Fibromyalgia Seminar, Mercury Poisoning & Boosting Your Immune System: Optimum Health Report #363

Fibromyalgia Seminar, Mercury Poisoning & Boosting Your Immune System

Greetings All.

Has the “collagen protein is the greatest thing since sliced bread” gotten to you?

If so think again. It won’t hurt you but it’s not what you have been told.

I did a little video explaining this and the bottom line is that it’s quite mediocre. Seventy two percent of the collagen will be turned into sugar and not used as a precursor to proteins at all. You’re better off with a couple eggs, some roast beef or a chicken leg.

Here’s a video to explain why.

We’re being duped! Don’t fall for it.

Have a great week.

Fibromyalgia Seminar, Mercury Poisoning & Boosting Your Immune System

Mercury Poisoning

Mercury has been found in some infant vaccines, silver dental fillings as well as contaminated fish.

Exposure to mercury leads to the disease we know as mercury poisoning, which can produce toxic effects in high doses.  Toxic effects include damage to the brain, kidney and lungs.

Symptoms typically include:

  • Sensory impairment (vision, speech and hearing)
  • Sensory disturbance
  • Lack of coordination

Mercury is a carcinogenic and is often partly responsible for chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic candida infections and many autoimmune diseases.

    “…I was so sick and I needed something to help me detox from toxic mold, pesticides and Lyme…”

    “The HOCATT is what initially led me to find LifeWorks.  I was so sick and I needed something to help me detox from toxic mold, pesticides and Lyme (as was diagnosed here).
    What I found at LifeWorks was a place of healing, kindness and compassion!

    Leslie in HOCATT is amazing.  She makes the experience easy and comfortable.  On my bad days, she would talk with me, give me sips of water and make sure I was comfortable.  On my good days, we would share stories and laugh! 

    I still have a ways to go on my journey of healing but every day I get stronger and healthier.  I know I have a great support system at LifeWorks.  A big thank you to everyone at this special place!  God bless you all!”

    About Dr. Minkoff

    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 attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help 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.
