Gout

Sunday, March 26, 2017

Looks like I may have had my first gout flare up. First available doctor appointment is Friday. Cutting out beef, seafood, alcohol, caffeine and fruit juices and cutting down added sugar. I know I need to cut it out, but I am going to add raw honey to my tea, for now to wean myself off this comfort eating binge I've been on.

I hate feeling sorry for myself!

    Hope the gout settles down for you. As RETIREDGMA states... black cherries. Drink a bit of black cherry juice.. although don't overdo it, it's full of sugars. Good luck.

    I had what I thoight was gout. Never went to the doctor but asked my son who suffers from it! He suggested eating black cherries. He also siggested making a tea out of tumeric root and ginger. Doesn't taste that good but I boiled a cut up tumeric root and a piece of ginger up and boiled it for 20 mins. I keptmthe,liquid in the fridge and added half a cup to a cup of lemon gonger herbal tea. My foot hurt for about a week and gradually improved.
    Hope,this helps!
