There is no known "cure" for Gout. Like many diseases, Gout is likely a result of inflammation due to habits of lifestyle, which means following an anti-inflammatory diet and making changes in lifestyle should be the first line of defense. The following should be noted as solutions to help fight against Gout:
Avoid meats that are particularly rich sources of uric acid such as organ meats, sardines and anchovies.
Physicians used to advise cutting back on purine-rich plant foods such as lentils, peas, beans, mushrooms, cauliflower and spinach; however, recent research has shown no correlation between eating such foods and incidence of gout attacks.
Eliminate coffee and all other caffeine sources from the diet.
Minimize alcohol consumption. Alcohol promotes dehydration and irritates the urinary tract.
Drink the full complement of eight eight-ounce glasses of water daily to flush uric acid from the system and prevent urate crystal deposition.
If you are overweight, lose the excess pounds.
Eat tart cherries in all forms - fresh, or as cherry juice, or in the form of tart cherry extract. Laboratory findings at Michigan State University suggest that ingesting the equivalent of 20 tart cherries inhibits enzymes called cyclooxygenase-1 and -2, which are the targets of anti-inflammatory drugs.
Take bromelain, a compound of digestive enzymes and other compounds extracted from pineapple stems.
Another solution that may help is the consumption of ground flax seed.
