“Does SLEEP Kill Gout?”
7pm MST, Wednesday, April 13, 2015
“A little bit less gout in the world is a good thing…the more we all band together and beat this dastardly disease, the world is a better place!” That is why we do these gout hangouts!
How Does Sleep Kill Gout?
There are a couple of fundamental things to know about how sleep is critical to our overall health and therefore our efforts to kill gout.
Mainly, it all has to do with our livers doing the all important job of detoxification, and in order to do that, the liver has to be in a “parasympathetic state” – meaning that we need to be perfectly relaxed, with nothing else going on; no moving around, no conscious thinking, no digesting – no anything that we are typically doing in our waking hours.
There are so many toxic substances that make their way into our inner environment; what goes in our mouths, what we breathe, what comes in contact and goes through our skin, and even the toxic materials that are made by our very own metabolic processes…all that toxicity makes for a very acidic inner terrain that create the right conditions for gout to attack. That is what our livers have to deal with. And they don’t deal with it unless all our other conscious processes are shut down.
Do you get the picture of why sleep is so important to killing gout?
There is no one thing that causes gout…and, there is no one thing that will end a gout attack, and no one thing that will keep it from coming back. It is a whole “way of being” that will help you steer clear of the gout zone – Sleep is one component of that.
Many people talk about how they only need 3 or 4 hours of sleep a night and they’ve been running like that their whole life – then one day…BOOM! Gout! Diabetes! Heart Disease! Cancer! Stroke! Don’t fool yourself into thinking that sleep is not important – don’t be one of those people who say, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”. You might just end up wishing you were dead cause you’re getting gout all the time!
In Conclusion: Don’t think that if just your liver that needs the down time to rest, repair, and rejuvenate – your kidneys, your heart, your pancreas, and all your other organs and systems need time to rebuild and strengthen – that is how you prevent gout.
