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.

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.

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.
