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 people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked to a varied assortment of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken. Johnson Chiropractic encourages our Richmond chiropractic patients to know and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. Johnson Chiropractic is sure that positive health benefits will result from this effort.

DISEASES LINKED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A widespread vitamin D deficiency is associated with many diseases. The incidence of cancers like lung, pancreatic, colorectal, kidney, breast 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 too. (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) Johnson Chiropractic notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being influenced by vitamin D status too. Richmond chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic benefits Richmond 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 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 equal 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) Johnson Chiropractic sees how these benefits are worth the effort our Richmond chiropractic patients would accept to raise poor vitamin D levels.

HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS

A study of healthy young women revealed that consuming calcium plus vitamin D (1500 IU) by those with less than 20ng/L or 800 IU of vitamin D by patients with levels of more than 20 ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels raise. The rise was seen in the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side observation in this study: It is hard to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study women followed the directions for the 3 months of the study! (6)
