A Note From Dr. Dave - February 6, 2016
“The World’s Single Deadliest Vitamin Deficiency”
“An estimated 85% of people in the U.S. are Vitamin D Deficient and Many Scientists and Researchers Consider This an Unrecognized Global Epidemic - Dr. Joseph Mercola”
As we make our way through the winter months in New Hampshire I think we can all agree that we are craving the warmth of the sun. Vitamin D deficiencies have been linked to many debilitating and life threatening illnesses; cancer, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, dementia just to name a few. While this deficiency is thought to be caused by insufficient sun exposure it can also be linked to a poor diet. Vitamin D plays many important roles in our wellbeing. Without the proper levels of Vitamin D our immune system would be unable to fight of infections.
Another important role for Vitamin D is bone strength. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, vitamin D is essential for “formation, growth, and repair of bones and for normal calcium absorption and immune function.” It has been said that a Vitamin D deficiency in your older years could lead to osteoporosis.
The best way to get Vitamin D is from sunlight. Our bodies are actually designed to get all the Vitamin D we need from exposure to the sun. Vitamin D can also be obtained eating wild salmon, tuna, milk, egg yolk, yogurt and orange juice or by taking fish oil. Realistically it is impossible to get enough Vitamin D from food, for example it would take 10 glasses of milk daily to get enough Vitamin D.
As a chiropractor I see patients on a daily basis with lower back pain and other chronic illnesses, we work to correct the ailment and find the source of your pain. Although I can adjust you and help alleviate your pain, you need to eat the proper nutrition, exercise daily and avoid anything that would negatively affect your health.
Best in health - Dave
