Gain Relief from Gout Symptoms, Including Pain, With CBD!
Most often affiliated with a tender, swollen big toe, gout is a disease of the joints.
Any joint can be affected, but most of the time the feet and ankles bear the brunt of the pain. The joints become red, swollen, and extremely sensitive to pressure, making walking difficult.
At the beginning of the disease, only one joint is usually involved, but as it progresses, more and more joints begin to show signs of the affliction.
Usually linked to a buildup of uric acid in the blood, or hyperuricemia, the relationship has become rather foggy.
Many people can have extremely high levels of uric acid in their body, but not show any symptoms of gout. This is called, not so surprisingly, “asymptomatic hyperuricemia.”
Those who have been diagnosed as such generally do not have to do anything. It is believed that some bodies just naturally store high levels of uric acid and there is no cause for alarm so long as there is no evidence of gout forming.
Gout is most likely to form in those who already have hyperuricemia and are significantly overweight. The connection is impossible to miss from various studies that have been done.
The levels of uric acid in the body develop into crystallized points of pain in the joints.
The gout can cause the joints to swell up to two or three times the normal size, and even a casual brush against a sore, gout-ridden toe can cause agony.
Luckily, at the beginning stages of the disease, only one joint is usually affected.
Most often, gout shows up in the big toe. First thing in the morning, the gout sufferer will notice that his toe is considerably swollen, sometimes more than double or triple its normal size.
A radiating pain will shoot up the foot if so much as a sheet touches the offending appendage. Walking is out of the question. The joint of the big toe will be stiff, and the area surrounding it will be inflamed, red and possibly hot, suggesting some sort of infection, though there probably isn’t one.
These symptoms will most likely have come on overnight, while the patient slept, and without any warning at all.
It’s not just the toe that will be affected, though. The ankle, knee, wrist, and fingers can also be involved. In fact, over time, just about any joint can be directly affected by gout.
Roughly 2.1 million people in the United States suffer from gout, according to the National Institute of Health. Nine out of 10 of those are men, and most of them are diagnosed between the ages of 40 and 50. As women head into their 60’s and enter menopause, they have a more difficult time keeping their weight down and the incident rate of gout increases dramatically.
The condition is extremely rare in men and women of normal weight or who are under 40 years of age.
Given that the disease is a result of being overweight and a continued build up of uric acid over years, the older a person is when the first symptoms appear, the more mild the condition is likely to be assuming they don’t continue to gain weight during that time, and take care with the rest of their health.
Yes, thankfully it is. When gout sufferers are experiencing acute attacks, doctors usually prescribe one or more of the following medicines: Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), Corticosteroids or Colchicines.
But each of these drugs can have harmful side effects which makes them unattractive over the long run.
The good news is there are two relatively new approaches that have been shown to work well. The first is dietary changes and the second is CBD.
You need to change your diet to enjoy lasting relief from gout, otherwise it will keep coming back. Here are three healthy recipes so you can get an idea of what you need to be eating going forward if you are a gout sufferer.
Preheat the grill pan and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Place a rack over a large baking sheet. Cut the 2 ends off the eggplant. Cut the eggplants lengthwise, into 1/2-inch thick slices.
Arrange eggplant slices onto rack.
Sprinkle with sea salt to help remove excess moisture and any bitterness from the eggplants. Set aside for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Rinse off the salt from the eggplants and pat dry with a towel. Spray hot grill pan liberally with vegetable spray and then place eggplant slices on the grill until lightly browned on each side and tender, about 4 minutes per side.
Remove slices from the grill pan and allow to cool.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl beat eggs until lightly scrambled. Mix the ricotta in with the egg. Add mozzarella, 3 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese and toasted pine nuts and gently combine. Fold in basil just to combine. Do not overmix.
Place a tablespoon of the cheese mixture on 1 end of the eggplant and roll up tightly.
Place the eggplant roll into a greased (with olive oil) 13 by 9-inch baking dish, seam side down. Continue with remaining eggplant.
Evenly distribute the tomato sauce on top of the eggplant rollatini. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with remaining 5 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese and bake for 15 minutes. When cooked, drizzle the top with extra-virgin olive oil.
Prepare lasagna noodles according to package directions. Drain, rinse and set aside.
Grate hard cheeses, combine, and set aside. Lightly coat a deep 4-quart baking dish with olive oil. Place one layer of lasagna noodles in bottom of dish. Spread an even layer of sauce over noodles. Over sauce, place a layer of ricotta, mozzarella and provolone cheeses and cover with a generous amount of sauce. Continue layering ingredients beginning with noodles, until all ingredients have been used, ending with a layer of noodles. Cover with a layer of sauce so the top layer will not burn in the oven.
Place in a 350-degree oven and bake for about 45 minutes or until sauce on top begins to brown.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins
Preheat oven to 400°F. In bowl, stir together flour and baking powder; set aside.
Place milk, eggs, sugar, peanut butter, and salt in a blender or food processor; blend to combine. Pour over dry ingredients; stir just to moisten. Line a 12 muffin pan with paper muffin cups. Fill the lined cups 1/3 full. Place about 1 teaspoon of jam, jelly or preserves in each indentation. Fill muffin cups with batter until about 2/3 full. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan about 5 minutes before serving.
Dietary changes are a more long-term approach to gout relief.
Many experts now believe CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a safer alternative to over-the-counter pain relievers and prescription anti-inflammatories.
We have all heard the horror stories associated with Opioids, which can be highly addictive. And over-the-counter medications aren’t much better. Here are just a few of the side effects associated with them:
Meanwhile, CBD has no major side effects. It offers strong pain relief and is safe, natural and not addictive. It also does not produce a high like marijuana.
CBD reacts differently with the body compared to prescription and over-the-counter medication. CBD binds to the CB1 and CB2 receptors in our endocannabinoid system. By binding with these receptors, preliminary research has shown that CBD may help manage pain and inflammation, headaches and high blood pressure.
