Gout

Gout is a type of arthritis that can effect any joint, although it most frequently presents in the big toe. It can affect any one at any time if the conditions are right.

Causes and Risk Factors

When there is too much uric acid in the bloodstream, tissues, and urine, gout is the result. And because the body is impaired due to the acid state, the digestive enzyme ‘uricase’ is not produced or enough of it is not produced to counter the uric acid.

Uricase oxidizes relatively insoluble uric acid into a highly soluble compound. When enough uricase is not produced and/or secreted, Uric acid accumulates in the in the blood and tissues of the body and over time, crystallizes.

Now it is this crystallization of uric acid that causes much pain for sufferers of gout. When uric acid crystallizes it takes on the shape like that of a needle, and just like a needle, it sticks and jabs its way into the joints and eventually makes it way to the big toe where the pain can be unbearable.

Infected body parts of gout become seriously inflamed and very sensitive to the touch.

Symptoms

Symptoms commonly associated with gout are:

  • Intense joint pain, especially in the big toe (although gout can happen at any joint in the body)
  • Continuous feeling of discomfort (even after the pain diminishes)
  • Inflammation at the joint
  • Redness at the joint

Natural Healing

From performing the Full Body Cleanse , eating all raw foods, practicing positive thinking and positive mental attitude, giving up eating junk food, wisely stop smoking cigarettes, and giving up on futile stress and worries changed my friend’s life and his appearance shocked everyone.

Give up worrying and stressing; especially over things you have no control over. Focus on the things in life you have control over and make choices that benefit you. Think positive and develop a positive mental outlook on YOUR life. Not the world, but YOUR world for it is the only world that you have complete domination and control over. Live daily with a positive attitude knowing that everything that happens to you in your life happens for your greater good even if you can’t see this immediately. Just stay positive and expecting the best outcome and like magic, you will receive what you desire via expectation.

Therefore, herbs are pivotal in healing from gout (arthritis of the foot). Good healing herbs for gout includes:

  • Devil’s Claw
  • Uva Ursi
  • Buchu
  • Cornsilk
  • Juniper Berries
  • Mullein leaf
  • Sassafras
  • Comfrey Root
  • Burdock Root
  • Dandelion Root
  • Cerasee
  • Parsley Leaf
  • Nettle
  • Gravel Root, and
  • Saffron (a/k/a/ Safflower)

These herbs can be taken in capsule form, tea form, or liquid extract form.

Ionic foot baths (detox) are very helpful. Perform them as much as possible as this process will quickly draw out toxins and impurities from the foot.

Colonics are also ideal for healing of gout. Home enemas may also be performed as well.

Dietary Intervention

Diet is the most critical thing you can do in a case of gout.

Immediately stop eating all meat, dairy, refined grains and starches. Basically, stop eating processed foods, junk foods, and fast foods.

Consume only raw foods, especially green foods-vegetables, which include vegetable juice that can help to neutralize uric acid and dissolve kidney stones. Eat fruits in the morning and consume vegetables from noon thereafter (though you can still eat fruit after noon).

After your cleanse and healing, do not go back to a animal-based diet. Consider going raw foods and vegan, perhaps 50/50. This is better for you and constitutes great prevention.

By all means avoid white table salt (sodium chloride, Morton’s table salt), a drug, as sodium causes fluid retention. Use herbal seasoning or sea salt only.

Drink plenty of water, preferably alkaline or distilled water. Alkaline water by far is the best water to drink because alkaline water counters high acid pH levels in the body and causes the tissues to dump off loads of toxins. Drink half your body weight in water (change the pounds into ounces, so if half your body weight is 125 pounds, drink 125 ounces in water, nearly one gallon of water). Water will help to flush your body, especially your kidneys, of uric acid.

    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 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!

    Q: I recently purchased the FULL BODY DETOX and ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. I totally understand that healing is holistic and that changes must occur in diet, lifestyle, and only positive thinking will result in optimal health. I am noticing balding on the right side of my head. Of all the hair care products provided by dherbs.com, I was curious to know if using any of the dherbs.com hair herbs would affect the detox/cleansing regime? If not which would be the most effective in assisting me with hair loss? (Due to financial limitations I can't afford to purchase them all because I just purchased an alkaline water machine that set a brother back)Aside from performing the anti-viral cleanse regime. I eat plenty of cilantro and parsley, drink half my body weight in alkaline water daily, and eliminate stressors out of my life. I was interested in knowing what other follow up actions can I take to help assist me in overcoming this trial (virus) that has changed my life for the better.

