Dr. Joel Wallach
Dr. Joel Wallach has been delivering a message of
good health and long life to American for years, a message that can really
affect the lives of those who hear him speak.
Millions of people have heard his very popular audio cassette
called “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie”, and many others have been reached
with his message of good health through good nutrition on his nationally
syndicated radio show. Dr.
Wallach commits himself to over 300 speaking engagements a year, in a
further effort to get his message to all of us.
I sincerely hope that you’ll be on your way to achieving the
ultimate in good health after you listen to this tape.
Here’s Dr. Wallach.
I grew up on a beef farm in Missouri, and like
everybody else that raises livestock, we raise a lot of our own feed to
stay in business. And we
raised corn and soy beans and hay, and we grind this stuff up into a flour
and we add vitamins and minerals and trace minerals make pellets, and we
feed those calves for about 6 to 9 months, and then we ship them off to be
butchered, or maybe to other feeders, and you only save back the best ones
for yourself. And you knock
them in the head and eat them. It’s
a real simple cycle on a farm. The
thing that fascinated me as a teenager was that we went to a great deal of
trouble for those calves, and yet, as a family, we ate out of the very
same fields. We keep back 5
rows of corn for ourselves. We had a garden at the end of the field where we grew our
peas and beans and squash and tomatoes, and we wanted to live to be 100
with no aches and pains, and we didn’t give ourselves the very same
vitamins and minerals and trace minerals that we gave the calves. Now I used to ask my dad, “Hey, Pops, how come we go to all
that trouble for those calves and not for ourselves?” And he would say “Shut up, boy.
You’ve got farm fresh food, fresh air, lots of free exercise.
Don’t ask complicated questions.”
And I was glad to get rid of the farm exercise and
go to Ag school at the Univ. of Missouri, where my major was in animal
husbandry and nutrition, my minor was in field crops and soils. And I began to learn technical things about soil chemistry
and how related to tons and bushels per acre, and ag economics.
But I didn’t get the answer to my basic question until I became a
freshman veterinary student at the Univ. of Missouri, and there I learned
the reason why we put all these vitamins and minerals and trace minerals
in the animal feed, the bottom line, is because we don’t have insurance
for them. We don’t have
Blue Cross, Blue Shield, major medical, hospitalization, Medicare,
Medicaid, and if we were to use a human healthcare type of system for
animals, it would be a sticker shock for you.
Your hamburger would cost you $275 per pound.
Boneless, skinless chicken breast, $450 a pound, a dozen eggs would
be $50, just to pay for the healthcare.
So we learned that we could keep the price of animal products such
as meat and dairy and poultry and eggs down to where the average American
could afford them simply by significantly reducing or eliminating health
care costs. And we do that in
animals by preventing and curing diseases with nutrition.
Well, after graduating vet school, I went to
Africa for a couple of years and got to work with Marlin Perkins, from the
old Mutual of Omaha “Wild Kingdom” days.
And that was a kind of a kick.
Got to play Frank Buck, use a tranquillizer gun, tromp all over
Central and South Africa for a couple of years.
And then Marlin sent me a telegram and invited me back to the
States. He had gotten a 7.5 million dollar grant from the National
Institutes of Health, and this was more than 30 years ago, and this was to
study pollution and ecology and the environment, and my job as the
wildlife veterinarian on the project was to do autopsies of animals that
died of natural causes in the big zoos around the United States.
I was supposed to identify or find species of
animals that were ultra-sensitive to pollution.
And we were going to use that animal much like the old coal miners
used to use canaries. You
know that goes, they take the canary down into the mine, and if methane
gas or carbon monoxide would leak in the mine, canaries were more
sensitive than men, and would drop off the perch and die long before the
men were in danger of suffocating or blowing up.
Well, to make a long story short, after some 12 plus years of
working on this project, I had done 17,500 autopsies on over 454 species
of animals, plus 3,000 human beings for comparison.
And what I learned was, that every animal and every human being who
dies of natural causes dies of a nutritional deficiency disease.
I got kind of excited about nutrition again, and I
wrote 75 scientific papers on the subject.
I wrote chapters for 8 multi-author textbooks.
I Actually contributed a textbook myself. A thousand pages, 2000 illustrations, and through the news
releases that were in the big universities I worked with, I was on 20/20
with Hugh Downs and Geraldo before he got his nose broken the first time.
That was a kick. Then 1700 newspapers around the world through the UPI and AP
news services. And with all
this public exposure, with all this scientific exposure, I couldn’t get
people in a position of authority, either in medical research, or in
politics to get too concerned or interested in preventing or curing
disease in human beings with nutrition just like we did in animals.
Well, I got frustrated enough I went back to school in Portland,
Oregon, became a physician, and I practiced there 12 years as a general
family practitioner, and I sewed up chainsaw wounds, delivered babies,
actually used everything that I learned in veterinary nutrition on my
human patients, and it was no surprise to me that it worked just as well
in people as it did in animals.
Well, to get started, I always like to talk about
longevity, and the human being has a genetic potential to live healthily
to be 120 to 140, and I’m going to prove that to you in just a minute. Unfortunately, Americans do a lousy job when it comes to
longevity. Our average
lifespan in the United States is 75.5, about half of what we are
genetically capable of, and in 1990, when the World Health Organization
examined the top 32 industrialized nations on earth, the United States
came out 17th. There
are actually 16 other countries whose peoples live longer than we do.
We ranked 19th in healthfulness, that meant there were
18 other countries whose peoples live longer than we do before they
develop heart disease and cancer and diabetes and arthritis and
osteoporosis. We ranked 23rd
when it came to live births and first year survivability as a baby, and we
ranked dead last, 32 out of 32, when it came to preventing birth defects. Now all this means is, we have the highest priced healthcare
system in the world, but not the best.
It also means that we have the most envied healthcare system in the
world, but not the best. We
have the most technologically advanced healthcare system in the world, but
not the best.
Well, what we are going to do this evening, just
before we get into this longevity stuff, we need to eliminate a bunch of
medical dogma, these things are called medical myths.
I like to call them medical ka-kas.
This was a study that was done in 1947.
They took laboratory animals and they had one group that was a pure
vegan, nothing but vegetable material, grains, and fruits and vegetables
and nuts; the other had the same basic diet with all the supplements, but
they just added some veal powder, some ground up veal, some ground up bone
meal and so forth, and the rats that were vegans, or vegetarians, lived
555 days, and the rats that rats that ate the omnivore diet with meat as
well as the vegetables and grains lived twice as long, 1020 days.
So that’s kind of interesting, but people say “Oh that’s just
laboratory animals, and they’re not spiritually elevated” and all that
kind of stuff, so let’s keep looking here.
There was a great study that was published in the
Denver Post in May of 1996, just about a year ago, and this study was done
by the State Social Services in Colorado, and they identified all the 415
centenarians in the state of Colorado living at that time.
These are people over the age of 100, the oldest was 111, 415 of
them, and they sent a social worker out to each one of the, gave them a
hot meal to get their blood sugar up, and then sat there eyeball to
eyeball and asked them all these questions on 5 pages of questionnaire. They were looking for things they could point to and say this
is why these people live to be 100. They
found out that two thirds of these 415 centenarians were women, one third
were men, so you fellows can live to be 100 if you do everything right.
They found out that every religion, every culture was represented
in these 415 centenarians, so no group, no religion, no race, no culture
had a monopoly on living to be 100. The only one that was 100%, they were all heavy red meat
eaters. Everyone of them ate
red meat twice a day, there was not a single vegetarian in the bunch.
Now there had to be something wrong with this
theory that being a vegetarian is healthful.
At any rate, number 1, 100% were all heavy red meat eaters, number
2, 85% still worked after the age of 100, and they did primarily paperwork
for family businesses, and baby-sat and did the dishes, and gardened and
things like that. 75% took a
nip of whiskey everyday. You
don’t want to get them out of order, you want to do the red meat twice a
day, and if you get around to it, a nip of whiskey might be okay.
There’s no proof that being a vegetarian has any health or
longevity benefits. It’s a
theory and it’s not panning out.
Then, there’s a guy up at the University of
California, San Francisco. This
guy wrote several books on longevity, 125 year diet, you can live to be
125 years of age, and he always says that if you eat less you’re going
to live longer. And this came
from these old studies of 1947, where they restricted calories, and they
took rats and let them eat free choice and they found out how much a rat
would eat when you let them eat whatever they wanted.
So then they restricted those calories by 30% and they had another
group that restricted the calories by 60% and they came out and said that
those rats that had 30% less calories than the original group lived 50%
longer, and the ones that had a 60% restriction of calories lived to be
twice as old as the ones who got free choice.
And everybody got excited about restricting calories.
But what the original article said back in 1947 was that not only
do you restrict calories, but you have to keep vitamins and minerals and
trace minerals at the same level, even though you are cutting the
calories, you keep the vitamins and minerals and trace minerals at the
Now what that means is, that even though you had
restricted calories, the calories that were there were more nutrient
dense. There’s more
minerals, more vitamins, more trace minerals per calorie in the restricted
diet, because there was the same amount in the restricted calorie diet of
vitamins and minerals and trace minerals as there was in the free choice
Now when a human being cuts his calories by 60%
and they don’t supplement, whatever nutrition might be, by chance, in
that food, they are actually restricting their trace minerals and vitamins
and minerals. Well, there was
an honest article, in February of this year, eating less may lead to
longer life. Again that theme
song they keep singing about, they did this study on Reese’s monkeys,
they moved up from rats, and then they said, both groups received the same
vitamins and minerals. And it
was just sort of a little afterthought in this article.
