My first gout "Attack" was so incredibly painful. At 2:30 am. I phoned for a taxi to take me to the A&E, being wheel chaired in by a concerned taxi driver. I told the nurse I thought I had broken my toe. One look, and she said! You have gout .Told me to take painkillers, and see my G P, and was sent home on crutches. Doctor gave me drugs that my body strongly rejected, so I went to the Health store, where a VERY knowledgeable and a person said Bromelain 500.mg, and freeze dried Cherry capsules, would solve the problem,,,,, and they did,, thank goodness.
I always keep these two products in stock, and at the first tiny twinge. start the treatment. I am just recovered from a 5 day flare, but have NOT been incapacitated at all .
Just wanted to share my Gout cure with anyone who could benefit. First, I have tried EVERYTHING for years and a have truly found a regimen that not only cures accute attacks, but has prevented additional attacks for the past two plus years.
1. Bromelain: Daily dose of 4 X 500mgs @ 1000 GDU's per 500 mg. For accuet attacks, 10 X 500 mg. capsule.
2. Water. At least .75 gallons per day.
3. Omega 3.6.9 blend: 4-7 capsules per day.
4. Coffee: Yes...it sweeps away Uric Acid, no kidding.
I no longer have to be obsessive about what I eat, though I do avoid most red meat and only have beer one in a while. I am a 36 year old, athletic male with a family history of gout, and first got it at age 32.
This really works, better than ACV/cherries, or what3ever. Bromelain is the dominant player in this regimen. It is amazing. Hope this helps!
