Gastrointestinal Disorders

GERD

The abbreviation GERD stands for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

Classic stomach ulcer symptoms include burning, intense pain in the mid-upper abdomen, and waking in the early morning, often with a sensation of abnormal hunger.

About 80 percent of cases are caused by the action of a spiral-shaped bacterium called Helicobacter Pylori which uses its whip-like tail to burrow into the stomach or intestinal walls.

Most ulcers occur in the duodenum, where the stomach enters the small intestine. They are most common in middle age, though children can get them, too. Males are affected twice as often as females, and they tend to run in families.

Traditional treatment of peptic ulcers includes 3 or more weeks of triple antibiotic therapy and acid blocking drugs. With this therapy there can be many side effects.

At LifeWorks, we have natural methods to treat this condition that do not produce such side effects.

If you live in the Tampa Bay area and suffer from indigestion or acid reflux then call our Clearwater clinic at 727 466 6789.

Dr. Minkoff

About Dr. Minkoff

In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, 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. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established LifeWorks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
