Gout Home Remedies
using Apple Cider Vinegar

"Easy to use, natural gout home remedies!"

Gout home remedies involving apple cider vinegar, either ingested or applied topically, can be used as natural alternative treatments to help relieve gout symptoms.

Even though there is no scientific research evaluating the effect of ACV on gout, many people on the net have attested to apple cider vinegar's effectiveness.

What is Gout?

Gout is a form of arthritis that causes intense joint pain, often affecting the large joint of the big toe. Gout can also occur in the hands, wrists, knees, ankles and feet. The affected joints become red, inflamed and very tender. The symptoms occur suddenly and often at night.

High levels of uric acid in the blood can lead to urate crystal formation and it's the accumulation of these crystals around joints that causes gout.

Conventional treatment involves taking medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), steroid medications and colchicine.

To reduce the pain and inflammation of a gout attack you should try to:

  • Not drink alcoholic beverages
  • Eat less seafood and red meat
  • Reduce the consumption of high fat dairy products
  • Eat less processed food such as white flour and refined sugar

Procedure for Gout Home Remedies
using Apple Cider Vinegar

Unfortunately, conventional medications for gout can cause many uncomfortable side effects and are not always effective.
This has prompted many to try alternative treatments such as apple cider vinegar for gout relief as outlined in the following two procedures:

1) Apple Cider Vinegar Drink

After taking the ACV drink for just two days, many people have reported a reduction in swelling and pain of the affected area.

Mix the following ingredients into an 8 ounce glass of water and drink 3 times a day with meals:
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey (Optional - not recommended for diabetics)
  • 2 teaspoons organic apple cider vinegar (Use an organic ACV which contains the "mother of vinegar")

2) Apple Cider Vinegar Soak

This can be used along with the ACV drink or by itself.
  • Soak a cloth in undiluted ACV and wrap it around the affected area for at least 15 minutes. Or simply immerse the toe or other affected area in a vinegar bath made by mixing 1 cup (250 ml) of ACV into 3 cups (750 ml) of water.

What if Vinegar is not Enough?

As the comments below show, apple cider vinegar can be very effective in relieving gout symptoms for many people. But not everybody will experience the same level of relief with ACV.

If you are looking to reduce your gout symptoms through dietary and other natural means, then I highly recommend you check out the e-book written by Joe Barton called "The Gout Remedy Report".

Joe, an alternative medical researcher and author, explains how you can go about relieving gout symptoms with many other different natural remedies as well as lifestyle and diet changes.

My partner used to suffer from gout year after year.

We decided to try the method published on your site.

We combined:
  1. The bathing of the foot,

  2. with the drinking of ACV following your recipe.

We did both treatments 3 times a day. A week later, my husband was back at work!

We did the treatments in 2018 and my husband has been free of gout ever since!

Thank you!

Good luck to all gout sufferers!

I too am suffering from gout, from time to time, since a few years.

It’s my cab driver who told me to look up ACV as a way to control it and I am really looking forward to trying it.

I will tell you more about it later after testing it.

Thanks to apple-cider-vinegar-benefits.com and to the gout home remedy!

Hello, a month ago I came down with a case of gout in my big toes and ankles.

I started taking apple cider vinegar, in 24 hours I saw a big improvement and now I just have a small discomfort in my toes.

THANK YOU for your advice.

I thank this website for making me discover that with apple cider vinegar (I lived in Normandy for more than twenty years) my severe gout attacks have started to diminish.

I had to use a Wheelchair at one time, because my feet were so swollen and sore.

Since then, with three glasses of cider vinegar along with lemon before each meal, I am very optimistic for the future.

I feared a phlebitis etc, but it was just gout.

Thank you apple cider vinegar and good luck to all fellow gout sufferers.

Just came across this site a short time ago, have been to the store and purchased a bottle of apple cider vinegar with fingers crossed for good results.

Been a sufferer of gout for some years now [too many to remember] to the extent where I have been restricted to bed if I could walk that far [assisted] or the nearest chair for three or four days.

Medication gave some relief but then there was the after effects of chronic stomach disorder resulting in massive attacks of constipation which necessitated in trips to emergency in the hospital at 2\3am. 

At times my knees have been swollen to the size of a football and my feet so swollen you can barely see any toes.

So it is with great anticipation that I look forward to obtaining positive results.

