During the first half, Dr. Joel Wallach shared alternative health approaches, and the benefits of natural remedies and supplements that aid in the body's recovery from many diseases and ailments, without the use of dangerous and expensive pharmaceuticals. Type 2 diabetes can be diagnosed by patients themselves using blood test strips, which are available at pharmacies without a prescription, he cited. Wallach contends that diabetes is related to a deficiency of certain minerals.
Interestingly, he suggested that the root cause of obesity is also due to a lack of certain nutrients. For weight loss, he suggested taking the '90 Essential Nutrients,' as well eating a gluten-free diet and avoiding oils, fried foods, and processed meats. For a caller with ED, he recommended eating as many as 10 eggs a day, which can build up testosterone.
One listener asked if he could get by on just 3-4 hours of sleep a night. Wallach noted that one of the purposes of sleep is to repair the body from the previous day's activity, and because of the nutrient supplements he takes, he needs less time for such repairs, and does well on just 4 hours of sleep, and has more time for waking activities.
Midweek Open Lines followed in the second half. Notorious caller JC Webster, "the 10-star general in the war against media pornography," made remarks about International Women's Day, but then became morose about his partner Edna leaving him for some bikers years ago. Sharon from Crane, MO told of her 82-year old friend, Miss Phyllis, who was pronounced dead from stroke-related conditions at the hospital but suddenly her life signs returned, and she recounted a fantastical trip to the Other Side. A Seattle Uber driver described picking up a fare on a rainy night, a young woman in a hooded cloak. On the 35-minute ride, she sang along to songs on the radio in an angelic voice. But when he got to her destination, she suddenly vanished from the car, and no ride showed up on the app.
