Lyme for 17 Years – Now I’m Healthy!

Happy middle aged woman dancing near a lake, thankful for finally receiving the Lyme treatment she needed

For LifeWorks Wellness Center… you’re the bomb.

I think we are all works in progress. Dr. Minkoff, I am sure, would agree!

I was diagnosed in 1983 with Lyme and have had the experience of treating the symptoms with “band aids” whether it was antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, drawers full of supplements and homeopathic remedies. Then I had a horse with a career ending injury. I began ozone (my own concoctions…) on him and me.

Dr. Minkoff put me straight and over the years through his insights he has had the daunting task of fine tuning my health regimen! He found secondary and tertiary problems with the Lyme that had been left untreated. I was sick.

After caring for a very sick husband for several years, Dr. Minkoff revisited what I needed to do. I cannot say enough about his PerfectAmino’s… don’t think, just take them! I lost 30 pounds and easily put on enough muscle to be asked to model my new body … no I didn’t. The point is that I have been given a new opportunity to feel well and accomplish new interests in a dynamic and healthy way, lucky. Carlabeth and I talk about this trajectory I am on. Where would I be without her!

So, if you are reading this, I wish you encouragement and am so pleased for you that you have found yourself in Dr. Minkoff’s inspired and capable hands. Be well!

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.
