diabetes mellitus. Chiropractic is all about health! Nutritional approaches to

of the recent papers regarding this simple
HELP FOR Ashburn MIGRAINE
The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache
type, has increased 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 attacks.
Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe. (1) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn happily shares
research-based safe alternatives to try for health.
Blood pressure is a common health condition
for many Ashburn folks. Supplementing with cinnamon favorably and significantly affected
diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure
when taken for at least 8 weeks. (2) Quite a few reports
have stated that cinnamon reduced blood pressure. A recent
meta-analysis of 9 randomized clinical trials reported that cinnamon
supplementation can boost blood pressure by a modest degree
overall. Significant reductions in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure reduced
when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight
weeks. (3) That’s news worth giving to our
Ashburn chiropractic patients.
DIABETES TYPE II
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn takes care of many patients
who also are diagnosed with diabetes type II. Diabetes
mellitus is a disease encompassing a variety of
different issues related to insulin resistance or low
production of it by the pancreas. This all results in lifelong damage to organs throughout a lifetime.
Management is complex. Herbs are frequently included in the
management. Cinnamon is mentioned as a positive choice for diabetic hypertensive patients. (4) A
survey of the use of complementary alternative medicine by diabetic patients revealed
that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% consumed
cinnamon. (5) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn wants to know what our
chiropractic patients are taking and if they find benefit.
