FIBROMYALGIA: BABY FORMULAS FUNGUS (nail or wart)
Gall Bladder/Gall Stones GENETIC DISEASES: Gingivitis/Receding Gums:
GRAY HAIR(1): Gray hair(2):  

FIBROMYALGIA:

Q:  Dr. Wallach, my 16 year old daughter has been diagnosed as having Fibromyalgia.  What can you do for her?

A:  Thatís actually an easy one.  We eliminated fibromyalgia in animals in 1957.  In sheep it was called Ďstiff lamb diseaseí and also in sheep and calves and fouls, baby horses, and chickens and turkeys and any other animals that were raised for meat, the disease is caused by a deficiency of 3 nutrients:  the trace mineral Selenium, Vitamin E and the sulfur bearing amino acid, methianine.  And thereís two things you have to do to deal with fibromyalgia.  Number 1, eliminate the free radicals and the trans fatty acids that actually initiate damage to the muscle and causing the scarring of the muscle tissues, very painful, even normal muscle movement.  And you can understand why they call it Ďstiff lamb diseaseí, if you have fibromyalgia.  So you eliminate fried foods, such as fried potatoes, which teenagers live on fried potatoes, right so eliminate fried potatoes, fried chicken, fish, shrimp, fried eggs, tempura, stir fry, anything fried, all margarines, salad dressings with oils in them have to be eliminated, and then again the Pig Arthritis formula is perfect because it has optimal amounts of the trace mineral Selenium and both the plant-derived colloidal and the chelated form, has optimal amount of Vitamin E and sulfur bearing amino acid, methianine, it just works like a charm.  Quickly, within weeks and months so they feel and they can recognize some benefit and many people will get significant benefit very quickly.

BABY FORMULAS/Sudden Infant Death Syndrome:

Q:  Dr. Wallach, are baby formulas enough for our babies when they are born?

A:  Unfortunately not.  Our formulas we give to dogs, or kittens, have 40 minerals in them, including the minerals lithium, chromium, vanadium, selenium.  Ralston Purina laboratory rat pellets contain 28 minerals, including lithium, chromium, vanadium, selenium.  Thereís not a single human milk replacer on the market on or off the shelf of a grocery store that has more than 12 minerals.  None of them contain lithium, chromium, vanadium and only 2, Pro Soy Bean and Enfamil have Selenium in them.  And itís tragic that we give our dogs 40 minerals and our rats 28 and our kids 12 or less, you can begin to see why we spend 1.2 trillion dollars for healthcare last year. 

You can begin to see why we only live to be 75.5, half of our genetic potential for longevity of 120 to 140, why we only ranked 17th in longevity and 19th in healthfulness, simply because we donít get the basic raw material to develop properly and maintain the repair of cells from the very beginning.  Iíll give you a tragic example.  Sudden infant death syndrome is something everybody is familiar with.  We eliminated sudden infant death syndrome in animals back in 1950ís because farmers canít afford to lose 2 or 3 or 5% of the baby animals they are raising to sudden infant death syndrome.  And we learned it was due to a deficiency of the trace mineral, Selenium, causing sudden death in the most robust and healthiest of the baby animals in the group or the herd or the flock, and we eliminated it simply by giving the pregnant mothers Selenium. 

  And as soon as the baby was born or hatched it would get Selenium and if you look at the human infant milk replacers on the market, only 2 of all of them put Selenium in the formula.  And so, if I were going to raise a child today on these infant milk replacers, the infant milk formulas in a can, or bottle or box, I would pick the two, Pro Soy Bean and Enfamil that have Selenium in them.  And to stack things in favor of the child, I would still give the, from the moment they are born, teaspoon per 20 lbs. of body weight of the Pig Arthritis formula twice a day.  You may not want to use the orange juice in a newborn baby because they can develop allergies to it.  But that would still give them the plant-derived colloidal and the chelated minerals and vitamins and amino acids, and the tragic example of this is, 65% of all the babies dying of sudden infant death syndrome in America are being fed canned milk replacers.  Two-thirds of the ones who die of sudden infant death syndrome are being fed these canned infant formulas.  I guarantee you they are being fed the ones that donít have Selenium in them.  And so, absolutely, itís important to supplement these babies from birth because you canít get everything from your 4 food groups.  Certainly not out of these canned formulas.

FUNGUS (Nail or Wart):

Surprisingly, Compound W wart remover works for both nail or wart.  Also good is oregano oil or lavender oil.

Gall Bladder/Gall Stones:

Is generally caused by liver problems, especially with fat and cholesterol metabolism.  Gallbladder "attacks" are caused by a cramping of the muscles in the gallbladder after a fatty meal or a temporary blockage of the bile duct by a gallstone.  Gallstones are composed of cholesterol and fat when they first form and become calcified after the passage of time.  Prevention of gallbladder problems includes the use of glycyrrhizin (an extract of the licorice plant, Glycyrrhyza glabra), the base line nutritional supplement including 5 gm of essential fatty acids t.i.d.  Eggs are known to precipitate 93% of all gallbladder attacks, followed closely by onions and pork.

Treatment of gallbladder disease and gallstones includes the use of high fiber diets (i.e., make sure you are having 2-3 bowel movements per day), lecithin at 2,500 mg t.i.d., essential fatty acids at 5 gm t.i.d., vitamin E at 800-1,200 IU per day, vitamin C to bowel tolerance, selenium at 200 mcg t.i.d., and taurine at 500 mg t.i.d., 2 oz. of virgin olive oil in eight oz. of grapefruit or lemon juice will help to flush liver; herbs include acrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria), blessed thistle (Cnicus benedictus), vumitory (Fumaria officinalis), horehound (Marrubium vulgare), licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), peppermint (Mentha piperita), wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), artichoke (Cynara scolymus), sweet coltsfoot (Petasites hybridus), celandine (Chelidonium majus), chicory (Cichorium intybus), and dandelion (Taraxacum officinale).

