What To Eat For Gout
This is a bit of mind dump in regard to some of the best things to do, to be successful at killing gout.
Supplements have their place. As a nutritionist, I have learned that there are so many different minerals, vitamins, enzymes, cofactors, and essential substances that make the biochemistry of our bodies work correctly. Theoretically, we should get them from the food we eat...are you starting to see the problem?
If you ask anyone, (go ahead, ask yourself!) they will say, "oh yeah, I eat pretty healthy...". NOT. It's almost impossible with these highspeed, drive-by kind of lives we live in this modern world.
The fact of the matter is, most of what we call food...is crap. As Michael Pollan says, "food-like substances"...our bodies barely recognize this crap at the cellular level.
Here's the real problem; most of the soil that grows the foods that we eat, or the foods that the animals eat that we eat, are depleted and nutritionally devoid. That's where supplements come in.
