In the show's first half, Dr. Joel Wallach shared alternative health approaches and the benefits of remedies and supplements that aid in the body's recovery from many diseases and ailments. He contrasted the high prevalence of COVID-19 in countries like the United States, Mexico, and England with Asian countries such as Taiwan, Thailand, and Japan, where cases are much lower. The determining factor, he believes, is that foods containing gluten (e.g., wheat or oats) are supposedly consumed at far lower rates in the Asian countries; rice, sweet potatoes, and seaweed are consumed in greater quantities there instead. A gluten-free diet, he explained, allows the intestines and bone marrow to help the body repair cells and respond to vaccination.
But avoiding gluten has benefits that go well beyond protection against coronavirus, according to Dr. Wallach. In his discussion with callers, he claimed that the ailments they described—ranging from diabetes to autism to Alzheimer's disease—could essentialy be treated through his health program that calls for a gluten-free diet. Getting enough minerals is also a requirement for proper health, he said, noting that humans need about 90 total nutrients to live. Wallach said he fully expects this strict health and nutrition regimen to allow him to one day become a supercentenarian: someone who lives to 110 years and beyond.
In the second half of the show, author Kathleen McGowan, the widow of television commentator and investigative journalist Philip Coppens, recounted his ideas and contributions to the study of ETs, and related her personal account of his battle with the illness that took his life in 2012. Although when the two first met, McGowan was impressed by Coppens' depth of knowledge and dedication to his research, she admits she was not convinced by his theory of Ancient Aliens, which proposes that early human civilizations interacted with ETs. Over time, however, the evidence Coppens presented caused her to change her mind. "I realized this is real, this isn't a fairy tale," she said. McGowan went on to share some of her professional experiences with her late husband, including appearing on several episodes of Ancient Aliens, a research trip to Roswell, and writing about the green children of Woolpit, their final project together before Coppens' death.
McGowan also discussed her latest book Magdalene, due out this July. She described the book as her attempt to dispel the myths surrounding Mary Magdalene, and to give her proper credit as an important person in the Bible. One inaccurate understanding of Magdalene in the popular imagination, said McGowan, is her depiction as a downtrodden prostitute; in reality, she believes Magdalene was a powerful woman who played a crucial role in the life of Jesus. Given her background in women's studies, it's important to her that figures like Magdalene are uncovered for who they were, and not written out of history, McGowan said.
