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

Optimum Health Report #345

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.

Optimum Health Report #339

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?"

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.

Why do people get cancer?

Cancer cells have an altered metabolism. Otto Warburg identified the altered metabolism of cancer cells back in 1931 and received a Nobel Prize for his work. With this understanding we can improve the outcome in cancer patients even better and prevention is possible. Warburg pointed out that cancer cells can’t produce energy in the normal way and this results in having their cell membranes having low voltage. A healthy cell has a resting membrane voltage of about 70 millivolts. A cancer cell has a resting membrane potential of only around 30 millivolts. Because of the low voltage the cell can’t pull in potassium and push out sodium and this leads to an acid build up in cells. When this occurs, oxygen does not enter the cell in enough quantity and so the cell does not use oxygen to create energy.

When cancer cells lack oxygen they switch to fermentative metabolism. This means low energy (ATP) levels inside of cells...

The Cause of Cancer 

It was Nobel Prize winner, Otto Warburg, who first identified that cancer cells have an altered metabolism. In 1931, this was a breakthrough and has led to a greater understanding of how cancer may be prevented and how the outcome in cancer patients can be improved. What Warburg discovered is that a long-term lack of oxygen allows for normal healthy cells to turn into cancer cells. How does this occur? Healthy cells function by the respiration of oxygen but when cells are deprived of oxygen they survive on the fermentation of sugar. This means low energy (ATP) levels inside of cells.

A healthy cell has a resting membrane voltage of about 70 millivolts. A cancer cell has a resting membrane potential of only around 30 millivolts. A healthy cell is continuously pulling in potassium and pushing out sodium in order to function properly but when the energy of the cell is diminished it can no longer do this which leads to a build-up of acid in the cell. This excess of acid means that oxygen cannot enter the cell, the cell has to look elsewhere for a source of energy, which it finds in the fermentation of sugar. The metabolism of cancer cells is approximately eight times greater than the metabolism of normal cells, hence the crave sugar so much in their quest to survive.

So, with this in mind, it becomes clear that boosting oxygen supply is essential in order to prevent cancer occurring, or as part of its treatment. Cancer cells are traditionally unpredictable, often appearing to have vanished after treatment, only to resurface later on. One reason for this is that conventional cancer treatments usually fail to address either the underlying cause of cancer or the conditions that cancer cells thrive in – e.g., lack of oxygen.
