Vitamin Deficiencies, refer to the lack of one or more essential vitamins. The most common types of Vitamin Deficiencies include Vitamin D Deficiency, Vitamin B12 Deficiency, and Folate Deficiency. The cause of Vitamin Deficiencies is most commonly tied with your diet. Your diet may lack in certain vitamins which leads to Vitamin Deficiency. Another reason for the development of Vitamin Deficiency is if the body cannot properly absorb the nutrients that are found in the foods that you eat. 

What Are the Symptoms?

Vitamin Deficiencies usually develop slowly over the months / years. Symptoms of Vitamin Deficiency may be subtle at first, but will increase as the deficiency worsens. Symptoms of Vitamin Deficiency include:

  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Personality changes
  • Unsteady movements
  • Muscle weakness
  • Numbness / tingling in hands and feet
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weight loss
  • Pale / Yellow skin
  • Mental confusion / forgetfulness
  • Irregular heartbeats

Traditional Management

Treatments for Vitamin Deficiencies include IV Therapy and UVLrx Light Therapy. With IV Therapy, the nutrients (vitamins) that are needed are injected directly into the veins which allows easy absorption into the cells. In UVLrx Light Therapy a light cable that delivers three different wavelengths of light, sits in a patient’s vein where the blood circulates. Each blood cell is exposed to the light and in over an hour, each blood cell is exposed to the light at least 5-7 times. This helps kill microorganisms in the blood and helps to stimulate and strengthen the immune system.
