Johnson Chiropractic 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 provides much fodder to researchers to see just what an influence it makes on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory capability is finding recognition for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Johnson Chiropractic continues to study curcumin’s positive role in possible inflammation and Richmond back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has a long history of use over 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use currently for its ability to modulate levels of various brain neurotransmitters as well as preventing cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago researchers suggested that curcumin could be a “future drug of therapy for the treatment of various neurological disorders.” Diabetic neuropathy, tardive dyskinesia, and major depression are a few of those such orders. They requested additional clinical studies back then to place 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 halt reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Richmond chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin possesses in dealing with cell death and decreasing inflammation and thus reducing Richmond back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the best way to incorporate curcumin for maximal 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 curcumin plays in treating neurological diseases (spinal muscular atrophy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis and more). In an effort to effect more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the researchers present the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes of using curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Johnson Chiropractic knows many Richmond chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite easy and effective. Johnson Chiropractic will suggest what’s right for you and your Richmond chiropractic treatment plan.
