a world-wide epidemic: vitamin D deficiency. 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
