Spinal Care Clinic Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That is quite a history! Curcumin claims it. (Chiropractic enjoys its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India offers much data to researchers to see just what an influence it makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is finding recognition for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Spinal Care Clinic continues to study curcumin’s positive role in potential inflammation and Burlington and Hamilton 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 modulate levels of a variety of brain neurotransmitters in addition to preventing cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago researchers speculated 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 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 halt reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor understands 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 thereby decreasing Burlington and Hamilton back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the optimal way to integrate curcumin for maximal benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is reported to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as decrease inflammation. A recent paper on curcumin brings to light 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 share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Spinal Care Clinic knows many Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite easy and effective. Spinal Care Clinic will share what is right for you and your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic treatment plan.
