In the first half, registered pharmacist, and nutritionist Benjamin Fuchs, who has been compounding custom medication, formulating nutritional and skin care products and consulting with doctors and patients for decades, offered suggestions on supplements, and making healthy changes to one's diet. Aside from trauma and mechanical damage, the body, he believes, is a self-contained healing system from a biochemical standpoint. By eliminating bad dietary choices, and bringing in a good diet and supplementation, "we can go so far towards healing ourselves that doctors, pharmacies, and insurance companies in a large measure can become irrelevant" in terms of treating long-term progressive, degenerative diseases, he remarked.
Natural remedies for neuropathy, such as nerve pain in the foot, as experienced by diabetics and others, include cetyl myristoleate, an anti-inflammatory fatty acid, and cayenne cream for symptomatic relief, he said. A longer term approach to nerve pain would be to deal with blood sugar issues, by keeping your sugar intake down, and taking such nutrients as B vitamins, vitamin A, chromium, vanadium, selenium, zinc, taurine, and magnesium, which help to process sugar, he outlined. For digestive health, Fuchs recommended glutamine, and muscilaginous substances such as aloe vera, noni, and hyaluronic acid which are beneficial to the digestive track.
In the latter half, author and paranormal aficionado Jim Harold shared his latest stories from the world of the strange and unexplained. He detailed the phenomenon known as the 'Mandela Effect' in which numerous people have a shared memory of something that is actually not true, such as that Nelson Mandela died while imprisoned in South Africa. "Are we seeing blips from a parallel universe...and somehow we jumped the tracks?" he pondered. On the subject of doppelgangers, he offered a curious case study, in which a mother encountered a nasty version of her daughter who cursed her out, and then slammed her bedroom door, at the exact time as the same daughter was arriving home at the front door. When the mother and daughter went to check the bedroom, no one was there.
Harold also recounted the tale of the 'Snuggling Ghost' in which a woman named Kim in Arizona moved into a small house, and started noticing strange things such as the smell of roses, and cigarettes in very localized areas, and items in the kitchen pantry mysteriously moved. She woke up one morning in her bedroom, startled to find an elderly woman with stringy gray hair staring at her. The woman said 'I'm really cold, and I don't feel good. Can I come into bed with you?' Though she appeared solid, Kim deduced that the woman was the ghost that had been haunting them, and (as she'd seen on TV) she told her to 'go into the light, as it's warm there, and your family and friends are waiting for you.' The ghost-woman looked into the corner of the room, and vanished into thin air, Kim said, and the haunting stopped after that.