Then there’s the subject of meditation and Yoga,
this, of course, was brought to the United States in the 60’s and 70’s
by the hippies and flower children, and it looks like there might be some
grownup hippies in this room tonight.
You know, about the right age group.
This kind of died out for awhile, during the 70’s and 80’s, and
during the 90’s this concept of meditation and Yoga has been reawakened
by a best-selling author by the name of Depak Chopra who lives not too far
away from here. He has his clinic and so forth.
But there is no proof in the pudding that meditation and Yoga has
any longevity benefit. It
certainly can calm you down during tax week and calm you down during
finals week and that sort of stuff, but not longevity.
And here’s one, a fellow who tried to cover all bases, a guy by the name of Tom Dowling, age 47, exercise, he was a marathon runner, he was a vegan, and he meditated. And he started getting irregular heartbeats after being a marathon runner of some note, everybody knew him and he was kind of the athletic hero from the Midwest, actually from Kansas City, Missouri. And he started getting irregular heartbeats so he went into the doctors office for a stress test, and he died an hour after the stress test, you know that treadmill thing. They should have just given him some Selenium.
Then there’s the subject of organically grown
food. Everybody knows that
organically grown food, or grains, vegetables, fruits and nuts that are
grown on soils that have not had any sprays on them for two or three
years, depending on the state that is certifying it, and think everybody
will agree that the more organically grown food that you put in your diet
the less likely you are to get cancer, because you are reducing the amount
of chemicals in your life. But
a lot of people make the unreasonable extension that if you eat
organically grown food you don’t have to take any vitamins and minerals
and trace minerals, cause you get everything you need from your four food
groups if they’re organically grown.
I had a good friend by the name of Christopher
Byrd, for many many years, over 20 years, and Chris is a best-selling
author of books on organically grown food.
An expert on the subject, and I was always trying to give him
vitamins and minerals and he refused to take them.
He would tell me, “Doc, I bring my own cooler, I don’t eat any
hotel food, I bring my own organically grown food and so I don’t need to
take vitamins and minerals.” Well
I was changing planes, a year ago, May of 1996, in Atlanta, and I had an
hour to kill between planes. I
picked up the local newspaper and guess whose obituary I found in the
newspaper, Chris Byrd. Of course, again, he was a best-selling author of books,
“The Secret Life of Plants”, “The Secrets of the Soil”, and he
died at age 68 from a ruptured aneurysm, a type of stroke, 7.5 years
before the average American dies. And
he led a pristine life, lived up in the mountains, had an organically
grown garden, collected herbs like Yul Gibbons, and ate wild hickory nuts
and all this kind of thing, and because of his belief, he died of a copper
deficiency. And I’ll show
you in a minute that a copper deficiency causes ruptured aneurysms,
and it’s just a tragic thing that people have so much to give and die at
less than half their genetic potential for longevity.
there’s the subject of herbs. Lot
of people say to me, “Doc, I don’t need to take vitamins and minerals
and trace minerals, because I use herbs.”
Now, herbs are not nutrition.
You have to understand that herbs are not nutrition.
They are plant medicines. They’re
safer, they’re more economical, and in most cases they are more
effective than prescription medications that doctors will give you, but
they are plant medicines. If
you have diarrhea, they will tighten you up.
If you have constipation, they will loosen you up. If you have hypertension or high blood pressure, they can
bring it down. If you have a
fever, they can bring it down. But
don’t expect to get enough Calcium or Selenium, or Boron or Copper, or
Vitamin A from herbs. And
another good friend by the name of Tommy Bass, was an expert on herbs and
he lived like Yul Gibbons up in the mountains out in the east, wrote many
many best-selling books on herbs, and he died at age 88 and a lot of
people will say, “Hey, that’s pretty good.
He lived 12 years longer than the average American.”
But you are going to see in a minute that that’s only half of
your genetic capability, your genetic capacity for longevity.
And if Tommy Bass had taken vitamins and minerals as well as the
herbs, he would probably still be alive today.
There’s no proof in the pudding that you can get enough nutrition
One of my favorites is this thing on salt.
This is probably one of the bigger medical ka-kas, this salt thing.
Doctors tell you “Don’t use salt!”
No sodium, because it’s going to give you hypertension, high
blood pressure, it will give you heart disease, and they have made
Americans paranoid about salt. Now,
I’m a veterinarian as well as a physician.
I refuse to believe that my human patients are dumber than a cow.
What’s the first thing a farmer or a rancher puts out for his
livestock? A big salt block,
right? Nobody gives any
restriction on a cow, she goes out and has all the salt that she wants.
Never gets high blood pressure, and so I always used to tell my
patients “Look, let’s use a little common sense here.
Why don’t you just go ahead and take a salt shaker, just salt
your food to taste, go mad with the salt.
Your body will tell you when to back off.
And 98% of my patients would do it just because I asked them to do
it. And I have been
vindicated in this belief.
This was actually a study that was published in
the NY Times, May 22, 1996, and this study was abstracted from JAMA, the
Journal of the American Medical Association, the most prestigious medical
journal in the world, according to themselves.
Now in this particular journal, a Dr. Alexander Gordon Logan, who
is an epidemiologist and cardiologist on the teaching staff of the medical
school at the Univ. of Toronto up in Canada, and he took 56 existing
studies on hypertension or high blood pressure and restriction of salt,
combined data from these 56 studies, which included 3505 people.
He threw away all the conclusions and re-evaluated the larger group
and what he found out was this. If
you have normal blood pressure, and you restrict salt, it will not prevent
you from getting heart disease or high blood pressure.
If you have hypertension or high blood pressure and you restrict
salt, 97% of those with high blood pressure or hypertension who restrict
salt will not get any measurable benefit.
Zero. 2-5% get
measurable benefit, but it’s not significant.
They are only able to reduce their blood pressure by 3.7mm mercury,
so here is what Dr. Alexander Gordon Logan said in JAMA, May 22, 1996.
He said, “You might as well go ahead and salt your food to
taste”. It’s a
meaningless exercise. Don’t
get paranoid about salt. It
has nothing to do with blood pressure problems.
There has never been one single iota of proof that restricting salt
has any benefit. That’s
just one of those medical myths, he called it, but I’m going to call it
a medical ka-ka.
Then there’s the subject of nutrition.
You know, the doctors always tell you “just eat your four food
groups. You don’t need
vitamins or minerals or trace minerals.
You can get everything you need.”
And again, from these medical journals and hospital journals, I got
some great ads. These are
from like the 1950’s, 1962. I
want you to read this. This
is from a hospital journal. This
is the Kellogg’s Roundtable topics for hospital staff.
You see there’s a doctor and two nurses, or maybe nurse and
dietician. The purchasing
agent “Do Kellogg’s
cereal really save me money?” The
floor nurse, “How can I save time in the morning?”
Dietician “How can I get patients to eat breakfast, or enjoy
breakfast?” Does it
say anything in there about giving patients good nutrition?
No! They are solving
all these administrative problems with Kellogg’s cereal, but nothing
Then here’s the crème de la crème of the
advertisements. Notice this
is a hospital journal. Journal
of the American Hospital Association.
This is actually 1962. “Coca
Cola, too has it’s place in a well-balanced diet.
As a pure and wholesome drink it provides quick energy, brings you
back refreshed after work or play. It
contributes to good health by providing a pleasurable moment.”
That’s the level of doctors’ nutritional training.
14 years in medical school and this is where they get their
nutritional information, from these ads in the hospital journal.
Now this is probably the biggest fraud ever
perpetuated against the American People.
This cholesterol thing. Last
year Americans were so paranoid about cholesterol they spent 117 billion
dollars for cholesterol testing alone, and it did not add 10 seconds to
youngevity. Now I’ve been telling my human patients for over 20 years
to eat two eggs every morning, soft scrambled and buttered, poached,
soft-boiled, and eat 72oz. of red meat every month as a source of
cholesterol that’s good for you. And,
of course, 98% would just do it. They
would say “Boy, we love Doc Wallach.
He’ll let you eat two eggs for breakfast every morning, 72oz. red
meat every month.” Of course it sounds like a lot, but it’s only a
quarter-pounder a day.
But at any rate, there’s always this 2% who are
bean counters. They say
“Doc, we love you and respect you, but we read in Cosmopolitan Magazine,
or our cardiologist told us that you might as well shoot people in the
head as have two eggs every morning for breakfast because of all the
cholesterol and heart disease.”
Well, I’ve been vindicated in this one.
This is a study that was published Nov. 15, 1995.
It was the annual meeting of none other than the American Heart
Assoc. in Anaheim, CA., not the National Enquirer, but the American Heart
Association. They finally did
the study they should have done 50 years ago.
We did it in animals, so I never believed that cholesterol was the
boogey-man that they would have you believe.
They took 141 healthy volunteers with an average blood cholesterol
of 227. Now I get a lot of
people come to me and say “Doc, you’ve got to help me find something
natural to get my cholesterol down, it’s terribly high and cardiologists
want to give you this cholesterol-lowering drugs that will kill you.
Kill your liver and make you blind.”
And I say “Gosh, well how high is your cholesterol?”
And they say “it’s 240”.
