What Dr. Joel Wallach has to say about the following issue: 

Note:  The typist did not know medical terms, so some words may be misspelled.  Our apologies.

Weight Loss/Overweight: Wrinkles: Yoga:
Non-healing wounds: ZINC  

Wrinkles:

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.
(Dead Doctors Don't Lie)

MEDITATION and YOGA:

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.

WEIGHT LOSS:

Obesity/Overweight, bottom line, is a deficiency disease – a deficiency of an entire category of essential nutrients – minerals.  Certainly the symptoms and clinical presentation of the simple uncomplicated deficiencies are rarely seen anymore, as they are exacerbated or aggravated by the increased intake of sugars and carbohydrates and reduction in exercise.

It is the intersection of multiple deficiencies AND the excess intake of calories that produce obesity.

The deficiency of two or more essential minerals will produce a significant level of pica, cravings and binge eating.  Iron and phosphorus deficiencies occurring at the same time will result in an almost psychotic binge-eating and soft drink consumption rampage that results in morbid obesity.

The act of reducing calories from carbohydrate, fat and protein can result in weight loss, however, reducing calories alone does not solve the systemic effects of mineral deficiencies, which explains why individuals who drop off of the highly restricted diets of all types will regain the weight that they had lost; it also explains why many individuals maintain or gain weight even when they are truly cutting back on calories.

Glucose is an “all-purpose” fuel sugar that can be used as a source of energy by the body.  However, the overt intake of sugars is not necessary, as adequate levels of blood glucose can be made from dietary or stored fat and protein.  Sugars and carbohydrates are not essential nutrients, they are quick sources of energy, they can be fun to eat, however, they are not necessary or essential to consume.

The increased intake of carbohydrate in the form of sugar (one half pound per person per day in 2004 compared with one half pound per person per year in the 1700s) and the deficiencies of minerals are the basic root causes of obesity.  It is an interesting fact, that as the Asian and Latin American countries “catch up to western countries in terms of lifestyles and economics”, their rates of obesity catch up as well!

What is the Metabolic Syndrome?  The Metabolic Syndrome is characterized by insulin resistance, hypertension, elevated cholesterol and triglycerides and abdominal obesity.

The cause of the Metabolic Syndrome is not genetic, but rather a collection of multiple essential nutrient deficiencies including deficiencies as illustrated in the following table:

Nutrient Deficiency

Clinical Disease

Omega 3 essential fatty acids

Elevated total cholesterol, elevated LDL, obesity, peripheral neuropathies, thombotic disease, atherosclerosis

Calcium

Hypertension, osteoporosis, peripheral neuropathies, insomnia, pica, obesity

Chromium, vanadium

Diabetes, insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, hypoglycemia, pica, anxiety, depression, obesity

Selenium

Cancer, cardiomyopathy heart disease, cataracts, macular degeneration, hypothyroidism, arteriosclerosis, atherosclerosis, pica

Niacin

Pellagra, elevated cholesterol, dermatitis, dementia, diarrhea

Phytonutrients (antioxidants)

Inflammation, arteriosclerosis, macular degeneration, cataracts, obesity, Metabolic Syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease.

The Metabolic Syndrome sets up a systemic “inflammation crises” that produces arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis of small and medium caliber arteries (cerebral, coronary and carotid arteries) by causing free radical damage to the single layer of intimal cells that line arteries, and by damaging (free radical damage) a portion of the circulating cholesterol to produce a higher level of LDL or “bad cholesterol.”

The intersection of mineral deficiencies that cause pica aka “the munchies”, critical deficiencies of chromium and vanadium and the universal availability and high intake of sugar and carbohydrates is the basic root cause of obesity, diabetes and the Metabolic Syndrome.  It is that simple.   If everyone were to supplement properly, with the correct mineral mix, we could eliminate obesity, high blood pressure, adult onset type II diabetes and the Metabolic Syndrome in America within a year – and the world would soon follow our example.
