Gout
By Steven Horne, RH (AHG) & Kimberly Balas, ND

Gout is another example of material becoming too concentrated so that it accumulates as a solid instead of staying dissolved and being eliminated in the urine.

The liver creates uric acid while processing excess nitrogen waste from dietary protein. Uric acid circulates in the blood until it is excreted by the kidneys. If uric acid becomes too concentrated, it will form crystals; especially in the toes causing a great deal of pain.

It is important, therefore, to alkalize the diet. Animal protein consumption should be reduced and when it is consumed, PDA should be taken with it. Soda pop should be avoided completely. Make sure you are drinking sufficient amounts of pure water to flush metabolic waste from the body. Complex carbohydrates such as fresh fruits, dark green vegetables and other alkaline-forming foods should be increased in the diet
