Bedside Manner & Your Recovery – Optimum Health Report #397

Bedside Manner Can Affect Your Recovery

Dear Readers,

Greetings all!

This newsletter is going out to all of my friends and you are them.

I want you to go to the link below which is from a TED talk that is a revelation that is denied and frowned upon by much of regular medicine. Medicine and doctors can be condescending, even to God, in telling patients their future, even that they will die in a certain time. How arrogant and how terrible! Please watch and enjoy.

Have a great week.

Dr. David I Minkoff, MD


About Dr. Minkoff

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.