Best of luck to all you sufferers of GOUT, unless you have been there you will never know the pain.

Will keep you informed of proceedings.
Cheers Bob T.

I have had a very painful swelling on a finger joint for over six years: this was diagnosed as gout.

At around the same time as this was diagnosed, a blood test came back with the news that I had excessive acid in my system.

Three weeks ago I started taking two tablespoons of cider vinegar (the good stuff), twice a day.

Within 48 hours the pain had gone. Within a week I noticed the swelling had reduced.

A week later the swelling had reduced to the point that I could see my finger joint again. At this point the hard masses that I have tolerated for six years are spongy and jelly-like.

I don't know if the problem will disappear completely, but I have absolutely no complaints so far.

I treat my high blood pressure with some tenoretic.
This remedy increases the level of uric acid and this triggers the onset of severe gout attacks.

But thanks to an ACV drink with honey - and the help of an anti-inflammatory cream applied on the sore joint - the pain subsides in a few of days.

I follow this home-remedy treatment with a medical exam to measure the level of my uric acid.

Now, with the cider vinegar, there have been no more attacks for four years.

Good evening,
My father is 80 years old.
He’s been suffering from heart failure since 2 years. He’s very anxious and since one year also has the gout.

Today, his gout makes him more miserable than ever. He can’t use any medication such as Las-six ou others.

After doing some searching on the Internet, I discovered that ACV could help.

I will begin to give him some ACV this evening, 2 spoonfuls in 1/3 glass of water.

I hope that this will work.
Thanks for all your testimonials.

I am a gout sufferer, it is very painful.

I take a bottle of water to which I add 8 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and I drink this brew all day long.

In addition, it also refreshes, and I pay attention to what I eat, no alcohol and no fat.

Very very happy to have discovered this site.

For a few days I was feeling a pain in my left toe but this morning I could not walk.

As a result I researched the internet and made this very nice discovery about apple cider vinegar that I have known for other good reasons.

I therefore drank a good table spoon of apple cider vinegar, a moment later the pain was gone.

I love red meat (steak, biltong and boerewors), but in addition to me being a distance runner, caused acute gout attacks and the forming of a tophi knob on my toe.  

Once I started drinking ACV in water, mixed with alkaline powder or citrus soda, the pain subsided.
I also drink smoothies now with celery and black cherries and bananas in it.
Gout is something of the past!

II occasionally have very painful gout attacks in the big toe.

Lately, after some research, I came across this site.
I did not believe it, but I figured it could not hurt to try, it is only vinegar.

The first day I took, around noon, one tablespoon (15 mL) of apple cider vinegar instead of a teaspoon (5 ml).
And to my amazement, it worked. After two or three hours I was not hurting, there were just a little tenderness.

I took one tablespoon (15 ml) of vinegar that night.
I still took two tablespoons (30 mL) of vinegar on the second day with the same result.

The third day, I still drank a tablespoon (15 ml) of vinegar.
I have nothing, neither tenderness nor pain, instead I spent half the day in bed, sick as if I had drunk too much.

I think this is due to an excess of vinegar in the stomach.
So caution with dosing and possibly eat along with drinking the vinegar.

Have been experiencing the worst and longest gout attack I've ever had on my foot and ankle.

It's been two very painful months and several meds that made me feel ill until now.

Started drinking ACV three days ago and the swelling is almost gone.  Still some pain, but nothing like before. 

Not sure if it's a coincidence, but it certainly seems like the ACV has done the trick!

I am a 39 year old man.

It's been three years since my first crisis occurred. Unfortunately, despite the treatment and monitoring of food recommendations, at the end of each treatment the gout came back quicker each time.

My last Colchicine treatment lasted for six months from March to August 2015, in addition to ruining my digestive system I felt a not too violent gout attack 48 hours after the end of treatment. (I had 2 large seizures during the treatment)

It was not painful enough to prevent me from working and thus going to a doctor. I did not want to renew the Colchicine treatment which left me each time in a pitiful state.

I went on the net to find a home remedy that could help me. I came across several testimonials (here especially but not only) in favour of cider vinegar.

I tried it the same day and 36 hours latter I had almost no pain. 5 days after that, no more pain and stiffness.

It's been six months now since I have been taking ACV, not always very regularly, but I have had no crises since. Not even the feel of a crisis beginning to happen, except on rare occasions I have had a slight tingling.
And no more dietary restrictions.

