Last Week's Links 8-3-2020

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!

Mark your calendars–we are hosting another webinar:

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: 

Children Rarely Transmit COVID-19, Doctors Write in New Commentary

“The data are striking. The key takeaway is that children are not driving the pandemic. After six months, we have a wealth of accumulating data showing that children are less likely to become infected and seem less infectious.”

Do You Know How to Properly Hydrate?

Hydration is a critical component of optimal health. It is important for digestion, muscle contraction, circulation, thermoregulation, and neurologic functioning, among others.

Exercise Can Reduce Negative Emotions During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Strict social distancing measures implemented during the pandemic have impacted the daily lives of citizens around the world. Despite the mental health impact of such prolonged social isolation, little research has considered possible mitigating factors that might reduce mental suffering.

As we know: Move more, stress less.

Are Children Actually Losing Contact with Nature, or Is It That Their Experiences Differ from Those of 120 years Ago?

Interesting article:

“Are Children Actually Losing Contact with Nature, or Is It That Their Experiences Differ from Those of 120 years Ago?”

COVID-19 Vaccines With ‘Minor Side Effects’ Could Still Be Pretty Bad

THESE ARE THE FACTS WE NEED IN ORDER TO BE HAVING INFORMED DISCUSSIONS.

“The first people to get vaccines are carefully picked to be the least likely to have a negative reaction. If the Oxford vaccine is knocking them around badly, it might not bode well for the rest of us.”

“Yes, mild reactions were far more common than worse ones. But moderate or severe harms—defined as being bad enough to interfere with daily life or needing medical care—were common too.”

“Around one-third of people vaccinated with the Covid-19 vaccine without acetaminophen experienced moderate or severe chills, fatigue, headache, malaise, and/or feverishness. Close to 10 percent had a fever of at least 100.4 degrees, and just over one-fourth developed moderate or severe muscle aches. That’s a lot, in a young and healthy group of people—and the acetaminophen didn’t help much for most of those problems.  The paper’s authors designated the vaccine as “acceptable” and “tolerated,” but we don’t yet know how acceptable this will be to most people.”

“Coverage of the Moderna vaccine reflects a different kind of pharma spin: the drip-feeding of selective data via press release.”

COMMENTARY: Masks-For-All for COVID-19 Not Based on Sound Data

This is coming from the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy:

“Wearing a cloth mask or face covering could be better than doing nothing, but we simply don’t know at this point.”

“We are concerned that many people do not understand the very limited degree of protection a cloth mask or face covering likely offers as source control for people located nearby.”

BOTTOM LINE: If all you are doing is wearing a face mask, you likely aren’t doing enough.

INSTEAD OF FIGHTING OVER MASKS–DOESN’T IS MAKE MORE SENSE TO BUILD BETTER HEALTH & IMMUNE FUNCTION?

Peter Marks on Covid-19 Vaccine Efficacy, EUAs and Challenge Trials

“In its guidance, FDA said it expected sponsors to demonstrate a vaccine is at least 50% effective in a placebo-controlled trial, with an adjusted lower bound of >30%.”

“If you go much lower than 50% then the lower bounds of things start to get to a place where vaccines may have very little efficacy,” Marks added. “On the other hand, if we held that number at 70% to 80% … we may not have a vaccine until there’s herd immunity that’s occurred naturally.”
