Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That is 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 gives much data to researchers to study just what an influence it makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining recognition for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic continues to study curcumin’s positive role in potential inflammation and Eugene back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin holds an expansive history of usage over 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use currently for its ability to control levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain in addition to stopping cell death. Curcumin affects inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 researchers posited 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 a few of those such orders. They called for more 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 reduce or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Eugene chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin possesses in addressing cell death and decreasing inflammation and thus decreasing Eugene back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the best way to integrate curcumin for greatest benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is reported to counteract diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A new paper 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). In order to bring more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the authors share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic realizes many Eugene chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic will suggest what’s right for you and your Eugene chiropractic treatment plan.
