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 By September 2015 I was losing cognitive ability and I had withdrawn from society.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....
