Gout, Inflammatory Arthritis in Men


The Foundation receives continual emails concerning gout. If this is you, you are not alone. According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III, 1988-1994, an estimated 5.1 million people in the United States suffer from gout, and it is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis in men. Gout affects approximately 3 times as many men as women, and men are more likely than women to have gout at all ages. It's also worth noting that there is also some evidence that the prevalence and incidence of gout appear to be rising.

95% of people diagnosed with gout, have, what is in effect, a self-inflicted problem with purine metabolism. Fortunately, this responds quite well to the Baseline Program. Certainly, Essential Relief and cetyl-myristoleate (available all over the web) can provide short term relief. But to truly correct the problem, you need to do the whole program, including dietary changes (reducing protein intake), detoxing, cleansing the liver and blood, and raising pH. You might also want to pick up a supplement of Cherry Fruit Extract (available all over the web) that can help neutralize excess uric acid.

    I was introduced to crippling gout, like many, after being introduced to a statin drug (Lipitor). Beat it the first time with ACV, copious amounts of raw cherries and strawberries, but it returned with a vengeance, even after lowering, or eliminating purine-rich foods. Repeated the regime and it went away. When it came back again, I looked deeper and was lucky enough to come across the 1971 Vitamin paper ""Observations On the Dose and Administration of Ascorbic Acid When Employed Beyond the Range Of A Vitamin In Human Pathology by Frederick R. Klenner, M.D., F.C.C.P.
    Along with lowering, or eliminating intake of purine-rich foods and going alkaline, I began a mega regimen of crystalline Vitamin C. Besides all of the benefits, I haven't had a gout bout since!

    My father suffers from gout he has found some relief by taking Ion Detox Foot Spa treatments. He said he especially notices the difference these treatments make if he takes a treatment at the onset of a gout attack, the duration and severity is greatly reduced. This treatment helps to remove the acidic toxins from the tissues as well as raises the pH level to a more alkaline state.
