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 linked
to a wide assortment of diseases. Improving
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed.
Layden Chiropractic encourages our Plainville chiropractic patients to know
and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels.
Layden 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 associated
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 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) Layden Chiropractic
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be affected by vitamin D status as well. Plainville
chiropractic care at Layden Chiropractic benefits Plainville 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 propose
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 for 3
weeks straight eases
symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Layden Chiropractic sees how
these benefits are worth the work our Plainville
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 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 increase. The rise was witnessed
within the first 30 days
of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side observation in this study: It’s hard
to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106
study participants followed the directions for the 3 months of the
