I want to have a drug or natural item to cure gout and not with alot of problems down the line I hear that gout is an underlining problem from another disease that can produce serious other problem including death. What is the truth?

See my post above. Cimetidine, for me, has been a miraculous cure and you don't need a prescription. It is an antacid that neutraizes hydrochoric acid that irritates the esophagus. Figuring that gout is an histaminic reaction to uric acid in the same manner that hydrochloric acid is histominic reaction to hydrochloric acid, I tried it, taking only 200 mg by mouth with water twice daily and it has always cleared up the gout completely within two or three days and will prevent it from swelling up a joint or a foot.

Before I discovered cimetidine, black cherry juice worked somewhat, but is not near as effective for me as cimetidine.

I am not involved in the medical profession. I suppose I should clarify that.
