In the first half, Dr. Joel Wallach addressed alternative health approaches and the benefits of remedies and supplements that aid in the body's recovery from many diseases and ailments. Aside from antibiotics, all pharmaceutical drugs treat symptoms and don't get to the root cause of a problem, he cited. In response to a question about drinking distilled water, Wallach acknowledged that it's preferable to water that has a lot of contaminants, yet he cautioned that it could leech valuable minerals out of your system. A workaround he suggested is to add liquid minerals to distilled water.
For treating toenail fungus, he recommended applying colloidal silver on the nails with a Q-tip, while a supplement that aids arthritis is MSM, which contains the mineral sulfur. Wallach also talked about how his company Youngevity has acquired some 28 other companies over the last 12 years, which have product lines that gel with theirs. Youngevity, he added, is now a publicly held company being traded on NASDAQ, and opened up the stock market for 2018 on January 3rd.
In the latter half, professor, author, and researcher Ken Hanson discussed the history and significance of the Dead Sea scrolls. The Dead Sea, located in a desert region between Israel and Jordan, is so salty that nothing can live inside of it. The first of the ancient scrolls were discovered in clay jars in the 1940s by a Bedouin shepherd looking for his lost goat in a cave near the shore of the Dead Sea. The jars, said Hanson, had been there for 2,000 years and contained parchments possibly written by a Judean sect known as the Essenes. There were thousands of fragments that the Bedouins transported in burlap sacks, which ended up sequestered for 40 years, and were only allowed to be seen by select scholars, Hanson recounted.
The fragments represent some 900 documents that at one time had been complete texts, he noted, and some of them are earlier versions of the Old Testament, which turn out to be almost identical to the ones translated from later documents. Other fragments are not in the Bible, said Hanson, such as the Book of Enoch and Book of Jubilee, which were popular in ancient Israel and dwelled on supernatural entities like angels, the beginning of time, and introduced a solar calendar (surprising because Judaism uses a lunar calendar). Recently, one of the last remaining Dead Sea scrolls to be deciphered was found to refer to an ancient calendar of feast days. For more on Prof. Hanson's work, visit his YouTube channel.
