Pickle Juice and Gout – The Natural Home Remedy to Treat Gout

· 7 Comments · Gout Natural Remedies

Gout is a type of arthritis that causes inflammation of the joints. It is extremely painful and the attacks are sudden. The condition is generally treated with traditional non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory medications, yet other natural treatments have proven effective. Research has shown that a natural remedy such as pickle juice and gout has become more and more common. The pickle juice can be used as a detox to cleanse the body.

If not treated properly, gout has the potential to become chronic. The key to controlling gout is to treat it during the acute stage. At this stage, gout therapy is used to reduce the duration of the attack as well as reduce the risks of future attacks. Although medications are the most common form of treatment, physicians may also recommend natural remedies such as pickle juice.

Acute attacks occur due to a high concentration of uric acid in the fluids of the body. The uric acid build-up is caused by the kidneys’ inability to properly excrete the chemical called purine. When purine is not excreted properly, hard crystals are deposited in and around the joints. This is where the effectiveness of the pickle juice and gout is demonstrated. The pickle juice can be used to get rid of the toxins in the body. It will help you to urinate frequently; thereby cleansing your system.

Pickles can actually be a healthy part of your diet. Pickles can be implemented in many recipes as they are low in calories, and low in fat or fat-free, and they are also low in sugar. Pickles are made from cucumbers or other vegetables which are beneficial for the digestive system. More so, the pickle recipes are high in fiber, containing antioxidants, which is a good source of calcium, magnesium, and iron.

The pickle juice that is contained in the recipes has the ability to detox the body because it is effective in regulating bacterial growth. This healthy liquid is known to boost the immune system, ease digestive disorder and breakdown calcium deposits in the joints. This is an exceptional treatment for gout in that it helps breakdown and excrete the uric acid.

Pickle juice and gout has proven to be an effective way to detox the body. It can be used to rid of the toxins in the body; thereby cleansing the system. Specifically, it will rid of the concentration of uric acid caused by excess purine ingestion. Many gout patients benefits from drinking pickle juice in that it helps with frequent urination and promotes overall healthy life-style.

    I have suffered on and off with gout for several years and know that it is the bane of my life. I have read about eating cherries, concentrate cherry juice etc. I have tried that remedy and it does not seem to work despite everything I read and hear. The pickle juice remedy is something very new to me. Having just read the above I do believe it might help. People swear by cider vinegar for health problems and as a detox. Is this “pickle” remedy really the vinegar? Or is it the pickle content with the vinegar. I think it might be worth a try since I like pickles but had always imagined that it was one item that helped make the gout worse. I hope that I am wrong! Anything that will rid the systems of purins has to be worth a try. Yes, I too would like to know which type of pickle and which kind of vinegar was/is used. How often to take this remedy and to what amount. I think more information needed please.

    They would have to be deli pickles that have not been put in a container and heated, also known as brine pickles or barrel pickles, they contain NO VINEGAR, there is lactobacillus, the same bacteria that makes yogurt, on the skin of a pickling cucumber. They are high in salt however.

    Eating a couple of dill pickles daily seems to helping a lot for me. I also take cherry concentrate supplements, but adding the pickles has been even better.

    My gout outbreak hit me Sunday evening with redness, swelling and pain on the bursar of my left big toe. Last night I tried pickle juice, not knowing the effects on the gout and PRESTO! This morning I woke up with much less pain, no redness and a small amount of swelling so I am a believer in pickle juice for gout.
