Ted's Alkalizing Remedies

You have to hear this and believe this. I am a gout sufferer for 6 years now and had been hit every now and then. I've tried medication for as long as I can remember and got hooked to it everytime and the medication effect weaned down until it has no effect on me. I am into strict gout diet during an attack and it feels really being deprived but I choose diet rather than the horrible pain and suffering of a gout attack. Despite the diet it is horrible that I am still prone to an attack. I became desperate and willing to try anything...

I tried all kinds of cherries and berries, celery, seaweeds, procosa, supplements and at lot more but nothing really works for keeps until I ran to this website. I never had a second thoughts of trying ACV with mother ( at first I am quite at a lost with the "mother" term and realize this is the organic type of ACV ) and goes out of my way to seek and find this ACV with mother. To cut the long story short I got it tried it. I don't know what's the miracle behind it, I can feel the effect after 3 hours, I am 80% better in 24 and I am positive that in 2 days my pain and swelling will be gone. I am on my second day and really feeling good. I am really happy because of my new discovery. It's really unbelievable, a miracle cure. Thank you for all these information, it will help a lot of people who had been suffering from this ailment.

Before I forget, the concoction is the same 3 tbspn of ACV and 1/2 tspoon of baking soda and spruce it a bit with organic honey. Take this 3x a day and you'll see the miracle.

Regards, Arnel

Hey, I am back. It's been 7 days taking the ACV baking soda concoction and I am fully cured from my gout attack. Actually in my 5th day the pain and swelling were gone but decided to make this my daily regimen. I am at my best health today, I decided to continue my diet and the ACV and BS, I lost 4 pounds and my BP goes normal ( 110/80 ). I am dropping the BS for my daily sustenance but have it available on the shelf in case an attack. I feel great and indebted to this site. I am trying to share my findings with friends and families.

Hi Readers, It's been 4 months since my last visit here... I continue to do my daily regimen and so far I've been really happy I am for sure I found my Gout cure. It's been tested to work well for me. I can enjoy eating almost anything but I learn to do it in moderation, best of all there has been no attack. The only drawback is I am gaining my weight since I can eat everything now but I know how to work this out so not really a big deal. My regimen... 2 tablespoon of ACV 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 2x a day keeps the gout away.

Regards, Arnel

First, I very much want to thank Ted in Bangkok for his always helpful suggestions and recommendations. I have met Ted in person and he is an absolute wonderful source of information. I love watching Medical Doctors squirm uncomfortably when I state that I wish to use a natural remedy. They hate it! Must be money taken out of their pcokets by not pushing the big pharmaceutical company products.

I suffered from what a supposedly renowned Rheumatoligist told me was Wegener's Granulmatosis. Ha! It turns out I have tophaceous gout. I have been using Ted's Alkalizing formula for 6 months now and my gout symptoms, the tophi and pain are almost gone. I also suffered from very severe bile reflux. My bilirubin levels have always been very high. Ted suggested that I take 1 teaspoon of granulated lecithin per day. My bilirubin levels are now within normal range and I no longer suffer bile reflux.

I am about to embark on an H2O2 regimen to see how that goes.

Thank you Ted and Earth Clinic.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C works extremely well for gout. I get the vitamin C packets. Mix it with as much water as you like for taste. More water, less taste. Less water more taste. Your body can only absorb so much vitamin C at a time, so spread it out over the course of the day. Gout pain is usually gone within 24 hours. This helps the put the uric acid crystals in a solution so that the body can remove it. I also gave up red meat which has helped alot!

500mg of vitamin C, (i use the slow release type) taken for 2 months really does help. It increases the effectivness of the nephrons in the kidneys in removing uric acid. The only down side is that you do need to take for about 6 weeks before it starts to work.... But it works!

So I have tried Apple Cider Vinegar, Lemon Juice and Baking soda and all have had mediocre results for gout relief and uric acid reduction. With that said I have found the cure for me. I found a few reports that found a daily intake of 1000 mg of Vitamin C helps the body expel Uric Acid. For 6 weeks now, I have been taking 3-4 1000mg of Vitamin C and have never felt better on my joints. I had one flare up due to dehydration on a camping trip where my left knee was the target. Increased water intake along with the Vitamin C, flare up was gone in 24 hrs. ACV never did this. Pass it along. Vitamin C is the real deal for Uric Acid reduction as it helps the body expel excess uric acid.

