Calvary Temple Assembly of God in conjunction with Youngevity welcomed Dr. Joel Wallach back to Grand Bahama, for the ‘Dead Doctors Don’t Lie’ Seminar.
During a press conference on Thursday (April 12), organizers discussed Dr. Wallach’s role in an upcoming health seminar, which is scheduled for Sunday, April 15 at Calvary Temple beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Youngevity’s Executive Marketing Director, Rochelle Lockhart noted that while the event will begin at 7:00 that evening, registration will start at 6:30 p.m.
“Dr. Wallach was here four years ago for the first time and is making this trip to The Bahamas covering Abaco, Nassau and Grand Bahama,” she explained.
She revealed that studies show that The Bahamas is 22 out of 194 countries in the world of highest number of cases of diabetes. With the increase of cancer, asthma, hypertension, and diabetes it can be said that something is seriously wrong with the foods we are eating.
“It is not only fitting, but it is imperative for us to bring in someone like Dr. Wallach, a renowned biomedical researcher and naturopathic physician known for his unique perspectives on health and wellness. With his extensive knowledge and years of experience in the field,” she said.
Lockhart shared that people in New Providence and Grand Bahama that can testify from their experience with using the 90 essential nutrients that the message and supplements of Dr. Wallach works.
The term, ‘Dead Doctors Don’t Lie,’ came about one night as Dr. Wallach was presenting a public health lecture in Coconut Grove, Florida. Lockhart shared the story behind what has become a trademark battle cry for Dr. Wallach and his message.
She stated that one of the things Dr. Wallach started talking about in his presentations was the average life span of medical doctors. Numerous studies (including The Journal of the American Medical Association itself) have shown and continue to show that medical doctors die on average significantly sooner than most other people.
“One might argue that it’s because of stress, their workload, or a number of different reasons, an argument Dr. Wallach discusses in his book ‘Dead Doctors Don’t Lie’ on page 184. Dr. Wallach claims it’s because doctors receive so little if any training regarding nutrition and what it really takes to be well. They don’t know any different, other than the drugs and surgery model they prescribe for their patients,” She said.
During the question and answer session that night in Florida after one of Dr. Wallach’s presentations an irate attendee asked, “I came here for nutritional information. Just what is the purpose of the doctor obituaries at a nutrition seminar?” In answer to his question, Dr. Wallach blurted out, “because dead doctors don’t lie!”
That night, a slogan, a label was born that struck a nerve. It would become the theme that resonated with the public and represented Dr. Wallach’s frustration for so many years as his discoveries regarding cystic fibrosis, and the importance the 90 essential nutrients played in the health of all living beings were dismissed and ignored by the medical community and those who worshipped them.
Dr. Joel D. Wallach DVM ND, is a biomedical research pioneer, who spent more than 40 years observing and researching the effects of individual nutrients on health. His innovative perspective is derived from his background in veterinary medicine.
In order to keep animal products such as meat and dairy affordable, it is essential to prevent and cure disease. Through extensive medical research, Dr. Wallach was able to pinpoint the cause of many diseases as nutrient deficiencies. By replacing the missing essential nutrients with special formulas in the animal feed, a significant discovery was made. Disease can be cured, ailments eliminated and life prolonged simply by giving the body what it needs to “heal itself.”
In 1982, Dr. Wallach switched his focus to human biology and became a Naturopathic Physician.
