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 people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected
to a wide assortment of diseases. Improving
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed.
Tarrytown Chiropractic encourages our Tarrytown chiropractic patients to know
and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels.
Tarrytown Chiropractic is certain that positive health benefits
will result from this effort.
DISEASES LINKED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS
A rampant vitamin D deficiency is correlated
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 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. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test
as to the success of the treatment. (4) Tarrytown Chiropractic
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified
as being influenced by vitamin D status as well. Tarrytown
chiropractic care at Tarrytown Chiropractic benefits Tarrytown 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 same
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) Tarrytown Chiropractic sees how
these benefits are worth the effort our Tarrytown
chiropractic patients would take on to raise
poor vitamin D levels.
HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS
A study of healthy young women showed that consuming
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
as early as the first month
of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An
interesting side finding in this study: It is difficult
to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106
study women took the recommended
supplements for the 3 months of the
