Last Week's Links 7-27-20

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: 

How to Help Kids Exercise Their Brains and Become More Independent This Summer — Even During Covid-19

Parents are worried this summer — far more than in the past — about how to keep their kids learning after a spring semester where many lost ground.

Here’s some help.

Cleveland Clinic Study: Rise in Broken-Heart Syndrome Caused by Increased Stress of Coronavirus Pandemic

Over 1,700 people die of heart disease in the United States EVERY DAY.

“To manage stress is a universal question. I think people have stressful lives, and [the pandemic] has only precipitated more stress in people’s lives. I think focus on self-care is social. Focusing on holistic self-care is relevant more than ever.”

MHSAA Announces Fall Sports Will Kick Off 2020-21 School Year as Traditionally Scheduled

We see a lot of high school athletes that will be happy to see this!!

Misinformation and De-Contextualization: International Media Reporting on Sweden and COVID-19

Who’s burned-out on COVID coverage? This is a very interesting article that looks at what is actually happening in Sweden, compared to what is being portrayed in the media and elsewhere.

Context matters. Nuance matters.

“The Swedish example underlines the importance of fact checking and source critique and the need for precision when presenting data and statistics.”

Worth the read.

Lemon Water in the Morning: Benefits & Myths

We love lemon water in the morning!!

(It’s also a good source of vitamin C.)

Reviews Sound the Alarm on Endocrine Disruptors

Reviews of hundreds of studies show that a growing number of chemicals—in pesticides, flame retardants, and certain plastics—are linked to widespread health problems, including infertility, diabetes, and impaired brain development.

Modern life is stressful and toxic. What do you do to manage it?

 

Risk Assessment is a Skill That Requires Time to Learn 

Childhood is the time to build this risk assessment skill set. Kids need ample time to explore and adequately learn the concepts of consequence and likelihood.

Health and Happiness Depend on Each Other

“Though prior studies have shown that happier people tend to have better cardiovascular health and immune-system responses than their less happy counterparts, our research is one of the first randomized controlled trials to suggest that increasing the psychological well-being even of generally healthy adults can have benefits to their physical health.”

Like we always say, you don’t have to be sick to get better!!

COVID-19 Temperature Checks Might Do More Harm Than Good

The group of people most likely to be asymptomatic spreaders of the virus (young people) and those most vulnerable to the virus (over-65s and immunocompromised individuals) are unlikely to present with fevers at all, although for very different reasons.

Young people are more likely to just not show any signs of illness at all, while the other group may not be healthy enough. “You actually have to be kind of healthy to mount a fever…”

The Passage of Time During the UK Covid-19 Lockdown

Interesting research showing how COVID-19 has interfered with many people’s perception of time.

Why Walking Might Be One of the Best Exercises for Health

Looks like today is a beautiful day for an adjustment and a nice walk!

“Countless scientific studies have found that this simple act of moving our feet can provide a number of health benefits and help people live longer. In fact, a walking routine — if done properly — might be the only aerobic exercise people need.”

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.
