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 published report states that it affects 1 billion people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected to a wide assortment of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre encourages our Toronto chiropractic patients to know and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is sure that positive health benefits will follow 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 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-connected 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 effectiveness of the treatment. (4) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be affected by vitamin D status too. Toronto chiropractic care at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre benefits Toronto 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 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 on day one through day 21 lessens symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre sees how these benefits are worth the work our Toronto chiropractic patients would accept to raise 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 greater than 20 ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels raise. The rise was witnessed in the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side observation in this study: It’s difficult to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106 study participants did what they were to do for the three months of the study! (6)
