If you feel blue in the winter, there could be an easy explanation unrelated to your emotions…. low Vitamin D! Those of us who live in Rochester, blessed with incredible lakes and rolling hills, and 200 days on average of overcast skies… may be more susceptable to Vitamin D deficiency than we realize. Approximately 80-90 percent of the American public is deficient in Vitamin D. Deficiency results in loss of memory, depression, weak muscles, tender bones and frequent infections, to name just a few items. Check with your physician (or dentist) and have your Vitamin D checked. A healthy score from a Functional Medicine perspective (what the body needs to function optimally) is between 60 – 80. Contact us for more information.
