In 2008 I visited Dr. Mark Flannery due to my complaint of a repeated acid-reflux disorder that was continually awakening me at night in bouts of great pain and distress. During my consultation, Dr. Flannery suggested that I have a complete blood work-up, which I did. Upon his review of my blood work he became very concerned about my overall health (more…)

Heart Disease / Diabetes – The Unusual Patient Testimony

It took me a while to write this testimonial because I don’t know how to express how much I’m thankful to God for giving me the chance to meet Dr. Flannery and to be subjected under his care. The improvements have all been so overwhelming; I can’t believe that in eight months, I’m now feeling so much better—even better than my “old self.”

At 22 years old, I’ve done so many abuses on my body without even realizing it: training too hard, (more…)

Severe Digestive Problems, Extreme Pain, Fatigue

After receiving the Gardisil vaccination in February, I experienced severe abdominal pain that brought on vomiting, headaches, back pain and high blood pressure. I was in and out of the hospital for a total of 12 days in 2 months while they performed many tests including: blood tests, multiple cat scans, an MRI and other tests revealing no definitive diagnosis.

My sudden illness kept me from completing my schoolwork and I had to eventually (more…)

Gardasil Reaction in Nebraska

There are not enough words for me to be able to fully express my gratitude to Dr. Mark Flannery. It is because of him and the grace of God that I still have my daughter with me today.

My daughter Cassie started experiencing side effects from the Gardasil vaccine immediately after her first injection, but because we were told the reaction was completely unrelated to Gardasil she continued with all three shots. It was after the third and final one that she became seriously ill. Cassie was hospitalized, her symptoms consisted of severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, severe headaches (more…)

Gardasil Reaction in Missouri

I have been injured on the 14th of March 2011 by the Gardasil vaccine. Right after that I started a severe back pain, nausea, total fatigue along with total body pain. At one stage I reached to a level that I lost the ability to walk more than two minutes as the pain was unbearable. This vaccine is the worst thing that ever happened to me. I looked for many doctors but none of them had a clue of what is going on with my body.

Dr. Flannery is the only Doctor who I met that had a clear understanding of how much Gardasil can damage (more…)

Gardasil Reaction in Saudi Arabia

In the middle of June 2009, Ashlie received her first and only Gardasil vaccine. Approximately 16 days later Ashlie began to complain that her legs were not working correctly. Looking back, I am not sure what I thought it was, but I had her take some Tylenol. The next morning, I came downstairs and Ashlie was lying on the couch. She told me that she had crawled from her room and down the stairs to get to the couch. She informed me she could not walk. I asked her to stand. She tried and fell to the floor.

She was quickly taken to our local ER. The doctor threw his hands in the air saying (more…)

Gardasil Reaction in California: Ashlie’s Near-Death Experience

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…)

Autoimmune Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism

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 the 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
spent researching remedies, modalities, which might offer an answer to my health issues. I felt like I was losing my mind and becoming a hypochondriac. I had reached the end of my rope with my weight at an all-time high of 185 lbs on my 4’10 frame along with the list of symptoms that accompany adrenal exhaustion, pre-diabetes, hypertension, high blood lipids, shortness of breath, and too tired to exercise. I felt like a balloon ready to pop. (more…)

Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, pre-diabetes, weight gain

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…)
