Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide epidemic.. 14 in every 100 people around the world has poor vitamin D levels. (1) One study reports that it affects 1 billion people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected to a varied assortment of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Spinal Care Clinic encourages our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients to check and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. Spinal Care Clinic is sure that positive health benefits will follow from this effort.

DISEASES LINKED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A widespread vitamin D deficiency is associated with many diseases. The incidence of cancers like breast, colorectal, kidney, lung, and pancreatic is related to 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 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 effectiveness of the treatment. (4) Spinal Care Clinic notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being affected by vitamin D status too. Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care at Spinal Care Clinic benefits Burlington and Hamilton 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 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 equal dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3 weeks straight lessens symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Spinal Care Clinic sees how these benefits are worth the effort our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients would accept to elevate 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 those with levels of greater than 20 ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels increase. The elevation was witnessed as early as the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side observation in this study: It’s difficult to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study participants followed the directions for the three months of the study! (6)
