Philosophy of the Plan

Elevated uric acid levels lie at the root of many pervasive health conditions, but mainstream medicine for the most part remains unaware of this connection.
Consumption of fructose and purines often exceed the body’s ability to process them, and as a result, too much uric acid builds up in the bloodstream.
A diet low in fructose and purines and rich in anti-oxidants, flavonoids, and polyphenols can bring uric acid levels under control and restore optimal metabolism in the body, preventing often life-threatening chronic disease.

“David Perlmutter, MD, empowers us to understand the overproduction of uric acid, an often-overlooked biomarker that plays a key role in metabolic health. He connects the dots and leads us to the nutritional and lifestyle practices that can provide the ‘U turn’ many of us desperately need to be fit and mentally sharp. This extraordinary book is equally important for healthcare providers as well as for health seekers."

Drop Acid

Drop Acid: The Surprising New Science of Uric Acid—The Key to Losing Weight, Controlling Blood Sugar, and Achieving Extraordinary Health

Unlock the secret to extraordinary health by reducing high uric acid levels—the hidden risk you didn’t know you had—by the author of Grain Brain and Brain Wash.

What do obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, fatty liver disease, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, neurological disorders, and premature death have in common? All can be stoked by high uric acid levels.

Our most respected scientific literature is bursting with evidence that elevated uric acid levels lie at the root of many pervasive health conditions, but mainstream medicine for the most part remains unaware of this connection. This is especially alarming because a large number of Americans don’t know they are suffering from increased levels, putting them at risk for developing or exacerbating potentially life-threatening illnesses.
