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 people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked
to a varied range of diseases. Bettering
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed.
McMurray Chiropractic Solutions encourages our San Jose chiropractic patients to know
and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels.
McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is confident that positive health benefits
will ensure from this effort.
DISEASES LINKED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS
A widespread vitamin D deficiency is associated
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 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. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test
as to the effectiveness of the treatment. (4) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be affected by vitamin D status as well. San Jose
chiropractic care at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions benefits San Jose 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 level
dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3
weeks straight eases
symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions acknowledges how
these benefits are worth the work our San Jose
chiropractic patients would take on to raise
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 patients with levels of more than 20
ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels raise. The elevation was witnessed
within the first 30 days
of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An
interesting side observation 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
