Cinnamon. It is a tasty way to address
several health issues: migraine, blood pressure,
diabetes mellitus. Chiropractic is all about health! Nutritional approaches to
various ailments enhance the body’s capability
to take care of itself. The key is figuring out which ones work for what! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR reports on some
of the recent papers regarding this simple
HELP FOR Colorado Springs MIGRAINE
The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon were put to the
test for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache
type, has increased levels of inflammation. Compared to a control option,
cinnamon significantly decreased levels of inflammatory agents,
interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also decreased
the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes.
Cinnamon helped migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR gladly shares
research-based safe alternatives to try for health.
Blood pressure is a familiar health condition
for many Colorado Springs folks. Cinnamon
supplementation favorably and significantly affected
diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure
when taken for at least 8 weeks. (2) Quite a few studies
have reported that cinnamon reduced blood pressure. A new
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’s news worth sharing with our
Colorado Springs chiropractic patients.
DIABETES TYPE II
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR cares for many patients
who also are diagnosed with diabetes type II. Diabetes
mellitus is a disease encompassing many
different issues related to insulin resistance or low
production of it by the pancreas. This all brings
about lifelong damage to organs over a lifetime.
Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the
management. Cinnamon is cited as a positive choice for diabetic hypertensive patients. (4) A
survey of the use of complementary alternative medicine by diabetic patients revealed
that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% consumed
cinnamon. (5) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR wants to know what our
chiropractic patients are using and if they find benefit.
