Help Decrease Uric Acid Levels With These Foods

holding-basket-of-cherries

Uric acid is natural waste that the body produces after digesting foods that contain purines. Some of these foods include sodas, seafood, certain meats, beer, and beans, but the body also produces and breaks down purines on its own. The body has the natural ability to filter out uric acid via the kidneys and urine; however, continuously consuming foods that are high in purines can cause uric acid to build up in the bloodstream.

 

As purines reach a point of decomposition, the body creates too much uric acid. The build-up of uric acid in the bloodstream is commonly associated with development of gout, kidney disease, skin problems, or metabolic acidosis. People with gout are encouraged to follow a strict diet and avoid high-purine foods. Using the following foods to your advantage, you can help naturally lower dangerous levels of uric acid.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar:

Some people may contest that apple cider vinegar is not conducive for those who are trying to lower uric acid levels. While it may be acidic outside the body, apple cider vinegar has an alkalizing effect inside the body. Add two teaspoons of raw apple cider vinegar to eight ounces of filtered water and consume this twice a day to help reduce uric acid levels.

 

Cherries:

Known for their anti-inflammatory properties, cherries also contain anthocyanins, which are flavonoids that have antioxidant effects. Anthocyanins work to reduce overall uric acid levels and they help prevent uric acid from crystalizing and depositing in joints. Cherries may also reduce overall inflammation.

 

Fiber-Rich Foods:

Great foods that contain fiber include apples, blueberries, broccoli, pears, cucumbers, carrots, steel cut oats, strawberries, and celery. Adding high-fiber foods to your diet helps to lower uric acid levels because they absorb uric acid in the bloodstream and work to eliminate excess uric acid via the kidneys.

 

Vitamin C Foods:

Vitamin C is a natural cleanser, helping to flush toxins from the body. Including vitamin C-rich foods in your diet can help disintegrate uric acid bloodstream and flush it from the body. Start including kiwis, guavas, green leafy vegetables, and citrus fruit in your diet. Similar to apple cider vinegar, citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges have an alkalizing effect inside the body. The reason for this is because they are low in sugar, meaning they are alkaline.

 

Green Tea:

Green tea contains powerful antioxidants that can help decrease uric acid levels in the body. People with hyperuricemia who consume green tea have been known to decrease their risk of developing gout. One cup of green tea a day is sufficient.

 

In addition to adding this list of foods to your diet, it can be beneficial to avoid consuming sugary beverages. Fructose in juices or sodas is absorbed quickly, spiking your blood sugar levels and leading to higher amounts of uric acid in the body. Replace those sugary beverages with freshly made juices or smoothies. And don’t forget to drink lots of water!

    Q: My wife has hidradenitis suppurativa and her uric acid is high which causes gout.

    A:

    Hidradenitis suppurativa is a condition that's related issues within the blood and similar to acne. We recommend starting off with the Full Body Cleanse followed by the 10 Day Blood Cleanse. The full body cleanse will help detox your body into a healthier state while the blood cleanse will better address the issue. Doing the 10 Day Electric Green Combo Regimen might also be necessary to help balance the ph levels out.

    Q: I'm a personal trainer with a client who suffers from acid reflux. She was taking on teaspoon of apple cider vinegar a day and that was keeping it under control. One of her favorite foods is grapefruit. Her reflux has gotten worse and her doctor has since put her on medication to keep it under control. Is there anything that she can do that is more natural and can place her body back in balance?

    A:

    This person needs to consider performing the FULL BODY DETOX and after such detox, do a daily regimen of ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, ACID BUSTER, ENZYMES FORMULA, and DIGEST AID. For right now, she needs more alkalinity in her system which comes from green foods. Alkalinity counteracts acidity. Have her drink vegetable juice daily.

    Q: I'm writing to you to ask your advise as to what would constitute a beneficial regimen,(SP?), for my 27 year old nephew who suffers from psoriatic arthritis and is currently on a program of methatrexate infusions every eight weeks. His lifestyle is fairly hectic as he's hoping to receive a professorship in the next two years and he is currently working all the time in a physics lab and continuously has things other than his personal care on his mind. For these reasons I've decided to try and find some way to possibly help him hopefully reverse this terrible condition. I've read about your Full body detox and was a bit disappointed when reviewing the conditions which it remedies as it listed neither psoriasis nor arthritis. With his condition uric acid levels are extremely elevated as in gout and I was wondering if a course of medical grade charcoal would help to adsorb the U.A. Any help you could offer in the way of advise would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    Just because we don't list EVERY ailment the FBD helps to help mean doesn't mean the Full body detox doesn't. Of course it works on psoriasis and arthritis. Read some of our FREE health articles on our site! There is much help for any condition here at Dherbs.Com! You can heal from ANY condition as long as you BELIEVE you can be healed!

    A:

    Your body may have accumulated an abundance of toxins as a result of the prescription medication you are ingesting. We suggest you perform our Full Body Cleanse to purify your body. Your blood is toxic and that's why your skin itches -- the skin manifests the condition of the blood. Purify your blood and major eliminative channels (i.e. liver, colon, kidneys, etc.).

    The drugs were acidic and acid burns (itches)! Basically, your body is acidic and you need to work on becoming alkaline.

    Order the Full Body Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse Companion and change your condition in 3-weeks or less!

    Our herbs are very potent - the BEST!

    Q: If I may ask, what is it specifically about the baby's diet that is conducive to eczema? We try to give her a normal, healthy, nutritious diet. Exactly which foods are acid-forming so that we may alternate them out of her diet? As for my wife, she has taken several detoxes in the past with no results. She is now expecting and breastfeeding so I don't believe a detox would be the best thing for her at the moment. Are there any other suggestions you can offer us for currently treating these problems?

    A:

    The acid-forming foods are eggs, meat, dairy products, and refined grains. Shop for vegan foods. Your wife can drink DETOX TEA and use HEALING SKIN OIL (externally) as well as drink vegetable juice (which greatly cleanses the blood). Please consider a consultation so that all questions may be thoroughly answered and so you all can get on the path of healing together as a family.

    Q: I would like to know how to cure the heartburn. My mom has suffered with it for sometime. She also has diarrhea. Sometimes she feels better, and then the heartburn comes back again. It looks like she has a lot of acid in her tummy. Can you tell me how to cure? She can't eat many foods, and has to avoid some things, but her body still needs nutrition.

    A:

    HEARTBURN IS THE RESULT OF AN ACID-FORMING DIET (TOO MUCH PROCESSED FOOD - ESPECIALLY MEAT). THE DIET MUST CHANGE! EAT MORE RAW FOODS (FRUITS AND VEGETABLES).

    Q: Why does excess acid in the stomach comes back up? What can I do to stop it from coming back up?

    A:

    You are too acidic and the Body Intelligence is rejecting the acid for your own good. You cannot stop it from coming back up nor should you want to. The proper thing to do is to stop eating acid-forming foods which is the real problem.

    Acid-forming foods include all meats, all dairy products, all processed food-stuffs, soda pop, coffee, wine, pastries, refined grains, anything processed and refined.

    Eat more raw, organic fruits and vegetables (especially green vegetables) for they are alkaline which counteracts acidity. Our Electric Greens formula does the same thing.
