a world-wide epidemic: low vitamin D levels. 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 linked
to a varied assortment of diseases. Raising
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed.
Most Chiropractic Clinic encourages our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients to know
and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels.
Most Chiropractic Clinic is sure that positive health benefits
will follow from this effort.
DISEASES RELATED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS
A widespread vitamin D deficiency is associated
with many diseases. The incidence of cancers like lung, pancreatic,
colorectal, kidney, breast
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 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. Testing
for the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test
as to the effectiveness of the treatment. (4) Most Chiropractic Clinic
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified
as being influenced by vitamin D status too. Murfreesboro
chiropractic care at Most Chiropractic Clinic benefits Murfreesboro chiropractic
patients with these conditions.
BENEFITS OF RAISING VITAMIN D LEVELS
Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D
is shown 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 same
dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients on day one through day 21 eases
symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Most Chiropractic Clinic sees how
these benefits are worth the effort our Murfreesboro
chiropractic patients would undertake 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 those with levels of greater than 20
ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels increase. The rise was seen
in the first month
of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An
interesting side finding in this study: It’s difficult
to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106
study women took the recommended
supplements for the 3 months of the
