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 is board certified in Pediatrics and has completed a Fellowship
in Infectious Diseases at the University of California in San
Diego, which included research in developing new medicines to fight
viral disease. As a clinical faculty member at the University, he
also served as co-director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at
Palomar Medical Center. 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 was
Board eligible in Emergency Medicine and worked for 12 years at
Community Hospital of New Port Richey, Florida which ranked in the
top 100 chest pain hospitals in the U.S.
In 1995, his wife Sue, an RN become interested in nutrition and
biochemistry. As her interest increased, she brought Dr Minkoff on
board and his curiosity bloomed into a passion. Dr. Minkoff went on
a search to find the best way to cure the ailing body and improve
performance of any body. That transitioned him out of Emergency
Medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the
answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine,
heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone
replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural
and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition, Integrative
Oncology, and acupuncture. He studied under the masters in each of
these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right.
The answers he found were soon in demand. In response to this,
he and his wife, Sue, established LifeWorks Wellness Center in 1997
and it quickly became one of the largest complementary and
alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a
catalyst for founding BodyHealth in 2000, a nutrition company that
now manufactures and distributes products with cutting-edge
solutions for the many health problems 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.
To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teaches to
others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a
life free of pain and full of energy.
