HELP FOR Plainville MIGRAINE

The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has higher levels of inflammation. Compared to a control option, cinnamon significantly decreased levels of inflammatory agents, interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also lessened the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes. Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe.

BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure is a common health issue for many Plainville folks. Supplementing with cinnamon favorably and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Several reports have stated 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 systolic and diastolic blood pressure lessened when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight weeks. (3) That is news worth giving to our Plainville chiropractic patients.

DIABETES TYPE II

Layden Chiropractic takes care of many patients who also are dealing with 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 throughout a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the management. Cinnamon is cited as a favorable choice for diabetic hypertensive patients.
