At the tender age of 43 I have just been diagnosed with GOUT. This means no red meat, no crustaceans, and no dairy products. I don't want to die young, neither do I want continue with a scorpion attacking the big toe of my right foot. Is there any way around this grim affliction? My doctor has given me a plastic walking stick which I have subsequently upgraded to a silver topped bull's pizzle, but I am, quite honestly, like a sail without wind.
Isn't there some Chinese herb that I can take?
