Facts at a Glance
Millions of Americans rely on expert chiropractors, like those at AlignLife, to help alleviate back pain and range of motion. Visiting a chiropractor in Cityname can do wonders for your pain, but it can also be incredibly effective for other maladies:
Chiropractic Care Helps Lower Blood Pressure: Clinical trials show that spinal alignment and manipulation can be as effective at lowering blood pressure as some blood pressure medications.
Chiropractic Care Reduces Inflammation: Studies show that regular care from a chiropractor reduces inflammation in your body. Inflammation can wreak havoc on your body and is linked to cancer and heart disease.
Chiropractic Care Improves Nervous System Disorders: By removing pressure on nerve fibers and increasing blood flow to the brain, chiropractic adjustments are shown to reduce the symptoms of neurological conditions like fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy.
Chiropractic Care Reduces Acute, Chronic Pain: Regular adjustments help alleviate back and neck pain, but they also help relieve pain associated with sciatica. This intense pain stems from a pinched nerve in the spine and can be a chronic condition without treatment.
Chiropractic care offers wide-ranging wellness benefits in addition to back pain relief. A few additional benefits include:
- Immune System Support
- Improved Athletic Performance
- Elimination of Vertigo or Dizziness
- Better Lung Function and Reduced Asthma Symptoms
- Better Balance
- More Flexibility
- Ease Pregnancy Discomfort

MetaLife vs. Other Weight Loss Systems
There are dozens if not hundreds of weight loss programs available today. Unfortunately, many of these systems create more problems than they do solutions. Often outdated and unhealthy, these programs should be avoided entirely if you're focusing on long-term weight loss and improved wellbeing.
Let's break down the many misconceptions associated with popular weight loss programs:
Low Calorie Diets
Reducing calories to very low levels causes your body to go into "starvation mode." It also lowers your metabolism, which limits your body's ability to burn fat. Low calorie weight loss systems often cause the much-dreaded rebound weight gain.
Low Protein Diets
There is no way of knowing if your body is burning fat or muscle on a low protein diet unless you monitor it. MetaLife is the only weight loss system that tests body composition on a weekly basis. This ensures you lose fat instead of muscle, and you keep it off for the long haul.
Low Fat Diets
Low fat diets usually equate to high sugar diets. Diets high in sugar cause weight gain instead weight loss, and increase your risk of diabetes, inflammation, and pain. Low fat diets also cause hormone imbalances which create fatigue, insomnia, mood disorders, and even a lack of sex drive.

Roper St. Francis to double its beds at Summerville hospital; Trident also wants to grow

SUMMERVILLE — Saying its facility was too small from the moment it opened, Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital is seeking to more than double its size.
Roper has the required state license to expand from 50 to 100 beds and add more than 124,000 square feet to its current 116,000-square-foot hospital at 100 Callen Blvd. It will come with a hefty price tag of more than $193 million.
Trident Health also is seeking state permission, known as a Certificate of Need, to add 50 beds at its Summerville Medical Center at 295 Midland Parkway. The expansion would cost more than $62 million. That application is under review by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.
Construction on Roper’s expansion could start as early as November 2023, but its license can be contested by any of its competitors — which would likely lead to a delay. The cost estimate for the expansion took into account inflation and the dramatically rising cost of construction materials, said Chief Administrative Officer Patrick Bosse.
A similar appeal process kept Roper’s Summerville facility from opening for 11 years and is one reason it was too small when it finally began seeing patients in 2019, he said. Since 2010, Berkeley County’s population has grown 33 percent and Dorchester County by 19.6 percent, according to a Post and Courier analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data.
“Obviously the community changed dramatically in a decade,” Bosse said. “We knew that the facility was not built to really accommodate the pace of growth that this area had seen.”
For instance, the emergency room has 14 patient care bays and is designed to handle 40 to 60 patients a day, he said.
“We’re seeing well over 100 a day,” Bosse said, and maxed out at 214 in a single day. “We drastically need a larger ER to enable us to accommodate the volume that we’re seeing.”
The expansion would add 21 new patient bays to the ER to raise the total to 35. As with many facilities, the ER is the “front door of your hospital” because many admissions start there, Bosse said. Adding more beds would allow the hospital to expand a number of other services, from cardiac to orthopedic to general surgery, he said. The expansion also includes four new operating rooms, which would raise the total to eight.
“Really it’s looking at the community, looking at what is coming in through our ERs, looking at community growth and trying to keep people closer to home” for care, Bosse said.
In addition to its new bed request, Trident’s expansion efforts include three new operating rooms to open next year at its Summerville location, bringing its total to nine, and an Emergency Department expansion that includes a 10-bed pediatric emergency room, spokeswoman Kelly Bowen said. Plans also call for adding unfinished space on Summerville’s fifth floor that could be built out in the future as needs expand, she said.

