Just wanted to say thank you! You have changed my life. Before we started care with you I felt miserable. My whole body was in pain. I never wanted to do anything except sleep all the time. But now I feel so much better then I use to! My pain and jerks have gotten better! The sound and the light sensitivity has also gotten better. I can handle light more and it doesn’t hurt my eyes as bad (more…)
I was struggling with fatigue which had been increasing over the last few years and had come to see Dr. Flannery as recommended by a friend of mine. I had seen my general physician and ruled out any problems that could be detected by her examination and blood tests. I did have elevated cholesterol, elevated blood calcium and early stage osteoporosis and was advised to go on prescription medication to treat these symptoms which I did not desire to do.
From the beginning, I was treated with much care and concern. I was educated by Dr. Flannery (more…)
Initially I was referred to HealthWise because I was so tired. I was on medication for my Thyroid but I wasn’t feeling like myself. I also suffered from severe neck and hip pain for the last 5 years.
I didn’t know how complicated my condition was until I clearly saw my results from my blood tests. Dr. Flannery had a detailed approach to how he handled my condition and now I’m not as tired as I used to be. I can tell I’ve improved and that I continue to improve (more…)
At 27 years old, I was training for a marathon and was in the best shape of my life. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and prescribed medication. At 30 years old, I was diagnosed with Gall Bladder disease and referred to a surgeon. At 40 years old, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroid Disease and prescribed medication. Physicians blamed genetics. But, I thought there was an underlying issue causing these conditions.
I saw many alternative health care professionals (more…)
As a health care professional, I tried effortlessly to find someone that would address my health concerns. Nothing that Western medicine offered was effective. I knew that a pill was not the answer. After many years and thousands of dollars not covered by my insurance I stumbled upon a book “Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms? When My Lab Tests Are Normal” in 2010 by Dr. Datis Kharrazian. My passion is wellness research and I thought I could figure out my body and what it needed, evidenced by multiple supplements, multiple consults, and countless hours (more…)
For many years I knew something was wrong with my body. My fatigue was so unbearable it took everything I had to get out of bed. I had to take naps daily and still couldn’t function! I was gaining a steady 3 pounds a month regardless of my diet and exercise. I had pretty much NO memory and could not retain anything I heard or read. I had many more symptoms, to many to list. I was a mess!!
I began what would end up being several years of research, going to doctor after doctor, (more…)
While I was in college, I was diagnosed with diabetes and put on medications. I was then later diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Not only had I been diagnosed with two serious conditions, I had been losing pigmentation of my skin over a number of years, a condition known as vitiligo. The medication I was prescribed was not correcting my conditions, only managing my symptoms. I grew increasingly more frustrated with my medical treatment.
I had been to a number of medical doctors through this process, but I felt like they could never pin point the problem. (more…)
I truly believe that God directs our path to certain people and I am so glad that he directed me to Dr. Mark Flannery! Dr. Flannery has helped me so much, but let me start from the beginning. I am a mother of two boys and one of my boys has a muscle disease. Since he has been born there has been extra stress on me to make sure his health needs are taken care of all the time. I also work long hours, which complicates things. I wouldn’t eat for half the day and I drank two pots of coffee a day to keep me going. Despite all that coffee I was still tired all of the time. (more…)
I brought my 6-week-old daughter in to HealthWise Chiropractic & Nutrition because I had heard chiropractic care could help with symptoms of colic. She had gas pains and cried everyday for hours. I switched formulas to try to see if that was the culprit, but that only constipated her. Needless to say, I was as tired and cranky as she was! (more…)
I am a mother of a three-year-old boy and pregnant with my second. My first baby was breech and had to be born via c-section. I first met Dr. Vera during a M.O.P.S. meeting where she was educating us on how chiropractic can help with pregnancy discomforts. Also, she mentioned how chiropractic (more…)
