Clearwater, FL – Dr. David Minkoff, M.D. , alternative healthcare expert, celebrates the 5th anniversary of his Optimum Health Report. First published as an online newsletter in
December 2003, the Optimum Health Report brings timely health information, to its thousands of readers.

The fall of 2003 found Dr. Minkoff, M.D, a complementary and alternative healthcare expert, guest lecturer, writer, and radio show guest and host, buried in emails from people asking him questions about health, fitness and nutritional supplements. He wanted to answer each question personally, but his schedule was already stretched to its limit, so he created the online Optimum Health Report. It is a platform to answer questions and provide its readers with useful information to help them achieve their optimum health.

Dr. Minkoff defines optimum health as follows, “Optimum Health: “A person whose body is in excellent condition, with plentiful energy and freedom from pain. The body of a person with optimum health should be able to deal with routine environmental stressors without breaking down, and should be able to recover quickly after physical insults. It should allow a person trouble-free performance so that he or she can enjoy the maximum lifespan of his or her genetic endowment.”

“Health is not a static state,” continues Dr. Minkoff, “it is determined by the daily lifestyle choices you make and the inherited strengths and weaknesses of your body. All individuals have their own unique optimum health for their body. This optimum state is a condition that can be measured by both objective and subjective indicators.”

In addition to writing journal articles and speaking engagements, Dr. Minkoff writes the Optimum Health Report to empower individuals about their health. For more information or to sign-up for a free subscription visit

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 worked as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron (a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease), co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine until 1995. At that time, his wife became sick with an illness no physician could diagnose. Not accepting an uncertain prognosis, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her that led him out of emergency medicine into alternative medicine to find the answers. As a result of his advanced studies, his wife is now in good health and enjoying racing in triathlons.

Dr. Minkoff currently devotes his time to writing and research. The book he is writing, How To Live To 120 and Feel Like 35, explores the difference between chronological age and biological age and explains the steps one can take to lengthen their lifespan while retaining feelings of youth, energy, vitality, and health in their body. The book is intended to be a handbook for the body. For more information about Dr. David Minkoff and to read more of his work visit
