Has your gout problem caused by purines rich foods? Then why are you still getting the gout attacks? Even you have completely stopped consuming those high purine foods.
Our body has an internal source of purine - your body will still produce purine every day.
More people in UK have gout and is increasing. But we are told from our Doctors to reduce are intake of purine rich foods and take tablets.
It’s more to do with nutrition or the lack off or even worse de-mineralisation. It’s NOT just gout, it’s all diseases that are increasing and for the young. As we are eating “non-food” but processed products.
Disease is when the body stops removing toxins, in our case uric acid.
I learnt the hard way as I was first told by my Doctor nothing to worry about, when I had a blood test with high uric acid levels (No body searched the internet back then for health) then I returned a few years later thinking I had broken my toe and was told I had gout and proscribed anti-inflammatory tablets. That I did not take.
So back to inflammation – our so called food nowadays causes inflammation. The purine rich foods also have very good nutrition. But bear in mind not everything is created equal and we should eat all food groups but in moderation, but keeping carbohydrates to a minimum or completely cutting out from all grains and sugars. Lowering inflammation. By eliminating all processed foods, factory farm meats and bad cooking oils. Instead eating more anti-inflammatory foods, like olive oil, flax seeds, ginger, grass fed animals.
Low fat is also not good, as there is no goodness.
Created equal – What we think we are eating as healthy we find it is not. Red meat from supermarkets (Factory farmed) will cause inflammation, where local farmed, cows eat grass, the meat will lower inflammation.
Eat more butter (raw is better). the specific nutrient that seems to prevent the buildup of uric acid is vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin that is particularly associated with the kidney. It is the fact that traditional peoples always balanced protein intake with plentiful fat intake as well as gelatinous soup broths. Thus, gout is better understood as a situation of excessive protein intake compared to the fats and gelatin intake, two factors which balance the protein intake. This is why people with historically high protein intake who also ate lots of fats and soup broths, with no refined carbohydrates, rarely if ever suffer from gout.
Eat more raw organic food. In the 1930’s Paul Kouchakoff, M.D. showed that if you ate a diet that was more than 51% cooked food, your body reacts to the food as if it was being invaded by a foreign organism. He further demonstrated that if 51% of your meals were raw, you would have no leukocytosis (no white blood cell reaction), so your immune system would not be activated with a false alarm. Today, we deal with so many immune system issues; we have to make sure that at least 51% of our meals are raw so we don’t overburden an already burdened immune system.
Drink clean, pure water. It is essential for health.
More Vitamin C intake -
Exercise and rest. By exercising 3 times a week and doing more walking will increase blood flow and circulation. Improves lungs to work more efficiently that help keep your kidneys functioning and improve your quality of life. It is also equally important to get your 8 hours deep sleep every night for your body to detox and heal itself.
