Dr. Minkoff is an alternative healthcare expert, guest lecturer, writer, tv and radio show guest. He also authors two weekly newsletters, the BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter and the Optimum Health Report. 
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. 

In this episode our very own Holistic Health Practitioner Tonya Fines sits down with the very fit and energetic Dr Minkoff to discuss his latest book, The Search for the Perfect Protein.


"While regular medical practice if you have an emergency... these things are wonderful and they really help people but virtually for all the chronic diseases that people have, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, rheumatoid arthritis, auto-immune disease, Alzheimer's, MS, it's virtually worthless because none of the treatments actually target what's wrong.."


"I think that the people who aren't eating are organic are just virtually taking their life in their hands."

-Dr David Minkoff
