Detoxing Your Body in a Toxic World – OHR #434

Detoxing your body in a toxic world

While life now is infinitely better in some ways than 100 years ago, some of our progress has come with a price.

  • Cancer death rates were 2% from autopsy data and now they are almost 10x that.
  • Autism was unheard of, now it afflicts 30 or 40% of males in the U.S.
  • All food was organic without chemicals. Now there are 80,000 that we are exposed to daily.
  • Medical treatments were herbal or homeopathic based, now tens of thousands of people die annually from drug based therapies.
  • Well water was pure and wholesome, now toxic chloramines and fluorides are added to our drinking water whether we want them or not.
  • Fish has been a staple for thousands of years, now the ocean is full of chemicals, plastics and heavy metals like mercury and the fish are contaminated with the same poisons.
  • Molds predate our existence on the planet, yet now millions suffer from mold toxicity illness.

I am not a not a doom and gloom guy, but ignoring what is happening is not a good strategy for a long healthy life.

There are only a few causes of ALL illnesses besides whatever genes you have inherited. These are TOXINS/INFECTIONS AND NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES. The structure of your spine may also be a big factor.

To thrive on our now toxic planet, one must avoid toxins, and work to get them out of the body and take nutritional supplementation to keep the body in good enough shape to carry on its metabolism and detox processes.

Anyone serious about being healthy must do at least an annual check for environmental toxins and nutritional deficiencies. ONLY then will you know what you must do to unburden your body. These toxics are so prevalent that NO ONE is escaping them.

They are the cause of GI problems, hormone abnormalities, fatigue, poor sleep, anxiety and depression, autoimmune disease and for sure CANCER.

I implore you to make an appointment with us so you can get fixed before you know your broken. Once you’ve had the heart attack or stroke or cancer diagnosis then the chances of living a long healthy life are in doubt.

Have a great week and call us today so a thorough evaluation can be done.

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.
