Are there any home remedies for gout pain?

Cherries
Cherries have antioxidant properties, which are an excellent home remedy for gout pain. Cherries also help reduce inflammation and gout flare-ups because they contain anthocyanin. Try to eat 15 to 20 cherries a day.

Ginger root
Ginger root has anti-inflammatory properties and can be used in many different ways as a remedy for gout pain. One way to take ginger root is to just incorporate it into your daily meals when cooking. Another way is to add half a teaspoon of ginger root to boiling water and drink the mixture once it has cooled. A third option is to create a paste by combining the ginger root with water and applying it to the affected area and leaving it on for about 30 minutes. These are some surprising health benefits and risks of ginger.

Hydrate
If you’re suffering from gout pain and swelling it is important to stay hydrated and drink lots of water. This will help to flush the uric acid out of your body, keeping the gout under control.
