Maintain Your Self Confidence Prevent And Tackle Keloids : Using Swissgarde Nutritional and Herbal Alternative For Keloids

When the skin is injured, fibrous tissue, called scar tissue, forms over the wound to repair and protect the injury. In some cases, scar tissue grows excessively, forming smooth, hard growths called keloids. Keloids can be much larger than the original wound. They’re most commonly found on the chest, shoulders, earlobes, back of the head and cheeks. However, keloids can affect any part of the body. Although keloids aren’t harmful to your health, they may create cosmetic concerns.

WHAT CAUSES KELOIDS ON THE BACK OF THE HEAD?
Keloid develops from a scar of injured skin. The scar tissue is made up of fibrous tissue and collagen. Keloid forms when there is an uncontrolled overgrowth of fibrous tissue. Not everyone who has skin injury will get a keloid, but some people are more prone to develop keloid than others.
The exact reason is still not understood. However, there is a genetic predisposition for developing a keloid. It means if anyone in your family has a keloid, you may be susceptible to develop keloid after a skin injury. Men and women are equally affected. People from Asian and African origin are more likely to get keloids. Keloid is not common in children and aged individuals.
Keloid on the back of the head occurs due to many reasons. It can occur from a healed scar left behind after some surgical work on the back of the head. It may also appear from the scar of the healed abscess. The skin on the back of the head may get injured sometime while cutting hair. Cuts and scrapes in such cases can cause keloid.

For more information call 📲 me now 2347038574473, 2348074256315


WHAT SYMPTOMS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH KELOIDS?
Keloids occur from the overgrowth of scar tissue. Symptoms occur at a site of previous skin injury   symptoms of keloids can include:
• a localized area that is flesh-color-pink, or red in color
• a lumpy or ridged area of skin that’s usually raised
• an area that continues to grow larger with scar tissue over time
• an itchy patch of skin
While keloid scars may be itchy, they’re usually not harmful to your health. You may experience discomfort, tenderness, or possible irritation from your clothing or other forms of friction. In rare instances, you may experience keloid scarring on a significant amount of your body. When this occurs, the hardened, tight scar tissue may restrict your movements.
Keloids are often more of a cosmetic concern than a healthy one. You may feel self-conscious if the keloid is very large or in a highly visible location, such as an earlobe or on the face. Sun exposure or tanning may discolor the scar tissue, making it slightly darker than your surrounding skin. This can make the keloid stand out even more than it already does. Keep the scar covered when you’re in the sun to prevent discoloration.

