I know another treatment for gout. I discovered it when my contracter came over with his finger swollen from gout. I told him that their was a cure for inflammation but the FDA wouldn't let people know about it because the pharmaceutical company was putting too much pressure on them that they banned in America. I told him that they let pets use it though and I bought some for horses and it was called DMSO. I ask him if he would like some on his finger and he said yes. The next day he said it took his pain away. We put more on and the next day it was half the size that it was.
