Hi
Vitamin deficiency can be corrected by the intake of particular vitamin in right proportion.
Vitamin B is available in vegetables & fruits & millets like unpolished rice, ragi etc.
Vitamin D is easily synthesized by your skin when exposed to direct sunlight.
So eat balanced & nutritious food.
Do some exercise or even walking in the sun, when the rays are not very harsh will help you.
If these things are not possible for some reason, you can always go for synthetic vitamin substitutes available in drug stores
