As you know my autoimmune journey left me paralyzed in 2006....but only for a year. The rates of autoimmune issues are growing!. Still with me? Did I say, I am here for you?
Do you use sunscreen?
If you do, then take a look at the SPF.
Is it greater than 8 or 9? Then you will not absorb the Vitamin D from the sun. You will block it out! Oh no!
I suggest 20-30 minutes in the sun minimal sunscreen depending on your complexion to absorb Vitamin D. However, if you'r not out in the sun....then you need to supplement it.
Here's something to help you start your immune engines...no matter what choices are made. You can order a Vitamin D lab test. Call the office if you need assistance.
Yes, Vitamin D brands do matter.
Here are some facts for you to share with family and friends.
Dr. Aristotle's Vitamin D Update!
What’s your risk for decreased Vitamin D?
Both vitamin D and K are essential for optimal bone and arterial health and for maintaining proper immune balance. A large proportion of the US population is very deficient in vitamins D and K, emphasizing the importance of adequate supplementation of these critical vitamins.Vitamin K was specifically added to this formula to help keep the important bone protein osteocalcin, carboxylated. Undercarboxylated osteocalcin cannot regulate calcium, causing it to freely circulate in the bloodstream, and potentially be deposited in the soft tissues such as arterial walls or kidneys.
Why Vitamin D?
• Heart health
• Immune support
• Healthy teeth
• Mood disorders
• Helping reduce cancer risk, or for support during cancer treatment
• UV protection
• Long-term vitamin D supplementation
• Children, the elderly, and anyone who has difficulty swallowing pills
Dr. Aristotle Economou
Dr. Aristotle understands the difficulties patients go through when dealing with a personal health challenge. In 2006, an event occurred that turned his life upside down and put his years of clinical experience in wellness healthcare to the ultimate test. Over a short period, the muscles in Aristotle’s body unexpectedly became paralyzed with only the ability to slightly move his hands at the wrists and blink his eyes.
Aristotle ended up in an intensive care unit (ICU), followed by a 72-day stay in a local hospital. He was told he may never walk again. Throughout the year, his healing journey continued while confined to an electric wheelchair and requiring around-the-clock care.
With help and determination, Aristotle combined modalities from Functional Medicine, Eastern Medicine and unique techniques in Chiropractic and Tui Na. This resulted in the ability to rebuild his body mind and spirit, which was the foundation to his miraculous recovery including the ability to walk again.
Aristotle then wrote the book, Change the Way You Heal: 7 Steps To Highly Effective Healing. No matter how big or small your health problem, this inspirational book shows you how to maximize your healing abilities and resources using the same methods he implemented in his own recovery.
