Dr. Gwinnup is such a blessing! I went to see him after two consecutive miscarriages at 6 weeks. My OBGYN told me that this was within the normal range and they would not start any testing until after a 3rd miscarriage so I called |Dr. Gwinnup!

During my allergy testing, Dr. Gwinnup quickly discovered that I have a hormone allergy. After a series of two NAET treatments, he de-sensitized me from the hormones. I got pregnant again within a few months and now am so happy to report to him that I am 15 weeks and in my 2nd trimester! My husband and I are SO excited about our new addition. I'm so thankful to have found Dr. Gwinnup. It is such a shame that the medical industry does not embrace alternative care because IT WORKS!

Thank you again Dr. Gwinnup!

My initial reason for contacting Dr. Gwinnup in November 2010 was a serious case of plaque psoriasis on both elbows. They were raw, bleeding and unsightly. I had to wear either long-sleeved shirts throughout the summer or cover up both elbows with several large bandaids per elbow. I had no success with the various steroid creams prescribed by several dermatologists that I had seen over the past five months. If anything, the creams seemed to exacerbate the condition; I also knew deep inside me that stuff could not be good for my immune system. (Even getting more vitamin D from 15 minute exposure to the sun each day did not help.)

In addition to the above, I also had a maddening case of vertigo (dizziness) and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). I found it difficult to relax or even sleep at night because of such distractions. I previously had consulted an otolaryngologist (ENT) physician who performed a comprehensive exam. He could find no reason why my ears were ringing. The audiologist with his practice said my hearing was in the top ten percentile for my age group. That was good news but still did not help me with my problem. I left his office feeling even more frustrated than when I came in.

At my first office visit, Dr. Gwinnup listened to the list of my concerns. He then ordered some labs and performed allergy testing to get a better feel for what was going on with me. Treatment ensued from that point consisting of spinal and cervical adjustments and allergy reprogramming to help alleviate my symptoms which stemmed from hormonal imbalances, food allergies, and a case of candida. I noticed dramatic results within the next six weeks. My vertigo disappeared and the tinnitus lessened a lot. You can handle every day activities a lot better with a decent night sleep! And my family and friends cannot believe the improvement to my elbows. I now proudly show them off to people who remember what they used to look like. Now I can even wear short-sleeved shirts without embarrassment (if the weather allows for it).

My next challenges will be to combat a case of candida and osteoporosis. Due to the spinal and cervical adjustment I have received, I am now able to go to yoga class which is of benefit to people with osteoporosis. (I tried yoga back in October but my balance issues along with the need for spinal/cervical adjustment prevented me from receiving any benefit from the postures.) I am optimistic as to the outcome of treatment for these conditions as well. I am in control of my body again instead of allowing it to control me. I am in tune once again to my inner process with the help of Dr. Gwinnup.

Thank you!

We found Dr. Bruce on the Internet as a NAET practitioner. We had tried many various allergy elimination protocols and were intrigued by a technique that did not use needles. Sounding too good to be true, we called and asked for an appointment.

At the time we found Dr. Bruce, our 5 year old son, William was not talking, had little or no receptive language, was extremely hyperactive, had poor eye contact, and exhibited many of the usual characteristics associated with autism. Dr. Bruce was willing to help us help William. He recommended NAET. William did respond to the NAET, and was subsequently cleared for 100's of allergens.

As time went on, we wanted to try chelation therapy for suspected mercury toxicity. Dr. Bruce faithfully guided us through this journey being available to us night and day as we were "out on the frontier," as he affectionately referred to what we were doing. Not many people had done chelation with children, and we became very much a team in figuring out what we were doing. Again, William responded getting closer and closer to the recovery we so eagerly sought.

There were times along the way when William or his sister, Brittany would become sick from a cold or virus. "Meet me in my office in 3 hours," he'd say. We'd load up from Aiken, drive to Charleston, and Dr. Bruce would clear the cold or virus.

Our whole family has benefited from Dr. Bruce's care. My husband, John had terrible problems associated with allergies his whole life. Imagine his delight just this past weekend in being able to not only walk in scent filled Bath and Body Works, but to be able to let Brittany purchase and bring into our home a spiced apple scented candle for Mother's Day. NAET did work wonders for John as well.

Autism affects each victim differently. Traditional medical therapies do not yield the results we were seeking. Therapies that work with one autistic person might or might not work with another autistic person. We tried many different therapies with William. Some therapies worked, and other therapies did not. Dr. Bruce helped us pull the results we had together in a way we could understand and benefit from. His holistic approach helped us get to the root causes of our son's illness.

William is presently 10 years old. Combined with strict nutritional interventions and appropriate academic support, William has overcome all of the deficits he had when we first met Dr. Bruce. William's language continues to develop, and he is well beyond the ravages of autism. Dr. Bruce provided integral tools and information to help restore William's health.

One year ago I came to Dr. Gwinnup with headaches I had for 20 years. My headaches seemed to be getting worse and were interfering in my family life. After allergy testing, clearing and spinal adjustments my headaches decreased in both frequency and intensity. I was thrilled and felt like I had my life back.

