When your body is producing some extra uric acid, the result is gout. However, there are quite a few natural treatments that may help in fighting this condition. The good thing to know here is that uric acid levels are usually getting elevated for 20 to 30 years before they cause any trouble – so you might not have a reason to worry (yet), which is why gout usually occurs in middle-aged and older people.
If you’re among those people who are constantly having a hard time dealing with this chronic condition, and also, provided you don’t wanna rely on pharmaceutical medicine for the rest of your life, then try the following recipe.
And it involves pineapples. That’s right, not only it’s good for you, but it’s also delicious. The natural healing and anti-inflammatory properties of these foods can significantly alleviate your gout symptoms in the very same way that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory would.
What you will need:
- 1 pineapple
- 1-2 teaspoons of turmeric
- 2-3 teaspoons of ginger, or 1 inch off of a fresh ginger root
- 1 cup of tart cherry juice
- organic honey
How to make it:
- Take the skin off the pineapple and make sure you use the stem of the pineapple because that’s where you’ll find the highest concentration of bromelain.
- Slice the pineapple into pieces that are approximately the same size and mash them in your food processor.
- 1 cup of cherry juice is added to the mashed pineapples and next are the turmeric and the ginger.
- It should be stored in an airtight glass container in the fridge for up to 10 days. Consume the drink every day.
- The optional honey is if you prefer the juice to be on the sweet side, so whenever you pour yourself a glass, you can add honey to taste if you’d like.
