Gout is your body’s reaction from an overload of uric acid in your system. Gout as we know it is when this uric acid creates crystals around the joints. These crystals lead to inflammation and a big side-serving of pain.
Gout is most commonly seen as a chronic disease, but the fact of the matter is that it can be treated through simple lifestyle changes.
A few things that you should add to your list of lifestyle changes include:
1. Avoid foods that can cause your gout to act up –
If you are aware of certain foods that trigger your gout attacks or make them worse, make sure to stay away from them as far as possible. These are usually foods like alcoholic drinks, salty fish, spinach, cauliflower and legumes.

2. Drink more water –
Increasing your water intake can help cleanse your system, thus reducing the uric acid levels.
3. Lose weight slowly –
It is important to try and lose weight gradually. If you lose weight too quickly, it can cause kidney stones to form which will only increase your problems. On the bright side, it might make the gout seem less painful!
4. Rest when you have a gout attack –
It is important to move the inflamed areas as little as possible as this may worsen the gout atack.
5. Use a good, natural supplement –
Gout can be treated using a variety of medications, including oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and corticosteroids injected directly into the joint, but a natural supplement which causes no side effects is better. The Manna PH Balance product were formulated to excrete excess uric acid from the body, but also to assist in balancing the PH levels of the body to counteract gout.
