UAE one of the world’s highest in Vitamin D deficiency

Vitamin D Deficiency Treatment

When talking about Vitamin deficiencies, people would always resort to loading up vitamin supplements presuming it is the utmost solution to it. However, supplements will only overwhelm the liver being an eliminating organ. On the other hand, NAET offers a non-invasive and medicine-free Vitamin D Deficiency Treatment which is totally natural and safe.

Never Felt Better Until NAET

”I always had complaints of restlessness whenever exposed to the sun. I also had those canker sores in my mouth after having a walk under the sun. Thankfully, I was able to have a consultation with a NAET practitioner. That was when I came to know I was highly allergic to vitamins A, C, D, and Calcium. After treating for vitamins A, C, and Calcium, my symptoms were reduced dramatically, but not completely. Finally, when I was treated for vitamin D, I began to feel comfortable under the sun. I also stopped having canker sores in my mouth.”

Abu Dhabi: Over 85 percent of UAE residents suffer from Vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency and the condition seems to be more prevalent during the summer season, an expert has said.

Healthcare Specialist Dr. Afrozul Haq said the UAE has one of the world’s highest amounts of Vitamin D deficiency, one of the most common preventable disorders. According to his research, only 17 percent of the UAE’s residents were found to have sufficient levels of the vitamin.

“Pollution could play a role as could the lifestyle choices of the country’s residents including the lack of outdoor activity. Women in the UAE have even lower levels of Vitamin D due to religious and cultural reasons — there is a heavy use of abayas and burqas,” he added.

Vitamin D is vital for delaying the onset of osteoporosis and the regulating of the immune and nervous system and addition to having benefits for preventing cancer.

What is Vitamin D?

Vitamin D Deficiency Treatment

Vitamin D is often called the Sunshine Vitamin. It is a fat-soluble vitamin, acquired through sunlight or food resources. Ultraviolet rays act on the oils of the skin to produce the vitamin, which is then absorbed into the body. Vitamin D is absorbed from foods, through the intestinal wall, after they are ingested. Smog reduces the Vitamin D producing rays of the sun.

Ultraviolet rays act on the oils of the skin to produce the vitamin, which is then absorbed into the body. Vitamin D is absorbed from foods, through the intestinal wall, after they are ingested. Smog reduces the Vitamin D producing rays of the sun.

Dark-skinned people and suntanned people do not absorb vitamin D from the sun.

Vitamin D helps the utilization of calcium and phosphorus in the human body. It is important in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. It helps to improve the body’s resistance against respiratory tract infections and helps to assimilate vitamin A. It also keeps skin and bone healthy. 

Melanin absorbs ultraviolet B radiation from the sun and reduces vitamin D production. The liver is required to transform vitamin D into 25-hydroxyvitamin D. Some types of liver diseases and kidney diseases can decrease vitamin D production leading to a deficiency. This is an inactive metabolite of vitamin D but is a necessary precursor (building block) to create the active form of vitamin D.

Different Types of Vitamin D

Vitamin D2 / Ergocalciferol

Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) can also be found in supplements and comes from plant and/or fungal sources that are irradiated. There is some controversy about whether vitamin D₂ should be used as a supplement because it is not the form of vitamin D naturally made by the body.

Evidence also shows that our bodies can store vitamin D3 better than vitamin D2 and that vitamin D3 raises blood levels of vitamin D quicker. Similar to vitamin D3, vitamin D2 still requires activation by the liver and kidneys.


Deficiency symptoms: inadequate calcification of bones; skeletal deformity, migraine, hearing loss.


Excess symptoms: hypercalcaemia; renal stones; hypertension; excessive thirst; diarrhea; nausea; weakness.

Vitamin D3 / Cholecalciferol

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the form of vitamin D that is naturally made by our bodies after the skin is exposed to direct sunlight. It can also be found in vitamin supplements and foods, such as fortified milk, fatty fish, fish liver oil, and egg yolks. However, the body can’t actually use vitamin D3 until it is changed into an active form of vitamin D by the liver and kidneys.

Vitamin D3: Fatty Fish


Deficiency symptoms: inadequate calcification of bones; skeletal deformity, psoriasis, migraine, hearing loss.


