On one hand, I go online and immediately read that cystic fibrosis is not preventable, and then on the other hand, Dr. Joel Wallach – who thoroughly researched the matter in the 70s – telling me that cystic fibrosis is 100% preventable. And by the way, he was working for the National Institutes of Health at the time, doing the research they had instructed him to do.

Have you ever seen Three Days Of The Condor with Robert Redford? It tells the story of someone in a branch of the CIA, who discovered something the government was trying to hide. The CIA moved in and killed the whole branch of his work colleagues trying to kill him.

The lives of Rudy Juliani, Sydney Powell, and Jenna Ellis could also be in danger.

Dr. Wallach had all the documented research, he had everything, but the establishment didn’t like it and blackballed him.

I strongly suspect that he had divine protection because if he didn’t he would have been dead by now.

The NIH did everything they could to ruin the guy. They sued him 7 times but were always unsuccessful. Definitely God’s protection, and if you still trust the establishment, just turn on the TV.

Slanted: How the News Media Taught Us to Love Censorship and Hate Journalism

The vested financial interest that mainstream media has in medicine is one of the things discussed by  Sharyl Attkisson in her book on media bias, Slanted (2020). She’s an Emmy award-winning investigative reporter. See her discuss this with Eric Metaxas:

Dead Doctors Don’t Lie

The book, Dead Doctors Don’t Lie (Wallach, 1999), has been read by millions. The CD of the same name has sold over 350 million copies.

The main points are hotly denied by mainstream medicine. My question is when the heck are people going to wake up!

The authorities claim that disease is a genetic problem, but there is ample proof that sickness and disease are a nutritional problem. Meanwhile, the forefront of mainstream medicine marches further into the darkness following the gods of vaccine, genetic engineering, and shopping.

Lucrative Medicine

If at any time a medical specialty comes under threat of elimination, because of a major discovery, that discovery will never be given to the public by “orthodox” doctors (Wallach,1999)

The situation with cystic fibrosis is a great shame second only to diabetes because there are many more who suffer from diabetes.

Cystic Fibrosis is not a genetic problem, it is the result of a selenium deficiency: Dr. Joel Wallach

Smithsonian Institute

Over a period of twelve years, pathologist Dr. Wallach was tasked with finding a canary in a coalmine regarding pollution.

He was sponsored by the National Institutes Of Health at a cost of 7.5 million dollars.

He conducted over 20,000 autopsies, 3,000 of these on humans.

Out of this came an amazing discovery: every human or animal that dies of natural causes dies from a disease caused by a mineral deficiency.

He also produced a 1200 page book documenting his work which currently housed in the Smithsonian Institute.

In 1977, a young fast-rising veterinarian pathologist, Dr. Joel Wallach, made the first universally accepted diagnosis of CF (cystic fibrosis) on an animal.

His diagnosis was based on characteristic CF changes, normally observed in human organs (pancreas and liver), but in baby rhesus monkeys.

The diagnosis was confirmed by CF experts from John Hopkins School of medicine, Emory University, and the University of Chicago.

He appeared on television and radio and for a short period, he was a hero.

Founder of Youngevity
Dr. Wallach, founder of Youngevity, and developer of the 90 nutrient formula.

Ultimately Dr.Wallach, conducted over 1,700 autopsies on animals and humans that died from cystic fibrosis.

Experts from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the CF Foundation were overjoyed.

When they discovered that Wallach could reproduce the CF changes with a congenital selenium deficiency model in almost any animal species, that he was saying that cystic fibrosis was not a genetically transmitted disease, but the result of a selenium deficiency during pregnancy, things changed.

He was castigated and derided by his crazed supervisor and given 24 hours to clear out.

He was not allowed to put his case or present evidence as a Ph.D. student would.

He was told it wasn’t in his contract.

“You’re an upstart Wallach, you’re fired!”

He was also “blackballed” from research.

All that on top of his wife’s death 10 days earlier. She had died of cancer.

Wallach says it’s typical of how ruthless doctors can be.

In response he went back to school and trained as a physician so he could treat suffering children, curing them, and he has been doing this for over 40 years.

If you go online, however, looking for information on how to prevent CF, all the articles on the first page will tell you that CF cannot be prevented. This is a lie.

Doctors are not encouraged to think “outside the box”

My father told me not long ago that when his doctor found out that he used to be an electrical engineer, his doctor related how he had been an engineer and wished he’d never made the career change.

He went on to say that engineers were repeatedly told to think outside the box during training but such practice was strongly discouraged in medicine. The following is from HEALTHCARE FINANCE:


What happens to doctors who think outside the box?

