I’ve declared a new holiday! Freedom from gout…

Gout Independence Day!

I propose that we use the Forth of July as a reminder that this holiday, now more than ever, we kick gout’s a$$ and keep it kicked!

This doesn’t mean we have to give up the good times – on the contrary. We just have to be more vigilant and prepared with state-of-the-art methods of gout prevention. It’s not as difficult as you might think, keep reading.

Arm Yourself with Weapons

Prepare to do battle this Fourth of July! Here’s the list:

  • Apples
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Bananas
  • Lemons

Knowing how to get rid of gout is one thing, preventing gout is quite another. More often than not, what most of us do on this joyous summer holiday is follow along with all the usual BBQ crap like hot dogs, hamburgers, sodas, and massive amounts of chips. Oh, and we can’t forget beer. What you’re going to be happy about is that I’m not about to tell you to avoid these things…except for the sodas, that s%*t will kill you.

BUT what I am going to tell you is that instead of chips, eat chunks of celery and carrots. Maybe even get some half way decent Ranch dressing like Newman’s Own to dip them in – but avoid the cheap stuff; it’s full of high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated trans fats – it’s about as bad as drinking Coke when it comes to gout.

Here’s something you can really freak everybody out with:

  • Grill up some slices of apples and bananas!

You’ve heard of “fried plantains” right? Well this is the grilled version. Start something new, be a maverick. There is nothing in the rule book (there is no rule book) about what you have to eat on Independence Day so go ahead, BE INDEPENDENT!

The Secret Weapon on Gout Independence Day

You’re really going to be blown away by this one. The Secret to being gout free this Independence Day is…WATER! Let me tell you how to use it.

First of all, you need to start two days before the Big Day; start drinking a massive amount of water on July 2nd. How “massive” is massive? At least half your body weight in ounces of water for each 24 hour period. Of course this is the amount you should be drinking EVERYDAY, but now since this is the big beer drinking holiday coming up, it’s critical.

As you drink this amount of water, you need to be careful to keep your electrolytes up right? You’re seen those fancy $5 bottled waters with “added electrolytes” haven’t you? Well if you buy them you’re getting ripped off – electrolytes are just minerals – calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphate, and chlorine – which you get out of a pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt. Put a litte sprinkle in every glass or container of water you drink and you’re good to go.

The Big Day

Here’s the really important part I want you to puff up your chest and get done:

  • For every beer you drink on the Big Day, you drink the same amount of “water”…PLUS HALF!

That means for every pint of beer you drink, you have to drink 24oz of water. AND, one of the oldest natural remedies for gout is to squeeze the juice of one fresh lemon into every glass of water you drink if you are in the middle of a nasty brawl with gout.

BUT, since we’re operating under the context of true gout prevention, we’ll slightly alter this trick and only use the juice of half a lemon for every quart of water.

Be prepared! Buy your lemons today! Get your jugs all lined out so that about the time the sun is going down and you’re already hammered, you got plenty of good gout killin’ power in your body for protection.

   Remember!  The goal for this Gout Independence Day is to be gout free the day after! Head over the The Gout Killer Facebook Page on July 5th and let me know how you’re doing!


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!
