Goodbye to Gout: A New Gout Diet by Rose Scott

How different would your life be if you no longer suffered from gout? Well you can say goodbye to gout for good with this new gout diet. Goodbye To Gout is a comprehensive, easy to read book that reveals the truth about what really causes gout. Does something we eat cause gout? Well, when it comes to gout you really are what you eat and surprisingly the culprits are not the purine rich foods that have for years been given a bad press. Goodbye To Gout explains not only which foods cause gout but also why and how they cause it. Move to a gout friendly way of eating and gout goes away and it goes away for good. With this new easy-to-follow diet there are no strict rules, so the occasional mishap will not spell doom. It is what you do most of the time, not what you do some of the time that matters and, unlike some rigidly restricted gout diets, this diet does not take the fun out of eating.

About the Author

In the absence of a medical or scientific background, what are my credentials for writing a book about gout? I am a gout wife who five years ago decided that it was time to put an end to the pain and misery my husband had endured for ten years. He had reached the end of the road and gout was destroying our lives. Having been told by an orthopaedic surgeon that my husband was eating too many purines I set myself the task of finding out what purines were and, if they really did cause gout, whether eliminating them from our diet would cure it.

With no medical background I had a lot to learn but I also had a completely open mind, so like a modern day Miss Marple I set about looking for real scientific evidence, not the myths and folklore that have shrouded gout for years. What I discovered shocked me. Misinformation - yes, and lots of it, outright lies - possibly, numerous quick fix cures that would never work and a focus on purine rich food that was not supported by scientific evidence.

So does something we eat really cause this painful and debilitating disease? Well you won't be surprised to learn that it does, but the purine rich foods that have hitherto received such a bad press are actually innocent by-standers, the real culprits are some of the things that we eat and drink every day of our lives. Move to a gout friendly way of eating and gout goes away, and it goes away for good. It's as simple as that. We changed our diet and now my husband lives an active gout free life. For him, facing a lifetime of pain and medication is a thing of the past.

Why did I write Goodbye To Gout? Eighteen months ago the same orthopaedic surgeon who told my husband he was eating too many purines looked in amazement at his gout free feet. "You need to let other people know about this. Why don't you write a book?"

Goodbye To Gout is our story.
