“What REALLY Causes Gout?!” 

(watch live right here! …or…  watch on Youtube)


line-breakIs Uric Acid the Bad Guy?

Interestingly enough, and the big reason I wanted to do this gout hangout, is because we all get this idea when we first get gout, that uric acid is the bad guy…it’s not.  It is actually a very valuable and much needed antioxidant that serves to protect our entire cardiovascular system.  Uric acid only becomes a problem when it becomes excessive in our bloodstream.  So what we all really need to learn, is how that happens, and then take steps to eliminate the ways that we are creating that for ourselves.

The Cause of Gout…is a Progression of Factors…

The quickest and easiest way to get into this conversation is to talk about the north to south process of how our digestive system works.  I did a post on this for my community project when I was working on my certification to be a nutritionist – click here and go get up on the low down.

But to cut to the chase, the really important step in all of this, is the way the stomach acid breaks down our food…specifically the proteins.  When our stomach’s ability to break down proteins, and all of the foods we put into our bodies in general, becomes substandard due to all the abuse and neglect we cause with nutrient deficient foods, it just makes the job that much harder for our other organs and systems like our livers and kidneys.  Add to that, toxic air, contaminated water, and poisonous substances soaking into our blood through our skin, and we have a regular Code Red Emergency on our hands…gout is just the alarm.

Since our livers and kidneys do the all important job of removing and filtering toxic materials from our blood, keeping them in good working order is of paramount importance.

Stop Gout Pain Now

Remember:  It’s not the food that is causing your gout problem…it’s just that you body isn’t working as well as it used to…like before you got gout.



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!