Well, the normal blood cholesterol range is between 220 and 270.
So if you have a blood cholesterol of 240 and you get a
cardiologist or an internist who is trying to get your blood cholesterol
down below 200, you want to find a new doctor.
Don’t buy into that.
At any rate, for six months they had these 141
normal healthy people with an average blood cholesterol of 227, they had
them eat 2 eggs every morning for breakfast.
At the end of 6 months they redid their cholesterol, and of course,
their cholesterol did go up. But
it went up from 227 to 233. It
went up a whopping 6 points! Here’s
what the American Heart Association said after the six months’ study, at
their annual meeting, Anaheim, CA., Nov. 15, 1995:
“We always assume that eggs were bad for you because eggs contain
cholesterol. But it now
appears after this simple study that two eggs won’t hurt.”
The American Heart Association.
So, as I tell you to eat two eggs to deal with a
particular disease later on, it’s been approved by the American Heart
Association, so don’t be shocked.
Cholesterol should really be an essential
nutrient, like Calcium, and Vitamin A and Vitamin C, Zinc, and so forth.
You would only make 10% of your daily need.
The other 90% you must get in your diet, and people get real good
about restricting red meat, and chicken skin and dairy products, and so it
is real easy to get cholesterol out of your life.
And the physicians, the medical profession has created a whole
family of diseases that are related to fat deficiency, essential fatty
acid deficiencies, cholesterol deficiency, and one of my favorites I’ll
share with you. This
particular disease did not exist 40 years ago.
It was not in any medical textbook, it was not in any medical
dictionary, it was not taught in any medical course.
It only became a disease entity in the literature in 1979.
Today it’s the number 4 killer of adults over the age of 65,
behind cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes.
It’s Alzheimer’s Disease.
It’s a physician-caused disease, and I’m going to prove that to
you in a minute.
Now people say to me, “Look, Doc, every member
of my family has got Alzheimer’s Disease, and doctors tell me that it is
genetic.” Well, it’s not
genetic, and I’m going to prove that to you in a second, but if you have
every family member who has got Alzheimer’s Disease, that means you have
the same family physician. You
want to get a new doctor.
Your brain is 75% pure cholesterol.
And if you are really good at giving up cholesterol, and you are
painstakingly careful about eliminating cholesterol in your diet, what’s
going to happen in about 10 to 12 years?
You only make 10% Well, you start losing that myelin, that insulating stuff out
of your brain, again it makes up 75% of your brain weight, and the old
squashola goes and you get Alzheimer’s Disease.
You can prevent Alzheimer’s Disease, you can
reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s Disease to almost zero, if you eat two
eggs every morning, soft scrambled, poached or soft boiled every morning,
not fried. And certainly no
fried foods. And you want to
take in all 90 essential nutrients, you want to make sure you are taking
in 1200 to 2000 units of Vitamin E everyday if you have Alzheimer’s in
your family. And doctors just
go berserk when you I say things like that.
I used to say that we could prevent Alzheimer’s Disease in pigs
and chickens, and they say “you show us where pigs and chickens get
Alzheimer’s Disease”. Well I can’t, because we prevent it!
But in the experiment, when we did experimentally
produce Alzheimer’s Disease in pigs and chickens, it was called
encephala malasia(?). And so
you have to know how to read the veterinary literature as well as the
human literature. Well,
I’ve been vindicated in that one. This
was in our own Univ. of California, San Diego, School of Medicine, a very
reputable medical school. Also
co-researched by the Salk Institute, also a very famous research
institute. “Vitamin E can
ease memory loss in Alzheimer’s patients.”
This was four and a half years ago,
July, 1992. I’ve
been saying that over and over and doctors go berserk, wanting to know,
“I want you to prove what you’re saying!” “Vitamin E can ease memory loss in Alzheimer’s
patients.” I just send them
a photocopy of this and they just say, “Oh, well, we have to close that
investigation” and I’m just acting like a reporter here.
They think I’m just making this stuff up.
Well, for those who say “that was just one study, and there’s
no way to prove that again”, this was just in the newspaper a couple of
days ago now, “Vitamin E can slow Alzheimer’s Disease”, again the
Univ. of CA., San Diego. This
is published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Well, my favorite disease is Arthritis.
The reason why I love Arthritis is that it’s easy to fix.
And when you can fix something as horrible and debilitating and
painful and expensive and as miserable as Arthritis, you get kind of
excited about this concept of preventing and curing disease with
nutrition. And so I tell
people about this arthritis thing all the time.
So let’s have a quick look at arthritis.
Number one, 75-80% of all Americans over the age
of 50 get arthritis to one degree or one type or another, and according to
the CDC, the Center for Disease Control, 35 to 50 million baby-boomers are
going to get arthritis in the next 7 to 10 years and there’s not a
single medical treatment designed to treat or fix it.
Aspirin certainly doesn’t fix arthritis, it causes gastric
bleeding and death. Tylenol
doesn’t fix arthritis, there’s 50,000 cases of kidney failure each
year, 5000 so severe you need a kidney transplant.
Then there’s Ibuprofen, Advil, and Aleve, these things don’t
fix arthritis, and they cause liver disease in 2-5% of users including
liver sclerosis, even if you don’t drink.
And then there’s metholtrexate(?) and gold shots(?).
These things don’t fix arthritis, they subdue your bone marrow so
that you can’t make normal platelets and white blood cells.
Then you have the granddaddy of all medical treatments for
arthritis, Prednizone and Cortisone. They don’t fix arthritis.
They subdue your immune system which leaves you open to diseases
far, far more horrible than arthritis, and Prednizone and Cortisone
accelerates the loss of minerals from your bone.
Something you don’t want when you have osteoporosis and
When these prescription medications and
over-the-counter medications don’t work anymore to relieve pain and
inflammation, the only thing left for you medically is joint-replacement
surgery. And I never liked to send my patients in for
joint-replacement surgery, cause they never work out well.
In fact, many times you are worse off after the surgery than you
were before the surgery.
The advantage my patients have always had is that
I’m a veterinarian as well as a physician.
So I always used to tell my patients “Look, we have all these
nutritional formulas designed to prevent and cure disease in animals,
including arthritis, and so I tried adapting nutritional arthritis
formulas designed to prevent and cure arthritis in pigeons and turkeys,
dogs and cats, sheep, pigs, horses, cows, lions, tigers and bears to human
use. It was no surprise to
me, it works just as well in humans as it does in animals, because it was
designed to prevent and cure arthritis in pigs. And
of course it has some really nifty stuff in it, which I have been telling
people to use for 20 years, and I have literally seen tens of thousands of
people who have had a regrowth of cartilage, ligaments, tendons,
connective tissue, bone foundation, bone matrix.
Doesn’t matter if they are 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, I’ve
seen people 97 years old regrow cartilage and bone, even if they had bone
to bone arthritis. If
there’s blood supply to that joint and that bone, they will regrow bone
Well, Harvard Medical School goes berserk when you
say stuff like that. “Wallach,
you can’t say those things! And
the only thing left when they get bone to bone arthritis is
joint-replacement surgery.” And
I would agree with him if the only raw materials you are using is Tylenol
and aspirin and Prednizone and Cortisone.
We have learned over 50 years that you can’t regrow cartilage and
bones using those things.
Now one of the basic
things, of course, that the Harvard Medical School jumped on and
said “this is so ridiculous that this couldn’t work!” And so they took 29 arthritis patients who had not responded
in any way to heroic medical treatment for arthritis over 15 to 20 years.
They took them off their medication, it wasn’t working anyway,
lined them up for joint-replacement surgery, and for 90 days before their
surgery they gave them heaping tablespoon of ground up chicken cartilage
in their orange juice every morning for 90 days.
They were sort of chuckling in their beer saying “nothing is
going to happen”. Well,
here’s what happened. In 10
days these people had complete relief of pain inflammation that they
hadn’t had in 15 to 20 years. In
30 days they could open up a new pickle jar that had never been opened
without pain to the fingers, wrists, elbows and shoulders.
In 90 days 28 of the 29 were clinically cured. Now this is from the Harvard Medical School and the Boston
VA. That meant that they had
complete return, 100% return, of the range of motion, all of the pain and
inflammation was gone, in their fingers and toes and hips and knees and
neck, and certainly many of them still had knots on their fingers, cause
it was only 90 days, and you would think they would call me up, these
professors from Harvard Medical School and from the Boston VA, and say
“Look, Wallach, we have to apologize to you.
We’ve been bad-mouthing you for 20 years and why don’t you come
up to Boston, let’s talk about the whole thing?”
Here’s what they said, “After 3 months it was clear that the
drug was beneficial.”
Chicken cartilage had become a drug in 90 days!
Now why would that happen? Well,
because you can’t patten chicken cartilage, and they convinced the US
Patten Office that they were using a drug to do this study, and they
actually got a use-patten on chicken cartilage.
And you, too, for $3500 a month, can get Harvard Medical School’s
chicken cartilage in a capsule for arthritis.
(You can get it for 30 cents a day… ha, ha).
That’s kind of interesting.
And of course, cartilage or gelatine, has chondroitin sulfate in it,
glucosamine sulfate, collagen, these are all the basic raw materials to
rebuild cartilage and bone. Now
again I have been telling my human patients this for 20 years.
They’ve been using gelatine and cartilage for race horses for 100
years for their cartilage and ligaments and joints.