    A:

    You have the right attitude and spirit! Kudos to you. For the hair inquiry, you can drink the HAIR-SKIN-NAILS TEA during your detox. In re additional pointers, work on your mind-reprogramming it. Use daily affirmations! Reinvent yourself. Meditate! Perform yoga! perform the "SEA SALT SOAKS" daily! Keep getting knowledge! Just be creative and follow!

    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: I am a 55 year old female. I have an overactive bladder. I am trying to control it myself, without medication. I have not tried herbs. I eat fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins (not beef or pork). I added back more meat proteins 1 1/2 years ago because I was becoming so tired and lacking energy. (I read The Schwartzbein Diet, which helped convince me to add more protein.) I don't eat much sugar, salt (only 500 mg./day) or hardly any processed foods. I drink water and licorice tea, because it makes me feel good. I believe in the power of positive thinking. Can you help me with this?

    A:

    The steps you are taking in your diet are a great start. Try going raw, and eliminating grains and meat altogether. You can get enough protein and healthy fats with avocado, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, almonds, brazil nuts, coconut. You can also add Vegan Protein Powder to smoothies.

    I also recommend you give our Full Body Cleanse a try to further detoxify your entire body. After detoxing, the ideal formula for you is our Kidneys Bladder-Adrenal formula.

    Q: I love to drink water, but I like to drink hot water you know boiling water slightly cooled. Is there a benefit, or disadvantage to this compared to drinking room temperature water? Secondly, the water I drink is boiled water. Alkaline water is not a privilege most Kenyans have. If 56% of the population is living below poverty line you do the math. So the water I drink is tap water, that I boil to make it safe for drinking. When I get to work I have Alkaline water as my work place provides me with that provision. I think this is detailed enough for you to get the picture and help. Once again (I love you) in Swahili for spreading the gospel!

    A:

    No difference at all, Beloved! Even the boiled water becomes room temperature water. You're doing fine! Thank you for your words as well! Much appreciated! Peace and Love!

    Q: I am interested in starting the Full Body Detox program. At this time, I would like to know which program is best for me. At current, I have started removing things from my diet as of 2 weeks ago (pork, chicken, red meat, I'm trying with the fish but it's hard!) I am not eating cheese but I still eat yogurt and every now and then I will eat a boiled egg (egg whites). I have removed soda from my diet, no coffee, I drink herbal or green tea, pomegranate juice or orange juice and I drink filtered water (I have a countertop filter that I change every 6 months and the Brita pitcher that I change every 2 months). Along with the supplement, is there an eating plan that you can suggest for me? I am eating more fruits and vegetables, but I would welcome suggestions on certain foods that I can eat while I begin my cleansing.

    A:

    The Full Body Detox kit comes with a prescribed dietary plan and notifies a person what they can and cannot eat during the detox.

    Q: I have been off the full body cleanse for about a month, what I have noticed, when I haven't drank the amount of water needed, my anus begins to hurt as if I have heroics, I cannot wipe without having pain. I drink water, it seems all is fine. I ate fried chicken for the first time, in 3 months, and agin notice pain. So, I need the water, but what I explained, does it sounds right. I have been eating more veggies and fruit, in the last couple days, as well.

    A:

    Keep drinking plenty of water and start taking Dherbs' Intestinal Cleanser, and Bowel Motion. They will help to get rid of your hemorrhoidal condition.

    Q: Is necessary to continue food combining after completing FULL BODY DETOX in 20 Days? For example can you consume sweet fruit with sub acid & acid fruit also starches and vegetable (beans) proteins together? I learned in Nutrition that starches (rice) and beans are complete protein when combined together that our body needs. Are you at risk for protein deficiency if consuming vegan diet?

    A:

    IT'S YOUR CHOICE! OF COURSE IT'S BEST TO CONTINUE TO DO SO. IT'S UP TO YOU, BELOVED! I PERSONALLY DON'T RECOMMEND IT. NOT TRUE! YOU CAN'T GET PROTEIN FROM COOKED FOODS REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE FOOD IS. OF COURSE NOT, UNLESS YOU ARE IGNORANT TO PROTEIN, REAL PROTEIN, HOW AND WHERE TO GET IT.

    Q: I am in need of cleansing my body and weight removal! (Removal and not loss because I don't want to find it again)! I need to remove about 80 pounds of unhealthy weight from my body and would like to do so in a natural way. I looked at both your Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse, but don't know which is a better option for me to follow right now? I eat a lot of organic foods, I juice (some) but need to increase my water intake (A LOT). I don't drink much soda at all and when I do it is organic carbonated lemonade. I realize carbonated drinks are not good for us and limit how much I drink. My body lets me know when I have eaten something that is not good for me by causing my hands and feet to swell. To reduce this I drink water. I am allergic to wheat and try to stay away from it as much as possible. I have few ailments and have started working out again (cardio and weight training). I also looked at your weight loss products, but thought I should maybe detox first. What do you think? Any assistance you can offer on your products and which ones I should take is of great appreciation.

