7 Natural Pain Relief Measures against Gout

Here are 7 natural painkillers and treatments for gout - without side effects. Gout is very painful and therefore it is not surprising that most people seek natural remedies to relieve joint pain and fight inflammation.

We are pretty sure you will be amazed at some of the natural remedies we will show you here.

This article will go through seven specific measures that can reduce the symptoms and pain caused by gout - but we point out that if your gout is severe, it should be treated by a doctor. At the bottom of the article you can also read comments from other readers, as well as watch a video with exercises adapted to those with chronic disorders.



1. Cherry and cherry juice


Cherries contain high levels of antioxidants and nutrients that act as anti-inflammatory. Cherries have for a long, long time been known as good old-fashioned advice for those who suffer from inflammation and related pain - and are consumed raw, as a juice or as a concentrate.


It is not just women's advice that is recommended cherries against gout dog. Research is backing up with studies that this natural measure actually has something to it. Indeed, a 2012 study (1) showed that the chance of having a gout attack was 35% lower for those who ate two doses of cherries over two days.


Another research study, published in the renowned journal Journal of Arthritis, also concluded that cherry juice, due to inflammation-reducing effects, lowered the chance of gout if up to four months if consumed regularly.


Too many people are plagued with chronic pain that destroys everyday life - that's why we encourage you to Share this article in social mediaFeel free to like our Facebook page and say: "Yes to more research on chronic pain diagnoses". In this way, one can make the symptoms associated with this diagnosis more visible and ensure that more people are taken seriously - and thus get the help they need. We also hope that such increased attention can lead to greater funding for research on new assessment and treatment methods.

2. Magnesium


Magnesium is a vital mineral and part of the electrolytes. The latter helps to ensure that soft tissues and nerves function properly. It has been seen that lack of levels of magnesium may be associated with worsening of chronic inflammation in the body - and this then includes the inflammation of gout.


Research supports this. A study from 2015 (2) showed that normal levels of magnesium in the body were directly associated with a lower risk of gout. If you have low levels of magnesium, then it may be worth trying magnesium supplements or eating foods with high levels of natural magnesium - such as avocados, spinach, whole grains, nuts, bananas and oily fish (salmon).


As you can see there are lots of delicious foods containing magnesium - so why not try to include some of them in your natural diet?

3. Ginger


Ginger's positive effect on gout is well documented - and it is also known that this root has one a host of other positive health benefits. This is because ginger has a relatively potent anti-inflammatory effect.


A research study showed that ginger lowered the levels of uric acid in the blood of those with confirmed gout. Another (3) showed that compressed ginger ointment - smeared directly on the affected joint - reduced joint pain and inflammation.


Many people with gout drink ginger as tea - and then preferably up to 3 times a day during bad periods. You can find some different recipes for this in the link below.

4. Hot water with turmeric

Turmeric contains high levels of powerful antioxidants. The unique, active ingredient in turmeric is called Curcumin and can help fight inflammation in joints - or the body in general. In fact, it has such a good effect that certain studies have shown that it has a better effect than Voltaren.


In a study of 45 participants (4), the researchers concluded that curcumin was more effective than diclofenac sodium (better known as Voltaren) in the treatment of active rheumatic arthritis. They further wrote that unlike Voltaren, curcumin has no negative side effects. Turmeric can thus be a healthy and good alternative for those who suffer from osteoarthritis and / or rheumatism - yet we do not see many recommendations from GPs that patients with such ailments should consume curcumin instead of medication.


Given that gout is also an inflammatory arthritis, this may also apply to this patient group. The research is certainly very promising.

5. Tea cooked on nettle

tea on nettle

Many people only associate stinging nettle with prickly itching and rashes - but this plant actually has a number of positive health benefits (for those who dare to try). As a herbal remedy, tea has been cooked on nettle for hundreds of years, but it is believed that it is their anti-inflammatory properties that help them to relieve the symptoms and pain of gout.


If you are not familiar with how to make tea on nettle, then we recommend that you first contact some experts in the field - or that you buy it through your local health food store. During active periods of gout attacks, it is recommended that you drink up to 3 cups each day.


If you have questions regarding treatment methods and assessment of chronic pain, we recommend that you join your local rheumatism association, join a support group on the internet (we recommend the facebook group «Rheumatism and Chronic Pain - Norway: News, Unity and Research«) And be open with those around you that you sometimes have difficulty and that this can go beyond your personality temporarily.



6. Avoid triggers

The diet is often directly linked to gout attacks and pain. Humans can have different triggers - ie foods that make the condition worse - but research studies have shown that especially red meat, certain types of seafood, sugar and alcohol are among the most common triggers for seizures. Feel free to comment at the bottom of the article if you have more triggers that should be added here.


Thus, foods with a high content of pro-inflammatory effects increase the level of uric acid. In contrast, anti-inflammatory foods and beverages, such as coffee, vitamin C, nuts, whole grains, fruits (with little sugar) and vegetables, can be an important part of keeping uric acid levels low.

7. Celery and celery seeds

Celery is a vegetable that is traditionally best known for its use against problems with cystitis and urinary tract inflammation - that is, as a woman's advice. The plant contains high levels of antioxidants, manganese, vitamin A and vitamin C.


The way celery works against gout is by:

  • Works anti-inflammatory (anti-inflammatory).
  • Increases urination - which contributes to more uric acid leaving the body.
  • Like some gout, it blocks an enzyme called xanthine oxidase.


Researchers have shown that celery contains a unique substance called 3nB  (3-n-Butylpthalide) - and it is this natural, chemical component that is believed to give celery its gout-fighting properties. In fact, it has been shown that it directly prevents unnecessary production of uric acid in the liver, which naturally helps to keep these levels lower and thus prevent uric acid crystals from forming in your joints.