Try it, test it, if it works you will not regret it. It's not very good to taste, but it really works.

Good luck to all gout sufferers.

According to a recent article found in the web site, www.doctorshealthpress.com:

"ACV contains antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. It is full of nutrients, like potassium, amino acids, calcium, and iron, which can help reduce toxin buildup and help rid the body of excess levels of uric acid. ACV also contains acetic acid, an ingredient that is effective at preventing and treating gout."

According to some researchers, acetic acid turns alkaline inside the body and forms a pH-balanced environment that prevents gout.

G'day fellow gout sufferers, how's this for a first time gout attack.

I had a big week on the seafood, beef and beer big time then back to work on the Monday morning I felt slight pain in my left knee, strange, had no falls that I recall. Anyway I drive tour coaches for a living and at 2.00pm at Mt Cootha I pulled up for a group photo and thought hang on, why can't I lift my left leg to get out of drivers seat? Pain, pain, pain like I have never experienced, then trying to walk to the loo was another ordeal.  

Wow, the big fella's first KO, less painful being in the boxing ring, anyway the Doc did the blood tests and the uric acid levels were sky high, so time for medication for the rest of my days.
Well that's not my scene so I did all the studies on natural remedies, acv being the talk of the town was my first choice, cherries also sound the way and coconut water also another option. Give myself a big hit with these 3 products and you beaut, no more gout.
Also watched my intake of high purine foods. Over time I went back to my bad habits and stopped taking my 3 natural healers and with Christmas and new year just passed, guess who has just been sat on their backside with a massive gout attack, yep, stupid me.
No doctors, no medication, straight back into my 3 natural healers, now day 3 and starting back into exercise with no pain, actually feel really good as well.
I do believe I shall be staying on this little easy to do programme because I still want to be strong enough to chew the ears off Mike Tyson. 

Really hope this will work for you guys as it has for me, good luck.

Hello everyone,

I have suffered from gout for over 20 years.

I have taken medicines like everyone, but after a few years my stomach has said "no."

I have not yet done the apple cider vinegar test, but as a crisis is in the making for this morning, I long to be able to do the test tomorrow.

You can join me in a chain of solidarity by adding a testimonial to this page.

I hope this will be a good solution because I can't take it anymore.

At 63 I want to live my last days without suffering.

Thanks to this site which is really good.

Braggs ACV is nothing short of a miracle, for some, not all.

A teaspoon in the morning, a teaspoon in the evening.Day one:slight reduction in swelling. Day two: not much change. Day three:Gout is completely gone: and I mean completely! No swelling, no pain.

This is the best stuff on the planet for gout and for your health in general.

P.S. Raw ACV must contain the "MOTHER" to work it's magic. God bless you Father Bragg.

ACV took care of my gout problems.

I tried the honey mix, fruit and soda combinations, all gross tasting to me.

I make mine by putting 2 cubes of chicken broth (I season that with some Cayenne pepper, heat for 2 minutes in the Microwave, then add 2 tbls of ACV. I have 2 to 3 of these everyday.

After 2 months the pain of just having gout disappeared and now, after 6 months, I have have +90% of my range of motion back in my big toe and no pain at all.

Walking is painless now and am back out hiking like I was 20 again.

Hello to all unfortunate gout sufferers like I was until yesterday!

Indeed, following a severe gout attack in the joints of the right foot in May 2007, my doctor gave me a prescription of Zyloric that was renewable every six months. So I had no more problems drinking 2 liters of beer per day!!

But in June 2015, when I returned for a renewal of this valuable drug, the doctor said "no" because Zyloric could not be used continuously!!

I told myself, I've taken this medication so long, I must be cured!
The holidays came and went, and so did the beer bottles!! Life was good !!

But Friday morning September 18, I woke up to a big red swollen and painful toe!! Darn it, the gout had come back!!

I took 400mg + of illico nurofen and 2 Zyloric pills that I still had left.

Saturday morning was very bad, I had trouble putting on my shoes to go to work!
Saturday evening I checked the internet and came across this natural gout treatment site.

Sunday first thing in the morning, I rushed out to buy organic cider vinegar + honey and Vichy Celestin, following the advice of people that were healed.

