In the first half, Dr. Joel Wallach addressed the human body's ability to achieve healing via natural remedies that aid in the recovery from chronic conditions. He suggested that low cholesterol can be worse than high cholesterol because it can lead to the loss of myelin (the brain's white matter), which is essential for brain and spinal cord function. A number of disorders like Alzheimer's involve issues with myelin, and these problems can be decreased or eliminated by avoiding bad foods (such as gluten, sugar, fried foods, and processed meats) and taking essential nutrients, he claimed. Doc Wallach also cautioned against consuming carbonated beverages and advised popping open the can or bottle, leaving it overnight, and drinking it flat in the morning.
Regarding a listener's question about skin tags, he said they can be treated by spraying them with colloidal silver 2-3 times a day, as this condition is sometimes related to viruses. He believes tinnitus or a ringing in the ears is due to osteoporosis in the skull squeezing the cranial nerves, and supplements that support cartilage and joint function like glucosamine can be helpful. Wallach also commented on the issue of obesity, saying he thinks the underlying cause is nutritional deficiencies, "and their bodies are telling them to eat more, looking for that nutrient."
In the latter half, author, actor, and spiritual seeker Phill Webster talked about his exploratory journey, and learning to "demystify the mystical" on his way to becoming a medium. In recent years, he has explored such paths as meditation, shamanism, ancient Celtic traditions, tarot cards, witchcraft, and the Ouija board. One thing he's learned is that we can benefit from an "inner knowing." Specifically, we don't have to get caught up in the daily drama of our thoughts; rather, we can just observe them. And when we tune in to that, the more trivial things seem to fall away, he added.
Webster said he was intrigued by the medium Claire Broad's story of an early psychic experience in a cemetery near his childhood home in London, and this led him to attend one of her workshops. This eventually started him on his quest to become a medium himself. While some are hesitant about using it, the Ouija board can be a great tool in developing mediumship, as long as you use it with the right intention, he noted. Webster believes that we are all part of a collective soul but incarnate here to have an individual experience. Regarding spirit guides, he has concluded that they are around us all the time and can serve as a bridge between a medium and the departed.
During the last half-hour, George shared his rendition of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart."
