Gout Remedies - is Acupressure an Effective Pain Relief Gout Treatment?

When suffering from the disorder, the pain relief gout remedies can offer can become one of the most important goals in your life. Though exercise is considered to be a great preventative for gout, it is neither a comfortable nor a practical method for relieving the discomfort that is felt at the time of an attack. Many people are lead to believe, therefore, that medications are their only options in this case.

  • Acupressure itself is a form of Shiatsu massage.
  • This type of massage is based on ancient Chinese medicine that uses the same concepts as the more commonly recognized treatment of acupuncture.


The primary difference between using acupressure and acupuncture for pain relief gout treatment is that acupuncture uses needles whereas acupressure simply requires the practitioner use his or her thumbs, fingers, or knuckles in order to apply pressure to the specific points, encouraging circulation to the joint or area affected by the gout. Writing this composition on Gout Sufferers was a significant contribution of ours in the world of literature. Make this contribution worthwhile by using it. :lol:

However, if you'd rather use a method that is not based on pharmaceuticals as a pain relief gout treatment, then you may wish to look into alternative and complimentary remedies such as acupressure. Maintaining the value of Gout was the main reason for writing this article. Only in this way will the future know more about Gout.

Essentially, Acupressure is based on the belief that there are around 2000 different points on the body that can be manipulated in order to affect the energy flow of the body. Each of the points is located on one of the body's 20 different meridians - the lines along which the energy flows. This energy - also known as Qi - flows between the surface of the body (where the acupressure points are located) inside until it reaches through the internal organs. Manipulating the flow of the Qi by using the pressure points can help a person to achieve an improved balance throughout the body and mind.

Before beginning any therapy, it is wise to speak to your doctor, since you will need to make sure that there isn't any existing condition that would stop you from practicing an alternative therapy such as acupressure. :lol:

Many gout sufferers report the following benefits when undergoing acupressure: - Pain relief, - Reduced inflammation - Increased circulation

When the Body Becomes Ill or is Injured, an Imbalance to the Qi Occurs

Acupressure can manipulate the flow of the Qi, directing energy to the imbalanced area so that better healing can be achieved. This can be very effective for releasing muscular tension and increasing blood flow to needy parts of the body - an essential part of pain relief gout success. Once the energy allows healing to accelerate, the balance of the body can be restored. Give yourself a momentary pause while reading what there is to read here on Gout Sufferers. Use this pause to reflect on what you have so far written on Gout Sufferers.

Blueberries ' Nature's Top Antioxidant Fruit:

Blueberries emerged as the top antioxidant capacity fruit in a laboratory testing procedure called ORAC - Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity developed by the USDA*. ORAC has become the definitive measurement of antioxidant capacity. James Joseph, Ph.D, Chief of the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging in Boston, is working with blueberries to examine their potential to help improve motor skills and reverse the short-term memory loss that comes with aging. "The blueberry has emerged as a very powerful food in the aging battle," said Joseph. "Given the possibility that blueberries may reverse short-term memory loss and forestall other effects of aging, their potential may be very great."

Purine Gout Diet - Anti Gout Diet Tips

Gout is a common, painful form of arthritis. Gout is a condition in which the body has a problem in the handling of uric acid. Uric acid is a waste product that naturally occurs in the body. It is normally flushed from the body by the kidneys through urine. It causes swollen, red, hot and stiff joints. Gout occurs when uric acid builds up in your blood. Men are more likely to get gout than women are, but women become increasingly susceptible to gout after menopause. Gout usually attacks the big toe however, it also can affect other joints such as the ankle, heel, instep, knee, wrist, elbow, fingers, and spine.

Some cases, the condition may appear in the joints of small toes that have become immobile due to impact injury earlier in life, causing poor blood circulation that leads to gout. It occurs more frequently in countries that have a high standard of living. Approximately one million people in the United States suffer from attacks of gout. Gout affects up to 500,000 Canadians. Men who develop gout usually do so between the ages of 30 and 50. Women are more likely to develop gout after the age of 60. The most common type of medicine used to treat an acute attack of gout is nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. :o.

These Drugs Help Reduce the Pain and Swelling of Joints and Decrease Stiffness

If you think that diet acts as a trigger for your gout attacks, changing your diet may help, but it is important to talk to your healthcare provider about choosing the right diet for you. Gout diet prevention consists of a prevention diet low purine or modified purine diet may help gout improve. Gout diet prevention puts and emphasis on dairy products, vegetable protein and water intake and a decrease in high purine foods. A low-purine gout diet is often prescribed for individuals with gout. Purine is a compound that is mainly found in animal protein which is metabolized to uric acid in the body.

Did you know that there are numerous natural gout treatments that have been shown to be effective in many natural health studies?

