Vitamin Vitality

This month’s article keys on how our environment really helps us from the inside out. Vitamin D, supplementation, and sunlight all help keep us strong, healthy and well-balanced. Adding chiropractic to that awesome lineup is a safe and solid way to stay healthy and grow well. Ask our office about the many safe and effective supplements (including Vitamin D and more!) we offer based on your individual needs and goals.

Let the Sun Shine In
For example, recent research shows that low Vitamin D levels are related to increased risk for diabetes, and lack of Vitamin D during pregnancy can lead to gestational diabetes as well as pre-eclampsia. Links between low Vitamin D levels and development of cancer have been studied for many years. Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with mild depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and stroke, as well as with peripheral neuropathy and lupus. It has a huge impact on almost every aspect of our physical health. It makes sense for everyone to ensure they are getting enough Vitamin D on a daily basis.

How does one get enough Vitamin D? The best source of this powerful vitamin is sunlight.

Our modern lifestyle causes us to stay indoors, far away from the healthful rays of the sun. True, the sun’s rays aren’t that healthful anymore because of pollution and degradation of the ozone layer. But that shouldn’t keep us indoors!

To balance this concern and meet the daily requirement for Vitamin D, most studies recommend getting 15 to 30 minutes of unprotected sunlight several times per week.

In addition to sunlight, it is important to develop sound life-sustaining nutritional habits. However, an often overlooked and misunderstood aspect of wellness care is the necessity of chiropractic care. The truth is chiropractic care is an essential ingredient of any focused wellness program.

A healthy diet combined with vitamin supplementation is a very good beginning. Adding chiropractic care makes all those efforts pay off. Chiropractic care helps your body make good use of what you’re putting into it by restoring and maintaining the alignment and function of your spine, chiropractic care can re-establish and maintain the neurological connections between your brain and your body, and then you can resume functioning in the manner your body was designed to.
