High Vitamin D Status Decreases Risk of Breast Cancer

A recent study investigated the relationship between vitamin D status and breast cancer. The study included 636 women who had been diagnosed with incident breast cancer and 1,272 matched controls. The results revealed a decreased risk of breast cancer with increased levels of vitamin D. Researchers also found a significant inverse relationship in women under 53 years of age. Premenopausal women with high serum vitamin D levels had a reduced risk of breast cancer, although not significantly. These findings suggest that high vitamin D levels reduce the risk of developing breast cancer especially in younger women. Although further studies are necessary to confirm these results, women should be encouraged to maintain adequate vitamin D levels.

To Our Community

Acupuncture Atlanta is committed to providing quality care and helping you stay healthy in this environment defined by a new normal. Acupuncture at its core is a preventative modality and our practitioners are here to work with you and design a treatment plan that is suitable for your specific needs.

The clinic resumed treatments on May 7th with limited hours and new guidelines, and we are slowly working towards full-time hours. Please check the Book Appointment page for available days and time slots, or call us. 

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
