In this podcast, Christina discusses mystery diseases and testing for Lyme disease and mold with Dr. David Minkoff.

This episode of the Wellness Realness podcast covers:

  • 8:56 – Dr. Minkoff discusses his holistic medical practice and his focus on treating people with chronic illnesses, including autoimmune diseases, neurological diseases, Parkinson’s, MS, Alzheimer’s, Lyme disease, and cancers, in addition to helping athletes optimize their performance. He covers his background and the story behind Lifeworks Wellness Center and BodyHealth, a nutritional supplement brand dedicated to bringing the highest-quality supplements to everyone.
  • 11:31 – An explanation of Dr. Minkoff’s journey from traditional medicine to alternative medicine, how he encountered mercury toxicity in his own family, and how he shifted his practice from emergency medicine to one of the largest holistic medical practices in the USA.
  • 19:58 – Dr. Minkoff discusses parasites, low-grade infections, herpes type six, Epstein Barr, and Lyme disease. He covers how treating infections with standard antibiotic therapy often is unsuccessful and can make the patient sicker. He covers toxic mold and the inflammatory response triggered in the body with mysterious symptoms such as anxiety, depression, lack of energy, and stress. He explains how, in such cases, standard medical testing is unable to detect the actual cause of the condition.
  • 31:49 – Dr. Minkoff discusses heavy metal toxicity and that chelation, when performed incorrectly, can exacerbate the symptoms due to an overload of toxins released into the bloodstream. He covers how a bad gut biome and toxic liver play a role in how the body responds to treatment and how a treatment plan must address the patient’s health priorities in the correct sequence to treat heavy metal toxicity successfully.
  • 37:19 – A discussion of a patient who appeared healthy but was suffering from sky-high toxic mold levels with severe symptoms, even though she had eaten vegan for three years. She was heavily nutritionally compromised, with low amino acids, no vitamin D, and deficient in omega-three fatty acids. He discusses the process of identifying the actual cause of her symptoms and how she improved when the root cause of her situation was addressed.
  • 41:15 – A discussion of how Dr. Minkoff became interested in European Biological Medicine, during which he recommends a revealing documentary. He and Christina Rice discuss finding a dentist who will work with a high level of safety and will not put your health at risk, and that there is no health without a healthy mouth.

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.
