In the first half, Dr. Joel Wallach joined George Noory to discuss how to benefit from natural healing and diet without using modern medicine. He suggested that the causes of cancer are not genetic, and can be related to eating the wrong foods. One study showed that women had higher rates of breast cancer who cooked their meat well done rather than those who ate meat rare, he cited. Avoid processed meats such as bologna, bacon, and pepperoni, which have high rates of nitrates and are cancer risks, he added.
Wallach announced his forthcoming book "The 200-Year Diet," which offers guidelines for increasing one's longevity, and looks at various cultures that have very long-lived people. Many of these cultures don't use electricity, and have a much larger mineral ratio (including rare earth minerals) in their diets, as they put wood ashes from their fireplaces into their gardens, he explained. An herbalist named Dr. Li in north central China is said to have lived to the age of 256 (and reportedly had various certificates to prove it), and Wallach believes this was due to the large amount of minerals in his diet.
With an MA in consciousness studies and extensive training in hypnotherapy and alternative health, Peter Bedard has helped thousands of people overcome pain and the fearful shadow it has cast over their lives. In the second half of the show, he described his journey that led him to tap into the power of the mind and the soul to control our perception of pain. A serious road accident at the age of 17 sent him into a profound near death experience. He described death as a joyous and blissful occurrence. After going through a tunnel, he was met by a loving spirit guide who informed him that he was not supposed to be there. Bedard was suddenly returned to his damaged body, and felt angry about being dispelled from heaven.
Over the years, he was able to heal himself from chronic pain without medications using a method he developed called "convergence healing." It's a kind of "post traumatic growth," he explained, in which one finds a gift in the pain, "naming it, talking to it, developing a relationship with it and asking the pain what it wanted to do in order to heal" on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. A person can visualize their pain taking on a shape outside of them, which helps the mind to see that they are not the pain, he continued. Convergence healing can also be used to treat addictions, in cases where people are self-medicating in order to mask the pain, he noted, adding that emotional pain is often much worse than physical pain.
