“What Is Glutathione and What Does It Have To Do With Gout?”

(click the image to play the audio)

line-breakAlthough the audio of this gout conference call is sort of scratchy, it turned out to be a great call with a lot good information for you about what we can do to kill gout. David Freund joins us again to talk about the connection between glutathione and gout and what we can do to take advantage of it.

Glutathione – some people call it the “master antioxidant”. Understanding glutathione is a critical piece to understanding what to do to keep your cells healthy – and when your cells are healthy, you’re healthy.

Glutathione is synthesized in the liver so you can’t just supplement with it – although there are glutathione supplements out there. Avoid them. There are three precursors that we need to create glutathione: glutamic acid, glycine, and NAC –  N-cetyl Cysteine.

Hi Bert,

Well it is more than a year since you have guided me. Yes, I’m still here and haven’t missed one of your 365 messages.  It’s been quite a journey. I’ve learnt a lot.

Time for me to say thanks for your help, concern and encouragement.  I still live in fear of another attack, however I’ve had a really good year. had a problem on my cruise last year July, and A couple of small attacks since, and funny enough they have show as sprained ankle ones, not the toes. Anyway with the Gout Killer formula and some medication they have been short lived.
I have decided not to go on permanent medication.

My lifestyle has changed in the last couple of years as mentioned before. Good breathing [ thanks to you ], good water , a LCHF [ low carb high fat } WOE { way of eating } not much alcohol { I think alcohol can be a major problem } life is pretty good for a 73 year old.

I had a look at my Urate readings over the last 15 years, yes I have records.

They have been as low as .40 mmol/l – to .51 mmol/l average around .47 .48 .49 mmol/l. This is Australian readings, I think you use mg/dl so say around 8.5 mg/dl, if I’m correct. Yes this seems high , Aussie recomended is .12 – 0.45 mmol/l USA I think is 3.5 – 7.2 mg/dl.

Well hope that helps, don’t really know how to reduce it. Yes, I eat a lot of meat, but no seafood, or high purine meats.

We leave for Canada, Alaska and USA tomorrow, will see how I go , hope to have a few drinks, keep your fingers crossed, no, I don’t drink much beer, and all spirits are with soda water and lime. My PH is good, some what Ketogenic and only take Warfarin as a medication for a genetic blood disorder, nothing else.  BP is good , Cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL, LDL all good. Not over weight.

Keep up the good work. Still enjoy hearing from you.

Must fly, lol, literally in a few hours, will be away for 2 1/2 months.

Enjoy your summer, don’t think we will get to Colorado this time.

We get glutamic acid and glycine from bone broth and I wrote a blog post all about bone broth a couple weeks ago. As far as NAC goes, one of the best places to get it is in whole raw milk – which we get a gallon of it every week from the good folks at Ebert Farms, just a few miles outside of Denver.

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!