WHEN TO SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION
Keloids typically don’t require medical attention, but you may want to contact your doctor if growth continues, you develop additional symptoms, or you want to have the keloids surgically removed.There are herbal and alternative remedies that can be employed, as this article will show.
Keloids are benign, but uncontrolled growth may be a sign of skin cancer. After diagnosing keloid scarring by visual exam, your doctor may want to perform a biopsy to rule out other conditions. This involves taking a small sample of tissue from the scarred area and analyzing it for cancerous cells.
Keloids are one of the most difficult skin irritations to tackle, but faced with this condition, herbal supplements can come to your rescue. So what are some of those herbal extracts that can help you clear or prevent keloids?
Apple Cider Vinegar
No home remedy list will be complete without apple cider vinegar. It is known to be very effective in getting rid of keloids because it helps minimize the redness and even the size of the keloid.
Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera is a natural healer in almost every skin problem. It helps reduce inflammation present in keloids. Also, it keeps the keloid skin moist. While Aloe Vera is known to be a good home remedy for hair loss, people become shocked once they learn that Aloe Vera can also be effective in getting rid of keloids. Aloe Vera is revitalizing and can help the skin regenerate. This can also help scars heal faster so people will not have a problem with the possible appearance of keloids on the skin.
 Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is an essential oil. The oil is derived from Melaleuca Alternifolia plant leaves. It is a shrub-like tree found mostly in Australia. Tea tree oil has been used to treat many different conditions. It is effective for treating athlete’s foot, acne, boil, warts, genital infection, etc. It is remarkable oil which has valuable healing property for keloids. It can be found in various products such as soaps, creams, lotions, bath oils etc.
Tea tree oil contains many compounds which work together to produce its healing abilities. The compounds are mainly terpenes, Cymone’s, terpinols etc. According to many researchers, tea tree oil may not be directly involved in reducing the keloid scar, but its anti-inflammatory property, as well as its ability to reduce itching and burning, g may be a great help as these symptoms are also present in keloid. This mild anesthetic activity can help to heal as well as reduce the scar tissue.
HOW TO PREVENT KELOID
1.  Avoid Shaving
Avoid or be careful when shaving to prevent nicks and cuts.
2.  Take Care if You Have Acne
If you have acne, don’t pop pimples and maintain a proper skin care regimen.  Swissgarde Tbasic range can help in this regard. 
3.  Avoid Body Piercings and Tattoos
 Keloids can develop on the earlobes from simple ear piercing, other body piercing as well as tattoos. 
4.  If Possible Avoid Cosmetic Surgery
If you will be having a surgical procedure done and are prone to keloid scarring, let the surgeon know and discuss what can be done to minimize scarring.  There are things that a surgeon will be able to do to try to avoid keloids, including cortisone injections into the wound area and using steri-strips to keep tension off the wound.  Follow post operation directions to the letter. 
5.  Treat Injuries and Burns Immediately 
Keep wounds clean by using gentle cleansers without harsh or irritating ingredients.  Run cool water over burns or use a cool compress.
6.  Keep the Wound Moisturized
Moisturize the wound to prevent the scar from drying up and possibly reopening. To help moisturizers absorb and sooth wounds, heat up a wet washcloth in the microwave to apply moist heat (not too hot) to the injured skin and follow with a gentle moisturizer.
7.  Massage the Scar
Massage can assist with softening and healing of scars.
Procedural Direction:
It is important to note here that the methods for taking care of Keloids outlined here is based on my research and the experience of Distributor Joan Emmanuel’s use of Swissgarde’s products, and she has had a good measure of success in helping people with this skin condition.
 Clean the area very carefully with Tea tree oil soap, so that you can be sure that the area is free from dirt and bacteria.
 Apply Aloe Vera gel on the scar, three times a day so that it can help shrink the keloid and make the healing become faster.
 Allow the gel to remain on top of the scar for hours. You have to make sure that you will reapply whenever necessary.
 Double dose Immune booster, Defender and Super cider for at least 90days.

Body Mass Index or BMI – Swissgarde Natural Treatment For Obesity

Normal weight ranges: Body mass index (BMI)

Body mass index, or BMI, is a way to help you figure out if you are at a healthy weight for your height. BMI is a number based on your weight and height. In general, the higher the number, the more body fat a person has. BMI is often used as a screening tool to decide if your weight might be putting you at risk for health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

BMI is used to broadly define different weight groups in adults 20 years old or older. The same groups apply to both men and women.

Underweight: BMI is less than 18.5

Normal weight: BMI is 18.5 to 24.9

Overweight: BMI is 25 to 29.9

Obese: BMI is 30 or more

This table shows us that a woman who is 5 ft. 4 in. tall is considered overweight (BMI is 25 to 29) if she weighs between 145 and 169 pounds. She is considered obese (BMI is 30 or more) if she weighs 174 pounds or more. A man who is 5 ft. 10

What are the risks associated with obesity?

Call Felix Joshua +2347038574473, +2348074256315 for more information

Obesity is not just a cosmetic consideration; it is harmful to one’s health. In the United States, roughly 112,000 deaths per year are directly related to obesity, and most of these deaths are in patients with a BMI over 30. For patients with a BMI over 40, life expectancy is reduced significantly. Obesity also increases the risk of developing a number of chronic diseases, including the following:

Insulin resistance. Insulin is necessary for the transport of blood glucose (sugar) into the cells of muscle and fat (which is then used for energy). By transporting glucose into cells, insulin keeps the blood glucose levels in the normal range. Insulin resistance (IR) is the condition whereby the effectiveness of insulin in transporting glucose (sugar) into cells is diminished. Fat cells are more insulin resistant than muscle cells; therefore, one important cause of insulin resistance is obesity. The pancreas initially responds to insulin resistance by producing more insulin. As long as the pancreas can produce enough insulin to overcome this resistance, blood glucose levels remain normal. This insulin resistance state (characterized by normal blood glucose levels and high insulin levels) can last for years. Once the pancreas can no longer keep up with producing high levels of insulin, blood glucose levels begin to rise, resulting in type 2 diabetes, thus insulin resistance is a pre-diabetes condition.

