Moses Chiropractic Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That is quite a history! Curcumin owns it. (Chiropractic delights in its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India gives much data to researchers to investigate just what an impact it has on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining recognition for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Moses Chiropractic remains interested in curcumin’s beneficial role in potential inflammation and West Palm Beach back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has a long history of use going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use currently for its ability to control levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain along with stopping cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago researchers suggested 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 further clinical studies back then to place 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 reduce or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach 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 recent report 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). To bring more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the researchers present the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Moses Chiropractic realizes many West Palm Beach chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. Moses Chiropractic will suggest what’s right for you and your West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan.
