Apple cider vinegar is the best vinegar to use when treating gout, according to Natural News. The liquid helps to coat the stomach and protect it from an over abundance of acid.
Drinking 1 to 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water can relieve or lessen the symptoms of gout. It can also reduce muscle spasms and arthritis. Baking soda is also shown to decrease the symptoms. A half tablespoon in 8 ounces of water can stop the pain almost immediately. If that does not work, add in the juice of a lemon and drink after it has stopped fizzing. A doctor should be seen before trying any home remedy for gout.
