HELP FOR San Jose MIGRAINE
The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache
type, has higher levels of inflammation. Compared to a control treatment,
cinnamon significantly decreased levels of inflammatory agents,
interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also reduced
the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes.
Cinnamon helped migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe. (1) Chiropractic Solutions gladly shares
research-based safe options to try for health.
Blood pressure is a common health issue
for many San Jose folks. Supplementing with cinnamon positively and significantly affected
diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure
when taken for at least 8 weeks. (2) Several reports
have stated 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 reduced
when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8
weeks. (3) That is news worth sharing with our
San Jose chiropractic patients.
DIABETES TYPE II
Chiropractic Solutions cares for many patients
who also are dealing with diabetes type II. Diabetes
mellitus is a disease encompassing a variety of
different issues associated with insulin resistance or low
production of it by the pancreas. This all results in lifelong damage to organs throughout a lifetime.
Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the
management. Cinnamon is cited as a positive 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) Chiropractic Solutions requests to know what our
chiropractic patients are taking and if they find benefit.
