HELP FOR Sitka 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 decreased levels of inflammatory agents,
interleukin-6 and nitric oxide. Cinnamon also reduced
the frequency, severity and duration of migraine episodes.
Cinnamon helped migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe. (1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka gladly shares
research-based safe options to try for health.
Blood pressure is a common health condition
for many Sitka folks. Supplementing with cinnamon positively and significantly affected
diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly
affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Several reports
have reported that cinnamon reduced blood pressure. A new
meta-analysis of 9 randomized clinical trials reported that cinnamon
supplementation can boost blood pressure by a modest degree
overall. Significant reductions in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure reduced
when taking 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least eight
weeks. (3) That’s news worth sharing with our
Sitka chiropractic patients.
DIABETES TYPE II
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka takes care of many patients
who also are diagnosed with 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 added to the
management. Cinnamon is cited as an advantageous choice for diabetic hypertensive patients. (4) A
survey of the use of complementary alternative medicine by diabetic patients revealed
that many use bitter apple, ginger, fenugreek, garlic and cinnamon. 66.1% consumed
cinnamon. (5) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka wants to know what our
chiropractic patients are using and if they find benefit.
