Dr. Samuel Heiks: Natural approach to Gout

Dr. Heiks is a board certified Family Medicine doctor and lives in Bluffton, Ohio.

Dear Dr. Heiks: My husband has gout but doesn’t want to take anything for it.  Is there anything natural he can try?
Reader from Bluffton, Ohio

Dear Reader:   When I think of gout, needles come to mind.  An acute gout attack is the equivalent of needles poking around in the joint, oftentimes the large toe.  Understandably, this will result in a lot of pain and swelling.

What year did you graduate from BHS?  Can you share a few memories or thoughts that spring to mind when you think of growing up in Bluffton?

I loved my time growing up in Bluffton. Larry and Kevin Smith, Jason Buroker and Doug Schweingruber were my best friends growing up. I’ve got great memories of riding bikes, building forts, and playing in the Riley Creek with them.
