Las Vegas Chiropractor: Vitamin D and Chiropractic Care
[message_box title=”” color=”green”]
From the Desk of
Dr. Jason Jaeger
Exposure to sun and regular adjustments can increase your Vitamin D. 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?
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
This vitamin can be found in healthy foods such as canned tuna, 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 some sun exposure help us receive Vitamin D, how can chiropractic care at Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine (Aliante IPM) in Las Vegas 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.
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, pressure is taken 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.
Together, Vitamin D and chiropractic care can help you have a healthier immune system, a healthier working heart, and an overall higher quality of life.
