Last Week's Links 2-22-21

Once again, we hope that everyone got to relax and breathe over the weekend. Now is the  time to keep the good routine rolling and keep building positive health momentum! Always remember: don’t let perfect get in the way of better, and that we are here to help!!

WE ARE THANKFUL FOR ALL OF YOU, WHO CHOOSE ROM FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC TO BE A PART OF YOUR JOURNEY OF GETTING AND STAYING HEALTHY!!

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!

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: 

Breastfeeding Moms with COVID-19 Pass Antibodies to Their Babies

Evidence suggest that COVID-19 positive mothers should not be separated from their newborn babies.

Isn’t the body amazing?!?

Your immune system is your super power!!

 

Can a Fitness or Sleep Tracker Tell If You’re Sick?

It’s always good to have a sense of what’s going on with your body, as long as you don’t obsess over it. Fitness trackers can offer some valuable insight into how your body is doing day-to-day.

While the information fitness trackers collect aims to be 100% objective, the interpretation of the data can be very subjective.

Fitness trackers are another ‘tool in the toolbox’ for creating a healthy lifestyle!

 

How ‘Killer’ T Cells Could Boost COVID Immunity in Face of New Variants

The immune system is amazing!

The full complement of immune cells is always going to provide stronger immunity than a single antibody.

 

Calcifediol Treatment and COVID-19-Related Outcomes

Imagine there was a treatment for COVID that reduced the risk of ICU admission by 82 percent and the risk of death by 64 percent—in people who’ve already been hospitalized for a severe COVID-19 infection.

This would be pretty exciting news, right?

We’d expect to see media headlines, experts interviewed on TV, and new public health guidelines incorporating this treatment into the standard of care for people hospitalized with COVID.

Well, it turns out there is a treatment that does exactly what is stated above. And the amazing thing is that it’s cheap, has no known side effects or risks, and is readily available around the world…

Vitamin D.

(This study is a pre-print, meaning it still needs to go through peer review; but there is already a stack of research showing the correlation between vitamin D status and COVID risk and severity.)

 

Proprioception, Our Imperceptible 6th Sense

“Proprioception is a key component of our ‘global positioning system’, which is essential in our daily life because we need to know where we are in order to move somewhere. Proprioception enables us to determine each body part’s position, speed and direction, whether we see it or not, and so enables the brain to guide our movements.”

What many people don’t know is that proprioception is crucial for day-to-day brain and nervous system development, maintenance and function!!

Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to open proprioceptive pathways in the body, and more importantly, KEEP THEM OPEN to help the body function and self-regulate at a higher level.

How do you know if you can benefit from Chiropractic? Give us a call–we’re here to help!!

PLEASE REMEMBER: 

Our offices will continue to see patients BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. This will allow us to space out visits and allow for minimizing contact. 

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. We even have cleaning products in the rooms, if you feel more comfortable doing it yourself.
