Baking Soda

[YEA]  Hello Fellow Earth Clinic Followers -

Well, this was our second time since finding the baking soda cure that gout has reared its ugly head in our house.

I wrote in on it last time, but since it happened again, and we had just as AMAZINGLY AWESOME results - I wanted to write in again to revalidate the effect it had on my husband.

On Monday my husband started out with a pain in his foot. He was gimping about, but went to work - not telling me. He came home early, knowing it was the dreaded gout.

I started him on the 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda in 8 oz. of water immediately. One dose that afternoon, and one more before bed.

Gave him another dose the next morning, and then noon.... by evening his symptoms were receding.

Amazing! Normally this would be over a week long battle... And we now have it down to well under three days. It never did turn into the complete HELL it usually does either.

I believe that the trick is to catch it IMMEDIATELY. We could have caught it a few hours earlier than we did, but still, it was before a complete explosion of redness, heat and swelling. We know the warning signs now.

When in doubt, down a glass of water with 1/2 tsp of baking soda in it - do NOT wait for it to get ugly!

[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 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]   Baking soda works, the gout is somehow associated with ph and the baking soda will neutralize it. I have had severe gout where it will attack both feet altenatively and I need to crawl on my knees to get anywhere. I've had it spread up into my wrists with intense pain. I even have passed stones through my urine and experienced terrible pain. If u wanna get rid of gout drink baking soda and water. I don't know how much. 1 glass with a spoonful of baking sode u will see results within the hour.

Bentonite Clay  

Posted by Tim W. (Cullman, Al) on 03/11/2016

Gout is lead poisoning- whether intrinsic, thru dna, or maybe YOU inhaled lead fumes from leaded gas tanker drivers to bullet production and even making sinkers for fishing. Fumes solidify in the lungs n goes thru the bloodstream, then to the BOTTOM of every joint, and of course, the bottom of the whole structure- the feet! Calcium Bentonite Clay is a chelator of lead and has no problem with the blood/brain barrier.

Bicarbonate Soda and Liquid Zinc

[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".

Black Bean Broth

Posted by Andrew (Singapore) on 01/24/2009

[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.

[YEA]  I love your site. Bless you for having it. After reading just about all the suggestions I have been eating blackbeans that I cook from dry and freeze in small containers about a cup or so. Whenever I feel a gout attack coming on I just thaw out a small amount and eat. I don't even put anything in the blackbeans like seasoning or stuff. It seems to work for me.It is kinda amazing. I also have been doing the ACV and also the pectin capsules (and they are cheap). All these things I learned from your site. It has been about 8 months now since I stumbled upon your site. I thank you sooo much. I hope this will help someone else. I also stay away from certain foods- I have an inkling it might be mercury that activates it so I do not eat anything with spirillina which is in a lot of health foods, I think it caused one of the worst flare ups I ever had, and tuna, salmon or other fish that might contain mercury. I do eat fish though like trout, catfish and yes oysters. And I drink coffee like crazy but only black coffee. I do one thing that I haven't read on your site and that is vitimins from New Chapter called Zyflamend-they are kinda expensive-$22 or so and I'll only take them when I feel an attack coming on. They may or may not help because it might be the ACV, pectin capsules (3-6 a day) and my blackbeans that are working. I am just making sure that if they are working I do not want to not take them. I eat cherrys but don't really seem to benefit from them. Can I thank you one more time for your website. Thanks and I would like to thank the wonderful person that wrote about the blackbeans.

[NAY]  Hi, Firstly I wanted to express my gratitude for this website, it's fantastic! I just discovered it and am eagerly trying many of the remedies for weight loss and my father's gout. I was excited to read the information about the black bean 'juice' and quickly made a batch for my father as he has been suffering from gout on and off for about 2 months. The day after I made the concoction, he came down with gout. We promptly tried the remedy, infact I had him drink 2 glasses, and unfortunately today it has worsened and swelled up. I feel terrible. Reading about ACV, I will TRY to get him to take some w/ honey - unfortunately I think that his trust in me has probably deteriorated - rightly so I guess. But I'll keep you posted. Also, can you give me any other information as to what foods may cause gout, I've checked so many websites and composed a list for my father - who is avoiding the foods as best as he can, but the gout still comes back on the weekly basis.

Hi there, I just read about your fathers gout getting worse after taking black bean broth or soup. That could be due to the fact that black bean contains anthocyanins which also contain flavonoids. When the body breaks down flavonoids it produces uric acid. This is the enemy of gout.

[YEA]  My hubby got a serious gout attack recently. For the 1st time, he actually felt the throubing pain near the spin area. He though he has developed kidney stone and was worried. Swell subsequently developed at his toe and reaslied that it is another gout attack. Went thru the net for some remedies and chance upon this web site. It is hard to get cherries in Singapore and it is really expensive as well. Tried the black bean soup and the swell did went off very quickly. The next day, the swell was gone and walking was an ease. Hubby also drank 2 glasses of ACV with honey twice each day( morning and night) and the attack did not relapse. He was able to exercise after 3 days. During the same period, he did eat some protein rich food and the attack also never relapse.This is unlike previously when he was down with gout attack. For the previous attacks, he need to keep to a protein free diet even with medication.He takes a long time of more than 2 weeks to recover even with injection and pills. ' Now he is drinking ACV faithfully for preventive and packets of black bean are in our kitchen for any emergency.Hope this is useful for the sufferers out there

[YEA]  Black bean broth helps speed clearing up pain due to gout.When I was a kid I often heard that black beans cooked with pork bones help strengthen the legs. But fearing that black beans will aggravate gout, I avoided black beans. Dennis's article convinced me to try black bean broth discarding the beans.Now I drink it as coffee or tea and make a black bean drink at night when I want to. The flavor and taste is great. Adjust your preference - 2 handfuls of beans for 1 cup(300ml)

[YEA]  I get really severe gout attacks sometimes, usually in my knees, but at times I can even feel the uric acid crystals forming in my finger joints, wrists or elbows! I know that cherry juice, blueberry juice, pomegranate juice, etc (which all contain anthocyanins) can eliminate uric acid from the blood and is much more effective than colchicine which merely stops the production of more uric acid in the liver. But colchicine is also very damaging to the liver, and liver damage is the origin of gout in the first place in many people (or kidney damage in others). After moving here to Taiwan, the manager of a school I was teaching in informed me about black bean broth. Unlike the various juices mentioned above, black beans are CHEAP and are easy to find in local markets and to keep around the house. A close look at the black bean broth shows that the black color is really a dark red. Yes, black beans contain anthocyanins, that group of pigments which range in color from blue to red to almost black. In an emergency, you throw a cup of black beans in a pot of water and boil it and as soon as the water color turns dark, you can get some broth, cool it and drink it. This remedy takes only a few hours to eliminate the crystals from the joints, but the damage to the joints may take up to two days to heal. It is good to prepare some of this amazing healing remedy and freeze it in case of a sudden gout attack.