Call Felix Joshua +2347038574473, +2348074256315 for more information

Type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes. The risk of type 2 diabetes increases with the degree and duration of obesity. Type 2 diabetes is associated with central obesity; a person with central obesity has excess fat around his/her waist so that the body is shaped like an apple.

High blood pressure (hypertension). Hypertension is common among obese adults. A Norwegian study showed that weight gain tended to increase blood pressure in women more significantly than in men.

High cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia)

Stroke (cerebrovascular accident or CVA)

Heart attack. A prospective study found that the risk of developing coronary artery disease increased three to four times in women who had a BMI greater than 29. A Finnish study showed that for every 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) increase in body weight, the risk of death from coronary artery disease increased by 1%. In patients who have already had a heart attack, obesity is associated with an increased likelihood of a second heart attack.

Congestive heart failure

Cancer. Obesity has been linked to cancer of the colon in men and women, cancer of the rectum and prostate in men, and cancer of the gallbladder and uterus in women. Obesity may also be associated with breast cancer, particularly in postmenopausal women. Fat tissue is important in the production of estrogen, and prolonged exposure to high levels of estrogen increases the risk of breast cancer.

Gallstones

Gout and gouty arthritis

Osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis) of the knees, hips, and the lower back

Sleep apnea

What Causes Obesity?

The balance between calorie intake and energy expenditure determines a person’s weight. If a person eats more calories than he or she burns (metabolizes), the person gains weight (the body will store the excess energy as fat). If a person eats fewer calories than he or she metabolizes, he or she will lose weight. Therefore the most common causes of obesity are overeating and physical inactivity. Ultimately, body weight is the result of genetics, metabolism, environment, behavior, and culture.

Call Felix Joshua +2347038574473, +2348074256315 for more information

Genetics. A person is more likely to develop obesity if one or both parents are obese. Genetics also affect hormones involved in fat regulation. For example, one genetic cause of obesity is leptin deficiency. Leptin is a hormone produced in fat cells and also in the placenta. Leptin controls weight by signaling the brain to eat less when body fat stores are too high. If, for some reason, the body cannot produce enough leptin or leptin cannot signal the brain to eat less, this control is lost, and obesity occurs. The role of leptin replacement as a treatment for obesity is currently being explored.

Overeating. Overeating leads to weight gain, especially if the diet is high in fat. Foods high in fat or sugar (for example, fast food, fried food, and sweets) have a high energy density (foods that have a lot of calories in a small amount of food). Epidemiologic studies have shown that diets high in fat contribute to weight gain.

A diet high in simple carbohydrates. The role of carbohydrates in weight gain is not clear. Carbohydrates increase blood glucose levels, which in turn stimulate insulin release by the pancreas, and insulin promotes the growth of fat tissue and can cause weight gain. Some scientists believe that simple carbohydrates (sugars, fructose, desserts, soft drinks, beer, wine, etc.) contribute to weight gain because they are more rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream than complex carbohydrates (pasta, brown rice, grains, vegetables, raw fruits, etc.) and thus cause a more pronounced insulin release after meals than complex carbohydrates. This higher insulin release, some scientists believe, contributes to weight gain.

The frequency of eating. The relationship between the frequency of eating (how often you eat) and weight is somewhat controversial. There are many reports of overweight people eating less often than people with normal weight. Scientists have observed that people who eat small meals four or five times daily have lower cholesterol levels and lower and/or more stable blood sugar levels than people who eat less frequently (two or three large meals daily). One possible explanation is that small frequent meals produce stable insulin levels, whereas large meals cause large spikes of insulin after meals.

Call Felix Joshua +2347038574473, +2348074256315 for more information

Physical inactivity. Sedentary people burn fewer calories than people who are active. The National Health and NutritionExamination Survey (NHANES) showed that physical inactivity was strongly correlated with weight gain in both sexes.

