Last Week's Links 12-14-20

We have entered the ‘Holiday Stress Red Zone’– but this year is going to be different! Start TODAY to better manage that stress–give your body everything it needs to be more resilient and durable, so the stress doesn’t get to be overwhelming in the coming weeks!! Now is the time to STAY WELL-ADJUSTED!!

Before we get to the links:

The health and safety of our patients and team is our highest priority. We are continuing to schedule by appointment only to allow for the thorough cleaning of surfaces between visits. We are limiting the number of people in the office at any given time, and we are following other suggested guidelines for safety and prevention to ensure a clean, stress-free environment for everyone.

If this crisis has showed us anything it’s how important it is to have a high level of durable baseline health and resilience—now more than ever!

Without further ado, 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: 

Estimation of US Children’s Educational Attainment and Years of Life Lost Associated With Primary School Closures During the Coronavirus Disease 2019 Pandemic

Interesting paper on school closures:

“This decision analytical model found that missed instruction during 2020 could be associated with an estimated 5.53 million years of life lost. This loss in life expectancy was likely to be greater than would have been observed if leaving primary schools open had led to an expansion of the first wave of the pandemic.”

“In this decision analytical model of years of life potentially lost under differing conditions of school closure, the analysis favored schools remaining open. Future decisions regarding school closures during the pandemic should consider the association between educational disruption and decreased expected lifespan and give greater weight to the potential outcomes of school closure on children’s health.”

Place and Causes of Acute Cardiovascular Mortality During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an increase in acute cardiovascular deaths, nearly half of which occurred in the community and most did not relate to COVID-19 infection.
Promoting healthy lifestyle fundamentals could do a tremendous amount to combat ALL of the top killers in the US: heart disease, cancer, deaths due to medical error, and even COVID-19 too.

Rush to Publish COVID-19 Research Saw Errors in Top Medical Journals Triple, Study Finds

The volume and speed of publishing scientific research has accelerated dramatically this year, and that makes it more likely that mistakes will occur–mistakes that can be consequential and take years to uncover and correct.
This is a problem that needs to be fixed!

People Are Working Longer Hours During the Pandemic

Are you working longer hours from home?
Be sure to take regular posture breaks throughout the day and get adjusted regularly to help manage the additional stress on your body!!

A Drop in Temperature: Researchers Examine the Decline in Average Body Temperature Among Healthy Adults Over the Past Two Decades

Is 97.5 the new 98.6?

Op-Ed: Demanding Thanksgiving Abstinence Is Not Public Health

Interesting article.
“Instead of admonishing people to not gather, public health experts should begin from the starting point that people really want this — correction, people are saying they need this. Given that the desire is so strong, what advice can we give to minimize the risk? How can we reduce — not eliminate risk.”
We have 15 days until Christmas gatherings. What did we learn from Thanksgiving, and how can we all do better?

Another Reason Vitamin D is Important: It Gets T Cells Going

“Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to a rapidly expanding inventory of ailments—including heart disease, cancer and the common cold. A new discovery demonstrates how the vitamin plays a major role in keeping the body healthy in the first place, by allowing the immune system’s T cells to start doing their jobs.”
“The body naturally makes vitamin D when the skin is exposed to sunshine (it can also come from eggs and some fish products), but most people in the U.S. are considered to be deficient in the vitamin. In fact, a 2009 Archives of Internal Medicine study found that 77 percent of U.S. adults and teenagers surveyed did not have the estimated minimum healthful level of 30 nanograms per milliliter in their blood.”

We are still here, still serving the community and helping people in this time of great stress and uncertainty. We are keeping the office extra clean & sanitized—wiping down all surfaces consistently as well as wiping down tables after every adjustment.
