Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That is some history! Curcumin claims it. (Chiropractic delights in its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India offers much data to researchers to study just what an impact it has on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is finding recognition for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries continues to study curcumin’s beneficial role in possible inflammation and Manchester back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has a long history of usage going back 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use in present day for its ability to modulate levels of a variety of brain neurotransmitters as well as stopping cell death. Curcumin affects 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 recommended 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 halt reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your Manchester 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 decreasing inflammation and thus decreasing Manchester 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 reported to counteract diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as decrease inflammation. A recent 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 bring more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the authors share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries realizes many Manchester chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s simple and effective. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries will share what is right for you and your Manchester chiropractic treatment plan.