Medications. Medications associated with weight gain include certain antidepressants (medications used in treating depression), anticonvulsants (medications used in controlling seizures such as carbamazepine [Tegretol, Tegretol XR , Equetro, Carbatrol] and valproate [Depacon, Depakene]), some diabetes medications (medications used in lowering blood sugar such as insulin, sulfonylureas, and thiazolidinediones), certain hormones such as oral contraceptives, and most corticosteroids such as prednisone. Weight gain may also be seen with some high blood pressure medications and antihistamines. The reason for the weight gain with the medications differs for each medication. If this is a concern for you, you should discuss your medications with your physician rather than discontinuing the medication, as this could have serious effects.

Call Felix Joshua +2347038574473, +2348074256315 for more information

Psychological factors. For some people, emotions influence eating habits. Many people eat excessively in response to emotions such as boredom, sadness, stress, or anger. While most overweight people have no more psychological disturbances than

normal weight people, about 30% of the people who seek treatment for serious weight problems have difficulties with binge eating.

Diseases such as hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, polycystic ovary syndrome, and Cushing’s syndrome are also contributors to obesity.

Social issues: A link between social issues and obesity has been established. Lack of money to purchase healthy foods or lack of safe places to walk or exercise can increase the risk of obesity

Does it matter where body fat is located? (Is it worse to be an “apple” or a “pear”?)

The concern is directed not only at how much fat a person has but also where that fat is located on the body. The pattern of body fat distribution tends to differ in men and women.

In general, women collect fat in their hips and buttocks, giving their figures a “pear” shape. Men, on the other hand, usually collect fat around the belly, giving them more of an “apple” shape. (This is not a hard and fast rule; some men are pear-shaped and some women become apple-shaped, particularly after menopause.)

Call Felix Joshua +2347038574473, +2348074256315 for more information

Apple-shaped people whose fat is concentrated mostly in the abdomen are more likely to develop many of the health problems associated with obesity. They are at increased health risk because of their fat distribution. While obesity of any kind is a health risk, it is better to be a pear than an apple.

In order to sort the types of fruit, doctors have developed a simple way to determine whether someone is an apple or a pear. The measurement is called the waist-to-hip ratio. To find out a person’s waist-to-hip ratio

measure the waist at its narrowest point, and then measure the hips at the widest point;

divide the waist measurement by the hip measurement. For example, a woman with a 35-inch waist and 46-inch hips would have a waist-to-hip ratio of 0.76 (35 divided by 46 = 0.76).

Women with waist-to-hip ratios of more than 0.8 and men with waist-to-hip ratios of more than 1.0 are “apples.”

Another rough way of estimating the amount of a person’s abdominal fat is by measuring the waist circumference. Men with a waist circumference of 40 inches or greater and women with a waist circumference of 35 inches or greater are considered to have increased health risks related to obesity.

What is the role of physical activity and exercise in obesity?

The National Health and Examination Survey (NHANES I) showed that people who engage in limited recreational activity were more likely to gain weight than more active people. Other studies have shown that people who engage in regular strenuous activity gain less weight than sedentary people.

Physical activity and exercise help burn calories. The amount of calories burned depends on the type, duration, and intensity of the activity. It also depends on the weight of the person. A 200-pound person will burn more calories running 1 mile than a 120-pound person because the work of carrying those extra 80 pounds must be factored in. But exercise as a treatment for obesity is most effective when combined with a diet and weight-loss program. Exercise alone without dietary changes will have a limited effect on weight because one has to exercise a lot to simply lose 1 pound. However regular exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle to maintain a healthy weight for the long term. Another advantage of regular exercise as part of a weight-loss program is a greater loss of body fat versus lean muscle compared to those who diet alone.

Other benefits of exercise include

improved blood sugar control and increased insulin sensitivity (decreased insulin resistance),

reduced triglyceride levels and increased “good” HDL cholesterol levels,

lowered blood pressure,

a reduction in abdominal fat,

reduced risk of heart disease,

the release of endorphins that make people feel good.

Remember, these health benefits can occur independently (with or without) achieving weight loss. Before starting an exercise program, talk to a doctor about the type and intensity of the exercise program.

General exercise recommendations

Perform 20-30 minutes of moderate exercise five to seven days a week, preferably daily. Types of exercise include stationary bicycling, walking or jogging on a treadmill, stair climbing machines, jogging, and swimming.

