Many local, respected physicians in the Woodlands and surrounding area refer to Body BeneFits for their post-surgery and/or non-invasive body shaping and anti-aging treatments. Listed below are some local physicians that have referred their patients to Body BeneFits since 2000.
Dr. Mila McManus
Dr. Mila Q. McManus was voted Best Doctor in The Woodlands 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017 in the category of Bariatrics and Weight Control!
Mila Q. McManus, M.D., graduated at the top of her class from the University of Texas-Houston Medical School in 2000. She then completed specialty training in Family Medicine at Christus St. Joseph in Houston, TX, and is board-certified in Family Medicine. Dr. McManus has always had a special interest in preventive medicine, but it wasn’t until her interest in alternative and complementary therapies became personal that she decided to leave her private practice to specialize in wellness. She suffered with fatigue, weight gain, headaches, PMS symptoms, depression, anxiety, IBS, severe allergies, and decreased mental sharpness, and also noticed a disturbing trend in the number of patients presenting to clinic with similar complaints. Routine exams and blood work were failing to reveal an underlying etiology for her patients’ symptoms as well as her own.
Dr. McManus went in search of answers and discovered natural ways to treat the root causes of health problems rather than band-aiding symptoms with prescription drugs. She became certified by the American Academy of Biologically Identical Hormone Therapy in 2004 and founded The Woodlands Institute for Health and Wellness where she treats common health problems such as depression, fatigue, weight gain, allergies, trouble concentrating, PMS, headaches, high cholesterol, fibromyalgia, and sleep disorders. Since she’s experienced the benefits of wellness firsthand, her mission is to increase public awareness of natural alternatives to treating health problems. She is also a member of the Texas Medical Association, American Academy of Family Physicians, American Medical Association, Pan American Allergy Society, and has board certification through The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. She has been featured on episodes of Great Day Houston and The Business Makers Radio Show and published her book Highway to Health: A Nutritional Roadmap in 2008. Dr. McManus has also published health related content in various magazines. And she and her husband, Lyle, are class coordinators for Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University.
