    Arnica is supposed to be fantastic, like the bicarb I'm using that dates back 150 years for gout lol. Yes Gaz did thanx very much, I was very reluctant to use any of the bloody pain killers as I read about the inhibition of muscle growth, only time I've taken them is the last 3 nights to knock me out cold, so I get some sleep :hysterica

    Matt has your mum had a go at drinking Arnica?? I read a report on that too, but it's expensive & didn't want to throw it in for it not to work?
    Really appreciate this so give your mum a hug from me

    The mega greens, PH drops & bicarbonate of soda am & pm have seemed to really bloody ease the pain so far, touch wood. I've not been back to work yet though, so that will be the real test on them

    I was thinking about this a bit today, and it occurred to me that whey isolate or EAA's might have less effect on your gout issue than meats. I read somewhere about whey protein used during recovery from gout to keep healthy protein levels coming in each day.

    I have no scientific data to back this, so it may be a shot in the dark, but if all else fails you might try removing meat from your diet and replacing it with a high quality whey or EAA powder.

    If the doctor confirms the presence of gout, you're now left with the problem of how to treat it. There are many old-fashioned treatments available for gout, but the newest and fastest way is actually with whey protein.


    ".....Whey protein has been on the forefront of all-natural medicine for years, and more and more doctors are beginning to see the benefit. High-quality whey protein (not the stuff bodybuilders use during their workouts, this whey protein is of a much higher quality) is filled with protein and amino acids."

    Yes I read an article on whey protein v recovery from Gout, only problem with me is I'm lactose intolerant! The report I read also said adding milk, cheese & yoghurt to daily macros would help....it may help the gout, but for me I would be locked in the bathroom for weeks....I don't know which one would be worse

    Hi Linny, my mum recommends celery seeds. You can get them from any health shop but suma is a really good brand for it. She suffers from bad arthritis especially whilst competing and it's quite similar to gout. Hope this helps

    The PH drops are easier as I can carry them with me, so any fluid it's easy to add 10 drops per litre

    I'm just praying it works. The doctors are pathetic they are so stone age mindset, my physio knew more, the doctors couldn't explain the blood report, yet the physio could?

    Thanx, just want to get it under control, then I can keep the acidity in blood down hopefully.
    Had the mega greens,1/2tsp bicarb of soda & Naproxen before bed & again this morning, as that's when the blood is most acidic, jeez that stuff isn't palatable lol

    Go back to have my blood tested again in 4 weeks to see if the uric acid levels have gone down.

    No idea why, probably because I'm reading so much on the subject, but when I stand I'm getting a lot of water retention in my ankles & feet & knees where the pain is. Only started the bicarb last night so it can't be this.

Last I heard she is doing much better and training again. I do know that she is on estrogen therapy, though.
    That's what I'm doing at the moment pushing through, some days I can't stand let alone walk.
    I just despise being defeated.
    Thanx so much for replying
