Mechanistic Role of Vitamin D Deficiency in Mood Disorders, Anxiety, and Depression
The medical profession’s failure to address this problem is clinical and ethical malpractice (nutritional neglect) that results in needless suffering and billions of dollars in avoidable expenses.
We know that vitamin D deficiency promotes chronic pain, pain chronification, and pain amplification by several different mechanisms, and that vitamin D supplementation reverses these pathologies. I covered all of that information in Part 1.
Here in Part 2, I detail the high frequency of vitamin D deficiency in various international communities, the ways that vitamin D deficiency contributes to mood disorders, anxiety and depression, and how to diagnose and treat this problem. Video no3 in this series details the role of vitamin D in supporting external barrier defenses.
Given the high frequency of vitamin D deficiency in the general population and its clear causation in mood disorders, anxiety and depression, the medical profession’s failure to address this problem is clinical and ethical malpractice (nutritional neglect) that results in needless suffering and billions of dollars/euros in avoidable healthcare expenses for hundreds of millions of people.
