Hollstrom & Associates Inc Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That’s quite a 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 fodder to researchers to study just what an impact it has on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory ability is finding credit for positive influence on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Hollstrom & Associates Inc remains interested in curcumin’s positive role in potential inflammation and Largo back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has a long history of use over 4000 years (1) yet a briefer history of use currently for its ability to modulate levels of various brain neurotransmitters as well as preventing 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 among those such orders. They requested additional 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 Largo chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin possesses in dealing with cell death and reducing inflammation and thereby reducing Largo back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the best way to incorporate curcumin for greatest benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is reported to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as decrease inflammation. A new 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 order 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) Hollstrom & Associates Inc realizes many Largo chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite simple and effective. Hollstrom & Associates Inc will suggest what’s right for you and your Largo chiropractic treatment plan.
