Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

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 HISTORY

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. (3) Your Auburn chiropractor understands the role of 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. knows many Auburn chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite easy and effective. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. will suggest what’s right for you and your Auburn chiropractic treatment plan.
