Does anyone know of any home remedies for temporary relief from gout (in my right foot)? I am in misery. Thanks.

100% organic black cherry juice has helped me quite a bit. It doesn't taste great, but it does wonders. (10/21/2008)
Ditto on the baking soda cure. It has been miraculous for me. Usually a dose or two is all it takes. Last time, the red, burning place on my foot was gone the next morning. Amazing. Just cut back on salt for a day or so. You can also take it as a preventative if you plan to eat something (like shrimp, for me) that you know will provoke an attack. (10/21/2008)

Gout: Burdock root tea "may" clean the uric acid out of the blood system. I have heard of relief coming in as soon as 15 minutes. Mike
I read in a Prevention magazine that cherries would relieve gout. A number of men that I worked with had gout and it helped them. Chimes
If you drink black cherry juice you can off set a flame up very quickly, but it will leave you in the bathroom for a while. You only need about 8 ounces or so and organic is best if you can get it. My boyfriend has gout in his feet and it works like a charm for him. I hope anyone who has gout will take this advice to heart.
I copied this from a site called Forgotten Medical Cures.
I hope you are better soon. (10/21/2008)
You can mix the cherry juice with Sprite, 7-Up, or Sierra Mist. Then if you would like, add lime juice and/or cherries to make a cherry limeade, yummy and gives you a bit of variety. (10/21/2008)
One source of the cherry juice my son said his boss uses is Nature Blessed, cherry juice concentrate. You take 2 TB in 6-8 oz water. It is made from red tart cherries. That is all the meds his boss has used for years. It cost about $20 for a quart of concentrate. This was located as a special order from the grocery store.
Secondly, an old medication used for gout years ago was guaifenesin. There was a connection between those using the Guai for their gout and the discovery that the use of it for fibromyalgia was great, too. Those needing to know, ask your pharmacist and seriously expect a decent answer. Or you can Google "guaifenesin use".
Anyway, for my fibromyaliga I have used the guaifenesin daily since 1997 and I can tell if I skip a daily dose, my body feels toxic. I can imagine what gout would feel like, the severe pain, etc. They are both of the arthritis family. There are hundreds of thousands of people world wide that use the guai for the FMS.
Now the Adams company did some nasty con tricks and cornered the free market, reformated the guaifenesin to call it Mucinex. They sued all other companies who were still making it until the copyright law forced most out of that market. Lots of us have to get ours world wide from other countries. (10/21/2008)
I tried cherry juice with not much results, I guess it may help others. I take Clochicine tablets prescribed by my doctor. They help a lot. Start taking them as soon as you feel the gout attack coming on. Drink as much water as you can hold while taking these, it seems the more water you drink the faster the pills work. (10/30/2008)
Raw vegetable juices are used for gout treatment. Carrot juice, in combination with the juices of beet and cucumber, is especially valuable. Beet juice 100 ml and cucumber juice 100 ml should be mixed with 300 ml of carrot juice to make 500 ml of combined juice and taken daily. Good luck. (04/01/2010)
