A recent study has found that diet rich in turmeric and omega-3 fatty acid DHA can restore damaged tissues and can help in improving the abilities of walking. The diet is believed to be good for spinal cord injuries. However, the diet has not yet been tested over human. When given to rats with spinal cord injuries, the diet did help them in recovering at fast pace.
The findings of the study have been published in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine. The lead author of the study, Dr. Langston Holly, said, "Normal ageing often narrows the spinal canal, putting pressure on the spinal cord and injuring tissue".
Surgery can help patients suffering with spinal cord. However, improvement in diet can repair the damaged issues effectively. For the study, the researchers examined two groups of rats affected with cervical myelopathy.
The study was conducted by the researchers of University of California. It has been informed that patients affected with cervical myelopathy finds it difficult to walk and experiences pain in neck, arm and hand.
People above the age group of 55 often become victim of cervical myelopathy. It is hoped that the findings of the study would help in easing up the life of cervical myelopathy's patients.