And in 1995, a Luke Bucci, an exercise physiologist came out with a
great book called “Pain Free”, and he talks about the advantages of
gelatine and cartilage and glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate and
collagen for regrowing cartilage, ligaments, tendons, connective
tissue, bone foundation, bone matrix, he does this with nutrition.
He does this with glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate
and collagen and cartilage and gelatine.
Just a couple of months ago, a medical doctor, Dr. Jason
Theodisakus, MD, wrote the “Arthritis Cure”, subtitle “the medical
miracle that can halt, reverse and may even can cure osteoarthritis.”
Now certainly the scariest disease in the United
States is cancer. Everybody
is very horrified when you talk about cancer.
People get nervous. And
in my tape “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie” I talked about the anti-cancer
diet that was found. Everybody goes berserk when I say things like that, “No,
there’s no such thing as an anti-cancer diet”, and there you see it.
This is a newspaper article, it was actually a news release by the
National Cancer Institute. They did a five year study in Henan Province in China, and
they chose to go to Henan Province in China because it had the highest
rate of cancer in the whole world. They
took 29,000 normal healthy people, between the ages of 40 and 69, divided
them up into small groups, gave each group a different vitamin, different
mineral, combinations of vitamins and minerals, to see if any nutrient or
combination of nutrients would reduce this horrible rate of cancer in
Henon Province. What they
found out was, if you take a single vitamin, don’t expect too much
positive to happen. We’re
not too surprised at that. Lynus
Pauling, one of our favorite sons here in California, two Nobel Prizes,
took 10,000mg of Vitamin C everyday for 35 years, and still died of
prostate cancer at age 93, 7 years short of the magic number of 100.
Well they did find one group that showed significant benefit.
This group, had 20 cents a day worth of 3 nutrients, pitifully low
dose, double the American RDA, - Beta Carotene, Vitamin E, and the
trace mineral Selenium. The
group showed a reduction in deaths from all causes of 9%.
Suicide, car accidents, things like pneumonia, heart disease,
ruptured aneurysms, diabetes and cancer.
It reduced all cancer deaths in this group by 13%, and the type of
cancer most common in Henon Province, stomach cancer, and lower esophageal
cancer they reduced by 21%. Saved
almost 1 out of 4 that were projected to die from esophageal and stomach
cancer. Just simply from
these 3 nutrients, Beta Carotene, Vitamin E, and Selenium.
There was a redo on this by the University of Arizona, and this was
published in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association, Dec.
25, 1996, on Christmas Day, and this should have been the greatest healing
and medical story in history. It
did not even make the top 10 Associated Press news stories for 1996.
That’s how biased the medical profession is against nutrition.
This should have been the greatest health story in recorded
The University of Arizona Medical School took 1300
people, put them on 250-500mcg Selenium, and for 10 years they
looked at them for skin cancer. And
it didn’t help skin cancer, we know that, because Selenium doesn’t
work for skin cancer. Zinc,
and Beta Carotene and Vitamin E works for skin cancer.
What they found out serendipitously, they weren’t expecting this,
it just sort of popped out of the study, they were able to reduce
esophageal cancer by 71%, they were able to reduce prostate cancer by 69%
fellows, better than two thirds, they were able to reduce colon and rectal
cancer by 64%, almost two thirds, they were able to reduce lung cancer,
whether you smoked or not, by 48%, and ladies, in a parallel study from
the University of California by the great Dr. Gerhardt Schrauser, he said
you can reduce your risk of breast cancer, depending on the type of breast
cancer, by 50-85%, by taking 250 to 500 mcg of Selenium everyday.
The last medical ka-ka we want to look at, before
we get into the longevity stuff, is exercise.
How many of you have ever heard that exercise is good for you?
You’re asleep at the wheel if you haven’t heard that one.
Well, if that were true, people who exercise should live longer
than people who are couch potatoes, right?
The average couch potatoe in America lives to be 75.5, the average
athlete, depending on the sport and the level of competence, lives to be
62 to 68. So there is
something wrong with this theory that exercise alone is good for you.
I want you to think about Jim Fixx, who died in
1984 at age 52. Jim Fixx was
running 10 miles a day from the early 60’s believing that if you ran 10
miles a day seven days a week you could live to be over 100.
And he refused to take vitamins and minerals because he believed he
would muddy the water and he wanted to prove that it was the exercise that
helped you live to be over 100. And
so he refused to take any vitamins and minerals and trace minerals, and
when he was 52 years old he had 5 cardiomyopathy heart attacks.
Five Selenium deficiency heart attacks in his 52nd year.
The 5th one killed him.
When they did the autopsy on Jim Fix, they said “Gosh, his
arteries are as clean as a newborn baby’s”, but he had a huge
technical problem, his heart was dead. Doesn’t matter how clean your arteries are if your heart is
dead it doesn’t matter, does it?
And you look at people like Jesse Owens.
Won 4 gold medals in track and field in the 1936 in Berlin, died at
age 66. The Flying Finns were
the Olympic team for track and field for Finland during the 20’s and
30’s. They dominated 3
Olympics in a row. Won
most of the gold, most of the silver almost all the bronze medals during
those three Olympics and two in the late 20’s and the first Olympics in
the 30’s. They dominated
everybody. None of them lived
to be 70 years of age.
Well here’s the last one on exercise before we
get into the longevity. Dr.
Michael P. Artise, 38 years old, was also a runner, and this guy ran all
through Junior High and High School, and college and medical school, and
when he graduated he still loved exercise and believed it was good for
you. And he tried to carry
this love of exercise to his patients so he gave them a 10% discount on
his medical services if they would run with him 2 weeks out of every
month. Now this particular
fateful day, Dr. Michael P. Artise, 38 years old, was jogging with a big
group, gallery of his patients, kind of like Forest Gump, running down
this road, and he collapsed and died in front of his horrified patients.
But it was billing week, so nobody stopped to give him CPR because
they didn’t want to lose that 10% discount on his services.
Now, if you do everything right, how old can you
live to be? Is it worth all
the effort? I believe it is. Here’s one, Christian Mortenson from San Rafael,
California, in August of 1995, turned 113, August of 1996 turned 114 and
he’s still going strong. Certainly
can live to be 115. He smokes
a couple of cigars a day, like George Burns, who also lived to be over
100. Certainly the only
exercise George Burns ever got was to put the cigar in his mouth.
And then you have, this guy plays golf twice a week. This
gal here, Dora Ramathebe, from South Africa, in July of 1995 turned 114,
and when she was asked by the media, “Dora, what do you attribute your
health and longevity to?”, she did not say that we owe it all to our
annual physical or our HMO, she said “I ate locusts everyday.”
You know, little grasshoppers.
She’s not a vegetarian, she eats little animals.
Pumpkin seeds, tortoise meat, wild herbs, dried fruit, and starch
each day with a cup of coffee.
Now here is Margaret Skeets, from Radford, VA, in
1994 the oldest documented living American when she died at age 115.
Fell over and fractured her hip.
Two weeks later she was dead from complications of Osteoporosis,
simple Calcium deficiency. And
we’ll talk more about that in a minute.
Unfortunately this is not unusual.
75% of Americans over the age of 65 who fracture a hip or major leg
bone, don’t live 90 days, they die of pneumonia, pulmonary embolism,
stroke and other complications of that fracture.
This gal is one of my favorites, Jean Calmen from
France. She rode her bike as
a volunteer librarian in Paris for 105 years.
February 21, 1995, she turned 120 and she was documented in the
Guinness Book of Records as the oldest living woman in the world.
There were others who claimed to be older than she but they
didn’t have the documentation to prove it.
February 21, 1996, she turned 121, February 21, 1997, she turned
122, still going strong and has no intention of dying yet.
Susie Brunson, according to family, in December of
1994 was the oldest American when she died at the age of 123. And they based their claim on her birthdate, December 25,
1870, which is recorded in the family bible.
And this guy here, Francisco Chapparino, October
1995, was from a little town outside of Bogota, Columbia, turned 125.
When he was asked by the media, “Hey Francisco, what do you
attribute your health and longevity to?”
He said, “Well, I drink a gallon of goat’s milk everyday.”
Also, it’s kind of fascinating in his birthday announcement, this
is not an obituary, this is a birthday announcement, said that over 40
years ago physicians told him he only had a couple of months to live, so
he had his sons build him a coffin, and he’s been waking up every
morning for 40 years, sitting by that coffin, waiting to die.
When night time comes he goes to bed, wakes up, sits by the coffin
and waits to die. Now he’s still going strong and all the doctors who told
him that more than 40 years ago are long since dead.
Now this fellow, Hamudi el Abdulla, from Syria,
July 1993, about 3 and a half years ago, died age 133 and he was still
fathering children after the age of 100.
He remarried for the 4th time when he was age 80,
fathered 4 boys, 5 girls, 9 children after the age of eighty with the same
wife, and if you add up the pregnancies, the breast feeding, the time in
between pregnancies, he was still fathering children after the age of 100.
Now this very next one is my very favorite.
This gal, Mazumi Doosti, from Iran, according to the Rocky Mountain
News Wire Services out of Denver, and the Iranian News Agency, in January,
1995, she died at age 161. Now
you had to give a certain amount of credibility to this report that she
died at age 161, because she is survived by 6 living children ranging in
age from 120 to 128. They hadn’t even left home to go to college yet.
