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."
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

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?"...

There's a Hidden Lyme Disease Epidemic
Lyme disease appears epidemic. We see several new patients each week who come in with vague symptoms, aches, fatigue, brain fog, or most commonly with a diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Per our findings they actually have been misdiagnosed and have Lyme disease. Lyme disease is a bacterial and/or parasitic infection spread by the bite of a tick or more commonly, a mosquito. We have been having excellent successin patients who have failed the traditional antibiotic therapy.
