Manahawkin 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 offers much fodder to researchers to see just what an impact it has on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory capability is finding credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center continues to study curcumin’s positive role in potential inflammation and Manahawkin back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has a long history of use 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 as well as stopping cell death. Curcumin affects 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 a few of those such orders. They called for more 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 add to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to slow or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Manahawkin chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin possesses in dealing with cell death and decreasing inflammation and thus reducing Manahawkin 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 reported to offset 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 authors present the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows many Manahawkin chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite simple and effective. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center will share what’s right for you and your Manahawkin chiropractic treatment plan.
