than half and breathing is much better with more energy. Thanks and hope this info helps others as it did me. Keep up the good work.

I took half teaspoon in a glass of water and the pain disappeared in minutes! Previously i couldnt even stand the weight of the sheet on my toe. I am yet to try acv and b.soda. but will do so' and report back. have also been suffering from a lot of joint pain and that is subsiding also. I am very grateful for the info on this site. I received no help from doctors who only prescribe dangerous drugs! L.Wilson NZ.

[YEA] I have had a few severe bouts of what was diagnosed as tennis and golfers elbow. After many weeks, my qulaiity of life destroyed and trying all the remdies of straps and ice and rest and even accupuncture I finally had to have cortisone injestion. This time round I decided to try 'Applied Kinesiology'. The diagnosis is believed to be gout. I was prescibed 1/4 Bi-Carbonate Soda [Baking Soda] in a small amount of cold water three times daily and 1/4 teaspoon liquid zinc twice daily. After 48 hours I definately have relief. I wondered if anyone has had experienced gout in an elbow. By the way the kinesiologist said "definately no AppleCider Vinegar".

[YEA] I notice that Black Beans has not been included in the list of remedies under the subject "Cure Gout", although it is included under "Remedies - Black Bean Broth"
I have personally used Black Beans to cure/relief my gout pains and with fantastic results, which are fast and long lasting. I have also recommended it to relatives who suffered from severe gout pains. Those who tried it can attest to its efficacy. Nonetheless, we must also be mindful of taking less of those purine rich food that cause gout.
Many people may have resevations about black beans because bean are know to cause gout. It is the skin or hull of the black beans which contains a very high level of anthocyanins that is effective in ridding gout pains.
As I am writing this, I have just cured myself of a bout of gout attack which recurred because I did not have gout pain for a long time and I simple became complacent and indulged myself in lots of red meat and purine rich food. After taking black bean broth the pain went off as fast as it came - like magic!.
Besides being a good cure for gout,
the skin of black beans are loaded with antioxidant compounds, which when taken regularly have also been shown to offer protection against heart disease, cancer and aging.
