Cross Chiropractic Center Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That’s quite a history! Curcumin has it. (Chiropractic delights in its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India offers much fodder to researchers to examine just what an influence it has on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is finding credit for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Cross Chiropractic Center remains interested in curcumin’s positive role in potential inflammation and Sandy Springs back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin holds an expansive history of usage going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use in present day for its ability to modulate levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain along with preventing cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago researchers posited 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 a few of 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 slow or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Sandy Springs 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 decreasing inflammation and thus decreasing Sandy Springs 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 written 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 effect 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) Cross Chiropractic Center knows many Sandy Springs chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite simple and effective. Cross Chiropractic Center will share what is right for you and your Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment plan.
