Polyarticular Gout

Polyarticular Gout is a form of arthritic condition that is the result of painful crystals forming in the joints. These crystals form due to increased amounts of uric acid in your blood.

How it Hurts

Acute Polyarticular Gout often affects more than one joint although it usually is in the lower extremities. It often only affects one side of the body.

Mostly seen in older people. The most common joints affected are the ankles, feet, elbows, wrists, and the hands.

It is often misdiagnosed as other more common arthritis disorders such as septic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, degenerative joint disease, and even hemiparesis. (according to Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases).

The crystals cause inflammation.

End Polyarticular Gout

Water cures can work to end your acute polyarticular gout. Go to The Water Cures Protocol and start right away.

If Water Cures Does Not Work

Cherry Juice for Gout

If you are one of the few that the Water Cures protocol does not work for in this regard, then try tart cherry juice concentrate. Specifically the cherry juice concentrate in conjunction with the water cure protocol.

Get some Montmorency tart cherry juice concentrate. Put two table spoons in a glass of water and drink down. You can do this twice or three times a day. Do for 15 days but then do not do more than two to three days on and four to five days off.

Unlike the salt (because of the minerals), if you exceed the three to four days without the rest period, you may lose the beneficial effect of the cherry juice.

One word of caution when buying, avoid the vitamin web sites. In our experience, they often have weaker concentrations. It is best to buy directly from the orchards. This will provide you better quality for the same price. You can find the tart cherry concentrate on the web. It's best to get it in glass bottles.

Note We do not sell or profit from promoting products from this site. If you would like to buy it, we do not sell it. Please do a web search for "68 Brix tart cherry juice concentrate, glass bottles" with out the quotes. The Brix is the concentration and 68 is the highest we have found.

Baking Soda

A second natural cure for gout is aluminum free baking soda.

Use 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda completely dissolved in a glass of water.

Drink it 2 x a day for 3 days.

To find why these work, you need to know the gout causes.

Causes of Gout

To find the causes of gout look no farther than the cause of high uric acid.

There are several culprits of high uric acid.

  • Hereditary (it could be in your genes)
  • Diet: Eating high fructose corn syrup, and table sugar can cause increased levels of uric acid.
  • Fasting and or rapid weight loss can result in elevated uric acid in your blood.
  • Drugs like thiazide diuretics can elevate uric acid by interfering with the elimination of uric acid.
  • But the most obvious and easiest to correct...

  • Unintentional Chronic Dehydration
  • Taking unprocessed sea salt on the tongue and then drinking water helps your body detoxify. More importantly, it helps your body to maintain its own balance. One of the balances we need is with the chemicals we produce and build up inside our body. Getting the water inside us helps maintain this balance.

    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.

    Note: Do you have CHF or Kidney Disease? Then.....

    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.
