“Cancer Prevention: Better Than Cure”

Dr. Minkoff will be hosting a Seminar at Nature’s Food Patch

Cancer can be a brutal condition and almost everyone dreads being diagnosed with the “Big C”. But how many of us take steps to prevent cancer occurring? What might those steps entail? Dr. Minkoff will discuss the nature of cancer, how and why it occurs and what can be done on an on-going basis to prevent the illness from manifesting.

Seating is limited.

You MUST sign up for this seminar at Customer Care
or call (727) 443-6703.

Water and Iodine? Is There a Connection?

JenniferMany of us have this childhood fantasy that the mainstream physicians will take care of our long term health problems. Forgetting that the physicians of today are trained to dispense the pill to get rid of the symptom. C’mon, let’s awaken to the effects of the pills itself.

If your car has a flat tire, 9 times out of 10 you will get a new tire, not patch it up. Why do we treat our bodies differently? Well, let’s not patch it up. Let’s repair the one we have!

I lectured about 6 months ago on Environmental Toxicities. Ironically, it was the smallest attendance I ever had. Think about it. If our bodies are our number one vehicle in life, what would air and water be to this car!!! Gas, right!

So, this leads me to the topic of this article. (Finally!)

A new British study found that pregnant women’s exposure to a rocket fuel which is a common contaminant of drinking water, is harmful to developing brains of fetuses. It also contaminates millions of Americans. The rocket fuel interferes with T4, a thyroid hormone which is important in fetal brain development.

LifeWorks Wellness Center Will Be Closed
on Thursday 23rd & Friday 24th November 2017.
We will be open as normal on Monday 27th November 2017.

Patient Testimonial

“Dear Dr M,
I am doing home ozone every day along with coffee enemas for detox. Also purchased me a Vibe Plate from Bullet Proof. Looks like the double 17 day protocol was the ticket.


I am feeling better and STRONGER each day.

This is awesome. I think we have flipped the immune switch back on.

Thanks again for all you do. I know it’s hard sometimes to realize how important each of us are, but you guys there at the clinic are really changing people’s lives.

With all my gratitude.” -TR


Sleep gives our minds a chance to rest and our bodies the opportunity to repair itself.  Without enough sleep, we feel irritable and inefficient.  We aren’t able to concentrate fully on our daily tasks.  Each individual needs a different amount of sleep, but most people do best with 8-9 hours per night.  The amount of sleep we need to revitalize and function efficiently during the day also changes as we grow older.  Young babies sleep for up to 18 hours each day.  The older we get, we usually only sleep around 7 hours a night.  We also take longer to get to sleep in the first place and wake up more often during the night.

These are normal sleep patterns that alter as we progress through life.  Insomniacs, on the other hand, have difficulty falling asleep most nights.  They wake frequently and are restless throughout the night.  They often wake early only to feel tired during the day.  The effects of a few broken nights are not serious.  However, for insomniacs, sleeplessness can last years.  They frequently find themselves in the relentless, vicious circle of overtiredness.  They worry so much about the need for sleep that they cannot relax.

At LifeWorks we have treated hundreds of patients with sleep problems.  We can help you get to sleep and get a good night’s rest.

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.
