Doctor responds to columnist's charge of quackery


Last week, Dr. Don Casebolt wrote a column that decried my work as quackery.

His arrogant attitude, being part of a protected monopoly, permeates America’s thinking.

Casebolt should look in the mirror and ask himself, “How many people did I kill during my career?”

On Tuesday, Fox News Service reported the results of a Johns Hopkins study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that revealed that: “Each year in America, medical doctors make 190,000 diagnostic mistakes in their private practices resulting in the deaths or serious injuries of 150,000 patients.”

In his column, Casebolt is fixated on my 1993 “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie” audio cassette, which noted that based on 200 JAMA obituaries, American medical doctor’s average age was 58 years, however, he fails to note that a follow-up study published in numerous medical journals by medical doctors, noted “the average age of medical doctors in America was 56 years.

Casebolt questions that I have done 3,000 autopsies in humans because, “(Wallach) is a veterinary doctor and a naturopath.”

Again Casebolt’s attitude is that only medical doctors have the right to pursue the truth. As a graduate student in comparative pathology at the University of Missouri while still a veterinary student, I participated in more than 200 human autopsies and thousands of animal autopsies.

In one study through The Center for the Biology of Natural Systems (funded by the National Institutes of Health), I as a postdoctoral fellow did more than 20,000 autopsies — 17,500 in more than 454 species of zoo animals and 3,000 humans under the watchful eye of Dr. Malcom Peterson, the pathologist for Barnes Hospital, School of Medicine, Washington University.

The results were published in the book “The Diseases of Exotic Animals,” a 1,200-page reference book that is in the Smithsonian Institution as a National Treasure.

In another study I did 1,700 autopsies on human children under the age of 10 years in Keshan province, China.

“Keshan Disease”is a simple deficiency disease of the trace mineral selenium resulting in death by hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (sudden heart death). The purpose of the study was to see if any of these children were also afflicted with cystic fibrosis, a disease long thought by the medical system to be genetic.

I discovered the first nonhuman case of cystic fibrosis in primates in 1977 at the Yerkes Primate Research Center at Emory University in Atlanta. I was fired summarily after Emory University had proudly announced the discovery (confirmed by experts in CF pathology) without being allowed to defend my findings, which were confirmed by pancreas and liver biopsies in same-aged cage-mates.

My crime was that I stated that the evidence showed clearly that cystic fibrosis was a disease of nutritional deficiency of the trace mineral selenium in the embryo or suckling infant

The Keshan study demonstrated that 35 percent of those children dying of Keshan Disease (a known selenium deficiency disease) had pancreatic and liver lesions consistent with cystic fibrosis.

Casebolt also dissed my reference to U.S. Senate Document 264, which was an agricultural report entered into the congressional record and did not represent “that it is official, that it represents government approval or that it represents good scientific studies.”

Medical doctors have little or no training in nutrition, while I am a graduate of the School of Agriculture from the University of Missouri and majored in animal husbandry and nutrition.

In 2012, the journal Food Chemistry, a respected research journal that looks at the nutritional levels and pollution loads in samples of American food crops reported “well known baby foods and infant formulas may contain less than 20 percent of the required minerals and micronutrients (vitamins) required by infants.”

Dog food, laboratory rat pellets and livestock feed, by comparison, contains 100 percent of the animals nutritional needs.

I received the 2011 Klaus Schwarz Commemorative Medal, an international award previously only awarded to medical doctors and Ph.D.s. According to the awards committee for the Biological Trace Element Research Institute, “From a historical perspective, Wallach is to be regarded as one of the first practitioners, if not founders, of epigenetics, the new research discipline that investigates heritable alterations in gene expression caused by mechanisms other than changes in DNA sequence.”

I have cured, in one week, a case of dementia/Alzheimer’s disease that was diagnosed by a primary care physician and confirmed by neurological specialty clinics and the head of the department of neurology in the Medical School of North Carolina.

Ray McGregor had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease eight years before his sister called me and asked for help (Ray was terminal at that point and being prepared for hospice).

I always treat all multiple forms of dementia diagnosis simultaneously as 65 percent of the time the doctors get the wrong diagnosis — in this case McGregor was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, but he was afflicted with Korsikoff’s disease — a disease of a single vitamin deficiency first diagnosed and solved in the 1700s by a Japanese navy surgeon.

Because mega doses of thiamine were included in the treatment McGregor was cured in a week — if he had been treated only with Alzheimer’s drug programs he would have died of “the complications of Alzheimer’s.

Casebolt proudly touts the Quackwatch article on me that disses my statements that wrinkles and gray hair are caused by a copper deficiency. It is well documented that copper is a required nutrient and cofactor necessary for the healthy production of red blood cells, thyroid hormones, skin and hair color, production and maintenance of healthy elastic fibers, etc.

Many common diseases are caused by a copper deficiency — anemia, loss of skin and hair color (vitiligo), spider veins, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, aneurysms, wrinkled skin, tendinitis, etc.

Quackwatch is a private group originally established by four arrogant medical doctors for the purposes of preventing chiropractors and naturopathic physicians from competing with medical doctors.

Casebolt further states, “it appears he (Wallach) did not come to Walla Walla for his health but because he has products to sell.”

In fact I give 300 to 400 free lectures on health each year, have been doing two hours of interactive radio on health Monday through Friday for 18 years. I receive no moneys from the sale of any of the nutritional products — my sole purpose is to educate Americans to be able to prevent and eliminate diseases in humans through nutrition that the medical community believes, falsely, are genetically transmitted.

Casebolt states, “Someone needs to ask him to provide the references from respected scientific journals that show the benefits of colloidal mineral water.”

I have had 75 peer-reviewed and refereed journal articles published on the deficiencies of these nutrients, have been the co-author of no less than four multi-author textbooks on trace minerals and rare earths and another book that is the final word and the ultimate collection of references on colloidal minerals and the diseases that result from their deficiencies.

Lastly, Casebolt states that “One of those companies (that sells colloidal minerals) is reportedly grossing $3 million per month. This makes it sound like plenty of people are buying in to the propaganda these companies publish. There have been reported adverse effects from using those waters.”

I would respond that testing by Clemson University’s Institute forNutraceutical Research has shown that when administered to healthy human cell lines, adverse effects weren’t noted, and benefits were seen.

I continue to fight for the American people and their right to have choices in health care by educating Americans for free that they do have economical, safe and effective treatment alternatives to dangerous, expensive and ineffective medical treatments. Further, I advocate for eliminating the protected medical monopoly. The age-old tool of witch hunts used by the medical system must end.
