An intensely painful disorder, gout is the result of a buildup of uric acid in a joint. When our body encounters purines, a compound it can’t absorb, it creates uric acid to break them down. Normally uric acid is passed out of the body through urine, but in some cases the body produces too much uric acid and the excess builds up as sharp, needle-like crystals in the tissues around the joint, eventually penetrating the joint and causing severe pain, redness and swelling. Gout most often strikes at the base of the big toe, but any joint is at risk, including ankles, thumbs, wrist and elbows.

Excess uric acid production can be a result of many factors, including overconsumption of alcohol and taking certain medications such as low-dose aspirin and thiazide diuretics. People with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and arteriosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries) are also at risk for high levels of uric acid. Age and sex also increase the likeliness of developing gout; men tend to be more affected than women, especially men between the ages of 40 and 50.

Although conventional medicine for treating gout exists, diet and lifestyle changes are the best way to treat gout. Start by checking out these home remedies for gout.

Natural Home Remedies for Gout

Anti-Inflammatory Diet 

Changing the way you eat is one of the biggest factors in treating gout. An anti-inflammatory diet rich in fiber and essential fatty acids is best. Opt for whole grains, nuts and seeds, berries, soy products and fish. Berries can neutralize uric acid, and fish provide essential fatty acids necessary for keeping inflammation in check. Avoid rich, heavy and fatty foods that are high in saturated, hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats and oils or refined flour or sugar. Alcohol raises uric acid levels and should also be avoided.
