Gout Cure at Last

by Donis Fylaktou

Here is my story. It was the middle of the night. I opened my eyes and was awakened by earth shattering pain. My big toe was throbbing. In fact it felt like a towering inferno. I turned on the light and was startled to see that my great toe was 3 times its normal size. It was bright red and red hot, just like a firecracker and the pain was the most severe that I’ve ever experienced by far. The suffering that I had to endure was almost unbelievable.


That was over ten years ago. At the beginning I was having attacks every 6 months. Then gradually I was getting them every 3 months, then every month and eventually every week.

It started at my big toe and then it was moving sometimes in my knees,and generally all around my joints, in my feet. And the pain was agonising.
I have tried all the cures you can imagine.

I tried ACV, lemons, drinking a lot of water, but to no avail. I tried water fasting, juice fasting, baking soda, again without success.
I almost gave up meat, limiting it to only once a week, gave up alcohol completely, again no success. I was living on vegetables, lots and lots of fresh fruit, milk ,cheese beans and so on. My eating habits could not be healthier ,or so I thought. But my gout was worsening.

Then I decided to increase the amount of fruit I was consuming, thinking that if some fruit is healthy, more fruit will be more healthy. Some days I was eating fruit only, others over 10 portions a day. And alas my gout instead of improving it became chronic ,it was there all the time.

I was desperate I did not know what to do. And then one day accidentally I read an article about fructose, which is contained in fruit, in large quantities. It said that it increases uric acid, in a matter of minutes. Fructose is also present in table sugar, and in HFCS, which is used in soft drinks. I put two and two together and realised what I was doing wrong.

I stopped eating fruit and all other sugars, for a period of 3 weeks,and by magic I saw a dramatic
improvement. Pain was gone, swelling was gone, I was fine.

I reintroduced fruit again in my diet but reducing them to 1 or 2 a day, and my gout almost disappeared.

I do eat more meat now, and occasionally have an alcoholic drink, and thank God everything seems to be fine.

Fructose was my enemy.

Hi
My gout still seems to be well under control.I wish I had discovered this fructose method years ago,
it would have saved me a lot of bother and pain.
Before I could hardly walk round the house, now I am walking with ease about 2 miles a day.
I am now eating more meat and other "purine rich foods"but taking care not to go over the limit. I also drink either
a glass of wine or a glass of beer every day.I limited my fruit intake to 1 or 2 a day the only exception being
cherries ,which do not seem to have any ill effects.I have not tested cakes or soft drinks yet but I am planning
to introduce them gradually in small amounts.
Some gout sufferers might commment that they do not eat much fruit, but thet still get gout. The answer might be
that they probably have too many soft drinks or cakes.
It would be interesting to know if somebody else had any success, curing gout by cutting off fructose like I did, or
is mine the only case.
Best regards

Hello Donis,

I can't find the words to express how impressed I am with your testimony of the experience you had with gout and your findings.

I am so grateful that you took the time to write about your findings with fructose. This could possibly be the link that thousands of people have been looking for each time they have a horribly painful bout of gout.

I went through a bout myself several years ago and until I experienced if for myself I had no idea how painful and helpless you feel when dealing with such a disorder. I wouldn't take the medication the doctor gave me because of the horrible side effects it can have on your kidneys and bladder. I turned to cherries and pure cherry juice. But your findings about fructose is just amazing. There is fructose in so much processed foods, it's no wonder gout is spreading like a wildfire.

Thank you so much Donis, I'm going to post your testimony on the page I wrote about Home Remedy for Gout, I hope you don't mind. I will give you full credit for this discovery.

Grandma
