a world-wide epidemic: low vitamin D levels. 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 connected
to a varied range of diseases. Improving
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken.
Mandeville Chiropractic encourages our Mandeville chiropractic patients to know
and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels.
Mandeville Chiropractic 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 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 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. Testing
for the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test
as to the success of the treatment. (4) Mandeville Chiropractic
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified
as being affected by vitamin D status too. Mandeville
chiropractic care at Mandeville Chiropractic benefits Mandeville chiropractic
patients with these conditions.
BENEFITS OF IMPROVING VITAMIN D LEVELS
Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D
is shown 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) Giving a daily same
dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3
weeks straight eases
symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Mandeville Chiropractic acknowledges how
these benefits are worth the work our Mandeville
chiropractic patients would accept to elevate
low vitamin D levels.
HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS
A study of healthy young women revealed that taking
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 witnessed their vitamin D levels raise. The elevation was witnessed
in 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 participants followed the directions for the 3 months of the
