line-breakIn this gout conference call we talk a lot about how stress seems to be part of the whole gout problem. When it comes to stress as the cause of gout, I always like to try to remind everyone that stress is not necessarily just about some mental activity – it’s about physiological stresses that then throw our hormones and brain chemistry out of whack and then we don’t cope with things in our lives as well as could or used.

I love the blogs and am trying to follow the diet as much as possible. I don’t have time in the day for exercise until the weekends but so far since reading your blogs I have not had a reoccurring attack. Keep up the good work and thank you for sharing the information. ~ Dan

The biggest physiological stress we cause ourselves is by eating too much sugar and high glycemic foods – there is too much sugar and insulin in our blood and this causes all sort of problems that can have both direct and indirect consequences that lead to gout. Blood sugar regulation is a very hormone intense process and in the case of diabetes and hyperinsulinemia, it can lead to an enormous amount of cardiovascular problems. And the kidneys – which have everything to do with gout – are a highly vascularized organ!

Stop Gout Pain Now



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!
