Here’s good news for gout patients: The pain you experience can be treated. Conventional physicians would usually recommend drugs such as corticosteroids, colchicine, allopurinol and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for gout pain relief.1 Unfortunately, these have harmful side effects.

NSAIDs in particular are one of the worst offenders when it comes to your health. NSAID intake may increase your risk for both interstitial nephritis and/or kidney failure,2,3 gastrointestinal upsets such as vomiting and diarrhea, dizziness, headaches, drowsiness, ulcers4 and shortness of breath.5 You are also in jeopardy for fatal stomach and intestinal reactions, heart attack and stroke.

How to Get Rid of Gout Pain Naturally

If you want effective treatments to help get rid of gout pain minus the health risks, look no further than these potent anti-inflammatories and home remedies for the disease:

Cayenne cream: Also called capsaicin cream, cayenne cream may assist in reducing quantities of substance P, which resides in your nerve cells and sends pain signals to your brain.

Capsaicin is a compound in chili peppers that’s responsible for their heat. Different studies have shown that eating spicy food can be beneficial for you, and capsaicin plays a big role in this effect.

Capsaicin may be helpful because of its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties.

It’s also useful for people who want to lose weight because of its ability to lower calorie intake and blood fat levels, reduce fat tissue,6 and combat fat buildup.7

Boswellia: An herb also known as boswellin or “Indian frankincense,” boswellic acid in this herb may help lessen pain brought about by gout and/or other similar conditions.8,9

Continuous boswellia use may assist in reducing joint stiffness,10 inhibiting cartilage loss,11 promoting better mobility12 and improving overall joint health.13

Krill oil: An animal-based fat that comes from shrimp-like animals living in Antarctic waters, krill oil contains EPA and DHA omega-3 fats that have anti-inflammatory properties.

A 2010 study published in the journal BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders revealed that krill oil decreased arthritis symptoms.14

Bromelain: Derived from pineapple stems, bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme with anti-inflammatory properties.15 16 Eat fresh pineapple or take a bromelain supplement if you want to reap its benefits.

Cetyl myristoleate oil (CMO): Another anti-inflammatory that may be helpful for decreasing pain in the joints and serving as a joint lubricant is CMO, often found in dairy butter and fish.

Evening primrose, black currant and borage  oil: These essential oils all contain a fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) that can provide pain relief for arthritis.

Ginger: This root crop not only boosts your immune system, but has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties too. Eat it fresh or steep as a tea.

Astaxanthin: A type of naturally occurring substance called a carotenoid, astaxanthin has anti-inflammatory effects that may help relieve joint pain.

Astaxanthin may support recovery from intense workouts by lowering lactic acid, which is an undesirable byproduct of exercise in your body.

Apart from these natural remedies, you can address pain caused by inflammation from gout or other types of arthritis by trying K-Laser Class 4 therapy. This therapy may stimulate enhanced microcirculation and cause red blood cells to flow in the affected joints, resulting in less pain and inflammation, and  promoting healing of hard and soft tissues in your muscles, ligaments, or even bones.
