Get pain relief without hours on your gout or gout attack.
Baking soda lowers the amount of uric acid in the body, which leads to pain relief.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is an effective natural treatment for gout. This simple and inexpensive home remedy can alleviate gout pain quickly as it balances and alkalizes pH.
The baking soda will help to increase pH levels, which are low in many gout sufferers. Sometimes a decrease in pain is noticed in a matter of hours of drinking the mixture.
How to use
A typical dose of baking soda for gout is 1/2 teaspoon in an 8 ounce glass a water, taken 1-3 times a day.
When Not to Take Baking Soda
Baking soda in water is best taken on an empty stomach and should not be taken on a very full stomach.
Baking soda may be contraindicated with certain health conditions or medications. If you have a chronic health problem, high blood pressure, or those who monitor salt intake or take medications, check with your doctor before taking baking soda for medicinal purposes.
