Executive Chiropractic of Iowa Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That’s 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 gives much data to researchers to see just what an impact it makes on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is finding recognition for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa remains interested in curcumin’s beneficial role in possible inflammation and West Des Moines back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin possesses a long history of usage over 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use in present day for its ability to modulate levels of a variety of brain neurotransmitters in addition to preventing 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 a few of those such orders. They called for further clinical studies back then to place 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 add to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to slow or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your West Des Moines 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 decreasing inflammation and thus decreasing West Des Moines 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 written to counteract diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A new paper on curcumin reveals the role curcumin plays in treating neurological diseases (spinal muscular atrophy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis and more). In order to effect more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the researchers present the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows many West Des Moines chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective.
