Last Week's Links 11-25-19

Here are the links from our Rom Family Chiropractic Facebook page and all the good stuff we posted over the  last week.

We like to post things on a wide variety of health topics, but it can all be broken down into 5 broad categories:

1. Being well-adjusted
2. Eating well
3. Moving well
4. Thinking well
5. Sleeping well


Here are the links we posted from last week:  

Listening to Music While Driving Reduces Cardiac Stress

“Stress while driving is a risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease and sudden cardiac complications such as heart attack (myocardial infarction), according to studies published in recent years. Selecting suitable driving music may be one way to mitigate this risk.”

Every little bit helps!

 

An Evidence-Based Review of Elderberry and Elderflower

It’s getting to be that time of year – here’s some good info on elderberry: the strongest evidence for elderberry extract is for flu.

There is also decent evidence suggesting elderberry might help to reduce the burden of bacterial sinusitis, reduce constipation and reduce gastrointestinal transit time, lower cholesterol levels, and, when applied topically to the gums, improve gingivitis.

In other uses, elderberry has been used as a gargle for colds, coughs, laryngitis, flu-like symptoms, and shortness of breath; orally for infections, coughs, and skin conditions; and topically for pain, wound healing, rheumatism, and swelling…

 

Link Between Inflammation and Mental Sluggishness Shown in New Study

It’s all connected, and the nervous system runs the show. A healthy lifestyle that keeps you eating well, moving well, thinking well, sleeping well, & your spine well-adjusted is the BEST way to GET and STAY WELL!

“This research finding is major step forward in understanding the links between physical, cognitive, and mental health and tells us that even the mildest of illnesses may reduce alertness.”

“Furthermore, subtle changes in brain function may be used as an early marker cognitive deterioration in patients with inflammatory diseases.”

 

Melatonin as a Mitochondria-Targeted Antioxidant: One of Evolution’s Best Ideas

Did you know that melatonin, the hormone that largely regulates sleep, is also an antioxidant?

…One more reason to make sleep a priority!

 

Walking More During the Day Can Lead to Better a Quality Sleep, Study Suggests

You don’t have to be sick to get better! Adding just a 20 minute walk at lunch is a good way to increase daily movement and also improve sleep quality!

Can’t do 20 minutes? Do 15! Do 10! (Do what you can!!)

“Plenty of research suggests that engaging in regular physical activity during the day can help improve sleep at night. Most studies, however, have involved college students or adults with either specific health problems or clinical sleep problems, such as insomnia. Few studies have examined how physical activity influences the quality of sleep of healthy adults.”

The Holidays are coming! The Holidays are coming!

Make it a point to get more rest this weekend to help you get through it all!

“[S]cientists have gathered new evidence which demonstrates that the key to living longer is to get a good amount of sleep…”

 

You’re More Likely to Mess Things Up Without Enough Sleep

Sleep deprivation affects us much more than prior theories have suggested, according to new research.
