My doctor said that my cartilage, I’m a construction worker, he said that my cartilage damage is permanent. Is there
anything that can be done?
A:First of all, how old are you? 28 years old. And what do you normally take for fluid replacement when you’re working out in construction? What do you drink during the day? Water. You don’t drink any soft drinks? Yes I do. Okay, because normally construction workers drink a couple of litres of Pepsi a day, right? Yeah, I could probably put down a litre. And the reason why I ask that, is because caffeine from soft drinks, the phosphates in soft drinks, the sugar in soft drinks, the caffeine in iced tea, hot tea, coffee, will, in fact, interfere with the retention of minerals in your bones. And did you take any minerals or vitamins while you were working in constructions? I just recently started taking the products. While you were in construction, prior to the back problems. A lot of construction workers will tell me, “well, Doc, if it ain’t in the Pepsi, I don’t get it”. Right? And so you’re a perfect candidate for the Pig Arthritis formula, plus the EFA. You need all 90 nutrients, and give up the bad things. Give up the soft drinks and the iced tea, and the lemonades, give up the fried foods and the margarines, and I can just tell you, with your age, you can honestly expect to see really recognizable results in a very short time, 60 to 90 days. And it doesn’t matter what the doctor said, if you do the right things, get rid of the bad things, take all 90 essential nutrients, making sure you get that collagen and glucosamine and the chondroitin sulfate, you will repair your vertebrae, you will repair the cartilage, you will repair the disc.
Well, my favorite disease is Arthritis.
The reason why I love Arthritis is that it’s easy to fix.
And when you can fix something as horrible and debilitating and
painful and expensive and as miserable as Arthritis, you get kind of
excited about this concept of preventing and curing disease with
nutrition. And so I tell
people about this arthritis thing all the time.
So let’s have a quick look at arthritis.
Number one, 75-80% of all Americans over the age of
50 get arthritis to one degree or one type or another, and according to
the CDC, the Center for Disease Control, 35 to 50 million baby-boomers are
going to get arthritis in the next 7 to 10 years and there’s not a
single medical treatment designed to treat or fix it.
Aspirin certainly doesn’t fix arthritis, it causes gastric
bleeding and death. Tylenol
doesn’t fix arthritis, there’s 50,000 cases of kidney failure each
year, 5000 so severe you need a kidney transplant.
Then there’s Ibuprofen, Advil, and Aleve, these things don’t
fix arthritis, and they cause liver disease in 2-5% of users including
liver sclerosis, even if you don’t drink.
And then there’s metholtrexate(?) and gold shots(?).
These things don’t fix arthritis, they subdue your bone marrow so
that you can’t make normal platelets and white blood cells.
Then you have the granddaddy of all medical treatments for
arthritis, Prednizone and Cortisone.
They don’t fix arthritis. They
subdue your immune system which leaves you open to diseases far, far more
horrible than arthritis, and Prednizone and Cortisone accelerates the loss
of minerals from your bone. Something
you don’t want when you have osteoporosis and arthritis.
When these prescription medications and
over-the-counter medications don’t work anymore to relieve pain and
inflammation, the only thing left for you medically is joint-replacement
surgery. And I never liked to
send my patients in for joint-replacement surgery, cause they never work
out well. In fact, many times
you are worse off after the surgery than you were before the surgery.
The advantage my patients have always had is that
I’m a veterinarian as well as a physician.
So I always used to tell my patients “Look, we have all these
nutritional formulas designed to prevent and cure disease in animals,
including arthritis, and so I tried adapting nutritional arthritis
formulas designed to prevent and cure arthritis in pigeons and turkeys,
dogs and cats, sheep, pigs, horses, cows, lions, tigers and bears to human
use. It was no surprise to
me, it works just as well in humans as it does in animals, because it was
designed to prevent and cure arthritis in pigs.
And of course it has some really nifty stuff in it, which I have
been telling people to use for 20 years, and I have literally seen
tens of thousands of people who have had a regrowth of cartilage,
ligaments, tendons, connective tissue, bone foundation, bone matrix.
Doesn’t matter if they are 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, I’ve
seen people 97 years old regrow cartilage and bone, even if they had bone
to bone arthritis. If
there’s blood supply to that joint and that bone, they will regrow bone
Well, Harvard Medical School goes berserk when you say
stuff like that. “Wallach,
you can’t say those things! And
the only thing left when they get bone to bone arthritis is
joint-replacement surgery.” And
I would agree with him if the only raw materials you are using is Tylenol
and aspirin and Prednizone and Cortisone.
