For natural remedies, you can consult an Ayurvedic doctor in Melbourne.
Some common fruits and edible ingredients have been found to be effective in the treatment of gout. A few of these are apples which have malic acid to neutralize uric acid. Another one is lime, which is very good for joints because of the presence of vitamin C in it. The best thing about using such gout natural remedies is that there are no side-effects caused by them.
Another health problem caused by modern lifestyle that contributes to gout is being over-weight. Since many of us work in offices, sitting for long hours on a chair, it is difficult to get much physical activity. Obesity brings with it, many other problems such as low self-esteem, depression, risk of diabetes and heart diseases.
