Gout Remedies for the Heel

by an eHow Contributor

Gout is caused by urate crystals that form in the joints. Urate crystals form when there is too much uric acid in the body, as a result of diet or disease. Uric acid is produced when the body breaks down purines, and is normally excreted by the kidneys. If too much uric acid is present and/or not excreted, the urate crystals form and can make the joints feel swollen. Often, the feet--including the toes and heels--are parts of the body where urate crystals form.

  1. Bathe the Heel

    • Soaking the feed in various medicinal baths can help relieve gout in the heel. One option is to add 1/3 of a cup ground ginger to a bathtub filled with hot water and soak the heel and foot. The hot water will cause you to sweat and the ginger will draw out the urates, relieving the swelling in the joint and the gout symptoms. You should leave your foot in the bath for approximately 30 minutes, and wash the foot carefully afterward to remove lingering ginger. An Epsom salt bath is another option--two cups of Epsom salt can be mixed into the water and the foot can be soaked for 30 minutes to relieve pain in the heel.

    Apply a Salve

    • If you cannot soak the heel, there are other remedies that can be applied, including various pastes and salves made from household ingredients. You can grind mustard, and add one part mustard powder to one part whole wheat powder and mix in a little bit of water. The result creates a paste-like salve that can be applied directly to the heel. Leave the salve on overnight to relieve heel pain.

      A soft absorbent cloth, like a flannel cloth, can also be soaked in warm castor oil and placed on the heel, then wrapped in plastic. A heating pad should be applied to keep the castor oil warm as the cloth stays on the heel and is kept on by the plastic.

    Food and Drink

    • Certain drinks such as fresh juices or herbal tea can help reduce the level of uric acid in the body, thus helping urate crystals in the heel to dissolve and relieve the symptoms of gout. Eating cherries, drinking black cherry juice or eating strawberries can also provide relief from gout that is causing heel pain. Lemon juice and water drunk three times daily is also helpful. Finally, organic apple cider vinegar mixed with honey can be consumed and pain relief will be achieved within hours.
