Club Meeting News - 16 August 2022
President Luke Keighery welcomed guests, Rhonda Miller (she won the Hamper in our reecent Mothers Day Raffle) and her husband Russell Miller and Don Saville from Rotary Club of Orange, and our Club members.
John Bolton toasted the new District Group 2, to which Northbridge belong following the Pilot Regionalisation Project

Peter Russell confirmed details for the Changeover dinner to be held at Northbridge Golf Club on 25 June, and noted tickets would be on sale from the first meeting in June.
Jon Gidney advised that Malcolm Lye has shot to the top of the Footy Tipping table, after judicious use of a joker.
Guest Speaker - Phil Wade, Pharmacist and Health Coach
Maggie Shanahan introduced Phil Wade, a compounding pharmacist of 39 years, health coach, and Rotarian, who runs the Lane Cove Wellness Centre, on the subject of "Mythbusting Chronic Illness".
Among other things Phil talked about:
  • the basic building blocks of the human body - and we have developed from single cell organisms to the billions we have today.
  • How healthy cells are the basis of good health.
He then went on to dispel a number of myths including that:
  1. Chronic disease was mainly genetic
  2. Olive oil was better than cooking with fat.
  3. Eating vegetables gave you sufficient vitamins and minerals
  4. It was impossible to grow back brain cells
There were all wrong.

He emphasised the importance of multi vitamins (and dropped a few hints as to the potential value of Tumeric) highlighting that we each need a balanced intake of vitamins and minerals, as there were limits on how much current agriculture could provide and on how much the body could consume.
Maggie thanked both Phil for for his outstanding talk and invited Phil to draw the Club Raffle, which was won (again) by Peter Grinter.
Luke then closed the meeting by thanking those who had assisted in setting up and managed sign in, thanking our guests for attending and by inviting Mike Cocks to lead us in the national anthem.

With thanks to Kim Wilkins
