A traditional remedy for gout calls for 1/2 to 1 pound of cherries a day. If you do not want to stuff all that cherries into your stomach, you can take tablets containing concentrated cherry juice.
According to a 1950 study of twelve individuals with gout, eating one-half pound of cherries or the equivalent amount of cherry juice prevented attacks of gout. Black, sweet yellow, and red sour cherries were all effective. Since that study, there have been many anecdotal reports of cherry juice as an effective treatment of the pain and inflammation of gout.
Celery juice is another folk remedy for gout that is said to be widely used in Australia.
