HELP FOR Baton Rouge MIGRAINE
The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache
type, has higher levels of inflammation. Compared to a control option,
cinnamon significantly reduced levels of inflammatory agents,
interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also decreased
the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes.
Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation gladly shares
research-based safe alternatives to try for health.
Blood pressure is a familiar health issue
for many Baton Rouge folks. Supplementing with cinnamon positively and significantly affected
diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure
when taken for at least 8 weeks. (2) Several studies
have stated that cinnamon reduced blood pressure. A new
meta-analysis of 9 randomized clinical trials reported that cinnamon
supplementation can boost blood pressure by a modest degree
overall. Significant reductions in both diastolic
and systolic blood pressure decreased
when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight
weeks. (3) That is news worth sharing with our
Baton Rouge chiropractic patients.
DIABETES TYPE II
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation cares for many patients
who also have diabetes type II. Diabetes
mellitus is a disease involving many
different issues related to insulin resistance or low
production of it by the pancreas. This all brings
about lifelong damage to organs over a lifetime.
Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the
management. Cinnamon is cited as a positive choice for diabetic hypertensive patients. (4) A
survey of the use of complementary alternative medicine by diabetic patients found
that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% used
cinnamon. (5) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation requests to know what our
chiropractic patients are taking and if they find benefit.
