Patient Testimonial 

of the Month


 from T. M. regarding her HCG program


I lost 33lbs in 40 days! I've struggled with committing to diets in the past and with the support, structure, meal options, and counseling from the staff at TWIHW my confidence was boosted and my expectations were exceeded. Very satisfied with the results and already signed up for a 2nd round!

Product of the Month:  


This powerful protease enzyme blend is designed to be used between meals and is formulated to absorb easily through the intestinal wall, working systemically in the immune system and circulatory system, unlike digestive proteases which are taken with meals to help digest proteins.  Once in the blood stream, these proteases are picked up by white blood cells, which are first responders to oxidative stress and inflammation, in the human body.  When the white blood cells arrive at the site of oxidative stress and inflammation, the proteases are released where they act to break down unwanted and invasive proteins such as excess fibrin, one of the culprits in plaque development. Proteases also can break down obstructive blood clots, promoting healthy blood flow.    In this way, these systemic proteolytic enzymes operate throughout the body to act as antioxidants, immune system regulators and anti-inflammatories.

Reminders about your appointments:

  • For your safety, we require an appointment with your provider at intervals no longer than 6 months.
  • We pride ourselves on keeping wait times to a minimum and we do not overbook appointments.  For these reasons,if you cancel within 48 hrs of your appointment, or if you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, you will be charged for the full price of that appointment.
  • If you haven't been in for a routine follow up visit in over a year, there is an additional fee for an appointment due to the additional time needed to update your chart and review your history since your last visit.

This month we are focusing on (another) serious matter--heart disease in women.  It seems that women's fear of breast cancer supersedes their fear of heart disease, but the above statistic should caution otherwise.

Women and Heart Disease

by Dyvette Warren, PA-C


Why is heart disease the leading cause of death in women? Why are women and men being diagnosed with coronary artery disease at younger ages than ever before? Why has heart disease become so prevalent in the last 100 years?


All women face the threat of heart disease. Becoming aware of the symptoms and risks unique to women, as well as eating a healthy diet, free of processed foods and toxins, and exercising regularly, can help protect you.


Coronary artery disease is caused by plaque forming in the lining of the arterial walls. This plaque is deposited along the arterial walls and can eventually rupture and block blood flow to a part of the heart resulting in tissue death. This is called a myocardial infarction (heart attack). Inflammation plays a key role in arterial plaque formation.


If I have plaque in the arteries of my heart, what symptoms do I look for?


The most common heart attack symptoms in women are pain, pressure or discomfort in the chest; however, it's not always severe and is often dismissed. 


Women are more likely than men to have atypical symptoms that may seem unrelated to a heart issue, such as:

Three Tips to Avoid a Broken Heart

by Nancy Mehlert, MS

If you have not already read our lead article about Women and Heart Disease, I strongly encourage you to do so because it will explain the reasons for our nutrition recommendations.   In our nutrition article today, I am going to get right to the heart of the matter (if you will pardon the expression) regarding nutritional lifestyle changes you can make that your heart will love. Please don't let this underestimate the value of other lifestyle changes including exercise, the quality of your sleep, how you cope with stress, and the health of your relationships, because all of these things are equally important matters of the heart!  We can't exercise our way out of a bad diet or sleep away our worries.  Balance and integration are essential for whole-hearted living and optimal health.  


The overall nutrition strategy for the heart is to reduce oxidation, reduce inflammation, and detoxify.  It is exactly these strategies we recommend for a healthy diet for life!  The human body is wired and designed for a diet rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory foods and plenty of fiber that help to cleanse and detoxify us.  So what are the priorities?
