In this podcast, Alex interviews Dr. David Minkoff and covers the following topics:
3:24 – Dr. Minkoff discusses how he first became interested in finding a treatment for mercury exposure while working in emergency medicine. His wife, a registered nurse, had her metal fillings removed unsafely and suffered severe health problems, beginning his journey to alternative methods of handling metal toxicity.
8:04 – A discussion of how Dr. Minkoff first established his clinic in the extra space of his wife’s nursing office in his off-hours from the ER. He then shifted to practicing his advanced treatments full time, with patients coming to his clinic from Sweden, China, and other foreign countries.
10:58 – Dr. Minkoff explains how many of his patients have been diagnosed at the top medical facilities worldwide with the most sophisticated medical testing, and yet still do not know why they suffer from conditions such as chronic fatigue. He discusses a specific patient in this situation and how he discovered underlying chronic viruses, a leaky gut, and parasites.
16:45 – An explanation of Dr. Minkoff’s education, and how he became interested in competing in marathons, and the story behind how he entered his first of 45 Iron Man competitions.
21:40 – Dr. Minkoff discusses the enjoyment he finds in competing with the best of the world’s athletes and how both he and his wife find the excitement of competition to be infectious. He feels that if you like sports, competition, and pushing yourself to the limits, these competitions can help you maintain health and stay well.
25:06 – An explanation of how Dr. Minkoff views traditional medicine and the benefits it offers. He discusses how you are far more likely to have a non-toxic, effective treatment from a nutritionist, alternative medicine doctor, chiropractor, or naturopath. It is important to have a doctor who embraces good health as a goal, rather than just disease management. He covers the statistics of traditional medicine and how 700,000 people die every year due to medical interventions.
30:10 – A discussion of the faults of the traditional medicine infrastructure and how the system is geared to treat symptoms rather than the underlying causes of the condition. He discusses how a condition that may have been developing for years is treated with medications with side effects instead of lifestyle changes, supplements, diet changes, and other approaches that are more beneficial to overall long-term health.
37:15 – An explanation of how benefits from treatments that invest in their recovery and overall health, and how individual care is critical and cannot be achieved in an appointment lasting just a few minutes. Real care requires much more time from a medical provider than is usually provided to a patient in the traditional medical system, and this approach is not in the patient’s best interests.

Dr. David 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 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 wife Sue, a Registered Nurse, became interested in nutrition and health and began to go to lectures from some of the experts in the field. At the time, Dr Minkoff was pretty fixed in his view of traditional medicine and it took a lot of convincing to get him to come to one of these lectures. After hearing Dr Jeffrey Bland speak, Dr Minkoff had a eureka moment and began pursuing the alternative field with a vengeance. Based on this new knowledge Dr Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic in 1997 to help some 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. In the process, he gained expertise in Biological medicine, integrative oncology, 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. Dr Minkoff is one of the most in demand speakers in the field and wrote an Amazon best selling book called The Search For The Perfect Protein.
The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a catalyst for founding BodyHealth.Com, a nutrition company that now manufactures and distributes cutting-edge nutritional solutions for the many health problems of today. Dr. Minkoff writes two free online newsletters, “The Optimum Health Report” and ”The BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter”, to help others learn about optimum health and fitness.
Dr. Minkoff is an avid athlete himself and has completed 44 Ironman Triathlons. To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teachers to others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a life free of pain and full of energy.
