Vitamin D and Chiropractic = A Winning Team

Benefits of Vitamin D

Vitamin D is just as important as all those other lettered vitamins that you hear about. Vitamin D has been shown to help:

  • Improve immune function
  • Build strong bones and teeth
  • Absorb calcium
  • Promote cardiovascular health and weight loss, in more recent studies

Vitamin D can be found in many healthy foods such as egg yolks, cheese, milk, salmon, and tuna canned in water. Eating these foods along with other healthy foods will help to fill your body with Vitamin D but it will also assist in giving your body other valuable minerals and vitamins that are necessary for optimal health. While the sun hits your skin, your skin produces the Vitamin D that your body uses to keep you healthy.

So, if eating healthy and soaking up the sun will help us to receive Vitamin D, how could chiropractic help too?

The Power of a Healthy Nervous System

Chiropractic care won’t treat Vitamin D deficiencies, but when a person has a healthy nervous system, they can often better receive Vitamin D. The nervous system is the master system of your body. It controls every organ, muscle, and tissue, including your skin; it’s the largest organ of your body!

When your spine is out of place, pressure is put on to the nerves that communicate to your skin. With a chiropractic adjustment customized to your spine, your spinal bones are moved back in to place, which will take pressure off the nerves traveling to your skin and other organs. Reducing this pressure or interference will improve the health of your nervous system. When you have a healthy nervous system, your skin is better able to send sensory information to the brain to help the body know how to properly function. When your skin can do its job, your body is then able to properly access and utilize Vitamin D for your overall health.
