Curing gout requires some explaining. Controlling or managing gout is completely possible but curing gout is not. It’s a bit like being an alcoholic; you’re either in recovery…or you’re not.

I like to think of myself as a gout survivor; the best gout treatment comes from a vigilant practice of being intimately aware of what is going on with the pH of my body chemistry as on a daily basis.

My Gout Story

I used to say that I’d never met anyone who’s had gout as bad as I used to have it. But since I’ve been interacting with an endless number of people about their struggles with gout, now I’ve heard some pretty gruesome stories – much worse than mine.

But when it comes to “what is gout?”, I can say this: I’ve had hundreds of gout attacks – in pretty much every joint in my body. I’ve seen my hands and feet swell up like red balloons. I had three separate surgeries for tophi in the fingers of both hands, and one of the toes on my right foot.

My Disclaimer

I’m not writing all of this to try to diagnose or treat your gout…or cure your gout. If anything that I say or suggest in the way of gout remedies resonates with you, give it a try.

None of it is meant as a replacement for professional medical diagnosis, treatment, or prevention. If you’re in dire need of gout relief and you do decide to try any of the home remedy ideas you might read on my website, consult your doctor first. Only they can give you advice on what is safe and effective for your unique condition.

We’re not curing gout here…we’re just steering clear of it.

End a Gout Attack

What is Gout? Gout (as you know) is a condition of an overly-acidic inner body environment. There are many different ways to quickly raise the pH of the body chemistry up into a more healthy alkaline level quickly. Done in a specific order, simple foods and grocery items make this possible.

It’s important to also know that over-the-counter NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like generic ibuprofen work much more efficiently and effectively when the inner body terrain is moving toward greater alkalinity. The Kill Gout FORMULA is what you need right now.

My personal opinion is that you are doing just fine Bert.  You can’t cure all of us until we do our part and doesn’t it come down to lie style and healthy habits more than anything?  Probably different for each of us, but only we can find the correct road for ourselves.  You keep teaching and we’ll keep learning and maybe we can finally use the “C” word for gout soon…CURE!  ~ Martha

Don’t Let It Happen Again

The human body needs three things:

  • Air/Oxygen

When blood oxygen saturation drops to low, the blood becomes acidic…sometimes with uric acid. Keeping well oxygenated is the first order of business for staying healthy and for coming anywhere close to curing gout.  Make sure you breathe deep and make sure the air you’re breathing is as clean and healthful as it can be.

As stated in, oxygenation is vital because the cells of the body are aerobic – they require sufficient levels of oxygen for cellular respiration and growth.

  • Water

The body is made up of approximately 75% water. Even minor dehydration impacts mental function, respiration, and in the case of gout, the acid/alkaline balance of the body chemistry.

Curing gout can be as simple as staying completely and properly hydrated at all times. Ionized alkaline water is your best bet.

  • Food

Foods basically fall into two categories; acid-forming and alkaline-forming. The human body needs both in a relatively specific ratio; 80% alkaline-forming and 20% acid-forming.

On the cleaner side, proteins like meats and beans are acid-forming. On the negative side, processed foods and fast foods are also acid-forming.

Clean and organically grown vegetables and fruits are alkaline-forming and possibly the best of all gout remedies.

When it comes to the concept of curing gout, keeping the inner body environment slightly alkaline is how to do it. The best example is the blood is at a perfect pH (potential of hydrogen) at 7.365 – slightly alkaline.

Curing Gout is a Math Equation

Living gout-free is easily within reach by doing two things:

  1. Avoiding the things that add to the inner body acidity
  2. Doing the things that help to remove the acidity that has accumulated

In addition to breathing well, staying hydrated, and eating mostly alkaline-forming foods:

  • Managing stress
  • Avoiding toxic environmental chemicals
  • Getting consistent exercise and sleep

…all comprise a healthy alkaline lifestyle that delivers true gout relief.


  Remember!  The key to curing gout is this: “alkaline” is the opposite of (uric) acid.


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!
