Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That is quite a 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 investigate just what an influence it makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining recognition for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation remains interested in curcumin’s positive role in potential inflammation and Carrolltown back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin holds a long history of usage over 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use in present day for its ability to modulate levels of a variety of neurotransmitters in the brain in addition to preventing cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 researchers speculated 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 put 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 contribute to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to reduce or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your Carrolltown chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin possesses in addressing cell death and reducing inflammation and thereby reducing Carrolltown 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 reported 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 an effort to bring more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the researchers share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes of using curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows many Carrolltown chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation will share what’s right for you and your Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan.
