The Gout Clinic offers various programs.
Choose between them according to your needs and possebilities.
The Programs are all performed at The Gout Clinic, with luxury oceanside ensuite rooms with a fantastic sea view.
During participation in any Program, NO alcohol should be consumed (speeding up the healing process).
Full 35 days Program
This program should cover Step 1 of the healing process, described in the treatments page (lowering your Uric Acid "UA" levels drastically).
Step 1 is the most intensive Step and just following our healing protocols is a "Full Time" job. For this reason, we strongly advise following the full program to make it easy for you. You will need lots of assistance during Step 1.
During the Program, you will learn how to complete the more comfortable Step 2, back at home, with online help.
You will follow the Program in tiny groups, max four people, and will get +250 hours of therapy.
Cost: US$ 4200 / week, all-inclusive (see below).
Boost 10 days Program
The short boost program is ideal for patients who are already in Step 2 of the healing process (dissolving UA precipitates) and in need of a new boost. Helping patients who are experiences a longer Step 2 (see healing gout). Remember that the lower your UA levels are, the shorter step 2 will be. This short program will help to achieve this.
The Program may also be beneficial for Patients in Step 3, but due to an unhealthy lifestyle (fast-food, beer drinking, etc.) are in need of a short boost to be on the right track again. Our ten days Program will help these patients to stay healthy and gout free, and this in an easy way, just by following the program.
We also allow new patients into these programs, in this case, the patients will be prepared and have to continue with Step 1 after returning home (which we believe will be very challenging due to the variety of different treatments and a significant amount of labor & time involved, but it is possible).
You will follow the Program in tiny groups, max four people.
Cost: US$ 9800 for ten days, 11 nights all-inclusive.
Intense 5 days Program
Patients who have time restrictions can benefit from this intensive Program.
Besides getting lots of therapies, you will be educated to continue your treatment at home, for this you will be thought how to treat yourself with acupuncture. At the completion of the Program, you will receive a certification: self-treatment of gout by acupuncture. You will have learned about the crucial acupuncture points for reversing gout, the safety aspects, and needling practice.
At the end of the program, you should be able to manage your own gout reversing.
But as mentioned above under the ten days program, this can be very challenging due to the variety of different treatments and a significant amount of labor & time involved. After this very short five days program, you can expect to go home with lower uric acid levels. This five-day program is an intensive program, starting every day at 8 am and finishing at 9:30 pm. ONLY FOR VERY MOTIVATED PEOPLE.
But it is an attractive program; we do not announce dates like for a scheduled full program. When you want to participate, contact us.
You will follow the Program in tiny groups, max four people.
Cost: US$ 6400 for five days, six nights all-inclusive.
