Chronic Illness Solutions

A chronic illness is one lasting 3 months or more, by the definition of the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics.

Fibromyalgia, migraines, diabetes, and asthma are some of the more common chronic illnesses; diseases such as lupus, heart disease, and cancer, are also just a few additional conditions that can make life seem like a continual challenge.

What Causes Chronic Illness?

At our Clearwater clinic, we recognize the chronic diseases of our nation are due mainly to three causative factors. Many of the chronic conditions named in our medical textbooks are for groups of symptoms that a patient may have. Of course, symptoms are the result of some cause, and if one is going to help the patient get better, those causes must be found. If we only treat symptoms we are often unsuccessful in the long run at restoring real optimum health.

In our view, we diagnose the real causes of chronic illness and correct them so that the underlying diseases don't continue. Many chronic illnesses are progressive. More and more medicines are usually added to try to help the patient. But nevertheless, they get worse with time, and often medicines bring new side effects that then have to be dealt with. We feel that unless we handle these root causes, we will never get an optimally well patient.

The Real Story: So what are the three causative factors that eventually result in chronic illness like cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease and stroke, chronic fatigue, colitis, obesity, etc.?

  1. The body needs something it doesn't have: Deficiency.
  2. The body has something that it shouldn't have: Toxicity. This could be an low grade chronic infection, or pesticides or chemicals in the body, or heavy metal load.
  3. The body is allergic to something, meaning it has a reaction to something that it should not have.

Added to these three causes are genetics which only means that each of us have our own level of weakness to the three factors, and added to that are whatever mental stressors that are part of a persons life.

So, unless we correct deficiency, remove the toxic load, and handle allergy, chronic illness symptoms will never get better. Many times palliative medications for treatment of chronic illness may add to the toxic load.

At Lifeworks Wellness Center we work with you to get the exact deficiencies, toxicities and allergies that are causing your symptoms. Then a complete program that will correct these causes can be provided for you. This will restore your optimum health.

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.
