Remedy Description

Source: Tao of Health, Sex, and Longevity, Daniel Reid, Fireside, New

York, p 102.


Closely related to rheumatism, gout is the inflammation of bones and

ligaments in joints, owing to formation of acid crystals; this is caused

mainly by diets that contain too much fatty meat, salt and alcohol, and

insufficient quantities of raw, enzyme-active foods.

Carrot, beet, cucumber juice: the potent alkalizing properties of this

blend help rebalance pH in blood and tissues and dissolve acid crystals in

joints; 10 oz/3 oz/3 oz, 1-2 pints daily.

Parsley juice: raw parsley facilitates oxygen metabolism and stimulates

adrenal secretions; both actions relieve the discomfort of gout and help

correct the excess acidity of blood and tissues which causes it; mix 4 oz

parsley juice with 12 oz carrot juice, 1 pint daily.

Celery juice: rich in organic sodium, iron, calcium and magnesium,

it corrects blood acidosis, dissolves deposits of inorganic calcium

in joints, and provides the organic calcium required for repair of

damaged ligaments and bones; mix half/half with carrot juice, 1-2

pints daily.

Other beneficial foods: cabbage; fresh citrus juices (no sugar); raw black

cherries (exclusively for 24 hours); raw black grapes (exclusively for 1-3

days); alfalfa tea or sprouts.

Foods to avoid: fatty meats, especially pork; organ meats, especially

liver; cooked spinach; cooked tomatoes; dry beans; alcohol; salt.
