A surprising remedy for gout.

Posted , 1 user is following.

I am a 59 years old male and I have been getting gout two to five time each year for the past 10 years. I've tried everything. I recently discovered something that really works besides time and lots of water. My last flare up was one of my worst. This time in my big toe. I always drink lots of water and soak my foot in ice water. I even try to fast. I recently discovered my home remedy was sitting on my shelf for the last five years and I didn't even know it. I became a connoisseur of single malt scotch whiskey five years ago. Please note I'm a social drinker at best, usually beer. While soaking my foot I was surfing the net and found out that single malt scotch is a potent antioxidant, more than any other spirit and red wine. I was about three days into a soaking regiment when I discovered the benefits of scotch so I drank three ounces/shots in one sitting. For the next three days I continued to soak my foot in the evening for at least 2 hours and drank three ounces of scotch each time. I also continued to drink plenty of water. Each morning the swelling and pain was less. After the fourth day of adding scotch to my remedy list I was able to walk without a limp. Although I'm not excited to experience my next flare up, I am excited to know that I can thwart a full fledged flare up by drinking a few ounces of single malt scotch. I wish all of you the best and hope you find this works for you too. One final note. Please do not drink and drive.
