Is Lyme Disease Playing Hide-and-go-seek with your Doctor? – Optimum Health Report #384

Lyme disease test. Is Lyme Disease Playing Hide-and-go-seek with your Doctor

Lyme disease has been called the great masquerader, meaning it can appear to be something else like Lupus, MS, Parkinson’s, Chronic Fatigue, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and others.  Most traditional physicians either misdiagnose it or treat it with long term antibiotics which are rarely successful.

About half of our patients come from out of town to be treated at LifeWorks for Lyme because treatment at other places has failed.Our success rate is very high. Just this week a patient wrote this to us:

“Before coming to LifeWorks, I had pretty much given up hope on ever feeling better or going back to work.  One of my major symptoms was hair loss and no other doctors had any answers or help. A friend told me about Dr. Minkoff and he really helped get to the root of all my symptoms and treat my Lyme disease. The non antibiotic protocol made a big difference and I knew it when I noticed my hair growing back.My hair also grew back healthier. My brain fog has gone away, I can sleep better and overall feel much better than I thought I would again!Thanks to Dr. Minkoff and everyone at LifeWorks!”

Don’t waste your time or money with treatments that will not work. Come to us and receive our proven successful methods. We are not perfect, but you will not find better care anywhere.  I can guarantee that. Call now for an appointment. Have a great week,
Dr. David I Minkoff, MD

    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.
