What is Gout?
If you’re experiencing a gout attack, you may not even be asking what gout is. Rather, you’re probably thinking something along the lines of: what did I do to myself? That’s the way it was for me anyway. (which is why I’m The Gout Killer!) In fact, I thought I had twisted my ankle but I couldn’t remember doing it.
You’re actually on the right track if you’re asking what you did to yourself instead of asking, what is gout? The reality is, all that gout pain you’re experiencing right now . . . you did to yourself.
Demystifying Gout Symptoms
Gout, otherwise known as “gouty arthritis” is a medical condition usually characterized by recurrent attacks of acute inflammatory arthritis — a red, tender, hot, swollen joint. That sums up the signs fairly well in medical terms, but I sum it up like this: IT FRIGGIN’ HURTS!
Most people twist the “what is gout thing” all up by talking about purine rich foods, uric acid crystallizing in the joints, and eating too much red meat and drinking too much alcohol. Those are just components – not the whole story.
What it comes down to is this: the kidneys can’t get rid of the uric acid that the body is making because they are too busy trying to deal with the toxic acidic overload from a lot of other sources.
You are a lifesaver!! I have been struggling with this gout attack in several areas of my left foot since before Easter. I followed your guidelines and got some relief within a couple of hours. After four doses of baking soda water and lemon water I am about 95% clear.Your program is going to make a huge difference in my life.
Thank You, Thank You!
A kidney is an amazing organ, and it regulates the pH of the body. When you keep filling your body up with toxic acidity from:
- Foods and drinks
- Breathing poorly
- Breathing poor-quality air
- Exposing yourself to weird toxic chemicals both from breathing and what comes in contact with your skin
- Metabolic acidity that you create by living all stressed out all the time
… then the difficult sorting out of uric acid is just one more assault on your hard-working kidneys!
So the answer to “what is gout?” lies in the lifestyle you’re living. Ask yourself:
- What am I eating today?
- What am I drinking today?
- Am I breathing as well as I could be?
- What’s in this air I’m breathing?
- What am I putting on my skin?
- What am I thinking today?
You’ll start to get a whole new perspective about gout symptoms and causes – and it will change the way you go about your day. These are especially good questions to ask yourself every day, because as soon as you get over the gout attack you’re having now, you’ll stop thinking about gout altogether . . . until the next gout attack hits.
+ Remember! When you ask, what is gout? . . . just understand that gout is a result of poor choices in diet and lifestyle and the consequences are compromised kidney function.
