Hello, @gladiator14. I can understand and agree with your reluctance to put more chemicals into your body. Your protocol is intriguing. How did you come up with those specifics?
Based upon anecdotal information that I’ve heard and read, I take Knudson’s Just Tart Cherry juice, frozen cherries which I microwave to thaw, Fage dark cherry yogurt, and cherries when in season. I don’t necessarily take these every day. I drink morning coffee, then water or other non-alcoholic and non-carbonated liquids all day long.
I read that gout may be caused by chronic kidney disease. I have heard differing medical opinions on whether gout can lead to kidney stones. There are also differing opinions on whether vegetable purines, as opposed to meat purines, should be avoided. Additionally, two recent studies question if there is even a connection between uric acid levels and gout.
I hope you find this helpful.
