Must You Supplement?

"The American Medical Profession has killed more American with a single sentence than all of the foreign armies of the world and that sentence is ' You can get everything you need from your four food groups.'"----Dr. Joel Wallach,1996

When we were growing up we were told that if we ate a well balanced, disciplined diet, one including foods from each of the four basic food groups, we could get all the nutrients we need to stay healthy and prevent illness and disease. The wisdom of achieving health by eating foods from the four basic food groups has traditionally been embraced and rarely questioned by the American public. This is largely due to the four basic food groups idea being endorsed and promoted by the mainstream medical establishment in America and to this idea being taught to children in the American public school system.

Dr. Joel Wallach was one of the first health practitioners to question the wisdom of this approach. He conducted hundreds of human autopsies while working as a comparative researcher at the National Institutes of Health. These autopsies revealed that the vast majority of deaths were caused by diseases brought on by nutritional deficiencies. This was a startling revelation! How could it be possible that despite the recommendations of the medical doctors and a concentrated effort to educate Americans about the necessity of eating a well balanced diet most Americans were dying of nutritional deficiency diseases?

Dr. Wallach believed that the answer lied in the nutritional content of the foods we eat. His research and his knowledge of the research conducted by other leading scientists led to four revolutionary discoveries which Dr. Wallach has summarized on his famous Dead Doctors Donít Lie  audio tape:

A. There are far more nutrients essential to human health than was previously believed. In fact there are 90 essential nutrients and these nutrients fall in to 4 major categories: the amino acids, the fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. The minerals comprise 60 of the 90 nutrients and fall into three sub-categories: 1> the major minerals---the minerals most Americans are already familiar with such as calcium, potassium, etc; 2> the trace minerals--i.e., minerals such as selenium and copper which Americans are becoming increasingly familiar with due to recent research demonstrating their importance; 3> the rare earth minerals-minerals which are difficult to detect due to their size and scarcity yet which play a role, often as a catalyst or enabling constituent in the biology of the human body.

B. A deficiency in any one of the 90 essential nutrients causes, on average, ten different diseases. For example, Dr. Wallach found that a deficiency in calcium can cause muscle cramps and twitches, osteoporosis, hypertension, arthritis, loose teeth, gingivitis, insomnia, kidney stones, bone spurs, heel spurs, lower back pain, and PMS.  

C. Foods grown in American soils are remarkably deficient in the minerals necessary for human nutrition. This fact is evidenced by Senate Document 264 and a large body of research presented at the 1993 World Health Summit in Rio De Janeiro. Further evidence of the extreme difficulty of getting all of the nutrients we need solely from the food we eat was reported by Peter Jennings in an April 7,1998 episode of World News Tonight in his summary of the research findings of the National Institute of Medicine. Even the government is beginning to concede that we are living in an age in which we simply can not get the nutrition we need, either vitamins or minerals, from the food we eat.

D Minerals serve as catalysts, facilitating our bodies ability to use the other three types of nutrients. In other words, without a full complement of EACH of the 60 essential minerals our bodies are unable to fully utilize the amino acids, fatty acids and vitamins we give it on a daily basis!

The sum total of Dr. Wallachís research led him to one vitally important conclusion:

"YOU MUST TAKE MINERAL SUPPLEMENTS ON A DAILY BASIS TO ACHIEVE VITAL HEALTH AND LONGEVITY!!"

On his famous Dead Doctors Donít Lie  tape, Dr. Wallach describes three different kinds of mineral supplements: metallic minerals, chelated metallic minerals and organic colloidal minerals*. Metallic minerals are very similar to the minerals one finds in rocks and soils and are the type one would find in most of the popular tablet form mineral supplements such as Centrum, Centrum Silver, Theragram and One-a-Day. Chelated minerals are metallic minerals wrapped by an enzyme or an amino acid through a process called chelation. Chelated mineral supplements are generally much more expensive but also much more effective than metallic mineral supplements. Organic colloidal minerals are minerals which have been processed through a plant, hence the term "organic." Organic colloidal minerals are found naturally in fruits, vegetables, grains and nuts (though, as is noted above, at alarmingly low levels). They are, therefore, in the exact form that the human body is designed to use. Organic colloidal minerals are somewhat more expensive than chelated minerals but are vastly more effective than either metallic or chelated minerals for two very important reasons        

The first is increased absorbability.  When a mineral travels from the soil into the roots and stems of a plant it undergoes a biochemical transformation. Specifically, the mineralís electromagnetic charge is changed from positive to negative. When a mineralís electromagnetic charge changes from positive to negative our bodies ability to absorb that mineral is enhanced dramatically. This is because our stomach and intestinal lining have a positive electromagnetic charge. Therefore, when a negatively charged organic colloidal mineral comes in contact with our positively charged digestive tract, a natural gradient is created across which the mineral is absorbed directly and expediently into the blood stream. In fact, organic colloidal minerals are anywhere from 90--98% absorbable. By comparison, chelated minerals are only 35--40% absorbable and metallic minerals, because they are not bound to a carrying agent are only 5--10% absorbable. To make things worse, our bodies ability to absorb metallic and chelated minerals decreases as we age, making us more susceptible to a myriad of mineral deficiency diseases. 

The second benefit is non-toxicity.  The same electromagnetic transformation which makes organic colloidal minerals extremely absorbable also makes them non toxic. Because organic colloidal minerals are very similar to the minerals found in the foods we eat they are easily recognized and eliminated by our bodies when they are not used. The body has a much more difficult time recognizing and eliminating metallic and chelated metallic minerals and therefore tends to store what it does not use in the bodyís liver and fatty cells. Metallic minerals in our body's cells can eventually build to toxic levels and act as stressors on our body. For example, excess metallic calcium can cause anorexia, depression, irritability, muscle weakness, psychosis, heart arrhythmias, fat intolerance, gastric ulcers, growth retardation, kidney disease, liver impairment.  Excess metallic iron causes anorexia, dizziness, fatigue and headaches. 

Another related benefit of using organic colloidal minerals is there potential for cleansing the body of previously stored toxins and heavy metal minerals.  Over the course of   a lifetime a person is exposed to environmental stressors such as pollution, radiation and chemical pesticides which cause a disturbing array of chemical toxins to be stored in the fatty tissues of our body.  There is evidence which suggests that organic colloidal minerals, via a process called "ionic exchange" have the ability to flush out the stored toxins so that they can be eliminated.  Organic colloidal minerals, therefore, actually have a dual benefit.  Not only are they much less likely to accumulate in the body, they may be useful in terms of chasing toxins out of the body.

*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.
