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 published report states that it affects 1 billion of us worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected to a varied assortment of diseases. Raising vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation encourages our Carrolltown chiropractic patients to check and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is certain that positive health benefits will ensure from this effort.

DISEASES RELATED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A rampant 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 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) 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being influenced by vitamin D status as well. Carrolltown chiropractic care at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation benefits Carrolltown 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 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 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation acknowledges how these benefits are worth the effort our Carrolltown chiropractic patients would take on 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 raise. The elevation was seen in the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An interesting side observation in this study: It’s difficult to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study participants did what they were to do for the three months of the study!
