1988 Wooster Beach Gold Medal Award for a significant breakthrough in the basic
understanding of the cause and pathophysiology of Cystic Fibrosis by the
Association of Eclectic Physicians. He has won recognition world wide for his
important work on the trace mineral selenium and its relationship to the congenital

Dr. Wallach is the author of two, alternative health,
self-help books. In the first, entitled "Let's Play Doctor," he reviews over 400
diseases and describes his own naturopathic strategies for dealing with each.
In his second, "Rare Earths: Forbidden Cures," he sounds the alarm concerning the
lack of minerals in our range and crop soils and demonstrates the relationship
between impoverished soils, mineral deficiencies in our diet and degenerative
disease. Dr. Wallach is also the author of the now classic, "Dead Doctors Don't
Lie" audio tape. On the tape he advocates for a common sense, low tech,
nutritionally based approach to health and longevity. The tape has enormous
appeal. As of this writing (2000), over 45 million are in circulation. In
addition, Dr. Wallach hosts his own nationally syndicated radio show,
frequently appears as a guest on radio and TV talk shows across the country and
keeps to a busy schedule of health seminars and lectures.
