I've had 2 severe cases of gout and several other minor irritations from gout. In the first severe case I took celery seeds and the gout went away. In the second case the gout lingered as I tried various treatments from this site. Eventually, I tried more celery seeds and copious amounts of water. I drank a quart of water every 3-4 hours and a tablespoon of celery seeds for one day and the symptoms went away.
Celery seeds purchased from the grocery store are much cheaper than the pre-made capsules. I eat a tablespoon and chew them up. They have a bitter flavor that some people may not be able to tolerate.
I have had gout only once - thank goodness. But I made a tea of the celery seeds and drank it every night. My gout went away very quickly, maybe 4 days. This is probably not usual - don't know. It also seemed to help with the pain almost immediately. I continued with the tea for two weeks just to be sure. Now I am very careful about eating better so that I "NEVER" get it again.
I have had gout flare-ups from time to time. First time prescribed meds took over a week. Next time tried celery seed extract. It has worked every time since, in 2 days or less. When I feel it coming on, I just take 2 or 3 capsules. AM, noon, and night. It must say Celery Seed Extract 85% 3NB on the lable. Hope this helps!
Celery seed works great for gout. I take 1 capsule twice a day and rarely have anymore joint pain.
I'm 70 year old and suffered from occasional severe gout attacks. Someone told me to try celery seed but we didn't have any so I tried regular celery but without success. My wife picked up a bottle of celery seed and I started putting a 1/2 teaspoon on my salad everyday and if we didn't have salad for dinner, I put it in a small glass of vegetable juice. I started doing that last August and have not had an attack since then. The good thing is that I'm eating and drinking whatever I want without worrying about any of the symptoms that are experienced with some food and drink. Celery seed is available at the grocery store near the spice area and if you try it and it works for you, check in the big box stores where you can get a large bottle at a considerably lower price and it lasts for a long time. I don't know of any side effects and haven't experienced any.
