Apple Country Chiropractic Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That’s some history! Curcumin claims it. (Chiropractic delights in its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India provides much data to researchers to study just what an influence it has on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining credit for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Apple Country Chiropractic remains interested in curcumin’s positive role in possible inflammation and Williamson back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin holds a long history of usage going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use in present day for its ability to control levels of various brain neurotransmitters as well as preventing cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 researchers suggested 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 place curcumin into therapeutic use due to 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 stop reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your Williamson chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin has in addressing cell death and reducing inflammation and thus reducing Williamson back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the best way to incorporate curcumin for greatest 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 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). To bring more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the authors share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes of using curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Apple Country Chiropractic realizes many Williamson chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite simple and effective. Apple Country Chiropractic will share what is right for you and your Williamson chiropractic treatment plan.
