“The Microbiome As It Relates To Gout”

7pm MST, Wednesday, April 1, 2015


The “microbiome” . . . do you know what that is? Well, it’s a good topic for a gout Google Hangout. Why? Because there is so much new information about how the healthy bacteria in our gastrointestinal tract is critical for our very survival. It’s been asked, “who runs who?” Are we just a host for these bacteria – they are such an essential part of the world we live in, are we just here so they have a place to live. Crazy huh?

What’s the Big Deal About The Microbiome and Gout?

You see, so much of the chronic disease we see in the world today (like gout) has to do with the dangerous dysfunction going on in our stomachs, small intestine, and colon. So much of this has to do with overly excessive colonization of unhealthy bacteria, yeasts (candida), fungi, parasites and more. When we eat properly to maintain a robust herd of healthy bacteria in our guts, they crowd out the bad bacteria and keep the whole ecosystem in check.

What you might not know is that all sorts of good things happen in our intestines. The small intestines are charged with absorbing the nutrients properly and letting them into the blood and lymph to be carried to all the cells all over the body. The large intestine recycles the water in the body and synthesizes many vitamins like butyric acid, B1, B2, B12, and vitamin K.

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!
