New Roads Chiropractic Center Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That’s quite a history! Curcumin claims it. (Chiropractic delights in its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India gives 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 gaining recognition for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. New Roads Chiropractic Center continues to study curcumin’s beneficial role in possible inflammation and New Roads back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin possesses a long history of use going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use currently for its ability to modulate levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain as well as preventing cell death. Curcumin affects inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 researchers suggested that curcumin may well 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 called for additional 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 slow or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your New Roads chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin has in dealing with cell death and reducing inflammation and thus decreasing New Roads 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 reported to counteract diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce 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 authors share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center realizes many New Roads chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. New Roads Chiropractic Center will suggest what is right for you and your New Roads chiropractic treatment plan.