I got home at 9 o'clock and I made a mixture of 3 tablespoons of cider vinegar, 1 spoonful of honey + 6 tablespoons of Vichy Celestin. It was a strange drink, but when you're hurting...!!

2nd mixture was taken at noon without any noticeable change.

3rd mixture was taken at 9 pm but then my toe was much less red!!
When I woke up on Monday morning at 6 am I was without pain!! And no, I am not a liar!! For me, apple cider vinegar is a miracle!

If only I had known about ACV before, instead of destroying my kidneys with Zyloric! That is to say that even at 58, there is still a lot to learn !!

On the lighter side, I prefer to stop the Zyloric than beer!
To your health and try it!!

Now, do you think we can put apple cider vinegar in beer and still have the same healing effects !!

I have had arthritis since I was a child and gout in most joints for years.

I found the ACV remedy online and have been using it  because it works.

Mixing  (1/8 teaspoon)  of bicarbonate of soda in with the vinegar and letting it sit for a minute will get rid of the strong vinegar taste and make a pleasant tea that can be sweetened with raw honey.

I have seen people walk without a cane or pain after 2 weeks of ACV use while they were waiting for knee replacement surgery (I would never have).

I tell everyone about this cure, not just for gout so pass the word to others!

I thought I had cellulitis or phlebitis. I'm prone to blood clots and it scared me. It was on the top of my foot, in my ankle and on my shIn is where it started.

I only thought you could get it in your toe till I was talking to a lady. She said that looks like gout, so I got online and I had ACV that I used in my dogs water. Her pH was high and it helped her.

Needless to say, within an hour of taking ACV I was able to move my ankle. That night I got the best sleep. My foot has been hurting for over 15 days and it was starting to scare me .

I do believe ACV work and I am going to continue to take it. I am 60 and do have some arthritis.

I always wondered why my great grandmother drank a cup of lemon water every day, now I know its for the acidity.

I am also going to get some black cherry capsules, that won't hurt either.

I’ve had gout in many joints before and was taking Allopurinol years ago, but switched to Vit-C.

Occasionally I’d get a flare-up starting but I’d kill it with 1TB of Baking Soda/water and a few Ibuprofen, gone over night or in a day or two.  

I sometimes replace my beer with a mix of ACV/Lemon Juice/Baking Soda/water.
All was good but my left great toe got a first time attack I could not shake. Toe swelled then my foot, then my ankle, and after 2-3 weeks of eating 12-15 Ibuprofen a day and randomly taking ACV/BS/Lemon Juice, turmeric pills, things did not look good.
I was on crutches; seen doc got a 14 day burst of Prednisone.  After taking Prednisone toe/foot was still swelled, but doc would not give me any more prednisone but instead Allopurinol.
2 more weeks past, my foot was actually getting worse.  Was about to return to doc and say I told you so, I need more prednisone but instead I stopped taking the Baking Soda and took only 2 TB ACV, 1 TB Lemon Juice, with water three times a day.  By morning my foot was better, after 3 days swelling was gone!
Baking soda is great for short term fast fix (alkalizes the body) but after weeks I think it started to cause water retention.  I will finish out the Allopurinol perscription but will not refill, instead I will take ACV and Vit-C daily.  

On a side note; For a Gout fix I question if the RAW ACV is that much better than the Pasteurized ACV since both should have equals amount of acetic acid right?  The RAW costs about 30% more and has less processing.  Also in my area Braggs costs a lot more than Heinz for a comparable product (raw vs. raw / past . vs. past.).  I would avoid those cheap bargain/store brands and get a good name brand.

And FYI, this past gout attack was triggered by alternate day fasting!  Your uric acid level increases greatly during a fast, Google it.

Growing up I always smelled vinegar and when my mother was in her 20's, she always complained about her feet hurting.  She was not a heavy drinker.

I got my first attack in my late 30's (2002) but I didn't know what it was until a few years later when it became unbearable.

I've drank beer 4 times since November 2014 and no more than 3 per setting with about 3 to 4 shots of vodka.  I love smoked meats, now all of that being said, I take Colcys, Indomethicin, Viocidin and Prednizone
Braggs ACV is awesome, I try to keep 3 to 4 bottles around along with cherry juice and celery seed capsules.
I am going to take 8 capsules of cherry extract, 4 celery seeds and a shot of ACV with approximately 8 oz of ph 9 water.
I started the pills on Friday, and I was still in pain.  I started the AVC every other hour and now I can move with pain, I'm so excited, that I may not have to miss work tomorrow.  Cherry extract and celery seeds are part of the regime.

