Vancouver Disc Centers Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of consumption. That is some history! Curcumin owns 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 examine just what an impact it has on disease. And there is a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is finding recognition for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Vancouver Disc Centers continues to study curcumin’s positive role in possible inflammation and Vancouver back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin has a long history of usage going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use in present day for its ability to control levels of a variety of neurotransmitters in the brain in addition to stopping cell death. Curcumin affects inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Back in 2010 researchers suggested that curcumin may well 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 slow or halt reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is beneficial. (3) Your Vancouver chiropractor understands the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and values the potential curcumin possesses in addressing cell death and reducing inflammation and thereby reducing Vancouver 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 reported to offset diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A new report on curcumin reveals 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 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) Vancouver Disc Centers realizes many Vancouver chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. Vancouver Disc Centers will share what’s right for you and your Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan.
