Diet Help for Gout
Alcohol impedes removal of uric acid in the body. Alcohol is metabolized into lactic acid in the body. The lactic acid then competes with uric acid in the kidneys for elimination through urine; thus, greater levels of uric acid remain in the body.
WHY DO LOW PURINE GOUT DIETS ALONE FAIL TO RESOLVE GOUT?
Is a healthy diet important to gout control? ABSOLUTELY! However, focusing solely on purines can lead to trouble. Only 30% of uric acid production stems directly from the purines in foods. The other 70% is manufactured from the dying cells in our body. Cells die at a much higher rate in the presence of unhealthy and unbalanced diets, stress, medications, environmental toxins, weight problems, and our overall lifestyle.
We cannot fully control all of the toxins and acids in our environment that contribute to our cellular degeneration. Perfect diets can be quite challenging, if not impossible. We MUST approach gout healing and continued gout control with a fully comprehensive plan including diet, lifestyle, vitamins, and supplement(s) to provide the best support system possible.
Purines are found in every plant and animal cells. Purines include adenine, guanine, hypoxanthine, and xanthine. Purines constitute one of the major parts of our genetic codes, DNA and RNA, and energy molecules such as ATP, GTP and coenzyme A. Purine molecules are essential to all of life.

ARE THERE FOODS THAT SPECIFICALLY CAUSE A GOUT ATTACK?
Many chronic gout sufferers are almost always bordering a high level where any one meal can push them over the edge and into an attack. The combination of both a high purine AND high acid meal can prove to be too much. This is why many people believe that a specific food is the cause of their gout attack; however, it is usually just what happens to tip that "already full cup" over and into an attack.
You must bring your uric acid down to a manageable level in order to gain some flexibility in your diet. Once again, this is where vitamins and supplements are necessary to provide your body with all of the tools that are crucial to uric acid management. You must enhance the body's ability to fight this disease, and diet alone can make this a daunting task.
IF LOW PURINE GOUT DIETS AREN'T THE WAY TO GO, WHAT IS?
Healthy, low purine foods should always remain a part of the balance you are aiming for. The better option would be to focus more on pH balance, as a whole. pH balanced meals and lifestyles can further your quest for healthy cell protection, thereby reducing your overall uric acid load. pH balance also aids to reduce the inflammatory response in the body that sends your organs into a frenzy and allows uric acid to be freely stored to be "dealt with" later.
Acid/ Alkaline base has to be in balance. If not, our organs and bones often end up providing the alkaline buffers. This leads to chronic degenerative diseases. Remember, in order to remain healthy or improve your health, the ph of your body must be slightly alkaline.
We can and must further support our needs and alkaline buffers through vitamins and supplements.

HOW DOES EXCESS WEIGHT/OBESITY AFFECT GOUT ATTACKS?
We know that overeating promotes the inflammatory response and suppresses the immune system. Obesity can affect the heart, blood flow, friendly bacteria levels and nutrient assimilation appointing excess strain on these organs and their essential functions. As a result, extra uric acid production is common. Moreover, the typical diet involved in obesity cases is rarely conducive to healthy uric acid balance.
Heavy, red-meat-based diets or lots of sugar-laden foods would definitely have a negative impact on immune function and promote inflammation, whereas calories in the form of fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds would improve immunity.
It is known that even an extra 20 pounds can create an abundance of inflammation in the human body and lower overall immunity. Weight management is an important aspect of maintaining a balanced immune system and controlling inflammatory conditions such as Gout.
IS THE ATKIN'S DIET A PROBLEM FOR GOUT SUFFERERS? ARE OTHER FAST WEIGHT LOSS METHODS PROBLEMATIC, TOO?
The Atkins Diet is a high protein and highly acidic approach to weight loss. This diet holds little to no alkaline balance, a balance essential to maintaining healthy body environment. Acidic body conditions allow for disease growth. Consequently, diets like these can drastically increase your chances, and even directly contribute to, Gout and other degenerative disease development. Crash diets deplete the body of vital nutrients, creating an acidic body environment, and release stored purines from the body fat in the process. As you know, excess purine release results in even further uric acid production.
