Gout Symptoms and Treatments: New Ways to Manage Gout

We will review the gout symptoms and treatments. Then we will review two treatments that work better than most. Both are holistic treatments for gout.

Gout Symptoms and Treatment

Gout is an indication that you have more acid in your blood than your kidneys can manage.

If you currently have gout, you are experiencing possibly years of buildup of crystals caused by uric acid in your blood. The crystals form in the joints and tissues around them.

The following gout symptoms and treatments are common for other conditions too.

The most often affected joint is the big toe. Joints of the fee, ankles, knees, wrists, fingers and elbows could also experience gout pain.


  • Warmth, pain and swelling around the joints, most often in the big toe, ankle or knee

  • Pain that starts at night
  • Light pressure, even from the sheets is intolerable
  • Joint movement may be painful and joint movement may be limited
  • Pain has a fast onset at night and then easing over the next few days
  • Skin over the affected area may feel itchy and peel
  • Skin around the affected join may be red or a purple hew and appear infected
  • Illness or surgery could cause the onset of a gout

Simple, Fast, Easy Gout Cures

Gout is the result of chronic dehydration. We feel that there are two kinds of dehydration, intracellular and extracellular. Gout is the result of extracellular dehydration. In our two oceans of water inside our body, the one out side our cells manages fluid balance.

When we have too much uric acid and our kidneys cannot process it, our bodies need to do something with the excess. Thus, our bodies make make crystals. These crystals in return cause pain.

The best way to resolve this is to dilute the uric acid in our bodies. The best way to get water in the body where it can be used is by following

End Gout with the Water Cures Protocol

By getting the salt into our blood when we dissolve it in our mouth and then drinking water, we get the water into and throughout our bodies. Once there, our bodies use it to dilute. clean and detoxify.

An additional benefit, the salt helps our bodies to the alkaline side of the balance.

When we are slightly alkaline, viruses, bacteria and even cancer cannot grow inside us. We can experience our optimal health when slightly alkaline.

Tart Cherry Juice

A second way to help eliminate the pain of gout is tart cherry juice concentrate. Simply add 2 table spoons to a glass of water when having an attack and for most, the pain goes away. For optimal benefit, do not take the cherry juice in water every day. It can be taken up to 15 days continuously then only 2-3 days on and 4-5 days off.

Our body needs to constantly be working to balance to be healthy. When it comes to nutrition, we need to be constantly filling and draining. Constantly eating the same food could cause us to become allergic to the very food we need to nourish ourselves.

Alkaline Water Cures Gout

The final of our gout symptoms and treatments is alkaline water. It works as well as the salt but not as completely. Once our body has become alkaline, things like inflammation are easily reversed by the body. Without inflammation, we have no pain.

The crystals are likewise believed to be dissolved. Since they were created by uric acid, an alkaline fluid will have the opposite effect, thus eliminating the pain and the cause of the pain.

Final Thought

Final thought...Those searching for gout symptoms and treatments or just the symptoms of gout, if you have experience with anything you have read here, please share your thoughts. Note, some are searching for the misspelled keywords gout symtoms, gout symtoms. If so, you are in the right place.

Note: Pseudogout, Lyme disease knee pain and MSIDS (Multiple Systemic Infectious Disease Syndrome....Lyme and other bugs combined) may not respond to the treatments here alone. Other treatments may be required.

May a pain free good health be to to you and yours.

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing Hydration and Eating!

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

The Great Salt Debate
Here is the Science

We are not promoting increased salt intake. We are suggesting taking salt in amounts appropriate to your bodies needs, based on water needs. Our needs are not one size fits all.

There is more to Water Cures than just salt and water. Diet, 50 to 80% raw food is best and exercise play an important part. And we believe the science is important too. Below is some of the research we found as to why Water Cures is the solution for better health.

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.
