Vitamin D & Sunlight

Posted by Dr. Daniel Han On February - 11 - 2011

We hear about suicides, overdoses, and other fatal incidents in the news being caused by depression. According to the The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 130 million people spend over 1 billion dollars because of depression. It’s easy for a depressed patients to resort to smoking, overdosing, and/or other physically unhealthy habits causing heart, vessel problems, chronic diseases, obesity and/or other health problems.

According to the International Archives of Medicine, majority of depressed people are lacking Vitamin D. Another researcher says dementia patients also lack vitamin D and based on a research by a South Korean Nutrition Center, 72.7% of High School Boys, 78.7% of High School Girls, 72.2% of College Boys and 86.5% of College Girls do as well. In Korea, nationwide, 47.3% Males and 64.5% of Females are below the Daily Value. This says that vitamin D is related to the brain’s functions. From a chiropractic point of view, I suggest to everyone to get some sunlight for at least 15 minutes a day, because even if you take vitamin D supplements, your body wouldn’t be able to use it without ultraviolet (sunlight). So not only your face, but any part of your body with skin such as your arms, legs, and such should be exposed to sunlight as well because the parts of your body that is exposed to sunlight creates vitamin D throughout your body. To those who find it hard to see sunlight, using a sunlight lamp is also very efficient.
