read gut health healthcare champions

Healthcare Champions – a new weekly show that airs on CW44_TampaBay, featuring LifeWorks’ Dr. David Minkoff.

Good Gut Health Can Determine Your Overall Health

Your gut health will determine how your body attacks the “bad guys” and absorbs the nutrition and uses the “good guys”.

Poor Gut health can end up in such symptoms as:

  • Gerd
  • Heart Burn
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Leaky Gut
  • Bloating
  • Gas
  • Diarrhea

These gut health symptoms will often be treated with drugs to prevent stomach acid. The problem with handling the gut health symptoms rather than the source means you can make the sitaution worse. If you are using acid blocking prescriptions to handle your Gerd symptoms you are allowing the “bad guys” to proceed into your intestines causing your intestinal walls to break down and leak chemicals into your body.

Hippocrates said “…all disease begins in the colon…” and that “…constipation is man’s deadliest disease…”. He’s right!

Diet is extremely important for a healthy gut. Healthy, organic, non-GMO food will support your gut health. If your gut doesn’t feel well, GERD, heartburn, bloating, gas, diarrhea, or constipation, you need someone to figure out what is wrong with your gut and get it sorted out so it can be a happy place again.

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.
