Layden Chiropractic Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That’s 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 gives much fodder to researchers to study just what an impact it makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory ability is finding recognition for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Layden Chiropractic continues to study curcumin’s beneficial role in possible inflammation and Plainville back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin possesses a long history of usage going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use currently for its ability to control levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain in addition to stopping cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 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 among those such orders. They requested more clinical studies back then to place 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 add to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to reduce or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Plainville chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin has in dealing with cell death and reducing inflammation and thereby reducing Plainville back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the best way to incorporate curcumin for greatest benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is reported to counteract diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A recent report on curcumin reveals the role of curcumin in treating neurological diseases (spinal muscular atrophy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis and more). In an effort to bring more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the researchers present the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Layden Chiropractic realizes many Plainville chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s simple and effective. Layden Chiropractic will share what’s right for you and your Plainville chiropractic treatment plan.
