Paul Larsen. Paul suffered a severe heart attack and had triple by-pass surgery with several grafts. A short time thereafter, he had several stints implanted. “I was told I had a limited life expectancy,” he recalls. In addition to his cardiovascular health problems, Paul suffered from sleep apnea, Bells Palsy, a detached retina with floaters in both eyes, Type II diabetes, peripheral neuropathy, vertigo, depression, insomnia, high and low blood pressure, back pain, nervousness, panic attacks, prolonged clotting time, cravings, anxiety, elevated cholesterol and triglycerides, fainting, fatigue, night sweats, weight issues, digestive issues, stomach and intestinal pain, tinnitus, and eczema. He was prescribed some twenty-two to twenty-eight medications a day that he was required to take for survival, costing him about $2,385 per month, excluding monthly charges for diabetes medication, lancets, and strips. After a move to Salt Lake City, Paul found that he had to be admitted to the emergency room some six times over the course of a few months because of severe angina pain. Each time he was admitted for a few days and given morphine. Paul had had it. He explains:
After several such visits lying in my hospital bed the head doctor of the cardio unit came to me to see how I was doing. I asked, “What can you do for me?” “I’m not interested in becoming addicted to morphine. Fix me please.” After a long silence, the doctor told me, “I am sorry. There is nothing we can do for you, except try to manage the angina pain when it comes.”
Paul was fed up with the routine and lack of help. He told the doctor, “disconnect me from the monitors and release me. I am going home.”

We depend upon evidence of conquest over disease to judge the abilities of physicians. By that measure, Dr. Wallach has been enormously successful. The following is a small subset of those whose health has been dramatically improved by Dr. Wallach’s nutritional recommendations.
Marisa Magistro. Since childhood, Marisa suffered from panic attacks. In her mid-20’s Marisa was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease, an autoimmune thyroid condition. She was prescribed Armour Thyroid. The alterations in her thyroid function caused her to experience intense cravings for sweet and salty foods and resulting weight gain. She also developed large painful fatty deposits in her wrists, diagnosed as ganglion cysts. Marisa’s sister introduced her to Dr. Wallach and his nutrition recommendations. She followed those recommendations and experienced an amelioration of her symptoms. “3 years on I am still seeing improvements,” explains Marisa. “I’ve lost a total of 55 pounds. I have better focus and am not suffering from my crippling panic attacks anymore. I don’t have cravings and can make better food choices. My Hashimoto’s Disease is gone as well as my ganglion cysts.”
Michael Magistro. In 2009, Michael suffered from severe abdominal pain and digestive health issues. He also suffered from lactose intolerance. Michael discovered Dr. Wallach and followed his nutritional recommendations. Within a short period of time, his symptoms began to subside. Now, two years following the start of his change in diet and his reliance on nutrition, Michael reports “because of this nutrition my body has been brought back into balance” and his health has been restored.