Not Already Doing So, You Should be Drinking Half Your Body Weight in Ounces Per Water

There are thousands of benefits for drinking water, and a natural gout remedy is one of them. There has been a gradual introduction to the world of Uric Acid Crystals Joints projected in this article. We had done this so that the actual meaning of the article will sink within you.

Five 'Do It Yourself' Gout Treatments Treating Gout can be as simple as watching your diet, taking the right supplements, neutralizing the uric acids, drinking the right fluids or even doing gout-free exercises. The treatment could depend on what stage your gout is in. Here are five 'do it yourself' gout treatments. We were a bit tentative when embarking on this project on Gout. However, using the grit and determination we have, we have produced some fine reading material on Gout.

Fact, Gout Remedies Have Been Around for Thousands of Years

For instance, gout was once known as the disease of kings because so many kings complained about the arthritis of their big toe. And if you think about the royal disease, it is no wonder that kings had gout considering that gout is caused by fattening diets, alcohol consumption and is genetic.


2. Supplements- Many of our customers have found success in supplements. For instance, Vitamin C is the wonder vitamin. Because it lowers uric acid levels, vitamin C can be used for prevention as well as during an acute gout attack. During a gout attack, 1,000 mg per hour is helpful. For prevention, 500-3,000 mg daily would work. Using the intuition I had on Cure Gout Naturally, I thought that writing this article would indeed be worth the trouble. Most of the relevant information on Cure Gout Naturally has been included here.


Forums the pain killers you use to treat your gout! Finally, get a full nights sleep! And naturally treat gout in the next 2 hours... guaranteed! Discover the step by step natural treatment at Natural Gout Treatments Website. :roll:

3. Apple Cider Vinegar- Apple cider vinegar both ingested and applied topically can help treat gout symptoms. In a glass, combine two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with two teaspoons of raw honey and drink once daily. The vinegar will balance your pH levels to lower your uric acid levels. Topically, combine one cup of vinegar with 3 cups of water and soak your toe. ;)

5. Vitamins- Did you know that gout sufferers typically are deficient in vitamins A, B5 and E? With that said, you could go out to your local health store and buy these vitamin supplements or you could buy 'miracle' gout fruit!

Why Gout is Naturally Treatable In most cases, to treat something, you look to see what causes the problem and eliminate the cause.

The Case of Gout, Uric Acid Crystals Between the Joints Cause of Gout

While you sleep (usually), the gout flare-ups are caused by settling uric acid between the joints in the big toe. Your bed sheets will often feel like a ton of bricks and the smallest amount of pressure will feel like you got your toe slammed in a door.


Be Gout Free in Less Than 2 Hours If you live within 30 minutes of a store, then you can cure gout naturally in the next few hours with our Gout Remedy Report! Our objective of this article on Uric Acid was to arouse your interest in it. Bring back the acquired knowledge of Uric Acid, and compare it with what we have printed here.

Gout Disease is Most Common in People Between the Ages of 30 and 50 Years of Age

The reason for this is that it takes a build up of about twenty years to cause a first gout attack. Uric acid levels will usually begin to increase at least that far ahead of the onset of gout. However, this does not rule out gout in people younger than 30 years old. Therefore, just because you're under 30, it doesn't mean that you can't develop gout.

You Have Hyperuricemia, You are At a Higher Risk for Gout Disease

Hyperuricemia means that you already have high uric acid levels in your blood. If this is the case, your doctor may prescribe medications to help control that condition. By keeping hyperuricemia under control, you can also help to slow the onset of gout and prevent gout disease occurrences.

Although not common, gout disease can occur in those younger than 30 years old; usually as a result of an enzyme problem or kidney disease. However, when not a result of another problem in the body - for example, when gout is simply hereditary in your family - there are steps you can take to prevent the early onset of gout.

Reduce your alcohol consumption, especially if you tend to binge drink or drink to excess. Alcohol is not a cause of gout, but it can negate all of your other efforts to prevent gout disease from acting up. Alcohol will dehydrate your body and it causes uric acid to form. Therefore, it not only builds your uric acid levels, but it discourages your body from eliminating that uric acid. So it is best to avoid alcohol altogether when you are working to prevent gout disease.

The First Step is to Make Sure that You are Always Adequately Hydrated

Of course, this is a good piece of advice for your health regardless of gout, but it is especially important when you are trying to prevent the condition. This is because hydration is the primary step for helping to flush uric acid from your body. The buildup of uric acid on the joints is the primary cause of gout and therefore the main goal of gout prevention is to stop that from happening.

