Just What Older People Didn’t Need: More Isolation

Isolation is real health problem, at any age — but in the elderly it’s associated with significantly higher rates of heart disease and stroke and a 50 percent increased risk of dementia, the National Academies report pointed out.

UPDATE – April 23 – Gut Health
Update 4-23

Chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, COPD, asthma, hypertension, diabetes and obesity are all the biggest risk factors for having the most serious cases of COVID-19. And what is the common thread in all of these chronic diseases? Chronic inflammation! One of the biggest triggers of chronic inflammation is the food you eat!

Given these facts, and the fact that about 70% of immune system tissue is concentrated in the gut anyway–you  can do a lot of good, or a lot of harm to your gut and immune system with every meal!


Glycolytic Control of Vacuolar-type ATPase Activity: A Mechanism to Regulate Influenza Viral Infection

This study found that more sugar = more infection.

“As new influenza virus strains emerge, finding new mechanisms to control infection is imperative. In this study, we found that we could control influenza infection of mammalian cells by altering the level of glucose given to cells. Higher glucose concentrations induced a dose-specific increase in influenza infection.”

For the duration of today’s “Stay Home” Executive Order (until April 14th), our offices will be seeing 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.
