Natural Gout Prevention
Well, where do I start?
I had my first gout attack when I was about 23 years old and I suffered from gout for about a decade all together. I had gout attacks in my toes, ankles, Achilles, knees, calves, wrists, ribs. But then if you’ve been suffering from gout for a few years you know as well as I do that it doesn’t get any better, but in fact it just gets worse.
I was living in Korea teaching over there and one day I met and fell in love with my beautiful wife. We got married and then a few years later her brother got married to a Korean traditional medicine doctor.
After many talks and A LOT of gout treatment in this oriental way, one thing hit me and that was the emphasis on not reacting to gout but learning how to prevent it. I wasn’t being sold a drug, I was being treated for a problem.
While western scientific medicine is very efficient for most things, it is extremely hit and miss for gout and that just struck me as odd. My sister-in-law was always emphasising not medicine but how to look after my body so that the gout couldn’t get a toe-hold on my body.
My final gout attack was actually two attacks; one lasted 4 weeks, then after 3 days of being `better’ I had another attack that lasted 6 weeks! I took the meds and they didn’t work. I avoided purine rich foods and that didn’t work either.
That was when I realised I had to do something because it was obvious the meds and the standard advice from internet world wasn’t working!
I think what I realise now, as I look back I kind of excused away my gout attacks and explained them away as being because of this or that or the other. I was acting more like an addict who won’t admit they have a problem than someone that understood what was happening.
I owe my sister-in-law a lot because she opened my eyes to the fact that reacting to gout is not only an expensive and embarrassing way to live, but it is also totally unnecessary.
So I got studying gout. I studied and studied. After all I was a teacher so I was very aware of the value of education!
It became obvious that to naturally prevent gout you have to understand it. As soon as you understand it fully then it becomes very easy to never suffer from gout again.
So I decided to continue with the skill I spent 12 years perfecting – teaching. Only this time I’d teach people how to treat their gout and prevent gout for good.
Have a great day!
