Recently a new friend of mine introduced me to a fascinating article about Lead Poisoning and Gout.

How Does Lead Poisoning Fit In?

Most information and stories about gout paint pictures of raucous behavior; excessive consumption of alcohol, rich foods, and grand lifestyles of debauchery and hedonism. (what could be wrong with that?)

What if the cause of the Disease of Kings came down to nothing more than plain old lead poisoning?

In Roman Times, they made pipes out of lead, eating and drinking vessels, cook ware and they even used it to sweeten wine. They even have a type of gout that comes from this: Saturnine Gout. It is also said that lead poisoning contributed to the Fall of the Roman Empire. Here’s what Wikipedia says about it:

“Lead poisoning is a medical condition caused by increased levels of the heavy metal lead in the body. Lead interferes with a variety of body processes and is toxic to many organs and tissues including the heart, bones, intestines, kidneys, and reproductive and nervous systems.”

I drink at least half my body weight in water per day. It’s filtered, I do also drink Alkaline water if I remember to pick it up. Along with other things I drink water all day. After I first started your program I was thinking I need to drink more fruit juice and then I realized that I was still taking in too much sugar. So now I just eat fruit and occasionally have some cherry juice. I’ve been gout free since I started and that alone is a reason to stay on your alkaline diet. It’s amazing how many things you normally eat that have acid in them, The trick is o get a list and just remembering the ones that are high in acid and after awhile it becomes second nature. You’ve had numerous things that come up like your shaving cream hint, it goes right into your blood stream And why not? Bert The Gout Killer, I am a living testament to that. Not to mention your diet is very good for you.

Lead Poisoning and the Gout Connection

A wise chap from the UK, George Glasser, hit the nail on the head (click here to go to his article about lead poisoning and gout) when he said this:

“Today, most gout research is predicated on archaic notions and misinformation about the causes of gout. Consequently, many drugs simply alleviate gout symptoms and mask potentially fatal health problems.”


Baby Boomers are More Likely to Get Gout

Why? Because of all the lead paints and leaded gas that was used in the in last century. Check out George’s article, he goes deep into all of it. Lead poisoning causes all kinds of kidney damage and problems and therefore interrupts the ability to excrete uric acid sufficiently.

 ☆ Remember!  It’s about time for you to understand the connection between lead poisoning and gout!


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!