Excess symptoms: hypercalcaemia; renal stones; hypertension; excessive thirst; diarrhea; nausea; weakness.

What are the symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency?

  1. Weakened immune system
  2. Seasonal depression
  3. Autoimmune disease Vitamin D is a potent immune modulator, making it very important for the prevention of autoimmune diseases, like multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease.
  4. Weak bones (Osteopenia)
  5. Skin issues eczema and psoriasis
Eczema

6. Osteoporosis is a medical condition in which the bones become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue, typically as a result of hormonal changes, or deficiency of calcium or vitamin D.

7. Rickets a childhood disease characterized by impeded growth and deformity of the long bones. The earliest sign of subclinical vitamin D deficiency is craniotabes, abnormal softening or thinning of the skull.

8. Dementia is not a specific disease. It’s an overall term that describes a wide range of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person’s ability to perform everyday activities.

Vitamin D Deficiency Treatment

People most likely to be Vitamin D deficient

People with darker skin

Various reports consistently show lower levels of vitamin D in those who identify as black compared with those who identify as white. This is because darker-skinned people have more Melanin in their epidermal, the outermost layer of skin, which makes it more challenging for the body to produce vitamin D from sunlight

Melanin is the pigment that gives human skin, hair, and eyes their color. It is also a broad term for a group of natural pigments found in most organisms.

People with a high body fat percentage

If you have a body mass index (BMI) over 30 or a high body fat percentage, it may be more challenging for vitamin D to circulate throughout your body, the NIH reports.

People suffering from depression

People with low levels of vitamin D in their blood are more than twice as likely to be diagnosed with depression as those with higher levels

Vegans and Vegetarians

One of the main sources of vitamin D aside from the sun is via eating animal products.

But, if you are a vegan or a vegetarian, this obviously poses a problem. Milk and yogurt are filled with vitamin D as well, but those are not options for vegans.

Vegans and Vegetarians

There are other sources of vitamin D out there, though they aren’t quite as potent as meat and eggs. You can find vitamin D in things such as:

  1. Oatmeal
  2. Shiitake mushrooms
  3. Almond milk
  4. Orange juice
  5. Cereal

People with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Up to 70% of people with IBD are lacking the proper amount of vitamin D in their bodies?

This is because inflammatory bowel disease causes your body to struggle immensely with properly absorbing fat. And, since vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, it would make sense that if you have IBD and aren’t able to properly take in fat, then you will be deficient in this vitamin.

Remember that under the category IBD falls a number of gastrointestinal problems such as:

Crohn's Disease NAET Dubai

-Crohn’s Disease

-Celiac Disease

-Non-celiac gluten sensitivity

How Vitamin D Impacts Your Immune System?

Now that we understand why so many people are deficient, what are the consequences of Vitamin D deficiency, specifically on our immune system?

Vitamin D works as a kind of light switch in your body, turning on or off genes and processes that your body needs to maintain health.

Active Vitamin D is sent to many different areas of your body, including your bones, intestines, colon, brain, and immune cells, which all have Vitamin D receptors. The active Vitamin D binds with these receptors and promotes Vitamin D responsive genes, essentially turning them on.

Vitamin D and Protective Immunity

Sufficient levels of Vitamin D reduce your risk of infectious disease by strengthening your innate immune system. Vitamin D turns on key peptides in your immune system that trigger a strong anti-microbial response, allowing you to quickly and effectively fight off invaders before they can develop into a full-blown infection.

How much vitamin D do I need?

The amount of vitamin D you need each day depends on your age. The recommended amounts, in international units (IU), are

  • Birth to 12 months: 400 IU
  • Children 1-13 years: 600 IU
  • Teens 14-18 years: 600 IU
  • Adults 19-70 years: 600 IU
  • Adults 71 years and older: 800 IU
  • Pregnant and breastfeeding women: 600 IU

What Does Vitamin D do in our body?

Vitamins are chemicals that are needed by your body for good health. They are vital for everyone and ensure that your body works well, is able to fight illness and heal well.

