Healthy Cells & A Healthy Body – OHR #430

Healthy cells make for a strong body and a body that will heal and have energy and no pain.

Did you know there are about 600,000 new cancer diagnoses each year? Over 1500 per day. About the same number die of their cancer every year as well.

Did you also know that the success rate of using chemotherapy for cancer only improves survival by about 2% over five years?

If you have cancer and hope that the chemo that makes your hair fall out and makes you feel so sick is worth it, you might be looking in the wrong place for help.

The average cancer doctor will tell you that it doesn’t matter what you eat, that nutritional supplements are just a waste of money, and that you got cancer because its genetic. Reminds me of the fat, smoking doctor on blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes meds telling you how to be healthy. Doesn’t really compute.

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, treatments that assist your immune system with nutrition, diet, IV Vitamin C, ozone, hyperthermia, hyperbaric oxygen, can give you a chance. They can build your immune system but more importantly can improve your vitality. And they won’t hurt you.

Getting healthy, no matter how sick you are, must include therapies that build up your body. That’s why we treat sick people and cancer patients the way we do. To heal you must increase the energy in the body and drugs will never do that. So therapies that work improve nutrition and detoxification and get cellular health back. Healthy cells make for a strong body and a body that will heal and have energy and no pain.

If you need help, call us. We can and will help you.

Have a great week.

Lyme Disease Detection

Because Lyme mirrors other common illnesses, it’s very difficult for most patients to know whether or not they actually have the disease. For some, symptoms of the disease may not appear until months or years after being infected. Others with untreated Lyme may not know that they have it until they receive positive test results. And while many people question the accuracy of the conventional testing process, LifeWorks Wellness Center has a 90% success rate in detecting Lyme and treating it in many of its patients.

“Before coming to LifeWorks, I had pretty much given up hope on ever feeling better or going back to work. One of my major symptoms was hair loss and no other doctors had any answers or help. A friend told me about Dr. Minkoff and he really helped get to the root of all my symptoms and treat my Lyme disease. The silver protocol made a big difference and was when I noticed my hair growing back. My hair also grew back healthier. My brain fog has gone away, I can sleep better and overall feel much better than I thought I would again! Thanks to Dr. Minkoff and everyone at LifeWorks!”

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.
