The Mighty 90 by Dr. Joel Wallach

Dr. Joel Wallach D.V.M., ND, is a Medical Dr and Veterinarian, who after decades of research on tens of thousands of dead bodies on animals and humans, concluded that a vast majority of disease and natural deaths are due in large part to various nutritional deficiencies. He developed a list of 91 essential nutrients, which he calls “The Mighty 90” (it’s catchier than 91). He developed a liquid mineral supplement to help hospital patients heal and recover from illness and disease. Patients experienced miraculous recoveries and were so impressed by their results, that word of Dr. Wallachs colloidal minerals spread. Throughout Dr. Wallachs decades of research he revised and improved his mineral formula. Dr. Wallach’s Youngevity formulations, have helped hundreds of thousands of people to heal from all manner of disease from arthritis, to diabetes, kidney failure and more.

"Disease is the biggest money maker in our economy.”

Nutritional Deficiencies Diseases

All 91 nutrients are essential building blocks for your body to carry out it’s numerous processes, keeping you healthy and disease free. Deficiency in any of these nutrients can exhibit deficiency symptoms and lead to a cascade of issues as other interconnected systems fail. Think of these nutrients like links in a chain, if one link is weakened the chain breaks.

"The 91 nutrients are like links in a chain. The entire chain is only as strong as it's weakest link. And a failure in any one link, compromises the entire chain. Dr. Wallachs Youngevity products ensure every single link of your health is strong, strengthening your body against disease"

You could also think these 91 nutrients like cogs or gears in a watch, if a single gear fails the watch stops turning. Each gear depends on the other in order for the watch to function. Your body operates in the same way…when a deficiency causes issues in one or more processes, it become a systemic issue putting strain on other systems and it no longer functions properly.

The body is an amazing machine with multiple back up processes, and has ways to temporarily manage deficiencies. But if those deficiencies continue long term, it can lead to a wide range of diseases. Shockingly, even a single missing nutrient can lead to as many as 10 different diseases, resulting in a staggering total of up to 900 preventable ailments that can be avoided by ensuring adequate daily nutrition.

To illustrate this point, let’s examine a handful of examples:

  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Heart Disease
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Cancer
  • Seizures
  • Diabetes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Blood Pressure
  • Obesity
  • Eczema
  • Auto-Immune Disorders

Can't I just get the 91 nutrients in my food?

Well that might have been possible a hundred years ago, times have changed… fruits and vegetables grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us get today due to soil nutrient depletion.

Modern agricultural practices have stripped ever increasing amounts of nutrients from the soil (and fail to replenish those nutrients) which our food grows in. Unfortunately our food becomes more and more depleted, with each successive generation of fast-growing, pest-resistant crops. Don’t even get me started on the bioaccumulation of pesticides in soil…But don’t take my word for it, check out these studies:

  • A Kushi Institute analysis of nutrient data from 1975 to 1997 found that average calcium levels in 12 fresh vegetables dropped 27 percent; iron levels 37 percent; vitamin A levels 21 percent, and vitamin C levels 30 percent.
  • British nutrient data from 1930 to 1980, published in the British Food Journal, found that in 20 vegetables the average calcium content had declined 19 percent; iron 22 percent; and potassium 14 percent.

Ok our food is nutrient depleted...now what?

The point is that even if you eat a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables, you’d have to eat unrealistic amounts, in order to get adequate intake of certain nutrients. Which means despite your best efforts, you are going to be deficient in numerous nutrients essential to optimal function of your body, and if your body lacks the nutrients it needs to function properly, disease is sure to follow. Ultimately that means supplementation is necessary…

You could try buy numerous organic herbs and calculate your intake of the 91 nutrients (good luck) to try and get adequate amounts. Or you can utilize Dr. Wallach’s decades of research and get the  perfect ratios of all 91 essential nutrients in his carefully designed formulations, so you can rest at night knowing your body has everything it needs to keep you healthy and help you heal.
