Last weekend, I took my husband to the ER because he was unable to walk on his ankle. He kept telling me about the horrific pain and knowing he didn't do anything to provoke it, I took him. After blood tests, it turned out to be gout. I was surprised because I honestly thought that happened when you're older than 45 or so. He's 36 and never had problems like that before.

They prescribed him Allupriol 300mgs and I just did not feel right about him taking a pill everyday. For years, I've used Earth Clinic for my ailments (kidney stones) and it always worked for me! I saw the post about ACV with honey and warm water.

I kid you not... less than 24 hours after taking him, the pain and swelling was gone!!! He was able to move with full movement of his ankle the next day. I was thrilled for him!

I warmed a cup of water with 2 tablespoons of ACV and 1 tablespoon of honey. He has been drinking it daily and he feels awesome! I know people wonder if these testimonials are true, this one is! Thank you for always helping those who want an alternative to a prescription, folks. It means the world to us!!!

I recently had right knee surgery and I was taking Tramadol for pain, a couple of days later the operated knee flared up with a bad gout bout, I was given Naproxen for that, 70% of the pain disappeared in one day, a week later, I got another attack but this time was my left knee, so painful that I had to go to the doctor for a shot, meanwhile I had to go to rehab for my right leg and having these gout attacks so frequently put me on a set back. I went three weeks and I was feeling good, back to therapy, I was making a great improvem until two days ago when in the middle of the night I woke up with a flare on my left foot, so painful that I could not even set the foot on the floor. I felt very depressed knowing that this flare was going to be another set back. I started looking at my diet which is low in purines, and just wonder what else I was doing wrong, then I came across with an internet posting about TRAMADOL and gout, the pain killer that I was taking and low and behold found the main culprit of these frequent flares of gout! It was then that I search for a miracle cure for gout and found this wonderful site.

I decided to try ACV which I already had in my pantry, at first I used 4 tablespoons with a glass of water and boy within 30 minutes the pain and the swelling started to come down that was around noon, at 6pm, I had another glass with 1 tablespoom of ACV and another one before I went to bed along with an Aleve otc pill (naproxen 220 mg) and today after a good night of sleep, the pain and swelling have decreased about 90%, I am able to walk on my foot again, took another glass with 1 tablespoon of ACV and I am filling so much better. I will continue the therapy with two glasses a day with 1 table spoon of ACV only, no more meds!

I am thankful to God and to the persons responsible for this site!

The pharms are doing more damage than good, nature is a better source of cures!

My maternal grandmother always gave us a glass of water with 1 tbs of ACV as kids and did not get sick as often as other kids! She also used for compresses and soaks either hot or cold depending on the ailment.

Apple cider vinegar with a small amount of lemonade has helped immensely with my gout.

I had no idea what was causing the pain in my feet. I've suffered with it for almost two years, until recently stabbing pains in my big toe caused me to research it. I had constant pain, on and off and my feet, and while sleeping. After finding out it was caused by gout, I immediately came to this site to look for a cure. I have only taken 2 shots of apple cider vinegar in the morning, for 3 days now, and I am amazed at my feet. The pain is gone and my feet are happy again, and I can walk! This morning I added a shot of lemonade and it made it much more palatable. I LOVE this website. It is my go to website whenever anything goes wrong with my body.

My son was a little angel sent to me by God to watch. He has Down Syndrome. He doesn't ever complain about anything. All he's wanted, in his life, is to be loved. He is now 43 years old, and he is still the same loving angel. I don't know when he hurts, because he won't complain. When he is in REAL pain, he makes a hurt face when he sees me.

I noticed he was limping in the morning, and after checking him, found out he was having a gout flair up in his left toe. I came on here, to earth clinic, to find out what to do for him. I gave him ibuprofin and 1tbsp ACV with 1tsp baking soda in like 6oz water 4 times a day.

It's day 3 now, and the redness finally went away, but it's still swollen a little. So I will continue giving him the ACV and BS. Thanks Earth Clinic!!

I've been taking ACV for a long time, and also give it to my handicap son for his gout. He hasn't got a flare up since I've been giving it to him. We take 1 to 2 tablespoons in about 4 oz of water twice a day, after breakfast, then before or after dinner. The trick to get it to taste OK, is mixing a pinch of salt in it. I tried many things but nothing work as good as salt for me. It just takes a little bit, but it sure makes the difference. I hope this helps you too. Bottoms up!

As for the gout cure, I have it also but I get it from Oranges. Anyway I found if you take 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and 2 tablespoons of honey, the gout goes away after 10-15 minutes.

It is the worst tasting thing ever and I have to sip the mixture but it does work. It may also be beneficial to take a tablespoon of the stuff every morning.