Now her oldest son, Golan, said his mother had never visited a
doctor nor taken any chemical medications during her life, but did take a
few herbs. So if you kind of
think about it, every one of these people who lived to be over 100, 120,
130, 160, these people are not from the United States, or Canada, or
Germany, or England. Kind of
interesting, isn’t it? Most
of them are from 3rd world countries.
They are furtherest away from medical help, and they live to be,
oh, so we’re beginning to collect information here.
The last one we want to look at, in the National
Geographic Society, a very respected group of people, scientists, support
group for scientists, comes out with a monthly magazine, the National
Geographic Magazine, of course. And
they, in January of 1973, 24 years ago, came out with a nifty special
issue on longevity. They
looked at about 10 cultures whose people routinely lived to be about
120-140. And they documented
the oldest living human being that they could find based on their
criteria. This fellow, by the name of Sharalla Mesmelov, from Azur
Bhaijan(?), a little country just south of Russian Georgia in western
Russia today, they documented him as being 167 years old. Remember, this is the National Geographic Society, not the
National Enquirer. 167 years
of age, and they had a half page picture of him actually harvesting tea
leaves on a tea plantation. Still
working 8 hours a day, six days a week at age 167.
Five months later, May of 1973, he turns 168, goes out and hoes the
garden for reporters to show how vigorous he is at age 168.
All this is just to prove to you that human beings
do have a genetic capacity to live to be 120-140, people do it all the
Americans don’t do a very good job.
Our average life-span is 75.5, half of what we’re genetically
capable of, so we need to look at why.
What’s going on here, what can we do to fix this?
Well, I’ve been doing bio-medical research and clinical research
in animals and human beings for almost 39 years, and I can tell you, no
matter how you look at health and longevity, whether it be in animals or
human beings, there’s only really two concepts you have to deal with.
Number one, I refer to as ‘avoid stepping on the land mines’.
This is where you don’t want to throw away your healthy physical
body wastefully. You don’t
want to smoke. Don’t abuse
alcohol. Don’t do drugs.
Don’t jog down a highway at 2am wearing a black Ninja suit,
you’re going to get hit by a truck.
Lastly, on concept number one, you want to avoid
going to a doctor, because given half a chance, they will kill you.
One of my most inflammatory statements in the “Dead Doctors
Don’t Lie” tape, was that doctors kill 300,000 Americans every year,
and of course that came from a news release, Ralph Nader and Sydney Wolf,
in January, 1993.
Now the last moral of this story, of concept
number one, of course, is whatever you do, whenever a doctors says
“Here’s our options”, never say “Doc, whatever you say, you’re
the doctor”. What you want to do, when a doctor says “Here’s our
options”, is to say “Look, I want copies of all these records and
tests. I want copies of the
xrays.” And go visit 3
other doctors and 3 other hospitals, talk to 12 of their living patients
that have gone through this procedure.
Talk to them and see if you really want to do this.
I mean, you do this for your driveway, and your roof, and your
fence, and your yard, and all that kind of stuff, why not for your own
physical body? That’s
concept number one.
Now that you’ve avoided all the land mines, you
are in a good position to do all the positive things that you need to do
to go on to live to be over 100. Basically,
what you want to do is take all 90 essential nutrients, 60 minerals, 16
vitamins, 12 essential amino acids, and 3 essential fatty acids.
They are called essential nutrients for 2 reasons.
Number one, your body cannot manufacture them, you must consume
these everyday either as food or as supplements.
Number two, if any one of these essential nutrients is missing
for a couple of months or a couple of years, you get, on the average, 10
deficiency diseases. 10
deficiency diseases times 90 essential nutrients, that’s 900 diseases
you can potentially prevent just simply by supplementing properly.
You have everything to gain and nothing to lose by supplementing
Well, the medical profession, of course, has this
malignant dumb belief that you can get everything you need from your four
food groups. My favorite
article of all times in the press, was April 6, 1992, Time Magazine, cover
article, “The real power of vitamins.
New research shows it might help cancer, fight heart disease, and
the ravages of aging.” Six
positive pages. If you
haven’t read it, I would encourage you to go to a public library, school
library, and dig it out and read it.
There’s only one negative statement in it, and as you can guess,
it was offered by a medical doctor who was actually contacted by the
writer of the article, said “What do you think of vitamins, minerals and
trace minerals as supplements for human nutrition?”
Here’s what he said, “Popping vitamins doesn’t do you any
good,” sniffs Dr. Victor Herbert, a professor of Medicine at New York
City’s Mount Sanai Medical School.
“We get all the vitamins we need in our diets, and taking
supplements just gives you expensive urine.”
Now the Missouri translation of that is that you
are just peeing away your money. Might
as well wad up your dollars, throw them in the toilet, and flush them
away. “You can get
everything you need from your four food groups” was what he was
trying to say. Well, I would
rather pee out 50 cents or a dollar a day worth of excess vitamins or
minerals. That’s cheap insurance. Think about it. How
much money do you spend for coffee, or soft drinks, or newspapers, or that
kind of stuff everyday, 50 cents or a dollar a day to maintain and repair
your body. And it is kind of
fascinating that most people don’t do it.
Just remember, when you pay that doctor out of your own pocket, or
indirectly through insurance, or indirectly through your taxes and
Medicare or Medicaid, not a single penny of that goes to better
understand, manage, feed, prevent or cure catastrophic diseases in kids,
breast cancer in women, prostate cancer in men.
It pays the doctors mortgage, the doctors Mercedes payment, the
tuition for his kids to go to medical school, or worse yet, Yale Law
School. All we need is a
bunch more Yale lawyers walking around.
Now a lot of people ask me, “Why did you call
your original tape, ‘Dead Doctors Don’t Lie’?”
Why do you call your lecture series “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie?”
Well that’s because I have believed for a long time, because I
had done medical research for over 20 years in large medical research
institutes, medical schools, the various laboratories, and always had a
belief in the medical system, but I was very disappointed when I learned
that doctors don’t know the most about health and longevity.
Doctors don’t know most about disease.
They do know about procedures.
You know, how to fix your bones when you break them, and that kind
of thing. How to do a cat
scan. And so I began to look
in the medical journals, in the medical school library here in San Diego,
and sure enough, the first article ever published on health and longevity
of American doctors is published in JAMA in 1895.
They said, at that time, doctors lived to be 54.6.
I redid the study 97 years later, using the same obituary
techniques as they did in JAMA, this was Jan. 20, 1993, that particular
issue of JAMA, and it turned out that doctors lived to 57.6.
I rounded it up to 58 for the benefit of the doubt, and doctors
just went berserk when I said that. This
was the most outrageous thing they had ever heard.
My principle is, my premise is, that doctors
don’t live as long as the average couch potatoes in America.
And I purposely put that figure out there, 58, to try and challenge
people. Well, doctors
immediately looked at all the insurance actuarial charts, they got 250,000
dead doctors, they said “Your group is too small”, so they got 250,000
dead doctors, and they said, “Doctors don’t live to be 58, they die at
62.” They still don’t live to be 75.5 like the average couch
potatoes. We actually reran
this again, using the entire obituary history for 1996, and for the entire
1996, all doctors dying in 1996, with all the medical treatments and drugs
and procedures and transplants, and doctors in that study lived to be 70.
Still 5.5 years short of the average couch potatoes in America.
So they still have never proved that doctors live as long as
everybody else, and that is why “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie”.
Doctors kill each other, in surgery just like they do everybody
Here’s one of my favorites, Dr. Ian Monroe, 73
years old, was the editor of LAMPTA, the top medical journal, the top
international medical journal. It
is very famous, every newspaper in America quotes articles out of LAMPTA.
USA Today, New York Times, San Diego Union Tribune, the cause of
death was complications of surgery, which is just a politically correct
way of saying the surgeon killed him.
The editor of LAMPTA. And
then of course, when you eliminate fast cars, and suicides, and overdoses
of drugs, and airplane accidents and so forth, doctors die of nutritional
deficiency diseases, just like everybody else.
I brought you just two or so of my favorites.
Dr. Stewart Cartwright, aged 38, was a local
physician here in San Diego, died at age 38 with a ruptured coronary
aneurysm. This guy was a
good-looking kid. Could have
been a movie actor, I’m sure he married the prom queen.
Southern California, probably had a Mercedes convertible, white
leather interior, and all the bells and whistles.
Probably never repaid his student loan, all the things that medical
students are famous for, and drops dead of a ruptured coronary aneurysm in
his heart. Something a turkey
wouldn’t die from.
We learned in 1957 from a turkey study, where they
took 250,000 turkeys, and they put them on a complete turkey pellet trying
to get them finished for market within a few days or week or so of each
other. And in the first 13
weeks, fully half of them, 125000 of them died.
Farmers were out there every morning, they picked them up every
morning by the bushel basket full and took them to the State Diagnostic
Lab to see what they died from, and when they opened them up, every one of
them had died of a ruptured aortic aneurysm.
And one of the clever pathologists said “That’s got to be due
to a copper deficiency, cause copper is required to manufacture the
elastic fibers of arteries and skin and other tissues.
And the mechanism of an aneurysm is identical to the mechanism of a
balloon or weakened wall of a tire. You
know when you hit a chuckhole with your tire and you break the cords, the
internal pressure blows a balloon, you overload that tire with weight, or
heat it up on a highway, it blows out.