We have learned over 50 years that you can’t regrow cartilage and
bones using those things.
Now one of the basic
things, of course, that the Harvard Medical School jumped on and
said “this is so ridiculous that this couldn’t work!”
And so they took 29 arthritis patients who had not responded in any
way to heroic medical treatment for arthritis over 15 to 20 years.
They took them off their medication, it wasn’t working anyway,
lined them up for joint-replacement surgery, and for 90 days before their
surgery they gave them heaping tablespoon of ground up chicken
cartilage in their orange juice every morning for 90 days.
They were sort of chuckling in their beer saying “nothing is
going to happen”. Well,
here’s what happened. In 10
days these people had complete relief of pain inflammation that they
hadn’t had in 15 to 20 years. In
30 days they could open up a new pickle jar that had never been opened
without pain to the fingers, wrists, elbows and shoulders.
In 90 days 28 of the 29 were clinically cured.
Now this is from the Harvard Medical School and the Boston VA.
That meant that they had complete return, 100% return, of the range
of motion, all of the pain and inflammation was gone, in their fingers and
toes and hips and knees and neck, and certainly many of them still had
knots on their fingers, cause it was only 90 days, and you would think
they would call me up, these professors from Harvard Medical School and
from the Boston VA, and say “Look, Wallach, we have to apologize to you.
We’ve been bad-mouthing you for 20 years and why don’t you come
up to Boston, let’s talk about the whole thing?”
Here’s what they said, “After 3 months it was clear that the
drug was beneficial.”
Chicken cartilage had become a drug in 90
days! Now why would that
happen? Well, because you
can’t patten chicken cartilage, and they convinced the US Patten Office
that they were using a drug to do this study, and they actually got a
use-patten on chicken cartilage. And
you, too, for $3500 a month, can get Harvard Medical School’s chicken
cartilage in a capsule for arthritis.
(You can get it for 30 cents a day… ha, ha).
That’s kind of interesting.
And of course, cartilage
or gelatine, has chondroitin sulfate in it, glucosamine
sulfate, collagen, these are all the basic raw materials to rebuild
cartilage and bone. Now again
I have been telling my human patients this for 20 years.
They’ve been using gelatine and cartilage for race horses for 100
years for their cartilage and ligaments and joints.
And in 1995, a Luke Bucci, an exercise physiologist came out with a
great book called “Pain Free”, and he talks about the advantages of
gelatine and cartilage and glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate and
collagen for regrowing cartilage, ligaments, tendons, connective
tissue, bone foundation, bone matrix, he does this with nutrition.
He does this with glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate
and collagen and cartilage and gelatine.
Just a couple of months ago, a medical doctor, Dr. Jason
Theodisakus, MD, wrote the “Arthritis Cure”, subtitle “the medical
miracle that can halt, reverse and may even can cure osteoarthritis.”
Lastly, is low back pain. 85% of Americans get low back pain whether you work on a computer or you unload hay, or you drive big trucks, doesn't matter. Low back is a big problem. Low back is just Osteoporosis of the vertebrae whether you have a disc problem or whatnot, because if your disc doesn't have anything to hold on to, your vertebrae is melted away, what's going to happen to the disc? Especially if you have a copper deficiency, cause they're made out of elastic fibers, they go. Like a water balloon with a lot of pressure on them. Well, I just want you to look at this quickly before we do the last mineral. Low back, you go an orthopedic surgeon or a rheumatologist you might get a muscle relaxant. You might get valium and a muscle relaxant. You get a lamanectomy, you get your vertebrae fused, you might get a disc operation. They don't tell you that 75% of the time you'll never be the same again.
PMS, you go to your OB-GYN, you can go to an Internist, you can go to a Family Counselor, or a shrink, or a divorce attorney. Cramps and twitches, you go to a neurologist, you go to a sports medicine doctor, an Internist. Bone spurs, heel spurs, calcium deposits you go to a Rheumatologist, an Orthopedic Surgeon, or a Podiatrist. Kidney stones you go to a Urologist, an Internist, or a surgeon. Insomnia you go to a shrink or a sleep clinic or an Internist. Hypertension, you go to a Cardiologist, and Internist, or a surgeon. Arthritis, a Rheumatologist, an Orthopedic surgeon, an Internist. Receding gums, you go to a dentist or periodontist. Osteoporosis you go to all those health specialists, including a Tums salesman.
