Autoimmunity, Cancer & Viruses

I watched a stunning video this week that about took my breath away from a doctor in Minnesota on the viral origin of cancer, its relation to autoimmune disease and the politics of disease. As a part of my routine testing in all patients, I do look for 8 different viruses that can underlie the symptoms that patients are having. I also have every patient screened with electro dermal screening for 15,000 environmental toxins and viruses. We then address them homeopathically. That is one of the reasons why our patients do so well. We cover so many bases.

It is often said that truth is stranger than fiction and knowledge is power. Once you watch this video you will know what I mean. Here it is….

Recent Hocatt Successes

“A couple of days after my 7th Hocatt session I noticed I was feeling better in general. That is saying a lot for me as I have an autoimmune disease called Rheumatoid Arthritis. Also, I want to say that Amelia, the technician who delivers the Hocatt is absolutely a sweetheart. She serves the patients in the fullest sense.”*  ~ Peggy. H.


“After dealing with chronic Lyme disease for 8 years, I am finally getting real help at LifeWorks. The “Egg” or Hocatt is just one of my treatments and I love it. On days when I feel sick and achy or if I am in a lot of pain, the ozone steam sauna always relives my symptoms and helps me feel better.

This is my 8th week of treatment and I now find my body craving ozone. Amelia always makes the treatments comfortable and enjoyable. She is always there to wipe your face with a cool cloth, give you a drink, keep you company etc. I look forward to more treatments as I travel the path to wellness. Thanks you Dr. Minkoff and all the staff at LifeWorks. You have made a real difference to my life.”*  ~ Hannah.

Allergy Elimination Technique for Allergies!

Help relieve allergy symptoms without needles or drugs!

  • A recent nationwide survey found that more than half (54.8%), or 1 in every 2 U.S. citizens test positive to one or more allergies.
  • Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic disease (fatigue, chronic sinus congestion, migraines, stomach problems, arthritis, skin problems, etc.) in the United States, costing $18 billion annually.
  • 18.4 million adults have been diagnosed with hay fever in the past 12 months.
  • Many health care practitioners are finding that hidden food allergies are making people fat. Foods as common as corn, tomatoes and lettuce may cause cravings that make you overeat.
  • In addition to foods, one can also experience allergic reactions to fabrics, nutritional supplements, plant and animal substances, chemicals, metals, and medications.

Allergy Elimination Technique Success Story

“My Allergy Elimination treatments will forever change my life. I have lived for 39 years completely dominated by my allergies and anaphylaxis. The “bubble” I survived in kept getting smaller and smaller before I came to LifeWorks. I was becoming allergic to life itself and not a single day went by without something entering my environment causing me to react. I have left several jobs because I became allergic to renovations in the buildings. That is why when the renovations began at LifeWorks absolute fear hit me – would I have to stop these life-saving treatments because of my allergies?

Thanks to AET and Lisa, the answer to that question is NO. Immediately she started treating me for my latex allergy. Before, even walking into a room that had been painted with latex paint 3 months before elicited an allergic reaction in me. The first day of treatment was excruciating to the point of waking up with a swollen mouth and choking – all from holding a vial of latex frequency. Five treatments later, as this was a stubborn allergy, I am now able to hold a latex glove with no reaction!

This has made such a huge difference to my life. I no longer have to rush away from places displaying the sign “wet paint”. I can actually stand in a store and admire a balloon bouquet. To live without this fear is truly a miracle and something I never thought I would experience.

Now we will work on the countless food and other allergies which will open up am entire world for me. I am so excited. Plus as we treat each allergy, the supplements and IVs necessary to conquer my chronic Lyme disease will be possible. I am looking forward to the day when I am both allergy free and Lyme free.

The next AET for me will address my water allergy – no more dragging around bottles of one specific brand to drink and cook with. My life is being saved by these treatments and Iam so grateful to Lisa for not only performing these treatments but for also being the bright and positive spirit that she is, making the entire process so much easier for me to endure. With her help, my “bubble” world is finally opening up and this is one bubble I do not mind bursting!”*

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.
