Facebook Friday & Links That We Love


Happy Facebook Friday!

We know that you probably do not read every story that crosses your Facebook timeline, but luckily here at COD we have a full staff that reads every post, tweet, and watches every video…even if it contains cute dancing kittens. So to save you some time, we decided to have our team put together a roundup of the top posts that will most likely affect your practice and give you the highlights for this week.

Don’t worry, we won’t bore you with any dancing kittens today.

Most of us are constantly looking for a potent source of energy to get us through our hectic week. For many, this comes in the form of caffeine from coffee or energy drinks. This type of fuel has its downfalls however, sometimes in the form of a “crash” mid afternoon, a headache from dehydration, or nausea if the stomach is empty. Beyond all of this, caffeine has a high instance of addiction, whether it be a physical or a habitual dependency. As a replacement for energy enhancers such as caffeine, Maca root has been gaining attention from health conscious consumers not only for its nutritional density, but also for its remarkable ability to replace some of today’s most common pharmaceuticals, including Viagra and Progesterone.

7.  Even Nurses are Taking A Stand Against the Flu Vaccination

Experienced nurses across the United States are choosing to lose their jobs rather than submit to forced mandatory flu vaccinations. This began last flu season, in 2012, and we reported many stories of brave nurses standing up for their rights and refusing to submit to mandatory flu vaccinations as a requirement to keeping their jobs.