Same way with an aneurysm. When
you have a copper deficiency, you get a breakdown in the elastic fibers in
that artery, the internal pressure, even normal blood pressure, will blow
a balloon in that artery, and a balloon in that artery is called an
aneurysm. And of course, if
it is in a strategic place, like the brain, carotid artery, the coronary
artery, the large arteries, aorta, pulmonary arteries, renal arteries,
they blow out you die suddenly just like you been shot.
Well, they got excited about this, they doubled the amount of
copper in these pellets, and next year they tried to raise 500,000 turkeys
and they did not lose a single one from a ruptured aneurysm.
They went from a 50% loss to a 0% loss just by adding a little
copper to those pellets. So
they said well maybe the same thing is true for humans, so in 1958 they
began looking at copper deficiency in various species of animals and
humans and here’s what they found out.
The very first symptom of copper deficiency in
human beings is white, gray and silver hair.
Copper is required as a co-factor to manufacture hair pigment,
doesn’t matter whether it is red, blonde, brown or black hair, and I see
a lot of copper deficiency in this room.
I can almost tell you which people, men and women, have colored
their hair. I’m good at
that, being a physician, and you don’t want to be like a medical doctor
and just treat the symptoms. If
you are coloring your hair, you are just treating the symptoms.
You need to do the basic things, take some colloidal copper, and if
you don’t what’s going to happen is, you get a breakdown in the
elastic fibers of your skin, and you begin getting crows’ feet around
the corners of your eyes and mouth, parts of your anatomy begin to sag,
and you know you’re in trouble when your doctor tells you “I’ve got
a golf buddy down the hall who is a plastic surgeon.
And for $10,000 he’ll make you look 20 years younger.
But you don’t need face-life, a booby-lift, a tummy-tuck, or a
derriere-lift. All you need
is some colloidal copper and everything will come back up, just like you
had a hydraulic jack under it. It
will just come right back up. Those
elastic fibers tighten right up. They’ll
say, “Francine, did you get a face lift?
You look like you are 20 years younger.”
Now if you don’t take some action at that point, the next thing
that happens is, breakdown in your elastic fibers in the large veins of
your legs and you get varicose veins.
You don’t take action at that point, you get a breakdown in the
large veins of your exhaust pipe and you get hemorrhoids.
So if you have hemorrhoids, varicose veins, things that sag,
wrinkles, white, gray or silver hair, the odds are you have aneurysms
developing in you somewhere, and you don’t want to, of course, die
suddenly of a ruptured aneurysm when your body has been warning you for
10, 20, 30 years.
Just remember, people don’t die suddenly of an
aneurysm, it may be you drop and die.
Think about Albert Einstein. He
died of a ruptured aortic aneurysm at 68 years of age.
What color was his hair? He
was famous for wild, white hair, wasn’t he?
Now you would like to think that people who win the Nobel Prize in
Medicine at least live to be 75.5, but they live to be 58 just like other
doctors. And that’s because
they are trained, and they believe, and practice that they can get
everything you need from your four food groups.
Doesn’t matter if you win the Nobel Prize or not.
This guy, Dr. George Kohler, was the youngest
person ever to win the Nobel Prize in Medicine in history.
37 years old, wins the Nobel Prize in Medicine, and he won it by
studying monocline antibodies, which antibodies trained to attack cancer
cells. If they ever get this
really working, it will be great, because they won’t have to use
chemo-therapy anymore, which kills more people than it saves. Eleven years after winning the Nobel Prize in Medicine, Dr.
George Kohler, now 48, drops dead of a cardiomyopathy heart attack,
because he believed/practiced that you can get everything you need from
your four food groups. Didn’t
take any Selenium, died of a cardiomyopathy heart attack.
Now I have to tell you, why athletes are early
warning systems. Couch
potatoes, by definition, are people who go to extraordinary efforts not to
sweat. They make every human
effort not to sweat. They are
changing the TV channels, “Honey, bring in the popcorn, I’m changing
the channels. Honey, bring in
the TV Guide, I’m changing the channels.”
Well, by contract, athletes have the attitude, “no pain, no
gain”. They are out there sweating, working away, power-training,
strength training, running and they sweat.
Athletes, no matter of age, sweat more in 5 years than couch
potatoes do in 70 years. And
when you sweat, you don’t just sweat out Potassium and Gatorade, you
sweat out all 60 essential minerals.
If you sweat out all your Selenium and you don’t replace it by
supplementation, you’re at high risk of getting a cardiomyopathy heart
attack. You sweat out all
your copper and don’t replace it by supplementation, you’re at high
risk of developing an aneurysm and dying suddenly of a ruptured aneurysm.
If you sweat out all your chromium and vanadium and don’t replace
it by supplementation, you’re at high risk of getting diabetes.
And if you sweat out all your calcium and magnesium, boron and
zinc, and sulphur, and other minerals that are required for cartilage,
ligaments, tendons, connective tissue, bone, you’re going to get a
joint/bone injury. What is
the biggest single cause of an athlete’s career being ended early? Joint and bone problems, right?
It’s because they sweat out all the basic minerals they need to
maintain those parts of the body and they don’t supplement with them
because doctors tell them they can get everything they need from the four
What are the early warning system for mineral deficiency? Well, I already told you about white, gray or silver hair for a copper deficiency. Liver spots or age spots on the back of your hand, side of your face or neck is caused by a Selenium deficiency. And you know, again, about Selenium deficiency. Then, of course, you have toe cramps, leg cramps, hypertension. These things are all caused by a deficiency of calcium, and if you’re an athlete at age 25 or 15, and you get a leg cramp, it’s a calcium deficiency. Your body is telling you, if you don’t stop drinking those Pepsis and start supplementing with some calcium, by the time you are 40, 50, 60 years old you’re going to suffer with arthritis and osteoporosis. But most people say, I have to get this high-priced trainer. I need somebody who can give me massage therapy because I have this cramp. And they don’t go and take their supplements.
Now lastly, is a behavior called Pica and
cribbing. Farmers know about
Pica and cribbing. This is
where animals eat non-food items, dirt, rocks, sand, wire, nails, shingles
off the roof. They’ll eat
paint, deer bones, if you see a cow eating deer bones you know they are
mine rally deficient. Even a
farmer with a 4th grade education knows they are minerally
deficient, will give the animals minerals to prevent having rebuild the
fence, and prevent large veterinary bills.
Little kids react the same way.
I’m sure you see little kids who use a plastic shovel or a little
spoon and they are eating dirt out of the garden or out of the houseplant,
maybe on the beach or the playbox at school.
And if you live in one of these new-fangled apartments that have
everything artificial. Man-made
rugs wall to wall, maybe the tile is man-made stuff, nothing organic in
the house. These are kids
that will watch the Disney Channel and they will put the kitty litter box
between their knees, sit there eating the tootsie rolls because it is the
only organic thing in the house. Not
because it tastes good, because of seeking, they have this Pica and
cribbing. Grandfather tends
to be very tolerant and says “Look, kid, if you’ve got to do this, go
over in the corner and do this. I
don’t want to have to watch. Mom
and Grandmom don’t like this, they pick up this kitty litter box, place
it on the kitchen counter, contaminate everybody in the household with
worms, and they still haven’t satisfied the kid’s need for minerals.
And they immediately go over and start eating the caulking from the
windows the lead paint. Not
because it tastes good, but because it’s convenient.
Pregnant women are legendary for having Pica and cribbing.
Usually at 2am, they want pickles and ice cream, curly French
Fries, hot and spicy foods. That’s
because the embryo is taking minerals from the mother, and if they don’t
supplement with minerals faster than the embryo is taking it from them,
they get Pica and cribbing and have these crazy cravings.
Some go out in the middle of the night and eat clay in the full
Then, of course, non-pregnant women also get Pica
and cribbing. Here is where
the snack food industry has really caught on.
The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture says, 95% of all Americans are
deficient in minerals. 95% of
all Americans are going to show mineral deficiency symptoms, including
Pica and cribbing. The snack
food industry has spent billions of dollars over the past 10 or 12 years
convincing you that this behavior of eating non-food items is not called
Pica and cribbing. Cause you
can go look it up in the dictionary, it will say a mineral deficiency.
They’ve convinced you that cravings and binge-eating habits and
behavior is called “the munchies”.
Now when you get the munchies, you are taught to eat their chips
and their dips, and their various snacks, pretzels, popcorn, their
chocolate and Reeses peanut butter cups, and curly French Fries.
That’s why Americans are overweight, basically because we are
minerally deficient. Again we
need 90 essential nutrients, 60 minerals, 16 vitamins, 12 essential amino
acids, and 3 essential fatty acids. And
fortunately, over the thousands of years that human beings have been
around, we haven’t had to think much of this, because our food plants,
our grains, vegetables, fruits and nuts take carbon dioxide out of the air
and manufacture long carbon chains, many of which are vitamins, amino
acids, fatty acids, and this is where this medical ka-ka came from that
you can get everything you need from your four good groups.
Because they say, well, plants, grains, fruits and nuts can
manufacture vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids, but we have tried this
experiment for 200 years. Americans
have eaten better than anybody else in the world.
We have had the best quality of food in the world, over anybody
else, and yet we only live to be 75.5.
We don’t set any health and longevity records.
So if you want to live to be over 100, you can’t get it from
eating your four food groups. You
can live to be 75.5, you may live 10 years older or 10 years younger, but
on the average 75.5. So if
you want to live to be over 100 you do have to supplement with vitamins,
amino acids and fatty acids.
