Gout is a very problematic type of arthritis. As you know arthritis is usually divided into two forms: Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis. Both are very painful and though doctors have found a way to distinguish one from the other, gout is somewhere in between.
Medical scientists have been successful with creating various treatments for arthritis. Gouty arthritis is not different, in that it appears when uric acid levels have built up in the bloodstream. This excessive uric acid will then form clusters or crystals at the joint sockets. This physiological manifestation is what we call gout.
As for the types of treatments that have been created to combat the pain, swelling, and debilitating nature of this disease is nothing to sneeze at. Millions of people in the United States alone account for a lot of pain and suffering from this disease. Some people try surgery, physical therapy, water aerobics, pain reliever medications and then there are those that just suffer with it.
You no longer have to suffer with the effects of gout. Right now, probably in your kitchen cupboard are home remedies that have been proven effective over the years. These are however not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration but then again they do not need it.
Here is what I mean…
Gout is nothing more than arthritis which presents as inflammation in the joints. Common gout home treatments include the use of food stuffs like, certain fruits, natural vegetables, herbal extracts, vitamins and minerals along with natural herbs to name a few.
