Top 6 home Remedies to Heal Gout
Dr. Axe introduces you top 6 home remedies to heal gout in 24 hours.
If you have gout attack, you have to stay away excess sugar, grain and processed, as well as meat products in your diet.
1. Celery Seed Extract
Celery seed extract actually has been shown to decrease uric acid buildup in the body. You can buy the supplement or celery seed extract or celery juice
2. Black Cherry Juice
The No. 2 home remedy for gout is black cherry juice or cherry juice extract. Treating gout is one of the many health benefits of cherries. A study published in Arthritis & Rheumatism evaluated 633 individuals with gout who were treated with cherry extract over a two-day period. This cherry treatment was associated with a 35 percent lower risk of gout attacks. When cherry intake was combined with allopurinol use, a prescribed medication for gout and kidney stones, the risk of gout attacks was 75 percent lower.
Cherry juice, then, has very similar benefits to celery juice: It reduces inflammation and uric acid buildup in the body. If you just add celery and black cherry juice to your diet, you will see very fast results in getting rid of gout.
The third thing you can add is nettles. Nettles is a powerful anti-inflammatory phytonutrient, and you can buy it in tea form.
4. Fish Oil
No. 4 on the gout remedies list is fish oil. Now, fish oil doesn’t act as fast as the first two, but over time, fish oil can decrease your risk for gout because one of the health benefits of fish oil is it’s packed with omega-3 fatty acids that reduce disease-causing inflammation in your body.
5. Proteolytic Enzymes
In terms of supplements proteolytic enzymes like benefit-rich bromelain can treat gout as well. Bromelain is found in the core of a pineapple, and it’s a digestive enzyme that’s been shown to help reduce uric acid and inflammation.
Magnesium is an alkaline mineral. That alkaline mineral can also decrease uric acid formation in the body, and studies show magnesium is an effective treatment for gout, particularly acute cases of gout.
