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.

Years of Autopsy, Research, and Scholarship
Because Wallach is the quintessential example of a medical innovator whose inquisitive mind yields discovery after discovery, he is like fissile material in an academic environment. Academics who depend on slow progress find Wallach’s rapid progress unsettling and unwelcome. It is therefore that orthodox nutrition science has taken decades to adopt several of the theories Wallach has been publicly articulating since the 1970’s.
When a patient suffers an illness that medical science does not recognize or cannot treat, physicians necessarily depend on a forensic approach of credible hypotheses and innovative treatments. Wallach’s career with animals and people caused him to confront thousands of such cases and to devise innovative means for care that were beyond those known in medical science. He did so methodically and logically, carefully diagnosing ailments by reference to all available environmental information concerning the patient. In this way, Wallach is among the world’s best diagnosticians.
Repeatedly Wallach has found that nutritional interventions, and, in particular, provision of minerals to apparently mineral deficient patients, yielded positive results. As he dug deeper, he discovered why that was the case, and yet general scientific publication concerning these effects lags years, even decades, behind Dr. Wallach.
In recent years, science has slowly been catching up. Increasingly nutrition scientists in the universities are coming to understand that minerals like boron and strontium in addition to calcium play critical roles in maintaining bone health. They are coming to appreciate the multi-faceted anti-carcinogenic properties of selenium. They are coming to understand that trace minerals are used in metabolic processes and their absence can cause malfunctions in those processes. But still, conventional medicine and science have a long way to go before they catch up with Dr. Wallach.
