Optimum Health Report #340


Getting well will never happen with a toxic mouth. I preach this every day and have successes with very sick patients every day by making sure their mouth is healthy. In my experience, the most toxic thing in the mouth is a root canal tooth.

Almost all of them will show abscesses on CT scan. These are pockets of pus two inches from the brain and on a major nerve channel that goes right into the brain with no relay point.

Earlier this year there was a film crew from Australia that come to interview me for a movie on this subject. The movie maker was almost killed from the side effects of having a root canal done. This is the trailer for the upcoming movie. It is dramatic and very to the point. Please watch it. It will make you rethink dentistry.

Watch the trailer:

Have a great week,

LifeWorks Wellness Center offers patients the EECP therapy.  EECP stands for Enhanced External Counterpulsation.  This therapy is a safe, non-invasive, painless treatment that maximizes nutrient and oxygen rich blood flow throughout the body.  For patients, this improves stamina, strength, mobility and vitality.

Many patients suffer from conditions which can be directly linked to poor circulation, such as shortness of breath, chest pain and fatigue.  EECP Therapy promotes the development of new blood vessels and restores the flow of healthy, oxygenated blood to the heart.

EECP Therapy can successfully treat:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Peripheral vascular disease

About Dr. Minkoff

In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, 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. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established LifeWorks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
