Education about nutrition comes more and more under-the-influence of the Pfizers and Monsantos of the world.

It certainly seems as though the traditional MDs are being left behind in regards to education about nutrition and diet . . . especially a gout diet.

More Education About Nutrition

And as a society, as we know it.

Western medicine is a beautiful thing as far as diagnostics, trauma, and as “a last resort measure” goes, but from the common sense perspective, whatever happened to “eat right, exercise, and get plenty sleep”?

We don’t need to look any further than our TV to find that no matter how poorly we eat and live our lives, there is a pill to take care of our negligence. And beyond that there is a drug to counter act all the negative effects of the drug that is masking the original problem; drugs for drugs.

I’ve become completely sensitive to the need for more education about nutrition as I’ve struggled and moved beyond my own little War on Gout.

Hi Bert,

The “remedy” of BS and ACV worked immediately as you said it would. A steady diet of banana-blueberry smoothies, green tea and celery on Day 2 has kept the swelling down. Not sure what caused the flare up as we eat a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables, lean beef, chicken and fish, and moderate alcohol use. Your theory of too much acid, possibly caused by stress, makes sense. Will try lemon-infused water to make my body more alkaline – plus continue the bananas, celery and cherries. Other ideas welcome. The drugs the doctor prescribed were making me sick, so your remedy (other than the ACV ? was a welcome relief.

Education About Nutrition in the News

This article from the NY Times shines a really good spotlight on this gap in our quest for wellness. Here’s the segment that really got my attention:

“One day I mentioned this uncomfortable situation to another young doctor. ‘Just consult the dietitians if you have a problem,’ she said after listening to my confession. “They’ll take care of it.” She paused for a moment, looked suspiciously around the nursing station, then leaned over and whispered, “I know we’re supposed to know about nutrition and diet, but none of us really does.”

Our doctors should be honored for the service that they do, however, for the most part they are only doing what they are taught. Who is controlling what they are being taught?

Remember!  You probably have more education about nutrition than your doctor…scary, huh?


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!
