My husband came home from work and took his shoes and socks off- then he called me over to look- on the top of one foot was this dark purple rash just above his toes- it was about 4”x3” and had very small bumps mixed into it! Scared me and I remembered that many years ago he had been diagnosed with gout (it was soooo bad) but had no more issues since then. I had no idea if it was gout or a bug sting (he is allergic to most bug stings) or athletes foot or what???? So I immediately came to Earth Clinic and researched foot rashes!
I saw that apple cider vinegar had the most cures- but then I remembered that L- Orthinine would help eliminate the uric acid -if it was gout! So I immediately started him on the L-Orthinine at 3 Capsules of 500mg first thing every morning and a foot soak of ACV and a bit of water to cover his foot- at first it seemed his rash became more purple- but within 2 days of the ACV foot bath it was about 1/2 the rash as when we started. By day 4 it was 90% gone and he ask if we could let it heal on out from there. We are very grateful for all the articles from Earth Clinic.... Wish you had a book, with everyone's experiences mentioned!!! Thanks.
Gout relief achieved by bicarbonate of soda and lime juice.Take about half a teaspoon of bicarb on an empty stomach with a little lime juice and make sure the fizz has totally gone before drinking. First thing in the morning is good. Take another maybe before bedtime. I had suffered for weeks and I kid you not, within a day there was a major improvement and even after an hour I could walk better.
After only one dose my foot was nearly back to normal.
Baking Soda and Vitamin C treatment for Gout.
My brother could not walk yesterday. I did not know what was wrong. The doctors stay it was arthritis, yet he got no relief. I came to this site, I used the baking soda first 1/2 teaspoon with 1/2 glass of water. Then I gave him 2 packets of Vitamin C that dissolve in water. Within half an hour he was able to walk. I will be giving it to him on a regular basis.
I have been using Lithium Orotate combined with high doses of Vitamin C to control my gout attacks with great success for the past year. Twice a day take 2,000mg of a good Vitamin C supplement along with 10mg of Lithium Orotate and you will control your gout.
Pick your pokeberries (poke sallet) next fall. Great for all joint pains. My brother had a bad attack of gout and hobbling with a walker. Said doctor told him he would have to live with it because he had nothing else to try. Picked him a bag of ripe pokeberries and carried to him. Had a little trouble in talking him into eating asparagus also, because he said the doctor told him it was bad for the gout. My reply was it was bad for the gout but it was good for him. Two days later with about 15 to 20 pokeberries 4 times per day and plenty of asparagus, he was walking without limping, without pain and without the walker.
When you have a bumper crop of pokeberries, just dehydrate the excess that you can't use while fresh and ripe. For those who want to get more sophisticated and make a pokeberry tincture or extract, just google "how do I make a herbal extract or tincture. Basic rule of thumb is two most common diluents is alcohol and vinegar. Fresh herb is equal parts of herb to diluent. Using dehydrated herb use ratio of 2 parts diluent to one part dehydrated herb.

In 1998, I awoke in mid-summer with my big toe on fire. Excruciating pain with a sheet covering it, but I could put a shoe on and walk. Went into the college nurse who diagnosed it as gout. Ok, so I wasn't an overweight, drunken smoker. Instead 110# and yes, probably partying a little too much. There was a health food store next door, so chatted them up. The lady gave me the name of a reflexologist. Made an appointment, and to this day just remember begging for a wooden bullet. While he worked on my feet, I could literally hear the crunching of uric acid. It took a few sessions, but well worth it. PLUS stopped eating fried foods, American cheeses, processed foods. 30 years later (where did the time go?) not another episode. I still have reflexology done a minimum of 2-3x a year to keep any uric acid from building up, although there isn't much with the dietary changes.