Exercise can be broken up into smaller 10-minute sessions.

Start slowly and progress gradually to avoid injury, excessive soreness, or fatigue. Over time, build up to 30-60 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise every day.

People are never too old to start exercising. Even frail, elderly individuals (70-90 years of age) can improve their strength and balance.

Exercise precautions

The following people should consult a doctor before vigorous exercise:

Men over age 40 or women over age 50

Individuals with heart or lung disease, asthma, arthritis, or osteoporosis

Individuals who experience chest pressure or pain with exertion, or who develop fatigue or shortness of breath easily

Individuals with conditions or lifestyle factors that increase their risk of developing coronary heart diseases, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cigarette smoking, high blood cholesterol, or having family members with early onset heart attacks and coronary heart disease

A patient who is obese

How can patients choose a safe and successful weight-loss program?

Scientists have made tremendous strides in understanding obesity and improving the medication treatment of this important disease. In time, better, safer, and more effective obesity medications will be available. But currently, there is still no “magic cure” for obesity. The best and safest way to lose fat and keep it off is through a commitment to a lifelong process of proper diet and regular exercise. Medications should be considered helpful adjuncts to diet and exercise for patients whose health risk from obesity clearly outweigh the potential side effects of the medications. Medications should be prescribed by doctors familiar with the patients’ conditions and with the use of the medications. Medication(s) and other “herbal” preparations with unproven effectiveness and safety should be avoided.

Almost any of the commercial weight-loss programs can work but only if they motivate you sufficiently to decrease the number of calories you eat or increase the number of calories you burn each day (or both). What elements of a weight-loss program should a consumer look for in judging its potential for safe and successful weight loss? A responsible and safe weight-loss program should be able to document for you the five following features:

The diet should be safe. It should include all of the recommended daily allowances (RDA) for vitamins, minerals, and protein. The weight-loss diet should be low in calories (energy) only, not in essential foodstuffs.

The weight-loss program should be directed toward a slow, steady weight loss unless your doctor feels your health condition would benefit from more rapid weight loss. Expect to lose only about a pound a week after the first week or two. With many calorie-restricted diets, there is an initial rapid weight loss during the first one to two weeks, but this loss is largely fluid.

If you plan to lose more than 15 to 20 pounds, have any health problems, or take medication on a regular basis, you should be evaluated by your doctor before beginning your weight-loss program. A doctor can assess your general health and any medical conditions that might be affected by dieting and weight loss. Also, a physician should be able to advise you on the need for weight loss, the appropriateness of the weight-loss program, and a sensible goal of weight loss for you. If you plan to use a very low-calorie diet (a special liquid formula diet that replaces all food intake for one to four months), you should do so under the close supervision of a health-care professional.

Your program should include plans for weight maintenance after the weight-loss phase is over. It is of little benefit to losing a large amount of weight only to regain it. Weight maintenance is the most difficult part of controlling weight and is not consistently implemented in weight-loss programs. The program you select should include help in permanently changing your dietary habits and level of physical activity, and to alter a lifestyle that may have contributed to weight gain in the past. Your program should provide behavior modification help, including education in healthy eating habits and long-term plans to deal with weight problems. One of the most important factors in maintaining weight loss appears to be increasing daily physical activity. Try to be more active throughout the day and incorporate some simple calorie burners into your everyday routine. Even the most basic activities (such as taking an after-dinner walk, using the stairs at the mall or office instead of taking an escalator or elevator, park your car farther away so you have a longer walk) can get you prepared for more regular exercise like walking or jogging. You may choose to incorporate an individually tailored exercise program into your schedule.

A commercial weight-loss program should provide a detailed statement of fees and costs of additional items such as dietary supplements.

Obesity is a chronic condition. Too often it is viewed as a temporary problem that can be treated for a few

months with a strenuous diet. However, as most overweight people know, weight control must be considered a lifelong effort. To be safe and effective, any weight-loss program must address the long-term approach or else the program is largely a waste of time, money, and energy.

Conclusion

Maintaining your ideal body weight is a balancing act between food consumption and calories needed by the body for energy. You are what you eat. The kinds and amounts of food you eat affect your ability to maintain your ideal weight and to lose weight.

