Its not often in my nearly 60 years that I have found something that really works. This can only be anecdotal, mind you, if enough people post anecdotal stories to blogs about a subject the evidence becomes more and more empirical.
I have painful joints in my feet, I don't know whether this is mild gout or wear and tear. I read that cherries and cherry juice cures gout so I gave it a try. It didn't work overnight but today I noticed about an 80% relief. I can say with reasonable certainty that cherries and cherry juice cure joint pain that might be gout.
Sorry that I can't be more definative.
