“Walking is man's best medicine.” ~ Hippocrates It's the easiest exercise to begin with if you are very deconditioned and not used to exercising and it's also good for helping with depression...so get out there and start walking, even if just for 15 minutes without stopping, you'll feel much better!

Health Alert: New Test May Curb Antibiotics Use. The overuse of antibiotics has been a long-time problem that has contributed to antibiotic-resistant bacteria strains. A new on-the-spot test that only takes three minutes could provide physicians with pertinent information to help decide if antibiotics should be prescribed. The test measures C-reactive protein concentration from a small drop. If a patient is experiencing a serious bacterial infection, his or her C-reactive protein levels will be elevated, which may warrant antibiotic use. If the test finds low levels of C-reactive protein, a serious bacterial infection can be ruled out and the patient can be advised that antibiotics are unnecessary. When this test was used in a clinical setting, doctors prescribed 22% fewer antibiotics. The Cochrane Library, November 2014

Diet: How Many Miles Do You Have to Walk to Burn Off That Soda? Informing teens about how much they have to walk or run in order to burn off the calories in a soda or sugary drink may persuade them to consider a lower-calorie beverage, like water. A new study involved installing brightly colored signs in six stores. The signs informed consumers that a 20-ounce (~.6 liter) bottle of regular soda, sports drink, or fruit juice contained 250 calories and would require five miles of walking to burn off. Of the 35% of teens who said they saw the signs, 59% said they believed the information and 40% said they changed their purchases as a result. Study leader Dr. Sara Bleich adds, "If you're going to give people calorie information, there's probably a better way to do it. What our research found is that when you explain calories in an easily understandable way such as how many miles of walking needed to burn them off, you can encourage behavior change."

Exercise: Weight Training Can Improve Memory. Among healthy young adults, investigators have found that intense workouts as short as twenty minutes can enhance long-term memory regarding recent events by about 10%. Lead researcher Dr. Lisa Weinberg adds, "Our study indicates that people don't have to dedicate large amounts of time to give their brain a boost." Though the study involved weight-lifting exercises, Dr. Weinberg and her colleagues say resistance activities such as squats or knee bends would likely produce the same results.

Diet: Grapefruit Juice May Counter Effects of a High-Fat Diet. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley claim that drinking grapefruit juice can reduce the effects of a high-fat diet, according to a study conducted on mice. The team found that subjects that consumed a high-fat diet and also drank grapefruit juice gained 18% less weight than those on a high-fat diet that only drank water. They also noted that grapefruit-drinking mice fed a high-fat diet also experienced a 13-17% reduction in blood glucose levels and a three-fold decrease in insulin levels. PLOS ONE, October 2014

Health Alert: Heroin is an Increasing Problem in the United States. Heroin overdoses leading to death doubled in the United States between 2010 and 2012. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention claims this increase is directly related to the epidemic of narcotic painkiller abuse. They advise that solving the problem of deaths from heroin overdose begins with stopping addiction to narcotic painkillers. According to Dr. Andrew Kolodny, the president of Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing, "We need to prevent new cases of addiction. To do that, the medical community has to prescribe more cautiously." Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, October 2014

Chiropractic: Manual Therapy Effective for Cervicogenic Dizziness. Dizziness that is caused by joints in the neck is referred to as cervicogenic dizziness, which can be a disabling and persistent problem. A recent study has found that manual therapy is an effective treatment for this condition. Patients who received manual therapies noted improvements in range of motion and balance, without adverse effects. The researchers conclude that the forms of manual therapy used in the study provide evidence of long-term benefit for the treatment of chronic cervicogenic dizziness.

Diet: Soda Companies Pledge to Cut Calories in Drinks. Over the next decade, the top soda makers in the United States have agreed to help reduce the amount of calories the average American consumes from sugary beverages by 20%. They plan on doing this by shrinking drink sizes and marketing healthier choices. Dr. Samantha Heller, senior clinical nutritionist at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City, explains that this agreement could serve as a blueprint for future healthy diet initiatives. She writes, "Wouldn't it be cool if we could encourage food companies to promote fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and beans in a similar fashion?" The announcement is seen by some as a powerful step towards improving public health. Clinton Global Initiative In New York City, September 2014

Exercise: Blood Pressure Remains Lower Longer in Fitter Men as They Age. Men who participate in aerobic exercise can delay the onset of age-related high blood pressure by nearly a decade, according to a new study. As we age, blood pressure naturally increases as arteries become stiffer. While men who start working out earlier in life will receive the most benefit, older men can still use exercise to help control their blood pressure. These findings suggest heart-healthy exercise may keep blood vessels more flexible, and though the study was on men, women will most likely experience the same result.

