I am Dr. Cynthia Seaman, the chiropractor and owner of the Seaman Chiropractic Center in Chicagoland. In my chiropractic practice there are many patients who find winter is a time of low energy, depression and an increased incidence of flu and colds. Vitamin D is a very versatile nutrient. I am a Chicago chiropractor who offers nutritional guidance as an integral part of wellness care for my patients.
Vitamin D for some time has been used to increase calcium and aid in bone growth. Increasing data has given Vitamin D recognition in relieving:
1) cardiovascular disease
2) skin disorders
3) peripheral neuropathy, ( arm and leg pain),
4) poly cystic ovarian syndrome
5) immune support(especially auto-immune and cancer)
Currently there is information regarding Vitamin D and the brain. Low levels of Vitamin D are associated with increased risk of
7) risk factors for dementia (cardiovasculardisease, diabetes, osteoporosis and periodontal disease).
In a study of 318 elderly participants, Vitamin D insufficiency and deficiency was associated with:
8) Alzheimer disease
10) MRI indicators of cerebrovascular disease.
Scientific evidence suggests Vitamin D contributes to the improvement of human health in humans that is even more critical in pregnancy. It is critical for:
11) fetal brain development
12) increased immunity.
Vitamin D is both a vitamin and a hormone. Supplementation should be with active D3, 15 minutes of sun exposure three times a week and 10,000 i.u. is a good dosage to maintain.
