Gout is a associated with arthritis where uric acid creates crystals and builds up in various joints, often most painful in the large toes.
Gouty arthritis comes when the body is unable to digest protein, and the kidneys are unable to get rid of uric acid. Uric acid crystals may end up in the joints of the large toe, ankles, knees, and other parts of the body. The causes are often dietary. Remove meats, especially pork and red meat. Tobacco, alcohol and coffee may contribute.
Modern medicine uses drugs that help with symptoms but may have toxic side effects.
