Get Relief From A Throbbing Toe

Posted by Treatment

It happens, usually in the middle of the night right in the middle of a great sleep. You are very rudely awakened by a very intense pain in your big toe. Even the weight of the bed sheets is causing you much discomfort. You are experiencing a gout attack and this is not your first one. Sure you had one but that was ages ago who would have thought it would happen again. If you had looked for some gout home remedies back then you would probably be able to hobble out to your kitchen now and find some relief. However since you did not prepare for this you are now going to have to suffer out the pain until you can get to a doctor.

There are many gout home remedies that a gout sufferer can implement in his battle against the agonizing pain of gout. However these gout home remedies are not going to give you instant gratification although some do claim to work relatively fast.

One of the easiest gout home remedies to implement is the intake of water. Everyone has access to water. Water helps keep your body hydrated plus it helps to flush out any toxins in your body. Nothing like drinking a lot of water and running to the bathroom on a constant basis but this does help flush out the unwanted uric acid in one’s body. Drinking water will also help feel like you are full so this will also help you to lose weight in the long run. Most people whom suffer from gout usually have a tendency to be overweight. Losing the extra weight will take pressure off your kidneys which is our body’s filtering system. Now are kidneys can perform at their peak.

There are other gout home remedies that you can use and they involve your diet. It is a good idea to avoid foods that are high in purines as purines seem to play a big role in gout. Usually foods that are high in fat tend to be high in purines. Foods such as salmon, bacon, heart and kidneys to mention a couple. The best way to see what in your diet can be causing your gout is to keep a daily record of what you are eating for at least two weeks. After that take a good look at what you are putting in your body and see if you can make any changes that will help.

When you make these changes in your diet you can keep a record of them also and see if some of the foods make more of an impact than others. Remember not all gout home remedies affect everyone the same way. Some are better than others.
