Chiropractic Care Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That is quite a 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 see just what an influence it makes on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining recognition for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Chiropractic Care continues to study curcumin’s positive role in potential inflammation and West Palm Beach back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has an expansive history of usage over 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use currently for its ability to control levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain in addition to preventing cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago researchers suggested that curcumin may well 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 additional clinical studies back then to place 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 contribute to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to reduce or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin possesses in addressing cell death and decreasing inflammation and thus reducing West Palm Beach back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the best way to integrate curcumin for maximal benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is reported to counteract diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A new paper on curcumin reveals the role of curcumin 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 authors present the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes of using curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Chiropractic Care realizes many West Palm Beach chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite easy and effective. Chiropractic Care will suggest what’s right for you and your West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan.
