Dr. Joel Wallach, a nutritionist from Missouri, was guest speaker for the Health and Wellness Seminar, Monday at 6 p.m. in the Student Union Theater.
Dr. Wallach attended the University of Missouri where he received a bachelor’s degree in the Agriculture.�
After graduating, he was a veterinarian pathologist for 30 years with the National Institute of Health and worked with several other organizations.
Dr. Wallach was the first one to discover and identify the first animal models for cystic fibrosis in monkeys.
He found that he could reproduce their condition at will because it was a nutritional deficiency.
His find offered great promise for children with the disease, but when he made it public, Emory University fired him with a 24-hours’ notice.
Perplexed, Dr. Wallach decided to attend medical school so he could treat children that suffer from cystic fibrosis directly.
Dr. Wallach believed a traditional medical school would repress his ideas just as the National Institute had, so he instead accepted an invitation to teach nutrition at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Oregon.
“Ninety-nine percent of American people are deficient in minerals, and a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in a disease,” according to a study made by the U.S. Senate.
Dr. Wallach said, “The only way you can heal your body is to give it the 90 essential nutrients daily that it needs to rebuild and maintain itself over time.”
Dr. Wallach is one of the most popular health lecturers, and speaks to hundreds of people advising them on how to overcome diseases through proper nutrition.
He has sold over 120-million copies of his CD, “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie,” and published several books on dietary deficiencies.
Dr. Wallach’s nutritional company, Youngevity, is dedicated to providing nutritional and healthy lifestyle solutions by providing products that promote a long, healthy life.
