4000 years of consumption. That’s some history! Curcumin claims it. (Chiropractic enjoys its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern
countries like China and India gives much fodder
to researchers to study just what an impact
it has on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory
substance is gaining credit
for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and
pain. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. remains interested in curcumin’s positive role in potential inflammation
and Auburn back pain reduction.
Curcumin has an expansive
history of use going back 4000 years (1) yet a briefer
history of use in present day for its ability to control
levels of various brain neurotransmitters in addition to stopping
cell death. Curcumin affects 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 requested more 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 reduce or stop
reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is beneficial.

cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates
the potential curcumin has in dealing with
cell death and reducing inflammation and thus reducing
Auburn back pain.
CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION
What is the optimal way to integrate
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 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 effect
more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the researchers share
the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding
the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
