In the first half, Dr. Joel Wallach addressed the human body's ability to achieve natural healing, along with the benefits of remedies and supplements that aid in the body's recovery from chronic conditions. As far as diet, he recommends the book Dr. Wallach's Cooking Without the Bad Foods, which offers 500 gluten and oil-free recipes. He also advised avoiding drinking carbonated beverages as they can neutralize stomach acids that aid in digestion and the absorption of minerals. For a caller with celiac disease, even though she reported that she ate a gluten-free diet, he noted that she might be getting cross-contamination of glutens from other members of her household that consume it.
Wallach praised colloidal silver as administered in a dropper bottle as it can kill bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeast. For a woman affected by Lyme disease, he advised hair testing to check to see if she is low in certain nutrients or has had exposure to toxic heavy metals. For a listener with brittle bones, he suggested the supplements collagen peptides, and MSM, which can help rebuild cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissue.
In the latter half, science journalist Sally Adee delved into the field of bioelectricity --the electric currents that run through our bodies and every living thing and are used as a kind of communication signal. She detailed its misunderstood history dating back to an 18th-century scientific war, and some of the exciting discoveries that could lead to innovative ways to treat health issues. She referred to the idea of the "electrome"-- our body's individual bioelectric system, and how every cell in the body has a voltage akin to a tiny battery.
For a time, bioelectricity was associated with quackery-- unscientific devices that promised cures for a variety of ills. One such contraption called the "Celestial Bed" was said to turn infertile couples fertile after sleeping in it, Adee recounted. She reported on promising recent research in which tumorous cells were made healthy by having their electrical state normalized. Adee was also excited about new developments in brain implants with their own fuel cells, which mimic the human body's native electric capacity. Another hopeful area of research concerns monitoring plants' electrical signals to ascertain their exact needs in terms of fertilizer, etc., which could lead to a revolution in agriculture.