Medical science has established that eating proper foods can influence health for all age groups. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s current dietary guidelines state the following:

Eat a variety of foods.

Balance the food you eat with physical activity — maintain or improve your weight.

Choose a diet with plenty of grain products, vegetables, and fruits.

Choose a diet low in fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol.

Choose a diet moderate in sugars.

Choose a diet moderate in salt and sodium.

If you drink alcoholic beverages, do so in moderation.

The Basics of Snoring on the other hand;

Snoring is a common condition that can affect anyone, although it occurs more frequently in men and people who are overweight. Snoring has a tendency to worsen with age.

Occasional snoring is usually not very serious and is mostly a nuisance for your bed partner. However, if you are a habitual snorer, you not only disrupt the sleep patterns of those close to you, but you also impair your own sleep quality. Medical assistance is often needed for habitual snorers (and their loved ones) to get a good night’s sleep.

What Causes Snoring?

Snoring occurs when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is physically obstructed. Airflow can be obstructed by a combination of factors, including:
* Obstructed nasal airways: Some people snore only during allergy seasons or when they have a sinus infection. Deformities of the nose such as a deviated septum (a structural change in the wall that separates one nostril from the other) or nasal polyps can also cause obstruction.

* Poor muscle tone in the throat and tongue: Throat and tongue muscles can be too relaxed, which allows them to collapse and fall back into the airway. This can result from a deep sleep, alcohol consumption, or use of some sleeping pills. Normal aging causes further relaxation of these muscles.

* Bulky throat tissue: Being overweight can cause bulky throat tissue. Also, children with large tonsils and adenoids often snore.

* Long soft palate and/or uvula: A long soft palate or a long uvula (the dangling tissue in the back of the mouth) can narrow the opening from the nose to the throat. When these structures vibrate and bump against one another the airway becomes obstructed, causing snoring.

Health Risks associated With Snoring.

Habitual snorers can be at risk for serious health problems, including obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea creates several problems, including:

 Interruptions of breathing (lasting from a few seconds to minutes) during sleep caused by partial or total obstruction or blockage of the airway.

Frequent waking from sleep, even though you may not realize it.

Light sleeping. Waking up so many times a night interferes with the normal pattern of sleep causing more time to be spent in light sleep than in more restorative, deeper sleep.

The strain on the heart. Prolonged suffering from obstructive sleep apnea often results in higher blood pressure and may cause enlargement of the heart, with higher risks of heart attack and stroke.

Poor night’s sleep. This leads to drowsiness during the day and can interfere with your quality of life and increase the risk of car accidents.

Swissgrade recommended supplements for obesity and snoring are Fat burner, Fat Absorber, Aloe Power, Buchu, Super cider and Dia- Vite.

Vitamin C
also known as L-ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. Humans, unlike most animals, are unable to synthesize vitamin C endogenously, so it is an essential dietary component

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble vitamin. We can’t store it in the body, which means we need it from our diet every day.

Health Benefits of Vitamin C
– Vitamin C helps protect cells and keep them healthy,” says Marie Murphy, a nutrition scientist at the British Nutrition Foundation. “

– It is also involved in the production of collagen, which maintains healthy connective tissues, important for the support and structure of tissues and organs including the skin, bones, and blood vessels.”

– Vitamin C helps with wound healing, and consuming vitamin C increases the amount of iron we can absorb from plant sources, such as kale, broccoli, and sprouts.

– Vitamin C is one of many antioxidants that may protect against damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals, as well as toxic chemicals and pollutants like cigarette smoke. Research suggests that free radicals can build up and contribute to the development of health conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and arthritis.

VITAMIN E

— Vitamin E is a vitamin that dissolves in fat. It is found in many foods including vegetable oils, cereals, meat, poultry, eggs, fruits, vegetables, and wheat germ oil. It is also available as a supplement.

Gout – All You Need To Know About Gout : Swissgarde Nutritional And Herbal Remedy For Gout

Gout is a common and complex form of arthritis that can affect anyone.

It’s characterized by sudden, severe attacks of pain, swelling, redness, and tenderness in the joints, at the base of the big toe.

An attack of gout can occur suddenly, often waking you up in the middle of the night with the sensation that your big toe is on fire.

