What Determines How Healthy We Are? What Really Causes Gout?

Let’s Start With The Cell Membrane

Did you ever stop to think about your cells, let alone how the cell membrane works? Me either . . . until after doing all this research and finding out how uric acid build-up happens and what free radicals are, what they do and how they work.

How Does the Cell Membrane Work?

Here’s a brief run-through of what I’ve learned about what the human cell and the cell membrane is, and how it works. And I’ll show you how it has everything to do with why you get gout.

At the microscopic level, we are all made up of trillions of cells and there are about 200 different types of them. Bones, tendons, muscles, our organs . . . they’re all made up of different kinds of cells.

For us to really understand how the body works, we need to get ourselves wrapped around how the cell membrane works. Every microscopic cell is an amazing world unto itself – each one takes in nutrients and uses those nutrients to make energy. Each of them even has it’s own little set of instructions for what it is supposed to do.

The “permeability” of the cell wall or cell membrane is what makes it an immensely sophisticated “organ” in and of itself.

Just like a car engine or a coal-burning power-plant, it takes in fuel (glucose & oxygen), burns it and releases some exhaust or waste. The “health” of that cell membrane determines our “health”. If the fuel can’t get IN and the waste can’t get OUT . . . things start grinding to a halt.

. . .

My personal opinion is that you are doing just fine Bert.  You can’t cure all of us until we do our part and doesn’t it come down to lie style and healthy habits more than anything?  Probably different for each of us, but only we can find the correct road for ourselves.  You keep teaching and we’ll keep learning and maybe we can finally use the “C” word for gout soon…CURE!

You’re Just Getting Old . . .

How long it takes for everything to grind to a halt is the question. For most of us, it’s slow and gradual and we just don’t notice what’s going on and we just get used to it. We think we’re getting old . . . which is sort of true. It just happens way faster and way more severely than it really has to.

Due to poor habits and diet, outdoor AND indoor air pollution, stress and all the other bad stuff we expose ourselves to, the walls of our cells start to get sticky and clogged up.

Free radical damage starts the oxidation or “rusting” process and the all sorts of “dis-ease” sets in. All the hard living causes (uric) acid build-up and oxidative damage, and the body goes into survival mode and begins dumping acid wastes in the fat cells and into our joints to protect our brains and our vital organs.

That’s where the power of antioxidants rich foods and ionized water come in. Antioxidants slow down the rusting process, does an amazing amount of repair, and keeps inflammation in check. Alkaline-forming water and food bring the body chemistry back into pH (potential of hydrogen) balance.

Stop Gout Pain Now

Did I explain that well enough for you to understand the critical importance of the cell membrane and what it has to do with your overall health? Especially when it comes to gout? If not, let’s talk.

  ☆ Bottom-Line:  YOUR health IS the health of the cell membrane.


Bert Middleton

“I know your pain. Let me help you kill your gout for good!  And teach you to advocate for yourself and take ownership of your gout recovery, by showing you how to live the gout-free lifestyle.” Two decades ago, Bert Middleton found himself diagnosed with gout. Like 8.3 million other people in the United States (approximately 4% of the population), he struggled helplessly with the physical, emotional, social, and financial impact that gout left unchecked can have on your life. Prescription drugs were of limited help… And the terrible pain of regular gout attacks left him unable to enjoy even the simplest daily pleasures. His marriage was suffering. His finances were spiraling due to the impact gout had on his ability to work. And maintaining a social life was often nearly impossible. Tophi surgeries left him in terrible pain.  And he found himself depressed … and angry … that gout was stealing years of his life.

Until one day, after hundreds of hours of research and self-experimentation, Bert finally had a breakthrough and created a blueprint for a way of living that would prove to be “the answer” to living gout-free for nearly a decade now. Today, Bert and his “Gout Wife” Sharon devote their evenings and weekends to educating other gout sufferers on how to live the gout-free lifestyle. Showing others his 911 Emergency Response Gout Recovery Plan for getting PAINFUL gout attacks under control in as little as 4 hours. And then, how to make daily choices that keep gout under control for GOOD! So you can finally start LIVING again!
