Mark Mincolla, Ph.D., a natural health care practitioner who has integrated ancient Chinese energy techniques with cutting-edge nutritional science, appeared in the first half of the show. He discussed his innovative electromagnetic muscle testing system, as well as his concept of bioenergetic nutrition. Having seen thousands of patients over 32 years, he's observed that a large percentage of them are physiologically and immunologically deficit, largely because of their diet which includes sugary foods, GMOs, and denatured foods. He referred to the American health care system as a "sick care system" that incentivizes illness, and noted that most citizens don't think of their food diet as part of a plan for disease prevention and self care.
The various organs of the body are functioning at different strengths, and muscle testing (testing the body's responses when applying pressure to a large muscle such as in the arm) can reveal problems or imbalances, and which foods or supplements can make the body stronger or weaker, he outlined. For instance, in his office, he holds a vial of a specific food close to a weakened organ such as a liver. He explained that "the electromagnetic properties within that vial...are going to give us a very pronounced response" that show whether that food would be healthy for the patient, and accordingly he develops a tailored nutrition plan for the patient that is anti-inflammatory.
Mincolla spoke about how acupressure at different points on the body in tandem with muscle testing can also be used to diagnose allergies, and health issues. Acupressure has healing effects, he said, such as touching a point at the top of the wrist in an open palm, which can help with insomnia, and a point in the center of the palm (pulse with thumb for 10-15 seconds) which reduces stress.
Trained as a systems analyst in the energy industry, James Swagger, appeared in the third hour, addressing his research into the megalithic monuments of Western Europe, such as Stonehenge, using a multidisciplinary approach which includes history, astronomy, acoustics, and engineering. One of the sites he studied, Newgrange, a prehistoric astronomical monument built in Ireland before Stonehenge, used quartz that came from forty miles away, which suggests to Swagger that the specific location was important to the builders, because they had to go to a lot of effort to bring the materials there.
The last hour of the show featured Open Lines.
