Getting educated with a comprehensive gout book is an excellent starting point for treating and overcoming gout.

What information should an effective gout book contain? There are many different, interesting aspects to gout but usually the most important thing to know is how to stop the pain.

To begin with, any decent gout book with include thorough explanations of three things:

  1. What Gout Is
  2. What Causes Gout
  3. What To Do About Gout

What Is Gout

Most books about gout only explain that gout is caused by too much uric acid in the bloodstream. And, that uric acid is due to the breakdown of purines, which are found in red meat.

What a well-written gout book will explain is that uric acid is one of many acidic substances that cause an overly-acidic inner body terrain. Gout occurs because the kidneys are not able to maintain the proper pH of the body chemistry as they are designed to do.

What Causes Gout

The body can become overly acidic due to acidic substances that come from both the “outer” environment, and the “inner” environment.

Synthetic chemicals from the processing of modern foods creates toxic acidic waste on the inside of the body. Breathing polluted air is another source. Detergents, solvents, fuels, toiletries, and cosmetics that come in contact with the skin are absorbed, and then add to the acidic load that requires processing by the kidneys and liver.The most overlooked cause of gout is Stress. Stress comes from strong emotions and negative thinking. These mental activities also produce chemistry; stress hormones. These hormones, Cortisol and Adrenaline are extremely acidic in nature. A gout book that covers all aspects of toxic acidity will mention that controlling stress is helpful in controlling gout.

You know I’ve been almost gout free since I found you…

You know I’ve been almost gout free since I found you. Between your straight up advice, your website, and research on the web, I think we got me under control, before I got some serious damage. I just wish I could have downloaded your book on this smart phone of mine. I’ve added a lot of alkalizing foods to my diet, but have not eliminated anything, except maybe portion sizes. The Meat Cleaver is alkalizing, just do it and never give up, praise the Lord for you, I hope he has provided your a good and prosperous life, for your help to mankind. ~ Jimmy

What To Do About Gout

All food sources are either “alkaline-forming” and “acid-forming”. Fresh fruits and vegetables are alkaline-forming. Protein sources such as meats and beans are acid-forming. The proper ratio of consumption is 80% alkaline-forming foods and 20% acid-forming foods. This is the kind of information that is found in the more informative gout books.

Staying completely hydrated with quality water and habits of deep, full, and complete breathing will also help to maintain a more alkaline inner body chemistry.

There are specific methods that different gout books outline for ending the pain of a gout attack and for preventing gout from returning. Regardless of whether it is an immediate episode or long-term maintenance, getting a gout book that teaches about all the methods of alkalizing is what to look for.

My Gout Book

To recap, asking all the usual questions about gout helps to get clear about what you need to get out of a book on gout.The e-book that authored, “Kill Your Gout NOW!”, is a “handbook” for learning to neutralize inner body acidity quickly and by doing so, reduce and eliminate the unbearable pain. It is the introduction to my video-based program for learning how to live a more alkaline lifestyle and prevent future gout attacks. It’s called “Kill Your Gout FOR GOOD”.

Other Gout Books

There are many different books about gout that offer specialized information. Some gout books are dedicated to the history of the disease, and others are steeped in technical data. There are excellent gout cookbooks and books for how to choose what restaurants to eat at when you have gout and what to order.

Other non-specific books that offer relevant information about gout -treatment for gout and good foods for gout – are also invaluable. I have three recommendations for you in regards to this:

  1. Alkalize or Die – written by Dr. Theodore Baroody in 1991, this is an important book to discover the importance of how the inner body terrain becomes overly-acidic and detailed instructions for how to overcome it.
  2. Food Rules – by bestselling author, Michael Pollan, is an entertaining book that simplifies how to perceive the confusion of modern day food sources and how to make real life sense out of what to eat, and how to eat.
  3. The Essential Alkaline Diet Cookbook – Complete with more information about the importance of alkaline foods, recipes, a meal planner, alkaline foods list, and incredible photos to get you going and set you straight.

   Remember!  Learn all you can from as many different gout books as you can!

Prescription drugs were of limited help… And the terrible pain of regular gout attacks left him unable to enjoy even the simplest daily pleasures.

Tophi surgeries left him in terrible pain.  And he found himself depressed … and angry … that gout was stealing years of his life.
