Best Selling Author of Dead Doctors Don't Lie, Still Carries Message on Health

Kevin Surbaugh

In November 2012, I had the chance to meet Dr. Joel Wallach (author: Dead Doctors Don't Lie) when he spoke to a packed gymnasium at a huge Austin, TX mega-church, who wanted to get control of their health naturally.

Wallach was 73 years old at the time of this talk, but you would never know by looking at him, in 2018, he is 77 (78 in June) and still traveling the country.  He studied veterinarian medicine, worked with Marlin Perkins (Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom) then went back to school to study Naturopathic Medicine. He then began to apply the ideas applied to veterinarian medicine to humans. In a nutshell, he was the first to teach that most health issues could be addressed by nutrition rather than medication. Medication only treats the symptoms rather than the cause. A proper diet with nutritional supplements is the best way to address the cause rather than the symptoms. If you address the cause, that, in turn, will take care of the symptoms.
He and the nutritional supplements that he developed are the only ones to successfully go against the FDA. In fact, he has successfully sued the FDA not once but eight times.
During his talk he discussed cholesterol. He said it had nothing to do with heart problems. Rather, it is like the red warning light on the dashboard of your car, it is only a warning of a problem. We don't want to be lowering cholesterol rather we want to find out what the high cholesterol is warning us about.  He told women about the dangers of getting a mastectomy exam. One mastectomy gives off as much radiation as five chest x-rays. Instead, he urges women to self-monitor themselves, if they develop a tender spot then ask the doctor for a high-resolution ultrasound with no radiation.
After this, he moved into the proper diet and how it is hard to get the nutrients solely from our food.Which is why we need to be in a supplemental program. Here's the deal veterinarians have increased animal lives by adding nutrients to their diets yet we as humans eat food that really isn't fit for a dog (for example most of us can remember when a dogs average lifespan was eight years, now it's 2-3 times longer). The reason our food isn't getting the nutrients from the soil like it once did. We no longer out ashes from the wood stove on our gardens like we use to.As a result, the soil has become depleted from the soil. There are 90 essential vitamins and minerals that we like our animals need to have a long life.Most of which, we can only ensure that we will get from nutritional supplementation. Much of what we have been told is wrong. For example, in the 1980's only 14% of Americans were overweight. Today nearly 40% of Americans are overweight. Why? Because the medical doctors are telling us to be healthier we need to eat better, so we cut the sugar (as we should) while we eat more whole grains. Stop and think about it for a minute. What do we give cows to fatten them up so we can have that nice juicy steak? Whole Grains! Let's take a clue and improve our diets realistically.
Another problem is we are drinking too much water without nutritional supplements. The water (which we need) is washing the vitamins and minerals out of our bodies. We must add nutritional supplements to keep those needed vitamins and minerals in our bodies.
