In the first half, Dr. Peter Glidden, who has over 25 years of education, training, and experience in holistic medicine, discussed how to use natural remedies and supplements to maintain health and even recover from debilitating conditions. Sadly, due to a lack of pragmatic medical advice, the things many people do for their health are usually counterproductive, even though they have the best intentions, he remarked. And the last 10 years of most people's lives are often not that great, he continued. "It's the golden years brought to you by conventional medicine," with the elderly needing prescription medicines to wake up, to fall asleep, to manage their blood pressure, and heartburn, as well as an additional prescription to manage all the side effects of the other medications. Conventional medical doctors are trained how to manage patients' symptoms rather than bring about good health, he added.
Regarding evaluating whether a specific nutritional supplement is working for you, Glidden said that after a 90-day trial period, if you don't get any noticeable results, you should abandon it and try something else. Heartburn and insomnia are both related to calcium deficiencies, whereas magnesium and selenium are good supplements for heart health, he reported. Cholesterol is actually important for health, "and we have been led down the goose path by the pharmaceutical industry for the last 40 years," who have demonized this natural body substance, he asserted.
In the latter half, former minister for the Assemblies of God Church, Jeffrey Daugherty, addressed curious conundrums including imagery of UFOs, aliens and ETs which are all connected with Christmas lore. The New Testament has been edited over the years to reflect the sensibilities of those in power, such as King James, "but it's time to audit the New Testament, to look at it with 21st century eyes," and when we do that, we'll see and discover things that we never noticed before, Daugherty suggested.
There is evidence that the Apostle John taught that Jesus came to Earth as a fully grown man and was much more than a "run-of-the-mill god," along the lines of the pantheon of pagan gods that had come before. Daugherty believes John was countering language of this type in the Christmas story that was added in order to play down Jesus' unique message and devalue his status. He also cited passages from the Book of Matthew describing Mary holding in her womb "something from the Lord," and the Book of Luke referring to the womb being seized and overtaken by a greater power, which are reminiscent of an alien abduction scenario and insemination. "I don't think Jesus was an ET, but I believe that there's somebody who wants us to believe he was," he concluded.
