Today’s third, and final, short gout question is home cure for gout.
Strange that you don’t get many people looking for “home heart surgery” or “home laser eye treatment”. There’s something about gout that makes us want to cure it at home.
Let’s face it, if your standard of gout medical care is the same as that described in some messages I get from disgruntled gout patients, then I don’t blame you.
But, you know, you should never look for a home cure for gout. Any gout cure, whether medication or herbal remedy, must consist of two entirely different, separate, distinct parts.
Not ONE cure for gout.
I have never seen any so-called home cure for gout that makes this distinction. The marketing men are happy to persuade you that all your troubles will be over, but never tell you why. Or how.
This is why you need two cures:
- Something to lower uric acid
- Something to relieve pain
For the first one, you can start with my previous post, natural uricosuric agent.
For the second, take your pick from herbal pain relief, natural pain relief, natural anti-inflammatory etc.
Just don’t confuse the two.
- Lower uric acid to below 6mg/dL and keep it there – the only way to get rid of gout.
- Take pain relief, usually anti-inflammatory, as you need it – may take a few months.
That is true whether you are looking for a gout cure at home, at your doctors, at hospital, or wherever you are.
That should tell you where to start looking for a home cure for gout. If it doesn’t, see the Gout Questions page for the quickest way to find out more information.
