Last Week's Links 3-25-19

We hope everyone had a great weekend!! Here are the links from our Rom Family Chiropractic Facebook page and all the good stuff we posted  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:  

Inactive Ingredients In Drugs May Be Less Inactive Than You Think

Another reason to stay off the medication merry-go-round altogether:
A new study finds that, in some patients, inactive ingredients can trigger allergic reactions or other symptoms of food intolerance.

Don’t Take An Aspirin A Day To Prevent Heart Attacks And Strokes: Doctors Reverse Recommendation

“It’s much more important to optimize lifestyle habits and control blood pressure and cholesterol as opposed to recommending aspirin.”

How Inuit Parents Teach Kids To Control Their Anger

“Many parents overlook play as a tool for discipline… But fantasy play offers oodles of opportunities to teach children proper behavior.”

Ear Infections

Ear Infection Video
Ear infections are the most common reason parents bring their kids to the medical doctor. Nearly five out of six children will experience at least one ear infection by their 3rd birthday.

Researchers have found a significant correlation between Chiropractic adjustments and the resolution of ear infections in children.

If your child has been suffering from chronic ear infections, you should get them checked by a chiropractor!

Give us a call to set up an appointment and take advantage of the start-up special we are offering all month long for children 17 and under!

How This 68-Year-Old Just Keeps Swimming (And Swimming)

Just a cool story–it’s never too late!!

“Gallant-Charette didn’t get serious about swimming until she was 58. And she was terrified of the ocean for years…”

The Prefrontal Cortex, Cerebellum, and Reward Systems

“We think this part of the brain [the cerebellum] is very susceptible to the environment. And interestingly, it’s a part of the brain that changes most during the teen years. This part of the brain has not finished growing well into the early 20s, even. The cerebellum used to be thought to be involved in the coordination of our muscles. So if your cerebellum is working well, you were graceful, a good dancer, a good athlete.

But we now know it’s also involved in coordination of our cognitive processes, our thinking processes. Just like one can be physically clumsy, one can be kind of mentally clumsy…”

Why is a chiropractic office posting this? Because there is a significant amount of evidence showing that chiropractic adjustments POSITIVELY INFLUENCE THE DEVELOPMENT of the CEREBELLUM!! This is an area of research that is developing and exciting to see unfold as we gain a better understanding of how it all works!

Why You Should Let Your Kids Go Barefoot More Often

Something to look forward to with warmer weather: going barefoot!!

Shoes can often constrict movement of the feet, and can negatively impact walking, balance, sensory development, and proprioception (the understanding of our body’s orientation in the space around us).
