Is Leaky Gut the Source of Your AutoImmune DIsease? – Optimum Health Report #370

Leaky Gut - Source of Your AutoImmune Disease

Dear Readers,
Greetings all!

Another nice success came in this week. Take a read…

“Dr. Minkoff was the first to diagnose me with three tick borne illnesses after the indirect (antibody) test from my primary was false negative.

I suffered 7 years and ended up with chest pain and air hunger symptoms, walked out of my job because of mental health symptoms before finding LifeWorks. Besides being the most thorough diagnosis process I’ve ever been through, Dr Minkoff also addressed all of the secondary infections, leaky gut syndrome and balanced out my neurotransmitters, and autoimmune inflammation. They will ‘triage’ your testing and treatment to do what’s most necessary first if you tell them money is a factor.

I am back to work part-time, neurologically functional and was free from reactivated EBV for a full 6 months. LifeWorks Wellness center was a turning point in my health and future. Worth the cost and the waiting. Many Thanks!”

Have a great week,
