Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That is quite a history! Curcumin claims it. (Chiropractic enjoys its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India offers much data to researchers to study just what an influence it makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory capability is finding recognition for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation remains interested in curcumin’s positive role in possible inflammation and Baton Rouge back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has an expansive history of use over 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use currently for its ability to control levels of a variety of brain neurotransmitters in addition to preventing cell death. Curcumin affects 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 among those such orders. They recommended further 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 contribute to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to reduce or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your Baton Rouge chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin possesses in addressing cell death and decreasing inflammation and thereby reducing Baton Rouge back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the optimal way to incorporate curcumin for greatest benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is written to counteract diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A recent paper 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 regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows many Baton Rouge chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite simple and effective. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation will suggest what’s right for you and your Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan.