A healthy weight is essential to gout and disease control. Fast and unnatural weight loss methods are dangerous to your health AND increase uric acid levels in the body. Purines are stored in fat cells. When they are released too quickly, overload is inevitable. Your body needs the time to slowly deal with the purine release in order to excrete it from the body and avoid even more uric acid production and storage.
SHOULD I BE EATING LOW FAT AND FAT FREE FOODS ONLY?
Low fat and fat free foods are rarely recommended by us. In most cases, they aren't any "better", and can raise even more health concerns.
Most of these foods are chemically altered and processed to achieve the fat removal and often replaced with even more undesirable ingredients, like sugar, to enhance their taste. Fat restrictions can go way too far and can be equally as dangerous as a diet too heavy in all the wrong fats.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO TEST THE pH OF MY BODY?
By and large, blood pH is the most accurate way of measuring our health and body functioning. However, this cannot be done at home and is rarely done professionally, either. Urine and saliva testing can be rather telling about our overall health and the capability of uric acid excretion. This type of testing can be done at home.
Test your urine over a 48 hour period, 4 to 6 times a day -- one upon waking one, 1 hour after breakfast, 1 hour after lunch, 1 hour after dinner and before bed. If you wake at night to urinate, we advise to test that one also. Record your results.
IS SUGAR A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO URIC ACID PROBLEMS?
YES!! Fructose increases uric acid through a complex process that causes cells to burn up their ATP rapidly, leading to "cell shock" and increased cell death (remember 70% of uric acid production comes from the death of your cells!) After eating excessive amounts of fructose, cells become starved of energy and enter a state of shock, just as if they have lost their blood supply. Massive cellular die-off leads to increased uric acid levels.
HCFS, or High Fructose Corn Syrup, is lurking in almost every processed food imaginable. According to Dr. Hyon Choi and colleagues from Boston University, drinking high fructose syrup laden beverages increases uric acid levels in the blood, which eventually deposits into the joints where it causes gout.
How Can We Avoid HFCS (high fructose corn syrup)?
The first food to go has to be the soft drinks; this includes fruit punch, fruit cocktails, and Kool-Aid since they are all laden with HFCS.
Second, eat more meals at home. Restaurant foods are mostly prepackaged foods reheated and served to you. Use of HFCS in these foods is wide spread because of their increased shelf life.
While shopping, read the labels, if HFCS, fructose, or modified corn starch appears within the first five ingredients place it back on the shelf an move on. Sounds easy right? Wrong. As you make your way through the store you will begin to realize just how much of what you have been eating on a daily basis contains HFCS.
Reducing HFCS will not always be easy, but the health benefits are well worth it. You will feel stronger and more vital, it will lift your mood and give you increased concentration. Limiting your intake of HFCS will not only shrink your midsection, but also do wonders for your over all health.

HOW DOES ALCOHOL AFFECT GOUT?
Alcohol, generally speaking, isn't high in purines. However, alcohol is high acid and adds to uric acid problems in other critical ways.
Alcohol contributes to uric acid levels in the body. Alcohol raises the amount of ATP that is converted into AMP-a good foundation for uric acid.
Alcohol increases cellular degeneration within the body and the brain. As these cells die off they release purines, which is within every cell in our system.
Additionally, alcohol consumption directly affects and consumes the attention of the liver and kidneys, impeding even more uric acid excretion. Alcohol also dehydrates the blood, further producing excessive uric acid.
A recent study found that one alcoholic beverage per day was enough to significantly increase the risk of gout in that person. The risk grew as number of drinks consumed increased.
AM I DRINKING ENOUGH WATER AND WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT TO GOUT CONTROL?
Water consumption and the source for your drinking water are both very important. Unfortunately, a good portion of our society is dehydrated and isn't even aware of it, which poses major health risks.
If the kidneys sense the body is becoming too dry, they begin to retain the fluid, rather than excreting it as urine. This also forces the body to hold onto excess uric acid and other toxins ordinarily excreted by the kidneys, and the damage begins. This is a vicious cycle of dehydration. Proper water intake is an essential key to blood hydration and kidney filtration in order to properly expel uric acid from the body. One should consume a pure source of water, ideal amount for their body weight and activity level, steadily throughout the day. By the time you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated.
