The Foundation receives continual emails concerning gout. If this is you, you are not alone. According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III, 1988-1994, an estimated 5.1 million people in the United States suffer from gout, and it is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis in men. Gout affects approximately 3 times as many men as women, and men are more likely than women to have gout at all ages. It’s also worth noting that there is also some evidence that the prevalence and incidence of gout appear to be rising.
95% of people diagnosed with gout, have, what is in effect, a self-inflicted problem with purine metabolism. Fortunately, this responds quite well to the Baseline Program. Certainly, Essential Relief and cetyl-myristoleate (available all over the web) can provide short term relief. But to truly correct the problem, you need to do the whole program, including dietary changes (reducing protein intake), detoxing, cleansing the liver and blood, and raising pH. You might also want to pick up a supplement of Cherry Fruit Extract (available all over the web) that can help neutralize excess uric acid.