The affected joint is hot, swollen and so tender that even the weight of the sheet on it may seem intolerable.

Gout symptoms may come and go, but there are ways to manage symptoms and prevent flares.

Symptoms of Gout

The signs and symptoms of gout always occur suddenly, and often at night.

They include:

1. Intense joint pain: Gout usually affects the large joint of the big toe, but it can occur in any joint.

2. Other commonly affected joints include the ankles, knees, elbows, wrists, and fingers.

3. The pain is likely to be most severe within the first four to 12 hours after it begins.

4.Lingering discomfort. After the most severe pain subsides, some joint discomfort may last from a few days to a few weeks.

5. Later attacks are likely to last longer and affect more joints.

6. Inflammation and redness. The affected joint or joints become swollen, tender, warm and red.

7. Limited range of motion. As gout progresses, the person may not be able to move the joints normally.

8. Gout that goes untreated can lead to worsening pain and if you have a fever and a joint is hot and inflamed, it can be a sign of infection.

Causes of Gout

1. Gout occurs when urate crystals accumulate in your joint, causing the inflammation and intense pain of a gout attack.

2. Urate crystals can form when you have high levels of uric acid in your blood.

3. The body produces uric acid when it breaks down purines — substances that are found naturally in your body.

4. Purines are also found in certain foods, such as steak, organ meats, and seafood. Other foods also promote higher levels of uric acid, such as alcoholic beverages, especially beer, and drinks sweetened with fruit sugar (fructose).

5. Normally, uric acid dissolves in your blood and passes through your kidneys into your urine. But sometimes either your body produces too much uric acid or your kidneys excrete too little uric acid. When this happens, uric acid can build up, forming sharp, needle-like urate crystals in a joint or surrounding tissue that cause pain, inflammation, and swelling.

Risk factors

One is most likely to develop gout if the body has high levels of uric acid, tingling of fingers, dark knuckles, red and painful joints, and slow movement

 Factors that increase the uric acid level in your body include:

1. Diet. Eating a diet rich in meat and seafood and drinking beverages sweetened with fruit sugar (fructose) increase levels of uric acid, which increase your risk of gout.

2. Alcohol consumption, especially of beer, also increases the risk of gout.

3.Obesity. If you’re overweight, your body produces more uric acid and your kidneys have a more difficult time eliminating uric acid.

Medical conditions: Certain diseases and conditions increase your risk of gout.

These include untreated high blood pressure and chronic conditions such as
diabetes,
metabolic syndrome,
heart
kidney
Age and sex

Gout occurs more often in men, primarily because women tend to have lower uric acid levels. After menopause, however, women’s uric acid levels approach those of men. Men are also more likely to develop gout earlier — usually between the ages of 30 and 50

People with gout can develop more-severe conditions, such as Recurrent gout.

Some people may never experience gout signs and symptoms again.

Others may experience gout several times each year.

Medications may help prevent gout attacks in people with recurrent gout.

If left untreated, gout can cause erosion and destruction of a joint.

Advanced gout or untreated gout may cause deposits of urate crystals to form under the skin in nodules called tophi (TOE-fie).

Tophi can develop in several areas such as your fingers, hands, feet, elbows or Achilles tendons along the backs of your ankles.

Tophi usually isn’t painful, but they can become swollen and tender during gout attacks, they become a concern.

Kidney stones and urate crystals may collect in the urinary tract of people with gout, causing kidney stones.

Medications can help reduce the risk of kidney stones and four infections if the right diet and recovery plan is followed.

Prevention

During symptom-free periods, these dietary guidelines may help protect against future gout attacks:

Drink plenty of fluids. Stay well-hydrated, including plenty of water. Limit how many sweetened beverages you drink, especially those sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup. Limit or avoid alcohol. Talk with your doctor about whether any amount or type of alcohol is safe for you. Recent evidence suggests that beer may be particularly likely to increase the risk of gout symptoms, especially in men.

Get your protein from low-fat dairy products. Low-fat dairy products may actually have a protective effect against gout, so these are your best-bet protein sources. Limit your intake of meat, fish, and poultry. A small amount may be tolerable, but pay close attention to what types — and how much — seem to cause problems for you. Maintain a desirable body weight. Choose portions that allow you to maintain a healthy weight.

