In the first half, pharmacist, nutritionist, and cosmetic chemist, Ben Fuchs shared alternative health concepts, and offered tips on supplements and healthy changes to one's diet and lifestyle. "We have allowed health to become corporatized," he lamented, "and there's an unsavory relationship between the corporate culture and our personal health and well-being... We've abdicated our...responsibility and given it to authorities." We need to take this back ourselves, as we can't trust our health to institutions, he declared. The current pandemic crisis, he added, offers us an unprecedented opportunity to take a fresh look at our health issues.
Supplements he recommended for a woman recovering from cardiac surgery, included selenium, niacin, and EFAs (which function as blood thinners). The seaweed supplement fucoidan, as well as glucosamine, work well as blood thinners too, he noted. Cayenne is also good for the heart and can be sprinkled into juices. Most autoimmune ailments are due to digestion issues, said Fuchs, and those with these concerns should pay attention to what they're eating. Problematic foods include gluten, grains, legumes, and in some cases eggs and dairy. Often people are already aware of which foods cause them trouble, he pointed out.
Joanne DiMaggio has been actively involved with Edgar Cayce's Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) since 1987. She has professionally pursued past-life research and therapy for over 25 years, founding PLEXUS (Past Life Exploration, Understanding and Sharing). In the latter half, she presented the results of her yearlong research project chronicling the journeys of 25 men and women who revisited the past life most impacting them today and then explored the afterlife to see what souls do between lives. During their regressions, people in the study came to understand why they chose their current body and selected their parents-- a process they underwent during the "between lives" state.
Regarding the experience of death, the research subjects said they were conscious as it was happening and felt a feeling of freedom and release. They described the afterlife as a shift in frequency with swirling energy, and the ability to travel anywhere with ease. They saw vivid colors and beings of white light. Many of them described encountering a "gateway" or entry portal on the Other Side, where a guide greeted them. Interestingly, in visiting the previous life that impacted them most, 25% of the participants went back to a reincarnation that took place before 1000 AD, she reported. Wise, non-judgmental beings known as the Council of Elders worked with them between lives, DiMaggio detailed. Generally, people waited 50-200 years before reincarnating (though those whose lives were cut short often came back sooner).
