Gout Pain - 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.

Reduced Tension

- Better relaxation - Reduced stress - Improved mental health Acupressure for gout pain relief is best administered by a trained professional who will use gentle, yet firm pressure to the correct points on the body, using a knuckle, finger, or thumb. This pressure is held for between fifteen and thirty seconds. It usually feels like quick, jolting sensation that is immediately followed by numbness or a tingling that then dissipates over time. Once the pressure is released, most people feel some immediate pain relief. :roll:

Many Gout Sufferers Report the Following Benefits When Undergoing Acupressure:

- Pain relief, - Reduced inflammation - Increased circulation We were furnished with so many points to include while writing about Gout Pain Relief that we were actually lost as to which to use and which to discard! :)

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. The results of one reading this composition is a good understanding on the topic of Gout Remedies. So do go ahead and read this to learn more about Gout Remedies.

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.

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.

So what makes the tasty red fruit so beneficial? The wonder of the cherry is the anthocyanins. According to research from Michigan State University tart cherries contain anthocyanins and bioflavonoids, which inhibit the enzymes Cyclooxygenase-1 and -2, and prevent inflammation in the body. These compounds have similar activity as aspirin, naproxen and ibuprofen. Further investigations revealed that daily consumption of tart cherries has the potential to reduce the pain associated with joint inflammation. Many consumers are choosing to drink cherry juice, eat cherries or consume tart cherry pills to starve off the pain of gout, arthritis and joint inflammation.

In an attempt to find relief from her pain, she located Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry capsules, a supplement made from red tart cherries. 'Within the first week of taking the tart cherry capsules my hands felt so much better.', says Ms. Patterson. 'I am now able to crochet without the pain in my hands.'

Addition to the health benefits offered by cherries, many people are just eating the fruit for the taste. John Simms, a life-long resident of Indianapolis, Indiana, eats cherries for the convenience and taste. 'As a short-haul truck driver, my diet isn't the best, I would eat fast food every day. A year ago, my wife bought some dried cherries and I began eating them to keep my weight down. Now I eat a handful of cherries instead of eating fast food.' Maintaining the value of Gout was the main reason for writing this article. Only in this way will the future know more about Gout.

Here is a list of some basic tips if you or a loved one is suffering from gout! ) Maintain Your Healthy Weight! ) Avoid Eating Meats (Purines)! :evil:


You have been living with the painful symptoms of gout for a while or this is the first time you have suffered from swelling, stiffness and pain in the joints, you have no doubt come across people telling you about low purine diets for gout. :evil:


Following a low purine diet has been shown to reduce the level of purine in the body, and this in turn reduces the levels of uric acid being produced.

Eat food that have a moderate to low purine levels, such as most vegetables, fruit, cereals, white breads and avoid foods that are high in purine like meat extracts, shellfish, offal (liver, kidney's, brains, sweetmeats), gravies, dried beans.

Is interesting to note that purine is naturally present in the tissues of our body, and it is only when there is an excess of purine, often caused by a diet rich in foods with high purine levels that the uric acid builds up. :)


Uric acid is a natural by-product that is produced when the body breaks down purine, so less purine in the body means that the kidney's can work to get the body back into balance by eliminating the excess uric acid as waste. :shock:

Further Danger of Excess Uric Acid is the Formation of Kidney Stones

These can be very painful and can also further reduce the ability of the body to expel waste uric acid. We have not included any imaginary or false information on Uric Acid here. Everything here is true and up to the mark!

Of course, the adoption of a low purine diet may seem like quite a sacrifice, especially as it can be different to the typical western diet. However, many gout sufferers see the inconvenience of a new diet as a small price to pay to relieve themselves of the pain and discomfort of gout.
