Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That is some history! Curcumin has it. (Chiropractic delights in its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India gives much fodder to researchers to investigate just what an influence it has on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is finding credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center remains interested in curcumin’s beneficial role in potential inflammation and Pensacola back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has a long history of usage over 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use currently for its ability to modulate levels of a variety of brain neurotransmitters along with stopping cell death. Curcumin affects inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 researchers suggested 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 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 contribute to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to slow or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your Pensacola chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin has in addressing cell death and decreasing inflammation and thereby reducing Pensacola back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the best way to incorporate curcumin for maximal benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is reported to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A new paper on curcumin reveals the role of curcumin 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 authors present the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes of using curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center realizes many Pensacola chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s simple and effective. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center will share what is right for you and your Pensacola chiropractic treatment plan.
