What do the Healthcare Professionals Say about....Why Body Wise?






What Healthcare Professionals Recommend 
Celebrating 26 Years of Body Wise

Healthcare professionals love Body Wise. Maybe it’s because our optimal nutrition supplements are pharmaceutical grade and manufactured in an FDA licensed facility ... both rare distinctions of excellence in the crowded field of vitamins.

Doctors, nurses, pharmacists and scientists not only recommend Body Wise, but personally use our products every day.

Since 1989, we’ve received so many rave reviews. Here are some we’re happy to share with you!

“…Thank you on behalf of myself and my staff and my patients for providing the very best in state-of-the-art nutritional supplements. Body Wise products provide optimal nutrition supplementation based on documented and well-respected nutritional and scientific research.” Dennis S. Mann, D.O.

“As a former collegiate athlete and busy professional, I had gained 15 pounds during 10 years of career building. Over the past 16 weeks, I have lost 39 pounds, 4 inches in the waist and reduced body fat by 4%. This is exciting!” R. Stephen Jennings, M.D.

“Within ten days, I had lost ¾-of-an-inch around my waist and was on my way to feeling like a new person. But the most impressive thing was the relief from pain I’d had for 15 years… Body Wise has really helped me make my practice more complete. Now I can treat all of my patients more thoroughly.” Clark Zimmerman, M.D.

“As a physician who has spent his career treating disease after it is well-established, it is gratifying to be able to recommend a wellness program that will improve the body’s chances of healing itself and avoiding disease. I’ve been actively recommending the Body Wise program of wellness to my family, friends and patients… Your insistence on being factual and medically and scientifically credible, while focusing on lifestyle changes, as well as using the best manufacturing technology available, is no doubt the reason we see measurable tangible results so often.” Dennis Utley, M.D.

“…Since I began the Body Wise program I have felt an increased energy level as well as increased muscle strength. My once out-of-shape body is now lean and muscular. I have lost 10 scale pounds and a total of 25.75 inches.”  Camille Di Scala, M.D.

“My initial skepticism was soon overcome when I lost 3% body fat and 11 pounds in the first six weeks. Many of my patients complain of weight gain during their recovery from injury. I am now extremely confident in recommending the Body Wise program for fat loss, improved athletic function and optimal healing. I am suggesting that every physical therapist, chiropractor and physician I know take a serious look at this program for the future health and well-being of their patients.”  Paul H. Hasenyager, P.T.

“As an internist and family practitioner, I see the results of poor nutrition and lifestyle choices every hour of my day. After ten years I really searched for a better way to help my patients with wellness, education and nutritional intervention. I was so impressed with the research and formulations that Body Wise had to offer, but the really amazing thing was the results that my patients had in the areas of fat loss and athletic performance.” Jan M. Kief, M.D.

“My patients are writing, calling and personally thanking me for introducing them to Body Wise.” James W. Swim, D.C.

“As a plastic surgeon, I’ve seen extremely gratifying results since implementing the Body Wise products into my practice. I now have all my patients on Body Wise and have watched their quality of life improve tremendously!” Ron Tegtmeier, M.D.

“In the first 30 days on the products I personally dropped two inches across my waist and two across my hips… For me, Body Wise is an extension of my role as a public health nurse practicing preventive medicine.” Linda Pellegrin Porche, R.N.

“I began using Body Wise and have had superb results: 22 pounds of weight loss in seven weeks. Couple those results with outstanding feelings of increased energy, improved mental clarity and good rest patterns, and you sense why I have such personal excitement about Body Wise.”  James R. Matthews, M.D.

“By experiencing the beneficial effects of Body Wise products, I was motivated to incorporate more information about nutritional supplementation into my practice. My patients are impressed by my new approach and are enthusiastic about prevention and the correlation between optimum overall health and oral health.” Hazel J. Harper, D.D.S., M.P.H.

“As I’ve gotten older my body has become stiffer and I had more difficulty keeping up with the younger volleyball players. After my Body Wise experience, all soreness and stiffness disappeared and I have more endurance, speed and flexibility on the court.”Carson Lewis, M.D.

“The results I have seen in my personal life, as well as in others, have encouraged me to not only support Body Wise products but to spread the good news to as many people as possible. Body Wise can help America become a preventive healthcare nation that will: 1) save lives, and 2) reduce the healthcare budget.” Ralph L. Peterson, M.D.

Knowledge is Power!! Be your own best Advocate.

I have had the opportunity to discuss weight loss with a couple different friends this week who had never had a challenge with weight..  When I say there is such a thing as Hormone weight gain they just did not get it...(men).  They are under the belief that you eat less and you loose.  Not always the case... Yes!  there are those that do need to cut back portions.  Yes! There are those that have a romance with food..  Yes!  America is an obese nation.  We have some real issues here in America... but there are also health issues that need to  be addressed...  Knowledge is Power!  

In saying that, my thought is... "why don't people know what to eat to keep the LBS off?"  My answer..."they do know they just don't go there."  Everyone knows when they feel good after what they eat, and when they feel bad after what they eat.  You just have to listen to your body.  And then, do your research, talk to others that are having the same challenges or those who use to have those challenges, that always helps and that is why I am posting this article posted by Mary Shamon below.  

When I took control of my health and weight nearly 20 years ago, there is one thing I knew, no matter how I cut back my calorie intake and no matter how many miles I walk/jog/hike I could not drop the weight.  

The first thing I realized, I needed a quality supplement that will raise my metabolism.  Thankfully I knew instinctively it was not a supplement I could buy from the store...  That is when I went in search of an excellent supplement product..  Thankfully I found Body Wise.  Step one...Complete.

