The Novelli Wellness Center Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

4000 years of use. That’s some history! Curcumin owns 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 investigate just what an influence it makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory substance is gaining credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. The Novelli Wellness Center continues to study curcumin’s positive role in potential inflammation and Buffalo, NY back pain reduction.

CURCUMIN HISTORY

Curcumin possesses an expansive history of usage going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use currently for its ability to modulate levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain along with stopping cell death. Curcumin affects inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and enzymes. (2) Ten years ago 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 a few of those such orders. They called for further clinical studies back then to put 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 advantageous. (3) Your Buffalo, NY chiropractor knows the role of cell death in degenerative spinal conditions like disc disease and appreciates the potential curcumin possesses in addressing cell death and reducing inflammation and thereby reducing Buffalo, NY back pain.

CURCUMIN DIET AND SUPPLEMENTATION

What is the optimal 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 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 present the cellular and molecular mechanisms and clinical trial outcomes of using curcumin in healthy people and people with such diseases. (1) The Novelli Wellness Center realizes many Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients will go the supplementation route as it’s easy and effective. The Novelli Wellness Center will share what’s right for you and your Buffalo, NY chiropractic treatment plan.
