Then in laboratory, Oh I should tell you too, we said this on the show
today, those of you who may not have heard it, some of you didn't hear the
whole show. The first symptoms of a zinc deficiency is that you lose your
sense of smell and your taste. You say, "Ah, food just doesn't
good anymore," and you don't have a cold or anything like that. And
you say, your wife says, "Aren't you excited about dinner? I spent
the whole day in the kitchen cooking dinner." He says, "Well, I
didn't smell anything when I walked in". You know he's got a zinc
selenium deficiency also results in thyroid hormone utilization defect,
with all the consequences it.
The three isozymes catalyzing deiodination of thyroid hormones and
iodothyronines derived thereof exert a major role in tissue- and
development-specific expression of thyroid hormone action in target
tissues by activating the prohormone T4 to thyromimetically active T3 or
by inactivating the prohormone T4 or active T3 in non-target tissues at
inappropriate time points. These three isozymes, in cooperation with the
enzymes responsible for non-deiodinative degradation of iodothyronines,
thus act as "guardians of the gate" to nuclear thyroid hormone
receptors and other cellular target sites for thyroid hormone action.
Strict and distinct hormonal, nutritional and nerval regulation of
expression of the deiodinase isozymes warrants a closely coordinated
control of thyroid hormone action, which directs growth, differentiation,
and basal metabolic functions in the developing and the adult organism
both in the periphery and in the central nervous system. The integrative
action of this essential homeostatic and dynamic ancient hormone system in
higher vertebrates is under the influence of two essential trace elements,
iodine and selenium, which both are inadequately available for man and
life stock in great parts of the world.."
is characterized by a ringing or buzzing in the ear. “Orthodox” doctors suggest that “surgery is of no value; if you can’t tolerate the ringing, play background music.” In reality, there are a variety of causes of tinnitus including hypertension, lead, mercury toxicity, nutritional deficiencies, osteoporosis, food allergies and/or hypoglycemia. Do the necessary laboratory work to make a specific diagnosis including the pulse test, six-hour GTT and hair analysis. Take the base line nutritional program. Treatment of tinnitus should include the treatment of the underlying disease, avoid offending food allergens, autoimmune urine therapy, avoid sugar and all refined foods, zinc at 50 mg t.i.d., tin from plant derived colloidal minerals, essential fatty acids at 5 gm t.i.d., vitamin A at 300,000 IU per day as beta carotene, calcium and magnesium at 2,000 and 1,000 mg per day and betaine HCI and pancreatic enzymes at 75-200 mg t.i.d. 15 minutes before meals.

Dr. Wallach, you talked about the effects of pollution
in your studies. How about
the pollution that we’re getting? Is
this going to help us out any?
We have problems with pollution as a
human being, as our body will store toxic
the organic chemicals like DDT and the minerals that are toxic, like lead
and mercury, cadmium. It
stores in our fat and in our liver, which is the big filter in our body,
kind of filters the blood, and for our body to get rid of these toxins,
for our body to actually process them so they can get them out and not
store them in our body, we require an enormous
amount of vitamins and trace minerals to pull this off.
We need antioxidants
to protect us at the cellular level, which the granddaddy of course, is Selenium,
the trace mineral Selenium, and then
there’s Calcium and you have Zinc
and you have Magnesium and you have Vitamin
C, Vitamin E and Beta Carotene, Vitamin A,
and you have the Pycnogenol and the grapeseed
extract, and you
have things like the green tea. These will
all help protect you from the specific toxins at the cellular level, and
even Selenium alone will help you dump or
get rid of toxic metals like mercury and excessive amounts of arsenic. Calcium
will be a great civic antidote for lead
then you have all 90
which will help your liver process any stored organo-chemical, any of the
DDTs or the TCB, agricultural chemicals and industrial waste that might
get into your fat and your liver. Your
body will get rid of these if it’s healthier and it’s able to do all
of the chemical processes that we need to do to get past all of these toxins
in our body.
Then there's cramps and twitches. You wake up in the middle of the night and your foot is all cramped up around your neck, you say, "Lord, take me from the knee down. I'm not going to make it until morning". We've all experienced that. It's very common.
The one that bothered me when I was a teenager, was twitches. My
eyelids used to twitch. I'd look in the mirror and I'd say, "Do
people see that? Or is that just my imagination?" Sure enough, I
could see it actually twitching. So I showed my Mom and she got panicked,
you know. This was during the early '50's, and she grabbed me by the shirt
and took me down to this lady doctor, I'll never forget, her name was Mary
Jane Skepington. And she had me sit down in my jockey underwear on those
little stainless steel stool that you can wrench down and up, and sitting
there in my jockey underwear for an hour, she'd look in my eye for 10 or
15 minutes. She couldn't figure it out, so she would go on to another
patient and come back. I knew she was lost. Today that would be sexual
harassment, sitting there naked for an hour in the doctor's office. But
then I knew she was just lost. So I said, "Look, Doc, I'm a man (I
was 14 years old), and I play football and I'm on the wrestling team and
the weight-lifting team in my highschool. If you have to amputate my
eyelids, just do it!" She got the picture. She went in her office,
she had a Maybelline Mascara eyelash brush and a little mirror. I kind of
looked at her and said, "What's that for?" And she said,
"The only thing I can figure out is that your eyelashes have curled
back and is tickling your eyeballs and that is what is making your eyelids
twitch. So what I want you to do is to retrain your eyelashes with this
Maybelline Mascara brush." I said "Wait a minute, Doc, you want
me to sit on the bench, during the..., when the team...., you know, and
you want me to do this? Oh the team will kill me! You've got to be
kidding. So I put on my pants, and I leave, and I go to the school
library, and I get out a health book, written by two nurses, and I look up
muscle cramps and muscle twitches, and it says "calcium
deficiency"! So I knew when I was 14 years old that
doctors didn't know anything about nutrition. And it hasn't changed,
believe me. Oh, I forgot to tell you how I fixed it. I went home and I
grabbed some of those calf pellets, and after eating a handful a day for 3
days they were all gone and never came back. So if you see me with a
handful of stuff bulging in my pocket, you know it's calf pellets.