Jay Parkinson, MD

Upon finishing my second residency at Hopkins in Baltimore in September of 2007, I moved back to Williamsburg to start a new kind of practice:

    1. Patients would visit my website
    2. See my Google calendar
    3. Choose a time and input their symptoms
    4. My iPhone would alert me
    5. I would make a house call
    6. They’d pay me via PayPal
    7. We’d follow up by email, IM, video chat, or in-person

It was simple, elegant, and affordable for me to start. But most importantly, it just made sense given how we all communicate and do business today. Starting a new practice was obviously challenging for me having never done so before, but my patients loved the experience— I was an accessible, affordable doctor in their neighborhood who communicated just like them.

I was coming off a $15,000 resident salary (“because it’s a privilege to do your residency at Hopkins”). It cost only about $1500 to get started— I designed my website and created the technology to power my mobile practice. I didn’t need an office or staff. Everything was run by me, my iPhone, and my MacBook Pro. My overhead was about 10%, compared to a regular doctor who spends about 65-70% of their practice revenue on overhead. I was profitable after just a few days. The 7 million hits on my website in the first month obviously helped get the word out about my new practice (thank you internet!).

Then, about six months later I got an official letter from the New York State Office of Professional Conduct. Obviously, that was unsettling. It essentially said that someone had made a complaint about my practice and my use of the internet. They wanted all of my records about the eight patients I prescribed narcotics for in my practice— I prescribed one time prescriptions for Tylenol #3 for eight patients treating their acute pain for various conditions. The state wanted a serious offense they could charge me with, hence why they singled out the narcotics. I pulled up my records on my MacBook for all eight patients and made them into a pdf and sent them off to the state proving that I’d seen the patients in person, established a doctor-patient relationship, followed standard medical treatment guidelines, and kept the records to prove it.

Cystic Fibrosis: coined in 1938

CF was initially thought to be the result of a vitamin A deficiency in children dying from celiac disease. In 1938, the term “cystic fibrosis was first coined by a pathologist who mistook the dilation of the pancreatic inner workings (acini) for cysts, which is accompanied by an overall shrinkage and flattening of the pancreatic lining.

CF: Is it really a genetic problem?

In 1952, it was established that CF was a congenital problem and base on a couple of poorly written (in Wallach’s opinion) papers, one published in 1913 and the second in 1965, the idea that sickness and disease developing from within were genetically caused conditions began to gain acceptance.

The papers were so poor according to Wallach that they wouldn’t get past the letter opener of any “orthodox” medical journal today. Similar to the Theory of Evolution, however, the idea fast gained popularity for no good reason. Doctors could go on dispensing their petrochemical drugs that don’t cure anything and maintain a clear conscience.

Everybody knows that there’s no cure for the common cold, but few realize that doctors consider all disease as incurable, rather diseases are a genetic problem and there is nothing to be done but relieve symptoms.

Selenium Deficiency

After many years of research, selenium deficiency has been found to the cause of 19 diseases, and indirectly related to half a dozen more, including HIV converting to AIDS, and cancer.

Selenium is not the only trace mineral we need for maximum immune efficiency. Dr. Wallach over 12 years of research identified 60 minerals that are essential. These minerals cannot be produced by your body or by plants, they are chemical elements. The mineral content in the food you eat varies from item to item. If you were to buy two pumpkins for example the mineral content would differ.

Minerals are not being replaced in crop soils so the only way to be sure you are getting what you need is to take supplements at optimal dosages.

The following is a list of diseases that are totally preventable. (Wallach, 1999). (Don’t take any more than 500 mcg per day)

Mineral Deficiency Diseases

Including selenium which prevents cystic fibrosis.

Not all mineral supplements are the same: Plant-derived colloidal minerals are 98% absorbable

90 Essential Nutrients

Beyond Osteo-fx
Ultimate EFA Plus Omega Blend

I began taking mineral supplements in 2014 and have noticed several positive changes since then. The Youngevity Healthy Body Start Pak has 90 essential nutrients, none of which can be produced by your body.

  • 60 minerals
  • 16 vitamins (including MSM, glucosamine, chondroitin)
  • !2 amino acids (proteins)
  • 2 fatty acids
Youngevity range of 7 Healthy Body Paks

Women who are pregnant, or planning on it, need a baseline of 90 essential nutrients to ensure a healthy baby. You won’t have to worry about a thing.

