Optimum Health Report #352

Dear Readers,

Greetings all!

This week a close friend was just diagnosed with stage IV cancer. She has started her treatments and made a comment to me that slightly took me aback. She said, "Getting cancer has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. It’s gotten me to slow down, look around, appreciate, and really get into communication with my family, friends, and environment like never before. Prior to the diagnosis, I was on a treadmill, moving every second, making sure everything always got done and it was such a whirlwind that I missed the pleasure of just being alive. Now I am experiencing that! And what a pleasure it is. I am actually very happy."

How interesting!

Fortunately we don't know our future. It could be decades or seconds. It’s mostly out of our hands.

But, if we knew it was days, how would we react with other people? Would we get as quickly annoyed or angry with the people around us? Would we say “I appreciate you” or “I love you” more often? Would we be more patient, helpful or kind?

Life is a miracle gift. We didn't ask for it - suddenly we were here. It will last as long as it lasts and then it will be gone. Take a minute and think about what you could still do with your life so that when it’s nearly over, and you look back, you can say with satisfaction: I lived, I helped, and I got done what I set out to do, and others were glad I was here and did what I did.

Have a great week,

Dr. David I Minkoff, MD

Greetings all!

I am an avid reader and audio book lover.

I just ran across a fun set of questions while listening to a story about a famous general and wanted to pose the questions to you. I found them very interesting and provocative for my own thinking. When he asked them, the consequence of a poor answer was to lose your head. For the best answers any 3 of you send in, I'll send you back a container of Perfect Amino XP. Have fun!

Optimum Health Report #349

Greetings all!

Do you want to kill yourself and die of cancer? Then just eat a lot of processed foods.

According to a recent article in the British Medical JournalBritish Medical Journal (1) almost 60% of the calories the average American consumes come from ultra-processed foods. These aren’t real foods. “They are food products”. They are created to be convenient, ready to eat, highly palatable, ready to drink and to replace cooking.

Go to any major grocery store and watch what people buy in the checkout line. The main food examples are:

  • Confectionary
  • Soft drinks
  • Sweetened juices
  • Dairy drinks
  • Powders for juices
  • Sausages
  • Chicken and fish nuggets or sticks
  • Pre-prepared frozen dishes
  • Dried products such as cake mix, powdered soup
  • Instant noodles
  • Ready seasonings
  • Morning cereals and cereal bars
  • Energy drinks
  • An endless amount of new products including packaged snacks

These junk foods add 90% of the added sugars to the diet. In another article (2) in the same issue, the authors found that a 10% increase in ultra-processed foods led to a 12% increase in the risk of cancer.

The first intervention that I make on every new patient is to put them on an organic whole food Paleo diet. Within 6 weeks, nearly every person feels the difference and finds their cravings have gone away, their energy is better, their bowel movements are daily and they sleep better.

Try it and avoid suicide. Health is an inside job and only you can pull it off. Not all the medicine in the world or medical care system can save you from yourself.

Good luck!

Have a great week,

Dr. David I Minkoff, MD
