Dear Bert, I like everything about your work – it reinforces all the valuable insight and advice you give from different angles (video, audio & hard copy). It is excellent and I love it! I’m still not done yet – I know …wtf! Based on your advice, I was able to prevent 1 potential gout attack w/your instant killer formula and haven’t encountered anything since then. I have long days: work 5am-2pm, taking care of a clinically depressed spouse who now can’t drive (so I do all the errands & what-not that requires driving, run & manage household chores, and I’m in constant hip pain (hip replacement surgery 4/18) w/bone on bone every step i take. Because of all this, i don’t have a lot of free time or energy but I am slowly making my way through your material because it is important to me and for my health. Even if I don’t get around to taking advantage of your free complementary coaching session, just know that you’ve helped me a lot and for that I’m grateful. I value and appreciate you – God bless you.  ~ Regina

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!
