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 of us worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked
to a varied assortment of diseases. Bettering
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed.
The Novelli Wellness Center encourages our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients to check
and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels.
The Novelli Wellness Center is sure that positive health benefits
will result 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 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-connected
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 effectiveness of the treatment. (4) The Novelli Wellness Center
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified
as being affected by vitamin D status as well. Buffalo, NY
chiropractic care at The Novelli Wellness Center benefits Buffalo, NY 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 equal
dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3
weeks straight alleviates
symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) The Novelli Wellness Center acknowledges how
these benefits are worth the effort our Buffalo, NY
chiropractic patients would take on to elevate
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 raise. The elevation was seen
as early as the first month
of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An
interesting side observation in this study: It’s difficult
to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106
study women followed the directions for the 3 months of the
