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.

Greetings all!

Virtually all of our Lyme patients get better. I can say that categorically. They come from all over: East coast, West Coast, Canada, Australia, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, Hawaii.

We recently had a patient, who is an ex pro athlete, with overwhelming fatigue and brain fog.  This patient was sick for years but after 6 weeks of treatment he was feeling "normal” again.

If you have Lyme, come in and do our program. For most in 2-4 months, you'll regain your health.

We are really good at this. Call for an appointment today!

Have a great week.

Dr. David I Minkoff, MD

Did you know that there are more than 9 billion tons of plastics in our environment?

Plastic is probably everywhere in your life – but according to new research conducted in the very deepest parts of the ocean, that’s true even for the most remote tiny seafloor critters living almost 7 miles below the surface as well.

The tests, which were done on small shellfish found in deep-sea trenches across the Pacific Ocean, haven’t been published in a scientific journal yet and were conducted under the auspices of Sky Ocean Rescue, an anti-plastic pollution campaign run by a European media company.  But this sort of finding has been expected for quite a while.

“These observations are the deepest possible record of microplastic occurrence and ingestion, indicating it is highly likely there are no marine ecosystems left that are not impacted by anthropogenic debris,” lead Researcher Alan JamiesonAlan Jamieson, a senior lecturer in marine ecology at Newcastle University, in the United Kingdom, said in a press releasesaid in a press release.

This is no surprise to me as on all new patients we check their bodies for plastic residues as well as hundreds of other environmental chemicals.  These foreign materials get into our organ tissues causing hormone disruption, and into our brains causing all manner of problems with mood, sleep, perception and thinking.

Reducing plastic exposure is very important and getting it out of your body is mandatory.  Stop using cellophane to wrap food, use non plastic containers for food and stop drinking water from plastic bottles.  Make sure your detox systems are functional by cleaning up your gut, liver and kidneys.  Do regular sauna to sweat out the residues.

Here at LifeWorks we are experts in detoxification and can help you get your body in much better shape by getting out plastic and other chemical residues.  Our HOCATT ozone sauna is a very good way to do this.  It makes your skin baby soft and detoxes the chemicals deep in your body to bring you energy and health.

Call us to find out more.  A healthy body is a clean one.  It’s never too late to get yours optimized.

Have a great week.

Optimum Health Report #342

At LifeWorks we strive to do only one thing: To help our patients achieve their optimum health. 

Every person who works in our clinic is focused on that one outcome. Some who come to us are very ill, with life threatening conditions like cancer, Lyme, autoimmune disease or Alzheimer's. Others are struggling with diabetes, high blood pressure, fatigue or low hormones and want a better quality of life. No matter what, each person that we see is given an individual program to meet their needs and help their condition. We do not have a cookie cutter that we stamp our patients with. With this approach we get the best results of any clinic anywhere. 

This year I am proud to say that we had our highest ever in number of people helped and that gives me the highest satisfaction and pleasure to let you know that. And it boosts my enthusiasm to do even better next year.

I used to love bread. According to the bible and dozens of other cultures it’s the staff of life. Pure golden wheat bread - smell the aroma of freshly toasted bread!

But alas, no more. I can't eat it. Makes me bloat and after a couple of days my joints hurt. This has been true for years.

Why?

Getting well will never happen with a toxic mouth. I preach this every day and have successes with very sick patients every day by making sure their mouth is healthy. In my experience, the most toxic thing in the mouth is a root canal tooth.

Almost all of them will show abscesses on CT scan. These are pockets of pus two inches from the brain and on a major nerve channel that goes right into the brain with no relay point.

Earlier this year there was a film crew from Australia that come to interview me for a movie on this subject. The movie maker was almost killed from the side effects of having a root canal done. This is the trailer for the upcoming movie. It is dramatic and very to the point. Please watch it. It will make you rethink dentistry.

One of the great physicians of the last 75 years was Dr. Abram Hoffer. He pioneered the use of vitamins and minerals as therapy. He stated that there was always a natural substance that could do better than any drug for some body condition. He wrote prolifically and published many articles on using natural substances. He called this Orthomolecular medicine. He recently died after over 90 years of a full life.

Here are my favorite Hoffer quotes:

"Drugs make a well person sick. Why would they make a sick person well?"

Dr MGreetings all!

Consider my definition of truth in science and medicine: That which is true because it produces results as a therapy for the patient in improving his health, his beingness and his ability to do things. Take a look at what the current editor of the Lancet Medical Journal states about the current state of science:

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” – Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world.

Dr MGreetings all!

Are you on supplemental Iodine?
If not, you should be unless you are eating a lot of seaweed or nori.
Why?
See below for a very nice review of what Iodine does and why you need it.
I recommend all of my patients take about 6 mg per day. That is safe and will provide you with enough so that your body's Iodine levels are in good range.

Have a great week.

Operational Bodies

Dr M

Dear Readers,
Greetings all!
There is a concept that something is operational when it works the way it is supposed to, without attention and without compromise.
When you push the switch, the motor turns on. Every time. No fail. If you have to jimmy the switch, or just push it a certain way, or put in a hope factor before you push it because it sometimes doesn't work, that is not operational.
Probably everyone lives with various things in the environment that are not operational. They sometimes work and sometimes don't. From my own experience one can go into apathy about such things and just ignore them, or not use them, or just forget them. Unfortunately, they are never forgotten, because that lingering nagging underneath awareness is that one knows that damn thing won't usually work and worry can set in that when you need it most, it won't. One can even lose sleep over such things.
This can apply to one's body as well. Can your body be counted on to perform? Could you run for a bus and not have a heart attack? Could you lift a heavy object off someone if it fell on them? Could you stay up all night for an emergency and keep your mental sharpness?
Having the body operational is much more important than having any other machine in such capacity.
If you answered no to any of the above questions about your body being operational, it might be good to take some action and get your body so it is operational. This will require some work but is very satisfying. Not only will you look good in the mirror, but the confidence you will feel is real.
One of our goals at Lifeworks is to help you become operational.
We can test your heart and lungs and biochemistry and get you in the best condition you can be in.
Then you will be operational and that makes living fun and fulfilling and allows you to take on new challenges with confidence.
Call us if you want to learn more about this.
Have a great week.
Dr. David I Minkoff, M.D.
