HELP FOR Minster MIGRAINE

Cinnamon’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties were put to the test for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has higher levels of inflammation. Compared to a control treatment, cinnamon significantly reduced levels of inflammatory agents, interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also decreased the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes. Cinnamon helped migraine in this study! Additionally, cinnamon is a safe supplement.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a familiar health issue for many Minster folks. Cinnamon supplementation positively and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Quite a few reports have reported that cinnamon reduced blood pressure. A recent meta-analysis of 9 randomized clinical trials reported that cinnamon supplementation can improve blood pressure by a modest degree overall.  Significant reductions in both diastolic and systolic blood pressure lessened when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8 weeks. (3) That is news worth sharing with our Minster chiropractic patients.

DIABETES TYPE II

Minster Chiropractic Center cares for many patients who also have diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease involving a variety of different issues related to insulin resistance or low production of it by the pancreas. This all results in lifelong damage to organs over a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the management. Cinnamon is cited as a positive choice for diabetic hypertensive patients. (4) A survey of the use of complementary alternative medicine by diabetic patients revealed that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% consumed cinnamon.
