Dr. Wallach's Core
Dr. Joel Wallach and Dead Doctors Dont Lie. Chances are that by now
you have heard of this health care revolutionary and his famous and
controversial audio cassette tape (which at last count has sold over 50 million
copies). Over the past 5 years, Dr. Wallach has created a
health care phenomena in America and has struck a chord with
the American people with his do-it-yourself, common sense, nutritionally based
approach to health and longevity. Dr. Wallachs orientation towards health
care places a premium on prevention. His prescription
is simple and applies to practically any disease: Give your body all of the 90 essential nutrients that it
manufacture itself, give it the basic building blocks it needs and you will
be amazed at its ability to heal itself and to keep itself healthy. Contrast
this with the typical medical doctors prescriptions of potentially dangerous
drugs and exorbitantly expensive surgeries and it is no wonder why Americans
have embraced Dr. Wallachs message with such fervor.
You may ask,
what was it that influenced Dr. Wallach to dedicate his life to a persevering search for
the true, root causes of human disease? What was it that drove him to question
medical dogma and to take on the omnipotent, mainstream medical establishment in America?
The answers to these questions lie in a series of seminal events beginning during Dr.
As a young
boy, Dr. Wallach grew up on a beef farm in Missouri. Observant, even at an early age, Dr.
Wallach noticed that his father added vitamins, minerals and trace minerals to the cattle
feed. However, his father found it unnecessary to add these same nutrients to the
vegetables and grains he farmed for his family. This, despite the fact that these crops
came from the very same fields as the cattle feed. Dr. Wallach was fascinated why his
father went to such a great deal of trouble for his cattle but not for his own family. He
probed his father for an answer to this question, but his father, an austere man who did
not share Dr. Wallachs inquisitive nature, admonished him not to question his
continued to try to find a satisfactory answer to this question as an animal husbandry and
nutrition major at the University of Missouri School of Agriculture. However, it was not
until he became a veterinary student at the University of Missouri that he finally
discovered the answer. Farmers add nutrients to animal feeds but not
to crops eaten by humans because they dont have medical insurance for their
livestock. If there was such a thing as medical insurance for livestock it would
drive the price of beef, poultry and dairy so high that no one could afford them. Dr.
Wallach found that farmers and ranchers avoid this by placing an emphasis on preventing
diseases in animals through nutrition. This approach significantly reduces and in most
cases eliminates the need for animal health care.
graduation from veterinary school, Dr. Wallach went to work with Marlin Perkins, founder
of the popular Mutual of Omahas Wild Kingdom television program. Initially, Dr.
Wallach worked as a wildlife veterinarian in Africa accompanying the Mutual of Omaha film
crew. After two years working in Africa, Dr. Wallach returned to the U.S. and worked
for Mr. Perkins under a grant, the purpose of which was to study the effects of pollution
on ecology and the environment. Dr. Wallachs job was to perform autopsies on
humans and on a variety of animal species at the National Institutes of Health. During the
next 12 years, Dr. Wallach performed 3000 human autopsies in addition to 17,500 autopsies
on over 454 species of animals. While conducting comparative research at the NIH, Dr.
Wallach compiled an impressive body of data in human and animal pathology and published
his research findings in Americas finest scientific journals. But there was one
overriding finding which represented a common theme to all of Dr. Wallachs research.
In his own words, Dr. Wallach discovered that: "Every animal
and every human being who dies of natural causes, dies of a nutritional deficiency
disease!" Dr. Wallach further discovered that practically every disease,
especially chronic degenerative diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's,
osteoporosis, and arthritis, has as its root cause, a deficiency in one or more nutrients.
For example, cardiomyopathy, the leading cause of heart disease, can be traced to a
deficiency in selenium and copper; diabetes has as its root cause deficiencies in the
minerals chromium and vanadium.
This was a
radical departure from the prevailing medical wisdom of the time. Although, it was known
that there was some relationship between nutrition and disease prevention, Dr.
