Last Week's Links 5-11-20

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:

This Is Your Brain on Exercise

Human beings evolved to move. Our brains require movement. Our brains become much more active during exercise–to the point that movement acts as ‘miracle-gro’ for the brain.

Because of the proximity to the central nervous system, movement of the spine is critical to maximizing the brain-based benefits of exercise.

If your spine is restricted, then your brain doesn’t get all of the benefits of movement that it needs to function optimally.

Research shows that just one Chiropractic adjustment can help increase spinal function and help improve brain function!!

Isn’t that amazing?!?

Are minimalist shoes right for you?


Why the Coronavirus is So Confusing

“No one knows it all, and those who claim to should not be trusted.”

“We should give people information so they can do what they think is right. We should tell people what we don’t know and when we’ll know more.”

This article was sensibly written and makes many great points about the COVID Crisis.


Everything We Know About Covid-19 Antibody Tests (So Far)

Here’s an update on what we know and what we don’t know when it comes to antibody testing.


Covid-19 Deaths Are Being Linked to Vitamin D Deficiency. Here’s What That Means

This study found that the most vulnerable group of the population for COVID-19 is also the one that is the most deficient in vitamin D…


Foundation Supplements for Building Health and Immune Function


We’ve been getting a lot of questions about supplements—which ones to focus on now in order to optimize health and immune function.

The supplements I talk about here, along with probiotics—which I talked about last time—are the nutritional tools you need to have in your toolbox if you’re really looking to build better health and immune function ANY time, but ESPECIALLY NOW!

Remember, staying healthy is the best way to stay safe!!


‘Overwhelming Evidence’ Supports Vitamin D’s Immune Function Benefits

It is EXTREMELY RARE to hear words like “indisputable” and “overwhelming evidence” in nutrition research, so when you see it, you want to take notice of what it’s all about!!

In this case, it’s about the benefits of vitamin D for immune function!!


Forest Bathing: The Science Behind Its Positive Effects

Can ‘forest bathing’ increase immune function?

“One of the most significant benefits of foods like spices and cruciferous vegetables is their ability to safely “stress” our cells, signaling to them to put up their defenses against invaders like infections and cancer. The result is a stronger immune system that is more capable of fighting foes and harmful free radicals. Surprisingly, forest bathing may have similar benefits.”


In 1850, Ignaz Semmelweis Saved Lives With Three Words: Wash Your Hands

Wow–it seems there is a great deal of anger and outrage permeating the world right now, and insults are being hurled online and in-person in just about every direction you can imagine!

It’s important to point out that NOT ALL DISSENTERS ARE WRONG, AND THE ESTABLISHED NARRATIVE ISN’T ALWAYS RIGHT. This has been proven true MANY TIMES OVER, but in particular, the example of Ignaz Semmelweis and hand washing seems very appropriate for our current situation.

No one has all the answers–but being ‘prickly,’ ‘shrill,’ and ‘insulting’ on either side of an idea often gets in the way of the truth, and that can cost lives.


This Is How Your Fear and Outrage Are Being Sold for Profit

This article is from 2017, but it applies today in spades to show how whipping up a frenzy (right or wrong, real threat or not) is a profitable business model for businesses like Facebook, Google, and other media networks.

Remember: it’s ultimately your decision if you want to play into it. You can donate your anger and outrage to Facebook, or you can use it as motivation to do something (anything) positive.



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.
