Cinnamon. It is a tasty way to help
several health issues: migraine, blood pressure,
diabetes mellitus. Chiropractic is all about health! Nutritional approaches to
various ailments enhance the body’s ability
to take care of itself. The key is finding which ones are
best for what! Apple Country Chiropractic describes a few
of the recent papers about this simple
HELP FOR Williamson MIGRAINE
anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties were put to the
test for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache
type, has increased levels of inflammation. Compared to a control treatment,
cinnamon significantly decreased levels of inflammatory agents,
interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also lessened
the frequency, severity and duration of migraine attacks.
Cinnamon helped migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe. (1) Apple Country Chiropractic gladly shares
research-based safe options to try for health.
Blood pressure is a common health condition
for many Williamson folks. Cinnamon
supplementation favorably and significantly affected
diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly
affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Several studies
have stated that cinnamon reduced blood pressure. A recent
meta-analysis of 9 randomized clinical trials reported that cinnamon
supplementation can boost blood pressure by a modest degree
overall. Significant reductions in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased
when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8
weeks. (3) That is news worth sharing with our
Williamson chiropractic patients.
DIABETES TYPE II
Apple Country Chiropractic cares for many patients
who also are dealing with diabetes type II. Diabetes
mellitus is a disease involving a variety of
different issues associated with insulin resistance or low
production of it by the pancreas. This all gives rise to lifelong damage to organs over a lifetime.
Management is complex. Herbs are frequently included in the
management. Cinnamon is cited as a
favorable choice for diabetic hypertensive patients. (4) A
survey of the use of complementary alternative medicine by diabetic patients found
that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% used
cinnamon. (5) Apple Country Chiropractic wants to know what our
chiropractic patients are taking and if they find benefit.
