For the lead image on my Home Remedies For Gout page, I couldn’t resist this photo from flickr.

Please note that, whilst there is no evidence to suggest that water can cure gout, lack of water can certainly make it worse. Whether you take gout medications, or choose to rely on natural gout cures, sufficient water is vital. Uric acid cannot be excreted through your kidneys if you are dehydrated. Please ensure you drink sufficient water, varied with other fluids such as skim milk. Sufficient means enough to produce 2 to 2.5 liters of urine per day.
