The 6 Most Common Autoimmune Diseases – OHR #435

The 6 most common autoimmune diseases ranked.

Here at LifeWorks, we see many cancer patients who come to us hoping we can help them improve their quality and quantity of life.

Two years ago, such a patient arrived. She was 84 years old and had a diagnosis of inoperable stage IV stomach cancer. It had gone into her liver and surrounding organs and because of her age and advanced disease, she was recommended to go home with no treatment by the oncologist who told her that she had a very short time to live. She was not ready to die or give up.

She came to us and with our care, she lived another two happy years with her family.

Here is her testimonial as told by her loving son:

“We want to thank you all at LifeWorks for the amazing good work you’ve done. You have always done the best that can be done, far, far above what normal medical people can do. This has given my mom over 2 years of more life and good life experience, with many, many highlights for her and us. Times we could share, and appreciate and cherish each other. Good quality life!

The last video-sharing phone call with Dr. Minkoff was another high point of awesomeness! Such a great understanding and mom also appreciated his recommendations, and that worked out very well, and mom could stay here with me the whole time and beyond. We are forever grateful for clinics like LifeWorks whose care for patients and families know no bounds.

Thank you!”

When you come to LifeWorks, whether for cancer or some other problem, we welcome you as part of our family and we do whatever it takes to help you as much as humanly possible.

If you or a friend are in need, please call us. We can help.

Have a great week,

Dr. David I Minkoff, MD

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.
