a world-wide epidemic: vitamin D deficiency. 14 in every 100 people around the world has poor
vitamin D levels. (1) One published report states that it
affects 1 billion people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked
to a wide range of diseases. Improving
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed.
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation encourages our Tonawanda chiropractic patients to check
and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels.
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is confident that positive health benefits
will ensure from this effort.
DISEASES LINKED 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 as well.
(1, 2, 3) Vitamin D participates importantly 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) It responds well to vitamin
D3 supplementation. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test
as to the success of the treatment. (4) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be influenced by vitamin D status as well. Tonawanda
chiropractic care at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation benefits Tonawanda chiropractic
patients with these conditions.
BENEFITS OF IMPROVING VITAMIN D LEVELS
Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D
is shown to improve the antidepressive effect. Researchers propose
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 same
dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients on day one through day 21 alleviates
symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation acknowledges how
these benefits are worth the effort our Tonawanda
chiropractic patients would take on to raise
poor vitamin D levels.
HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS
A study of healthy young women revealed that consuming
calcium plus vitamin D (1500 IU) by those with less than 20ng/L or 800 IU of
vitamin D by those with levels of more than 20
ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels raise. The elevation 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 took the recommended
supplements for the three months of the