The Summerville Orchestra (S.O.) Woodwind Quintet will perform on Sat., July 9, at 1 p.m. in Charles Allen Ridgeway Park, the town square in Summerton, S.C. Following the hour-long concert by the S.O. quintet, the public will have the opportunity to perform instrumental, vocal or other acts or jams at an open mic that will continue until dusk. Community musicians, current and retired professionals, and student musicians are invited to participate. Cedric Liqueur, event coordinator and development director for the Town of Summerton and himself an accomplished Shakesperian actor and playwright, especially encourages those with hearing and visual impairments to participate in the open-mic performances.
“We’re so excited to host this musical event here in Summerton’s downtown historic Charles Allen Ridgeway Park,” says Summerton’s newly elected mayor Tony Junious. “Arts are essential as the cornerstone of any community.”
The S.O.’s quintet will include clarinet, horn, flute, oboe and bassoon. “It is our mission to spread music and the joy it brings to all, and to have this chance during the summer season is so gratifying,” says S.O.’s music director Wojciech Milewski. “This is a very exciting opportunity for us.”
In addition to musical entertainment, Summerton’s 4 MAIN Events Center, across the street from Charles Allen Ridgeway Park, will feature a solo photography exhibition by professional South Carolina resident photographer Jim Benson.
Chairs will be provided, but guests are invited to bring their own chairs or sit on the lawn. Refreshments will also be available, and there will be an attempt to practice some social distancing.
To reserve a performance slot, contact Cedric Liqueur at firstname.lastname@example.org or (803) 485-2525.
The musical performances plus the photography exhibit are free and open to the public.
The idyllic Town of Summerton has slightly more than 900 residents, and the concert is expected to pull from the more than 31,000 residents of Clarendon County, including the neighboring towns of Santee and Sumter. Summerton is located 8 miles from Lake Marion, and is about an hour from both Columbia and Charleston.
The Summerville Orchestra seeks to share its love of music by engaging and enriching the community through the orchestral art form. The 65-member orchestra performs an annual subscription series of five concerts at the Summers Corner Performing Arts Center, along with free concerts and events throughout the greater Summerville area.

COLUMBIA, S.C. – ...
COLUMBIA, S.C. – Sportsman Boats Manufacturing Inc., a family-owned and -operated maker of saltwater fishing boats, today announced plans to expand its operations in Dorchester County. The company’s $8 million investment will create 75 new jobs.
Headquartered in Dorchester County, Sportsman Boats Manufacturing Inc. produces family-friendly center console boats that feature the latest designs, procedures and materials to offer customers unparalleled performance with a safe and comfortable ride. Operating since 2012, Sportsman Boats Manufacturing Inc. began as a start-up company.

South Carolina offers sunny, affordable lifestyle
Northern winters are cold and dreary, summers full of roadway construction. Of course, we love life on Long Island. But if we’re ever considering a change of scenery, South Carolina hopes you’ll check out what the south has to offer..“We’re getting lots of buyers from the north because of our climate, because of our lifestyle, and because our homes are very affordable,” said Jana Bantz, who runs Jana Bantz & Associates in Summerville, located just outside of Charleston. “People move here because...
Northern winters are cold and dreary, summers full of roadway construction. Of course, we love life on Long Island. But if we’re ever considering a change of scenery, South Carolina hopes you’ll check out what the south has to offer..
“We’re getting lots of buyers from the north because of our climate, because of our lifestyle, and because our homes are very affordable,” said Jana Bantz, who runs Jana Bantz & Associates in Summerville, located just outside of Charleston. “People move here because there’s something for everyone.”
Bantz joined Southern Trust loan officer Beth Greenlee and real estate attorney Michael Browder as part of the RichnerLive webinar series, Herald Inside LI. She gets people love their New York homes, but it doesn’t mean they can’t consider something new — or even something additional — in South Carolina.
It’s a state filled with beaches, in-ground swimming pools, and plenty of flat land considered great for cyclists. Bantz lauded the world-class restaurants and art scenes the Charleston area also offers.
Downtown Charleston is home to high-end real estate with many historical homes dating back to the 18th century. Kiawah, a barrier island southwest of Charleston, is primarily a private beach and golf resort with nearly 40 such courses within 20 miles of the coastal city.
Charleston, James Island, Summerville and West Ashley are among other many affordable suburban areas, all helped with South Carolina’s low tax rates. A property valued at $400,000 could pay as little as $2,000 in taxes each year if treated as a primary property, Browder shared.
“People, especially after the pandemic, are looking for our lifestyle and livability,” Bantz said. “The distance between South Carolina and New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, is only a day’s drive away. Florida is a two-day trip. Being close to family is also a draw.”
And South Carolina’s location eases some of the more extreme weather patterns found in northern states.
“The strong storms are mostly broken up by the breeze of the ocean before they get to the lowland,” Greenlee said. “Thunderstorms will occur more inland, but don’t count on Charleston getting any major tornados.”
“Many of the children in the low country haven’t even seen snow,” Banta said. “So when it does snow, it’s a party.”
Yes, there are hurricanes. Oceanfront homes would need to be secured. Interior areas such as Goose Creek, Moncks Corner and Summerville, however typically only experience rain and wind.
“We get 10 days’ notice before they arrive, so everyone just battens down the hatches and waits for them to go,” Bantz said.
For those who do want to move don’t even have to wait for retirement. Charleston offers a booming job market with high-end employers and top-notch medical services, according to the panelists. Medical University of South Carolina’s Teaching Hospital draws the best and the brightest young medical students looking to serve beach towns, among a plethora of hospitals in Moncks Corner, Mount Pleasant and Summerville.
Anyone getting around Long Island last Friday needed heavy coats and maybe even scarves. But that wasn’t true in Charleston.
“It’s a beautiful, South Carolina day,” Bantz said. “Sunny, blue skies. It’s 72. We broke out our summer wardrobe. Spring is here. Flowers are blooming, birds are building nests. It’s beautiful.”