The second thing I realized, I had to be my own best advocate for my health.  I was not getting any help from my doctors so I took to doing my own research.  I spent hours in Boarders books reading Alternative Health Books, Nutrition Books and Medical Books-this was pre-internet.  After spending hours and days and  weeks reading and taking notes I discovered that I was in fact being mis-diagnosed by my doctors.    I already knew that but I need outside proof to convince my doctors that I was Hypo-thyroid and NOT Hyper-thyroid.  

Below is a excerpt from an article on Thyoid.about.com   When I was int he middle of my Hypothryoid, I did my own research, got my meds straightened out...but then found Mary Shomon.  She is very wise with many of the same struggles..  She endorses the natural thyroid just like I do.   I added this article in part to encourage you...  I had a big number to drop off the scale of which I did... 
Knowledge is Power!

Changes in Brain Chemistry
Hunger is intricately tied to your brain chemistry. According to Dr. Aronne, your hypothalamus senses you need energy, and issues the brain neurotransmitter neuropeptide Y (NPY) with the message "eat carbohydrates." The surge of NPY is what you experience as "hunger," Once the hypothalamus senses you've eaten enough carbohydrates, it releases serotonin to tell the body, "enough carbohydrates."
But this system can be dramatically altered by several factors, all of which can be present in chronic thyroid disease:
  • Your metabolism is too slow for the appetite level set by your brain. Thyroid disease slows down the metabolism. What your brain perceives as appropriate food intake levels can then exceed your body's metabolism, creating weight gain.
  • Your body is under stress, which interferes with the neurotransmitter functions, and is known to reduce the release of serotonin. In fact, part of the success of the recently recalled diet drugs fen-phen was the fact that they increase serotonin and create a "feeling of fullness."
Knowledge is Power!
Every sense I have had my weight challenge and my Hypo-thyroid challenge, I have been on a mission to stay informed about my particular health challenges.  Having had Thyroid Cancer almost 40 years ago, I have had a life time of learning and exploring how to stay healthy and maintain my health.  For me, it is exercise, healthy food and Body Wise supplements and education.  I cannot tell you how much more fun I have feel good than what I was feeling when I felt bad.  I love love love feeling good and it is but a memory when I was feeling horrible.  Being on Body Wise Supplements for the past 18 years has made a HUGE difference.  

If you would like to know more how Body Wise supplements and education could make a difference in your health as well, be sure to contact me.

A Super Bowl thought from Nutritional expert, Debbie Powers


Last Sunday 114.5 million people watched the Super Bowl. This number made this sporting event the most watched television program in history. It topped the 2014 Super Bowl, which had previously surpassed the 2012 Super Bowl. In fact, of the top eight most-watched shows in history, seven are Super Bowl games. The only exception is the 1983 series finale of M*A*S*H. Americans love their football. In fact, they love to watch all sports. While munching on wings and chips, they marvel at the athletes’ speed, strength, and agility. They applaud athletes’ dedication and commitment to physical excellence.
These numbers got me thinking……what if that large number of people participated in a sport or fitness activity rather than merely watched?  Or, to be more realistic, what if only half that number were physically active on a regular basis?  What if spectators embraced the same dedication and commitment to physical excellence as the athletes they worship?  Would we no longer be the fattest industrialized country in the world?  (Oh wait, we recently dropped to number two----behind Mexico).  Diabetes rates, health care costs, and heart attacks would plummet if people moved more than they sat and watched.  One doesn’t have to be a gifted athlete to move his or her body!  Unfortunately the number of sedentary viewers remains large…..and, as a result, people are getting larger.     
Debbie Powers is the author of the new memoir Meeting Her Match: The Story of a Female Athlete-Coach Before and After Title IX. She is also an Executive Director with Body Wise International, Assistant Professor Emerita of Wellness at Ball State University, and the co-author of A Wellness Way of Life, 10th ed., McGraw-Hill; A Fit and Well Way of Life, 2nd ed., McGraw-Hill; and A Fit Way of Life, 2nd ed., McGraw-Hill.

Have you seen what is STREAMING today?

This is what is streaming...  Buyer be ware

New York Attorney General Targets Supplements at Major Retailers

The New York State attorney general’s office accused four major retailers on Monday of selling fraudulent and potentially dangerous herbal supplements and demanded that they remove the products from their shelves.
The authorities said they had conducted tests on top-selling store brands of herbal supplements at four national retailers — GNC, Target, Walgreens and Walmart — and found that four out of five of the products did not contain any of the herbs on their labels. The tests showed that pills labeled medicinal herbs often contained little more than cheap fillers like powdered rice, asparagus and houseplants, and in some cases substances that could be dangerous to those with allergies.    CLICK Links to READ more.

This is no surprise to me or anyone who cares about what they take.  I think of those who say, "I take vitamins but I don't see a difference,"  I can say, I USE TO SAY THAT!  Until Body Wise that is....   When I first was introduced to BW I thought is was just another GOOD vitamin with really nice people.  Little did I know they were leading the was in quality and integrity in this supplement industry.  T.T Tierny founded BW back in 1989 with the idea that he could manufacture state of the are supplements founded on science and NOT Hype.  I know to many of my friends and family, I sound like a broken record...but when you know something of such great value, you must share it...Not because of anything else than that you CARE!

Friends and family, please please please stop shopping the box stores for something of such great value to your health and the future of your health.  For me, I have erased many chronic issues...and at this time in my life I am thrilled to say that I have no issues... I had Thyroid Cancer 37 years ago....at the age of 23...you do the math.  No other cancers, and now no chronic issues either.. No flue sense the the 90's... NO flue shot either!

Buyer beware PLEASE!  If you are important to YOU and those that love YOU...Please be educated and do only the best for YOU and YOUR loved ones.

This is so important...  Buyer Beware!
