​…I have a history of getting gout (as you know!).  Around the same time I got diagnosed with gout, (1997) I also was diagnosed with hypothyroid…is that the cause of my gout?!   Here’s the kicker…is it hypothyroid? (underactive thyroid)  Or Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis?  Evidently, over 90% of people diagnosed with hypothyroid, actually have Hashimotos…which is an auto-immune disease.

This is a really important conversation that I don’t think the gout world has talked enough about.  So we are doing it!

​Gout and Underactive Thyroid

In my nutrition studies, we learned that the Endocrine System is the first thing that really starts to become compromised by poor diet and lifestyle habits.  The thyroid gland is a major player in how we “metabolize” the food we eat.  Metabolize is the rate at which we break down the foods we eat and convert them to energy.


Gout and Hashimoto’s

So if it’s an auto-immune problem, what do we do about it?

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!