Wallachs research strongly indicated that there was a much more direct and
relationship between these two factors than was previously believed. After publishing
these research findings in over 75 scientific papers, 8 multi-authored textbooks and his
own textbook on comparative medicine, Dr. Wallach gained a great deal of media attention
and his controversial theories became a lightning rod for criticism from the mainstream
medical establishment in America. During this time, Dr. Wallach was quoted in over 1700
newspaper articles worldwide and appeared on ABCs news program, 20 / 20
of his scientific and media exposure, Dr. Wallach was having a very difficult time
persuading people in positions of authority, either in medical research or in politics, to
make recommendations consistent with the compelling evidence he had compiled. Frustrated
with his attempts to get such firmly entrenched institutions as the American Medical
Association and the Food and Drug Administration to heed or even to consider his ideas, Dr. Wallach
decided to return to school in Portland, Oregon and to become a physician himself. He was
determined to prove, unequivocally, that diseases can be prevented and treated in human
beings using nutrition and nutritional formulas just as they had been in animals for
practiced naturopathic and nutritional medicine for 12 years in Oregon and this practical
experience confirmed the discoveries he had made as a researcher. Specifically,
he found that human diseases could indeed be very effectively treated and prevented in
human beings using nutrition. For example, Dr. Wallach successfully treated
cardiomyopathy disease (a weakening of the heart muscle) using the minerals selenium and
copper, treated high blood pressure using calcium, and treated diabetes using the
minerals chromium and vanadium.
Dr. Wallach met with such success treating patients employing nutritional strategies
that word began to spread far and wide. Requests for his nutritional formulas began
to swamp his office. Rather than restricting himself to an individual practice,
Dr. Wallach began to feel called upon to spread his message through publication
and lecturing. To this end, he published his first popular book entitled "Lets
Play Doctor" (1989) and began accepting speaking engagements. An
audio recording of one of his lectures was later published under the, now famous,
title "Dead Doctors Don't Lie" (1993).
Initially marketed by nothing more than word of mouth, "Dead Doctors Don't
Lie" absolutely caught fire with the American Public. In addition to the public interest in Dead Doctors Don't Lie
, numerous nutritional supplement companies began to use the tape as the perfect tool
for marketing their products, further accelerating the tape's popularity.
To date, 50 million copies of the tape have been sold and distributed around
the world. The tape and its message of health through self-help has had
a heavy impact on how Americans are learning to think about health and longevity.
If you think about it what has happened during the past
eight years is nothing short of amazing. A local, small town physician (applying
wisdom garnered as a veterinarian!) starts a nationwide and increasingly world wide
revolution in health care with a simple lecture advising Americans to take back control of
their health. Never before in American history has one audio tape generated
such intense interest at a grass roots level. Why the appeal, one might ask?
Perhaps it is because the core message communicated on Dr. Wallach's Dead Doctors
Don't Lie tape is straightforward and requires only common sense (as
opposed to a medical degree) to understand:
Be your own primary caregiver:
Your health is your responsibility! Take in all 90 nutrients
essential to human health on a daily basis and you not only provide your body with the
tools it needs to function optimally, you give yourself your best shot at both preventing
and in some cases reversing degenerative disease.
Today, Dr. Wallach continues to lecture, doing over 300
speaking engagements per year in addition to numerous radio talk show appearances and his
own nationally syndicated radio show. Since the release of his Dead Doctors Dont
Lie audio tape Dr. Wallach has published the tape Trust Me Im A Doctor
and a second popular book entitled, "Rare Earths: Forbidden Cures" (1996).
Finding that many companies have used his message to market products of
inferior quality, Dr. Wallach took on perhaps his most ambitious project in April of 1997
launching his very own nutritional supplement company, American Longevity.
*Whenever the term "colloidal minerals" is used in association with Dr. Joel Wallach or his famous audio tape Dead Doctors Don't Lie, it is important to note that Dr. Joel Wallach is referring to organic colloidal minerals. Organic colloidal minerals are minerals that have been processed through a plant, a fact which greatly increases the rate at which the human body can absorb these minerals. Dr. Joel Wallach is NOT referring to colloidal minerals mined from inorganic sources such as seabeds or clays. Many of Americas largest colloidal minerals companies sell inorganic colloidal minerals.
