Treating People Like Pachyderms
In Wallach’s case, the extrapolation from animals to humans occurred first predicated on his investigation of nutritional formulas in the treatment of animal disease, then predicated on his reliance on safe nutritional interventions with his human patients, and then based on responses to nutritional recommendations he has made to the public at large.
Having acquired in depth knowledge of the veterinary and human sides of medical science, Wallach finds the failure of medical science to include veterinary science underpinnings vexing. In Let’s Play Doctor, he writes:
“All ‘orthodox’ doctors should be required to go to veterinary school as a pre-med course . . .”
The body of evidence Dr. Wallach has acquired over the years confirms the wisdom of his approach. He not only finds parallels between animal and human diseases at every turn, he also finds that what works well in animals oftentimes works well in humans. The sources and kinds of ingredients he uses in his formulations for animals and humans are all food grade and safe at the dose levels recommended.
Among the many innovations in nutrition science that Dr. Wallach pioneered is the liquid suspension of minerals and trace minerals. He has succeeded in creating formulations that not only contain the right forms of ingredients but also the easiest means for delivery, most often in a liquid.
Individuals who have trouble taking pills appreciate this right away but also those who for one reason or another have not experienced benefits from powders and traditional pills.
The body works on the basis of homeostasis, meaning that at the cellular level quantitative amounts of nutrients from foods that are needed are absorbed and excess amounts are discarded, either being eliminated from the body through excretion or stored by the body in fat. The trouble comes when either nutrients are in a form that prevents their absorption, are affected by other foods that provoke reactions (i.e., gluten, etc.) that diminish absorption, or are in a form where absorption is compromised by such things as low stomach acid long before they are available for absorption in the intestines.
