Vitamin D and Chiropractic
Exposure to sun is a natural way for your body to receive Vitamin D. While this can be both relaxing and nourishing to your body, did you know that receiving regular chiropractic adjustments may also improve your body’s ability to receive Vitamin D?
Benefits of Vitamin D
Vitamin D is just as important a vitamin as all those other lettered vitamins you hear about. It has been shown to help:
- Absorb calcium
- Build strong bones and teeth
- Improve immune function
- Promote cardiovascular health and weight loss, in more recent studies
This vitamin can be found in healthy foods such as salmon, tuna canned in water, egg yolks, and cheese. Eating these and other healthy foods not only can help fill your body with Vitamin D but also can help give your body other valuable vitamins and minerals necessary for optimal health. As 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 help us receive Vitamin D, how can chiropractic help too?
The Power of a Healthy Nervous System
Chiropractic care doesn’t treat Vitamin D deficiencies, but a person often can better receive Vitamin D by having a healthy nervous system. The nervous system is the master system of your body. This system controls every organ, muscle, and tissue, including your skin—the largest organ of your body!
When the bones of your spine are out of place, this can put pressure on the nerves that communicate to your skin. As specific chiropractic adjustments are made to your spine, your spinal bones are moved back in place, taking pressure off the nerves traveling to your skin and other organs. Reducing this pressure or interference improves the health of your nervous system. With 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 is able to do its job, your body is then able to properly access and use Vitamin D for your overall health.
Vitamin D and chiropractic care make a winning team. Together, they can help you have a healthier immune system, a healthier working heart, and an overall higher quality of life. Visit with us today to discuss how you can receive the benefits of Vitamin D and chiropractic care!
