Chronic inflammation is a problem that can be found at the cellular level. Chronic autoimmune conditions like arthritis, CIDP neuropathy and ulcerative colitis are all chronic inflammatory diseases. People whose bodies are under chronic inflammation are more likely to develop cancer in their life-times.
Some people may not be familiar with coriander seeds but they are the seeds that eventually grow into cilantro leaves. Coriander has many benefits such as vitamins A, K and C as well as containing potassium and zinc. The seeds contain oils that are known to be anti-inflammatory as well as anti-bacterial and anti-carcinogenic.
The presence of potassium and vitamin C are powerful ingredients in the battle against inflammation. In our previous article, we saw how vitamin C can help treat autoimmune disorders like CIDP neuropathy. Similarly, we saw how low potassium can also contribute to the development of CIDP. Finally, we have also seen how vitamin K, as present in Kale, can help fight inflammation in the body and thus be beneficial to people who suffer from CIDP neuropathy. As such, coriander seeds have multiple properties that can work together and may help you with your CIDP.
According to research, coriander is most powerful in its oil form as that is where most of its anti-inflammatory properties are concentrated in.
Remember, herbal remedies are not cures or alternatives to conventional medication. If you are interested in consuming coriander seeds to help treat your CIDP neuropathy, please consult with your doctor.
