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?"

Water and Iodine? Is there a connection?

Writing these articles is one of my favorite things to do. It is another way to inform people of the stealth impacts on the body and the ways and means to fix it. After all, our bodies can be likened to our very own specialized automobiles. Perhaps by habit, genetic tendencies or by some spiritual oversight, the majority of humans tend to wait until our “car”, our own bodies, are in a state of utter disrepair before we bring it in for service.

Many of us have this childhood fantasy that the mainstream physicians will take care of our long term health problems. Forgetting that the physicians of today are trained to dispense the pill to get rid of the symptom. C’mon, let’s awaken to the effects of the pills itself.

If your car has a flat tire, 9 times out of 10 you will get a new tire, not patch it up. Why do we treat our bodies differently? Well, let’s not patch it up. Let’s repair the one we have!

drmGreetings all!

Your body is exposed to aluminum every day.

Is this a problem?

Yes.

Long-term exposure to aluminum can increase your risk of Alzheimer's disease by 60%.

Absorbing any amount of aluminum is harmful.

Know Your Water...

I think most of us as humans, naturally trust. We naturally trust what is said to us. We naturally trust our families, our loved ones and even our governments, whether global or local. I am not saying that governments aren’t trustworthy as that’s another issue. I think that as a group they are well-meaning individuals who show up to work like you and I, and often only do what they are told.

The reason I am saying this is because I think of the rise in cancers, Auto Immune illness and psychiatric illnesses. The rise in all of it. The rise in all of the chaos in the world. The rise in the mass shootings. It’s all one big soup pot that we are in the mix of. The only way I see that we can rise above the mass population, in consciousness, in behavior and in impact on humanity is through knowledge. Knowledge is the way out.

Optimum Health Report #336

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.