I woke up Sunday morning at 4 am by a gout attack and I was in tears! An abominable Sunday and Sunday night ending Monday!

I started my treatment with cider vinegar Monday morning, after the opening of the first store that could supply me with ACV.

Monday night, I managed to sleep, Tuesday, to walk without to much pain and Wednesday morning was wonderful! I hardly feel anything now!

I drank 3 glasses a day, and had 2 toe baths a day by making a bandage on the foot and pouring the pure vinegar on it for 20 min.

Great! Thank you!

So with work less than 4 hours away and being desperate, I have been taking prednisone 3x a day and have had a 1/4 mug chaser of ACV and 6+ black cherry capsules.

This is an evil painful affliction, can't lose my job but what can you do when you cannot bend your damn ankle.

I have cut out beef and alcohol. I wonder how many sufferers would love to chop the effected toe or finger off if it was an end! Sadly it obviously wouldn't but it's a thought

Well I'll see how this goes, good luck everyone, grit those teeth!

In October 2014 I discovered that I was suffering from gout. My toes were numb and almost paralyzed for two years.

I thought I had arthritis and so I bared the pain. Then, in October, came the crisis. Tophi appeared at the end of my toes. It was so ugly one would have thought that I had gangrene. I was scared, of course, and I turned to alternative medicine to avoid hospitalization.

Apple cider vinegar saved me. I took foot baths in apple cider vinegar, twice a day while swallowing a tablespoon after every meal. After one week the swelling in my foot had disappeared as well as the tophi.

It has been two months since I have been drinking apple cider vinegar morning and evening . You can be sure that I will continue this remedy which, to me, seems miraculous.

In addition, it is good for the skin, for blood circulation, diabetes, etc.

It is a true elixir of youth.

I had so much energy, I could do anything. I walk with less pain than I have experienced anytime over the past two years.

Do I recommend it? It works for me. That's all I can say. I hold my bottle of vinegar close to my heart. No one is going to take it away from me. I am hooked for life on this elixir.

Thank you, oh my vinegar !!!

If you are prone to gout attacks the ACV treatment can work.

It didn't work for me as a cure during an attack. I started drinking two tsp. in water 2-3 times a day while also using  meds, mostly allopurinol.

It took about three weeks before I noticed results from the ACV. Now I am taking no medication, just the ACV and I haven't had a problem with the gout in three months.

I have suffered from gout for about 4 years on/off.

I was started on oral colchicine which worked beautifully initially but the next episode of gout made me so sick I felt like passing out. Then I was given endometicin which worked wonders but started giving me severe stomach ache.

I have given the Bragg cider vinegar a go but it did nothing good for me, sorry guys who swore by it that it works for them. It rather gave me a symptom like dysentery/diarrhoea. I got frightened to give it a try again.

All the best to those of who it has worked out for them.

Stay blessed and gout free.

I have recently moved to singapore and I don't know what caused my body to get gout so frequently. I have tried many things to cure the pain that I have been getting with frequent gout attacks.

I did try the apple cider vinegar. I think what is also important to mention is the quality of the vinegar.

I have tried one particular brand and it works so well I can tell the difference and when I go to the bathroom, the urine that flows out is quite different without the vinegar.

I did have harden stools though from drinking this. But while I was on the vinegar supplement I did not have any pain and when i got off the vinegar I had a gout pain instantly.

I tried switching brands of vinegar (I was being a cheapskate with a 3 dollar bottle) and it doesn't work

I think that people who have had no effects with using apple cider vinegar can try various brands of vinegar because I think the quality of the vinegar does make a big difference.

First, I am the worst of all skeptics. That being said, I could not walk this morning with the onset of another round of gout.

I gave the ACV a try before breakfast and I must say, the swelling in my feet has gone down , I'm much more comfortable and actually hobbling around this afternoon!

I also took a couple of Aleve in tandem, but I've been on the Aleve for 3 days without any noticeable relief. I'm impressed........and will continue to use this for the simple reason that it just works.

Long story short I tried ACV last night at about 6pm. 7 hours later my gout got worse and I was going through a second gout attack, which never happened before.

