Chronic Illness: A Light at the End of the Tunnel – Optimum Health Report #386

A man walking on a railroad, symbolizing Inflammation and its Connection to Disease

Greetings All!

Chronic illness is no fun. In the right hands there can be light at the end of the tunnel. Many of our patients have seen up to thirteen doctors before coming to LifeWorks and finding their health return. Here is a recent patient’s success:

“The last 3 days I have experienced a significant shift and I can clearly see the progress and decline in all symptoms.  Neuropathy in feet and hands is declining and I sense the beginning of autonomic recovery.  Brain inflammation is down, CSF mobility and blood flow has improved.  Mental, emotional and psychological stability is noted.   I am expecting the hyponatremia issue to resolve as the brain settles down.  I am now very optimistic and grateful to be at LifeWorks.”

A life of sickness is not fun. One can heal if one gets the right treatment.
Call us and we will help.

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.
