Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide epidemic.. 14%
of the world population has poor
vitamin D levels. (1) One published report states that it
affects 1 billion people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked
to a wide assortment of diseases. Improving
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed.
Malverne Health & Wellness encourages our Malverne chiropractic patients to check
and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels.
Malverne Health & Wellness is confident that positive health benefits
will ensure 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 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) Vitamin D3 supplementation is effective in its care. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test
as to the effectiveness of the treatment. (4) Malverne Health & Wellness
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified
as being influenced by vitamin D status as well. Malverne
chiropractic care at Malverne Health & Wellness benefits Malverne 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) Providing 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) Malverne Health & Wellness acknowledges how
these benefits are worth the effort our Malverne
chiropractic patients would undertake to elevate
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 greater than 20
ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels raise. The elevation was seen
within the first 30 days
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 participants took the recommended
supplements for the three months of the
