The medical industry took a serious wrong turn a century ago when it was taken over by the pharmaceutical industry and again 75 years ago when it became wedded to the insurance industry. There is a better way. These are challenging times. But there is real science to help us solve complex health problems without the use of drugs and surgery. I am here to help you find that way for yourself and those you care for.

MIND, MOOD AND MEMORY

New developments in understanding neurotransmitters and genetics can help us find non-toxic answers to many brain related problems.

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • OCD
  • Dementia
Abdominal Pain

ABDOMINAL PAIN, INDIGESTION

Solving digestive problems can be a big relief but can also head off many serious health problems. You can recover, in most cases quite quickly. And by correcting gut issues many other symptoms often resolve.

  • SIBO,Constipation and Diarrhea
  • Stomach acid – high or low?
  • Food intolerance, allergies
  • Bloating, gas, indigestion
Autoimmune Diseases

AUTOIMMUNINE DISEASES ARE AN EPIDEMIC

  • Autoimmunity can affect virtually any organ or system including the brain.
  • Thyroid – 90%+ of all thyroid diseases in America are autoimmune, taking hormones is often not enough.
  • Gluten intolerance. Celiac disease and many under diagnosed digestive issues
  • Joint pain and swelling – arthritis is an autoimmune condition
  • Chronic spinal disc herniations – at least 15% are autoimmune.

23andMe, MTHFR, GENETICS

Do you have your 23andMe genetic report and can’t make sense of it and don’t know where to go.  I have extensive experience interpreting genetic data and applying it to your specific health issues. Genetic data is now available at a reasonable price, but making sense of it is not always simple. The good news is that in most cases we can modify the effects of genetic variants.

  • Feeling down or out of control? It could be genetic.
  • I have studied with Ben Lynch of Seeking Health methylation courses and conferences.
  • OCD, Depression, Anxiety – there are often non drug solutions.
  • Allergies and asthma are often a sign of methylation defects.
  • Infertility, miscarriage and birth defects can be due to genetic methylation issues.

Mold

MOLD AND MYCOTOXINS

“Mold is the new Lyme disease.”  If you’ve been exposed to living or working in a moldy environment you probably know what I mean. Mold and mycotoxins can cause many symptoms and few doctors know how to recognize or treat them adequately.

WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?

Functional medicine applies the tools of conventional medicine – scientific research, lab findings, genetic testing, etc. – and applies it to your health in order to find the underlying causes of your health condition.  For example, if your medical doctor finds you have high blood pressure, you will most likely be put on a drug, often for life.  The functional medicine doctor asks “why?” What is the mechanism and is there a way we can work with the body to correct the imbalance? And in most cases there is a solution.

“FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE is the future of conventional medicine–available now. It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms.” —Mark Hyman, MD

When I first came in to Dr. Manlove I was in a walker – I couldn’t stand up.  I was in such a bad mood.  It was pretty bad.  I had gone to other doctors to sit and talk which cost me $400, and nothing would get done.  In the first four minutes, Dr. Manlove had diagnosed me.  He said we can turn the lead into gold, and we did!.  That meant a lot to me.  He was willing to take me on and figure it out right now and get it fixed.  He said, “It can be done.”  Now I feel SO MUCH better.

Thank you Dr. Manlove for this informative, interesting and well done newsletter…. together with your effort in it.   My back continues to be without  pain thanks to the treatments. You took care of me when I was so debilitated.  Thank you. – M.N.
For the past 10 years my back has prevented me from lifting more than 10 lbs.  I couldn’t stand for more than 5 minutes.   I couldn’t walk 500 yards without sitting down.  My back even hurt when I used the inversion table.  I also felt like I had stones in my gut.  I was having wild mood swings.  Dr. Manlove discovered that I was gluten and hi fructose intolerant.  He corrected my spine with adjusting, posture and using inversion.  Yesterday, I walked 3 straight miles and never felt it in my back.  I can now easily lift 60 lbs over my head.  I have lost 4” off my waistline.  Besides inches, I lost weight (without dieting) while eating more food than I had been.  I have increased muscle mass.  I feel SO much better and my MOOD IS STABLE!  Thank you Dr. Manlove.  I brag on you guys to everyone.

I have never been to a chiropractor like Dr. Manlove.
He just does the most incredible adjustments.  I wish I lived closer!
SM – Lummi Island, WA
I have been to other chiropractors, and I’ll tell you what, nobody I have ever gone to can adjust me like Dr. Manlove.  The first time I came to his office I had been suffering with chronic low back pain and now I can do things I couldn’t do for years.  Every time I leave his office after getting an adjustment I feel a tingling down my spine like I had just had a massage.  I feel SO much better now.

When I first came and saw George, I had a disc herniation in my neck.  I came to him after suffering with it for 7-8 weeks.  I’m a tough guy and was powering thru the pain. The lack of sleep and constant pain caused me to break down emotionally.  I fell down to my hands and knees one night and prayed to god to make the pain go away. It was then that a friend referred me to Dr. Manlove.  Through many treatments over a period of time as well as his guidance as to how to live a more healthy life, Dr. Manlove has helped me to achieve a full recovery which I still enjoy today.
-JC, Chapel Hill, NC
I have been going to chiropractors for 15 years.  After adjustments,  I would feel good for 2 days and then I would go back to where I was.  Dr. Manlove is the first chiropractor that has helped.  He has taught me self-care techniques such as: Being conscious about my posture;  Using an inversion table;  Delaying exercise until my condition gets stabilized. I have a quicker recovery time, feel better after adjustments for weeks and feel like I am maintaining consistent health. I finally have hope.
-SF, Chapel Hill. NC
I can’t believe how great I feel.  It’s been months since I’ve been pain free.  I’m very pleased.
-B.R., Chapel, Hill, NC
Dr. Manlove is very good at “listening carefully and hearing what I’m not saying, what I would like to be able to say, what for survival I need to say but what I can’t say.” From poem by Chas C. Finn.
-DS, Raleigh, NC
He has helped me a lot, basically with aging.  As my body gets older I want to keep it strong and do the same things I did when I was younger.  Thanks to Dr. Manlove and regular exercise, I am able to do that.
