Wallach’s War on Conventional Medicine
Wallach’s research establishes that omega-3 fatty acids are anti-thrombotic, anti-coagulant, and anti-arrhythmic agents that improve circulation and heart health. He knows that daily ingestion of omega-3 fatty acids will reduce the risk of a heart attack and stroke by as much as forty percent. He also knows that drugs like heparin, warfarin, and Coumadin imperil the lives of patients in need of therapies to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke because they can cause bleeding to proceed uncontrollably and cause damage to organs and organ systems.
Wallach’s research establishes that a combination of calcium, strontium, boron, magnesium, and several other minerals and trace minerals are the most effective means to prevent or lessen the progression of osteoporosis. He is appalled by the conventional medical community’s reliance on bisphosphonate drugs as the first line of treatment for those conditions. The bisphosphonates cause bone mineralization to occur on the surface of the bone but do not build the bone matrix. Over time, these drugs make bones brittle, precisely the condition they are supposed to prevent. Rather than reduce the risk of fracture, over time these drugs increase the risk of fracture.
Wallach’s research establishes that cholesterol performs critical metabolic functions in the body, is present in every cell of the body, and without adequate amounts of cholesterol we cannot live. The never ending quest of the National Cholesterol Program to reduce LDL cholesterol to lower and lower levels is fraught with danger. Also, the statin drugs block the endogenous production of not only cholesterol but also an essential co-enzyme for the production of ATP in the body (necessary for energy production by all muscles of the body, including the heart). By doing so, statins increase the risk of myopathy (muscle weakness and degeneration), including cardiomyopathy (heart muscle death). Wallach dismisses the notion that cholesterol is, in and of itself, an appropriate basis for concern, preferring to look at all aspects of cardiovascular function and to rely principally on nutritional interventions and lifestyle modifications to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Wallach’s attacks on the dangers of FDA approved drugs and on conventional medical practice dependent upon those drug regimens have received powerful support of late from an unanticipated quarter, the FDA itself. Beginning with the bombshell announcement by FDA Associate Director of Drug Safety, David Graham, that the public was “virtually defenseless” against FDA’s routine approval of unsafe drugs, and a steady stream of like-minded FDA medical reviewers appearing before Congress condemning corruption with the drug industry and the FDA and the approval over medical reviewers’ objections of a wide range of unsafe drugs, there have been dozens of high profile drug recalls and changes in label warnings, all confirming Wallach’s decades long quest to alert the public to these dangers to be well founded.
Because of Wallach’s firm commitment to the Hippocratic Oath and to non-toxic nutritional interventions proven to alleviate disease, he is regularly attacked by conventional medical practitioners and the industries that support them. Rather than be dissuaded from his mission by the critics, Wallach is emboldened by them and, true to form, takes them on at every turn.
