This podcast covers the following topics:
5:45 – Dr. Minkoff talks about his clinic, Lifeworks Wellness Center, how it started, his medical education, experience, and qualifications. His residency was in pediatrics, followed by a fellowship in infectious diseases during the early days of the AIDS epidemic. His wife became ill in 1996 after having her mercury fillings replaced by a dentist who failed to protect her from breathing the mercury in gas form during the process.
8:53 – Dr. Minkoff explains the various health conditions his wife suffered after being exposed to high levels of mercury and her subsequent diagnosis of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. A few weeks later, her liver became painful and swollen. Dr. Minkoff sent her to the liver specialist in his hospital, who discovered she had inflammation of the liver. Her symptoms continued to worsen, affecting her ability to lift her arms, and Dr. Minkoff then sent her to a neurologist who told them she might have multiple sclerosis.
10:32 – The doctor then wanted to put Dr. Minkoff’s wife on prednisone (a steroid) and interferon – both of which can cause significant adverse effects. At this point, he felt that things just weren’t adding up. By chance, Dr. Minkoff then encountered a “natural dentist” and described her symptoms. The dentist told him these were symptoms of mercury toxicity and recommended Dr. Minkoff attend a course given by a doctor in Seattle, which he did.
12:18 – After undergoing a heavy metal detoxification program, his wife’s symptoms went away, her thyroid and liver normalized, and her autoimmune symptoms and nervous system weaknesses disappeared. On his days off, Dr. Minkoff then began treating his friends at no charge to see what happened with their chronic diseases, including colitis, intestinal cystitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and achieved remarkable success.
13:01 – Dr. Minkoff discusses meeting with doctors who were working with high-end athletes from the Tour de France, the Nike track team, and some field athletes. These doctors began sending their patients over and seeing remarkable improvements from removing heavy metals from their systems. Dr. Minkoff then developed his first product, Metal Free, which has since been used by tens of thousands of people with great results. Dr. Minkoff is now in a 14,000 square foot clinic with every type of diagnostic machine or device that will help the body heal naturally.
15:15 – Dr. Minkoff recounts a story of a patient who suffered from mold toxicity and had been to doctor after doctor, with no result, arriving in a wheelchair. Within six weeks, she was walking again.
18:57 – Dr. Minkoff discusses mercury poisoning and how the effects of the metal are related to the quantity that enters the system and any pre-existing conditions. He speaks on how long it took the dental profession to admit that the mercury in fillings was dangerous to human health.
22:25 – Dr. Minkoff describes how to lose weight safely and how the first step in treating chronic illness is addressing diet. Dr. Minkoff puts his patients on a ketogenic diet or paleo diet. He has discovered that 60 to 70 percent of people are hypothyroid, or low thyroid, and overweight.
26:09 – A discussion about thyroid medicine and how it is sourced from pigs, which are genetically close to humans. He speaks about men with big love handles and who have belly fat, explaining how their hormone balance is off.
31:05 – An explanation about how the environment is far more toxic than it once was, as the soil is saturated with glyphosate (Roundup), and of thousands of people he has tested, every person has this chemical in its system, as it is in the food, air, and groundwater.
32:30 – A description of why glyphosate (Roundup) is dangerous to the body, as it is an antibiotic that happens to kill weeds. Once in the intestine, it creates tiny holes in the system, a condition called “leaky gut.” It is just one of over 80,000 chemicals in the environment that have little testing for safety, which is why you need to eat organic food.
35:04 – An explanation of how Dr. Minkoff treats asthma and ADHD and how a child’s health reflects the foods they eat. He describes a treatment performed with acupressure to reset the nervous system, but how addressing gut health is the first step to improving these conditions.
38:57 – More information about allergies and how resolving gut issues by improving diet is always the first step. Dr. Minkoff speaks about a documentary on the physical problems after having a root canal and explains how the bacteria go from the periodontal treatment to the heart, which can affect artery health.
44:02 – Dr. Minkoff talks about Lifeworks Wellness Center, his supplement company BodyHealth, the products they have formulated, and his book “The Search for the Perfect Protein,” which you can read for free by going to his website or purchasing on Amazon.
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.
