Satterwhite Chiropractic Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That’s some history! Curcumin has 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 see just what an influence it makes on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory ability is finding recognition for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Satterwhite Chiropractic continues to study curcumin’s beneficial role in potential inflammation and Oxford back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin holds an expansive history of use over 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use currently for its ability to control levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain along with preventing cell death. Curcumin affects inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 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 among those such orders. They called for 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 reduce or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Oxford chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin possesses in addressing cell death and decreasing inflammation and thus decreasing Oxford 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 written to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A new paper on curcumin brings to light the role of curcumin in treating neurological diseases (spinal muscular atrophy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis and more). In order to bring 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) Satterwhite Chiropractic realizes many Oxford chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s simple and effective. Satterwhite Chiropractic will share what is right for you and your Oxford chiropractic treatment plan.
