We Are Here to Help

I saw a patient today who I have not seen in over a year. She had come for two visits. I greeted her warmly and she gushed that when she was following our treatments, she was the best she had been in years. No fatigue, no brain fog, no depression. Now it was all back with a vengeance.
“Where have you been?” I asked.
She said “I got lost. I have seen many doctors trying to get back what you gave me here and I have not been able to. They give me drugs and supplements that don’t work and I am miserable. Please take me back,” she said. “I am depressed, exhausted, and it feels like my head is disconnected from my body.”
“We can fix that,” I said. “But you had better stay with me a little longer so you can stabilize and not regress again.”
In 2-3 months she will again be well. With our precise diagnostics and treatments, we can help anyone who is willing to make the effort to get well. It is a science and we are experts.
If you or someone you care about is not well, call and come in and see us.
We are here to help and want to help you.

Have a great week.
Dr David I Minkoff MD

Thank you for recognizing and treating Lyme disease – there are too many doctors and treatment facilities that ignore it.”

What is Chelation Therapy?

The word “Chelation” comes from the Greek word “chele” which means a claw of a crab or lobster and implies a strong, pincher-like grasping. In the case of chelation therapy, the grasping is done by a chelating agent and the object grasped is a metal atom.

What is Chelation Therapy Used For?

At our Clearwater clinic, chelation therapy is used as the primary treatment of heavy metal poisoning by lead, cadmium, aluminum, mercury, arsenic, and even iron. Because chelation appears to improve circulation and reduce toxic chemical reactions in the body, it has also been used successfully for arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, and eye diseases such as macular degeneration.

About Dr. Minkoff

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 attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help 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.
