There are many people that might be suffering from the tenderness or redness of the joints. It is possible that they are suffering from gout. Usually caused by excessive production of uric acid in the body, gout mainly affects the big toe. In such a situation, the body has problems in getting rid of any excessive uric acid.
Although the symptoms of gout might occur quite suddenly, or even overnight, they are very easy to detect. Many of these symptoms involve intense pain in the joints. While it is not at all uncommon to feel pain in the big toe, other places where one might feel pain include the knees, feet, hands, wrists and ankles. During the first 24 hours, the pain might be unbearable and as the pain subsides, one might still experience some discomfort in these joints that usually lasts for a few days. Other symptoms usually include tenderness and even redness of the joints.
Gout treatment can be used as a means of preventing any future occurrence of such an attack while at the same time can also control a very severe attack. Some of the recommended treatments for gout are Colchine, Corticosteroids and Nonstroidal, which is an anti-inflammatory drug capable of controlling the inflammation associated with gout. Many doctors also prescribe those drugs that have the ability of reducing production of uric acid as a means of preventing gout.
One of the best ways to control the outbreak of this disease is by consuming the right diet. At the same time, one has to make sure to drink lots of water. At least a minimum of 8 glasses of water should be taken daily. Also limiting one’s consumption of alcohol and ensuring that they stay away from any food containing too much uric acid can help to avoid gout related illnesses.

There are many treatments that claim to cure cancer. Maybe they do; maybe they don’t. You have to be the one to decide.
Listed are some of those unusual protocols that just may help in your quest for better health and perhaps a cure.
Cancer Diet: Going strictly vegetarian or eating very little meat has met with some claimed cure. Alcohol, sugar, coffee, processed foods and junk foods are eliminated as they have a tendency to produce more acid in the body. You will want to aim for a more alkaline state with a reading of seven. That is the physical aspect needing care. Along with that comes the need to address any emotional issues as that will also be a part of the healing process.
Budwig Diet: Eating the right fats with sulfuric proteins is a means of getting more oxygen into cancer cells thus dealing them the death blow. This is done with cold pressed flaxseed oil along with cottage cheese and lots of sun. No doubt for the Vitamin D effect. An herbal remedy also included is drinking Essiac tea which is highly recommended by holistic healers.
Cesium Chloride: This therapy should be done using a professional as your potassium level will need to be constantly monitored. Alkalinity is created within the body, which allows the cancer cells to be weakened, promoting additional oxygen throughout the cells.
Apricot Kernels: These kernels are a source of Laetril, which has since been banned. Apricot kernels can be ordered through the use of the Internet and are relatively inexpensive.
Bicarbonate of Soda: Using baking soda along with “sugar water” IV may trick the cancer cells into accepting the soda. The body becomes alkaline very rapidly. Some have tried to take baking soda with molasses as a means of a cancer cure.
Gerson Therapy: This method involves slow speed juicing and coffee enemas to cleanse the liver. Hoxsey Bio-Medical Clinic uses this treatment along with healing herbs.
Ozone Therapy: This is usually done at a clinic, especially when lung cancer is involved. Food grade hydrogen peroxide is legal but should be used with caution. This therapy is a way of applying oxygen to the cancer cells to destroy them.
No matter what treatment therapy you choose, your decision should be made after thorough research, which should include heart-to-heart talks with medical professionals, since their recommendations can be invaluable and even life saving.
