If you ask the doctors out there… “How is uric acid formed in the body?” 95% of them will reply: “It is because you eat too much of high protein or high purine foods.” This is the common belief most of the gout patients around the world and they will try their best to control the diet in order to avoid future gout attacks.
But the sad fact is that, most of them still suffer from gout attacks, even though they have totally abstained from the high purine diet. So, what is going wrong here? If the hypothesis of the doctors that uric acid is the result of external foods is true, the uric acid levels in the body should be able to be maintained by controlling the diet. It seems like there is something missing out.
New Perspective: How Is Uric Acid Formed In The Body… The Internal Source.
For decades, scientists or medical professionals have been busy drilling on researching what foods lead to high uric acid and trying to invent drugs to suppress the uric acid levels so that the patient can continue to enjoy whatever food they like to eat. This approach is proven to be non-effective judging from the rising number of gout patients around globes. It’s time to look a things at new angle…
Everyday there are billions of body cells die, the dead cells will be broken down through series of complex biochemical reactions. The last building block in the body cell that will be broken down is the DNA. DNA is made of 4 types of bases and out of the four DNA bases, two (adenine & guanine) contains PURINE!!! Part of these bases will be re-cycled to build new cells while the excess will be sent to the liver for degradation to uric acid and then sent to the kidneys for removal through urination.
Source of Purine
Uric acid crystals in joints are very hard to be removed through surgery, especially when the joint is small like those in fingers or toes. This is because urate crystals are very fine and float around, the only to remove them from joint with surgery is by inserting a long needle into the affected joint and suck out all the synovial fluid that contains the uric acid crystals. But this kind of procedure is dangerous in the sense that it expose the joint to secondary infection which will make the condition even worse, that is why this practice (arthroplasty) is not widely practiced by doctors as a treatment for gout.
Dissolving Uric Acid Crystals
Actually, the ONLY effective way to say goodbye to gout forever is by dissolving uric acid crystals in joints. This method makes more sense because it follows the simple common sense of “how it comes, how it goes”. Uric acid crystals in the joint originate from excess uric acid in the blood that seeps into the joint over the years. Thus, urate crystals can be dissolved simply by reversing this pathway.
Temperature and Concentration
There are 2 factors that determine the rate of dissolution of urate crystals. High temperate will increase the rate of collision between molecules and that can increase the probability of dismantling uric acid molecules from the crystal block. Another factor is saturation of the fluid around the crystal, fluid with lower concentration or hypotonic has more spaces to absorb the uric acid molecule thus make it faster for the uric acid crystals to break down.
Understand the nature of dissolution process, then you can help to speed up the removal of the gout crystals by soaking your feet (assuming the affected joint is in your feet) in warm water for 10 to 15 minutes at least once every day. As for the concentration part, you have to drink plenty of water (ionized alkaline water is recommended) frequently so that it can create a uric acid hypotonic internal environment that is optimum for dissolving uric acid crystals in joints.
This method is 100% Natural and proven effective. All you need is a bit of discipline and persistence to follow through.