For nothing more than a calcium deficiency!
It costs you ten cents a day to deal with. Now, on the average, because
Americans have insurance, and we have Medicare/Medicaid, we spend on the
average $25,000 to $250,000, and we undergo five to ten surgical
procedures a year for a calcium deficiency! And we beg the doctors to do
it! It's our choice.
Has nothing to do with disk
problems. I know you have
heard of people, maybe even yourself who have had disk surgery for back
pain, and after the surgery still had the pain, maybe even worse. Because back pain is not caused by disk problems.
If you have a disk problem, you can have numbness and tingling,
maybe even paralysis if it’s very severe, but disk problems do not cause
pain. If you have low back
pain, the odds are you have cramps and spasms in the large muscle group,
inside and outside your lower back. These
can sublexate(?), or hit the line in your vertebrae and be uncomfortable,
cause a lot of pain. You also
have bone spurs, calcium deposits, arthritis, osteoporosis.
These are the things that cause low back pain.
Now you’re educated, you’re never going to say “Doc, you’re
the doctor”, because you’ve gone through this lecture tonight, and
unfortunately most Americans have not heard this lecture yet, and as a
result, they will spend between $25,000 and $250,000 and voluntarily
undergo 5 to 10 surgical procedures for nothing more than the top ten calcium
In any other industry that would be fraud and they would be shut
down. Something you can fix
for 25 cents and you walk out with a $5,000 bill, you would be ticked off.
You would want to talk to the manager.
You would want your money back.
You would call the Better Business Bureau.
You would call the State Attorney General.
You’d complain. Class
action suit. It would be a big mess.
But the medical profession, everybody just runs to the government
and says we need more money to pay for it.
Kind of fascinating.
In a tin deficiency, the early symptoms are male pattern baldness. (I
see a lot of tin deficiency in this room), and if you let it go on for any
length of time, you get deafness.

Then there is hypertension. This is one of my favorites, so I'll put a star over here. Hypertension is high blood pressure. What's the first nutritional thing your doctor will tell you to give up when you get high blood pressure? Salt. Everybody knows that one, it has been ingrained in our heads. Well, they must think we are dumber than cows, because what is the first thing you put out for your cows, and it's about that big? A salt block. No farmer is going to be economically viable if you don't put a salt block out for your livestock. They're going to die. They're going to get their veterinary bill and they are going to go crazy. Now we're supposed to believe that we don't need salt, that we can get everything we need out of your lettuce and your whole wheat bread, and stuff like that. Well don't believe that one either. If you believe that, I've got some more ocean front property in Montana. Remember, those long-lived people put a big chunk of rock salt the size of a big black Concorde grape in every cup of tea, and they drink about 40 cups of tea a day cause they live at high altitudes where it is very dry, and they have to keep hydrated. And they put butter in their tea. They put two pats of butter and chunks of rock salt. They don't put the pink stuff or the blue stuff, or skim milk, or Creamora, or whatever it is. Guess what? The doctors who lived to be 58 tell you, "No salt, no butter". The people who live to be 120, they put in butter and salt. You have got to make some choices.
They took 30 million dollars of your tax money, and two years ago, after a 20 year study, they came out and said that they took 5,000 people with high blood pressure. They took them off their medication, and put them on a reduced salt diet, a restricted salt diet, and they all died. No big surprise. But somebody got a PH.D. degree and everybody was happy, right? But when they looked at this result, they said, "Oh, only 99.7% of the people didn't get any results from that before they died. 0.3% did get some results, dropped their blood pressure 1 point before they died, by restricting their salt." So the referees said, "Oh, doesn't matter. You might as well let high blood pressure patients eat salted peanuts, and dill pickles, and salt to their food to taste, cause it doesn't matter. In fact, worrying about the salt is more stress than taking the salt.
Then they had a controlled group with 5,000 people with high blood pressure and they doubled their RDA of calcium and they stopped their experiment in 6 weeks. Cause 85% of them were cured of their high blood pressure, just by doubling their calcium intake.
