You may have heard our office talk about vitamin D before, in fact you may have heard it several times over the past years. What we’ve noticed over the years is that even though our patients know how important vitamin D is, very few patients are taking it.
We wanted to make it easy for our patients to access a high quality source of vitamin D, so we’ve decided to give it away at our office. During the first few weeks of January, 2019, our office will be giving vitamin D to our patients to not only correct vitamin D deficiency, but also to help protect them from viruses like influenza, bacterial infections like food poisoning, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), brittle bones such as osteoporosis, and increased chronic pain.
To see our full press release regarding this giveaway read below:
Grand Rapids, MI – Locally owned Platinum Chiropractic announced today that it will be giving away vitamin D supplements to their patients. International researchers have concluded that vitamin D deficiency is a serious problem that many people know about but are not taking steps to correct.
Platinum Chiropractic’s goal is to increase vitamin D deficiency awareness and to reduce health problems associated with its deficiency. Problems with low vitamin D levels include: infections by viruses like influenza, bacterial infections like food poisoning, Depression including seasonal affective disorder (SAD), brittle bones such as osteoporosis, and increased chronic pain.
Dr. Hungerford stated “We found that even with knowledge of the deficiency, few patients would buy vitamin D and use it consistently. We wanted to inform our patients on the risks of the deficiency, reduce barriers to obtaining vitamin D, as well as to make it easy to use.”
Each patient will receive a free, easy to use dropper form of vitamin D3. Their gift will also contain instructions with adult and child dosing, and a reminder to take the vitamin once a day with food to ensure absorption.
