Last Week's Links 7-21-20

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: 

Can Probiotics Help Ease Depression?

“A number of studies have linked the makeup of the gut microbiome to the risks of various health conditions.”

Should you consider taking probiotics to treat a specific condition, or because a healthy microbiome is essential for humans to function properly?

Poor Sleep at Night ‘Spills Over’ into Children’s Emotional Lives

“The experience and expression of positive emotions are essential for children’s friendships, healthy social interactions and effective coping. Our findings might explain why children who sleep less on average have more peer-related problems…”

A Conversation with John Ioannidis

“[We] face a communication challenge – how do we convey the severity of a virus which is both more dangerous and less dangerous than the flu?

This interview with John Ioannidas is an interesting must-read–because it’s reasonable and informative.

(Ioannidis is a professor of epidemiology at Stanford University and is one of the most cited physician scientists.)

“I view “lockdown” as a drug with dangerous side effects when its use is prolonged. It’s an extreme measure – a last resort, the nuclear option.”

“A country should be locked down not a minute longer than absolutely necessary. We have to keep assessing its risk-benefit calculus, by collecting and analyzing data, making sure we’re measuring the denominator accurately, and finding vulnerable and not vulnerable sub-groups.”

“We failed to protect our most vulnerable, in part because of our “one-size-fits-all” approach…”

“We needed extra precautionary effort in high-risk settings such as nursing homes, prisons, meat processing plants, and homeless shelters. The corollary of having high-risk groups is that there must be low-risk groups, and low-risk people can continue working. We can’t treat everyone as “high risk” because then the high risk won’t get the extra attention and care they deserve.”

Population Muscle Strength Predicts Olympic Medal Tallies: Evidence from 20 Countries in the PURE Prospective Cohort Study

…I like the idea of ‘National grip strength’ as a predictor for Summer Olympic performance!

 

SARS-CoV-2 Infection Induces Robust, Neutralizing Antibody Responses That Are Stable For At Least Three Months

“Here we report that the vast majority of infected individuals with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 experience robust IgG antibody responses against the viral spike protein, based on a dataset of 19,860 individuals screened at Mount Sinai Health System in New York City. We also show that titers are stable for at least a period approximating three months, and that anti-spike binding titers significantly correlate with neutralization of authentic SARS-CoV-2. Our data suggests that more than 90% of seroconverters make detectible neutralizing antibody responses and that these titers are stable for at least the near-term future.”

Children and Adolescents in the CoVid-19 Pandemic: Schools and Daycare Centers are to be Opened Again without Restrictions. The Protection of Teachers, Educators, Carers and Parents and the General Hygiene Rules Do Not Conflict With This

“Taking into account regional infection rates and available resources, daycare centers, kindergartens and elementary schools promptly should be reopened. For children, this should be possible without excessive restrictions…”

Inflammation as a Cause of Depression

The nervous system and the immune system are inextricably intertwined.

If you want to be healthy, you need a healthy nervous system.

If you want a healthy nervous system, you need a healthy spine.

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.
