DEAR DR. GOTT: You had an article about cherries being good for gout, and I can believe that. But there is such a simple cure that I like better. I read up
about gout and found out it is caused by uric-acid crystals, and the simple cure is to take pantothenic acid, which dissolves the crystals, and they go out in
our urine - gout gone. I used to be able to buy these B vitamins from pharmacy shelves, but they are potent little devils, so now I can get them only from a
vitamin catalog or store. I weigh only 100 pounds, so I took half a pill per day for two or three days, and the gout was gone. But I wouldn't recommend popping
them daily like a multivitamin. I used your cure for arthritis (Certo and grape juice), and it worked like a charm, but it takes a couple of weeks (at one per
day). Then my arthritis was gone and never came back again. God bless you.
DEAR READER: None of my research has indicated that pantothenic acid is a consistent cure for gout, but your observation is intriguing. As always, I welcome
input from my readers on alternative therapies.
With respect to your stunning success with Certo and grape juice, I question the diagnosis. Osteoarthritis tends to be permanent. It is a consequence of the
aging process, so I wonder whether your single episode was, in fact, arthritis. Perhaps some other affliction, such as tendon or muscle inflammation, was to blame.
To give you related information, I am sending you a copy of my health report, "About Gout." Other readers who would like a copy should send a long,
self-addressed, stamped envelope and $2 to Newsletter, PO Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092. Be sure to mention the title.