Wellness/Prevention: Deprescribing Could Benefit Older Patients. Deprescribing -- the process of reducing or stopping medications -- should be a priority for all prescribing physicians, suggests two articles published in the Medical Journal of Australia. The authors note that the potential benefit of removing unnecessary drugs (and their potential adverse effects) in the elderly population is significant. Up to 30% of hospital admissions for individuals over the age of 75 are medication-related, and up to 75% are potentially preventable, say the authors. Although evidence suggests that deprescribing would produce more benefits than risks, more research is needed regarding negative, non-reversible effects of ceasing use of certain classes of medication.

Does Being Overweight Influence the Effectiveness of Care for Low Back Pain? If a patient is overweight or obese, will their body size impact how they respond to conservative (non-operative) therapies to treat their lower back pain? To find out, low back pain patients of various body sizes underwent conservative treatment and their care was monitored with both pain scales and disability questionnaires. Based on the measureable results among normal, overweight, and obese patients, the researchers conclude that conservative care for chronic lower back pain is equally as effective for patients of all shapes and sizes.

Health Alert: Don't Let Kids Swallow the Water While Swimming. Infectious disease experts suggest that bacteria and parasites can lurk in swimming water, especially kiddy wading pools. The warm, shallow water and kids in swim diapers appear to create a breeding ground for water-born disease. Experts recommend the best way to prevent young children from getting sick is to keep them from swallowing the water and if your child has a gastrointestinal illness, they recommend keeping them out of pools or water parks for several days.

Trampolines = ER Visits. Trampoline accidents have led to more than one million visits to hospital emergency rooms over the last 10 years in the United States at a cost of more than $1 billion dollars. Researchers note that the actual number of trampoline-related injuries is most likely higher because people may also seek care from their family doctors and/or urgent care centers for less serious injuries. Study author Dr. Randall Loder adds, "I think trampolines should not be allowed in backyards. It's that simple. It's a significant public health problem."

Chiropractic Update: Ending Pain and Staying Healthy Is A Surprisingly Small Thing... Here's something interesting. Do you know how much money American Airlines saved in 1987 by eliminating ONE olive from each salad they served in first class? You'll never guess. $40,000! Amazing, isn't it? And if you translate that amount to today's dollars - it would be a lot more! You want to know what else is interesting and quite amazing? If you do, listen to this: It is estimated that 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated, which basically means three quarters of the country does not drink anywhere near enough H20. And check this out - it is also estimated that in 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak it is often mistaken for hunger. And even mild dehydration can slow down your metabolism by as much as 3%. And there's more... One glass of water shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters in a University of Washington study. But that's not all! Lack of water is the number one trigger for daytime fatigue. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen. As a quick aside related to computers - in 2006 one in eight people showed signs of being addicted to the internet! Can you imagine? BACK TO WATER... SOME ESTIMATES SAY DRINKING FIVE GLASSES A DAY CAN DECREASE THE RISK OF COLON CANCER BY 45%, SLASH BREAST CANCER BY 79% AND DECREASE YOUR CHANCES OF GETTING BLADDER CANCER BY 50%. So what's the point of all these interesting facts? Is all this just to get you to drink more water? Hardly... Listen... although it's obvious you should be drinking plenty of water - the REAL take home message here is: small things done consistently over a long period of time can have a major impact on your health and life. Let's face it. One olive is not a big thing. But removing just one from the in-flight salad meant $40,000 over the course of a year. Just 5 glasses of water a day might save you from one of those deadly conditions listed above. And here's something else you may find important - regular Chiropractic care may have a BIG impact on your life. How, you ask? If you came to us in pain and we helped you... it might stop your original condition from coming back. And not only that - just one visit per month may help you live a healthier, more pain-free life... in many ways. Those olives and glasses of water add up and have a huge impact over time. So do Chiropractic treatments, even though they may be tough to actually measure. Here's one more interesting fact if you'd like to lose weight: Banging your head against the wall burns 150 calories an hour! Yeah... you're right... there's probably a better way... :-)