Minerals are a different story. Plants can’t manufacture minerals the way that can
manufacture vitamins, amino acids and fatty acids.
Plants cannot manufacture minerals.
Remember that. Also,
minerals never occur in a uniform blanket around the crust of the earth.
Minerals are in veins, kind of like chocolate-ripple ice cream.
For 100 years, farmers have used a simple fertilizer known as NPK,
nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium because for $25 per acre when I was a
kid, $120 an acre today, NPK gives you the maximum yield in terms of tons
and bushels per acre of ground. Nobody
pays the farmer any kind of cash incentive or gives him a tax break to
make sure you get all 60 essential minerals.
That’s your job. They
grow tons and bushels for domestic sale and for export.
It only takes 5 years for crops to deplete, extract or mine the
minerals out of farmlands or rain soils, and we have been using NPK for
100 years, so you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that
over 90 years, at least, we have been deficient in our soil in America and
as a result our food is deficient, and as a result we spent 1.2 trillion
dollars for healthcare last year. If
the government would just give everybody vitamins, minerals and trace
minerals, it would cut our cost of healthcare from 1.2 trillion to 200
billion. It would cut the
cost of healthcare almost 90%.
One of the things I want you to collect when you
leave here tonight is a summary of US Senate document 264, which says
there is no longer any nutritional minerals left in our farm and rain
soils, and as a result the crops, the grains, fruits and vegetables that
are grown are minerally deficient, and as a result the animals who eat
minerally deficient crops get mineral deficiency diseases, and the only
way to prevent and cure them is with mineral supplements.
Now to me the scary thing about US Senate document 264 is that it
was written and published by the US Senate in 1936.
61 years ago we knew this. This
is when we began to put vitamins and minerals and trace minerals into
animal feed to make up the difference.
Unfortunately for human beings, we got wonder drugs.
We got sulfa drugs in ’36, penicillin in ’38, got cortisone in
’42, and everybody was led to believe that if you just give medical
research enough money, and if you faithfully watch Dr. Marcus Welby, MD,
every week, they will find a wonder drug to fix everything.
We don’t believe that anymore, that’s why you’re here
tonight. Remember this, 1936.
Let’s look at the most common mineral in the human body. 85% of the total mineral is calcium. There’s 147 different diseases you can get from a calcium deficiency. We’ll just go over the top 10 when it comes to the number of people affected and the amount of money involved.
Let’s look at Osteoporosis, the number 10 killer of adults in the United States. Remember, 75% of those over the age of 65 who fracture a hip or leg bone don’t live 90 days. Also, it’s the most horrible disease when it comes to human misery and dollars expended. Osteoporosis. Think of the special vans, and the lift gates, and the ramps and the elevators, the special plumbing in homes and public buildings. Special parking places, wheelchairs and walkers and canes. Think of the beds and the chairs with little electric motors to lift you up when you can’t stand up by yourself. Physical therapists, joint replacement surgery, pharmaceuticals, doctor’s visits. We’re talking billions and billions of dollars for nothing more than a calcium deficiency disease. Now as horrible a disease as Osteoporosis is, in human beings, we don’t have Osteoporosis in animals because we don’t have Blue Cross, Blue Shield, major medical hospitalization, Medicare and Medicaid to pay for non-essential surgical treatments for mineral deficiency, we’ve learned that by putting animals who are weaned off their mother’s milk onto 10 cents of calcium as soon as they are weaned, they won’t get arthritis or Osteoporosis. It’s amazing how that works.
Dentists and dental hygienists will tell you to floss and brush after every meal. If you believe that works I have some ocean-front property in Montana to sell you. If you have receding gums or periodontitis, gingivitis, pyorrhea, loose teeth, bridges and plates, you have Osteoporosis in the facial bones and jaw bones. We don’t get receding gums in animals even though they don’t floss or brush, and that’s because we have cured the Osteoporosis problem in animals.
85% of all arthritis is called wear and tear arthritis. Osteo arthritis, degenerative arthritis, ankleospinalitis(?). These things are nothing more than Osteoporosis of the joint ends of the bones.
· Hypertension/High Blood Pressure:
As you learned, has nothing to do with salt, or salt restriction. 85% of hypertension not related to kidney disease, which is most of them, not related to kidney disease, is, in fact, a calcium deficiency.
not a deficiency of sleeping pills, halcyon or barbiturates, it’s a
deficiency of calcium.
Kidney stones/bone spurs/heel spurs/calcium deposits:
the medical profession has the malignant dumb belief that these things are
due to too much calcium in your diet, try to give up calcium. When,
in fact, you only get kidney stones/bone spurs/heel spurs and calcium
deposits when you have raging osteoporosis.
You actually need more calcium, more magnesium, not less.
Cramps and twitches:
have a calcium deficiency.
University of California, San Diego, 8 years ago now, came out and said
that 85% o the emotional and physical stuff of PMS can be relieved,
eliminated and cured by taking 3
times the RDA of calcium.
Low back pain:
nothing to do with disk problems.
I know you have heard of people, maybe even yourself who have had
disk surgery for back pain, and after the surgery still had the pain,
maybe even worse. Because back pain is not caused by disk problems.
If you have a disk problem, you can have numbness and tingling,
maybe even paralysis if it’s very severe, but disk problems do not cause
pain. If you have low back
pain, the odds are you have cramps and spasms in the large muscle group,
inside and outside your lower back. These
can sublexate(?), or hit the line in your vertebrae and be uncomfortable,
cause a lot of pain. You also
have bone spurs, calcium deposits, arthritis, osteoporosis.
These are the things that cause low back pain.
Now you’re educated, you’re never going to say “Doc, you’re
the doctor”, because you’ve gone through this lecture tonight, and
unfortunately most Americans have not heard this lecture yet, and as a
result, they will spend between $25,000 and $250,000 and voluntarily
undergo 5 to 10 surgical procedures for nothing more than the top ten calcium
In any other industry that would be fraud and they would be shut
down. Something you can fix
for 25 cents and you walk out with a $5,000 bill, you would be ticked off.
You would want to talk to the manager.
You would want your money back.
You would call the Better Business Bureau.
You would call the State Attorney General.
You’d complain. Class
action suit. It would be a big mess.
But the medical profession, everybody just runs to the government
and says we need more money to pay for it.
Kind of fascinating.
of all kinds. Kidney failure,
kidney transplant, kidney dialysis. Contributes
to the numbers of cardiovascular disease, the number 1 killer.
Amputations of toes, feet and legs.
If you let them amputate toes, feet and legs, actually, you can
save your toes, feet and legs. It
takes 4 to 6 months of intensive work, but you can do it.
But if you allow them to amputate a toe, foot or leg you do want,
of course, to put a tag on it so they get the right one.
your doctor, when he diagnoses a new diabetic, he gets very excited.
And he will drop to his knees and give thanks to the Lord, and then
he will jump up and call his real estate agent, cause he knows over
20,30,40 years, if you are a diabetic, you’re going to go through all
these problems – blindness, kidney failure, cardiovascular disease, and
the need for amputations. And
as a result, you are worth to him $250,000 to $500,000.
Just like adding another cow to the dairy herd.
Now to me this is criminal, cause we learned in 1957 in animals
that we could cure adult
with two trace minerals, chromium
12 years ago, 1985, the medical school at the University of Vancouver,
British Columbia, Canada, came out and said the trace mineral vanadium
alone could replace insulin in adult
Science Diet dog food has 40 minerals in it.
Always has chromium, vanadium, lithium and selenium.
Ralston Purina rat pellets has 28 minerals, and always has
chromium, vanadium, lithium and selenium.
I will give anybody in this room a crisp new $100 bill if they can
find me a human infant formula off the shelf of a grocery story that has
more than 12 minerals in it. None
of them contain chromium, vanadium, lithium, and only two, Pro Soy and
Enfamil, has 12, cause they put in the selenium.
The rest don’t. They
have 11, 10, 9, or 8 minerals. Our
dogs get 40 minerals, our rats get 28, and our kids get 12 or less.
You don’t have to be a research scientist to realize why our kids
are now getting all these horrible diseases that used to occur in people
who were 60, 70 or 80. All
these diseases that doctors are wondering “Is this genetic? These kids
shouldn’t have this till they are 60”.
Well that’s because they couldn’t get it out of their little
can of stuff. If it’s not
in the can, they don’t get it.
3 types of minerals that you have to concern yourself with, and I talk
about minerals instead of vitamins because two thirds of the essential
nutrients, 60 out of 90,
Everybody knows everything there is to know about vitamins, and so
we are talking about minerals today.
of all, there’s metallic
These are things like oyster shell, egg shell, limestone, coral
calcium, sea bed minerals, clays of various types, Tums is a popular one
with doctors, lactates, gluconates, citrates, oxides, sulfates,
carbonates. These are nothing
Animals and human beings are only able to get 8 to 12% of these
minerals. We are not designed
to eat ground up rocks as a source of minerals.
When you hit 40 or 50 years of age, have you ever wondered why
people suddenly fall apart when they hit the big 50.
People dread turning 50 for that reason.
The back goes, their teeth get loose, whatever hair
you’ve got left is gray, no interest in sex.
You just kind of fall apart. That’s
because your ability to absorb these elemental minerals drop precipitously
to 3 - 5%.
about 4 years ago in Grand Rapids, Mich., a guy jumps up in the back of
the room and says “Hey, Doc, now I know what I see in my port-a-potty
business. I said “What on
earth do you see in your port-a-potty business?”
