Staying Healthy in a Toxic Environment - Optimum Health Report #388

Staying Healthy in a Toxic Environment  - Optimum Health Report #388

Dear Readers,

Here in Clearwater and in many cities across the country the water is fluoridated. By city mandate, our city adds fluoride to the water supply. One doesn’t get a choice or not if he wants it.

You must take active measures to take it out of your water that you drink or bathe in. I am bringing this up now because a new major study was published last month in JAMA Pediatrics showing that pregnant women had lowered IQs in their male children if they were exposed to fluoride during their pregnancy. The study and explanation are here: http://fluoridealert.org/articles/greenfluorideiq/

It’s a tragic misuse of public health policy.

So what do you do?

Filter your shower water and filter your drinking water so that the fluoride doesn’t get into your body.

Here are some examples:

  • For drinking water
  • For shower:  this is the only one that I found that will reduce fluoride and chlorine plus many other contaminants. It’s a bit more expensive but works much better.

So if you want to protect your body and your children’s bodies from contaminants in the water supply get either a whole house filter system with reverse osmosis under the sink, or see the filters mentioned above.

It will save you from falling IQ and save your brain so you can think when you’re old. Oh, and skip the fluoride tooth paste. It’s just as bad.

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

Cognitive Decline and Alzheimer’s Disease - Optimum Health Report #387

Cognitive Decline and Alzheimer’s Disease  - Optimum Health Report #387

Dear Readers,

Cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s Disease are now some of the most common causes of death in the United States.  Do you know that many popular medicines, used by many millions of Americans actually can accelerate cognitive decline and precipitate Alzheimer’s Disease?

At the top of the list are antihistamine drugs like Benadryl and to a lesser extent, Zyrtec and Claritin. These drugs are anticholinergic and block the parasympathetic nervous system. Unfortunately, these drugs increase the risk of dementia and use in older people should be cautioned. They can cause confusion, memory loss, and worsening mental function.

Chronic Illness: A Light at the End of the Tunnel - Optimum Health Report #386

Chronic Illness: A Light at the End of the Tunnel - Optimum Health Report #386

Greetings All!

Chronic illness is no fun. In the right hands there can be light at the end of the tunnel. Many of our patients have seen up to thirteen doctors before coming to LifeWorks and finding their health return. Here is a recent patient’s success:

“The last 3 days I have experienced a significant shift and I can clearly see the progress and decline in all symptoms.  Neuropathy in feet and hands is declining and I sense the beginning of autonomic recovery.  Brain inflammation is down, CSF mobility and blood flow has improved.  Mental, emotional and psychological stability is noted.   I am expecting the hyponatremia issue to resolve as the brain settles down.  I am now very optimistic and grateful to be at LifeWorks.”

Is Lyme Disease Playing Hide-and-go-seek with your Doctor? - Optimum Health Report #384

Is Lyme Disease Playing Hide-and-go-seek with your Doctor? - Optimum Health Report #384

Lyme disease has been called the great masquerader, meaning it can appear to be something else like Lupus, MS, Parkinson’s, Chronic Fatigue, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and others.  Most traditional physicians either misdiagnose it or treat it with long term antibiotics which are rarely successful.

About half of our patients come from out of town to be treated at LifeWorks for Lyme because treatment at other places has failed.  Our success rate is very high.

Just this week a patient wrote this to us:

“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 non antibiotic protocol made a big difference and I knew it 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!”

Don’t waste your time or money with treatments that will not work. Come to us and receive our proven successful methods. We are not perfect, but you will not find better care anywhere.  I can guarantee that. Call now for an appointment.

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

Inflammation and its Connection to Disease - Optimum Health Report #383

Inflammation and its Connection to Disease - Optimum Health Report #383

Greetings All!

Incredible successes keep rolling in. This one is astounding.

“I came here broken, sick, dying, and full of illness. I couldn't get out of bed for 5 years. I was just about done with this life of misery. And 12 weeks later I am almost myself again. I was very very sick. Full of toxins of every kind. Lyme. Shingles. I was treated terribly by so many doctors that I didn't even want to meet another one… until Dr. Minkoff. He saved my life. His staff is superb. The treatments he has for specific illnesses are so well researched and so effective I felt a difference after 6 weeks. Other people noticed a difference at week 3. I can't believe how much better I feel. I still have some ways to go but to feel like a human being again and to have less pain and suffering and to see how well I feel is a miracle because I didn't think I had much hope of surviving my 53rd birthday. But here I am and glad to be alive. My daughter saw the difference after one month of treatment. Everyone that works here is wonderful. Supportive. And his PA's are top notch. His office manager is amazing. Everyone just wants to see patients get what they need. My life was saved by LifeWorks and Dr Minkoff and his program. And I thank God everyday for the opportunity to go to such an amazing, caring expert who has created a fabulous program for sick people and those who can't get the help they need. If you have been called crazy by doctors you are probably very sick. Go here and he will fix you. He is amazing and diagnosed my Lyme and internal shingles when no one else could figure it out. Thank you Dr. Minkoff for being THAT DOCTOR that figures out all the tough cases. The one that reassures people who have been abused and neglected by the regular medical profession just because they couldn't figure it out. He will figure it out and fix you for good. A real gift from above. All of them there. Absolutely top notch care. And worth every penny.” - CH

Are you ready to be well?
