Dr. Joel Wallach shared alternative health approaches, and the benefits of natural remedies and supplements that aid in the body's recovery from many diseases and ailments, without the use of dangerous and expensive pharmaceuticals. Type 2 diabetes can be diagnosed by patients themselves using blood test strips, which are available at pharmacies without a prescription, he cited. Wallach contends that diabetes is related to a deficiency of certain minerals.
Interestingly, he suggested that the root cause of obesity is also due to a lack of certain nutrients. For weight loss, he suggested taking the '90 Essential Nutrients,' as well eating a gluten-free diet and avoiding oils, fried foods, and processed meats. For a caller with ED, he recommended eating as many as 10 eggs a day, which can build up testosterone.
One listener asked if he could get by on just 3-4 hours of sleep a night. Wallach noted that one of the purposes of sleep is to repair the body from the previous day's activity, and because of the nutrient supplements he takes, he needs less time for such repairs, and does well on just 4 hours of sleep, and has more time for waking activities.
