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 of us worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected
to a varied range of diseases. Bettering
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken.
Innate Wisdom encourages our New York City chiropractic patients to know
and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels.
Innate Wisdom is sure that positive health benefits
will result from this effort.
DISEASES RELATED 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 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) It responds well to vitamin
D3 supplementation. Testing
for the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test
as to the success of the treatment. (4) Innate Wisdom
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be affected by vitamin D status too. New York City
chiropractic care at Innate Wisdom benefits New York City 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 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 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) Innate Wisdom acknowledges how
these benefits are worth the work our New York City
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 greater than 20
ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels increase. The elevation was witnessed
as early as the first month
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 women followed the directions for the 3 months of the
