“An apple a day keeps the doctor away!” We have all heard this statement throughout our lives. Did you know that an apple a day can keep gout away? Gout is a buildup of crystals in the joints caused by excess uric acid in the blood and is very painful. High levels of this acid can be caused by dehydration, improper kidney function, and poor diet. If left untreated or treated improperly, the gout can spread to other joints.
Cherries are another excellent way to prevent and cure gout. 15 to 16 tart cherries a day can prevent gout from even occurring. The acid and Vitamin C in these fruits have been proven to both prevent and cure gout by reducing the uric acid in the blood without the harmful side effects of prescription drugs.
Home remedies have been treating numerous ailments of the human body for hundreds of years. There are hundreds of them at our disposal and they have grown more prevalent and common over the years. Medical documents, books, and journals have been written on the effectiveness of these home remedies, showing them to be a safe and inexpensive alternative to prescription drugs for minor ailments, with little to no side effects. They have been proven to be essential and very valuable for treating common everyday ailments and for helping to maintain a healthy body. The human body has amazing defenses and healing powers… when it is in balance. Poor diet, malnutrition, poor lifestyle, improper sleep, and a host of other poor choices can throw the body out of balance and ailments can occur. Although these factors are not necessarily the direct cause of sickness and disease, but they make the body less able to protect and heal itself, causing it to be a lot more susceptible to a host of different ailments. Then, if left untreated, the problem will progress. The remedy in and of itself isn’t what really cures you, but the remedy puts the body back in balance, which in turn, the body can protect and heal itself once again.
