Gout is defined as, "a form of arthritis characterised by severe pain, redness and tenderness in joints. Pain and inflammation occur when too much uric acid crystallises and deposits in the joints and symptoms include strong pain, redness and swelling in joints, often in the big toe. Attacks can come suddenly, often at night".
Those with chronic Gout can make certain lifestyle changes to help control and decrease the frequency of attacks. Incorporating healthy food choices into your daily routine, including fresh fruit, lean meat and lots of leafy green vegetables while reducing alcohol and all forms of processed sugar can assist.
Ensuring hydration is always adequate is very important too. Water will not only help to keep hydration levels in check but will also work to flush any unwanted toxins out of the body.
Keeping stress levels to a minimum is also highly recommended. Light forms of exercise are great ways to reduce stress levels, taking a walk, doing yoga even trying meditation can all help.
In addition to lifestyle changes, MSM (a source of organic sulphur) has also been found to help significantly control and ease the symptoms of Gout.
Included below is a testimonial from a chronic Gout sufferer who after trying many different medicines, finally found relief from taking MSM daily.
