There’s this doctor, Dr. Joel Wallach, who wrote a book entitled, “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie”.
In his book, Dr. Wallach frowns upon the corruption of today’s MDs, saying they are all basically hookers for the pharmaceutical industry.
He references diseases like ulcers, cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, kidney stones, varicose veins, stroke, cardio myopathy, cravings, liver or age spots, hyperactive children, low blood sugar, diabetes, baldness, hearing problems, osteoporosis, smell and taste loss, gingivitis, hypertension, high blood pressure, insomnia, muscle cramps, PMS, and low back pain.
Dr. Wallach says that virtually all doctors recommend synthetic chemicals to treat the symptoms of all those illnesses and never once address the cure.
So, throughout his endless verbiage he recommends vitamins and minerals to treat all illnesses. I guess for a doctor that’s a major breakthrough.
His recommendations to, in some way, treat all the above afflictions are the use of carotene, vitamin E, beta-carotene, magnesium, boron, calcium, selenium, chromium, vanadium, zinc, amino acids, and essential fatty acids.
Unfortunately, he never mentioned where all he talked about could be found in food or the mineral sulfur, which would heal just about everything he listed. To take all the other ‘healers” he mentioned, would require spending as much money on them as someone would on the synthetic pharmaceuticals.
So, I got to thinking. I’ve been studying the link between diet and disease since 1975 and was forced, in 2007, to get a Masters degree in nutrition to shut up the MDs that would call in on my radio show asking what my credentials were (I guess telling them I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the School of Hard Knocks fell a bit short).
Anyway, in my mind, I felt that there had to be a more economical way to get all he advised. So, I began researching. What I discovered absolutely agreed with what my mind thought before the process began.
Everything he talked about could be found in food. But the type was a mind-blower.

Regarding dairy products, they contain too much calcium. Only 30 percent is absorbed and the remaining 70 percent never makes it past the intestinal wall and simply comes out with the doodoo.
A key mineral and central to building strong tissue, maintaining blood volume, and producing energy in your cells. In the foods commonly eaten, there are small amounts of copper and the amount of copper you eat is directly related to the amounts of minimally processed plant foods you get every day. Copper deficiency has a direct link to ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Copper also enhances antioxidant protection, bone and tissue integrity, energy support, and cholesterol balance.
Refined grains have half the copper content as whole grains. Cooking at high temperatures will impair our ability to absorb the copper from those foods. The best solution is raw or lightly steamed.
Oh yeah, the following are symptomatic of low copper: Anemia, high cholesterol, fatigue, low immune function, osteoporosis, slow wound healing, cardiac arrhythmia, arthritis.

If you made it this far I am sure you noticed one predominate factor that Dr. Wallach did not: The essential foods to keep you well are mostly, as much as possible, organic, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds and whole grains. In other words, a vegan diet.
So, why if everything can be kept under control by avoiding flesh, dairy, eggs and synthetic chemicals, does the tongue override the intelligence?
As far as supplementing the basics of putting unleaded fuel in the gas tank, organic sulfur crystals, fresh bee pollen, and super foods like Orgain organic protein creamy dark chocolate powder, Rejuvenate: Berries and Herbs and Raw Power (chocolate) Protein Powder from the Natural News store, are the fuel additives that keep my engine running smoothly and do the trick. I kid you not!
