Spices add flavour and zest to our food. Many of these delicious seasonings — such as the traditional curry spice, turmeric — also contain a number of healing properties.
Dr. Smith encourages patients to “spice up their lives” with these all-natural ingredients as part of the chiropractic lifestyle: one that encourages disease prevention and discourages masking symptoms with drugs (many of which have serious side effects).
Researchers are studying how turmeric may be used in fighting the following diseases and conditions:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Liver Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
Cellular inflammation is associated with a host of condition, including heart disease and colorectal cancer. Inflammation is also linked with low-back pain.
In order to educate patients about all-natural ways to ward off inflammation, such as exercise, stress reduction and nutrition, Dr. Smith works diligently to remain up-to-date with late-breaking research. When new research is released that may help patients stave off inflammation — such as the current explosion of research on turmeric — Dr. Smith commits to sharing that information with patients and the community.
