I feel for ya man...I am on Alpurinol daily to avoid gout. Painful stuff! I've been gout free for over a year now!OMFG!!!! Is this stuff nasty!!!! I guess if it works though it'll be woth it. You're supposed to take 1 table spoon celery seed, cook it in 2 cups water, strain, and drink a half cup 4 times a day. There are some other remedies I'll be trying, but I guess since I started this one, I gotta give it a chance. YUK!!!!
