Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune Disease Treatment

We offer effective, natural  treatments for Autoimmune diseases

Autoimmune disease occurs when the immune system of the body which normally protects us from disease and infection, literally attacks its own cells leading to dysfunction of those tissues.

This may be restricted to an individual organ or may involve a particular tissue in different places like nerves, muscles, an endocrine gland or a digestive organ. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune disease and it is one of the most frequent reasons that people visit us at our Clearwater clinic. Among the most common autoimmune diseases are Hashimotos thyroiditis, systemic lupus, colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes type 1 and Crohn’s disease.

At LifeWorks, part of the treatment of autoimmune disease may include immunizing the patient to their own blood. In this simple but effective procedure, a small amount of a patient’s blood is taken and mixed with a homeopathic remedy and then is delivered back into the patient. This has the effect of re-programming the patient’s immune system and in many cases, begins the process of improving their symptoms toward recovery.

Autoimmune Disease treatment has helped many Tampa Bay residents and it could do the same for you. Call (727) 466-6789 for an appointment.

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
