Palmer Chiropractic Center Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That is some history! Curcumin owns it. (Chiropractic delights in 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 influence it makes on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory capability is gaining credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Palmer Chiropractic Center continues to study curcumin’s beneficial role in potential inflammation and Lynchburg back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has a long history of usage over 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use in present day for its ability to control levels of a variety of neurotransmitters in the brain as well as preventing cell death. Curcumin affects inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago researchers posited that curcumin could 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 recommended 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 contribute to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to reduce or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Lynchburg chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin has in addressing cell death and decreasing inflammation and thus decreasing Lynchburg 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 counteract diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A new paper on curcumin brings to light the role curcumin plays 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 of using curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Palmer Chiropractic Center knows many Lynchburg chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite simple and effective. Palmer Chiropractic Center will suggest what is right for you and your Lynchburg chiropractic treatment plan.
