Hi, I am Brad.
10 years ago now, I was diagnosed with a condition called gout. Up until then, I cannot recall ever hearing of the word gout – I mean have you ever heard of a 4 letter word medical condition affecting millions of people? To my surprise, it does exist and it affects an increasing number of us!
Did you know that gout used to be associated with the 18th Century port drinking middle class? I am not joking! When you have a spare second, have a look at James Gillray’s famous gout caricatures from the 18th Century.
I decided to start this website to share what I have learnt and my experiences of living with, treating and eventually finding my cure for gout. It took me some time, but eventually I was able to find the right path.
Ever since my diagnosis, I decided that I did not want to live off medication for the rest of my life. Many people who are diagnosed with medical conditions are, unfortunately, not able to live without medication. But gout is different! Through simple changes to your lifestyle alongside some very basic exercises, you can not only cure gout, but you can enjoy a more energetic and happier life!
I hope you are able to enjoy this website and my experience with gout. I am always keen to learn new things and share with other people. If you have any comments or feedback, I would welcome you to get in contact with me.
