Featured Lyme Disease Articles

It’s time to discuss some facts and fiction surrounding the increasingly common, Lyme disease and the process used by LifeWorks Wellness Center to accurately detect and treat it.

“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!”

Sometimes truths can be discarded when it would be good if they were appreciated…

Did the death rate from measles in the United States decline by over 98% between 1900 and 1962, the year before the first measles vaccine was introduced?

According to the CDC’s data, the death rate from measles had already declined over 98% between 1900 and 1962, which was before the measles vaccine was introduced in the United States.

This official United States government data shows that in 1900, the rate of mortality from measles was 13.3 per 100,000 individuals and by 1960 it was 0.2 deaths per 100,000 individuals.

The death rate was also 0.2 deaths per 100,000 individuals in 1961 and 1962. And the first measles vaccine did not come onto the market until 1963.

Meaning, an over 98% decline in measles mortality between 1900 and the early 1960s before there was a measles vaccine.

If you like charts, the following is an official chart of measles mortality issued by the United States governmentshowing the drop in measles mortality from 1900 to 1960.

This chart was published before there was a measles vaccine — no doubt they would never publish such a chart today!

Thank you Aaron Siri for pointing this out.