The treatment for a baby born with cystic fibrosis is very straight forward and is detailed on page 216 of Dr. Wallach’s book Dead Doctors Don’t Lie (DDDL, 1999), but involves IM (intramuscular) injections of 10-25mcg of selenium per day.

Book and CD by Dr. Wallach
Dead Doctors Don’t Lie by Dr. Joel Wallach. Available on Amazon.

I would strongly suggest picking up a copy of Wallach’s book  ASAP and then shop around for a naturopath that is familiar or willing to assist with and oversee treatment – show them the book.

While Dr, Wallach claims a 100% success rate with laboratory animals, I have no information regarding humans but understand that this line of treatment is infinitely better than that offered by mainstream medicine.

While it is true that selenium is toxic in high doses, it is nevertheless essential for your immune system as is arsenic. It’s all about dosage.

Dead Doctors Don't Lie

At the time Wallach made his diagnosis of CF he had been working for the NIH since 1966. Prior to that, he had graduated with two degrees done almost simultaneously: Agricultural Science and Veterinarian pathology. He was given a grant of $7.5 million, to find a “canary in a coal mine” concerning pollution. What he found was, every animal and every human that dies from natural causes dies of a mineral deficiency caused disease. During the course of his research, he performed over 20,000 autopsies, 3,000 of these were on humans. He says his findings were irrefutable.

Later Wallach went on to found Yougevity and put together Yougevity supplement formulas. The minerals are colloidal which means they come from shale deposits containing decayed plant matter. The mineral content of the supplement packs has been verified by independent laboratories.

Other causes of mineral deficiency

Sweating out valuable minerals, that must be replaced.

Sweating can be good because it gets rid of toxins and makes you feel clean afterward. It also gets rid of valuable minerals. If a person has a routine that involves regular heavy sweating and this routine is sustained over long periods and supplements are not taken to replace them, then there is every chance that this person’s appearance has begun to age rapidly.

In Tokyo, Japan, my home for eight years, I did a lot of swimming.

In a good week, Tuesday to Saturday;

  • I swam 4km in the morning
  • 800m in my work break
  • 2 km in the evening

I was doing one heck of a lot of sweating in a heated pool and then taking saunas afterward, and my hair started going grey. By 2014 it was white. Thankfully the color has come back a bit since.

Wrinkles and grey hair, and chances of an aneurysm, are reduced by supplementing with copper.

Stomach acid 

Betaine HCl will strengthen stomach acid, as will plenty of salt.

As we get older our stomach acid slowly becomes weaker.salt. The function of stomach acid is to extract nutrients from what we eat. In addition to the natural weakening of your stomach acid, the intake of the following items accelerates this process. They raise the pH of your stomach acid which means weaker. Don’t become a candidate for wrinkles, grey hair, or aneurysm.

  • Caffeine
  • Carbonated drinks, including beer and Berocca (that burp is the sound of your stomach acid being neutralized)
  • Prescription and pharmaceutical drugs
  • Alcohol- Ever had heartburn after alcohol. That’s your stomach trying to compensate by pumping in more acid.
  • Sugar. Yet another reason to cut back. Orange juice is packed with sugar.
  • Ant-acid medication

Stomach Ulcers

In February 1994, The NIH in America announced that stomach ulcers could be cured with the antibiotic tetracyclines and trace mineral bismuth subsalicylate. They actually used the word “cured” and admitted that stomach ulcers were the result of a mineral deficiency.

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)

They went on to say that stomach ulcers were caused by a fungal infection, and not the result of stress (although once you get the ulcers, it’s pretty darn stressful… speaking from experience) This fungus can also lead to stomach cancer.

Farmers and Veterinarians

Pepto-Bismol: cure for stomach ulcers.

Farmers and veterinarians have known how to cure stomach ulcers since the 50s. If a farmer noticed that one of his or her pigs was vomiting and dehydrated, and had little or no feces, they would give it Pepto-Bismol. No need to get some high priced surgeon from Mayo Clinic. “Hold the mayo!“, they’d shout, if anyone suggested such a thing. Imagine the price of pork in the supermarket if they did get an expensive surgeon.


Crop minerals

Our crop soils are becoming anemic because of over-farming and no rest-rotation.

Mineral concentrations vary throughout the Earth’s crust and our crop soils are becoming anemic because of over-farming and no rest-rotation. Plants can manufacture vitamins using the carbon dioxide they absorb from the air. But nothing and nobody can produce a mineral. If they aren’t in the ground they won’t be in the plants.

 Plants only absorb CO2

From the air, plants only absorb carbon dioxide. That’s all, not even nitrogen.

