taken internally, of course!

Check out Election 2004 for up-to-date election news, plus voter tools and
- That's the first I'd heard of using cherry - ran a google on 'gout
cherry' and it seems to be very well documented.
I suspect that cranberry juice would also work, flushing uric acid
from the bloodstream, might be easier to find in grocery store too.
Then there's always dandelion tea - they didn't call it 'piss-a-bed'
for nothing ;)

- According to my Father-in-Law's aromatherapy books the
following essential oil recipe is good for gout. Into
2 ounces of olive oil add 5 drops juniperberry oil, 5
drops of rosemary oil and 5 drops of chamomile
oil(either german or Roman will do). Shake well and
massage daily into joint.

- Which books were they? I'm always interested in added good
recommendation to my library wish list. Any favorite scents? I
like anything strong as I have a very poor sniffer. I do some
massage and mostly stick to Sandalwood, Lavendar and Peppermint oils
(not mixed together) as my victims find those the most pleasant.