Daily Water Needs- Divide your weight in half. This is how many ounces of water you need daily, consumed at a slow but steady pace from rise throughout the day. If you weigh 180lbs, divide by 2 = 90oz of water daily. Drinking water should come from a pure source, preferably filtered for purity and filters replaced according to manufactured suggestions. Optimal drinking water pH is 7.0. Juices, teas, sodas and coffee DO NOT count towards your water needs!
CAN STRENUOUS EXERCISE INCREASE MY CHANCES FOR A GOUT ATTACK?
Strenuous exercise markedly diminishes the excretion of uric acid without affecting the output of creatinine. Mild exercise has no appreciable influence on uric acid.
A possible explanation for the retention of uric acid during exercise is the overproduction of lactic acid, since even ingestion of this compound brings about a decrease in the output of uric acid.
Exercise remains very important to your overall gout control. While attempting to gain control of your gout (via a program and product like ours), we would encourage you to avoid strenuous/high impact exercise and choose a milder version temporarily. Once you have gained control of your gout, an increase is exercise levels should be well tolerated. Hydration is key, as well. Aside from the normal hydration requirements, it is imperative that you also replace the water loss from sweating during and after your exercise.
HOW DOES CHLORINE IN OUR DRINKING AND BATHING WATER AFFECT GOUT?
We inhale chlorine in the gaseous form, chloroform, through the steam of a shower, bath, and in a hot tub. Chlorine also seeps into our pores in these ways, as well as through swimming pools. Chlorine is found in our city tap water, and when ingested or bathed in, has a direct effect on our health. Chlorine not only destroys vital strains of friendly bacteria in our body but is a health risk in general for many other reasons.
DO I NEED TO BECOME A VEGETARIAN TO AVOID GOUT?
Believe it or not, we have a lot of vegan/vegetarian clients that still suffer with gout. Whether it be from an abundance of unfermented soy products or simple, but critical, food imbalances; their bodies are still having problems dealing with uric acid production.
Your gout diet does NOT have to be bland and boring. It can even include red meat and fresh seafood! Our product(s) and program allow you much more freedom in your dietary selections. We teach you how to achieve balance and how making better food source and supplement choices can go a long way towards controlling your Gout.
This may be one of the most complex areas to understand, and we are learning new things all the time. For far too long we have remained focused on certain food triggers and purines counts. Food selection is very important. However, in terms of actual purines in the food, they truly only contribute to around 30% of the uric acid production. The larger and often overlooked picture would be the lack of pH balance to each meal, unhealthy food choices, high-heat cooking methods, and an overabundance of processed and now genetically modified selections in the typical diet. Additionally, you will continue to find conflicting information on what is considered to be a “healthy diet," rendering you helpless in making concrete decisions on your approach for change. Here is what we do know:
• Eat to live, don’t live to eat. This is one rule we truly do not follow as typically we include food as the staple of just about every celebration and usually not the best of selections.
• Vegetables(mostly) and Fresh Fruits(non GMO & preferably organic) should be the majority of your daily diet.
• Trying to avoid high temperature cooking methods as much as possible (microwave, grilling, broiling, frying-anything cooked in oil) and choosing more slow indirect heat (crock pot, rotisserie, steaming, low heat baking and roasting, simmering) can make a difference in the acidity level of your food. High direct heat chemically alters the food, makes it more acidic, and can strip away most of the nutrients.
• Organic sour dairy products can provide a daily source of friendly bacteria to the body. Cottage cheese, sour cream, and plain yogurt can be incorporated for this purpose. (The commercially fruited yogurts are packed with sugar so choosing plain and adding fresh fruit and stevia for sweetening is recommended)
• Limit or eliminate sugar, sugar substitutes, high fructose corn syrup, white flour, synthetic oils, caffeine, non-perishable, genetically modified, and processed foods in general. Fresh is always best.
• Limit or eliminate alcohol, smoking, recreational and prescription drugs.
• Whenever possible, choose organic and organically grown foods.
