    …gout can cause calcium oxalate Or uric acid stones. The latter of which are rather soluble with bicarbonate or citrate, the latter of which is found in lemon juice. Bicarbonate is found in baking soda, but sodium is actually a risk factor for stones as sodium will excrete calcium. Look for potassium bicarbonate instead. It will treat gout too by increasing uric acid solubility. Citrate will also change the pH; 6-6.5, so lemon juice should dissolve gout too.

    Excess Vitamin C, such as from supplements, can allegedly convert to oxalate which is a risk factor for calcium oxalate nephrolithiasis, as is gout, via increased uric acid supersaturation of the urin which promotes kidney stone formation.

    Bananas are NOT a natural food the way they are grown today.

    truly Natural Bananas , like all Fruits grown properaly, have SEEDS. The Bananas we get in USA do not have seeds, due to massive hybridization in growing which causes minerals to go down and sugar goes way up.

    Any Fruit thats grown as a Hybrid that takes away its natural seeds, is NOT natural, such as Bananas, Pineapples and Kiwis.

    Obviously all seedless grapes and watermelons are Un natural also

    Thanks for this. I’m just starting to get over gout in my big toe which I have had for 10 days. Very painful, little sympathy from wife! It’s kind of comforting to know that I’m not the only one. Funny, I have had a craving for bananas since I got my gout and I have been eating two a day – coincidence?
