Wilson Family Chiropractic Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That’s quite a history! Curcumin claims it. (Chiropractic delights in its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India offers much data to researchers to study just what an impact it makes on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory ability is gaining credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Wilson Family Chiropractic remains interested in curcumin’s beneficial role in possible inflammation and Millville back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has a long history of usage over 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use in present day for its ability to modulate levels of a variety of brain neurotransmitters in addition to preventing cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 researchers speculated 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 additional clinical studies back then to put 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 add to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to slow or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Millville chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin has in dealing with cell death and decreasing inflammation and thus decreasing Millville 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 written to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as decrease 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 effect more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the authors share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic realizes many Millville chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. Wilson Family Chiropractic will share what is right for you and your Millville chiropractic treatment plan.
