Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That’s quite a history! Curcumin claims it. (Chiropractic enjoys its 125-year history!) Curcumin’s history of dietary use in Eastern countries like China and India gives much data to researchers to investigate just what an impact it makes on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining recognition for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre remains interested in curcumin’s positive role in possible inflammation and Toronto back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has an expansive history of use going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use in present day for its ability to control levels of various brain neurotransmitters in addition to preventing cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago 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 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 add to its neuroprotectiveness. Curcumin’s ability to slow or stop reactive astrocyte expression and thus preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Toronto chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin has in dealing with cell death and reducing inflammation and thereby reducing Toronto back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the best 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 reduce 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). To bring more attention to curcumin’s benefits, the researchers share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes regarding the use of curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre realizes many Toronto chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre will suggest what is right for you and your Toronto chiropractic treatment plan.
