Alkaline Diet to Treat Gout
The foods you eat can affect the levels of different compounds in your bloodstream. In some cases, your diet can affect your risk of developing certain conditions, such as gout, an extremely painful form of arthritis. One way of preventing gout flareups is to avoid foods that cause the production of uric acid, and to instead eat a diet heavy in alkalizing foods, which can help neutralize excess acid in the body.
