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 study reports that it affects 1 billion of us worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected to a wide range of diseases. Improving vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken. Lakeshore Chiropractic encourages our Two Rivers chiropractic patients to know and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. Lakeshore 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 correlated 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 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) Lakeshore Chiropractic notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being influenced by vitamin D status too. Two Rivers chiropractic care at Lakeshore Chiropractic benefits Two Rivers 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 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 level dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients on day one through day 21 lessens symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Lakeshore Chiropractic sees how these benefits are worth the work our Two Rivers chiropractic patients would undertake to elevate low 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 more than 20 ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels increase. The elevation was seen 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 hard 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 study! (6)
