Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That’s some history! Curcumin has it. (Chiropractic enjoys its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India offers much fodder to researchers to investigate just what an impact it has on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is finding credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation continues to study curcumin’s beneficial role in potential inflammation and Tonawanda back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has a long history of use over 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use currently for its ability to control levels of a variety of neurotransmitters in the brain along with preventing cell death. Curcumin affects inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago researchers speculated that curcumin could be a “future drug of therapy for the treatment of various neurological disorders.” Diabetic neuropathy, tardive dyskinesia, and major depression are a few of those such orders. They called for more clinical studies back then to put curcumin into therapeutic use because of its “neuroprotective action” in diseases like Alzheimer’s, tardive dyskinesia, major depression, epilepsy, and other such neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders. Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties may add to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to reduce or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Tonawanda chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin has in dealing with cell death and decreasing inflammation and thereby decreasing Tonawanda back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the optimal way to integrate curcumin for greatest benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is reported to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as decrease inflammation. A recent paper on curcumin brings to light the role curcumin plays in treating neurological diseases (spinal muscular atrophy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis and more). In order to effect more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the researchers share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation realizes many Tonawanda chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite simple and effective. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation will share what’s right for you and your Tonawanda chiropractic treatment plan.
