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 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) Providing a daily level
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) 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
