We Are Different!

What Makes Youngevity Different?
How is Youngevity different from other companies? Mainly, Dr. Wallach’s passion for the benefits of good nutrition! In December 2011 I drove to Nashville, 180 miles, to see this guy lecture and I was impressed. In the spring of 2012 I got to meet him and hear his lecture again. This time I was able to spend some quality time with him. The depth of his knowledge, his compassion for peoples suffering and the passion of his message were impressive. The lecture, called “DeadDoctors Don’t Lie,” is the most popular health lecture in the world, and has sold over 150 million copies. Dr. Wallach gives 300 free lectures per year all over the United States, and hosts two free call-in medical Question and Answer radio programs daily.

Personally, I began taking the products and they have worked better for me than any prescription drug, herbal supplements / vitamin supplements, naturopathic remedies, etc. that I’ve tried (and I’ve tried lots of them)! I have had difficulties with my lower leg since I suffered a very bad break in 2006. Ever since then I have been in a lot of pain and experience swelling if I stand too long. Not a very good problem to have when you stand on your feet for a living. After my meeting with Dr Wallach that spring I began following his advice and now I am pain free and able to spend much more time on my feet without adverse affects. It’s amazing!
Dr. Wallach has been involved in Bio-medical research and treating animals and people for more than 40 years. Dr. Wallach and Youngevity have filed several Health Claim petitions with the FDA and obtained two Qualified Health Claims. There are only a handful of Authorized Health Claims that have been fully vetted by the FDA process.
Dr. Wallach and Youngevity spent a ton of money to get the Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid Claims authorized. The OMB (Office of Management and Budget) urged the FDA to amend the Dietary Guidelines and to get the information out about the importance of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids, yet it took the Dr. Wallach’s petition to get the claim approved.
Because there are hundreds of beneficial nutrients and many of them have multiple beneficial effects for the human body, which means there are many more of these claims that must be filed.
The claims Dr. Wallach has gotten authorized so far have to do with reducing the risk of certain cancers by consuming the trace mineral selenium, and reducing the risks of CHD or Cardiovascular Heart Disease by consuming EPA and DHA, which are Essential Fatty Acids primarily found in fish oils. More than 500,000 Americans die each year from CHD.
Dr. Wallach and Youngevity have not only sued the FDA, they have defended the FDA and the Health Claim Petition Process as well. The FDA was sued by the CSPI which claimed that the Health Claim Petition Process violated the FDA guidelines. Youngevity and Dr. Wallach wanted to help ensure this information continued to be available to the public, so they asked the court to be codefendants with the FDA. By doing this, they could help to protect the Health Claim Petition Process.
Ultimately The FDA, Youngevity, Dr. Wallach and others were successful in defending The Health Claim Petition Process, but we all know that we will have to be diligent in always defending this process. We know there will always be groups that want to limit your access to these nutrients and this information.
In case you were wondering, Dr. Wallach and Youngevity are not in the nutrition business solely to make money. Of course the guy makes money — he promotes his products at his lectures. But you won’t find a harder working, passionate guy when it comes to successful nutrition and health. I’ve met, talked with, and traveled with Dr Wallach dozens of times since. He’s legit. Of course he promotes his products, but when you have something that really works, you want to let people know about it.
Abundance is a natural outgrowth of integrity and truth. It would be remarkable indeed if Dr. Wallach was NOT wealthy!
And anyway, I have no patience with people who object to making money from something good. There are those who think that money is evil and that anything good can’t be tainted with money. Well folks, if good people don’t make money and acquire influence, then the bad guys will take over. It’s as simple as that. Look around the world today and see who has the power and influence. Isn’t it about time the good guys stood up and started to change things for the better?

Toward the end of 2012 I joined Dr Wallach and Youngevity to be a part of the movement that is going to increase health and drastically lower the cost of doing so. According to USA Today, “The cost of providing health care adds from $1,100 to $1,500 to the cost of each of the 4.65 million vehicles GM sold in 2004 and it was expected to spend at least $5.6 billion on health care in 2005, more than it spent on advertising the previous year.” [1]

I’m all for practicality and not just daydreaming!
Health care is out of control. If you want to do something really effective to increase your own physical well being and that of your friends, I’m offering you the opportunity to do so.

Dr. Wallach has worked with and against the FDA to get health information to the public so they may use it to make a better-informed decision regarding their own health. As long as there are those that would want to limit your access to these nutrients and this information, it is important to have people with guts and determination to defend your rights to have access to them.