Even if you are already at a healthy body weight, you should examine your diet and make healthy dietary changes to include optimum nutritional choices, and low quantities of foods that are both high in purines and in proteins. These foods, such as meat, fish, and beer, are the primary causes of increased levels of uric acid in the body and should therefore be avoided. :roll:

Injury to the Joint

-Exposure to lead -Diet. Foods that contain large amounts of purine include red meat, creamy sauces, scallops, anchovies, beans, liver and heavy creamy sauces. -Medication. Aspirin, levodopa and several other medicines can interfere with the kidneys ability to remove uric acid from the body. -Excess body weight. Patience was exercised in this article on Gout Treatment. Without patience, it would not have been possible to write extensively on Gout Treatment.

Treatments Include Anti-Inflammatories, Corticosteroids

These medications can help alleviate symptoms in as little as a week. Before taking any immediate pain relief for gout, you need to discuss the potential side effects with your doctor. Certain medications can cause severe gastrointestinal and cardiovascular side effects.

Uric Acid is Filtered Out of the Body by the Kidneys

It is then excreted in urine. When too much uric acid is produced by the liver, the kidneys are not able to remove it all, and it builds up in the blood stream. This build up of uric acid in the blood stream is known as hyperuricemia. Over time the uric acid crystallizes and ends up settling in joint spaces. White blood cells eventually mistake the crystals as a foreign invader to the body, and gather into the joints as well to attack the crystals. This causes inflammation, ie: swelling, redness, and the typical gout pain.


As more people begin to experience joint pain due to gout and arthritis, many are searching for natural remedies to fight joint and muscle pain. With all of the options and conflicting information available on television, radio and the Internet, what is the best way to sift through all of the information? Although it can be a challenge, finding natural remedies that really work are worth the time and effort. I have included some bullet proof information on the amazing benefits of tart cherries.


According to research from leading organizations, as few as twenty cherries can make a difference in relieving inflammation in the body. In addition, ongoing research points to the unique make-up of the compounds found in the tart cherry that helps to fight joint pain. So in other words, the compounds found in the tart cherry are natural pain inhibitors. In other words, tart cherries contain natural COX-1 and COX-2 inhibitors. In addition to fighting joint pain due to arthritis and gout, research also shows tart cherry juice helps to soothe sore muscles due to physical exercise.

For Years, the Tart Cherry Has Been the Source of Legend and Folklore

The natural pain relieving properties has been handed down from generation to generation for natural joint pain relief. Just as the old saying goes, "an apple a day will keep the doctor away", tart cherry believers may soon be saying, "Twenty cherries day will keep the pain away".

May 2008 the U.S

Based company developing Pegloticase made another upbeat statement assessment of what they have learnt in its Phase 3 and open label extension trials. Note that Pegloticase still awaits approval from medical authorities so I am writing here about a new gout drug that is still under development. :shock:

<strong>TRIAL SUCCESS WITH DIFFICULT TO TREAT GOUT PATIENTS </strong> Pegloticase is significant because its trials have focused on gout patients who have not had success with other gout drugs, or who have medical conditions which prohibit the use of them. Thus it has been tackling harder-to-treat gout cases, not the easier ones. Hard to treat cases are a significant percentage of the gout sufferer universe. :o.

Other encouraging statements were that all extension trial patients who had responded earlier to treatment and who were on the every two week course maintained normal uric acid levels, (some were new joiners). 70% of those on an every four week course who had responded earlier to treatment, maintained normal uric acid levels.


<strong>HOW PEGLOTICASE WORKS </strong> What makes Pegloticase a very interesting, and more importantly, a hopeful new gout drug, is the way it works. All drugs used in gout try to cure or alleviate the disease by reducing the body's uric acid (UA) levels. They do this by either inhibiting its production or making it easier to remove.


This suggests that progression of the disease may be contained in difficult-to-treat cases, and therefore may not cause other medical conditions such as kidney stones heart disease and hypertension. You actually learn more about Gout only with more reading on matters pertaining to it. So the more articles you read like this, the more you learn about Gout.

Pegloticase is getting closer to an application for approval by the U.S. FDA. Its developers hope to apply for a Biologics Licence Application in September 2008, and begin marketing it in 2009. :idea:

Has Been Having a Decent Degree of Success

<strong>Elimination of gout attacks </strong>In its most recent statement the developing company's most significant remark was that the extension trial group receiving Pegloticase every two weeks, there were only four gout attacks among those who had been administered Pegloticase (8 mg) every fortnight for two months, in subsequent months. And none in this group had a gout attack after five months of Pegloticase treatment, in following months. All were patients who had been through a phase 3 trial.


Pegloticase's answer to the excess uric acid level problem is to remove it by ingeniously converting uric acid into something else, a substance called Allantoin. Allantoin is more soluble and better excreted than uric acid. The principle comes from the way most animals do it. They do it by converting UA to Allantoin, but this is something humans cannot do naturally. Hence the formulation of Pegloticase. You must have searched high and low for some matter for Treat Gout, isn't it? That is the main reason we compiled this article for you to get that required matter!
