I have suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Environmental Illness for over 20 years. I have seen all kinds of doctors from MD’s to Homeopaths’ to Naturopaths’ and did not see any significant improvement from any of them.

I have progressed further under Dr. Manrique in 3 weeks than I have in the past 20 years under the other doctors.

My digestion, energy, and brain function have all improved tremendously in a short period of time. I have also lost 10 pounds on the special allergy free diet. Dr. Manrique is very considerate of people’s time and money. I think so highly of his ability that my lady is starting with him because of the vast improvement she has seen in me. I would highly recommend any one that has a problem that the regular MD’s can’t fix to come and see Dr. Manrique.

To the White Mountain Area Community:

I appreciate so much the expertise that Dr. Manrique has brought to Show Low and the communities of the White Mountains. He is caring and helpful, but his professional skills and knowledge are abundantly apparent.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in April, 2011 which I suspected at least for a few months. My problem was that I really did not have confidence in any of the doctors who practice conventional medicine. Through a referral from some patients of Dr. Manrique, I made an appointment in March. Dr. Manrique determined that I am also diabetic, recommending a change of diet, along with some lifestyle changes, all of which made a difference in my blood sugar levels, which would definitely affect the situation with a breast tumor.

I’ve gone to numerous doctors and they have all misdiagnosed and over medicated me. Dr. Manrique thinks outside of the box, curing the root cause of symptoms. I’ve had drastic weight loss, better sleep, decrease of muscle cramps, the numbness in my feet has stopped, I have better energy and especially mental acuity. I feel well finally. I have been able to do it all one step at a time for tremendous results. The best part has been reducing my dependance on medication, and some of it was very ‘hard-core’. Thank you so much Dr. Javier!

I am a 66 year old woman, retired after 40 years in the medical profession. I started seeing Dr Manrique about 6 years ago to get treatment for psoriasis & an out of control thyroid condition.

Over the years he has found several underlying conditions that have been affecting me my whole life.

With my experience in the medical field I have been very skeptical & wary of Drs but he has totally changed my life. After treatment for fibromyalgia, hormone & immunity problems, I saw much improvement in how I feel & general health.

“I suffered from debilitating chronic pain in my back, knees, and ankles for years. When I first came to Dr. Manrique back in May I had already tried everything, even steroid injections without success. The pain was constant and unbearable. I could barely walk and my whole body felt swollen. I hurt so bad that I couldn’t sleep at night, even though I took pain pills and sleeping pills.

After only 2 months of treatment and improving my diet, my life has completely turned around for the better. I no longer feel swollen. The swelling in my hands has decreased so much that my rings are now too big and fall off my fingers! Although I still have some pain, it is bearable and no longer prevents me from enjoying my life. I no longer need to take pain pills or sleeping pills. I sleep through the night and wake rested. During the day I feel energetic and can think clearly.

A year ago I made an appointment to see Dr. Manriquie for the following conditions:

I was told by my doctor I needed a surgery on my left shoulder joint, it was painful to move and could not be raised above vertical.

Both knee joints ached was not able to walk much about 3pm each day because of tenderness and swelling at the knee. I was told by my doctor I needed to have both joints replaced.

Back aches and pain.
High blood pressure
Two ingrown toe nails

I am 60 years old and have been a coal miner for the better part of my adult life. While working in the mines I have always worked on heavy equipment mechanicing and welding. The job required lifting and carrying tools and parts that often weights over 125 pounds, there is nothing light weight on large mining equipment. At this point in life I thought that I was worn out and just hoping to work till December 2015, that is when my current contract ends. I had no expectation of renewing my contract due to way I was feeling. The first appointment was made and Dr. Manriquie interviewed me to discuss my aches and pains. After the interview an appointment was made to pull blood samples. Once the blood tests were returned, another appointment was made to review the results of the blood test. During this review Dr. Manriquie told me that my testosterone was way below the normal, as was several other hormones below normal. It was agreed that we would start a hormone replacement therapy, as well as addressing the diabetes and blood pressure. At this point I was thinking that I needed to get my body in balance to get ready for three possibly four surgeries that would be required to fix all of the aches and pains. During the last year of hormone therapy the aches and pain in my shoulder, back and knees are gone. This last month I started walking in the evenings at least 4 times per week, that’s after working a full 10 hour day. I feel so energetic at times I even exercise a little. The stiffness in my joints that has been there for the past 15 years is gone; I can even swing a rope and rope cattle. I have not been able to do that for 15 years. This next year Dr. Manriquie has put me on a weight lose plan to control my diabetes and blood pressure. The way I currently feel, I have the energy, flexibility and strength required to exercise and lose the weight I need to. I am currently in the process of renewing my existing work contract for a least another 3 years, and have expectations of another contract when that one is completed. A side effect of the hormone therapy that I have experienced is my mental state of mind, I feel like I am 35 years old again.

“My husband and I would like to take this time and opportunity to thank you for your knowledge in getting our young son Shi back to normal health. Shi is three years old and started experiencing the beginning of his illness around Aug. 2010. Shi’s symptoms started out gradually getting worse and worse in the months to follow. The first thing we noticed was how drastic his bowel habits changed. He would bowel movement then go from three to seven days without one at all. He would spend about two days per week vomiting all day long, everything he ate or drank. He was loosing his appetite, and when he would eat about 15-20 minutes later, he would scream with pain in his stomach. We then noticed how even on a hot day, Shi was always freezing cold, wanting to wear a coat, or cover with a blanket. We started making regular visits to his then pediatrician, who put him on magnesium citrate and several other over the counter childrens’ laxatives for his bowel problem; along with several x-rays of his abdomen to see whey Shi wasn’t going to the bathroom regularly. The x-rays showed Shi was severely impacted.

“I was very desperate when I first came in. I came in after having been hemorrhaging for going on three months. I had the problem of hemorrhaging on and off for the last 4 year. I was even considering having a hysterectomy to correct the hemorrhaging. I had no energy, and was losing strength, felt light headed and wanting to pass out. I was feeling so bad that Dr. Manrique gave me nutritional IVs to help me while feeling so weak. I noticed the difference in my energy immediately after the IV. Dr. Manrique put me on oral progesterone and Chinese herbs, which stopped the bleeding with in one week.

What a blessing Good Life Health Center has been to me! I am a 38 year old mother of four children. I had been taking anit-depression/anit-anxiety, and insomnia medication for 6 years. I had been to three doctors and a psychiatrist, trying to find a medications that would help my symptoms without giving me horrible side effects. Each time I would go off a medication, I would have terrible withdraw symptoms. The side effects I was having from the drugs seemed to be causing me more and more health problems, but without the drugs I was depressed, anxious and couldn’t sleep. I really just wanted to be healthy. Instead, I found myself taking more drugs to treat the side effects of the original drugs.
