Gout is a common type of arthritis that occurs when there is too much uric acid in the system. Gout can be very painful and limit a person’s mobility. The following whole food products are potential natural treatments for Gout. Whole food alternative treatments are the methods that we believe are not only healthier than medication, but also to help the body use its own natural methods to heal itself.
Elevated levels of uric acid in the blood can be an indicator of poor kidney function, so start looking there. Also, in the case of gout the body does not produce enough of the enzyme uricase, which oxidises uric acid into a soluble compound. As uric acid is a by-product of certain foods, gout is closely related to diet. In fact deficiencies of certain nutrients can actually provoke an attack.
Body Balance may be very helpful, as minerals help to reduce serum uric acid and so do carotinoids. The protein from the seaweed is actually a complete protein that also helps to reduce serum uric acid. It is a form of protein that is low in purines. Uric acid production actually increases if essential amino acids are lacking. So it is not the protein as such but purine content that is the contributing factor.

AminoCharge would also help to address the lack of certain aminos, as it provides a complete spectrum of the essential amino acids needed. It also contains an enzyme complex which helps properly digest the protein.
TrueGreens would also be really supportive, as there are a number of different ingredients in there that have been shown to be helpful, including alfalfa (which is recommended supplementally with gout) and bilberry and grapeseed extracts, which contain powerful antioxidant compounds that seem to work specifically in a gout situation.
In terms of the OsteOmegaCare, the calcium and magnesium are always great stress reducers, and the glucosamine has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties that help to support the joint tissue. Both TrueGreens and OsteOmegaCare contain Omega essential fatty acids which are needed to repair tissues, aid in healing and restore proper fatty acid balance. An excess of saturated fats is often the cause of gout.
FlexeoPlus contains MSM, which has powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties.
A Colon Cleanse is recommended to relieve the body of its toxic overload.

Drink plenty of water as this promotes the excretion of uric acid—use anything other than straight tap water.
Eat lots of blueberries, strawberries and cherries as these neutralize uric acid.
Celery is wonderful, so drink celery juice and munch on the stalks as much as you can.
No alcohol, as this both increases the production of uric acid and also reduces its elimination.
Avoid any fried foods or oil that has been subjected to heat. When this happens the oil becomes rancid, which destroys Vitamin E in the body resulting in the release of increased amounts of uric acid. An excess of saturated fats is often behind this disorder—usually beginning somewhere in the past.
Extra Vitamin C also lowers serum uric acid levels.
Maintain a diet low in purines at all times. There is a pretty common list of high purine foods to avoid. These include all red meats and organ meats, meat gravies and broths, herring, mackerel, sardines, anchovies, all poultry and all shellfish, mushrooms, peanuts, any kind of yeast and asparagus.
