Gout Treatment News

New Natural Gout Treatment Being Tested At Science Competition

I thought I'd take the quickly mention one of the possible new treatments for gout some of you may wish to keep an eye on. There is a science competition taking place in the United States and a group of Malaysian students is going to test a natural remedy that Malaysians have used for centuries for differing maladies.

The article stated, "Fatimah Thohirah Abdul Halim from SMK Wangsa Melawati said
she spent a year researching the potential benefits of local plant kelempayan
(Neolamarkcia cadamba) for the treatment of gout. "Kelempayan has always been used in traditional Malay treatment. We could be looking at the cure for gout
without nasty side effects as it is derived naturally," she said. "
This competition is slated to begin tomorrow through May 16th. You can read the whole article here.

Until later,
