Spengel Chiropractic Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That’s some history! Curcumin owns it. (Chiropractic enjoys its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India gives much data to researchers to study just what an impact it makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Spengel Chiropractic continues to study curcumin’s positive role in possible inflammation and McHenry back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has an expansive history of usage going back 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 along with 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 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 stop reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your McHenry 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 reducing inflammation and thereby reducing McHenry 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 report on curcumin reveals the role curcumin plays in treating neurological diseases (spinal muscular atrophy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis and more). In order 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) Spengel Chiropractic knows many McHenry chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite simple and effective. Spengel Chiropractic will share what’s right for you and your McHenry chiropractic treatment plan.
