The Naturopathic Way
Over the years, he amassed an enormous amount of popular and peer reviewed publication support for his positions, later articulated in his best-selling lecture and book, Dead Doctors Don’t Lie. He found that physicians commonly died at ages younger (58) than the general population (75) and that large numbers of people died in hospital following the use of drugs prescribed in accordance with physician labeling instructions.
The drug model of medicine depends on use of inherently toxic substances, xenobiotic patented substances that often obstruct normal, and essential, metabolic processes to mask disease symptoms. But for a few notable achievements (hospital sanitation, antibiotics, and certain medical devices), wave after wave of new drugs entering the market each year have not changed health outcomes for most chronic disease states, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, liver disease, kidney disease, and cancer. Instead, modern medicine, when better than placebo, masks disease symptoms but does not alter ultimate disease progression or cure disease.
Year after year, the FDA would approve new drugs as “breakthroughs” that were not breakthroughs after all, as FDA’s own Associate Director of the Office of Drug Safety, David Graham, said in testimony before Senator Charles Grassley’s Finance Committee. Other FDA whistleblowers, disgusted with a corrupt system that approved even unsafe drugs, despite FDA medical reviewers’ contrary recommendations, formed a steady stream of brave witnesses in congressional hearings. Yet the political pull of the drug industry on Capitol Hill and at the FDA proved too much. Nothing has changed to stop unsafe drugs from being approved and marketed. The broken system remains broken without a single piece of corrective legislation being passed due to the lobbying power of the drug industry.
Wallach’s experience taught him that nutritional interventions could halt or reverse chronic disease states, and his political education taught him that the truth of that proposition would continue to be locked out of the medical marketplace by the drug industry through its proxies, the FDA and conventional medicine.
