Gout is a condition that was first identified by the ancient Egyptians back in 2640 B.C and even they were baffled about how to treat gout back then. Regrettably, gout is still very much with us today – in fact, more than ever. It is a very common disease, statistically speaking, affecting more than 8.3 million American adults from the ages 20 and up. However, I am hearing from people in their teens that are now struggling with gout.
As you probably know, gout is an extremely painful inflammation of the joints and soft tissues, and pain is caused by the crystallization of uric acid. The painful flareups are most common in the big toe joint but can show up in the elbows, wrist, feet, knees or ankles as well.
The symptoms can be debilitating. Because of this, gout
sufferers strugglers are eager to find a “cure”. Unfortunately, gout is an acute condition that be treated successfully with natural methods but is in fact believed to be, by most western medical authorities, an incurable form of arthritis. So the big question is: IS gout curable? If so, why are so many people still struggling with gout?
Effective natural gout treatment does exist but studies have shown that only a small percentage of people who struggle with gout are actually receiving adequate advice and treatment and most of these recommendations are not being followed.
Decades ago, gout was seen as a benign condition that is often self-inflicted. All too often, doctors don’t view it as a serious medical condition because they believe people develop it due to overeating, poor diet, excessive consumption of alcohol, poor lifestyle habits, and general abuse and neglect of their health. However new evidence is coming forward everyday that there are more contributing factors precipitated by the toxic environment we’ve created in our world.

How Is Gout Treated?
According to western medicine, the long term treatment of gout aims to lower the uric acid levels. The theory is to dissolve existing crystals and prevent the formation of new ones. Basically, it involves two strategies:
- Drug treatment
- Changes in diet and losing weight
Interestingly enough, losing weight and making some changes in a person’s diet is an important part of treatment. However, it is just the starting point. Avoiding beer and purine-rich foods such as organ meats, dark fish and red meat is the worn out advice that has been handed down for centuries and is no longer valid. While they can help reduce uric acid levels, taking a much more holistic approach is the modern solution for gout.
Urate Lowering Therapy (ULT) involves long term use of medications to lower uric acid levels and prevent gout attacks but they are not without serious and unfavorable side effects. Keep in mind, once you start taking these medications, you are supposed to take them for the rest of your life. Going on and off medications is a recipe for disaster that will only make the condition worse.

Bert Middleton, The Original Gout Killer
“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 via their website TheGoutKiller.com
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!
