Here’s the best natural treatment:

1. Limit your diet to only vegetables, fruit, and water until the attack is over. Take 400 mg of boswellia extract every eight hours, and drink 10 ounces of pure cherry juice every four hours. In all but the worst cases, you’ll see relief within 24 hours.

2. Once it’s gone, prevention is important. The condition is genetic and will return if you don’t take the proper measures.
First of all, limit dietary protein to the minimum you need to be healthy. This often means eating animal protein only once or twice a week. The worst protein in this regard is the red meats and seafood, such as shrimp and shellfish.
Next, limit your alcohol intake. Alcohol, particularly beer and wine, tends to block the ability of the kidney to excrete uric acid, and can precipitate an attack.
Third, watch out for aspirin and certain supplements, particularly anything that contains yeast, niacin, inositol, RNA, or DNA. Also, watch out for the sugar fructose. You’ll find large amounts in soft drinks. Too much will raise the uric acid level and cause gout.

Take low dose Lithium (10- 15mg bd ) and Vit C (2g bd)- can prevent recurrent attack of gout. Vit C reduce uric acid level and lithium make it more soluble so prevent it from crystallize in the joint.

Follow these measures until you can verify that you are keeping your blood uric acid level in the normal range.
