In This Edition:

Lyme Disease Treatment

Greetings all!

May is Lyme Disease Awareness month. We are in a world-wide epidemic of this disease.

We have been effectively treating patients for this for the past 9 years. We have patients who have come from all over the world. Many have seen 10 or more practitioners in an attempt to solve the problem.

For chronic Lyme, the usual antibiotic therapy rarely is effective. It just prolongs the disease. In my experience, when patients are treated properly they get over their Lyme disease and become normal again. It’s not a lifelong sentence of pain and fatigue as long as they continue a healthy life-style.

So there is hope for Lyme patients. Call us if you need help.

Have a great week.

Dr. David I Minkoff, M.D.

Jennifer Baer Hosts Talk for Lyme Disease Awareness

jenniferJennifer Baer ARNP, will be hosting a free talk in recognition of May being Lyme Disease Awareness Month.

Lyme Disease: The Silent Epidemic

Lyme disease is a misunderstood condition known as the “great imitator” because its symptoms mimic those of other chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia and more.

Jennifer explains, “It is essential to help to raise the public profile of Lyme disease because it is rapidly reaching epidemic proportions. So many patients who come to our clinic have been misdiagnosed with another condition but when we test them we find the root cause of their condition is Lyme. It is only then that they can start receiving the correct treatment and can begin to recover.”

What began as an experiment blossomed into LifeWorks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
