Alternative treatments for gout help avoid the effects of allopurinol. And the effects associated with other medications for gout relief.
One of the keys to controlling your pain level is eating properly. Gout pain is the direct result of excess uric acid in your body. Uric acid comes form purines found in the food we eat. When high purine foods are consumed a large amount of uric acid is produced. Thus, by eating low purine foods we are helping keep our bodies in balance.
