Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That’s some 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 has on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory ability is finding recognition for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center remains interested in curcumin’s beneficial role in possible inflammation and Paramus back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin holds a long history of use going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use in present day for its ability to modulate levels of a variety of neurotransmitters in the brain along with stopping cell death. Curcumin influences inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago researchers posited 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 additional clinical studies back then to place curcumin into therapeutic use because of 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 Paramus chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin has in dealing with cell death and decreasing inflammation and thereby reducing Paramus 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 reduce inflammation. A recent paper on curcumin reveals 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 authors share the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes of using curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center realizes many Paramus chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center will share what’s right for you and your Paramus chiropractic treatment plan.
