Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

It’s a world-wide epidemic: vitamin D deficiency. 14 in every 100 people around the world has poor vitamin D levels. (1) One study reports that it affects 1 billion of us worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked to a varied assortment of diseases. Raising vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken. Satterwhite Chiropractic encourages our Oxford chiropractic patients to know and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Satterwhite 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 lung, pancreatic, colorectal, kidney, breast 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 plays a key role in calcium homeostasis, skeletal metabolism, and the function of immune, cardiovascular and reproductive systems. (2) Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is also research-connected 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) Satterwhite Chiropractic notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be influenced by vitamin D status as well. Oxford chiropractic care at Satterwhite Chiropractic benefits Oxford chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF RAISING VITAMIN D LEVELS

Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D is shown 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 alleviates symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Satterwhite Chiropractic sees how these benefits are worth the effort our Oxford chiropractic patients would accept to elevate low 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 saw their vitamin D levels raise. The rise was seen within the first 30 days 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 participants followed the directions for the 3 months of the study! (6)
