Health Alert: Migraines Linked to Increased Risk for Pregnancy Complications. Researchers analyzed over
145,000 pregnancies and found that women with a history of migraine had a higher risk of obstetric and postpartum
complications, such as gestational diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and blood clots. Study author Dr. Nirit Lev notes, “Our study confirms that women who suffer from migraine are at a greater risk of a host of medical and obstetric complications. As such, we are [recommending] that these women should be classed as ‘high-risk’ pregnancies and should therefore be treated according to a high-risk protocol.”                                      European Academy of Neurology, June 2021

Diet: Western Diet Contributes to Chronic Pain. New research suggests that the typical Western diet, which is high in omega-6 polyunsaturated fats, is a significant risk factor for both inflammatory and neuropathic pain. Additionally, the researchers observed that adopting a healthier diet can significantly reduce—and in some cases even reverse—these types of pain.                                                                                 Nature Metabolism, June 2021

Exercise: Overtraining Can Impair Mitochondrial Function. Mitochondrial capacity is the ability of the body to
generate energy and is a factor associated with increased athletic performance, especially endurance exercise. In a
new study, researchers found that performing too much intense exercise can impair mitochondrial capacity within four weeks. Journal of Applied Physiology, June 2021

Chiropractic: Can Foot Pronation Cause Back Pain? In a recent experiment, participants wore special shoes that induced pronation (inward roll) of the foot while walking. This resulted in altered pelvic and hip motion—more specifically, pelvic position was more inclined on the contralateral side during loading phase of gait, there was less rotation of the pelvis to the contralateral leg, and the hip also tended to be more internally rotated—which could contribute to pelvic and lower back disorders over time. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to assess and correct foot biomechanics to promote normal gait patterns. Brazilian Journal of Physical Therapy, May 2021

Mental Attitude: A-Fib Can Affect Cognitive Function. Atrial fibrillation (A-Fib) is a common heart-rhythm disorder that can lead to stroke, heart failure, and other cardiovascular complications. A review of data from 43 studies found that A-Fib is associated with an elevated risk for both vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Journal of General Internal Medicine, July 2021

Wellness/Prevention: Vitamin D Supplement Can Benefit Bone and Muscle Health. Low vitamin D status is
associated with poor bone health and a reduced ability for muscle to repair itself following exercise. In an experiment involving female basketball players with inadequate vitamin D serum levels, researchers found that taking a daily 4,000 IU vitamin D supplement improved their vitamin D status, as well as their bone and muscle health.                                            European Journal of Sports Science, July 2021

Chiropractic: Initial Course of Spinal Manipulation for Back Pain Reduces Adverse Drug Events. A review of Medicare claims revealed that seniors who sought treatment for chronic low back pain in 2013 were 42 times more likely to experience an adverse drug event in the following five years if they initially chose opioid analgesic therapy versus spinal manipulation therapy. The finding supports the use of chiropractic care as an effective first form of treatment for chronic low back pain.                                                                    Spine, April 2021

Mental Attitude: Most People with Alcohol Problems Don’t Get Treatment. Following a review of data concerning over 210,000 American adults, researchers report that only 6% with a drinking problem received treatment. However, the absence of care isn’t because people with drinking problems don’t see a healthcare provider or have never been screened for such issues. It appears that patients are screened but the process ends there. Lead author Dr. Carrie Mintz notes, “People with alcohol use disorders are hitting the health care system,
but we’re missing that opportunity.”                              Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research, May 2021

Wellness/Prevention: What You Can Do to Improve Gut Health. Over the past 20 years, numerous studies have identified an association between gut health and the immune system, mood, mental health, autoimmune diseases, endocrine disorders, skin conditions, and some cancers. To improve one’s gut health, experts recommend the following: manage stress, get plenty of quality sleep, eat a healthy diet featuring plenty of fruits, vegetables, and dietary fiber; reduce intake of processed foods, stay hydrated, take a prebiotic or probiotic, and
avoid foods that upset the stomach.                                HealthLine, June 2021

associated with a reduced risk for chronic disease and painful conditions.                                                                                           Age and Aging, June 2021

Wellness/Prevention: Maybe Colonoscopy After 75 Should Be Recommended? Current guidelines don’t
recommend colonoscopy after age 75, except for patients considered to be high risk for colorectal cancer. However, an analysis of data on colon cancer cases and deaths from over 56,000 patients found that people who had colon cancer screening after the age of 75 had a 39% lower risk of colon cancer and a 40% lower risk of death from colon cancer, regardless of whether they had been screened at an earlier age. The findings suggest that colonoscopy guidelines may need amending.                                                                                          JAMA Oncology, May 2021
