Last Week's Links 6-8-20

Before we get to the links, we have a special message:

Although the Governor’s “Safer at Home” executive order was extended to mid-June for places like gyms and theaters, WE ARE EXCITED THAT CHIROPRACTIC OFFICES ARE ABLE TO RESUME NORMAL CARE!!

We are open (see hours below), and looking forward to resuming YOUR regular care—as soon as you are ready! 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: 

Financial Ties Between Leaders of Influential US Professional Medical Associations and Industry: Cross Sectional Study

“Financial relationships between the leaders of influential US professional medical associations and industry are extensive, although with variation among the associations. The quantum of payments raises questions about independence and integrity, adding weight to calls for policy reform.”


Projected Deaths of Despair During COVID-19 – Well Being Trust

This study says that even a quick recovery could lead to approximately 28,000 additional deaths of despair related to COVID-19, while a slow recovery could lead to  more than 150,000 additional deaths.

The authors believe the most likely scenario hits somewhere in the middle with an estimated 75,000 additional deaths.

What can we do to make a difference??


As always, we are here to help.


Omega-3 Supplements May Slow a Biological Effect of Aging

Are you getting enough omega 3’s?

Omega 3 supplementation has been shown to reduce oxidative stress as well as inflammation and increase telomere length in white blood cells.

This research suggests that omega-3 supplements could represent a rare single nutritional intervention that has potential to lower the risk for a host of diseases associated with aging, such as coronary heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease.


We could all use a good laugh:

Why should you get sunlight in the morning?

Because morning sunlight exposure is tied to a good night’s sleep!


For Our Own Good, Let There Be Dark

“We evolved to see bright blue, full-spectrum light during the day and to have complete blackness at night… Both are really healthy for your circadian system. It’s all about this oscillatory balance under natural conditions between light and dark.”

“For scientists and physicians, the term ‘warp speed’ should trigger concern… Good science requires rigor, discipline, and deliberate caution.”




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.
