​”Gout Speak?”  As you and I are trying to figure out just exactly what gout is, I am wondering:  Am I talking your language?  

​Does what I have to say about gout and the way I say it, makes sense to you…?  This is my own little personal study about how to “help-the-most-people-the-most”, when it comes to gout.  

Gout Speak…can you hear me now?

Along the way, I came across a guy name Tom “Big Al” Schreiter.  I actually met him once at a presentation he was giving.  This amazing little guy is SO funny, you can’t help but listen to everything he says.  What he teaches makes so much sense with really valuable “everyday life” application.  

​Big Al is an MLM guru. (I’m not an advocate of MLM but have had my share of getting tangled up in them) He has a CD set I’ve listened to a bunch of times – VERY entertaining.  

​His information has been quite helpful for trying to help others understand relational concepts in any area of life.  Since you and I are all about killing your gout, I am trying to learn all I can to help you. ​

Gout Speak…by color?

​I was looking for a reference for Big Al’s personality colors.  I found this woman Tracy and her blog, Simplify Me. This is the article she did about these four personality colors.  Just a heads up; I have always been easy to identify as a BLUE. When I started TGK, my goal was to “entertain you through the pain”.  Then I became a certified nutritionist and became more of a YELLOW.  Here’s the short version of how the personality types are described as a color: 

  • REDS

​…like to be in charge, want the quick short version (of everything), “show me the money”

  • ​BLUES

​…are all about the party, just want to have fun – aren’t too concerned about the details


​…want to take care of everybody – generally people like nurses and care givers


​…want ALL the facts – VERY detail oriented and want ALL the information before making ANY decision

​What color is YOUR gout speak?

​That is what I want to know – What Color Are You?  

When it comes to gout, are you one of those folks that need to know EVERYTHING?  Everything about why you got gout and HOW every little pill or trick is going to work?

Do you just want to know what to do so you can get back in the action?  (like getting back to work and being able to take care of your family?!)

Or are you the care giver to someone you love that is struggling with gout?

​Lastly, are you one of those with F.O.M.O. types​?   “fear of missing out”?   Is the party raging on without you?  There you are, stuck on the sidelines, wincing and whimpering with a gout attack.  All you want is to just get back in there? 

​Leave a comment below.  I want to know how to help you.  Probably there are a lot of other folks that are going through the same thing you are.  Your story is going to go a long way in helping your fellow gout killers!

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!
