Did You Know About Acronyms to Help in Getting Well?

Did you know acronyms to help in getting well?

My husband was telling his mom about how to get over his shin splints-RICE. This is an acronym used a lot in getting over sports injuries. It stands for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. Then his mom shared one with us. It is to help remember what to feed a kid who's had vomiting and diarrhea. Her acronym is BRAT. Not that the kid is being a brat by being sick! It stood for bananas, rice, applesauce and toast. I've always thought acronyms are a great way to remember things!
