[YEA] I tried Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) for Gout after a long week of severe suffering during my first attack. I was also taking heavy doses of Ibuprofen at the time, and the first attack lasted about two weeks, so I was not too conviced, but I kept some organic ACV in the cabinet just in case since then.
I'm glad I did.
Another attack, but this time I started taking a shot glass of ACV with a glass of water with baking soda dissolved in it - to prevent any tooth degredation - several times a day, including during the night when I got up to use the toilet. I also took a normal dose of Ibuprofen with the first dose of ACV, but did not need it after that. All the same symptoms are there, but GREATLY reduced to a quite bearable level.
I've just added some Black Cherry Extract and a pinch of Celery Seed and Seltzer Water with the Baking Soda and ACV, to make a strange sort of soda-pop that is not too bad. I read about Celery Seed and Black Cherries on this site, so I figured I will give it a try.
The interesting thing is that a few days just before this attack I was craving Dr Brown's Cel-Ray Soda of all things, so I wonder if my body was trying to tell me something.
Anyway - My vote goes for Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) for Gout.
