Gout is a painful inflammation of a joint caused by a buildup of uric acid crystals deposited in the joint. Uric acid is formed during the natural breakdown of dead tissues in the body. An excess of uric acid in the bloodstream can lead to the formation of crystals in the joints or kidneys (kidney stones). Some good ways to prevent the formation of uric acid crystals include maintaining a healthy body weight (which leaves less body tissue to be broken down), exercising, and drinking plenty of water.

Recommendation:

Lemon

Drink 1–2 drops with 8 oz. (250 ml) of water. Drink plenty of water, and exercise.

Simple Solutions:

Apply 1 drop Soothing Blend on joint to help soothe pain.
