HELP FOR New Roads 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 higher levels of inflammation. Compared to a control treatment,
cinnamon significantly reduced levels of inflammatory agents,
interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also decreased
the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes.
Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center gladly shares
research-based safe options to try for health.
Blood pressure is a common health issue
for many New Roads folks. Supplementing with cinnamon positively and significantly affected
diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly
affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Several studies
have reported that cinnamon reduced blood pressure. A recent
meta-analysis of 9 randomized clinical trials reported that cinnamon
supplementation can improve blood pressure by a modest degree
overall. Significant reductions in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased
when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight
weeks. (3) That’s news worth sharing with our
New Roads chiropractic patients.
DIABETES TYPE II
New Roads Chiropractic Center takes care of many patients
who also are diagnosed with diabetes type II. Diabetes
mellitus is a disease involving a variety of
different issues related to insulin resistance or low
production of it by the pancreas. This all gives rise to lifelong damage to organs throughout a lifetime.
Management is complex. Herbs are frequently included in the
management. Cinnamon is mentioned as an advantageous choice for diabetic hypertensive patients. (4) A
survey of the use of complementary alternative medicine by diabetic patients found
that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% consumed
cinnamon. (5) New Roads Chiropractic Center requests to know what our
chiropractic patients are using and if they find benefit.
