Ease Gout Pain with Foot Reflexology

According to the National Kidney Foundation, Gout pain has been steadily increasing worldwide and is now the most common type of inflammatory disease of the joints in adults in the United States. The numbers have doubled between 1960 and 1990 and now estimated that 3.9% or 8.3 million adults suffer from Gout pain regularly.

Anyone who has or had gout pain knows how painful it is. A gout attack can last up for three days with treatment, and without treatment, 14 days. If Gout is left untreated, inflammation can happen more frequently.

What is Gout?

Gout is a form of arthritis caused by an accumulation of uric acid in the kidneys.Painful Gout can attack any joint in the body, but it occurs more often in the first metatarsal head of the big toe.

Gout pain caused by needle-like crystals forming in joints when there is a build-up of uric acid in the kidneys.

The kidneys want to flush out the built-up, but there isn’t enough water in the body to flush the uric acid adequately. By practicing conscious self-care, anyone can minimize or avoid flareups by drinking enough water to support body functions and eating a uric acid reducing diet.

Gout Avoidance Diet

Water –  It is suggested drinking half your weight in ounces. Please do not consider alcohol consumption as part of the water intake. It does not work that way.

Diet – To minimize urate acid, reduce or eliminate as much sugar, alcohol, meat, dairy, and grains from your diet. Avoid nightshade vegetables – white potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, bell peppers, and certain spices, like turmeric, chili, cayenne pepper, can also cause gout pain.
