Malverne Health & Wellness Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That’s quite a history! Curcumin owns 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 makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining credit for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Malverne Health & Wellness remains interested in curcumin’s positive role in possible inflammation and Malverne back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin possesses 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 neurotransmitters in the brain in addition to 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 recommended more 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 contribute to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to slow or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your Malverne chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin possesses in addressing cell death and reducing inflammation and thus reducing Malverne 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 offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as decrease inflammation. A recent report 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) Malverne Health & Wellness realizes many Malverne chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite easy and effective. Malverne Health & Wellness will share what is right for you and your Malverne chiropractic treatment plan.
