Gout is a condition primarily identified by the ancient Egyptians in 2640 BC. Hippocrates, the famous Greek physician, in 5th century BC, called it “unwalkable disease”.
Still, gout remains a growing health problem, which can be extremely painful to those who suffer from it.
Gout is actually a form of inflammatory arthritis, where uric acid is build-up in the blood as a product of waste materials that are usually dissolved in the blood and excreted via the kidneys.
Gout attack often occurs without warning when the kidneys can’t process the uric acid fast and it can build up and create crystals that cause pain in the joints.
The condition is followed by severe and sudden pains, redness and tenderness in the joints, usually in the area of the big toe.
This natural blend with its healing powers will help you prevent and relieve gout symptoms as same as the aspirin will.
• 1 pineapple
• 1 cup of tart cherry juice
• 1-2 tsp. of turmeric powder
• 2-3 tsp. of ginger powder
• Honey (optional)
• A strainer
• A glass jar with tight lid
Method of Preparation:
Remove the stem and the skin of the pineapple. You can choose to use the stem because it is rich in bromelain, an enzyme with strong anti-inflammatory properties, but it is ok if you use just the fruit. Cut the pineapple into chunks, and place them in the blender. Process them until you get a smooth texture. Then add the tart cherry juice, turmeric and ginger and stir all well.
Store this blend in an airtight glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 9 days. You can add some honey if you desire or add lesser or greater amounts of ginger and turmeric if you want. This natural remedy can be used for one month if you keep it stored in the refrigerator. It is recommended to take some of it daily for preventing the gout attack.