Now they didn't, cold turkey, stop their high blood pressure medication, what they did was, they went to the doctor and he said, "You don't need this medication anymore. What are you doing?"
"Well, I'm on this experiment where I double my calcium intake."
Anybody get a recall notice from your doctor saying it's okay to salt
your food to taste, and please do double your calcium intake? Anybody get
that? Not a single one. It's very interesting.
And if you have low blood sugar. How many have every seen a hyperactive kid who gets on sugar? People who have sugar problems are like alcoholics, there is good ones and bad ones. The good alcoholics are one that when they get a few drinks they just go off in the corner and just go to sleep. Same way with somebody with low blood sugar, they eat a big meal or eat a piece of pie, then 3 hours later they conk out and go to sleep.
Then there's bad alcoholics, they are the ones that get two drinks in them and they violent and rage and want to fight everybody, punch holes in the wall, big brave fellows, and they kick their wife, and kick the dog, and take the chain saw and cut their neighbor's tree down, and all these wild things, and drive reckless down the roads and kill people. Those are the bad drunks. Well people who have blood sugar problems have bad blood sugar people too. They get a little crazy.
I don't know how many remember the Twinkie defense? Somebody murdered
two people, and he claimed he ate a Twinkie 3 hours before he murdered
them, so they let him off because he got temporarily insane every time he
ate sugar. Now don't any of you try that! Well chromium and vanadium
deficiency will result in the sugar problems. Low blood sugar, and if you
let it go on for any length of time you develop diabetes. Chromium and
Does the same apply to bone

Then, of course, there's kidney stones. And then
there's bone spurs, heel spurs, and calcium deposits. Again, physicians
will tell you the first thing to give up officially is calcium and dairy,
because they have this foolish belief, the stupid belief, the ignorant
belief that the kidney stones, bone spurs, heel spurs, and calcium
deposits come from your diet, when instead it only comes from your bones
when you have a raging Osteoporosis. And when you get these things, you
need more calcium, not less.
The University of Arizona Medical School
took 1300 people, put them on 250-500mcg Selenium, and for
10 years they looked at them for skin cancer.
And it didn’t help skin cancer, we know that, because Selenium
doesn’t work for skin cancer. Zinc,
and Beta Carotene and Vitamin E works for skin cancer.
What they found out serendipitously, they weren’t expecting
this, it just sort of popped out of the study, they were able to reduce esophageal
cancer by 71%, they were able to reduce prostate cancer
by 69% fellows, better than two thirds, they were able to reduce colon
and rectal cancer by 64%, almost two thirds, they were able to
reduce lung cancer, whether you smoked or not, by 48%, and
ladies, in a parallel study from the University of California by the great
Dr. Gerhardt Schrauser, he said you can reduce your risk of breast
cancer, depending on the type of breast cancer, by 50-85%, by
taking 250 to 500 mcg (of Selenium)
is one of those descriptive diagnosis that "orthodox" psychiatry issues. We would estimate that as many as 90% of the non-drug dependent patients are totally "curable" at home with home testing and home remedies. Food allergies, environmental sensitivities, hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia are the major considerations.
Testing for allergies can be accomplished using the pulse test and/or the diet diary and rotation elimination diet; the environmental sensitivities can be identified by the pulse test and avoidance/challenge tests; hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia require a six-hour GGT (be sure to record the emotions and behavior of the patient during the entire six hours - the numbers alone are not revealing in of themselves).
Foods that are common offenders are cow's milk, corn wheat, soy, rye and sugar; environmental culprits include house dust, perfume, formaldehyde and makeup; on the glucose tolerance test the mania and/or depression may occur on the ascending or the descending arms of the curve so someone must stay with the patients and record emotions and events!
Treatment of bipolar disorder requries a considerable effort on the part of the "doctor" and "nurse" because a positive turn around may take some weeks with temporary relapses.
Treatment should include chromium and vanadium at 500 mcg 4 times a day; autoimmune urine therapy for five to eight treatments; rotation or avoidance of offending foods, avoidance of sugar, caffeine, environmental allergens; essential fatty acids at 5 gm three times a day; niacin (B-3) 450 mg four times a day in time release tablets; B-1, B-5, B-6 each at 100 mg twice a day; DL-phenylalanine at 5 gms twice a day and choline at 250 mg twice a day. Plant-derived colloidal minerals that contain lithium may be useful.
