How to Prevent Gout?

I think Will Smith said it best when he said:

So if you stay ready, you ain’t gotta get ready, and that is how I run my life.

Translated into gout speak this means the following:


If you maintain a focussed and gout hostile lifestyle, you’ll never have to react, because everyday you’ll be preventing gout.

There are several ways of preventing gout so that you can achieve freedom from gout and a lifetime of never having to go through the pain that gets you crawling on the floor because you just can’t walk.

Believe me I’ve done this too often and stairs might as well be Mt Everest the chances I used to have of getting up them! Uric acid crystals and swollen joints really can become a thing of your past, rather than an ever present part of your life.

I learnt to stay ready is the best way of preventing gout rather than to try and put out the gout fire in my foot or my knee by suddenly switching my diet around and pounding tonnes of water. Instead of trying to eliminate purines in the hope that this would sooth my gout pain and get rid of the gout attack,

I learnt that to always be protecting myself against gout was key.

You need to be doing things everyday to help:

  • Build up your alkalinity
  • Improve your oxygen levels
  • Stay hydrated

Are all aspects of staying ready and maintaining that gout hostile environment so that you can’t possibly get swollen joints or let uric acid levels become dangerously high.


Specific things I do everyday builds up my alkalinity to such a great level that

  • I can really enjoy any food I want on occasion.
  • The best thing though is that it relieves worry from your life.
  • You know you are in control and that you are winning and can keep on winning.
  • You stop racing to beat gout because you know you’ve already won.

It all comes down to:

  • What you do
  • What you eat
  • What you drink
  • What you think
