Try alternating hot and cold foot baths, it worked for me. (08/20/2006)
In our local newspaper there is a doctor that says to drink 1/2 cup of real cherry juice twice a day. Says that will work. Others have written to him singing it's praises. Good luck. (08/20/2006)

Tell your husband to "stop eating the cherries" some fruits have acid that exacerbates "gout"
Editor's Note: Cherries and cherry juice are generally recommended for gout. (08/20/2006)
I recently had an attack after about 20 years! I went to the internet and typed in "home remedies for gout." Believe it or not, baking soda in water about every 3-4 hours worked for me. I had to cut out ALL other sources of sodium (salt) for a couple of days - soda will cause water retention. I got relief within a few hours. Type in "baking soda remedy for gout" and see if you can find the formula. Good luck! (08/20/2006)
It is not a natural remedy but it really worked for me....celedrin. You can get it at health food stores or even walmart. I will never be without it again (08/28/2006)
Try Puricell. It is all natural, and my fiance bought it off of the internet. It seems to have no side effects and with 2 pills a day, he can move again like he could in his 20's. (01/02/2007)
Might as well try. Can't hurt. (01/09/2007)
