Uric acid precipitates out of your blood and into your joints (especially the feet-your lowest point of circulation). It feels like needles of glass sticking into you and the joint becomes swollen, red and inflamed. Yes, I had a gout attack, once. I do not want to do it again. I don’t know what I did to stop it because this was a long time ago. However, I was in the process of changing and improving my diet so this may be the reason I’ve never had another attack. Gout is excruciating.
I’ve learned since that there are some things you can do to stop the attack. Our wonderful customers tell us this works, ½ cup at a time, several times daily will put a stop to the attack. Be sure it’s 100% juice. Celery Seed caps also work well. In addition, Devil’s Claw Tuber Caps fight the inflammation and help to dissolve the crystals. The cell salt Nat Phos #10 is involved in keeping uric acid from precipitating and can be used here.
