LifeWorks Wellness Center Blog

Lifeworks Wellness Center is one of the top alternative medicine clinics in Tampa Florida. Since 1997 we've helped thousands of patients regain their health naturally.
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.

Billion Dollar Drug Industry

Dr M

In case you haven't noticed, or realized it, drugs, both legal and illegal are the scourge of modern society. They are making cripples and zombies out of vast numbers of our citizens. And now as a cherry on this insane cake, in Florida, we have a new constitutional amendment to legalize another mind altering/brain damaging drug. Yes, I know this drug well. I was a child of the 60s and smoked/ate my share. But it is damaging and almost never good. Yes, there may be a few medical uses, but honestly in my experience, that's VERY rare.

We Are Here to Help

Dr M

I saw a patient today who I have not seen in over a year. She had come for two visits. I greeted her warmly and she gushed that when she was following our treatments, she was the best she had been in years. No fatigue, no brain fog, no depression. Now it was all back with a vengeance.

Statins and Your Health

Dr M

Whether you have been directly affected or not, many state legislators and the FDA have been requiring children and students at both a high school and college level to receive vaccines as a mandatory requirement. No vaccine = no admit to school.

If these vaccines were actually safe and efficacious, it maybe could be justified. Unfortunately, the scientific evidence shows they are neither.

Statins and Your Health

Dr M

Did you know that one out of four people over 45 are taking statins? This may be as many as 20 million people. This is despite the fact that there is almost a complete lack of benefit. It’s the emperor has no clothes but no one will report it and family practice doctors and cardiologist have blinders on so they can’t see.

It has been reported elsewhere on the various known harms herehere, herehere, herehere, herehere, at least.

Strawberries & Pesticides

Dr MI myself found in experimenting recently, eating 2 cups a day of frozen non-organic strawberries for 30 days and my pesticide levels went 10 x above normal. That is the last I’ll ever eat of those foods.

Healthy bodies require healthy food. Food by definition is used by the body for fuel or structure. If it contains poison pesticide residues, or GMO material, or added preservative, artificial flavors and colors, then it’s not food. So say no to it and eat something healthy. For further reading, see our Nurse Practitioner, Jennifer’s article in this issue.

There is no health without a good diet. It’s impossible.

Electric Shock Therapy

Did you know that the very barbaric Electric Shock Therapy is still very much in use and even legal?

Why, even the hospital down the street from us prescribes it openly, and creates grand mal seizures in its victims and rakes in the dough for doing so….
Find me a psychiatrist that would allow it to be done to himself or his loved ones and I’ll buy you lunch.

Most of the people who are its victims have real illnesses which don’t require burning up their nerves with high voltage current. But only if someone is interested in them enough to look.

Lifeworks Success Story

We got this success story this week. It’s a miracle! But we are used to that!

“When I started treatment March 1, 2016 at Lifeworks I was literally at death’s door. I had been suffering for 18 years with IBS among many other symptoms. All doctors I had been to previously said I was fine but here is a pill, a drug that made symptoms worse. In January 2015 I had no energy left to hold a job and had to resign. By September 2015 I was losing cognitive ability and I had withdrawn from society. Unable to hold a conversation, the anxiety and tremors too much to bear, my neurologist said I was fine and to see a psychiatrist. By January 2016 I weighed 100 lbs and was unable to eat anything without terrible reactions; I had turned autoimmune. In February 2016, I learned about Lifeworks Wellness Center. Unable to walk, talk, think, sleep, eat, I scheduled a visit with Dr Minkoff. At my first appointment I saw success stories lining the hallway walls and hoped that would be me someday writing one. 4 months later, I am thrilled to share with you my success story!!!

Thank you Dr. Minkoff. It was your treatment plan that helped my body get what it needed to survive at a time when I had nothing left to give. I am 44 years old and this was the most difficult time of my life. Nothing about this was easy. It took dedication, persistence, and all the mental and physical strength I could find. I needed to find it within me to give trust to one last doctor after so many had failed me. After a month of treatment I started to see a few symptoms lifting; like my hair was no longer falling out. That was very encouraging. It was scary at first but in that month I learned the routine and got to know the Lifeworks staff. I started to feel a sense of comfort and support and looked forward to my appointments even though the detoxing was difficult I knew it had to be done to get well. Every couple weeks I reached more milestones of healing. There were times of setbacks but I focused on the improvements and learned what caused setbacks and adjusted. I just finished my 4th month of treatment and I start my new job on Monday. I have much healing still to do from the damage caused by pathogens but I have improved significantly. I look forward to building a new career. I would highly recommend Lifeworks Wellness Center.

  • LDL Cholesterol 
  • Alzheimer's and Dementia Summit
  • Dr. Springer on Weight Gain
  • Cardiovascular Disease

LDL cholesterol is not bad, it’s good.

This is the result of a 68,000 patient study published in the British Medical Journal68,000 patient study published in the British Medical Journal. All you had been told about keep your LDL below 100 is junk non-science and lies to put you a on statin drugs which damage your health.

LDL-Cholesterol, often called “bad” cholesterol has been the heart disease boogey man for three quarters of a century. It is the basis for the multi-billion dollar statin industry. A new study in the prestigious British Medical Journal not only calls this into question but completely turns the tables, asserting that high LDL cholesterol is protective, and that the lipid hypothesis is bunk. For the details, click on the link below.

I have been routinely taking people off of statins at their first visit as I knew they were dangerous and did not help people. This study finally proves this out. You don’t need your statin and in fact it is hurting you.

Autoimmunity, Cancer & Viruses

I watched a stunning video this week that about took my breath away from a doctor in Minnesota on the viral origin of cancer, its relation to autoimmune disease and the politics of disease. As a part of my routine testing in all patients, I do look for 8 different viruses that can underlie the symptoms that patients are having. I also have every patient screened with electro dermal screening for 15,000 environmental toxins and viruses. We then address them homeopathically. That is one of the reasons why our patients do so well. We cover so many bases.

It is often said that truth is stranger than fiction and knowledge is power. Once you watch this video you will know what I mean. Here it is....

New Book Exposes the 5 Myths in Modern Medicine

Demand Better

In the book Demand Better! Revive our Broken Healthcare System two doctors take on the health care system and list five healthcare myths preventing effective healthcare delivery. 

All of us should read it with the safety of our friends, families and ourselves firmly in mind. 

Most of us are confident that the quality of our healthcare is the finest, the most technologically sophisticated and the most scientifically advanced in the world. And for good reason—thousands of clinical research studies are published every year that indicate such findings. Hospitals advertise the latest, most dazzling techniques to peer into the human body and perform amazing lifesaving surgeries with the aid of high-tech devices. There is no question that modern medical practices are remarkable, often effective and occasionally miraculous. ple with information they need to make responsible decisions about their own health care.

But there is a wrinkle in our confidence. We believe that the vast majority of what physicians do is backed by solid science. Their diagnostic and treatment decisions must reflect the latest and best research. Their clinical judgment must certainly be well beyond any reasonable doubt. To seriously question these assumptions would seem jaundiced and cynical.
