Born and raised in Missouri, Dr. Joel D. Wallach attended the University of Missouri, where he received a Bachelor's Degree in Science of Agriculture. A veterinarian for 30 years, he worked as a research veterinary pathologist with The National Institute of Health for The Center for the Biology of Natural Systems, Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri; and Yerkes Regional Primate Research Center in Atlanta, Georgia, at Emory University. Having discovered and identified the first animal models for cystic fibrosis - monkeys - he found that he could reproduce their condition at will because it was a nutritional deficiency. His find offered great promise for children with the disease, but when he made it public, the institute fired him on a 24-hour notice. Chagrined and perplexed, Dr. Wallach made the decision to go to medical school so he could treat children for cystic fibrosis himself.
He later accepted an invitation to teach nutrition at The National College of , Naturopathic Medicine in Oregon, and eventually became a primary care physician with a Naturopathic Degree - delivering babies, sewing up chainsaw wounds, writing prescriptions and getting paid by insurance - all through a program that encouraged interest in nutrition. Soon people began flocking to his clinics in Oregon.
During the late 80's and early 90's, through further education and work experience, Dr. Wallach became committed to educating as many people as he could about the importance minerals were to the human body. He started writing his now famous book, "Let's Play Doctor," soon followed by "Forbidden Cures," and he began network marketing for a company that sold colloidal minerals. Soon there were thousands of people waiting to hear Dr. Wallach lecture about nutrition and supplementation, and even millions more who purchased his books, videos and audiocassettes.
In 1997, Dr. Wallach established his very own company, American Longevity, in sunny San Diego, California. Dr. Wallach's dream of offering a full service Network Marketing Company for the New Millennium with the very best nutritional, household and skin care products finally became a reality. He then went further and made sure that his company would be a "distributor friendly" organization with a strong support staff, well-built infrastructure and a debt-free balance sheet - all of which guaranteed potential network marketers that American Longevity was here to stay.
Today, Dr. Wallach continues with his mission to educate every single American and others abroad about the importance of supplementation. He presents his powerful series 300+ days each year and without fail, broadcasts his widely popular syndicated radio program "Dead Doctors Don't Lie" each afternoon - live - wherever he may be.
Dr. Wallach has built his reputation on cutting-edge nutrition products, his commitment to all network marketers being able to earn a residual income for life, and to making American Longevity a family legacy for everyone - not just another corporate profit machine!
