Patient Testimonial 
of the Month

from D.W.

My teenage daughter is a very happy patient of The Woodland's Institute for Health and Wellness. My family had already made a few diet changes at our home and were all noticing positive differences but my teen still had problems with rashes, moods, sleep, and focus. First, my teen stopped being confused and stressed over school work and sports 2 weeks into the yeast cleanse. She always did well in school and sports but it seemed to be more of a stressful struggle. Now she laughs more, feels better, smiles a lot, moods are great, less fatigued, and is doing better in sports and school than ever before. And the rash has disappeared. Weekly complaints of joint pain are no more. My entire family is very grateful for these amazing changes, all made possible by the wonderful team and nutritionist at The Woodland's Institute for health and wellness. You guys are amazing!!

Emotional Eating
by Nancy Mehlert, MS

Emotional eating is not an easy topic.  Like other aspects of our lives that can become a slippery slope to abuse, such as drugs, alcohol, and credit card debt, emotional eating can be a problem we don't want to face, much less talk about. Though very socially acceptable, like other addictions, it is not a sustainable habit. It's also very difficult to stop since we do have to eat to sustain life, whereas, for example, we can completely abstain from alcohol when on the road to recovery so as not to be tempted.  The consequences of emotional eating are many and include inability to lose weight and keep it off, obesity, diabetes, depression, high blood pressure, sleep disturbances, fatigue, brain fog, dependence on stimulants and depressants, low self-esteem and so much more.   Most of us have no idea how it started or when we became emotional eaters.

Employee of the Month:
 Sandra Caldwell, PA-C


Every month at The Woodlands Institute for Health & Wellness, we celebrate one member of our awesome team.  This month, we are celebrating Sandra Caldwell, PA-C, and all that she brings to this practice.  

Sandra joined The Woodlands Institute for Health and Wellness 8 years ago as a healthcare provider and is also a member of our management team, overseeing the medical staff.  Everyone on our staff will tell you that Sandra is an anchor for us in so many ways.  She is always the calm one amidst the stormiest times and to all offers a much needed word of encouragement, compassion and sensibility.  She often fills the "mom on staff" role when we need a mother's tender care and she is as endearing to children as to the elderly.  Selfless and loyal, she is especially good at listening, recognizing the needs of others and offering wise counsel and education. 





is proudly serving our patients and their pets!

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.

 
In Good Health,
