1 Cup minimum per day dark sweet cherries, frozen are great, Blended, the finer the puree the easier they are absorbed. Mix with a little honey, milk, ice, even protein powder. The mix is your call, but I guarantee good results with minimum 1 cup per day.

My Dad and Husband were both over-the-road truck drivers, and both suffered/suffer with gout in their left foot (the one requires for all the shifting of an 18 wheeler). My Dad heard about cherries. Both Dad & Hubby now are retired and still have gout flare ups. Both now reach for a can of canned water packed tart red cherries (not pie filling), available in the canned fruit section of most grocery stores. Within hours both my Dad & Hubby have the same results - the gout flare up completely subsides. I vouch for the cherry cure. Only one time did it ever take 2 cans of cherries for my husband.

Gout is a strong runner in our family and for years an almost instant sure we all use is cherries. The kind you can buy packed in water in any grocery store. Make sure they are the water packed ones. Also dried cherries work but the canned ones seem to work better and faster. Usually one can is all it takes to cure an attack.

Eat a full can of tart cherries in one day. Gout will be gone in two days.

Cherries are another very successful home remedy to prevent gout. If you can eat fresh while in season, do so; otherwise, buying a can of cherry pie filling and eating the cherries will work also. It is up to you as to whether or not you want to rinse them off. Cherries are more successful than the RX medication Cholchicine for gout. Eat a can of cherries over a weeks time or so; eating just a few a day is all that is required. Simple and effective way to prevent gout "attacks" and faster at getting rid of gout if currently suffering.

Im 32, I had my first gout attack abt 5-6 years back, but after diagnosis , it was found that I had higher Uric acid content in my blood. So i took Uric acid suppressant tablets and after it went, i completly forgot about gout and now from last 2 months iam getting continuos attacks of gout. Mostly starts with at right ankle and spreads to the whole feet swelling and deep pain. I visited the doc again and he gave a 4-5 tablets and told me to take the Uric acid depressant. It was gone in 4 days. Now the doctor asked me to control my diet. Now i take very limited protein rich food like pulses. Now i reduced taking Non veg to once a week and that too very small quantity.

But the attack keeps coming back again and again. I cant excercise regularly and for the 4-5 days im like a disabled person.

I started taking cherries since last two weeks but now the attack has come again.

Now im planning to take apple cider vinegar and cherry.

Some one please tell how ACV, Cherrys are supposed to be used on a daily basis. Please help. Thanks Ram

I also take cherry juice. The tart cherry juice. I buy it at the grocery store in the juice aisle. 64 oz bottle is almost $5.00. I drink up to 1/4 cup per day. I've read on the internet that some people dilute it with water. It is sour, but I've gotten used to the taste. I drink it as is.

If I feel that 'twinge' later on in the day, I'll drink some more. So far I haven't had any more attacks.

When I first got this last fall, the first attack was excruciating. My foot and big toe swelled up, and I thought I broke it, and I couldn't walk. I had two smaller attacks, but nothing like the first.

I've also read that gout is hereditary. I don't recall my parents or grandparents saying anything about it, or perhaps it wasn't diagnosed. There also is no cure.

I've read some of the other posts, and good luck with your treatment of it.

Re Cherry and Cherry powder: I am experiencing numerous episodes of gout; apparently due to a "Low Carb Diet". I have started taking 1/2 cup of cherries per day. I have now switched to a black cherry (with other additives) and have found it under control. I have prevously used prescription drugs prescribed by my doctor. However, who wants liver toxic drugs! Cherries and it's associated powders work great!

I got gout a few years ago. My mother told me to try black cherries or black cherry juice. The cherries were out of season so I went to the health food store and bought black cherry concentrate. I used it for a few days (I did not mix with water, just took a tblsp twice a day and drank water with it). My gout disappeared. My father-in-law tried this when he got gout and it also worked for him -- now he takes it a couple of times a week to keep gout free.

I've had problems with gout for the last 10 years. I gave up on medicine after the one the doctor prescribed gave me terrible acid reflux. A few years ago, in the book "Nutritional Healing", I read about dark cherries being helpful. I tried buying organic dark cherries and it quickly brought me relief. Recently, I had a problem again and I couldn't find any dark cherries in season, so I ate dried cherries and they also worked well.

I had been put on meds for flare ups as well as preventatives to use in between. It is so painful and it takes the meds a few days to calm it down. When I tried the black cherry juice, i could feel it work the same day. It is definitely a great find. Spread the word. The pain of gout is horrible. Thanks for your site, it is great. Thank-you maryanne

Whenever I get a twinge of gout, or even have a full blown gout attack, I eat a couple of pounds of fresh cherries during a 48 hour period and drink copious amounts of water. Works every time.

I do the same thing and within 3-4 hours of eating a half pound of fresh cherries and drinking a couple of glasses of water the swelling goes down and the pain subsides... I can actually feel the swelling go down, its amazing... I have taken all of the drugs prescibed by doctors (NSAIDS) and it does nothing but give me a stomach ache and make me feel terrible (on top of the pain from the Gout attack).

I've gotten gout three times and each time it was cherries that got rid of it. It took about two days to work. However, considering how painful it is, I think I'm going to try ACV next time, and see if I can cut that 2 days down.

My gout was getting chronic over the years. Finally a number of periodic episodes switched over to a perpetual attack in my left foot that had lasted for 3 months. My Allopurinol and Indo-methracin drugs had lost their effectiveness over 5 years so I was depressed over the constant pain and doing little in my retirement years. I saw the article about cherries and picked up a pound of dried cherries from our local bulk food store. I had half a pound of cherries that morning and my foot was pain free for the first time in 3 months by noon. I went for a long walk that afternoon which was a big mistake because the underlying damage was still there and I had trouble getting to sleep that night. However, by the next morning the pain was gone and the swelling diminished over the next week. Whenever I get a flare up of gout I take my cherries and get rapid relief. Much better eating natural foods to get better as opposed to taking drugs that don't work.

- Tom