• The ph balance of your meals and in your body can speak volumes about your health. An overly acidic diet, or even excessively alkaline diet, equally raise many concerns. When the body is too acidic, it has to work overtime to expel the residue or to have to store it and use vital minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium as a buffer to lower the body acidity. This is extremely stressful on the organs and depletes essential nutrients in the body. When the body is immoderately alkaline, it has to deal with low electrolytes, which can weaken the nerves and muscles also affecting the body’s functions. Generally, we deal with overly acidic diets and in turn with very imbalanced pH levels. The body is relentlessly working overtime to achieve balance, as this balance is essential to all bodily functions and cell health. One should strive for an eating balance of at least 70/30 ratio of alkaline to acidic food intake, per meal. Our typical diet is exactly the opposite, and often times even worse than that. Fortunately, pH can be tested. Healthy functioning range is around 6.5 in the AM, and 7.5 by evening. How you heat the food and what you eat together in a meal can make all the difference, and very important one at that.
• Drink plenty of pure non-chlorinated water every single day for proper health, hydration, and toxin removal. Water consumption needs should be based on your weight and activity level. One should consume about 1/2 of their weight is ounces per day. For example, if you weight 180lbs, your body requires 90oz of water each day. Water should be consumed at a slow and steady pace throughout the day, avoid gulping large amounts all at once.

|Ingredient Selection & Quality Speaks Volumes About Its Success|
The Secret is in The Gift of Bioenhanced Technology
Producing Quality and Effectiveness Higher Than Ever Dreamed Possible!
Many herbs are extremely difficult for the body to absorb in order to yield any benefits from their use. The quality and production of an ingredient directly affect whether or not it will activate in the human body.
Many herbs must be consumed in a biologically active, bioavailable form. Otherwise, they are rendered practically useless.
The extraction process and protective coating of particular ingredients provide the only guarantee that they make it beyond the body acidity and into the areas they are designed to target. This is where our high standard of bio-enhanced technology becomes such an important factor in the success of what we have to offer you.
Flamasil also contains probiotics. Close to 80% of our immune system resides in the digestive tract. Friendly bacteria is essential to this part of the body. Most probiotics on the market today simply can't bypass the stomach acids in order to make it into the intestines and do their job.
Flamasil's probiotic ingredient is micro-encapsulated. Micro-Encapsulation is done by coating the particles with a special coating that protects them. This allows the friendly bacteria cells to survive the hostile environment of the stomach and go on to multiply and thrive in the intestines where they do their job!
Probiotic therapy is advantageous for all walks of life, especially in today's modern society and lifestyle. Probiotics not only aid to maximize nutrient and supplement assimilation, but are also extremely useful in providing your body with extra protection from disease in general by stimulating your own body's natural defenses!
Look at the clear difference between BCM-95® Turmeric Curcumin and standard, plain curcumin.
Flamasil® contains a bio-enhanced version of Turmeric. Turmeric is a key ingredient, but practically useless in standard form. The body cannot absorb and hold onto plain curcumin long enough to maintain therapeutic levels.
BCM-95® Turmeric/Curcumin bypasses standard formulation problems to enable the human body not only to properly absorb it, but to hold onto it for hours of therapeutic activity.
All the ingredients in Flamasil™ play an important role in regulating healthy inflammatory responses, gently cleansing, and curving an accelerated aging process. However, the ingredients' Grape Seed Extract, Pine Bark Extract, Turmeric, and the Probiotic Gut Buddies® are solely dependent on how they are handled from their starting point, as to what kind of impact and support they can provide in the body. J. Robert Lemon, R.Ph., President of Life Plus International, said it best when he compared certain herbs to crude oil. “The crude oil is extracted from the earth just like grape seed extract is extracted from the seeds, still in its crude state. Like grape seed extract, the crude oil contains many things. If you put it in you gas tank, it won't even make your car run. However, when you refine it and extract the fraction that makes up gasoline, and put it in you car, it will run as it was designed to. Just as crude oil is the starting point for producing high-octane gasoline, grape seed extract is the starting point for producing high quality OPC.”