During the same time my baby Joe, who has Down Syndrome, was learning to move and interact just like any other child – only slower. However, as he approached his first birthday I noticed other children with Downs seemed to be progressing quicker than Joe motorically. He was also often fussy and didn't seem alert or motivated to play. A circus could come through the room and Joe wouldn't care. He didn't reach for toys. The only things he really cared about were food and people. In addition, he had a rash on and off since birth. His therapists and I kept saying "what are we doing wrong, we are missing something." I knew there was more going on in his little body than Downs. Finally, at age 20 months, I brought Joe to Dr. Gwinnup. Dr. Gwinnup tested Joe for allergies and cleared those he found. He also performed spinal manipulation. The next day the rash he had all of his life disappeared. Three days later after practicing crawling for one year he began crawling!! Joe started communicating and reaching for toys. He is so much happier now with continued treatment and diet modification. I feel like we gave him a new life. I tell everyone I see Dr. Gwinnup's treatment in hopes that they will also search out ways to solve their physical problems and empower themselves with a life full of good health.

NAET Really Works…In Ways I Did Not Even Expect

I had reached a point in my life where I truly believed that I was suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I had no energy and all I wanted to do all of the time was sleep. I was also suffering from chronic cystitis…Two to three weeks out of every month I felt like I had a urinary tract infection. I felt so bad that I was contemplating taking a leave of absence from work so that I could concentrate on my health.

A family member had told me about Dr. Gwinnup's holistic approach to health care. Since I had already been to several conventional doctors about my problems, I decided to give the holistic approach a try. I admit, I was very skeptical about the MSA and NAET processes. My initial treatments dealt with clearing conflicts that I was having within my own body…I was "allergic" to some of my own hormones and cholesterol!! After three visits I had a significant increase in my energy level and my cystitis was gone!

…Another problem I had been having, that I did not connect in any way to the ones mentioned above, was infertility. Although able to conceive, I had miscarried several times in the first trimester. After going through the NAET, I have since conceived and carried two babies to full term. I truly believe that the conflicts my body had with some of its own hormones was a root cause for my previous miscarriages.

Holistic approaches, in specific NAET, have been a blessing in many ways for my family and me.

Thank God For Dr. Gwinnup!

I feel so fortunate to have Dr. Bruce Gwinnup as my doctor because he truly cares about my health and how I feel. While most other doctors are only concerned about prescribing some drug to cover up aches and pains, Dr. Gwinnup instead treats the source of the aches and pains to eliminate them altogether. What a novel approach- and it works!

In the three years that I have been his patient, Dr. Gwinnup has done wonders for me. My sinus infections are all but gone, my blood pressure is lower, my bladder infection is gone – I could go on and on. I am so much more in tune with what my body is telling me every day thanks to what Dr. Gwinnup has shared with me about the effects of allergies.

What I appreciate so much about Dr.Gwinnup is the passion that he has for what he does. Now if I can just get him to move down here to Louisiana ------

I came to Holistic Care of Charleston hoping to clear my skin of cystic acne and severe allergies. In just 3 weeks my skin has completely cleared and I have not taken any allergy medicine during this this three week treatment time. I feel the best I have felt in years! Everyone needs to make a visit to Dr. Gwinnup in my opinion!

Dear Dr. Gwinnup,

I would like to thank you for all that you have done. The combination of chiropractic care and NAET has greatly improved my quality of life. My sugar cravings and allergenic reaction to my dog's flea medication in addition to other allergies have been greatly improved if not eliminated. The chiropractic care I have received has released tension in my body as well as improved my posture. Finally, I would say that your treatments have reduced my Candida to manageable levels. And you do it all with such a passion!

Thanks again,

Curt M.

Dear Dr. Gwinnup,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of the help you have provided me over the past few years. You have really helped make a difference in the quality of my life.

When I first came to see you, living on Sudafed, I was looking for some relief because I knew that taking anywhere from eight to twenty of these pills each day was not a good idea. However, I had tried prescription medication and they all put me to sleep. When I tried not to take the pills, the sneezing was intolerable and the drainage would give me an upset stomach. The little red pills at least allowed me to function at work. While I was looking for an alternative to all those pills, I never dreamed I could be pill free as I have now been for years.

Thank you again! If I can ever be of help to someone considering the NAET treatment, please feel free to pass along my name and phone number.

Dear Dr. Gwinnup,

This letter is to express my appreciation for your incredible help in improving my health. For many years I have had multiple allergies and was barely managing to function through a normal day of work. I was also overheating very easily which made my life miserable most days and limited my activities. To try to alleviate my symptoms I was taking high doses of three anti-histimines which masked some of the symptoms, but definitely didn't cure the problem.

I had heard good reports about your work from a co-worker and decided that I had nothing to lose and everything to gain by visiting you. The allergy testing you did was really comprehensive, which took all the guesswork out of it, and within three weeks of my first visit you had treated me for many of my allergies. You warned me that it might take 6-9 months for me to see significant improvements, but within two months I was no longer overheating, a change that has transformed my life! I have lived with gastrointestinal pain for about 20 years and that has also disappeared and I have found that I can eat foods that I haven't eaten in over 5 years, with no ill effects. These were incredible changes in just a few weeks and months later, I'm feeling even better!

I have also suffered from a bad back for many years which was made worse by the stress of constantly feeling ill. I've seen many chiropractors for treatment over the years but you are by far the best and areas of my back that have been locked up for years are now moving freely.

My only regret is that I didn't find out about you sooner but better late than never! You have my heartfelt thanks for making me feel better than I've felt in years!
