75: Creating Your Dream Reality with Dr. Victor Manzo

In our self-care journey, it’s important to take care of every single one of our bodies (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual). My next guest addresses this topic beautifully. Dr. Vic Manzo is a business mindset coach, chiropractor, author, speaker, and podcaster. This episode bridges the gap between science and spirituality and speaks to the incredible healing power chiropractic care can have on your mind and body.

Think meditation is hard? Do me a favor, take a slow deep breath in and now breathe out. Congratulations, you just meditated. Hi, I’m Krystal Jakosky, and this is Breathe In, Breathe Out: a Weekly Mindfulness and Meditation podcast for anyone ready to own their own shit and find a little peace while doing it.

Krystal Jakosky:    Hello and welcome to Breathe In, Breathe Out. I am Krystal Jakosky and I am so excited for this week’s episode. I got to chit-chat with Dr. Vic Manzo, who is a business mindset coach, a chiropractor and author, a speaker, and a podcaster. We had such a good time talking. We went over so many different topics. We talked about the fact that there are no rules in life, except the ones that you create. We talked about how he was able to combine spirituality and science in his life. And in his chiropractic, we talked about to be, do, and have, and how we’re all doing it backward. If you switch that around, life is so much better. And we also talked about what the matrix is and how we can improve our life, by using the matrix and using our own visualizations and life. I really hope that you enjoy this episode as much as I did so without further ado, hello, and welcome back to Breathe In, Breathe Out. I am Krystal Jakosky, your host, and I’m thrilled to have you here. Not only that, I am thrilled to have Vic Manzo here with me today. Hello and welcome.  

Vic Manzo:    Thank you for having me. I’m really excited to be here, to dive into our combo.  

Krystal Jakosky:  Yeah, we’ve already been chitchatting a bit about cryotherapy, so we are going to dive deep into just some fun stuff. We’re going to go wherever the energy and urge the universe sends us today, which is absolutely the way I love to do these kinds of things. So I want to start out, tell us about you. What brought you to this point in your life?  

Vic Manzo:    Whew. Love this question. Loaded question. Yes. I’ll try to keep this very short.  My background is I’m a chiropractor. I’ve been a chiropractor for 12 years. I’ve been certified P for the last little over a year now. And, um, been, but I’ve been pediatric-focused for the last five. So that’s been a passion of mine. Health has always been something that I was very passionate about. Maybe I had a fear of diseases and things like that as a kid. So I wanted to, you know, avoid at all cost. My mom’s a health and fitness instructor and yoga instructor. She’s been doing that police fitness for the last 37 plus years. And she’s always gone to a chiropractor. I went to him when I was a kid, but one thing I was conditioned and thought was that’s what health is because I saw my mom doing this.  

What I saw a lot of people doing was supplements, nutrition, and eating well. And then exercise. So I was like great. At 13 years old, I was always told I was a Husky kid. My mom’s like you’re Husky. I thought what does that mean? Like, that’s not overweight, but that’s not slim and fit. So where are we at with this? I never liked that term. And then my wife laughs about it all the time. She’s like your mom called you Husky. I’m like, yeah, she called me Husky. They had they were called Husky. But long story short at 13, I was like, mom, I wanna learn how to have a six-pack. I just kept seeing magazines about this and I want to learn. You said I have a natural belly, which is another thing I don’t understand.  

So  I told her that I wanted to learn how to do this. So that’s where I started taking supplements. I started doing, changing my nutrition and I started exercising. I did that for six, or seven years. And it was absolutely amazing until I was 19 and I was playing rugby for Arizona state. My health was declining even though my diet was way better than the average college student. I was taking supplements and I was working out really, really well and it just didn’t make sense to me. You know, eventually, I went to a chiropractor, and all of a sudden my whole life turned around and I actually got in the best shape ever, which was weird because nothing changed. So that was what developed me, and I got into chiropractic. Because I wanted to help people, you know, have freedom.  

Because I felt like when I saw my own self and when my health was declining, it wasn’t major. I didn’t have a disease or anything, but it was just a lot of knowing things that just didn’t make sense, and to have a disease and have conditions you’re in a prison in some way, shape, or form And I just I felt like I wanted to help empower people and teach them what health was really about. When I started understanding chiropractic, it was just like a whole nother world that I was just like, are you kidding me? I think I found something that’s the basis of what helps an individual thrive because a lot of times in society, we think of that as something physical, but chiropractic is beyond the physical. There are even metaphysical properties to it.  

And it’s one of those things where it helps the individual just adapt to their environment better. So that was my passion. But getting to where I am today as a mindset coach, I was always intrigued by or wanted to understand more about why people suffer. Why don’t, why is it that some have nothing and some have everything? Why are some athletes absolutely amazing at something? And why are some athletes absolutely not? I came from a blue-collar family, so I didn’t have a lot of toys. I didn’t have a lot of video games. I had to pay for some of mine. Most of them actually, and I had to save up money to do it because my parents just didn’t have the money.  They lived paycheck to paycheck and it was one of those things where I told my mom at 12, I’m gonna figure out this thing called life.
