Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide epidemic.. 14%
of the world population has poor
vitamin D levels. (1) One published report states that it
affects 1 billion people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected
to a wide assortment of diseases. Improving
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken.
Wilson Family Chiropractic encourages our Millville chiropractic patients to know
and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels.
Wilson Family Chiropractic is confident that positive health benefits
will ensure from this effort.
DISEASES RELATED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS
A rampant vitamin D deficiency is correlated
with many diseases. The incidence of cancers like breast, colorectal, kidney, lung, and pancreatic
is associated with low vitamin D levels. Diabetes, rickets, rheumatic
arthritis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer diseases, benign paroxysmal positional
vertigo, osteomalacia, osteoporosis, and fractures in adults are too.
(1, 2, 3) Vitamin D plays a key role in calcium
homeostasis, skeletal metabolism, and the function of immune, cardiovascular
and reproductive systems. (2) Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is also research-related
to vitamin D status and bone mineral density. (3) Vitamin D3 supplementation is effective in its care. Testing
for the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test
as to the success of the treatment. (4) Wilson Family Chiropractic
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified
as being influenced by vitamin D status too. Millville
chiropractic care at Wilson Family Chiropractic benefits Millville chiropractic
patients with these conditions.
BENEFITS OF IMPROVING VITAMIN D LEVELS
Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D
is documented to improve the antidepressive effect. Researchers suggest
that vitamin D may be beneficial for other such conditions beyond just
depression like schizophrenia, cognitive disturbances, attention deficit
disorder, and autism. (1) Giving a daily equal
dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3
weeks straight eases
symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Wilson Family Chiropractic acknowledges how
these benefits are worth the work our Millville
chiropractic patients would accept to raise
poor vitamin D levels.
HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS
A study of healthy young women showed that consuming
calcium plus vitamin D (1500 IU) by those with less than 20ng/L or 800 IU of
vitamin D by patients with levels of greater than 20
ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels increase. The rise was witnessed
in the first month
of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side finding in this study: It’s difficult
to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106
study participants followed the directions for the 3 months of the