Losing weight may decrease uric acid levels in your body. But avoid fasting or rapid weight loss, since doing so may temporarily raise uric acid levels.

Where does uric acid come from?

Firstly, we have to understand where uric acid comes from.
 Animal cells
 (including human cells)
have structures called DNA, which resides with the nucleus of the cell?

This DNA is broken down into its constituents, called amino acids…

when a cell dies through the action or activity of a low immune system.

 Some of these amino acids are called purines, which in turn are converted into other chemicals.

Our body recycles some of these chemicals with those leftover proceeding to become uric acid… which is in some ways a waste product that is then excreted by our kidneys into the urine.

It is a very complicated process but with this concept in mind, you may understand why certain diseases are associated with high levels of uric acid.

For example, if a person has a high burden of dying cells, such as occurs in certain cancers or in those undergoing chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer, then more DNA is broken down to purines, resulting in excess uric acid production.

Conversely, when the uric acid cannot be efficiently excreted, such as is the case with many kidney diseases or due to many medications that interfere with this process of excretion.

This is particularly a concern with diuretics, which remove water from our body at the expense of other products such as uric acid.

Rarely, a person is born with a defective step in uric acid metabolism, whereby gout develops at a young age, sometimes associated with a very strong family history of early and aggressive gout.

When the uric acid level is high in the circulation it is termed Hyperuricaemia.

This situation is also strongly associated with obesity. It is believed that fatty tissue enhances the production of uric acid.

Hyperuricaemia is part of the ‘metabolic syndrome’, which is associated with an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes.

We also obtain purine amino acids from our diet. It is estimated that 10-15% of our purine load is dietary in origin. Foods that are high in purine include offal, seafood (in particular crustaceans), red meat, and alcohol.

Gout affects millions of people every year… There remains a constant misconception that many suffer from symptoms of gout due to poor health habits, or that it is self-inflicted, and in a vast amount of patients, that simply isn’t the case. Gout can often be as debilitating as rheumatoid arthritis for thousands of patients, and when any health condition is starting to decrease your quality of daily life; it must be taken seriously.

What can you do, if anything, other than medications to conquer your gout symptoms?

Experts are weighing in that most have great success in making small changes, such as altering your diet to prevent future attacks.

There are certain foods that have a way of creating gout attacks by raising your uric acid levels, or by causing the kidneys to strain even more than they normally have to.

These are obviously habits you would need to change in order to keep your day to day symptoms at bay.

Think back a hundred years or longer, and consider how many humans lived without prescription medications; we are capable of healing many ailments through proper nutrition.

Take a look at the following foods that trigger gout attacks, and make any dietary changes necessary to finally get that control back on your gout symptoms:

1. Fried food

While everyone loves a fried anything, they are dreadful for gout patients.

In fact, fried goodies can onset an episode all on their own, so do be careful with how much you consume. Fried foods also lead to obesity which is another huge setback for gout.

Gout doesn’t have to be a rollercoaster, if you can curb a few habits such as better eating, you may be able to decrease your attacks. Always speak with your medical provider to ensure that you’re eating the right foods for your gout symptoms and to prevent any future outbreaks.

2. Beer: it can be a relaxing past time to have a cold brew, there are some that consume the beverage may be a bit too often.

The reason why beer can be dangerous for anyone with gout is due to it having a tendency to cause your uric acid levels to rise quickly, making for trouble for gout sufferers. It is hard to get out of your system and should be avoided by those who have any kidney or gout issues as much possible.

If we treat most cases of arthritis as gout and avoid diets that trigger the rise in uric acid we will have more positive results from clients with arthritis pain

I have handled more than two cases of arthritis and rheumatism which I gave Swiss Garde products but the client continued complaining of the pain while using the products until I decided to read up about his symptoms and found out most of his symptoms are same as for Gout… so I asked him to change his meal plan and I changed his medication too…

I initially gave Omega plus, A & R complex, Aloe Power, Cal-C-Mag for arthritis and rheumatism…. but when the symptoms persisted and I read about his symptoms and changed his diet plan… I replaced omega plus with Marina Spa because for someone with the kind of joint pains he was having Omega plus nurtures and will not help but add to the pain…
