Tumeric may help: You will know quickly if tumeric eases the pain of your gout. There are excellent medications for this however - you should see a rheumatologist for gout. I seriously doubt almost anything that a chiropractor proposes. That goes for any presumed relationship between buckwheat and vascular health.

Trust.: It all come down to just who do you trust? I tell my patients just that. You might do well with multiple experts including eye, internal medicine and vascular.
