Back And Neck Care Center Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That’s quite a history! Curcumin owns it. (Chiropractic delights in its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India gives much data to researchers to see just what an influence it makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining credit for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Back And Neck Care Center continues to study curcumin’s positive role in possible inflammation and Severna Park back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin possesses an expansive history of use over 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use currently for its ability to control levels of a variety of neurotransmitters in the brain as well as stopping cell death. Curcumin affects inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago 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 recommended 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 slow or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your Severna Park chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin possesses in addressing cell death and reducing inflammation and thus reducing Severna Park 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 reported to counteract diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as decrease inflammation. A recent report on curcumin brings to light the role of curcumin 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) Back And Neck Care Center knows many Severna Park chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite easy and effective. Back And Neck Care Center will share what’s right for you and your Severna Park chiropractic treatment plan.
