Gout Relief – Baking Soda to the Rescue!
One of the most effective ways I have found to ease the taste is baking soda. And it can work quickly to relieve gout symptoms. Here’s how to ease the taste with baking soda.
Baking soda (baking soda) is a favorite home remedy for many gout sufferers who want to relieve gout using natural home remedies rather than medications with their many side effects.
But even if you don’t go the all-natural route for gout relief, baking soda can help drug-based NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) reduce inflammation and relieve pain even better.
The benefits of using baking soda for taste relief are numerous…
(1) It helps increase fluids throughout the body and thus helps the kidneys process and remove excess uric acid from your system more effectively.
(2) As stated above, it can help NSAIDs to do their job even more effectively.
(3) It improves uric acid solubility, which again helps your kidneys better remove uric acid from your system.
(4) Helps dissolve uric acid crystals and speeds up your recovery.
(5) Increases the pH of the blood, which we know helps reduce the risk of having kidney stones with frequent recurrent gout.
And it’s very easy to prepare…
Simply add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to 8 oz of water and stir very well. Drink a glass like this just before going to bed, 1 when you get up in the morning, and then 1 glass every 2 to 4 hours between meals. Repeat daily until your taste symptoms have disappeared.
(1) Never consume more than 4 teaspoons of baking soda per day, that is, 8 glasses.
(2) Since baking soda is high in sodium, it is best to continue on a salt-free diet while taking this remedy. Certainly do not add salt to your food to taste.
(3) If you suffer from high blood pressure, check with your doctor first before trying this remedy. Use it only if your doctor gives you the OK.
I have found this particular home remedy to be very effective, but it obviously only works to relieve gout symptoms. You cannot prevent real gout attacks from happening.
And this is a critical point, because recurring gout attacks can eventually lead to things like permanent joint damage and kidney problems. Also, did you know that once you’ve had one attack, there’s a good chance you’ll have more?
In other words, you need to alleviate the gout, yes, but you also need to make sure that the gout doesn’t come back…
