Cherries For Treating Gout
The best way of treating gout is through one of the many natural treatment products on the market today. For a doctor to treat gout, it can get expensive. You have to pay the doctor's copay before you even get the treatment, then he will probably recommend prescription products that will only serve to further deplete your pocketbook. As a result, treating gout the traditional way can get quite expensive.
Studies are starting to show, though, that treating gout with natural remedies can be just as effective, if not more effective in some cases, that treating this painful condition with traditional medications and therapies. One of the best ways of treating gout with natural products is by consuming a decent amount of fresh bing cherries.
Cherries For Gout?
While it may seem hard to believe that eating one of your favorite foods may help treat your gout problems, it is true. Gout episodes occur when uric acid builds up in the blood stream. When the levels get too high, the kidneys can no longer serve as a filter to get it out of the blood stream. As a result, the acid hardens and settles in your joint, causing the pain and swelling you may have noticed. Fresh bing cherries, though, seem to work to clear the acid out of the blood, fighting the crystallization process, helping to reduce outbreaks and your level of pain. If you are interested in trying this remedy, consume a bowl of bing cherries (only fresh bing cherries will work for you own experimentation purposes) each day for a month. Chances are good that you will notice a serious difference in your gout outbreaks.
