Mercury Poisoning

Mercury has been found in some infant vaccines, silver dental fillings as well as contaminated fish. Exposure to mercury leads to the disease we know as mercury poisoning, which can produce toxic effects in high enough doses.

Toxic effects include damage to the brain, kidney, and lungs and symptoms typically include sensory impairment (vision, hearing, speech), disturbed sensation and a lack of coordination. Mercury is a carcinogenic and is often partly responsible for chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic candida infections and many autoimmune disease.

Many Tampa Bay residents have had exposure to high levels of mercury and have been helped by visiting LifeWorks. We can help you too, so call our Clearwater clinic for an appointment at (727) 466-6789.

About Dr. Minkoff

In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established LifeWorks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
