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 offers much fodder to researchers to investigate just what an impact it makes on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is finding credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic remains interested in curcumin’s positive role in possible inflammation and Augusta back pain reduction.
Curcumin holds a long history of use over 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use in present day for its ability to modulate levels of a variety of brain neurotransmitters as well as stopping cell death. Curcumin influences 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 among those such orders. They requested more clinical studies back then to put 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 add to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to reduce or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your Augusta chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin possesses in dealing with cell death and reducing inflammation and thereby reducing Augusta back pain.
CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION
What is the best way to incorporate curcumin for greatest benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is written to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A new report 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 present the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic realizes many Augusta chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite simple and effective. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic will share what’s right for you and your Augusta chiropractic treatment plan.
