As soon as the kidneys stop functioning normally and don’t eliminate the body waste properly, it leads to accumulation of uric acid in the joints which causes inflammation. The uric acid accumulation further leads to its crystallization, manifesting itself later in swelling, joint pain, stiffness, arthritis, kidney failure, and gout. If it’s not treated properly and the pain becomes chronic, gout will provoke acute arthritis and joint inflammation.
Hyperuricemia, or gout, is a metabolic disorder which develops as a result of an excessive buildup of uric acid in the feet. It is accompanied by chalkstones deposits and severe pain attacks.
The first thing you should do in order to remove the excessive uric acid accumulation from the body is to incorporate immediately some lifestyle and dietary changes. Avoid alcohol, sugars, processed foods, and focus more on veggies and fruits.
Moreover, drink a lot of water to promote waste elimination. The following are the most helpful drinks and foods to help you in case of gout and joint pain:
-Pineapples are rich in bromelain, that contains potent analgesic and anti-inflammatory features
-Lemon water stimulates the removal of uric acid and alkalizes the body. Squeeze the juice from a lemon and then add 200 ml of water. Drink this on an empty stomach every morning.
-Baking soda – Add ½ tsp. of it in 1 cup of water and drink it on a daily basis.
-Curcumin, the active ingredient of turmeric, contains potent anti-inflammatory characteristics.
-Flaxseeds are extremely rich in healthy compounds that promote the uric acid elimination.
-Apple cider vinegar (ACV) alkalizes the body in the same way as the lemon water. Moreover, it stimulates the elimination of uric acid. Just add 1 tbsp. of ACV to 200 ml of water and drink it before meals.
In addition, engage more in certain relaxing activities throughout the day in order to reduce stress, because it endangers your health.
