The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That is some history! Curcumin has 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 examine just what an impact it has on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory capability is finding recognition for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR remains interested in curcumin’s beneficial role in possible inflammation and Colorado Springs back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin holds an expansive history of usage over 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use in present day for its ability to modulate 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 further 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 contribute to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to slow or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Colorado Springs chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin has in addressing cell death and reducing inflammation and thus reducing Colorado Springs back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the optimal 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 decrease 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). 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows many Colorado Springs chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s simple and effective. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR will share what is right for you and your Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plan.
