Amelia Chiropractic Clinic Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That’s some history! Curcumin owns 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 study just what an influence it makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory ability is finding recognition for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic remains interested in curcumin’s beneficial role in potential inflammation and Fernandina Beach back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin possesses an expansive history of usage over 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use in present day for its ability to modulate levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain as well as preventing cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago 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 among those such orders. They requested 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 thereby preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin has in addressing cell death and reducing inflammation and thus decreasing Fernandina Beach 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 an effort to bring 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows many Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic will suggest what is right for you and your Fernandina Beach chiropractic treatment plan.
