Most Chiropractic Clinic Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That is some history! Curcumin has it. (Chiropractic enjoys its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India provides much fodder to researchers to see just what an influence it makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory capability is finding recognition for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Most Chiropractic Clinic remains interested in curcumin’s beneficial role in possible inflammation and Murfreesboro back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin possesses a long history of use over 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use in present day for its ability to modulate levels of various brain neurotransmitters along with preventing cell death. Curcumin affects inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago researchers posited 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 requested 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 add to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to reduce or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Murfreesboro chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin possesses in dealing with cell death and reducing inflammation and thereby decreasing Murfreesboro back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the best way to incorporate curcumin for maximal benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is reported to counteract diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as decrease 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 regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic realizes many Murfreesboro chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite simple and effective. Most Chiropractic Clinic will share what’s right for you and your Murfreesboro chiropractic treatment plan.
