HELP FOR Baton Rouge MIGRAINE
The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of cinnamon were put to the
test for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache
type, has increased levels of inflammation. Compared to a control treatment,
cinnamon significantly reduced levels of inflammatory agents,
interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also reduced
the frequency, severity and duration of migraine attacks.
Cinnamon eased migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe. (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center happily presents
research-based safe alternatives to try for health.
Blood pressure is a common health condition
for many Baton Rouge folks. Supplementing with cinnamon favorably and significantly affected
diastolic blood pressure and significantly affected systolic blood pressure
when taken for at least 8 weeks. (2) Several reports
have stated that cinnamon reduced blood pressure. A recent
meta-analysis of 9 randomized clinical trials reported that cinnamon
supplementation can improve blood pressure by a modest degree
overall. Significant reductions in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased
when using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8
weeks. (3) That is news worth sharing with our
Baton Rouge chiropractic patients.
DIABETES TYPE II
Spine & Sports Rehab Center cares for many patients
who also have diabetes type II. Diabetes
mellitus is a disease encompassing a variety of
different issues related to insulin resistance or low
production of it by the pancreas. This all gives rise to lifelong damage to organs over a lifetime.
Management is complex. Herbs are frequently included in the
management. Cinnamon is mentioned as a
favorable choice for diabetic hypertensive patients. (4) A
survey of the use of complementary alternative medicine by diabetic patients found
that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% consumed
cinnamon. (5) Spine & Sports Rehab Center wants to know what our
chiropractic patients are taking and if they find benefit.
