I know I’m a little out of control with this gout and heart disease thing.

At just about every turn I keep banging on you with: “If you’ve got gout your a really good candidate for heart disease and diabetes.”

I’m sure you’re almost as tired of hearing it as I am of saying it, but, what can I do? This is how I can help you prevent a gout attack AND a heart attack!

As we know, gout can be so painful it could make you wanna put a gun to your head but, what’s worse: A heart attack or a gout attack? The connection between gout and heart disease is very real.

What’s Your Choice?

I know that you’ve come to depend on me to dig up the goods and here it is in no better or fresher terms:

  • You already know your risk of heart attack increases if you smoke or have a family history of heart disease – the top two risk factors. But do you know the next highest risk factor for men? It’s gout. Heart attacks are associated with the condition, according to a new study in the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism, which finds that gout and gout medications upped a man’s overall risk of heart attack by 26 percent after taking into consideration other known risk factors, including obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure.

The rest of the article fills it all in really well and drives the point home, click here to get the rest of it at Arthritis Foundation.

Without being too much of an alarmist or focusing on the negative, the whole relationship of gout and heart disease makes it perfect for me to get in front of you with another plug for my theme:  PREVENTION.

We’ve all “learned” lots of things and some have not served us well.

Just because I can drink a whole bottle of red wine by myself in an evening doesn’t mean I should. Just because that Fillet Mignon with the lobster in scallop and shrimp cream sauce tastes so good…doesn’t mean it’s good for me.

Taking advantage of the natural anti-inflammatory benefit of antioxidants and trying to stay with more “alkalizing” foods and water is very “learn-able”…and it can help to bring down uric acid.

The second thing to re-learn in addition to just eating better, is eating and working to control weight. Sometimes a little assistance to start moving in the right direction with that can be a big help.

    Gout Is Just a Painful Omen of Worse Things To Come. ~ Bert Middleton, The Gout Killer


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!
