Pflugerville Wellness Center Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. 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 provides much data to researchers to investigate just what an impact it makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory ability is finding credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Pflugerville Wellness Center continues to study curcumin’s positive role in possible inflammation and Pflugerville back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin possesses a long history of usage going back 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use currently for its ability to modulate levels of a variety of neurotransmitters in the brain along with preventing cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago researchers speculated 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 requested more 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 thereby preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your Pflugerville chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin possesses in dealing with cell death and reducing inflammation and thereby reducing Pflugerville back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the best way to integrate curcumin for greatest benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is reported to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as decrease inflammation. A new 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 present the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes of using curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center knows many Pflugerville chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. Pflugerville Wellness Center will suggest what’s right for you and your Pflugerville chiropractic treatment plan.
