Vitamin D Deficiencies are common and linked with…
- cancers like prostate cancer and worsened cancer outcomes in general
mood disorders like depression and schizophrenia
May worsen autoimmune processes like MS, and psoriatic arthritis and neuromuscular disorder Parkinson’s
Weakened immune system and chronic respiratory infections and risk of getting the flu
bone weakening - osteopenia or osteoporosis because of its delicate interplay with calcium and magnesium
With ALL these benefits...
How could supplementing a deficiency in Vitamin D be harmful?
Vitamin D is intimately linked with other minerals in the body but particularly Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium! Vitamin D pulls calcium into the blood and could cause hypercalcemia and possibly high calcium in the urine leading to kidney stones. In addition if there is an imbalance in the other minerals, too much vitamin D supplementation could cause the body to pull too much calcium out of the bones thereby weakening the bones leading to osteopenia or osteoporosis and life threatening fractures in the elderly.
But even more common and important….
IF YOU HAVE AN UNDERLYING MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCY, SUPPLEMENTING WITH VITAMIN D WILL FURTHER DEPLETE YOUR MAGNESIUM LEVELS!
SYMPTOMS OF MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCY (not exhaustive)
High blood pressure (eclampsia/pre-eclampsia)
Anxiety and panic attacks
Restless leg syndrome
Brain fog, ADD/ADHD
Vitamin D def (not a symptom but an underlying cause of low vit D levels)
Heart rhythm issues
Muscle cramps or facial twitches
Food cravings (sugar, carbs)
PMS - especially painful cramps and heavy bleeding
Who doesn’t see themselves in a few of those symptoms?
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU ARE DEFICIENT?
Ask your doctor to run a Magnesium RBC level or go to requestatest.com and order it yourself for about $50.
If you are <6 you are deficient and could benefit from supplementation
We run an ION test on most patients that consists of an organic acids test with intracellular mineral levels, heavy metals, and fatty acid ratios. Almost everyone we check is low in Magnesium.
WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE DEFICIENT IN MAGNESIUM?
2 Main Reasons
Our foods are depleted of nutrients because we don’t farm well anymore
Stress burns magnesium and almost everyone is following our culture of over-taxing our bodies, not sleeping enough, poor diets, financial stress, and not taking time to rest and get outside
HOW DO YOU REPLENISH INTRACELLULAR MAGNESIUM LEVELS?
Oral or transdermal magnesium or a combination of both (preferred).
