EMF Exposure and Your Health: Why an Entire Country Banned the Use of 5G Technology

EMF Exposure and Your Health: Why an Entire Country Banned the Use of 5G Technology

by Dr. David Minkoff November 05, 2020 5 min read 0 Comments

Since the advent of cellphones, there has been an ongoing debate as to whether electromagnetic fields (EMF) and radiation from consumer electronics, especially those with wireless connections, are harmful to human health.

This debate has raged for decades and has gotten more intense with the release of 5G technology. Belgium, for example, banned the use of 5G in the country until further research was completed and proved the system safe. A top Belgian politician who spearheaded the litigation to block 5G stated:

“I cannot welcome such technology if the radiation standards, which must protect the citizen, are not respected, 5G or not. The people of Brussels are not guinea pigs whose health I can sell at a profit. We cannot leave anything to doubt” - Celine Fremault

Everything You MUST Know About Vitamin B12

Everything You MUST Know About Vitamin B12

by Dr. David Minkoff October 26, 2020 5 min read 0 Comments

Imagine yourself in a group of 100 people – roughly half of the number that will fit in the average movie theater. Now consider this: Roughly 15 of those people are actively suffering from a B12 deficiency. They are tired, weak, predisposed to illness, suffer from memory loss and nerve dysfunction. Some experience fairly severe symptoms, while others are gradually feeling worse – usually without even realizing it!

And no – this is not a joke or an exaggeration. According to the National Institute of Health, up to 15% of people are deficient in B12, which makes it one of the most common nutritional deficiencies.

With this in mind, we believe it is important that everyone becomes educated on this critical nutrient: What it is, what it does for your body, where to get it, how to avoid a deficiency, and then finally, the BEST ways to reap the benefits of having optimal B12 levels.

Sound good? Read on.

by Dr. David Minkoff October 22, 2020 8 min read 0 Comments

Over the last 50 years, “fat” has become a bad word.

Fortunately, this couldn’t be further from the truth, according to modern scientific research by experts in the health field.

Dietary fats, in their pure, unadulterated forms, are exceptionally healthy – especially when consumed in proper ratios. They are involved in many important bioactive functions, let's review these...

    The Risks of Obesity: Your Heart, Inflammation, and What to Do About It

    The Risks of Obesity: Your Heart, Inflammation, and What to Do About It

    by Dr. David Minkoff October 08, 2020 5 min read 0 Comments

    According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from the CDC, approximately 40% of adults in the USA suffer from obesity, and this number has been on the rise over the last several decades. According to a recent study, obesity is the leading cause of preventable death in the USA.

    When you put numbers to that, we are talking about over 70 million Americans – and another 99 million who are overweight, possibly on the path to becoming obese. Over $100 billion is spent each year on healthcare for obesity-related health conditions.

    This is, by far, one of the most significant factors in American health today.

    The Link Between Depression, Antibiotics, and the Life Saving Benefits of Good Gut Flora

    The Link Between Depression, Antibiotics, and the Life Saving Benefits of Good Gut Flora

    Physicians over thousands of years have observed a link between a patient’s mental state and how swiftly they recover. It is a long-standing axiom that people who are determined to get better and maintain a healthy frame of mind recover more quickly, with better results.

    But what if we told you that it’s a two-way street? That specific health conditions can cause conditions like depression and anxiety?

    In 1931, decades before the first antidepressant and antianxiety medications had been developed, a physician named Yaskin discovered that clinical depression is the earliest manifestation of pancreatic cancer. Further research demonstrated that patients who suffered from gastrointestinal malignancies carried the greatest risk of suicide – which was one of the first science-based flags indicating that the digestive system can have an impact on mental health.

    Toxins, Eating Organic, and Your Athletic Performance

    Toxins, Eating Organic, and Your Athletic Performance

    by Dr. David Minkoff September 24, 2020 6 min read 0 Comments

    The simplest way to reduce toxins in your body is to avoid them. Despite today’s crazy world that has toxins everywhere, there are steps you can take that will reduce your toxin intake. This gives your body a chance to get rid of the “backlog” and catch up.

    1. Eat ORGANIC. One of the most important ways to reduce toxicity is to eat foods that are certified organic. Not only do these foods contain higher nutrient densities to supply your body with what it needs, but they are free from the pesticides and chemicals present in most food.
    2. Avoid exercising and training in a densely populated city (when possible). As an athlete, your respiratory system is much more active – and training in a city with high levels of pollution means you are inhaling toxins just by breathing.
    3. Avoid any household products that have artificial fragrances. Artificial fragrances are toxic and should be avoided.
    4. Stay away from pesticides.
    5. Avoid highly-processed foods, as these are generally chock full of toxic chemicals.
    6. Stay away from products that contain BPA, which means avoiding plastic bottles, cardboard, and cans as much as possible.
    7. Avoid the use of non-stick cookware, as the coating contains harmful chemical compounds that can enter your food and be consumed.

    Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has been used for centuries as a natural herbal remedy for those who fall ill.

    Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest,” and it has been noted as early as the 5th century BC as a medicinal tonic – forever cementing it as a staple in human nutrition.

    But, it wasn’t until recently that we understood WHY it is so helpful to the body. And with this understanding came advanced methods of harnessing the incredible power of this medicinal plant.

    According to the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly one in five adults in the U.S. live with a mental illness. Many of these people have been prescribed medication to treat conditions such as depression, ADHD, anxiety, and hundreds of other cataloged mental disorders.

    But what if these mental illnesses weren’t the result of an imbalance in the brain, but instead were caused by something as simple as a yeast infection?

    Well, we are not about to make a ridiculous statement like “All depression is caused by candida” or anything like that, but today we’re going to honestly review what effects an overgrowth of candida can have on your body and your mental health.

    Furthermore, we’re going to provide guidance on how to resolve a candida infection.

    Veganism, Protein &amp; <em>The Game Changers</em>: A Hard Truth

    Veganism, Protein & The Game Changers: A Hard Truth

    by Dr. David Minkoff July 30, 2020 8 min read 0 Comments

    One of the more popular recent voices on the subject promotes a plant-based diet in a big way: The Game Changers. This Netflix special proposes eliminating meat from your diet and replacing it with plant-based sources of protein and nutrition.

    Having spent years as a vegan and understanding the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle, I couldn’t help but agree with many of the points brought to light in the film.

    As a medical doctor, I saw a fundamental flaw in his information: plant-based proteins do not contain enough of each essential amino acid for most of to provide their bodies the wherewithall to optimize body protein synthesis. This is a fact observed through my own experience, through the experience of my patients, and backed by scientific research.

    Charging Your Body's Electrical System

    You know that the cardiovascular system is responsible for pumping blood and oxygen throughout your system, right? And that the endocrine system manages hormones? And that your nervous system relays messages throughout your body?

    Well, underlying all these systems is an astoundingly complex electrical system.

    This electrical system is busy sending an almost uncountable number of messages to the muscles, bones, brain, and the cells. The human brain is the home to approximately 100 billion neurons, each firing about 200 times every second.
