Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

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 of us worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected to a varied assortment of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Back And Neck Care Center encourages our Severna Park chiropractic patients to know and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Back And Neck Care Center is sure that positive health benefits will follow from this effort.


A widespread 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 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. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the effectiveness of the treatment. (4) Back And Neck Care Center notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be influenced by vitamin D status as well. Severna Park chiropractic care at Back And Neck Care Center benefits Severna Park chiropractic patients with these conditions.


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 level dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3 weeks straight lessens symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Back And Neck Care Center acknowledges how these benefits are worth the work our Severna Park chiropractic patients would accept to elevate low 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 greater than 20 ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels increase. The elevation was seen within the first 30 days of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side observation in this study: It is hard to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106 study women did what they were to do for the 3 months of the study! (6)
