Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Highlights Curcumin's Benefit for Neurological Diseases

June 09, 2020

4000 years of consumption. 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 influence it makes on disease. And there’s a difference! Curcumin‘s anti-inflammatory property is gaining credit for positive effect on neurological diseases, cell death, and pain. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc continues to study curcumin’s positive role in potential inflammation and Fort Wayne back pain reduction.


Curcumin holds a long history of usage going back 4000 years (1) yet a shorter history of use currently 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 speculated 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 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 stop reactive astrocyte expression and thereby preventing cell death is advantageous. (3) Your Fort Wayne 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 decreasing Fort Wayne back pain.


What is the best way to integrate curcumin for maximal benefit? Diet and/or supplementation. A curcumin rich diet is written to counteract diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as reduce inflammation. A recent paper 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). To bring 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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows many Fort Wayne chiropractic patients would like the simpler supplementation route which is quite easy and effective. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc will suggest what is right for you and your Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan.
