The Progress Club met on Nov. 1 at the Presbyterian Church. Scott Brantley, DC, spoke about chiropractic medicine. Chiropractic medicine has been around three to five thousand years. It is an alternative medicine in today’s mainstream world. The discussion of inflammation, what is the cause, what effects are noted in the body and what can be done about it was very informative and interesting. In our high stress world the effects on the body are very significant and our body is looking for ways to cope. This state is causing all kinds of issues. We use different form of coping. It may be caffeine, alcohol, sugar, medication just to name a few. Diet is a major factor in our well being. Dr. Brantley discussed sugar in the diet, fat in the diet, and the need for certain supplements.
