Inflammation Medication

Short-term Relief from inflammation

 

      Anti-inflammatory Meds (Bad Choices)

 

         Statins, NSAIDS (aspirin), prednisone /corticosteroids (can cause osteoporosis, cataracts, diabetes, Cushings syndrome)

 

 

      Herbal choices for short-term anti-inflammatory symptomatic relief

 

-       Boswellia Serrata

 

-       Turmeric/Curcumin

 

         Curcumin is the main curcuminoid found in the rhyzome of turmeric (Curcuma longa), a popular Indian spice and a member of the ginger family (Zingiberaceae); curcumonoids are natural phenols responsible for turmeric’s yellow color;

 

         Curcuminoids inhibit enzymes which participate in the synthesis of inflammatory prostaglandins and leukotrienes (locally operating communication messengers derived from polyunsaturated fats) - the anti-inflammatory effect of curcumnoids has been found comparable to steroidal drugs, and such nonsteroidal drugs as indomethacin and phenylbutazone, but without the negative side-effects;

 

         Turmeric seen to kill H. Pylori -  suspected of being the microbe responsible for hijacking cells and turning them cancerous 

 

         Heating curcumin destroys many of its beneficial properties

 

         Desired turmeric extract supplement properties – 100% organic, at least 95% curcuminoids

 

 

-       Cinnamon - active ingredient methylhydroxychalcone polymer (MHCP) was identified as the substance  lowering the probability of getting type 2 diabetes in those eating apple pies.

 Dr. Richard A. Anderson, at the Human Nutrition Research Center (USDA)

 

         Having similar effects as INSULIN,  MHCP stimulates glucose uptake and aids glycogen (storage form of glucose) synthesis – both helpful in blood sugar metabolism:

 

-       Ginger

 

-       Bromelain - family of proteolytic enzymes commonly used for treating soft tissue injuries and treating inflammation

·   Reduces swelling / pain;

·   Increases fibrinolysis (promotes  plasminogen à plasmin)

Taussig SJ, Batkin S. Bromelain, the enzyme complex of pineapple (Ananas comosus) and its clinical application. An update. J Ethnopharmacol 1988;22:191-203.

Recommended Dose: 500 -2000 mg/day (with enzymatic activity of at least 2,000 mcu/g)

 

 

      Polyphenolic bioflavonoids (powerful antioxidants)

 

 

-       Resveratol

 

-       Quercetin – flavonol found in fruits, vegetables, leaves and grains

 

-       Epicatechin – found in the unprocessed cocoa component of dark chocolate

 

Dark chocolate – “Anti-inflammatory / Antidepressant”

 

      Manuka Honey – antioxidant content to counter oxidant activity may account for its anti-inflammatory activity; also it is able to prevent the feedback amplification of inflammation via hydrogen peroxide.