OPC’s, Oligomeric proanthocyanidins extracted from grape seeds and pine bark, are powerful bioflavanoids considered the most potent antioxidants, 20 times more potent than Vitamin C and 50 times more than Vitamin E. Extensive studies reveal absolutely no toxicity, birth defects, or allergic reactions to OPC’s and what is so wonderful about them is there ability to seek out and destroy free radicals. Free-radical damage and danger are very real. You are extremely susceptible to them when the body is inflamed and infected.

HOW GOUT CARE WORKSURIC ACID is a metabolic end product following the digestion of purines found in most foods. As uric acid crystallizes in the joints, it procures needle-like formations that begin tearing into the synovial fluid sacks and cartilage. Subsequently, the body storms this assault with white blood cells. This process renders swollen, shiny red, hot painful joint(s) known as the intense inflammation of an acute gout attack. Excess uric acid can also cause pain in the joints without the accompanying 'attack'.
This herbal blend proceeds directly to the root of most gout problems, uric acid production and crystallization. Seeking to unnaturally suppress uric acid production altogether, such as Allopurinol would, can yield potentially dangerous consequences. In order to deal with uric acid properly, you must first slow the production. This segment of uric acid control can easily be attained through a balanced diet, vitamins and minerals, and proper water intake. The complicated part is ensuring that it remain soluble in order for the body to dispose of any excess.
GC® can help enhance the body's ability to keep the uric acid from crystallizing, increases the removal from the blood stream to transport out of the body by way of the urinary disposal system, while also boosting the digestive system's ability to process the purines and dispose of the excess production, BEFORE the point of storage. This combination is fundamental to your success, and often the missing link for those who have dieted alone without success. Slowing the uric acid production, while a crucial component, is only half of the battle. You must trigger the systems of the body to deal with this natural substance in a healthy manner. This herbal blend provides this essential communication.

The importance of vitamins and minerals cannot be stressed enough. They are essential to all living things as a source for vitality, cell protection, cell metabolism, and health in general. With few exceptions, vitamins are not primarily manufactured by the body so they must be obtained through diet and dietary supplements. Unfortunately, obtaining enough through our diet has become increasingly difficult. This is true for several reasons. Please look at the Gout Vitamin page for details about each vitamin and how they benefit you everyday.
This supplement is specifically tailored to the needs of our inflammation ridden and arthritic customers, void of any extra Iron or Niacin, which can both aggravate someone with these conditions.*

Are you pre-diabetic? Already over 100? Two tests are commonly used to diagnose: Fasting blood glucose. Measures blood glucose first thing in the morning before you eat. A normal fasting blood glucose is between 70 to100 mg/dL. You are pre-diabetic if your fasting blood sugar is 101 to 125 mg/dL (5.6 to 6.9 mmol)
Oral glucose tolerance test -- Measures blood glucose after fasting and again 2 hours after drinking a glucose-rich drink. Normal blood glucose is below 140 mg/dL (7.7 mmol) 2 hours after the drink. In pre-diabetes, the 2-hour blood glucose is 140 to 199 mg/dL (7.8 to 11.0 mmol/L). If the 2-hour blood glucose rises to 200 mg/dL (11.1 mmol) or above, you have diabetes.
Whether you are bordering or a fully diagnosed type 2 diabetic, you CAN and SHOULD do something about it. Studies have shown that people can prevent, delay, and even reverse the development of type 2 diabetes through changes in their lifestyle. This often includes weight loss (slow but steady to achieve optimal weight), increased physical exercise, and assisting with the right nutrients/supplements.
Healthy blood glucose and insulin metabolism can be achieved WITHOUT dangerous medications. In fact, many prescription drugs can actually lead to the leptin resistance behind Diabetes development.
Gluco100™ contains GlucoFit, a dietary ingredient extracted from the herb Lagestroemia speciosa. GlucoFits active component, corosolic acid, has shown in scientific studies to support healthy glucose metabolism.*
This formula also includes an extract from the herb Gymnema sylvestre, a small plant native to India. Extracts of Gymnema have been used for centuries by Ayurvedic herbalists for the support of glucose metabolism.*
Diet, water intake, and exercise are the crucial components to recovery and permanent glucose stability. Type 2 diabetic patients have significant issues with inflammation and tissue damage. This causes major system imbalances and can work against the healing process and healthy weight loss.