    A: The best thing for you is the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body Cleanse will allow you to remove unwanted weight, while also optimizing your entier body so that you can maintain that weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

    Q: My fiance has experienced water retention and discoloration in his right foot and leg for around 2 years. Doctors had him on water pills, coreg for vascular issues and glyberide for high blood sugars. He ordered the Pancreas kit and around a week into the program experienced more swelling in the foot and leg. He stopped the program to resume taking the water pill to see if this would help. He has gained around 12 lbs which is water held in this leg. I know the natural way of good nutrition and herbs is a good course to follow but can you offer some suggestions to help these issues. 1. water retention 2. His stomach rumbles and gurgles 24 hours a day to the point where I thought our neighbors were dragging furniture across the floor. This has caused him considerable embarrassment at work. We are eating a vegan diet about 50% raw-50%-cooked. Oddly enough when he eats a standard American diet the rumbling stops. 3. High blood pressure. Thank you so much for answering my previous letter to you. I believe in what you are doing, and know that the body will heal at it's own pace with proper care. I have resolved a urinary problem just a week into your Detox program and think it's great.

    A:

    Your husband is NOT getting proper circulation to his extremities. He should have not stopped the Pancreas kit because it is common for things to get worse before better. He should have judged himself after the kit was finished in 3-weeks. He experienced the HEALING CRISIS and stopped! He should complete the kit and regimen (perhaps even starting over).

    His stomach is making noises because he's having digestive problems. He needs to eat as much raw foods as possible and rink plenty of vegetable juice. SAD foods stops his stomach from gurgling because that's what's in his stomach; and when he does not give his stomach what it wants (a sign of fasting and cleansing), he hear the noise from his stomach. Again, the healing crisis. Things will get worse before they get better. However, you don't stop!

    High blood pressure is due to his toxic state and poor circulation!

    Have him perform the Full Body Detox and right after the Full Body Detox, the Pancreas kit and regimen.

    There's healing from him!

    Please peruse some of our free articles so as to truly learn what's going on with his/your bodies pertaining to healing.

    Q: I'm taking the FULL BODY DETOX and I am noticing that I am extremely bloated and a lot of gas. I've taken this product before and don't remember any of this. Also my urine output is decreased from normal I drink a gallon of water a day? I drink the distilled water I was unable to find alkaline water.

    A:

    It's your body that has been through something, not the herbs. Your colon is speaking to you. Don't worry! Just keeping detoxing! Distilled water is good for detoxing!

    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've been a vegan for 2 years now. I've done the FBD 3 times in these two years, but my urine is still yellow. The only time it is clear is immediately after I drink water (reverse osmosis water). If I miss a day of drinking water, my urine goes back to being dark yellow. Does this mean that my body is still very toxic? Also, is it normal to release urine 5 to 15 minutes after drinking liquids? I would think that water would need to stay in the body for awhile for proper hydration and cleansing.

    A:

    From what you wrote I would suggest you start drinking alkaline water (purchase an alkaline water machine, you can find various brands in our e-book "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual"). If you are urinating within 10-15 minutes of drinking water you are not absorbing the water, and thus you require micro-clustered water which an alkaline (and ionizing) water machine does. I also highly recommend consumption of our Kidneys-Bladder formula (3 capsules per day).

    Q: Good morning, I have used several products in the last two months. They include the Full Body Detox, Detox bath drops, Aura cleansing, Mucus buster and the Acid buster. I battle MS and I received the results of the MRI, and it shows that my ventriculers went from 8-9mm to 1.2 cm.( I was told it is atrophy) I believe I will be healed, but I am at a lost of what to do next. I researched it and found that exerising will be good, and eating veggies and fruit (having no alcohol). I am continuing on the Mucus and Acid buster. Do you know what I should do next? By the way my cholesterol went DOWN to 159 from 224 at times 242.

    Keep doing everything you're doing. Take 3 capsules of Brain Tuner formula 2-3 times per day. Drink 1-2 cups of Brain Tuner per day as well. Also, do not worry! Think positive as you consume the herbs daily and eat a mostly vegan/raw foods diet.

    Q: Hi, thanks for giving people like me some hope that we can all be healed. I recently bought the FULL BODY DETOX and I see where I need to drink distilled water for the first 2 weeks. I am unable to find distilled water here (Jamaica) but I see deionized water is that the same thing as distilled water?

    A:

    It's not the same water but it will do!
