ACV and Baking soda

I have suffered from gout for quite a few years. For the very longest time I thought it was an old sports injury recurring in my ankle. It would start in the ankle and by two days spread sometimes to the toe.
Unbearable seething pain that rakes over your entire body. Like someone taking pliers and trying to rip out your entire nerve endings through your toes. This barely describes the pain. Something like a toe should never hurt that bad, ever.
I have read many reports on Apple Cider Vinegar (it absolutely must have the “mother”) helping with gout relief and also Baking Soda. Here’s what I do and I have been gout free for a good couple of years now. Every night before bed I take a teaspoon (I eyeball it) of baking soda and a tablespoon of the ACV with about 6-8 ounces water and mix it up. It will fizz so be sure the glass is high enough. Drink it down and no more gout attacks.
Now I will admit sometimes I am really stupid and forget about the horrific pain that debilitates me for days and as such forget to take my cure. Then on top of it I will have some beer and bad foods over a long weekend and I will start to feel that ping of unbearable pain. If this happens try the mix about 3-10 times a day.
I know what everybody says about High Blood Pressure, but high blood pressure is better than having to saw your leg off with a rusty knife. I can fix the High Blood Pressure by cutting out the rest of the sodium for a few days, but gout is a killer.
Why it is Prescribed
This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.
How it Works
Sodium bicarbonate comes as a tablet and powder to take by mouth. Sodium bicarbonate is taken one to four times a day, depending on the reason you take it. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take sodium bicarbonate exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.
If you are using sodium bicarbonate as an antacid, it should be taken 1-2 hours after meals, with a full glass of water. If you are using sodium bicarbonate for another reason, it may be taken with or without food. Do not take sodium bicarbonate on an overly full stomach.
Dissolve sodium bicarbonate powder in at least 4 ounces of water. Measure powdered doses carefully using a measuring spoon.
Do not use sodium bicarbonate for longer than 2 weeks unless your doctor tells you to. If sodium bicarbonate does not improve your symptoms, call your doctor.
Do not give sodium bicarbonate to children under 12 years of age unless your doctor tells you to.

Sodium bicarbonate may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:
- increased thirst

If you have any of the following symptoms, stop taking sodium bicarbonate and call your doctor immediately:
- severe headache
- upset stomach
- vomit that resembles coffee grounds
- loss of appetite
- frequent urge to urinate
