Food Sensitivities & Food Allergies – OHR #475

Food Sensitivities & Food Allergies OHR #475

Food sensitivities are very common. So are food allergies.

Twenty years ago, I studied with a practitioner that worked out a simple acupressure method to handle most body reactions to most foods. We call this AET: Allergy Elimination Technique.

It’s quite wonderful.

Way back then, I was treated for egg allergies that caused me to have stomach pain and eczema. After one treatment it totally cured me. I regularly enjoy eggs and have never had a reaction since.

We just got a nice success story from a patient regarding his food sensitivities.

“When I first came to LifeWorks, I could only eat 2 foods.  Yes, you read that right.  My days were full of beef and rice because anything else would cause moderate to severe allergic reactions.  After some time here, I have seen my food options expand and I am now able to eat a couple of fruits, egg yolks and a few different types of oils.  This treatment, as unusual as it may appear, is effective.  I am thankful to be on an AET treatment regimen and look forward to safely adding more foods back into my diet!!
Also, Savi Jo is the best!!”

If you have food sensitivities, I recommend you get a series of AET treatments.  They really work.

Have a great week.

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.
