Testimonial from Mrs. MN:

I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you the physical state that I was in before meeting Dr. McManus.  I was housebound and incapacitated from working an 8-5 job or any job for that matter.  I was on numerous medications and was suffering from so many things such as low thyroid, no hormones replaced in my body from a complete hysterectomy 4 years earlier.

Highlights of this article:
  • If you keep doing what you're doing, you'll keep getting what you're getting
  • Medical bills are the leading cause of bankruptcy in the US.
  • Invest in Yourself.  It's the best investment!

I like new stuff. You know, new tennis shoes, the latest cell phone, the smartest and most efficient new anything from cars to kitchen utensils. Some of us like to buy someone else's old stuff because it is new to us.  Everything has a price, and, with few exceptions, loses value over time. Even spending our hard earned dollars on a great vacation can offer only momentary fun and fast fading memories.  In most cases, the generally accepted solution to a problem is to simply go buy another one. We like stuff!
What if there was one very essential thing in life that was depreciating every day and could not be replaced? When you first get this thing, it is intended to last a very long time.  It's the most valuable asset you have and, without it, relationships, living, loving, serving and prospering are not possible. We all have one! You guessed it... your body.   So why is it so hard for us to invest some of our hard earned money into preserving and maintaining it?  The human body, when properly maintained and cared for, provides the vessel through which the best of life occurs.  There is no "stuff" that can give longevity, energy, focus, productivity, relationships, joy and a legacy the way the human body can. We have all heard the great truth and many of us have lived it and that is "when you have your health, you have everything".

Eating Well on a Budget
by Nancy Mehlert, MS

It's not uncommon to hear new patients say "Eating real whole food sure is more expensive!"  But is it really?  Here is a list of ways to reassess how you spend your hard earned dollars and how to save money, eat well and live well in the New Year.  Happy New Year Everyone!

First Take a Good Assessment - It's often an eye opener when you get a good handle on what you're truly spending on your food.  Often we are only considering the grocery bill.  But have you totaled up eating out in restaurants, ordering delivery, quick purchases of food or snacks, or accounted for every bottle of water, or tea or coffee you purchase on the run?  You may be surprised how much all of that adds up.  When you get an eye on that number you may discover you have plenty of food dollars and that it's just a matter of how you allocate it.

Employee of the Month

Jayde Steer serves as the Office Manager at TWIHW. She brings to her role 9 years of healthcare experience including patient care, office administration, and work as an EMT on an ambulance. She is also an avid roller derbyist and served in the U.S. Army Reserves.  As a result, she can take the heat, the pressure and the pace of a busy office while authentically engaging in relationships with co-workers and patients.  She is admired for her ability to juggle multiple duties while always remaining composed, patient and diplomatic.  Never satisfied with the status quo, for herself or this practice, she has a consistent thirst, always growing in her skills, improving processes, solving problems and finding the "next thing" to master or do both personally and professionally.  We all admire her humility and authentic way she encourages and listens to us and patients. She is smart and witty and you can be sure if she doesn't know the answer (which she usually does!), she will get it.  And it is impossible to omit that her nature is sweet and huggable too!  

In Good Health,
