HELP FOR Easley MIGRAINE
Cinnamon’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties were tested for migraine management. Migraine, the most common primary headache type, has higher 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 helped migraine in this study! As far as cinnamon goes, it’s safe.

Blood pressure is a familiar health issue for many Easley folks. Cinnamon supplementation positively and significantly affected diastolic blood pressure and when taken for more than 8 weeks significantly affected systolic blood pressure. (2) Quite a few studies have reported that cinnamon reduced blood pressure. A recent 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 using 2 grams or more a day of cinnamon for at least 8 weeks. (3) That is news worth giving to our Easley chiropractic patients.
DIABETES TYPE II
Young Chiropractic cares for many patients who also have diabetes type II. Diabetes mellitus is a disease encompassing a variety of different issues associated with insulin resistance or low production of it by the pancreas. This all brings about lifelong damage to organs over a lifetime. Management is complex. Herbs are frequently added to the management. Cinnamon is cited 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.