He said, “Well, when we clean those things out and disinfect them
to reuse them, we find hundreds and hundreds of vitamins that come through
people”. I said, “Come
on, how do you know they are vitamin pills? They could be anything.”
He said “Oh that’s easy, Doc, on the coating they say Theragram
M, One-a-Day, Centrum and Centrum Silver.”
Now a lot of my patients say, “Look, Doc, I have been taking
2000mg calcium everyday for 20 years, cause I knew it was good for me, yet
I still have hypertension, insomnia, loose teeth, receding gums, low back
problems, bone spurs, kidney stones, arthritis, osteoporosis, all the
stuff you say I shouldn’t have. I’ve
been taking 2000mg calcium everyday”.
I said “Well what kind do you take?”
He said “I take calcium gluconate, calcium citrate, calcium
lactate, oyster shell, eggshell, I take things like Tums.”
I said “Well, there’s your problem.
If you take 1000mg calcium lactate, for example, you’re not
getting 1000mg of calcium, cause 86%, 860mg is lactose, or milk sugar.
Only 14%, or 140mg is metallic or elemental calcium, and let’s
use 10% for usability factors, a fair number, plus it’s easy math, 10%
of 140mg is 14. So if you
take 2 of those calcium lactate tablets, each 1000mg, you’re not getting
2,000mg of calcium, you’re getting 2 times 14, or 28 mg.
To get 2000mg of calcium from these 1000mg calcium lactate tablets,
you would have to take 30 of those with each meal.
Almost a full 100 tablet bottle of these calcium lactate tablets a
day. And of course, at $5 a
bottle for the cheapest one, you’re looking at $150 per month just for
calcium. You’ve 59 more
minerals to go, 16 vitamins, 12 essential amino acids, 3 essential fatty
acids, so this is not an economical way to get your nutrients as elemental
minerals. Also, if you took in 90 tablets of anything a day, you’re
going to develop what we call B&F disease.
B&F disease stands for belching and farting.
You’re going to sound like an elephant out in the woods with a
horrible gastro-intestinal problem. And
of course you know you have B&F disease when your spouse has to throw
a canary in the bathroom to know if it is safe to go in there.
during the 60’s the animal industry came up with what we call chelated minerals.
That’s because farmers are not dumb enough to put a dollar in an
animals mouth and have $.99 come out in the manure.
And so we learned that by adding amino acids, proteins or enzymes to the elemental
it increases absorbability tenfold, from 3-5% to 40%,
and everybody got excited about chelated minerals during the 60’s,
70’s and 80’s. And if you
look at the good multi-vitamin-mineral tablets today, you will see a
mixture of elemental and
the way that animals and people are designed to consume and absorb
minerals is in the plant-derived
form. We are not designed to
eat ground up rocks. Nobody
can show you where humans or animals are designed to eat ground up rocks.
We’re designed to get our minerals by eating plants, grains,
vegetables, fruits and nuts, and as a result, plant-derived colloidal
minerals are 98%
absorbable. Two and a half
times more absorbable than chelated, ten times or more absorbable than the
elemental or metallic minerals.
Plant-derived colloidal minerals are liquid.
They are a very small particle size, 7,000 times smaller than red
blood cells. This is the way
they are stored in your cells and are moved around in plant vascular
systems and human vascular systems, in the liquid plant-derived colloidal
form. They are negatively
charged. I don’t know all
of the physics and the chemistry. It
is one of the basic features of a colloidal mineral, it is negatively
three factors together give you the 98%
Now the way it’s supposed to be is our food plants, our grains,
vegetables, fruits and nuts take the elemental or metallic minerals out of
the soil, convert them to colloidal minerals for their own use, for their
own metabolism and bio-chemistry, and then animals and people eat these
plants that are enriched with minerals.
That is how we are designed to get our minerals.
Unfortunately, we have several problems here.
one, U.S. Senate Document #264 in 1936 says there
is no longer any nutritional minerals left in our farm and rain soil.
For 100 years we have used a simple fertilizer known as NPK.
We put in 3 nutrients into the soil when we need 60 minerals. We put those 3 nutrients into the soil for maximum yields per
ton and bushel per acre. Now
then, we have to understand that plants cannot manufacture minerals.
If they’re not in the soil, they’re not in the plant.
Plants only have minerals in them if they’re in the soil. Plants
cannot manufacture minerals.
minerals do not occur in a uniform blanket around the crust of
minerals occur in veins, kind of like chocolate ripple ice cream..
Also, I guess perhaps the biggest thing that has made America the
most minerally deficient country in the world, is that whenever somebody
would find a nifty little article in a newspaper or magazine on a mineral
or vitamin, they would take it to the doctor and the doctor would poo-poo
it and say “You don’t want to spend money on vitamins and minerals.
You can get everything you need from your four food groups.”
For fifty years physicians have been taking away the interest from
the general public by making them feel foolish.
“You can get everything you need from your four food groups!
Why would you waste your money on those quacks?
If you need a heart transplant for $750,000, I’ll do it.
Why take a mineral to prevent it?”
Well, the last question you have to ask yourself is, what about those cultures that are written up the National Geographic, January, 1973. Those 10 cultures that live to be 120, 140? Are they all genetically related? And the answer is, no. They included certain tribes of Tibetans from the Himalayan Mountains. The Hunzas from Eastern Pakistan and the Karakoram Mountains. The Russian Georgians, Azerbaijani, Turkestanians and Armenians from the Caucasus Mountains in Western Russia, the Vilcabamba Indians from the Andes of Ecuador, my favorites, I just love the name, the Titicacas, and they’ve picked places accidentally, certainly they weren’t knowledgeable of this, just out of a throw of the dice, they picked places that had 60 to 72 minerals in the parent rock of the mountains they chose to live in.
dozens and dozens of cultures who live at the same elevation in
mountains, but they only 3 or 5 or 10 or 12 minerals in the parent rocks
they live in, and so they only live to be 75.5 like us.
That’s the number one thing, 60-72 minerals in the parent rocks
they live in. Secondly,
they all picked places that had less than 2 inches precipitation a year.
No snow, no rain to speak of, and as a result they had to pick
places that were in easy reach of permanent water, they all picked
places within 50 miles of glaciers, and they built aqueducts to carry
water to the valleys they lived in.
Now water that comes out from underneath glaciers is not clear
like Perrier or Evian water, the water that comes out from under
glaciers is cloudy. It has
lots of minerals in it, it’s called glacial milk because it looks like
milk. It’s either white, or grayish white, or grayish blue cause
it has a lot of minerals suspended in it.
As these glaciers move up and down the mountains during the
various parts of the seasons, they grind up literally tens of thousands
of tons of these rocks and the rock dust or rock flour comes out in this
glacial milk. Now you boil
away a quart of glacial milk you get two inches of minerals in that
quart jug. If you boil away a quart of Perrier water, at 20 bucks a
gallon, you are going to get as much minerals as you get on the head of
a pin. A huge disparity. There can be nobody more disappointed than the baby boomers
when they hit 50, 60, 70 years of age and they get all this arthritis
and say “Well, I don’t know how that happened, I’ve been drinking
Perrier my whole life.” And
so they are going to be disappointed.
Now not only do these cultures drink this water, this glacial milk, and get 8-12% and then 3-5% when they’re 40-50 years of age, cause it’s nothing more than ground up rock, metallic minerals. More importantly, in drinking the glacial milk, week after week, month after month, year after year, generation after generation for 2500 to 5000 years, depending on the culture, they irrigated with this glacial milk. And they returned literally tens of thousands of tons of these minerals, this rock dust, this rock flour, back into the soil. Their grains, fruits, vegetables and nuts took this elemental mineral out of the soil, converted to colloidal minerals and the food that they eat are rich with these colloidal minerals. All we put in is NPK, NPK, NPK. As a result, they don’t get, in their early ages, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, they don’t get heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, cataracts, Alzheimer’s Disease, they don’t have birth defects, they don’t have jails full of violent criminals and drug addicts, they don’t have hospitals, they don’t have health insurance. My God, how could you live there? They don’t have health insurance! But they live healthily to be 120, 140 because they have the raw materials to maintain and repair their body.
This is Dr. Wallach with a final message. Information gives you the ability to make decisions with confidence. I hope you’ve enjoyed my message. By giving your body the proper raw materials everyday, you’ll be taking the necessary steps in living healthier, and living longer. Make the decision to take control of your personal health and longevity program, today. Colloidal minerals are not like antibiotics. You don’t get a prescription which you use for 10 days, and then you’re done. Your prescription for colloidal minerals should only expire when your need for oxygen expires. You need to supplement your diet with the 90 essential nutrients, each and every day of your life. Millions of people have heard my message all across the world and have now decided to make the consumption of colloidal minerals a daily ritual. Just as there are many manufacturers of aspirin, there are now many manufacturers of vitamins and mineral supplements. Be sure to get your liquid colloidal minerals derived only from the very best organic plant source deposits. Colloidal minerals are the mineral source our bodies were designed to use, not ground up rocks. Since you will most likely need supplementing your diet everyday, don’t get caught paying retail prices. My Daddy always said, “Why pay retail, when you can buy wholesale”. One of my trusted colleagues will show you how to purchase the highest quality products wholesale, you can save gobs of money off the retail price each year.
Live long and prosper.
