Osteoporosis & Chronic Fatigue- Optimum Health Report #379

Osteoporosis & Chronic Fatigue causes, symptoms and natural treatment

Dear Readers,

Greetings all!

My greatest pleasure in work is to see someone who is ill, come back to life. They are in the shadows and they come back into the light. Actually, their own light begins to shine and they can again light up the world.

Some of my patients are artists and can communicate this so effectively and with enough emotion that the message resonates with many others.

This week a dear patient – a brilliant artist – sent me her thanks in the form a song. It is a message to all who suffer that they too can come out of the shadows and bring light.
Here is her message and her song…

“Dear Dr Minkoff, It is with huge gratitude that I send this song and video over to you. I worked so hard in getting better to be able to have this music to share. Thank you so much for saving my life. No one else was able to help me like you have. My song is called “Shadows”. I wanted to have the release especially for Lyme Disease Awareness month. The Lyrics chronicle the struggle for those like me with this illness and illnesses like it. With eternal blessings and love, Jean Morisson”


Have a great week,

Dr. David I Minkoff, MD

The Search for the Perfect Protein

The Search for the Perfect Protein – Dr. Minkoff’s New Book!

I’m excited to let you know that my new book, The Search for the Perfect Protein: The Key to Solving Weight Loss, Depression, Fatigue, Insomnia, and Osteoporosis, is available now!

Proteins are the basic building blocks of the human body, but the truth is that most people are malnourished in amino acids, which are required to form protein – a deficiency that can lead to diabetes, obesity, cancer, and chronic diseases.  In the book, I’ll show the healthful or harmful effects of the foods you eat regularly, and the importance of clean proteins in your diet while offering indispensable guidance on where to find them.

My book is available on paperback or Amazon Kindle.  Click here to purchase yours today.
I would be extremely grateful if you could buy the book and leave a review.

Thank you for your support!  I really appreciate it.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.

A person's spine suffering from Osteoporosis and Chronic Fatigue: we uncover the causes, symptoms and natural treatment


Osteoporosis or “brittle bone disease” has become a major health concern for many Americans. It affects far more women than men, though either sex can suffer the progressive loss of bone density that leads to fractures of the wrists, spine or hips.

Chronic Lyme Disease Symptoms

Patients whose Lyme disease goes undiagnosed for months or even years, run the risk of developing chronic Lyme disease symptoms which may include arthritis, fatigue and anxiety.

Lyme Disease can be treated with HOCATT therapy

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.
