    A story from a doctor I chatted with yesterday, which breaks down thusly...

    Gout is the affliction of kings. Zulu tribes noticed that only their kings would get the toe pain. The best warrior, wonderful shape, run for miles and miles, would get 50 wives who would bring him all sorts of gout-inducing foods, he'd gain weight and suddenly the pain in the toe. Must be a royal thing.

    It's nice to learn that I'm akin to a Zulu king. I have always thought as much, but confirmation is a sexy thing

    I have had mild gout the last few days, but woke up this morning in excruciating pain. I am so glad I found this thread - lots of great advice. I called my chiropractor and he does treat gout so I have an appointment tonight. I also started drinking more water and I am noticing a lessening of the paid already. Now that I think about it, I probably was low on my water consumption the past few days. I am starting P3 tomorrow so I really didn't want to have to start drinking cherry juice, avoiding protein and adding carbs. Having said that, I am going back to chicken and fish - will leave red meat alone for a bit and will also watch my intake of spinach and asparagus - and drink lots of water. I have had an outbreak before after losing weight. I'm not sure if it the rapid weight loss or low carb high protein combination that does it.

    Just an update - I drank tons of water yesterday and the pain and swelling reduced significantly. I also did see my Chiropractor who put low-volt electrical pulses into the area and then put my foot underwater and used ultrasound. That also helped greatly - but the main thing I think was the water. Woke up this morning with hardly any discomfort at all. Hope this helps others!

    Jason from Durham, Nc replies: "I had what I now consider to be a gout flareup. I had had a few episodes over the last few years - I'm 40 and work out alot, ski etc and I'm always on the go and I'm 6'1 225. I never made the connection that it was gout - but now I know. Recently I had a flareup that was some of the worst pain I've ever endured. Brutal - as many of you know. So - I was reading these comments in the morning of the 2nd day with my foot just throbbing. I had to run around my office all day and was just miserable. I was so desperate for a cure, and upset that I had to go through this again I was beside myself. Thank you all here so much for sharing your experiences.

    So I decided to do all the remedies at once and sent my staff member to the store to buy all of it - the ACV mother, alfalfa pills, dried cherries, tart cherry capsules and baking soda.

    I mixed 10 oz water, 3 TBS ACV (Braggs), and 1tsp baking soda and swallowed the alfalfa pill and the cherry pill at about 11am. I was walking up and down the halls of my office the rest of the day. At 2pm, I took another dose like above and by about 3pm, I knew something was up. I sensed the pain in my toe was not getting worse even though I'd been on it all day, and it even seemed to feel better than when I woke up and got out of bed that morning. I had read so many testimonials that I figured it would work but I still wasen't even sure I had gout. That evening I had another mixture before bed and laid around with my foot raised up - no ICE though. By morning I knew I was going to be better. By the evening of the next day, just about all the pain was gone. Thanks again!!

    What I noticed in the two months or so since is an improvement over my entire body. I have been doing 1 maintenance dose exactly as above every other morning or so and have never felt better. My joints are loose - everything was popping for the first few weeks which felt great. I must have so much buildup that accumulated over the years that it took 4-6 weeks to flush out. My girlfriend started taking it with me to be supportive, and it did wonders for her stomach problems as well. We both feel like we urinate more regularly and generally better.

    Here's another testimony:

    Robert from Weymouth, Ma writes: "I thought I had fractured my big toe on my right foot. It got worse as I continued walking on it. Swelling up and getting red. So I went to the emergency room and they asked me a few questions and they decided to take a few blood tests. What they found was my uric acid was very high. I had Gout! I'm 43. First time I ever had it. Never thought I would. They prescribed medicine. I thought, nuh-uh.

    Came to earthclinic. I found the apple cider vinegar "from Braggs" and "with the Mother ", baking soda, honey, dried cherry capsules, alfalfa capsules. I placed 3 tspns of vinegar into 8oz glass of water with about a teaspoon of baking soda (Hammer). Put honey in my mouth which made it easier to drink the concoction along with 3 capsules of both the dried cherries and alfalfa. Within the hour I felt the pain dissipate. Later that night I took same before I went to bed, and next morning the gout was substantially diminshed in pain by 50%. That morning I drank another serving, and during the day it got better and better. Basically over a period of two days the gout was completely gone. I am goin to continue taking this everyday just to keep my pH alkaline."

    I posted my gout issues in another thread but am joining here as this appears to be the official thread.

    No gout history in the family, 183 lbs 43 y/o male. Dropped 25ish pounds on the hcg diet and have been off for over a month. As part of going off the diet, I didn't keep up with water intake, but did keep up with a high protein, smart-carb diet, with lots of veggies, and plenty of red wine. BAM. Gout.

    But I found this.

    http://www.icuredmygout.org/

    The biggest thing I found helpful on this site: Baking Soda is your friend.

    Interesting snippet:

    3.34 Why fasting, rapid weight loss, and low-carb-high-fat diet trigger gout attacks. When the body does not get enough energy from carbohydrates intake, it "burns" more fat for energy and produce extra ketones in the process. Ketones (the cousins of the powerful paint thinner acetone) are very acidic. When the ketones level is too high in the body, they cause ketoacidosis and trigger gout attacks.

    I was in ketosis every day after day 2 of phase 2. Probably mid level on the test strips.

    I never even knew what gout was until I went on HCG. It got worse with every round. The first few rounds it was in my toes, but I did not know what it was, and it got worse each round. This time I also have it in my wrists. ouch! Off of HCG, I never have symptoms. just another one, of many, side effect to consider. Ugh!
