Dr Mariana Solangel, M.D. (Former Dr. Manzanares)

Medical Director



Hi!  I'm Dr. Mariana Solangel, M.D., the founder and medical director of DharmaGaia, it's a pleasure to have you here.


While I was an Assistant Professor of Radiology at the University of Miami, I never thought that my life was going to change so much, however, I had an epiphany.  There I was, diagnosing several patients with cancer every day, going through that life-changing experience with these amazing people and their family members, and I realized that the deep motivation that led me to study medicine in the first place, was somehow, unfulfilled. You see, while radiology offers a very refined set of tools to diagnose and treat disease,  I was ready not only to diagnose but to offer the best techniques for true healing while taking into consideration the human being as a whole.


I have traveled and studied extensively to offer a range of modalities for well-being and to treat all kinds of physical and emotional ailments. My ultimate goal is to boost the extraordinary capacities inherent to all human beings, providing healing of the mind, body, and spirit.

My fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona with another wonderful teacher, Dr. Andrew Weil, was the icing on the cake.  This healing-oriented medicine that approaches the energetic, emotional, and physical components of the human being, is in total alignment with my deep calling as a doctor. Through the use of therapies, both conventional and alternative, I'm happy to offer that which will facilitate the body’s (and mind) innate healing response based on good science, but open to new paradigms, using natural, effective, less-invasive interventions whenever possible.

My wish is to keep spreading a healing wave around the globe while bringing awareness to the importance of the connection to our own purpose-self-fulfillment (Dharma) and the harmonious relationship with our planet (Gaia).
