Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville 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 gives much data to researchers to study just what an impact it has on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville remains interested in curcumin’s beneficial role in potential inflammation and St. Francisville back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin possesses an expansive history of usage going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use in present day for its ability to control levels of a variety of brain neurotransmitters along with stopping cell death. Curcumin affects inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 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 among those such orders. They recommended additional 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 slow or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your St. Francisville chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin possesses in dealing with cell death and decreasing inflammation and thereby decreasing St. Francisville 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 new paper on curcumin reveals the role curcumin plays in treating neurological diseases (spinal muscular atrophy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis and more). In an effort to effect more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the authors share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville knows many St. Francisville chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville will suggest what’s right for you and your St. Francisville chiropractic treatment plan.
