Patient Testimonial: 

 Dr. McManus,


I saw you for the first time on Monday and started implementing the plan (supp-lements/ hormones) on Tuesday after the lab work. By Saturday, I had way more energy than I've had in YEARS, and I could focus and think of words. It's been awesome! I can hardly wait for The Pellet. :)

I started the Yeast Detox yesterday. Nancy is right:  you have to plan, plan, plan -- which I was finally able to do since I had energy & could focus. :)


I can't imagine how much better I'll feel by the end of August.....I'm sure my husband will also be thrilled.

Thank you!


Supplements of the Month: 
(Supplements that support your Immune System)



When it comes to prevention and protection, the following supplements make a great basic arsenal of weaponry to have handy and incorporate them when you sense your immune system is under unusual attack or stress. Depending on the supplement, increasing the amount you are already taking or adding a couple of them into your daily supplement regimen for a number of days can help to bolster the immune system and/or attack germs that have entered the body. Work with your wellness provider here at TWIHW to develop a strategy that will meet your individual needs.

This month is Part III of our three-part series of newsletters dedicated to the overall defense strategy for Your Body Nation.

Defending the Borders 
Part III



This month, we're closing this series by encouraging you to have a strategic lifestyle that protects your Body Nation.  It is proactive and anticipatory in nature.


In military terms, this concept is well demonstrated by the events of 9/11 and the Boston Marathon attack in 2013.  When events like this occur, our governments stop to ask the question, "How did this happen and how do we prevent it from reoccurring?" 


Do you ever look at your health this way?  Do you ask yourself what events occurred that left you exhausted, or with a cold, flu, stomach virus or yeast infection?   And more importantly, what can you do going forward to prevent this from happening again?

Foods that Defend You

by Nancy Mehlert, MS



We usually think of our food as a source of nourishment in the form of protein, carbohydrates, fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Are you aware that there are many foods that have antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties which help to attack and destroy unwanted visitors such as the common cold, disease-causing bacteria, and yeast?
