Among the folk remedies against gout is very very popular mineral water. It is a natural water which contains various minerals and gases (hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, etc.). Mineral water has on the body therapeutic effect. It is formed from atmospheric precipitation in the depths of the earth. Atmospheric moisture passes through different rocks, dissolves a chemical substance and is saturated with different gases.
This treatment of gout experts recommend drinking alkaline water mineralized sulphate-hydrocarbonate or hydrocarbonate just composition. Adopted inward hypotonic water is rapidly absorbed and increases the volume of extracellular fluid. It mobilizes metabolic processes and is easily excreted from the body. Thus there is a kind of cleaning of the urinary tract. Alkalization of urine helps uric acid to dissolve and thereby prevent the progression of gout.
It is recommended to drink water on an empty stomach half an hour before meals, 3 times a day 1.5 cups for 1 admission. Before drinking water temperature should be around 36-40 degrees. Be sure to control the dose and frequency of admission, and the temperature of the water.
