And without drugs; purely using natural gout pain killers.
Gout pain is caused by your body's natural inflammatory reaction to the presence of uric acid crystals in your joints.
By far the most affected joint is the big toe.
The result of gout pain in the big toe is that you can't thole the weight of even a light bed sheet over it.
And it's impossible to wear normal everyday footwear, because the pain of trying to get your foot into it is unbearable.
So gout in the big toe can affect your everyday life.
Hence the pressing need to stop gout pain in the big toe as fast as possible.
But where do these crystals in your big toe come from? They are formed over time when you have high uric acid levels in your blood.
Now, uric acid is a product of the breakdown of 'purines' in your body.
These are natural chemical compounds in your body's cells that help to provide you with your protein and energy needs as well as other benefits.
And, normally, your kidneys process the uric acid produced and excrete excess from your body.
The healthy levels of uric acid retained in your blood act as beneficial antioxidants, so a certain amount of uric acid is good for you.
But, should your kidneys fail to do their job adequately enough, or, should there be too much uric acid being produced for your kidneys to cope with, then excess uric acid is retained in the blood at higher-than-normal levels.
Needle-like uric acid crystals can then form in your joints, particularly the big toe.
Mainstream treatment using drugs like NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), colchicines and corticosteroids can help to relieve the inflammation and pain very well.
But their side effects such as nausea, vomiting, stomach pains, ulcers and bleeding etc.
, mean that many more gout sufferers are nowadays looking to natural remedies to get rid of gout pain.
For example there are many fruits and herbs that have natural anti-inflammatory properties that work just like NSAIDs, but without their bad side effects.
Here are 3 of the most popular among gout sufferers...
(1) - Cherries.
30 to 40 cherries per day can help to reduce inflammation and so relieve the pain of a gout attack.
Not only do they have anti-inflammatory benefits they are also natural antioxidants.
(2) - Hawthorn.
This is full of anthocyanosides which are anti-inflammatory.
And they also contain flavonoids which has been shown to help in the treatment of gout symptoms.
(3) - Bilberry.
Another choice that contains anti-inflammatory anthocyanosides and flavonoids.
These are just 3 of lots of natural remedies for gout.
But, as well as stopping gout pain in the big toe or elsewhere, you really do need to prevent future gout attacks.
This is very important.
The reason being that frequent attacks over time can cause permanent joint damage as well as possible kidney problems.
Plus, if you've had just one attack, you're highly favored to have more.
