This episode covers the following subjects:
1:36 – Dr. Minkoff explains that it will take about 60 days to establish a new habit or routine. If you want to exercise, within about 60 days, your exercise routine will become a healthy habit that you enjoy.
3:02 – A discussion about how living long and healthy is not about your cholesterol or blood pressure, but the function of your lungs. Dr. Minkoff says that to increase your pulmonary health, you need to exert yourself. He has his patients walk for 5 minutes 3 times per week, and for the last minute, walk faster, so they feel out of breath, and then go slow again. Work it up to doing this eight times throughout a 20-25 minute walk, and within a few months your lung function will improve along with your fitness.
5:19 – Dr. Minkoff discusses how half of fitness is muscle strength, which leads to stronger bones. He advises that pushups, sit-ups, and squats should be performed on alternate days from the walking exercise, at a level that is achievable for your physical condition. He says to do these exercises until you are tired, and then stop, which could be only a few minutes at first. Within 60 days, he says you will achieve far more strength and will be easily able to do 20 or 30 pushups or whatever exercises you have chosen.
6:47 – Dr. Minkoff discusses how the importance lies in pushing yourself a little harder, whether on an elliptical trainer, stationary bike, or walking. If you challenge your body and have good nutrition, your body will change and get stronger. If you want to get older and feel and look young, this is the approach that keeps you healthy and strong as you age.
7:07 – Frankie Boyer discusses how a lack of enough protein can lead to depression, anxiety, cancers, autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis could be due to a lack of protein, and the critical importance of protein in your diet. She recommends Dr. Minkoff’s free online book, The Search for the Perfect Protein, and the BodyHealth product, PerfectAmino.
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 43 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.
