My body is just different, in a very good way! First time in a long time, I have hope I could truly heal. Thank you for your patience with me and not letting go of my hand.”

“I show no signs of Scleraderma in my bloodwork. I am now off of prednisone. I am so thankful God lead me to your office. You and I remember how bad my health was. Thank you for your many prayers you prayed over me while I was in your office. I am a living testimony of the goodness of God.”

“I am a dermatologist and have suffered from severe seasonal allergies my whole life, and mild eczema and headaches as an adult.  I have tried everything, including years of allergy shots.  I have done extensive research for years, and finally landed on your website’s advice about eliminating animal protein.  I am absolutely amazed at the results.   No more headaches, fatigue, eczema, facial swelling, sinus issues.”


“Manso has been incredible. [My wife] was seeking advice from a rheumatologist, neurologist and had gone through a couple of each (all while seeing Manso). For several weeks, even months no one had any sense of where to go. Just treating symptoms and changing cocktails. A high dose of steroids was all that would give her relief, which can be dangerous long term. Then something broke…. Manso said he had figured it out. She has Hashimoto’s disease…. Basically an obscure hyperactive thyroid issue that attacks your autoimmune system. It can manifest itself in many ways and can be debilitating. At that point he had some very specific treatments for her. She made the decision to go with his advice and stopped seeing everyone else. Pretty easy decision since no one else had any idea other than treating symptoms. So about 2 months ago she started taking a ton of different supplements, herbs, etc probably like 30+ pills a day. She has phased the steroids down to a reasonable level and continues to reduce them as instructed. She is back to normal and sees Manso to discuss long term strategies and status every few weeks. He says this should correct itself with care and she is doing awesome. She loves this guy.

So ok I will be honest we were desperate and I am not the guy that typically embraces non convention. But holy cow this guy saved charlotte for me and the boys. It is unreal. I have thought about emailing you on many occasions but I am never at a spot to do it when I think of it. I hate you had to reach out to me. Thanks so much for your friendship, advice and most importantly prayers. I feel like they had as much to do with this as anything.”
