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 wide range of diseases. Bettering
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken.
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic encourages our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients to check
and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels.
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is confident 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 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 too.
(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-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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be influenced by vitamin D status as well. Fort Wayne
chiropractic care at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic benefits Fort Wayne 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 suggest
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 equal
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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic sees how
these benefits are worth the work our Fort Wayne
chiropractic patients would undertake to elevate
poor vitamin D levels.
HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS
A study of healthy young women showed 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 raise. The elevation 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’s hard
to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106
study participants followed the directions for the three months of the
