Chiropractic Solutions Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That is quite a history! Curcumin has it. (Chiropractic delights in its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India offers much fodder to researchers to examine just what an impact it has on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining recognition for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Chiropractic Solutions continues to study curcumin’s beneficial role in possible inflammation and San Jose back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin holds a long history of use going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use currently for its ability to control levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain along with preventing cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 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 further 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 slow or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your San Jose chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin has in dealing with cell death and reducing inflammation and thus reducing San Jose back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the optimal way to incorporate curcumin for greatest benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is reported to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A new paper on curcumin reveals the role of curcumin in treating neurological diseases (spinal muscular atrophy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis and more). In order to bring more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the authors share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes of using curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Chiropractic Solutions knows many San Jose chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. Chiropractic Solutions will suggest what’s right for you and your San Jose chiropractic treatment plan.