I'm afraid to go back to ACV and give it another try.  I've come across on a number forums where ACV did not help gout sufferers, it actually makes it worse.

It's been a long time since I've been suffering from gout. Besides, its aftermath has propagated a bit on my fingers, elbows, knees, ankles and my toes and fingers.

I can not seem to control the disease properly, especially as tophi has appeared on my 2 feet. (heels)

I wonder if there is a remedy to eliminate the tophi because it bothers me and deprive me of wearing my shoes properly.

I am not the only one whose foot, ankle, knees, and more have been affected by gout! (Perhaps the only one diagnosed as Staph/Cellulitis in ER, when my left foot, ankle, pain shooting up my leg sent me to ER.) I knew the excruciating pain that takes your breath away and brings tears to your eyes was awfully familiar.

I felt certain it was gout when I went to ER. Nonetheless, I did take the antibiotics, with less than ideal results.

I believe the ACV taken before going to ER is what reduced the swelling somewhat not the meds. It's two weeks later, I'm still in pain, especially toe joints, and my whole left foot, as well as right big toe. The swelling is reduced, but the pain , while less, is still there.

My gout attacks have rarely lasted this long, as I recall. I used ACV last attack with great success, but could not find the site when this hit.

I had a recent GERD flare-up, only 1 week before this.
They can not stretch my throat yet and I can barely swallow my own saliva. This left me fearful at drinking vinegar, afraid it may leave me unable to swallow at all. Pain was too excruciating to sit at a computer, but I found a Baking Soda cure on my cell and tried that with little effect.

I am going back to the ACV. It worked within 48 hours last time, it is still in both feet, and I must be able to walk!

Thank you so much for sharing your personal stories. I know it is not an easy thing to do. But, yours have been so helpful to me, given me hope. I hope this may helps others, too.

PS: I thought my knee pain was gout when it became unbearable, but feared I was alone in gout spreading to other joints. I am not. You are not, if you too have this painful condition.

I am long time gout sufferer, having it affect a big toe, both ankles, and both knees over the years.

The last gout attack on my left wrist was the absolute worst. Always went to doctor and got indocin to treat it. Since this attack happened on a Saturday morning and I recently learned ACV helps treat gout, skipped the ER and bought some Bragg organic ACV.

The attack was so bad, 3 doses during the day did not help. Was going to ER Sunday AM if not better.

Finally fell asleep Saturday night and woke up with swelling and pain greatly reduced! Took 3 more doses during the day and Monday AM could actually close my hand some what.

Took about 2 weeks to get rid of symptoms 100%. (Gout in the wrist affects tendons along with the joints).

I try and take a couple doses everyday, if I forget I am really aware when I feel an attack coming to take 3 doses of ACV per day and drink lots of water.

No major attacks for 2 years, and still have a big filet mignon and a few beers now and then.

Anyone suffering with gout attacks, should try this treatment.

I was having a lot of pain in my right foot.

Tried drinking apple cider vinegar containing the mother.  20 minutes later, my foot swelled and turned bright red.

The pain doubled.  Acv definitely did not work for me.

At the first sign of a gout attack, I automatically respond by taking a glass of water mixed with 2 or 3 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar.

I always get good results; the gout symptoms decrease dramatically and my ability to walk improves remarkably.

Take apple cider vinegar in the morning before breakfast, it helps to destroy the body toxins and to lose weight as well, since apple cider vinegar dissolves fat.

If you have an attack of gout, take 2 dessert spoons (20 ml) of cider vinegar plus 1 spoon of honey in a mug of warm water 6 times in the first 24 hours.

Then one or 2 doses per day as needed.

I take a cupful every day for arthritis. I buy mine from Normandy France. This was recommended by a doctor from Kent England.

Believe me, it works.

I am currently in gout crisis for the last 3 days.

I tried the recipe I found on this page with apple cider vinegar that I have procured commercially (I can not guarantee if it was good or not).

I started last night but I think it's going from bad to worse, since yesterday I could still manage to walk, this is no longer the case today.

So what could the problem be? Why there is there not a small improvement?
Thank you.

Hello everyone, thank you for this great site.

I have suffered from gout since 2002 and took "zylloric" medication every day.

For the last 6 months I've been drinking apple cider vinegar and it's fantastic.

I don't have any more gout attacks and my uric acid levels have become normal.

Thank you very much.
