As an open critic to medical doctors and the western medical and insurance system as a whole, Dr. Wallach continually sheds light on the fallacy of their practice, which is to treat rather than cure disease. His research has repeatedly proven that the human body can and will heal itself when given all of the essential nutrients, which he has famously dubbed “The Mighty 90”. Today, Dr. Wallach continues to lecture all around the country, frequently appears as a guest on radio and TV talk shows, and can be heard weekdays on his own nationally syndicated radio show “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie“.
