HELP FOR McHenry MIGRAINE
The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache
type, has increased levels of inflammation. Compared to a control treatment,
cinnamon significantly decreased levels of inflammatory agents,
interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also decreased
the frequency, severity and duration of migraine attacks.
Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe. (1) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic gladly shares
research-based safe alternatives to try for health.
Blood pressure is a familiar health issue
for many McHenry folks. Cinnamon
supplementation favorably and significantly affected
diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly
affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Quite a few 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 diastolic
and systolic blood pressure decreased
when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8
weeks. (3) That is news worth sharing with our
McHenry chiropractic patients.
DIABETES TYPE II
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic cares for many patients
who also have diabetes type II. Diabetes
mellitus is a disease involving many
different issues associated with 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 mentioned as a
favorable choice for diabetic hypertensive patients. (4) A
survey of the use of complementary alternative medicine by diabetic patients found
that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% used
cinnamon. (5) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic wants to know what our
chiropractic patients are using and if they find benefit.
