An Essential Vitamin We Need To Be Healthy and Pain Free

by Doreen Polizzi on August 21, 2014

As I see the trees budding, lawns turning green and spring flowers starting to bloom, it’s a sure sign that warmer weather is finally here! Spring is the season of new beginnings. After the long, cold winter we had here on Long Island in New York, I am looking forward to getting outdoors to soak up some much needed sunshine and breathe in the fresh air. One of my favorite things to do is to drive to a little beach not too far from where I live, and walk barefoot along the shore line, take in a little sunshine or watch the
sun set. I also enjoy doing a little stretching or few yoga poses at the shore line as I breathe in all life has to offer. For me, it’s the conscious state of being one with the natural elements that surround me that does wonders for my mind, body and spirit. Within a few minutes, I can feel a shift inside me that melts away the stress and tension and eases me into a complete state of relaxation and rejuvenation. I affirm….

More often than not, I hear people say that it is so hard to get out of house. Here’s where you have to challenge your inner Rocky Spirit to take action. Start by taking one small step at a time, open the door and step outside. Challenge yourself to take a walk or even just sit outside and do a little more each day. Before you know it, you will be outside for 15-20 minutes. It really is amazing what a little bit of sunshine and fresh air can do for you.

Many of us unknowingly have low levels of vitamin D. Do you know that there are a number of chronic conditions associated with low levels of vitamin D? Muscle aches, pain and cramps, bone pain, fatigue and depression are among some of the more common conditions associated with low levels of vitamin D.

In addition, low vitamin D levels can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, asthma, hypertension (high blood pressure), type II diabetes, MS (multiple sclerosis), glucose intolerance, as well as breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men. Recent research has shown that obesity can be related to low levels of vitamin D in that it inhibits weight loss no matter hard you try to lose weight and exercise. …who knew? Your doctor can check your vitamin D level with a simple blood test. Get to know where your optimal level of vitamin D should be. If your vitamin D is low, your doctor may suggest a vitamin supplement or you may require prescription strength vitamin D if you are severely deficient. There are nutritional sources for gaining more vitamin D in your diet. Don’t forget that one way to get vitamin D is to go outside and soak up some natural sunlight.

Getting at least 20 minutes of sunlight, is like putting gas into the tank of your car. Vitamin D is made in the skin during sun exposure. By having the proper level of vitamin D, your energy level will improve, pain will ease, and you will begin to feel better. Think of me as your personal cheerleader. – I’m right here for you with my pom-poms in hand cheering you on. I am here to help you to live a more fulfilled, healthier and happy life.
