Gout Diet Plan Juicing IdeasIf you’re into juicing try apples and pears leaving the skin on. Both of these tasty fruits contain Quercetins which reducing the production of uric acid.  Try juicing 2 of each together and alter according to taste.

Cherry juice is another fantastic option and has been called a “Super food” for a number of reasons including fighting gout (1 glass equals 5 servings of fruits and vegetables). Before you juice cherries you’ll need to remove the cherry pits.

I recently tried these myself and they were really tasty!

I’ll be posting more juicing ideas in a few days so be sure to stop back by.

Gout Diet Plan Your Gout Triggers

When you are prone to gout, there are a lot of things that can cause it to flare up and cause pain that is almost impossible to live with. Fortunately, if you know what your gout triggers are you can avoid a gout flare up. Typically people who have the condition have high levels of uric acid and if that acid builds up around a joint you’re going to feel intense pain. Keeping uric acid levels low is important and the best way to do so is to avoid the triggers.

Some of the things that have a tendency to trigger gout come on a plate. It’s important to avoid foods that are high in purines which are notorious for raising uric acid levels in the blood. Some of the foods that can lead gout flare ups include red meats, organ meats, seafood and vegetables that include spinach, asparagus, cauliflower and legumes.

Alcohol is definitely something you want to avoid and beer is a major gout trigger; more so than seafood and red meat. Beer and other alcoholic beverages not only raise uric acid levels they also leave you dehydrated. Sugary drinks like soda and fructose beverages should be avoided as well.

Medications can also trigger gout flare ups. If you’re taking beta-blockers, pain relief and some blood pressure medications there’s a good chance that they will affect your gout. Check with your doctor to find out what medications you’re on might be triggering your gout flare ups. Stress and various medical conditions can also raise uric acid levels and cause gout flare ups as can being overweight.

The best thing you can do to avoid your gout triggers is to identify and avoid them as often as possible. In addition, consult with your physician about any medications he can suggest that you use as treatment. Most important of all do your best to live a healthy lifestyle and exercise as much as possible; if you do you can get back to living a life free of gout pain.

If you suffer from Gout pain, while you will be inclined to give into temptation during the holiday season, it’s important to remember there are lots of foods you’ll be able to eat. Potatoes are a great choice around the holidays and often parties will have a few choices of potato sides and vegetables. Pudding also has low purine content and there are always low purine alternatives for things like cheese, ice cream and soups. Eggs are also a great option and they can go well with nearly every meal. Nuts and peanut butter are great snacks that don’t have high purine content as well but watch out if you are trying to lose weight because they are high in calories.

Although being over weight and following a poor diet can lead to Gout, it can also occur randomly and is usually related to the build up of uric acid in your blood, however it’s not always as straight forward as that.

I’ve had several friends that have experienced the devastating pain of gout and it was a frustrating time in their lives as well as their friends who hated to see them suffer. Following a Gout diet plan was a real life changer for them.

There are prescription medications for Gout however they can have terrible side effects if taken for long periods of time whereas a healthy gout diet plan gives you a natural alternative.  Regardless if you take medication or not you sure follow a healthy gout diet plan for long term results.

Read the following True, Success Story about the Gout Diet Plan:

I had a family member who was diagnosed and when she asked how long she would have to take the gout medication they told her for the rest of her life. The rest of her life! Never having been one for taking prescription medication, she did anyway because the pain was so terrible she could barely move. The constant inflammation, painful throbbing, stiffness as well as tenderness that came with her gout kept her in a state of painful despair constantly so she felt she had to do something so she started on the medication. For long term, permanent prevention,she also found and started on the Gout diet plan.

Long story short, after taking the medicine for a couple of months, while following the gout diet plan, she saw improvement and began to ween herself off the medication. Soon after she visited her doctor and he was thrilled with her results however expected her to keep him informed on her progress. Well, its been 3 years now and she still isn’t taking prescription medication and has had no re-occurance of the gout thanks to the Gout diet plan.

The Gout Diet Plan – What is Purine?:

If your diet consists of high levels of purine, it goes without saying that your body is going to produce excess uric acid that will cause gout. Part of a effective gout diet plan is to reduce the amounts of purine in your diet. Purine are natural substances that are found in the body’s cells and are in most foods at varying levels. Uric acid is produced as soon as the purine is broken down entirely. In healthy amounts purine works as antioxidants and help prevent harm to blood vessel linings, however in high amounts they can cause gout. Lowering your uric acid count is part of a effective gout diet plan.
