It’s Bing Cherry season beginning this month. For decades people prone to gout have sworn by tart cherries and tart cherry juice to stave off an attack. While Montmorency and Balaton Cherries are technically the tartest, Bing Cherries have a lot to recommend in helping not only reduce gout attacks, but lower inflammation overall, according to the new book Drop Acid , by Dr. David Perlmutter.
Uric Acid, that is. It turns out that Uric Acid is key to losing weight, controlling blood sugar and supporting health in the heart, insulin resistance and fatty liver disease ( and many others since it is all inflammation, right?). And it is likely that your usual labs include testing for high Uric Acid. It rarely gets highlighted by physicians and as with any test, your number may fall within range and still not be ideal.
In a balance session, we are often guided to the Organs to support clearing inflammation. Once we locate a congested or blocked area, we do an action, known as unruffling, repeating until the sense of blockage is relieved. There is also a visualization of helping the blood and nerves to transmit the correction of imbalance to the rest of the body and an awareness that the Lymph system is activated to carry toxins away and out of the body. The Liver, Pancreas, Kidneys and Bladder are very common sites of inflammation when there is an imbalance of Uric Acid.
Keep eating the seasonal cherries and broccoli sprouts*. Take time to relax. Drink those 8 glasses of water. And consider adding a therapeutic touch energy session** to your seasonal self care.
* avoid tart cherry juice as it probably contains fructose/added sugar, and sprouts are more effective than the broccoli itself
**energy work promotes health by restoring communication between cells and is, in part, based on quantum physics where it is acknowledged that blood, which contains iron, circulates in our bodies and produces an electromagnetic field which we can become aware of in looking for blockage
