Sweet Cherry Relief

So, I think I may have mentioned that my foot has been bothering me. After about a week of discomfort I turned to an old friend.

A few years and a lot of pounds ago I had a few battles with gout. If you are not familiar with gout what you need to know is it hurts. I will post some links later for more education on gout but for now trust me it hurts like heck. The treatment is a whole other torture. The prescription I was given destroyed my digestive system.

It was while I read struggling with gout that I discovered the benefits of black cherries. Black cherries are a natural anti inflammatory. It has also worked wonders for many people like myself who have agonized with gout.

I don't think my recent discomfort was full blown gout it didn't hurt near enough, but I still decided to try my old friend pictured above. I am pleased to report, the cherries did it again.

  1. My husband suffered from bouts of gout about every three months or so, he never knew what triggered it. My cousin, who is a nurse, recommended he try black cherry juice (we buy Welch's). He now makes it a part of his morning ritual. He downs about six ounces of black cherry juice daily. His gout has never returned, miracle juice!