How many of you have heard that? If you don't raise your hand you've got Alzheimer's or you're fibbing, right? Well we knew fifty years ago in the veterinary industry that ulcers in pigs were caused by a bacteria called helicobacterpilory and of course we couldn't get one of these high-prices stomach surgeons from Mayo Clinic, (in fact, we always used to yell, "Hold the Mayo" when they would say stuff like that), and otherwise your pork chops would be $275 a pound to pay for that kind of surgery. We learned that with a trace mineral called bismuth and the tetracycline antibiotic that we could prevent and cure those stomach ulcers in pigs without surgery. And so that's what we did. Costs $5 to cure a pig of stomach ulcers with bismuth, a trace mineral, and tetracycline. The National Institute of Health, not the National Enquirer, came out in February of this year, February, 1994, and said ulcers are caused by a bacteria called helicobacterpilory, not stress. And they can be cured, (they actually used the cure word in this news release), (medical researchers never do that, they say "shows promising results", or "may be beneficial", they use the cure word), they can be cured by the use of the trace mineral, bismuth, and tetracycline.
For those of you who don't know what bismuth comes in, you can get it
from any grocery store, or drug store. It's pink, about $2.95 for an 8 oz.
bottle, and it's called Pepto-Bismol. So a teaspoon of
some Orymiacin pellets, you can take care of ulcers. You have your choice
of whether you are going to treat your own for $5, or go get whittled on.
It's your choice.
Clinical trials of long-chain omega-3 fatty acid supplementation have
demonstrated beneficial effects less consistently in patients with
inflammatory bowel disease than in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Although two randomized controlled trials of fish oil supplementation in
disease patients reported no benefit (105,
106), a significantly higher proportion of Crohn’s disease
patients supplemented with 2.7 g/day of EPA + DHA remained in remission
over a 12-month period than those given a placebo (107).
Three randomized controlled trials of EPA + DHA supplementation (4.2-5.4
g/day for 3-12 months) in ulcerative
colitis patients reported significant improvement in at least one
outcome measure, including weight gain, decreased corticosteroid use,
improved disease activity scores and improved histology scores (108-110).
In contrast, supplementation of ulcerative colitis patients in remission
with 5.1 g/day of EPA + DHA did not significantly alter the incidence of
relapse over a 2-year period (111).
Chrohn's Disease (Regional enteritis): is a chronic infiltration or invasion of defensive WBCs and "macrophages" (special scavenger cells) into the terminal ileum (last portion of small intestine that joins with the colon). Several theories are currently in vogue as to the cause of Crohn's Disease including infection with T.B. like organisms (similar to Johne's Disease in camels!!!); of interest here is the high incidence of Crohn's Disease in Minnesota compared with all other areas of the U.S. A second and perhaps more realistic cause is a food allergy (i.e. wheat, milk), do a pulse test and practice rigorous avoidance program of any identified allergens --this will prevent acute (sudden) attacks and actually result in reversal of the Crohn's changes to normal. Compare this with cortisone and surgery that the 'orthodox' medics would have you choose!!!!
Treatment of Crohn's Disease includes a high fiber diet (be sure to do a pulse test to be sure not to use the fiber you are allergic to!), folic acid at 5-10mg t.i.d., vit A at 300,000 IU/day as beta carotene, B-12 at 1,000 mcg/day (best by injection in this disease), vit. C to bowel tolerance if it can be tolerated. Calcium and magnesium at 2,000 and 1,000 mg per day(don't forget the base line supplement program here), selenium at 300 mcg t.i.d., chromium at 75mcg t.i.d. and zinc at 50mg t.i.d. Autoimmune urine therapy can be very useful.

Chrohn's Disease: Should
you have intestinal malabsorption, the Longevity Institute recommends
supplementing your diet with minerals,
vitamins and essential fatty acids.
Then, there's the varicose veins. That's caused by an elastic fiber breakdown. Then, of course, parts of your body begin to sag, under your arms, your breasts, your belly, your legs, all this stuff starts sagging, and you can go to a cosmetic surgeon, a plastic surgeon if you want, but it is a lot cheaper, and a lot more effective, and a lot safer if you just take some copper.
Dr. Cartright may have had a medical degree, but he didn't have expensive urine, so he died of something that even a turkey wouldn't die from.
And here's one, this fellow, he was a doctor's doctor , Dr. Martin
Carter. He almost made it. He died at age 57. He got his medical degree
from Harvard Medical School, and his PH.D. in medicine from Yale. Of
course he was autopsied by the best because he was a doctor's doctor, and
it said, "The cause of death was a ruptured aortic aneurysm",
said Dr. Jewels Hurst, of Rockerfellow University Hospital. What did he
die from? Copper deficiency. See, he didn't have expensive urine either.
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.
Joel Wallach had this disease renamed after him - Wallach's vertigo.
