Erica M. Elliott, MD, is a medical doctor with a busy private practice in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Referred to as "the Health Detective," she has successfully treated patients from across the country with difficult-to-diagnose health conditions. In the first half, she discussed her years living with the Navajo Nation as a teacher, sheepherder, and doctor, and her profound experiences with the people, animals, and spirits (view related images). She first arrived on the Navajo reservation as a young teacher in 1971. She was allowed to take part in a number of peyote ceremonies, and during one of them, she chanted ritual prayers in Navajo on her own, even though at the time, she did not yet know their language.
Elliott said she witnessed miracles take place during the peyote rituals, including her own, in which a tumor entirely disappeared from her lymph gland after elders prayed over it. She also lived with a family on the reservation while working as a sheepherder. The family spoke no English, so it was an opportunity for her to truly learn to speak Navajo. Year later, in a kind of fulfillment of a prophecy by a Navajo 'grandmother,' she returned to the reservation as a doctor working at an underfunded clinic. She also described some of her other travels, such as to Aconcagua, known as the "Mount Everest" of the Andes in South America. Read more about her adventures in this blog posting.
Bestselling author specializing in science-fiction thrillers that contain accurate science and mind-blowing speculation, Douglas E. Richards has a master's degree in genetic engineering and was Director of Biotechnology Licensing at Bristol-Myers Squib. In the latter half, he talked about his latest research on UFOs and disclosure, as well as the state of science fiction and how authors have consistently had a predictive quality. Richards noted that he'd long been a skeptic on the question of UFOs, but after researching the topic for his latest book, he was stunned by the amount of scientific data on the subject. In particular, he found revelations from the US military in recent years to be compelling, such as craft spotted in the 2004 Nimitz encounter accelerating at over 5,000 gs (which no human could survive), and traveling at a maximum speed of 24,000 mph with no observed air disturbance.
Richards cited papers from the Defense Intelligence Agency with titles like "Warp Drive, Dark Energy, and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions," and "Traversable Wormholes, Stargates, and Negative Energy," that sound like they are out of science-fiction tales but are real. He also talked about two so-called "UFO patents" filed by the Navy, one of which resembles the technology spotted by the Nimitz. This led him to suspect that the craft might have been reverse-engineered. Richards detailed how sci-fi has influenced and stoked the imagination of scientists and inventors over the years. For instance, the communicator device in the original Star Trek inspired a Motorola employee to create the first cell phone.
During the last half-hour, a replay from 2011 with Brad Steiger discussing alien mysteries was featured.
