Optimum Health Report about Gut Health

Ulcerative colitis is a common and very difficult condition. Diarrhea, abdominal pain and rectal bleeding can occur with weight loss and severe disability.

We consulted on a young man from California about 9 months ago for this condition. He had these same symptoms and had gone from his normal weight of 160 pounds to 135. He had been treated by numerous GI specialists with the latest “new” biological meds without relief. He came to us in desperation.

It took a few months to get him stabilized and then his symptoms abated, and he started to gain his weight back. His diarrhea and bleeding stopped, and his pain subsided. By the time he left to go home he was almost 150 pounds. We just got this nice note from him this week.

“Dear Dr. Minkoff, 
I wanted to let you know that I’ve continued to be in excellent health. I’ve had no UC flare whatsoever and my body continues to get better and better. People who had seen me in past years now comment on how healthy I look. People often ask what I did and I always tell them about LifeWorks and BodyHealth. 
So I wanted to say thank you to you and everyone at LifeWorks for all of the amazing help and what you did for me! You guys are amazing!
Much Love, D“

About Dr. 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.
