Lyme, GERD & EECP: Optimum Health Report #353
Hope you are well and enjoying spring.
This came in this week and I wanted to share it with you. It is wonderful and very typical of what we do.
Have a great week,
Dr. David I Minkoff, MD
“I had been extremely ill since about the age of 7. I am now 36 but giving up was not an option. I hadn’t fought this hard to just stop now. I was told by many highly ranked medical clinics that I was just too complicated and there was nothing they could do to help me. Getting diagnosis after diagnosis, going from Doctor to Doctor, things just didn’t make sense to me. I knew there was something causing all of the underlying symptoms and illnesses. After doing extensive research, I found Lifeworks online and from the moment I read their website and listened to testimonial after testimonial, I knew I had to get there. The trip from California wasn’t easy being so ill and pretty much bed bound, but I knew in my heart it would be worth it. I was confident that if anyone could figure out the over 80 symptoms I was having, Dr. Minkoff could. At my first appointment I knew beyond a doubt that I had made the right decision. Dr. Minkoff knew what had been causing me to be ill for so many years. I was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease and other co-infections and Chronic Fatigue. I found out I was also infected with Parasites. My own immune system was slowly killing me. With extensive testing we found out that I also had a severe case of mold toxicity, Thyroid problems and Adrenal insufficiency.
Dr. Minkoff really listened to me, ordered several specialized lab tests and most importantly saw the big picture of what was keeping me existing and not living life.
The IV room is amazing. It became like my second home. The staff is really good at what they do. They were each such a vital part of my treatment and healing. They really care and always had a way to make me laugh and even helped build my confidence. I would like to sincerely thank each of them.
Lifeworks is an environment where everyone really cares about you and your well-being as an individual. For me that was a big part of my healing. No matter how I felt, the staff was always there with support and encouragement. Thank you to each of you. You have all helped me tremendously. A very special thank you to Tamora, Wanda and Amelia. I can never thank you each enough for your dedication and support. I truly miss every staff member.
Dr. Minkoff, you know when I first arrived I couldn’t remember words, let alone write a sentence or make much sense. Now I don’t want to stop writing. The migraines, stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain and brain fog were probably destroying my life the most. You never once doubted my ability to heal and to have a bright future. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”

The Real Reason for Mass Shootings... Psych Meds
By Jennifer Baer
We all see the increase in mass shootings occurring. Yes, the state of humanity is on the decline. Those of us who are good human beings need to be continually and actively working on ourselves and our state of being to overcome the downward trend that is occurring. Granted, it takes a lot to thrive in this world today! Personally, I make time to access deeper parts of myself and bring these places forth so I can live a life that I want to live, not being dictated or demanded by others.
