The basic cause of the artery blocking is actually inflammation

Greetings All!

A few months ago, my wife and I were in Tel Aviv for some time off. We went to a new museum that was just opened for our favorite artist. His name is Yaacov Agam. His art is very special and while we were at the museum we got to meet him. He’s in his 90’s and still creating. We had a conversation with him and he said something very profound: “When men communicate with words they can misunderstand each other, end up in disagreements and even war. With art, there is a universal language where the communication can be pure and heart to heart – and leads to no war.”

This week my wife sent me this bit of musical art that immediately made me think of Agam and his quote. This music will make your heart sing. In fact it is created from a group of Israeli handicapped musicians. It is the Israeli entry in the annual song contest for all of Europe called Eurovision. They are amazing and make the idea that there are no barriers to our humanity as one family – no matter our race, color, ability, or handicap.

Listen and enjoy!

We are a human family and true health is our understanding that.

Have a good week,
Dr. David I Minkoff, MD

Patient Testimonial

“I had stints in my leg and was on 3 different types of blood thinners. When I came to LifeWorks they recommended EECP therapy. At the time I could hardly walk. After 10 EECP treatments the pain in my leg has gone and I am more active. I am also off 2 of my blood thinners and there has been a significant improvement in my quality of life.” – C.K.

What began as an experiment blossomed into LifeWorks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
