Dr. Joel Wallach addressed alternative health approaches, and the benefits of remedies and supplements that aid in the body's recovery from many diseases and ailments. Regarding contaminants in the soil, which are common in mining areas, certain supplements are good counteractants, such as selenium for mercury, and calcium for lead, he cited. He characterized the neurodegenerative disease Parkinson's, as a deficiency of the white matter of the brain, and in addition to taking various CriticalHealth supplements like the Healthy Brain & Heart Pak, he recommended eating lots of eggs, butter, and cheese.
Speaking of the mysterious deaths of naturopathic or alternative doctors, Wallach speculated that the ones who were found shot, may have been writing prescriptions for medical marijuana and interfering with the illegal drug trade. For low thyroid, he suggested avoiding cruciferous vegetables because they can interfere with thyroid function. Plain gelatin, he added, is high in collagen which is helpful for maintenance and repair of bones, cartilage, and vertebrae.
