Gout is not just a is toe pain that comes and goes, gout is a warning that sign that your body is undergoing acidosis and it needs serious attention before it develops into something more malicious such as cancer or other chronic diseases.

I have met hundreds of gout patients. I would say 90 percents of them are having the problem of hyperuricemia for at least 5 years or more before they engage a serious effort to search for the solution to their problem. Most of them have already developed secondary diseases such as kidney failure and hypertension.

The root of the problem is too much toxic acid in the body, uric acid is just one of them. If these acids are left to accumulate inside the body, it will slowly eat away the healthy cells and organs. As the pH of the internal environment of the body decreases, enzymes and other vital metabolism reactions cannot take place at the optimum rate. Cells either weaken or die off at faster rate and this will results in a vicious cycle which speed up the process of acidosis.

Taking some pain killers or uric acid suppressant pills are just temporary fixes for the gout pain. These kind of treatments will not improve the pH level of the body, once the effect of the chemicals is gone, gout returns!

You should not look for any magic remedy that can cure gout instantly, for there is none. You must first seek to understand the pathway acidosis so you can reverse the process. Once you understand the whole picture and how dangerous it will lead to if left untreated, you will slowly change your lifestyle or diet to return the alkalinity of your body.