He says to eat broccoli, fish, shellfish, chicken, milk, yogurt, legumes, mushrooms, avocado, and sweet potatoes.

MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY/GENETIC DISEASES:

Q:  If you know you have a dominant gene in your body for muscular dystrophy and you know the mother has it, is there any way you wonít pass it on to your children through minerals and vitamins before you get pregnant?

A:  Okay, thatís a good question, because thereís this false belief in the medical profession that muscular dystrophy is due to a dominant gene, to genetics, genetically transmitted.  Weíve learned in the animal industry thatís not true, and you can understand why we are so excited in the animal industry, we have eliminated muscular dystrophy back in the 1950ís and nobody knows more about muscle physiology, muscle health and muscle disease than a veterinarian.  Cause what is muscle?  Itís meat.  And we know more about growing healthy meat than anybody in the world, as veterinarians.  And so we eliminated muscular dystrophy in all the farms, from animals, because a farmer could not stay in business economically, if they had lambs and calves, and pigs and chickens and turkeys being born or hatched with muscular dystrophy.  It just wouldnít be a profitable industry.  By eliminating muscular dystrophy and fibromyalgia and all the diseases that affect muscles, we were able to make the agricultural industry a profitable industry and keep the cost of animal products such as meat, dairy, poultry and eggs down to where the average American could afford to eat them everyday.  And by using these same nutritional principles, getting the muscles all 90 essential nutrients during pregnancy and also immediately after birth, the odds of having a child with muscular dystrophy is reduced to almost zero.  And so, I wouldnít be too excited about the pronouncement that you have a genetic disease.  Itís just probably not so.

Gingivitis/Receding Gums:

Then, there's receding gums, dentists and periodontists will tell you that if you want to prevent and cure receding gums you had better floss and brush after every meal. If you believe that works, I have some ocean-front property in Montana to sell you. You all know your geography, you know that doesn't work. Now as a veterinarian, I've seen hundreds of thousands of animals of all kind, mice, rats, rabbits, dogs, cats, sheep, pigs, horses, lions, tigers, bears, and they don't get receding gums. And they don't floss. But they do get flunky breath, but they don't get receding gums. Boy if you want to smell something you just let a camel breathe on you. Well, the reason we don't have receding gums in livestock is because we've dealt with the Osteoporosis problem. Receding gums is not a deficiency of flossing, it is, in fact, Osteoporosis of the jawbones and the facial bones. So if you have gingivitis or receding gums, you have advanced Osteoporosis. Those bones around your teeth are melting away, little bit by little bit everyday. And if you take your teeth out at night and put in a glass next to your bed in that fizzy stuff, you have major, advanced Osteoporosis because all your bone has melted away.  (calcium)(see Osteoporosis).

COPPER/MINERAL OVERDOSE/GRAY HAIR(1):

Q:  Dr. Wallach, I would first of all like to personally salute you for the efforts that youíre making.  I, like so many other people, was vaguely aware of things.  You certainly have got my attention.  Iíd like to come back, just for a second, on this copper thing.  Copper, if a person has those visual symptoms, gray hair and that, and decides to supplement and go after it a little bit, is it possible, or what is the maximum that a person can take without, Iíve heard that you can take too much copper?

A:  Itís a great question, because people are concerned about overdosing with vitamins and minerals, including copper, and Iíll answer you two ways, one in a generality, then specifically.

The general answer is that if you look at the medical profession, according for the Center for Disease Control, Harvard Medical School, the US News and World Report, Ralph Nader, Sydney Wolf, Rand Corporation and many many other well respected institutions, they say that doctors kill 150,000 to 300,000 Americans each year in hospitals alone, as a result of medical negligence.  Doctors injure 1.3 million Americans each year in hospitals alone as a result of medical negligence, and doctors infect 2 million Americans alone in hospitals as a result of medical negligence, for a total of 3.5 million casualties inflicted upon the public in hospitals, just as a result of medical negligence.

On the other side of this picture, thereís not a single person who has overdosed on vitamins and minerals and trace minerals, including copper, where they have to be hospitalized or anything bad happen.  And so when you compare the safety of vitamins and minerals and trace minerals, including copper, compared with standard medical procedures, itís enormously safe.  And thatís why Iím so excited about nutrition, and the Pig Arthritis formula, and the plant-derived colloidal minerals, including copper.

Now to answer your question specifically, I can tell you this, if you take the plant-derived colloidal copper and the chelated copper like you find in the Pig Arthritis formula, two doses a day, the hair color will begin to come back.  It always starts at the nape of the neck, comes over the crown of the head then down the sides of the head.  And when that happens, almost everybody sees some repair, maybe significant, maybe total repair of the veins and the arteries, by repairing the elastic fibers.  Iím reluctant to give you a milligram dose, because the first thing somebody does is run out and get x number of milligrams of copper and in of itself, a lone free-standing nutrient, youíre not going to be happy with the results because of the lack of absorbability and these other co-factors such as amino acids that have to be there for the copper to work very efficiently, including a trace mineral called molybdenum.  And so, I prefer to tell you to take the Pig Arthritis formula twice a day and if you want to speed up the process, Youngevity has a great product called Ultimate Selenium which has some additional chelated copper in it.  And thatís the direction I would go.

Gray hair(2):

Gray hair is the first sign. We start getting gray hair, regardless of age, you have a copper deficiency. You get skin wrinkles, because the elastic fibers in your skin are going... those little crows feet around your eyes, facial and body skin wrinkles. You look like you're a little prune, drying up.
