Dr. David Minkoff Initiates Health Stimulus Program

Dr. David Minkoff M.D., initiates a health stimulus program titled “Health by Numbers”, that provides free tests designed to help relieve health worries over getting cancer, diabetes, heart disease, or other debilitating diseases, in these tough economic times.

Clearwater, Fl – Dr. David Minkoff, MD, an alternative health care expert, initiates “Health by Numbers”, a health stimulus program that provides free tests designed to help relieve health worries in these tough economic times when no one can afford to be sick. The “Health by Numbers” program provides participants with detailed data on their current state of health, evaluates initial information to see if they may be at risk of developing a debilitating disease such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, or have another declining health issue, and provides advice and guidance about ways to improve their health. The first clinic to offer the program is LifeWorks Wellness Center ( in Clearwater, FL where Dr. Minkoff is the Medical Director and co-founder.

“The initial tests in the program are free. When the tests are completed, a qualified health care practitioner reviews the tests with the patient, explaining the meaning of each number, going over areas of risk or potential risk,” explains Dr. David Minkoff. “We have caught many areas of risk or potential risk that can easily be resolved before a more serious illness occurs that results in work loss and reduced income.”

Patients doing “Health by Numbers” are met by a LifeWorks healthcare practitioner, who will guide them through the 12-week program. On the initial visit, a series of free simple tests are conducted which focus on the 10 vital numbers that provide a detailed picture of a person’s health; weight, body fat, visceral fat, muscle mass, water, bone mass, basal metabolic rate, physique rating, metabolic age and antioxidant level.

During the first week’s visit, the healthcare practitioner reviews the “Health by Numbers” tests results and where needed, explains how the numbers shown can be early indicators of serious future health problems or where serious conditions may exist. Based on the test results, a program is recommended to improve the health numbers and these numbers are monitored throughout the 12-week program. Improvements in these important numbers can provide patients with the opportunity to have peace of mind and happiness.

Dr. David 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 his/her lifespan while retaining feelings of youth, energy, vitality, and health in their his/her body. The book is intended to be a handbook for the body. Dr. Minkoff also writes two online newsletters. For more information about Dr. David Minkoff and to read more of his work 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.