Update: Even though the Uric Acid levels have reduced but I have been told that the crystals from joints will take few months to leave the body. To reduce the inflammation caused by these crystals I am taking 0.6mg Chochicine twice a day. I have consulted a naturopath Dr in this regard as well as diabetes and choked arteries. Objective is to come off all medications and take natural stuff for cure. I will keep you updated.

I have gout in my feet from time to time. I found that if I took a paper towel or two and soaked them in ACV ..wrapped them around my foot then did the plastic wrap over it..put a sock on... in a few minutes the pain was gone while resting. Did the same overnight and had a reasonably pain free night..

A caution tho.. it does seem to dry out the skin and gets a little itchy once removed.. skin seems very soft and can be broken scratching so don't over do it.

Fellow Gout sufferers, It really works. I am currently suffering through a bout with the gout. It started in my right toe as usual but just when it was about to end it's two week stay it shifted to my left toe! I just couldn't take the pain anymore. I looked on the net for natural relief. I found articla after article praising ACV. I tried it. I can truly say it works. The taste while not good is worth the reduction in pain and duration. After just two days of taking two Tspoons with 8 ounces of water I am 80-90 better. I expect to be fully functional tomorrow! Wish I would have heard about this sooner. Try it. Try it. Try it.

I have used the Apple Cider Vinegar now since a gout attack in January and haven't had one since. At the moment I feel a sight stiffness in my toe, I drink a bottle of water with ACV in it and it works immediately.

Apple Cider Vinegar Dosage for Gout

The key is to increase the dosage to 4 tablespoons per glass of water with 1 teaspoon of honey 3 to 4 times a day. As per my blood work for uric acid it was 10(mg/dL) and it needed to be under 4.5(mg/dL). I am diabetic and have a stunt in my artery, so I take heart medication. I started with the above dosage once a day for the first day. Second day twice a day. Third day three times a day. Fourth day four times a day. Fifth day, I was able to walk. I maintained this dosage till the seventh day. Remarkable improvement. I hope it will help.

Update: Honey does not increase your sugar levels. I am diabetic. Also, I have built tophi(accumulation of uric crystals) on top of my both feet in a 1 inch x 1 inch area. This had caused localized swelling. I used a cold patch 2 to 3 times a day . The swelling reduced. I am still continuing to use 4 tablespoons of ACV with 1 teaspoon of honey and 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda 3 times a day. Just got my blood work for Uric acid and it has dropped from 10 mg/dL to 5 mg/dL. Target now is to bring it down to 3.5 mg/dL . I hope this info helps.

My husband has suffered with gout for years having at least a couple attacks a week. Doc gave him tablets that he doesn't take so this is what he does. He has a banana every day which has potassium and Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass of apple juice and since doing this on a daily basis for the last 18 months not a single gout attack.

ACV with clamato especially with the extra hot kind. Tasts like a bloody mary, I can drink them all day. Just adjust the strength to tast and you will want more.

I have had gout for 15 years and started the ACV about 3 years ago quiting all meds (Alopurinol). Good luck

I'm 40 years old and overweight. I'm a man, 6 foot 2 and I just went on a crash diet - lost 30 lbs in 6 weeks and was feeling really good. That's when I had my first bout of gout! What is this! I found out that a few relatives on my Dad's side had dealt with it in the past and I was livid that I had this awful disease! I'm a vegetarian and didn't know anything about gout. I had to ask my parents if our family had ever had it and to my surprise they did.

Anyway, to the point. I immediately went to any website to find a remedy. I don't like taking any medications and have never taken any drugs in my life. I wasn't going to start something like Colchicine at this point in my life. My first attack, hurts like the devil. I tore my rotator cuff 20 years ago and this pain is twice as bad! I had a serious back injury 10 years ago, and gout pain is worse!! My attack has been going on for 6 days now. I had to go to work, and used a cane. I get around really slow, and people feel sorry for me. Most of my friends don't know much about the disease.

So I'm fed up and last night I took 2 TSP of ACV with the 'Mother'. Mom had bought it 8 weeks ago for our cats. They say it's a miracle cure for cats with eye infections, so we had some in the cupboard. I woke up this morning and the pain was down 80%!!! Wow! So, I took another 2 TSP 10 minutes ago. I will keep you posted. It obviously works and will monitor the next few days. Next time I feel the twinge, it's right to the ACV! Thank God for this site - thanks people!!!

I have just heard of the power of blackstrap molasses in conjunction with apple cider vinegar (with mother as opposed to one deadened by pastuerising). I suffer from arthritis in the knees and have 2 teaspoons of the apple cider vinegar with 1 teaspoon of backstrap molasses in a glass of warm water that has had lemon juice squeezed into it. Do this morning and night. It was recommended to me by someone who no longer suffers from gout in his foot due to the efficiency of this concoction.

I'm looking forward to the same relief..
