Minster Chiropractic Center Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That is quite a history! Curcumin has it. (Chiropractic enjoys its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India provides much data to researchers to study just what an impact it makes on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining recognition for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Minster Chiropractic Center remains interested in curcumin’s positive role in possible inflammation and Minster back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has an expansive history of use going back 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use in present day for its ability to modulate levels of a variety of neurotransmitters in the brain as well as preventing cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago researchers speculated 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 further 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 contribute to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to slow or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Minster chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin possesses in addressing cell death and reducing inflammation and thereby reducing Minster back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the best way to integrate curcumin for greatest benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is written to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A new report 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). To bring more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the researchers share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Minster Chiropractic Center realizes many Minster chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s simple and effective. Minster Chiropractic Center will suggest what is right for you and your Minster chiropractic treatment plan.
