Undiagnosed Lyme for 32 Years! – Optimum Health Report #378

Some of our patients have been suffering from undiagnosed Lyme for 32 Years!

When you watch the following video you will most likely cry. The story is so moving that our videographer did cry.

The combination of Lyme and mold toxicity can be devastating and in this patient’s case, made her appear to the medical profession and her family as if she was psychotic.

But she wasn’t. Her brain was toxic.

Watch the following video and if you or someone you know needs help, then call us. We can help.

Have a great week,

Dr. David I Minkoff, MD

Patient Testimonial

“I came to see Dr. Minkoff in November 2017. I had been diagnosed with MS for years but never truly believed that was my true issue. After 8 years of fighting with this I came to see Dr. Minkoff. He has since correctly diagnosed me with Lyme disease. I have now been off all my MS meds for over one year! I feel better now than I have truly felt since before 2009. Everyone at LifeWorks has been awesome. I’m so thankful and blessed that I found Dr. Minkoff. I wish I had heard about all the great people and Dr. Minkoff years ago. Thank you all!” – Geni D

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 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.
