In the first half, author and researcher Christian Wilde joined George Noory to discuss his latest work in the arena of health and the ongoing benefits of the spice turmeric. He also updated his research into heart disease and various treatments such as stem cell therapy. Though a recent study showed that heart stents don't help prevent chest pain, Wilde cited a promising new form of stent that was developed in Germany, made from a biodegradable polymer, which dissolves after the stent has strengthened the artery. Heart disease is associated with inflammation in the body, as is cancer, he noted, and one of the many uses of turmeric is to reduce inflammation.
A recent study found improvement in cognition and short term memory for people taking turmeric, he reported. The supplement, he added, has also been found to be beneficial for such conditions as fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy pain, and even carpal tunnel syndrome. Taking turmeric with black pepper helps keep its healthful properties in the body longer, otherwise they are flushed out of the system quicker, he explained. Wilde also shared "heart warming" accounts from the medical field such as when a man generously offered one of his kidneys to a patient that needed one, and as a result saved his own life-- it was discovered there was an aneurysm behind the kidney they removed from him.
Appearing for a half-hour segment at the top of the third hour, non-fiction author and expert in esoteric history Tracy R. Twyman, talked about how groups like the Knights Templar used sex magic rites, and debauched rituals in order to reach higher states, and conjure demons like the hermaphroditic Baphomet. They were, she stated, trying to "break down the pillars of heaven and in so doing...open a portal to the realm beyond."
The last 90 minutes featured Open Lines, with George asking callers to react to the recent shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. George speculated that the shooter was likely after a specific individual rather just randomly targeting the church. Some callers pointed to a connection between shooters and psychotropic drugs, while Ed in Tulsa, Oklahoma suggested that shooters with military backgrounds may have been part of the MK ULTRA mind control program. Also, notorious caller JC Webster phoned in to share a rant about "food pornography."
