    Gout is a condition where uric acid crystals build up in the body.

    This can happen in the area of the big toe and cause a lot of pain.

    Our foods contain purines; some foods are higher in this than others.

    The doctor may place you on a lower purine diet (of which they will usually provide you a list of foods to avoid. There is also medications that can lower the uric acid in the blood

    Here an alternative way to cure gout?

    I have seen this at the produce section of our local Wal-Mart. There is a section there that has many organic juices such as black cherry, cranberry, pomegranate, etc. Try them.

    There is no permanent cure for gout, but the much can be done to manage the pain of an acute attack, lessen the duration of an attack, and prevent future attacks.

    Pain and other symptoms of an acute attack can be managed with high doses of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Corticosteroid drugs may be injected directly into the affected joint. Patients usually notice an improvement within a few hours and completely recover within a few days. Treatment is most effective if it begins as soon as possible when an attack occurs.

    If NSAIDS do not control symptoms, the doctor may prescribe colchicine. It can be given by intravenous injection or by mouth. When taken by mouth diarrhea is a common side effect. Colchicine is most effective when given within 12 hours after an acute attack begins.

    Lower doses of NSAIDs and colchicine, along with lifestyle changes, may be prescribed to prevent further attacks. If attacks continue to occur even with these medications and lifestyle changes, a drug to reduce the body's production of uric acid, most commonly allopurinol or probenecid, may be prescribed.

    Alternative or Complimentary

    Alternative and complimentary treatments for gout focus on helping your body prevent and eliminate the build up of uric acid. These include:

    Doing everything you can to support the healthy function of your blood cleaners -- the liver and kidneys. The better they are working, the better they can clean your blood of uric acid and toxins.

    Drinking lots of fluids, especially water. Try to drink six pints or 96 ounces a day. Dehydration reduces kidney function and can lead to uric acid build-up. Slightly alkaline natural spring water may help reduce the acidity in your body.

    Reducing the amount of meat in your diet because meat is rich in uric acid forming components. Consider a vegetarian lifestyle.

    Eating plenty of raw fruit, vegetables, grains, seeds, and nuts. Cherries and strawberries appear to be most beneficial.

    Avoiding purine rich foods like anchovies, asparagus, crab, fish roe (caviar), herring, kidney, liver, meat gravies and broths, mushrooms, mussels, peas, beans, and sardines.

    Avoiding alcohol. Avoiding rapid weight loss while seeking an appropriate weight/height ratio. Excess body weight and crash dieting both can result in increased uric acid levels in the blood. Reduce any extra weight slowly and healthfully.

    Exercising regularly.

    Drinking black cherry juice. Black cherry juice, available at health food stores, may prevent attacks and shorten acute attacks according to claims from others with gout. Black cherry extract is also available in tablet form. This is not the same as cherry drinks containing low percentages of cherry juice or artificial cherry flavor.

    Experimental Therapies

    Science is trying to develop safer, more effective treatments for gout. For example, research is attempting to understand how enzymes break down purines within the body to better understand the role of these enzymes and gout. Research into the use of fish oil supplements to prevent gout is also being conducted.
