In the first half, nutritionist and registered pharmacist Benjamin Fuchs discussed alternative health approaches, and offered tips on supplements and healthy changes to one's diet and lifestyle. Good health, he asserted, has multi-dimensional aspects beyond just supplements and diet, which include a connection to the divine, emotional well-being, and having a passion or enthusiasm for life. On the medical issue of polyps in the gall bladder (the organ which helps detoxify the system), he suggested a 2-3 day fast, which is useful for anyone dealing with a chronic challenge. Then, he continued, start on an elimination diet, in which a person notes in a diary what they eat, slowly bringing foods back into their diet, and noting how they react to them.
For those dealing with auto-immune health issues, he also recommends working on the gut and digestion, trying fasting and the elimination diet, as well as taking probiotics, digestive enzymes, and apple cider vinegar with meals. Concerning heart arrhythmia, it can be caused by stress and lack of oxygen. To combat, he advised practicing slow and deep breathing, and using such supplements as glucosamine, cartilage-containing products, and Vitamin C.
In the latter half, Saint John Hunt, the eldest son of "super-spy" E. Howard Hunt, (the CIA agent best known for his involvement in the Watergate scandal) talked about his father's career, the JFK assassination, Fidel Castro, and the suspicious death of his mother, Dorothy Hunt. During his years at the CIA, E. Howard Hunt worked on planning the assassination of Castro and other Cuban officials. After the failure of the Bay of Pigs, Hunt along with other CIA operatives developed a vendetta against JFK, and Saint John believes that it was a rogue group of the CIA that killed him. Further, he stated that a man in a photograph in Dealey Plaza taken on the day of the JFK assassination looks just like his father.
Dorothy Hunt, who was also a CIA agent, was carrying CIA papers showing that Richard Nixon had green-lighted an operation to have Castro assassinated, as well as evidence tying him to Watergate, when her United Airlines plane crashed in 1972, Saint John detailed. He believes the plane crash may have been deliberate as his mother was planning a press conference with a CBS correspondent to blow the whistle on Nixon.
