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 people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected
to a wide assortment of diseases. Improving
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed.
Pflugerville Wellness Center encourages our Pflugerville chiropractic patients to know
and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels.
Pflugerville Wellness Center is certain that positive health benefits
will ensure from this effort.
DISEASES LINKED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS
A rampant 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 success of the treatment. (4) Pflugerville Wellness Center
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified
as being affected by vitamin D status as well. Pflugerville
chiropractic care at Pflugerville Wellness Center benefits Pflugerville 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 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 on day one through day 21 eases
symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Pflugerville Wellness Center sees how
these benefits are worth the effort our Pflugerville
chiropractic patients would undertake to raise
low 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 those with levels of more than 20
ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels increase. The elevation was seen
in the first month
of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An
interesting side observation in this study: It’s hard
to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106
study women followed the directions for the three months of the
