Vaccines & The Government

I just received an article by a doctor that I consider one of the best and brightest in the profession. He wrote an expose on vaccines and the government complicity and cover-up of the damage they are doing. This is a scientific report and excellent as to what is really happening and at least the hint that our new President will address this issue – as no President has ever done before.

There is at least some hope that someone will take on the FDA and big pharma to get their ethics in and provide for us medicines and vaccines that actually help without harm.

Here is the article.

Yours in Health,

Dr. David I Minkoff, M.D.

My LifeWorks Success Story

Here is a great new video of patient Dana who had battled Lyme disease for 20 years until she came to our clinic.

Here’s her story.

Ask Dr. Springer

I’ve seen some of your videos and you place a lot of emphasis on gut issues and how they affect general health. Why is this?

What is Well Woman Care?

Are you one of the many thousands of women for whom a well woman exam is only an annual Pap smear and a manual breast exam? Then read on…

Who can name the biggest killers of women?

#1 is Cardiovascular disease ASVD (heart attack and stroke) and hypertension.

#2 is Cancer.

#3 is Lung disease, obesity, diabetes and bone fractures.

A thorough Well Woman Exam should be able to reveal the pre-cursors to all of these. It should be an opportunity to ask any questions about issues which may be causing you concern, from fertility to cancer signs to inherited disorders. It should provide you with an annual report on your overall state of health, and not just give the “ok” to your breasts and reproductive organs. Identifying minor issues which may have the potential to develop into a serious illness is what a Well Woman Exam should do.

At LifeWorks, a Well Woman exam consists of a pap smear which is designed to detect premalignant and malignant cells in your cervix. Also included is a pelvic exam which checks the female organs and a manual breast exam which checks for lumps or abnormalities. We also include a Hemoccult test which looks for blood in the rectum and a body composition analysis which records percentages of: fat, muscle, bone, water, visceral fat, metabolic rate and physique rating.

Our Nurse Practitioner may then recommend additional tests which are not included in the Well Woman Exam.

My LifeWorks Success Story

“I have been coming to LifeWorks for approximately 2 months now. The HOCATT has been one of my treatments of protocol.

I would like to say that I enjoy the “ozone sauna” as it is very relaxing and rejuvenating! But I also would like to commend Amelia for her bright, warm smile that greets me each time! Amelia is a thoughtful “mother hen” who sees to it we are well cared for with water and who is there to “blot our brows” and faces when sweaty. She is always positive and makes light yet enjoyable conversation. It’s nice to be around her as she genuinely works from a heart of love!”

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.
