Lyme Testimonial

“I was 31 and a half years old and had suffered with Chronic Lyme Disease for over 9 years before the Lord providentially led me to LifeWorks Wellness Center. I had tried the Cowden Protocol, True Rife Light, the Vonner Protocol, and Teasel Tincture, (to mention a few remedies), and was still getting worse as time went on. (I do need to interject here, that some of the protocols did help for a while, but never gave lasting help.)

My physical presentation was not a pretty picture. I had gone from an energetic, healthy ER nurse to sitting in my rocking chair for a month at a time with only enough energy to breathe. One of the worst problems that the Lyme had caused me was to render several of my organs unable to function. I had terrible GI paralysis, had my gallbladder removed, thyroid disfunction, etc. from the awful Lyme Disease and its associated co-infections.

Doctors told me that there was no cure. If I had a good day to enjoy it, but otherwise... there was nothing that could be done. My condition deteriorated until I could no longer live by myself and take care of myself. I was paranoid, afraid, very weak, and my body was rejecting more and more foods.

Then came the news of Ozone Therapy for Lyme Disease, and a clinic that offered the treatment. I didn’t think I would be able to go to such a place as LifeWorks and receive treatment, but the Lord graciously provided, and I found myself on my way to my first appointment with Dr. Minkoff. I really didn’t know what to expect at that

appointment. Would Dr. Minkoff laugh at me? Would he also say that there was no cure... no hope... no help??? I struggled into his clinic with my box of supplements……..and WOW! What a difference at that first appointment!!! There was no stress, no pressure, no laughing...I didn’t even have to go all the way through my very lengthy medical history! And there Dr. Minkoff was telling me that I could get better!!!!!!!

At first, I did not believe him. He just didn’t really know me or my condition very well... maybe he was just trying to make me feel better... I was always that “abnormal, atypical” case that no one knew what to do with...

But he did know what he was talking about, and the Lord allowed him to really help me! Oh, how thankful I am for Dr. Minkoff and LifeWorks! The Lord allowed them to give me my life back!

The LifeWorks Difference:

  1. Dr. Minkoff does not get “lost” in symptoms and make you think you are crazy and suggest you see a phycologist (like other doctors do).
  2. The muscle testing (and other tests) get straight to the root of the problem.
  3. Dr. Minkoff only uses the best quality supplements, and has even formulated some of his own (which I enjoy taking every day).
  4. The muscle testing quickly finds which herbs/supplements your body is willing to work with. (For example - there might be 5 different herbs that have been clinically proven to be effective for XXX condition, but each person has individuality, and many times, my body would reject 4 out of the 5.) For years, I had taken things that were supposed to “cure” Lyme disease……..and got little results. When Dr. Minkoff found the herb that my body was willing to work with……the results were amazing!!!!
  5. Dr. Minkoff has found a homeopathic way to “turn of” the autoimmune part of the immune system. This treatment has made a huge difference in my path to healing!

The Lord allowed me to spend 9 months at LifeWorks receiving treatments and working through infections one at a time as they showed up. I’ve been home now for a year and a half (the Lyme and autoimmune have been in remission) and have just gone for a few checkups. I’m still working through adrenal fatigue, but as a whole, I am so much better than I have been over the past 10 years of treatments.

Thank You, Lord, Dr. Minkoff, and the very caring staff of LifeWorks for giving me my life back! I am so blessed!”

Gastrointestinal Disorders

In adults, the Gastrointestinal (or GI) tract runs between 25-32 feet in length.  It begins in the mouth and travels all the way down through the body to the anus. The GI tract includes:

  • the oral cavity
  • esophagus
  • pharynx
  • small intestine
  • large intestine
  • stomach
  • rectum 
  • anus

When food is swallowed, a series of muscles continuously contract which helps the food pass to the stomach and then to the colon.Diarrhea can occur if the muscles are working too quickly.  However, if the muscles are working too slowly then constipation may occur.  If the muscles go into any kind of spasm then you may have some pain, often in the form of cramps.  When these symptoms persist, many people consult a Gastroenterologist for an exam and testing, to determine the type of gastrointestinal disorder they may have. The most common gastrointestinal disorders include:

  • Leaky gut
  • Diverticulitis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • GERD
  • Celiac disease
