10  Home Remedies for Gout

Uric acid crystals in joints create gout, which causes severe pain, swelling, and inflammation. Gout therapy requires medical attention, but home treatments can lessen symptoms and attack frequency. Ten excellent home cures for gout.


1. Hydration 

Gout attacks are less likely to happen if you drink a lot of water. This is because water flushes out extra uric acid from the body. To stay hydrated, try to drink at least 8–10 glasses of water every day.

2. Cherry Juice

There are chemicals in cherry juice, especially tart cherry juice, that may help lower uric acid levels and reduce inflammation. People with gout may feel better if they drink cherry juice or eat fresh cherries on a daily basis.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

A lot of people say that apple cider vinegar can help with inflammation. One to two tablespoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar mixed with a glass of water and drunk every day may help ease the pain of gout.

4. Ginger

There is menthol in peppermint tea, which is a natural decongestant that can help clear the airways and reduce coughing. Peppermint tea contains menthol.

5. Turmeric

Curcumin, a chemical found in turmeric, is known for its powerful ability to reduce inflammation. Add turmeric to your food or taking turmeric pills might help ease the pain and inflammation that come with gout.

6. Epsom Salt Soaks

To ease the pain of gout, you can soak the joint in warm water mixed with Epsom salt. Epsom salt has magnesium in it, which can help soothe sore muscles and lower swelling.

7. Healthy Diet

Eating a lot of fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean proteins can help you deal with the symptoms of gout. Cutting back on foods high in purines, like red meat, organ meats, and seafood, can also help keep gout attacks from happening.

8. Cold Compress

Putting a cold cloth on the hurt joint can help numb it and lower the swelling and pain. Wrap a towel around a bag of ice or frozen peas and put it on the joint for 15 to 20 minutes at a time.

9. Weight Management

Keeping a healthy weight is important for controlling gout because extra weight can raise uric acid levels and make symptoms worse. A healthy weight can be reached and kept up by exercising regularly and eating a varied diet.

10. Herbal Supplements

Herbal medicines like devil's claw, boswellia, and stinging nettle have been used for a long time to ease the pain of arthritis, including gout. But it's important to talk to a doctor or nurse before starting any herbal products to make sure they're safe and will work for you.
