Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

It is a world-wide epidemic: vitamin D deficiency. 14 in every 100 people around the world 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 assortment of diseases. Improving vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic encourages our Montreal chiropractic patients to know and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is certain that positive health benefits will ensure 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 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-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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be affected by vitamin D status too. Montreal chiropractic care at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic benefits Montreal 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 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 equal dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients on day one through day 21 alleviates symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic sees how these benefits are worth the effort our Montreal chiropractic patients would accept to elevate 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 more than 20 ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels increase. The rise was witnessed 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 hard to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study women took the recommended supplements for the 3 months of the study! (6)
