@ddljohn-- Are you taking a medication for gout, to reduce uric acid levels in your body? You need to see your doctor about this if you weren't given prescription medications to treat the condition.
There are natural remedies for gout but they're not proven. Apple cider vinegar and baking soda are two that I know of. They work better for some than others, but you might want to give them a try. It will be too much to try both, so try them separately.
You can take half a tablespoon of baking soda mixed in water, four times a day or a tablespoon of vinegar in water once a day. You can add honey to the vinegar and water mixture. Both baking soda and vinegar reduce acidity in the body and can reduce uric acid levels and provide gout pain relief.
