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. Anything you can do to reduce stress improves the functioning of the immune system, he noted, and this includes meditation and avoiding foods that block nutritive absorption in the digestive system such as gluten. In response to a question about the heart condition known as atrial fibrillation, he suggested it is caused by a nerve issue in the spinal cord which can by alleviated by supplements such as Vitamin D3 and MSM.
Like humans, pets can get cataracts which are brought on by free radical damage and inflammation to the delicate protein in the lens of the eye, he stated. Pet owners, he continued, should avoid feeding their animals table scraps (particularly dishes made with heated up oils) and dried food. Speaking about dialysis, Wallach remarked that often it's not the kidney that's the problem but rather arteries that are blocked.
