Autism and A.D.H.D - Why the Epidemic?

In recent years there has been an increase in childhood health issues accompanied by  an increase in the use of prescription drugs to handle them. It is now estimated that 1 in 150 children have autism spectrum disorders and that 4.4 million youths ages 7-21 have been diagnosed with ADHD by their healthcare practitioner.

It is usually parents who first notice “something strange” about their young child’s behavior. He or she may not play imaginatively with toys or other children, they may seem indifferent to what’s going on, may talk to people in an odd, repetitive way, paying little attention to their responses. Some autistic children also behave in a challenging way, screaming or biting and kicking other people, perhaps because they are anxious and frightened. One theory is that autistic children are supersensitive to certain sounds, which can make them irritable, frustrated and even hysterical.

The most susceptible children appear to have a detoxification system that is slow in removing heavy metals like mercury and other toxins that have entered their bodies. With this slow detoxification system, the toxin levels accumulate and cause injury to the brain and other systems resulting in the problems we see in autistic children throughout Tampa Bay.

Many of these children are prescribed drugs such as Ritalin, Paxil, Resperdal, etc., for their symptoms which may mask the symptoms and not remedy the underlying cause.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
