Dr. Joel Wallach shared alternative health approaches and suggestions for remedies and supplements. In this episode, in addition to human health, he offered advice for people's pets. It's important to get the right type of dog or cat food appropriate to the animal's size, and grain-free is typically best, he cited. People tend to pay more attention to the diet of small dogs, he continued, but larger animals need the same percentage of supplementation, based on their weight. He recommended sprinkling a nutritional supplement called ArthryDex over any pet's food, as this is particularly good for bone and joint support.
In regards to the human diet, Wallach argued that people who consume higher fat foods like whole milk and yogurt live significantly longer than those who eat low-fat foods. Speaking of infant formula, he said that many of the products were deficient in a full spectrum of essential vitamins and nutrients.
