Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That’s quite a history! Curcumin owns it. (Chiropractic enjoys its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India offers much fodder to researchers to study just what an influence it makes on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is finding recognition for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office continues to study curcumin’s beneficial role in possible inflammation and Groton back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has an expansive history of use going back 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use currently for its ability to modulate levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain as well as stopping cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 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 a few of those such orders. They called for additional clinical studies back then to place 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 reduce or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Groton chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin possesses in dealing with cell death and reducing inflammation and thus reducing Groton back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the optimal way to incorporate curcumin for maximal benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is written to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A new 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 share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes of using curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office realizes many Groton chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office will share what is right for you and your Groton chiropractic treatment plan.
