Staying Healthy in a Toxic Environment - Optimum Health Report #388

Staying Healthy in a Toxic Environment  - Optimum Health Report #388

Dear Readers,

Here in Clearwater and in many cities across the country the water is fluoridated. By city mandate, our city adds fluoride to the water supply. One doesn’t get a choice or not if he wants it.

You must take active measures to take it out of your water that you drink or bathe in. I am bringing this up now because a new major study was published last month in JAMA Pediatrics showing that pregnant women had lowered IQs in their male children if they were exposed to fluoride during their pregnancy. The study and explanation are here:

It’s a tragic misuse of public health policy.

So what do you do?

Filter your shower water and filter your drinking water so that the fluoride doesn’t get into your body.

Here are some examples:

  • For drinking water
  • For shower:  this is the only one that I found that will reduce fluoride and chlorine plus many other contaminants. It’s a bit more expensive but works much better.

So if you want to protect your body and your children’s bodies from contaminants in the water supply get either a whole house filter system with reverse osmosis under the sink, or see the filters mentioned above.

It will save you from falling IQ and save your brain so you can think when you’re old. Oh, and skip the fluoride tooth paste. It’s just as bad.

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

toxic environment

Environmental Toxins

Environmental toxins surround us. Though some are naturally occurring, most are byproducts of industrialization. These environmental toxins permeate water, soil, air, household items, cosmetics, and our food supply.

“There are 80,000 chemicals in the environment now that weren’t here 100 years ago”

Watch Dr. Minkoff talk about Environmental Toxins.

ozone therapy


Hocatt stands for “Hyperthermic Ozone and Carbonic Acid Transdermal Technology” and the machine acts as a personal ozone steam sauna, in which patients sit with just their head exposed to the air, while their body receives the benefits of an infusion of ozone, carbon dioxide, steam, Photon light and oxygen.

I've been a Natural Health advocate since 1975. I did all of the right things, exercise, eat organically grown foods whenever possible, and except for working real hard, I generally led a life of moderation. In 1991 I had even removed all of the many amalgam dental fillings from my mouth, when I became aware of the Mercury content within. Mercury is not our friend.

So, when I became gravely ill in 2001, I wasn't sure where to go. Through an associate, I learned about Lifeworks Wellness Center, a clinic in downtown Clearwater, that specialized in complimentary medicine. I was not a fan of drugs or surgery, so going the "traditional" route was not an option. Dr Minkoff took the time to explain, in plain language, what exactly was occurring. Long story short, I was diagnosed with Heavy Metal Toxicity, with levels of Mercury & Platinum that were off the charts!! I was lucky to be alive, my vital life signs were at about 30%.

He further explained that Mercury may actually migrate from the amalgam fillings and deposit into the brain tissue and reproductive organs, (who knew?). Unfortunately for me, back in 1991, there were few options for dental crowns, they were either porcelain coated metal crowns, or gold/platinum crowns. So unbeknownst to me, not only was I still carrying the Mercury toxicity burden inside my body, but it was actually further aggravated by creating a battery type effect in my head, with the addition of two of the best conductors of electricity, gold and platinum (my uninformed choice for dental crowns). So my poor little neurotransmitters were really struggling to function, and I was going down hill fast!

Dr. Minkoff's clinic was able to design a comprehensive protocol to detoxify my body of the Heavy Metals. The process did take some time, and the friendly staff at the clinic were very supportive throughout. I did have to remove all of the metal from my mouth again, and I was able to regain my health completely.

I highly recommend Lifeworks Wellness Center to anyone who is struggling to survive, or if they're simply looking to achieve optimal health. In 2001 I was simply striving to survive, however today I'm experiencing wonderful health.

Thank You Lifeworks
