Gout Cures: Apple Cider Vinegar and Gout

apple cider vinegar for gout reliefThere are many gout cures and remedies out there. You just need to keep the faith and find the gout cure that works for you, because everyone is different. What might work for one person might not be all that effective for another.

Here, I’m going to talk about a home remedy for gout that many sufferers have found to be one of the most effective…

Gout Cures – Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and Gout

Yes, it’s true, who would have thought that something you see in the supermarket could be so beneficial in beating your gout?

Except that, it usually can’t be bought in the supermarket, because it has to be raw, unpasteurized, un-distilled apple cider vinegar. And it’s been my experience that you can normally only get this in your health food-store or other specialist outlet.

You see, in the old days before pasteurizing and distilling etc., apple cider vinegar (ACV) had been used to treat a variety of illnesses and conditions, and many of them really effectively. And gout is one of those.

Apple cider vinegar as a drink works — it is thought — by changing your blood pH which in turn helps to alleviate the high uric acid conditions in your body which lead to gout.

But many folks use it also as a topical home remedy for gout by soaking the affected area in a mixture of cider and water in order to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

As a drink, all you need do is add 2 to 3 teaspoons of vinegar to a large glass of water and stir well. Then drink a glass 3 times a day. To help the taste a bit you can add some honey to the mixture.

As a topical application, mix 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar into 3 cups of hot water (not scalding of course) and soak the affected area (e.g. the foot) for around 30 minutes. Repeat as required, reheating the mixture as you go along.

  1. I had read about how apple cider vinegar, pumpkin seeds, and some red cherries can help gout. I took 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with water twice a day, along with some pumpkin seeds, and 6 cherries a day.
    After a few days, I have no redness, swelling, pain or stiffness.
