How water cures gout is common sense.
The water you drink and electrolytes you take are going into your body. The body transports the water and electrolytes to the cells. The cells among other things, eliminate waste products. One such, the buildup of uric acid. The uric acid when it build up, causes the crystals that becomes gout.
If you take a stick and stir the bottom of a pond, the water gets muddy. If you take the same stick and stir the bottom of a creek, the water may get muddy but will soon clear up. Stir up the bottom of a brook, It will be gone in seconds. Stir up the bottom of a river, you will never see it.
Our bodies do not need rivers of water. We do need a daily flow of water for optimal health. We also need electrolytes to help transfer the water to the insides of our cells.
Proper hydration of the body helps prevent the build up of crystals that lead to the pain.
Gout, a painful form of arthritis, is the build up of excess uric acid that result in crystals that cause pain in joints, most often the lower joints and especially the big toe.
What Gout Can Do to You:
In addition to the big toe, gout can affect the:
A gout attack can be brought on by stressful events, alcohol or drugs, or another illness. In many instances, certain foods increase the possibility of having an attack. Early attacks usually get better within 3 to 10 days, even without treatment. The next attack may not occur for months or even years.
Many have found that they can enjoy foods they had to avoid once they started the water cures protocol. We are all different in our weaknesses and strengths. The one commonality is we need water and we need electrolytes. Once we provide those basic needs, our bodies function better and we have the best quality of life possible.
Geek Gout Science
Everyone knows uric acid forming into crystals is the cause of the gout pain.
What you don't know is why salt works to eliminate gout.
When the uric acid unites with sodium, it forms sodium urate.
Since sodium urate is not needed by the body, it gets rid of it.
The concentration of sodium urate is 4 times greater than uric acid which has an acidic pH of 6.3. Uric acid is 20 times less soluble than sodium urate, uric acid will precipitate first (change into a crystal form).
Since the sodium urate is more easily suspended and will not precipitate like sodium urate, the body can more easily be eliminated from the body.
