Blood Sugar & Miracle Peptide Therapies – OHR #432

The biggest killer diseases that have the most drastic effect on people are heart attacks, cancer and alzheimer’s. Underlying each of them is often blood sugar dysregulation.

The biggest killer diseases that have the most drastic effect on people are heart attacks, cancer and Alzheimer’s. Underlying each of them is often blood sugar dysregulation.

Blood sugar dysregulation, say diabetes and obesity, is from overfeeding and eating excess of the wrong foods. Organic meat, fish, eggs, green and red vegetables, and good oils (olive, butter, and the like) will keep you healthy, but processed seed oils, refined carbs, packaged foods, GMOs and glyphosate saturated grains, meats and vegetables will do you in via the pathway of high blood sugar/insulin leading to heart attacks, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.

I am really a fan of monitoring your blood sugar. It’s easy with the Freestyle Libre continuous glucose monitor. You can see what each meal does to your blood sugar and then you’ll know what to eat. That is the key to normalizing your sugar, your weight, and your BMI. It’s a little button that sticks on your arm and sends the results to your smart phone. At the end of the day, you want your average sugar to be under 100.

I am writing prescriptions to anyone that wants one in our practice. At Walgreens it will cost you about $70 per month. After a couple of months, you’ll know what to eat and how to maintain yourself in a healthy state.

The tools of the grim reaper are elevated insulin and blood sugar.

With this knowledge you can live long and well and not be one of his victims.

Have a great week.

Miracle Peptide Therapies

What are Peptides?

Peptides are small proteins that are naturally made by our bodies. They serve as messenger molecules which direct cells to perform a certain function. There are about 60 known peptides in the human body and they are naturally found in every cell and tissue. As our body’s age or get sick, the amount of peptides needed to stay in good health can diminish. With recent medical advances, many of these peptides are available for use from compounding pharmacies and about 60 of them are available for clinical use.

What Conditions Can Peptides Treat?

Peptides can be used to treat a wide variety of illnesses or health issues, including:

  • Cancer
  • Inflammation
  • Lyme disease
  • Dementia
  • Insomnia
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Joint Injury
  • Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
  • Neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Etc.)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Mold-related illness

About Dr. David Minkoff, Medical Director

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 wife Sue, a Registered Nurse, became interested in nutrition and health and began to go to lectures from some of the experts in the field. At the time, Dr. Minkoff was pretty fixed in his view of traditional medicine and it took a lot of convincing to get him to come to one of these lectures. After hearing Dr. Jeffrey Bland speak, Dr. Minkoff had a eureka moment and began pursuing the alternative field with a vengeance. Based on this new knowledge Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic in 1997 to help some 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. In the process, he gained expertise in Biological medicine, integrative oncology, 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. Dr. Minkoff is one of the most in-demand speakers in the field and wrote an Amazon best-selling book called The Search For The Perfect Protein. The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a catalyst for founding BodyHealth.Com, a nutrition company that now manufactures and distributes cutting-edge nutritional solutions for the many health problems of today. Dr. Minkoff writes two free online newsletters, “The Optimum Health Report” and ”The BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter”, to help others learn about optimum health and fitness. Dr. Minkoff is an avid athlete himself and has completed 43 Ironman Triathlons. To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teaches to others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a life free of pain and full of energy.
