Nutritional Research Pioneer, Author, and Radio Talk Show Host,
Joel Wallach, BS, DVM, ND

Dr. Wallach has spent his life studying the effects of individual nutrients on disease and bringing that message to the general public. Thanks largely in part to his efforts, the public is now aware of the effects of essential fatty acids on heart disease, folic acid on neural tube defects, and selenium on cancer and other diseases. His forward-thinking ideas form the basis of his famous lecture, Dead Doctors Don’t Lie. With more than 150 million copies distributed, the most widely distributed health lecture in history.

With years of research and thousands of autopsy’s on humans and animals Dr. Wallach has identified the following 90 nutrients as being essential to human survival.

None of these ninety nutrients are optional… they are essential for two basic reasons:
(1) The body cannot produce them. They must be consumed and
(2) a deficiency in any one of these nutrients will impact our health and can be directly linked to a disease. 

These are the ninety essential nutrients that are are required for optimum health and longevity.

    Can yiu please show a list with the missing ones?
    Thank you

  3. Thank you Dr. Wallach & staff for answering the question. There is nothing more important than one’s health. It does seem that your products have covered and resolved these issues. It just seems people just don’t take the time to zero in on them. What good is money, security and family if one allows his/her health to fall out before it’s time. I’ll noticed that the foods we consume all are about resales and don’t really focus on our over all health.

  4. dr wallach,

    thanks for your youtube videos. I have learned a lot from you. your peripheral neourapathy formula will me very helpful if it is written down somewhere because you speak very fast and I need that information to order the correct suppliments. I have watched all your videos many times.
    Please, please email me exactly what I need and the directions when and how much to take. I am 150 lbs at 5’6″and 59 years old. I have no other ailments other than the stroke I suffered last year sept.,2018.

    Thank you very much,

  5. Hi there. Please would you advise me where I may find the research papers demonstrating the essentiality of the many trace minerals for mammals or humans that Dr. Wallch proposes please? There is more than enough evidence for boron and chromium and perhaps vanadium and others… However what about the many other ones please? In many ways i think you are totally out there and cutting edge Dr. Wallach and I am willing to believe or suspend disblief with what you state just because I trust your passion, your extensive qualification and experience. However, there are some statements you make that are totally incorrect. Such as the statement that Anorexia and Bulaemia are caused by Coeliac Disease. I don`t believe you can afford to make such inaccurate statements if you wish to gain the credibility I believe you deserve Dr. Wallach. Yes. Coeliac disease is more common in those with eating disorders but it is by no means all. No-where near. And yes, I`m sure some have non-ceoliac gluten sensitivity too.

    I assume the statements you make about trace minerals are based on your studies of mammals Dr. Wallach…Is that correct? Or are they based on your studies of the longevity cultures who just so happen to have a large amount of those minerals in their diet? There must have been studies on animals looking at health and longevity with and without each of the minerals you state are essential… Am I correct please? Where are these studies please? Thank you for your time and great work Dr. Wallach.

  6. Dr Wallach,
    I see some of the products you recommend have sugar such as Maltodextrin. Your speech at the New Life expo you emphasized no sugar. How about Stevia ? Thanks

  7. This question is for Dr. Wallach. After listening to to every word, watching his every video and reaging all his materials, I can not find the answer to my one and very important question. If he personally could answer my email or have his son answer me or whoever gets this message answers my question-then I would be forever grateful. My email is: and my name is Mario W. Watkins, Owner & President of Watkins Global Network, LLC located here in the State of Ohio. (614) 351-7420.

    Here is my question that keeps my up at night. (When a person takes any of the products sold by Youngevity does one need to change his/her foods habits or should one eat at all?

    Thank you for allowing me to ask.