The National Institutes of Health

In 1966, The National Institutes of Health (NIH) in America, at a cost of $7,5 million commissioned a research program headed by veterinarian pathologist Dr. Joel Wallach, to find a” canary in a coal mine” concerning pollution. 12 years later, after 17,500 autopsies on almost 500 species of animal, and 3,000 autopsies on humans for comparison, the findings were irrefutable. Every animal and every human that dies of natural causes dies from a disease caused by one or more mineral deficiencies. You can read his amazing story in Dead Doctor’s Don’t Lie by Dr. Joel Wallach (1999).

There are 60 essential minerals needed to maximize your immune system. Dr. Wallavh (1999) lists 412 diseases that can be prevented by using the baseline of 60 minerals, 16 vitamins, 12 amino acids, and 2 fatty acids contained in the Healthy Body Start Pak form Youngevity.

At first, I attempted to put together my own collection but quickly realized that the cost would be somewhere near ten times as much and I still wouldn’t have covered everything; Lithium for example.

The chemists and the vitamin shops just don’t have many of the minerals your after.

As far as I can tell, there is nothing available with all 90 nutrients and in sufficient quantities.

Youngevity range of 7 Healthy Body Paks

You take a scoop of the blue and orange cap jars in the morning and a scoop of the orange in the evening. Take one fatty acid gel capsule three times per day (very important for your brain and heart).

Youngevity’s Healthy Body Start Pak.

The Tangy Tangerine (orange cap) contains most of the vitamins and minerals. The blue cap jar contains a larger dose of calcium. Also MSM, chondroitin, and glucosamine.

You will notice a difference in less than a weak. These packs are designed to last you a month. Have something ready to eat each time; the powders (mixed with water), don’t taste bad exactly, but they do taste the same every day.

Be conservative and you’ll get to the end of the month without running out.

Stop your hair thinning or going gray, feel fitter, and stronger even chipper, and you’ll get a good night’s sleep (calcium).

Cystic fibrosis comes as a result of a deficiency of selenium. It is not a problem of genetics. Genetics is a very convenient escape hatch because it releases doctors and researchers from the responsibility of healing. A genetically based disease is obviously incurable. Genetics… is a modern-day scapegoat.

“Stick to the drugs that treat symptoms boys anything else is quackery!”

It has been that way since JD Rockefeller had existing medical practices quashed in around 1910, replacing them with one that would dispense drugs made from petrochemicals to treat symptoms. The petrochemicals of course came from Standard Oil. The “BU$INE$$” of medicine had begun in earnest, and Rockefella became the richest man ever.

You can treat cystic fibrosis with oral supplements of selenium, anything more than that would require professional assistance. It is important to start treatment early. There is a slight chance your regular doctor will help, but you’re more likely to encounter a lot of opposition.

As mentioned at the beginning, even more people suffer needlessly with diabetes, see more.

It’s outrageous to think that the profit motive governs modern medicine.

On a more positive note, I don’t think about this much, but I no longer need to take ant-inflammatory, or hay fever medication anymore, a saving of $100 a month.

I wish you good health for as long as you live.

All the best.

I would be extremely interested to get some feedback on what I have put together. Send me a note in the comment section below, please.

  1. Thank you for sharing this great article about Cystic Fibrosis. I find the discovery made by Joel Wallach to be fascinating and its amazing what he lost then sacrificed to raise awareness and help children. It’s good to know that certain medical conditions can be reversed in patients by means other than medication. Doctors that are born to do the job should not be limited to only what they are taught but should be allowed to think outside the box. Thank you for highlighting on how cystic fibrosis is non genetic and also explaining about the importance of selenium in the body to combat this.

    1. Hi Nozipho, thank you very much for your comments.

      The difficulty began over money when from behind the scenes J.D. Rockefeller took over medicine in America at the beginning of the twentieth century.

      He wanted to sell his petrochemical-based drugs, which only treated symptoms.

      Ever since then anybody who wants to cure people is labeled a “quack”.

      All the best,


  2. Well I would say that for someone like me who has had a theatre operation of a cystic rupture, I would really relate better with this posts nd would also find it a point of interest to enrich my knowledge about this phenomenon. This that you have written is actually great to read and I must say that I gained quite a lot from here. Thanks

    1. Hi Kimberly, I really appreciated your comments.

      I find the subject most fascinating, and tragic at the same time. Cystic fibrosis is a very nasty condition, but pride and money are suppressing vital knowledge. There is also an article on diabetes where the powers that be, are once again suppressing vital information.

      I hope you are well.
