In the first half, pharmacist and nutritionist Benjamin Fuchs addressed such topics as prescription deaths, contradictory health recommendations, the problem with the western medical model, and what's behind chronic diseases. He reacted to the news that prescription drugs are killing more people than illegal drugs-- drugs, by their very definition are not healing people, and have toxic elements that can take their toll on users, he remarked. After completing his training, Fuchs moved away from mainstream pharmacy, and works on compounding custom medication, and formulating nutritional and skin care products.
The two causes of all chronic diseases are blood sugar and the digestive system, he suggested, noting that problems with digestion begin at an early age, particularly for children who aren't breast fed. Inflammation, which occurs at the cellular level, is the body's protective response, but it signals that something is imbalanced, he explained. For clearing up digestive problems, he recommended starting with a one-day fast, and improving healthy bacteria in the stomach by taking good quality probiotics and eating fermented foods.
For more than 25 years Carl Lehrburger has studied archaeological and sacred sites in North America, with a focus on ancient peoples in America before Columbus. He discussed his latest work revealing extensive evidence for pre-Columbian explorers in ancient America, such as Celtic relics. He personally explored some of the New England sites highlighted in Barry Fell's groundbreaking book America B.C., and became convinced that Celtic writing and relics, thousands of years old, were indeed genuine, and that migrations to America came over many different periods and waves. These migrations included both trans-Pacific and trans-Atlantic visitors, and one of the biggest drivers of this ancient travel was the quest for gold and silver-- in the Eastern US copper mining took place, while gold and silver were mined on the West Coast, he said. The ancient Celts left evidence of their writing system in New England, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, as well as latter day Celts leaving inscriptions in West Virginia, he said.
One of the most important examples is the site called America's Stonehenge, located in southern New Hampshire, which he characterized as a large area of Celtic stone constructions, dating back 2,000 years. A town in Arizona also dates back to this era, he suggested, and was inhabited by a Roman colony, who left behind their historical record on lead plates. Lehrburger believes there's been a deliberate attempt to keep America's true archaeological history hidden from the public.
