Non-Stop Patient Successes*

Greetings! I have the best job in the world. Seriously. Nothing is as much fun as helping people feel better. Day after day people come in for rechecks and tell me “my energy is way up,” “my joints don’t hurt anymore,” “my hot flashes are gone and I can now sleep!” “I’ve lost 10 pounds since my last visit!” “My cancer is dying and I’m not!” “I’ve never felt so good.” “My prostate was making me get up every hour all night and now I can sleep through. Do you know what a relief that is?” “I never thought anyone could help me with Lyme and you have. I am so grateful. You have the best team in the world.”. We love hearing all the patient testimonials!

If you have an unsolved health problem there is a high probability that we can help. Call us now for a consultation. (727) 466-6789.

Are You as Fertile as Your Father?

Is there a sperm crisis? The short answer is most likely you are not as fertile as your father and yes there is a sperm crisis.

Facts about Fertility:

  1. In France the sperm concentration decreased nearly 1/3 from 1989 to 2005.
  2. A prominent study from the 1990s suggested that sperm count has decreased by half over the last half-century.
  3. Lowered sperm counts means lowered fertility but the same environmental factors that harm reproduction can impact other parts of the body and can mean lowered life expectancy and quality of health.
  4. What environmental toxins are to blame? All the endocrine disruptors like Bisphenol A, heavy metals, petrochemicals, pesticides and insecticides to name a few.
  5. A man should have upward of 60 million sperm per milliliter of semen. If one has above 40 million things will be ok. Below 20 million the ability to conceive drops drastically.

Trouble Conceiving or Low Sperm Count?

What to do if you are having trouble conceiving and/or your sperm count is low? CLEAN UP AND NUTRITION UP!

How can you best do this? Come in and see us for an appointment. We’ll help you get your under-nutrition up to par and your toxic body opened up and healing.

Biophoton Therapy AKA UVB or UVBI

Biopoton therapy

LifeWorks Wellness Center recently added UVBI (Biophoton) therapy to its list of cutting-edge services. This combination of ozone therapy with photon light therapy offers relief to patients who suffer from chronic infections and viruses.

Conditions which patients have previously felt they would have to “live with” can be greatly relieved with this combination of therapies. Hepatitis B and C, Lyme disease, herpes virus, chronic fatigue, rheumatoid arthritis and staph infections are all responding well to this new protocol.

Biophoton therapy utilizes Ultra Violet light, a light which is well-known for its ability to purify air, sterilize water and destroy micro-organisms in waste products. Use of UV light to treat disease began back in the 1870s and continued until the 1950s when most mainstream medical doctors began to use vaccines and antibiotics to treat their patients.

The use and over-use of antibiotics has resulted in super-strains of bacteria, viruses and infections (such as the “super-bug”, MRSA) which are resistant to antibiotics, and therefore labelled “incurable”. This has led many practitioners throughout Europe and the U.S. to look for alternative methods of treating these cases and photo-oxidation is once again increasing in popularity as a go-to therapy.

At LifeWorks, we are finding that Biophoton therapy can really be effective in treating viral and bacterial infections and autoimmune disease. Patients are reporting significant improvements in their well-being and are enjoying the simplicity of the procedure. It is a great addition to our already successful range of ozone therapies.

Many residents of Tampa Bay have experienced relief from Biophoton therapy, and you can too. Call (727) 466-6789 for an appointment.

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.
