JR asks, Can accupuncture help with gout? 

Gout, “the rich man disease”, is the buildup of uric acid in the body most often in the joints and usually the big toe although it often flares up in other places as well.

 Acupuncture often provides short term immediate relief by reducing the swelling associated with gout.

 Acupuncture also helps long term by helping regulate the flow of uric acid.

Gout has a strong association with the consumption of alcohol, sugar, meat, and seafood. Coffee consumption, vitamin C, dairy products and physical fitness appear to decrease the risk.
