A gout is a more complex form of arthritis and more excruciating because the pain is really not bearable at all. Basically, there is a build-up of uric acid in your blood which means a breakdown of waste substances dissolving in your blood and getting processed by your kidneys. If you don’t get rid of the uric acid fast enough, it will collect in your joints and hence the symptoms of sudden pain, heat, redness, and tenderness appear. That’s why we are talking about chronic gout because you can’t just take an aspirin and move on. Hence, check out this homemade drink you can do using a blend of natural ingredients to relieve and prevent chronic gout pain.
Thus, you will need the following ingredients to make this drink:
– a pineapple
– 2 teaspoons of powdered turmeric
– 3 teaspoons of fresh ginger root
– a cup of tart cherry juice
– a teaspoon of raw honey
Other supplies you might also need are: a blender, a food processor, a glass container with a tight lid and a strainer.
Let’s do it. First off, you need to cut the pineapple and take the stem off and the fruit. Slice these into big chunks and use a blender to mash them up evenly. Then, pour the tart cherry juice, turmeric, and the ginger. Mix again and then transfer into your glass container and secure it tightly with the lid. You can safely store it in the fridge for a month and add honey before you consume it. The raw honey is optional but if you don’t like the taste you can use it to sweeten it. Then, simply drink it daily to prevent chronic gout from showing up or you can have a glass when you feel the pain flaring up.