New Study: Vitamin C May Prevent Gout in Men

The authors summary is:
"Given the general safety profile associated with vitamin C intake, particularly in the generally consumed ranges as in the present study (e.g., tolerable upper intake level of vitamin C less than 2,000 mg in adults according to the Food and Nutrition Board, Institute of Medicine), vitamin C intake may provide a useful option in the prevention of gout," the authors write.

Here is a new study paid for by Tap Pharmaceuticals company. They do not manufacture vitamin C or gout medicines according to their web site.

Thanks for everything, Deirdre! Love your site!

I've read so may of these posts and most talk about baking soda, cherries, or ACV as a treatment. This has been great advice for me but my MD gave me the best advice I've ever heard for preventing gout. It may not work for everybody but when I'm diligent about it, it works great for me. Drink a lot of water. It's free. It's good for reasons other than just gout prevention, and when I have a flare up, I can always trace it back to dehydration for an extended period of time. Drink more water folks. It helps move the uric acid through the body and keep it diluted. Staying hydrated keeps fluids moving through the kidneys which keeps them working well. Did I mention this is free prevention? For those that bad mouth MDs as always after the almighty dollar, keep in mind this advice came to me from an MD.

Hi Charm I believe in the water cure for gout. I have believed gout is caused by dehydration ever since reading one of the posts on this site where a seismologist said he always got gout whilst out on the field. He put this down to being dehydrated. I told my son who suffers from gout and he started drinking more water and it seems to help, but he loves the baking soda now also. Cheers Lily.

I have no doubt that drinking lots of water can be a cure for many things as our body absolutely needs it. However, and with all due respect to your very good suggestion, free water is a thing of the past. I collect rainwater and it is free but I still have to filter it due to the toxins in the air and good filters are not cheap. It is illegal to collect rainwater in some states and It gets very expensive to have a well drilled not to mention the necessary extras that get clean water to your house. Just saying.

After my last gout attack and starting my self on a PH balancing regiment with ACV and Baking Soda. During the summer months, I tend to buy a lot of filtered bottled water (not distilled). One day I was reading a label very closely and they state that this water has added potassium and sodium bicarbonate to replace the minerals lost through sweat. As a benefit, the ph is 9. So for those looking for a portable bottled water to help with disolving uric acid, Essentia touts increased alkakinity for health. The same ideal that Ted preaches. It helps me maintain a healthy PH when I can't added Baking soda to water. For more info.

Hi, I also have Occasional gout. For many years I tried several different medicine pills. Only one worked novomethicine and the pill is worse than the gout! I found a natural cure to gout thru a friend. Drink gallons of distilled water! The distilled water works like reverse osmosis on the gout and within a few days of drinking only distilled water, the gout symptoms disappear. works for me, wonder if anyone else might want to give it a try! Thought I might pass this on.

I agree. Distilled water DOES help immensely! It's the only thing that I drink when having a gout attack!

hi there. I've just been given this website address, by a work colleague. I, too, suffer from gout (mine usually flares up - once, in a blue moon! )..and working, as a computer engineer, I'm on my feet a lot!

I've been reading some views - regarding water, as a cure. I'm interested..cos, I drink a lotta water (bottled ). when you say "distilled" - what do you mean, exactly and also, where would I get it from??

thanks, Steve.

I've had some bad bouts with gout. Anyone that has never had it, can't understand the pain associated with it. The best way for me to describe it, is it feels like you just broke your foot, ankle, or BIG TOE and now someone has put it in a vise and is tightening it in a slow torturous fashion. Most of the time before I get an episode, I will get an ever so slight "twinge" of pain, warning me that I had better start drinking copious amounts of WATER and lay off some of the things that have caused attacks in the past. But after its been a while between attacks, I'll sometimes forget exactly how excruciatingly painful it really was and not heed the numerous warnings, and before you know, it sneaks up from behind you, taps you on the shoulder and hits you right between the eyes!! (or should I say Big Toe) And says I told ya I was com'in. So all in all, listen to your body and drink plenty of WATER.

I am a field geologist, and a few years I started to develop severe gout-like symptoms in my foot. These symptoms generally occurred after working in areas where I tended to get overly dehydrated (desert or tropical environments). I have found that massive hydration (drinking 2-3 liters of water over an hour or two) tends to almost immediately (within a few hours) reverse my symptoms. Hydration generally keeps me gout free, and when gout does occur (very rarely now), it is the gout "cure" for me. It sounds almost too simple (and cheap) to be true, but it works for me.
