Gout is a form of arthritis that is associated with pain, swelling, redness and stiffness. Although it is a complicated form of arthritis, it is often ignored by a lot of people. Whoever suffered from gout knows about this terrible condition. With no treatment, it will heal in a week, but the condition will reappear for sure. If left untreated it will become chronic.
The main cause of gout is a build-up of uric acid in our blood. When our kidneys don’t work properly, they can’t get the uric acid out and a buildup is created. The uric acid in blood crystallizes and gout appears. People who drink more alcohol, who are obese and consume meat with a higher level of purine (such as liver, kidney, sweetbreads) are at greater risk of developing gout.
We will give you a recipe for homemade gout medication that has anti-inflammatory properties and helps in stimulation and prevention of the above symptoms.
Ingredients needed for this natural remedy are:
- 1-2 teaspoons of powdered turmeric
- 1 pineapple
- 1 cup of tart cherry juice
- A strainer

Start by removing the stems and cutting the skin of the pineapple. You can use the fruit alone or the stems too because of the bromein that they contain.
