Dr. Wallach's "Start Smart" Protocol
Supplementing with the 90 Essential Nutrients to Achieve Optimal Sustainable Health
According to Dr. Wallach, no matter a person's age, sex,
personal background or health challenge, the place to start when it comes to
smart supplementation is with the basics: with taking in all 90 nutrients
essential to human health on a daily basis.
Just as we each need a daily intake of pure water, refreshing sleep and
clean air, we also all need a daily intake of essential nutrients: the 60
essential minerals, the 12 essential vitamins, the 16 different essential amino
acids (building blocks of protein) and the 3 essential fatty acids. Ideally, we would be able to obtain the essential 90 from the foods we eat.
Sadly, though, due to the sort of agriculture that has been practiced
the past 100 years, acid rain, the phenomena of nutritionally empty fast and
processed food and a variety of other factors, even the USDA now admits that it
is impossible to get all the nutrition we need from the food we eat. Without air we die in a few minutes. Without water we last a day or so. Neglect one essential nutrient or group of
nutrients and, over time, inevitably, we fall victim to one or more of 900
different nutritional deficiency diseases, from heart disease and diabetes to
loose teeth and gray hair. So the best
insurance policy there is and the most significant step forward any of us can
make toward reclaiming, achieving and sustaining optimal health is to establish
a "baseline" or nutritional foundation of the essential 90.
Many visitors here at www.majesticearth-minerals.com,
though they may be arriving fresh from hearing Dr. Wallach's powerful message
of health through self-health, are still stuck in the old modality of "one pill
for every ill." They scour our site,
looking for a disease-specific product that will rid them of a particular
annoying symptom. But reclaiming health
through smart supplementation does not work that way. Nutrients are not medicine or drugs. Drugs force an effect but
often at the cost of incurring dangerous side effects. Nutrients, on the other hand, work with the
body's own, innate intelligence, supplying the body with an entire workshop of
tools it knows precisely how to use to achieve, protect, preserve and extend
its own peak health, all without risk or side effects.
While a health challenge, for example, hypertension, might
be traced to a calcium deficiency (80% of the cases can), just taking in extra
calcium is not, necessarily, the answer.
After all, the body works in balance. Too much of a specific nutrient can throw the body out of
balance. Too much calcium, for example,
especially unescorted calcium or the wrong kind of calcium, can contribute to
hardening of the arteries which, in turn can eventually, squeeze down the
arteries shooting up blood pressure numbers.
Achieving optimal health through smart supplementation is actually sort
of like raising a healthy crop. A
skilled gardener will start with the basics of rich, fertile soil and adequate
water and sunshine and then let the plant do the rest. Similarly, once you supply your own body with
a daily intake of the essential 90, chances are your body, too, will do the
rest, paying you back over time for your attentiveness, with a handsome harvest
of health dividends.
A visit to Dr. Wallach's Online Catalog will
reveal over 250 individual wellness products.
Certainly each has its own application and use and can add to a person's
quality of life. However, rather than a
scattershot approach, the most efficient, least expensive and logical way to
make good use of Dr. Wallach's supplement offerings is to start with the "core"
supplements, the three supplements that establish a baseline nutritional
foundation of the essential 90. After
90 days of saturating one's system in the essential 90 most people find that
they need not pile on with the specialty products. It all depends on the individual, really. If you have neglected your health, over the
years, if your diet has been poor, then, perhaps stronger measures will be
called for. But see what you get with
the essential 90, first, is Dr. Wallach's advice. Keep it simple. Keep it
low tech. Keep it safe (the specialty
supplements are safe but drugs certainly are not!) and keep it at a relatively
In the pages to follow (next page) we will examine and discuss Dr.
Wallach's core supplements. The original, "basic three," were the Majestic Earth Minerals, the Majestic Earth Ultimate Classic and the Ultimate EFA.
However, largely due to objections to taste, Dr. Wallach has added some more user-friendly formulations able to
accomplish the same goal at minimum added expense. We will discuss each, individual product and all the grouping options in the pages to follow.
