Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That’s some history! Curcumin owns it. (Chiropractic delights in its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India provides much data to researchers to see just what an influence it has on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory ability is gaining credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn continues to study curcumin’s beneficial role in potential inflammation and Ashburn back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin holds a long history of usage going back 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use currently for its ability to control levels of various brain neurotransmitters along with stopping cell death. Curcumin influences 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 requested further 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 add to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to slow or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your Ashburn chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin has in dealing with cell death and reducing inflammation and thereby reducing Ashburn 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 written to counteract diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as decrease inflammation. A recent report on curcumin reveals the role curcumin plays in treating neurological diseases (spinal muscular atrophy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis and more). To effect 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows many Ashburn chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s simple and effective. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn will suggest what’s right for you and your Ashburn chiropractic treatment plan.
