Organic cherry juice "not" from concentrate that you find in health food stores eliminates all gout symptoms for me within 24-36 hrs. As soon as I feel it coming on I start to drink lots and lots of water. I also drink 32 ounces of pure organic cherry juice right away and 32 ounces more the next day. The pain releif starts very quickly and by the next day im completly pain free.
Most grocery stores carry an apple cherry blend which is not quite as effective but still helps a whole lot.
