Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

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 range of diseases. Raising vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Moses Chiropractic encourages our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to check and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Moses Chiropractic is certain 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 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 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) It responds well to vitamin D3 supplementation. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the effectiveness of the treatment. (4) Moses Chiropractic notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be affected by vitamin D status as well. West Palm Beach chiropractic care at Moses Chiropractic benefits West Palm Beach chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF RAISING 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) Providing a daily level dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3 weeks straight eases symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Moses Chiropractic sees how these benefits are worth the effort our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients would accept to raise poor vitamin D levels.

HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS

A study of healthy young women revealed that taking 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 witnessed within the first 30 days 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 recommended! Only 67 of the 106 study women did what they were to do for the three months of the study!