  1. Vitamin D is a potent immune modulator, making it very important for the prevention of autoimmune diseases, like multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease.
  2. It helps the utilization of calcium and phosphorus in the human body
  3. The immune system, which helps you to fight infection
  4. It is important in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis
  5. It helps to improve the body’s resistance against respiratory tract infection
  6. It helps to assimilate Vitamin A
  7. It keeps skin and bone healthy
  8. It works the best with Vitamin A, C choline calcium.

Testing for Vitamin D Deficiency

If you suspect you have a Vitamin D deficiency symptoms or you just want to know for sure you should ask your doctor for a blood test called the 25-hydroxy vitamin D test (also called the 25-OH vitamin D test or Calcidiol 25-hydroxycholecalciferol test). This test is the most accurate way to measure how much vitamin D is in your body.

To prepare for the test, do not eat for four hours before your appointment. The ”normal” range for vitamin D per most lab reports is 30.0 to 74.0 nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL), but virtually all integrative physicians will recommend a minimum level of at least 50 ng/mL. Any levels below 20 ng/mL are considered serious deficiency states.

To get an idea of just how widespread Vitamin D deficiency symptoms are, consider that the late-winter average of 25-hydroxy vitamin D in the United States is only about 15–18 ng/mL. If you have depression, you are most likely vitamin D-deficient yourself.

Preventing Vitamin D deficiency

  • Go out into the sun. Recommended sunlight exposure should be from 10 to 30 minutes per day. This is a great way of obtaining vitamin D3 and reversing vitamin D3 deficiency symptoms.
Sun Exposure

Note: Here in the UAE, during Summers the ideal time to soak up Vitamin D would preferably be during the early mornings and not the afternoon.

  • Using vitamin D supplements: Particularly for infants who are being breast-fed.
  • Eat foods rich in vitamin D: Fatty fish such as tuna, salmon, and mackerel, as well as fish liver oils, are excellent natural sources. Beef liver, cheese, and egg yolks contain small quantities of vitamin D. Milk is fortified with vitamin D, as are many cereals.

Natural Sources/ Foods rich in Vitamin D

Foods rich in Vitamin D NAET Dubai

1) Sunlight
Promotes vitamin D synthesis
from cholesterol in the skin.

2) Fish
With high oil content like herring, mackerel, salmon and tuna are excellent sources of vitamin D.

3) Mushrooms
Mushrooms are one of the most viable sources of vitamin D. They are another rich vitamin D foods. Mushroom is exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet rays while growing, which increases its vitamin D value.

4) Cheese
Cheese can single-handedly provide more satisfaction than any other food and we’re thrilled to give you another reason to enjoy it. Cheese is one of the top 5 foods high on Vitamin D

5) Soy Milk
Soy milk is plant-based milk produced by soaking dry soybeans and grinding them with water. While it contains the same amount of protein as regular cow’s milk it boasts of high Vitamin D, Vitamin C, and iron.

NAET and Vitamin D Deficiency Treatment

NAET goes beyond standard treatments. NAET increases your overall immune system and enhances your body’s ability to absorb needed nutrients to avoid deficiencies. One thing that contributes to deficiencies is a person being allergic to food groups that provide a certain micro-nutrients.

With NAET, we don’t require medications or long term avoidance, instead, NAET treats the root cause of allergies by desensitizing the body to problematic substances.

Vitamin D Deficiency Treatment

To treat your allergies, NAET does The Basic 15 which is comprised of micro-nutrients and basic food groups. Most people with significant allergies will need to get treated for the majority of The Basic 15. Once those are completed, your treatments will be more tailored to your individual health goals such as environmental, pet, chemical and disease-specific treatments and deficiencies.

Finally Found the Solution!

”Way back in my teenage years, I had severe acne on my face. I went to several dermatologists and I was given a bunch of skincare regimen but it didn’t work for me. I avoided chips and sweets knowing it was the cause for most cases but still, I had those acne breakouts. Out of desperation, I started searching for natural ways to solve my problem and that’s when I came to know NAET. I was told that I was Vitamin D deficient. After I was treated for vitamin D, and the acne started clearing out.”
