What Exactly Is Gout?

Gout is only a symptom of an underlying problem in your body…the same underlying issue of toxicity, unbalance diet, and stress are the fundamental cause of all types of disease.   The symptoms of disease are only the tip of the iceberg in anyone…the reason you have got symptoms is the most important aspect to be addressed…not just the symptoms themselves.   If the root cause is not addressed correctly, further diseases will inevitably develop in time.   So invest in your health before all else…don’t simply disguise symptoms with toxic medication.
Far from the new disease on the block, gout has been plaguing people throughout history. Indeed, diagnosed for over 2,000 years, Gout is considered one of our longest-known diseases.
Throughout much of that history, gout was considered the “disease of kings," primarily because it was thought to be a result of overindulgence of fatty foods and alcohol.

Modern science has shown us that—while such overindulgence can definitely heighten the risk of gout—anybody can be affected by the pain of gout.
Gout is a form of arthritis that often sneaks up in the middle of the night (we'll explain why it usually occurs at night later - it's the key to curing gout), suddenly attacking your joints with a deep, persistent pain.
Gout most often results when needle-like crystals of uric acid form in the body’s connective tissue or lodge themselves in the space between two bones (i.e., in the joints


These uric acid crystals inflame the surrounding area and lead to inflammatory arthritis.This inflammatory arthritis is responsible for heat, pain, redness, stiffness, and swelling commonly associated with gout

What are the Symptoms of Gout?

1.  biggest symptom of gout is extreme pain,

2. swelling,

3. throbbing

4. heat in the joint 

If you've never had gout before, you might not understand how easy it is for doctors to diagnose gout.
Your doctor can do a test for the presence of uric acid crystals in your joint fluid (by taking a sample of the fluid in the affected joint), but most likely he will recognize the unique symptoms to diagnose that you do indeed have gout.


Other symptoms of gout include:

  • Multiple attacks of acute arthritis
  • Arthritis attacks that develop over the course of an extremely quick time (e.g., over the span of 12-24 hours with inflamed, painful, red, and hot joints)
  • Arthritis attack that affects only one joint; most often affecting the toe, ankle, or knee. The first attack of gout most often affects the joints of the big toe. In fact, gout is thought to affect the big toe of 75% of all patients during the course of the disease.
  • Additionally, the affects of gout can be found in other joints such as the elbows, fingers, heels, instep, and wrists.

If you experience any of the above signs or symptoms, it is very possible that you are suffering from gout. A visit to your doctor can quickly confirm if you are indeed afflicted with gout and can begin your process toward healing.

Who Gets Gout?

The most typical victim of gout is male, over 35, and at least somewhat overweight.
Gout affects nearly 1% of the world's population. Gout is responsible for nearly 5% of all arthritis sufferers.  But anybody can get Gout!
Research has shown that 1 out of every 4 people with gout actually has a family history of gout...

While the genetic component is not currently fully understood, researchers are hopeful that such information will greatly impact the early diagnosis and prevention of gout in the future.

Because men tend to have higher levels of uric acid in their bodies to begin with, gout affects more men than women. However, after menopause, a woman’s uric acid level actually rises to be comparable to a man’s level.

In addition, age seems to play a role in the onset of gout. Men typically develop gout between the ages of 30 and 50. Women, on the other hand, rarely develop symptoms until they are 50 and older. Very few cases of gout have been diagnosed in children and young adults.

Is Gout Preventable?

Again, the answer is YES!!!
It's important to know that, if you've suffered from gout once, you are highly likely to suffer from gout again. But the good news is, we are here to help you learn everything you need to know about treating gout, and then preventing it from ever occurring again.

The Health Transformer Approach 


Are there any effective Alternative Treatments to Gout?

Thankfully, YES!!!
The most important aspect of curing and treating gout is to find out why uric acid levels rise higher than they should…what is causing this rise?   As just discussed, Gout is caused by high uric acid levels in the blood leading to uric acid crystals being laid down in the joints, creating a inflammatory response, swelling and severe pain.   Once the cause of the rise in Uric acid levels has been found and addressed, gout will disappear very quickly.

So what causes a raise in uric acid in our body?

Uric acid is a waste product from the digestion of protein, sugars and carbohydrates (which break down into glucose…sugar)   Each of these food groups cause a fall in our blood pH (the acid alkaline balance) making your blood much more acidic.   Most western diets are meat, sugar and carbohydrate based, and add to that other factors which cause acidity…stress, toxicity,alcohol, lack of sleep, other medications, and we have a recipe for gout disaster.

I have successfully treated hundreds of Gout sufferers over the years using simple natural safe and quickly effective protocols.   The way I address Gout is this:
1.  Find and remove the underlying toxicity stressing the body
2. Address dietary intake, balance and change any factors contributing to gout
3. Treat with nutritional supplementation to readdress the acid/alkaline balance fast.
4. Advise on simple measures to be taken to remove any risk of gout occurring in the future.

Every person is an individual and will have their unique set of contributory factors.   In this practice we treat you as an individual and address your specific predisposing factors.

 

Meta Health Scan 5 Step Protocol

In every case of Gout there is an underlying cause…something individual to each person.   If at one time you didn’t have these symptoms and now do, obviously something has changed in your system in order that these symptoms have been produced.   Gout is merely a symptom of the underlying cause.   To treat Gout effectively and naturally we need to address the cause. In this centre we specialize in root cause diagnosis of any health condition using our state of the art Meta Health Scan. 


5 Step Protocol
1. Detect (In-Depth Evaluation & Advanced Testing)
2. Detox (Heavy Metals, Chemicals, Hydrocarbons, Bleaches, EMF)
3. Eliminate (Pathogens…virus, post virus, bacteria, parasites, fungi)
4. Rebuild (Tissues & Pathways)
5. Rebalance organs (kidneys, liver, etc.)

The 5 Steps to Restoring Health Protocol had been developed following many years of research and experience and utilizes food, nutritional supplements, herbal and energetic formula
The Meta Health Scan is carried out utilizing the amazing diagnostic ability of Clinical Kinesiology.   It is reliable, accurate and reproducible. The scan will reveal the imbalances unique to your body, and how these are affecting you.   The scan reveals such issues as endogenous bio-toxicity, nutrient imbalances or deficiencies, sub-clinical infections, allergies and food sensitivities.  We also test for organ imbalances, hormone imbalance, and leaky gut.    Any abnormality in these areas will easily be picked up during the Health Scan. We also examine your entire lifestyle, sleep quality and any emotional/psychological contributors to your condition.

In-Depth Consultation regarding your results.

Once this information is gathered we offer you an in-depth consultation to discuss your results, during which we discuss what has been revealed by the scan, where and how this has arisen, and how to remove or transform it, and reboot your system.   I believe it is very important for each person to understand what has been going on in their body, how the condition has developed, and how to unravel and resolve it naturally.   My intention is not just to teach you about your condition, but more importantly to empower you with understanding in order that you are able to take back control of your health.

Individually tailored Treatment Plan

Together we create an individualized tailored treatment plan for you.   This may include some or all of there: a gentle detoxification protocol, dietary changes, specific supplements, life style changes, exercise, etc tailored to your specific needs. In the majority of cases treatment can be implemented by you at home without the need for repeated visits to the centre; however Health Coaching and support is built in to this package to assist you through your treatment.


Supportive Treatments

Once on the prescribed treatment, some clients choose to support their system with other therapies toastiest healing.   This is not essential but will speed up your progress.   These include;

 


all of which are on offer at this centre.
I am delighted to be able to report that the results our client’s achieve with this approach are outstanding and lasting in the vast majority of cases.
