Lyme Disease: It’s Not All In Your Head – OHR #429

Optimum Health Report - Keep on going!

A standard true and tested motto for life in these times… though it was said almost 80 years ago, is as true today as then.

If you’re going through hell, keep going.
Winston Churchill

This works just as well for personal challenges as it does for the societal calamity that we are all living through.

To us keep going means:

  1. Stay true to your moral convictions no matter the excuse to betray them.
  2. Keep your allegiance to your family, your friends and your God.
  3. Take care of your body. Eat organic, get enough sleep, exercise daily, get some sunshine, take your supplements.
  4. Help others as a life purpose.

If you keep going and keep others going, we will make it. I believe there is a rainbow at the end where we can live as free peoples and create the world of our dreams. So keep going!

Have a great week.
Dr. David I Minkoff, MD

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 also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help 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.
