The Wallach RevolutionThe Citizens Committee for Better Medicine is proud to present “The Wallach Revolution – (An Unauthorized Biography of a Medical Genius)”. The book is now available and chronicles the challenges, successes, and unique perspective of Dr. Joel D Wallach, a true pioneer in the field of science-based, clinically verified medical nutrition.

Cystic Fibrosis in China: Further Debunking the Gene Theory of Disease
Wallach’s study confirmed his hypothesis. Of the 1,700 Chinese child cadavers autopsied, 595 (or 35 percent) had the classic tissue changer for cystic fibrosis! He also found that every one of the 1,700 child cadavers had classic tissue changes of cardiomyopathy and mulberry heart disease, a selenium-deficiency muscular dystrophy of the heart found in pigs. That later discovery broke down another convention, that mulberry heart disease was thought to be a vital disease peculiar to swine. Drs. Wallach and Ma Lan’s findings were published in 1990 in the journal Biological Trace Elements Research and Chinese Medical Journals.
Increasingly, Wallach’s research has confirmed that the genetic theory of disease lacks a sound scientific foundation. Repeatedly, as he explains in Epigenetics, Wallach has discovered that diseases presumed to be genetic, such as sickle cell anemia, are in fact not triggered by a genetic defect (i.e., do not involve a change in the DNA sequence) but are instead the byproducts of nutritional deficiencies during pregnancy. In some cases, those deficiencies in the pregnant mother translate into abnormalities in the children. Eliminate the nutritional deficiency in the mother and the disease does not show up in the children. Sometimes if a person born with the disease is given the nutrient, the disease disappears or becomes more manageable. Such is the case with sickle cell anemia, another congenital defect falsely thought to be genetically transmitted.
In Diseases of Exotic Animals, Wallach explained the research associating selenium deficiency with a form of cystic fibrosis that occurred in white tail deer. The disease in deer was completely eliminated by ensuring that the deer consumed adequate amounts of selenium.
Phil Oliver of the Sickle-cell Foundation of Georgia read Dr. Wallach’s book on exotic animals and contacted him in 1991. Wallach then established a treatment regimen for 25 children with the disease that ensured each received his 90 essential nutrient regimen along with added selenium, and all were put on a gluten free diet. All 25 children were rendered in clinically stable by the regimen, enabling the diseases to be managed survivably.
As Wallach sees it, the world of medical research has misinterpreted disease states caused by environmental factors to be ones that arise from defects in the DNA sequence involving changes in nucleotides. Wallach regards the genetic theory of disease as a cop-out, whereby diseases the cure of which have eluded conventional practitioners are attributed, for want of better science and logic, to defective DNA.
