Gout Started in Youth, Now Increasing
Dear Ted, I have followed you on earth clinic and was looking for advice. I am a 30 year old Asian male suffering with gout since I was 18. I have been oil pulling with coconut oil for two months and have been taking 1 teaspoon of baking soda 1-2 daily for a month. But lately my gout attacks have been frequent like 2-3 times per week. I know the importance of diet and to avoid high purine foods (ie red meats, seafoods). I do have tophi on my toes and side of my foot. I am hoping for any advice that can help me more. I do not wish to take any medications. I have just graduated chiropractic school and gout makes it difficult for me to pursue my career and help others.
Any advice will greatly be appreciated. Thank you.
