Highway 3: Unfriendly Organisms
Are you a victim of unfriendly organisms?
Are germs out to get you?
We have grown up believing in the “germ theory” of disease, conceived by Louis Pasteur (1822-1895). Perhaps Louis led us all down the wrong path. It’s time to re-examine the theory.
Put on your maverick thinking cap as we journey down your Health Highway to re-route unfriendly organisms out of your body.
Why do I focus on “unfriendly organisms”?
Because these tiny organisms do not cause obvious infections, they just lurk around in our polluted tissues adding to the degeneration of our bodies. Unfriendly organisms may take the form of bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites.
What do other researchers say about the germ theory of disease?
Claude Bernard, a contemporary of Louis Pasteur and a scientist researching the same things that Louis researched, came up with far different conclusions about the causes of disease. He believed disease occurred because of unbalancing of the internal mechanisms of the body.
Another contemporary of Claude and Louis, Antoine Bechamp, concluded from his research: Organisms that caused disease could not exist on their own in clean air, healthy food, or pure water. Every disease proceeded from a sick environment: from bad air quality, poor water quality, unhealthy food choices, and toxic emotions.
Therefore, Bechamp did not believe that the “bacteria” were the cause of disease, but were the unhealthy consequence of disease. He considered that in the development of disease, the interior environment, the body chemistry, also known as body terrain, was much more important than a germ. When the body becomes toxic, the microorganisms within the body can become disease-producing.
Bechamp’s research introduced the concept of pleomorphism of microorganisms. In other words, bacteria do not stay in one form, but rather, they go through life cycles of various forms depending on the state of the environment of the body or of the soil or of the animal.
The living, dynamic changes of microorganisms can only be observed in live tissues, such as a live drop of blood or water or body fluid. Unfortunately, much of the research that became established in the medical and bacteriology fields was done on dead, stained tissues. Of course, there, you only see one form of an organism. A bacteria looks like a rod shape or a circular shape called a coccus.
It would be easier to categorize diseases and microorganisms if organisms would simply stay in one form. The concept of monomorphism (that an organism stays in one form) is simpler for people to deal with. Thus scientists search for “the cure” for one form of an organism and hope to eradicate disease in all its forms. Unfortunately the “magic bullet” approach doesn’t really work and has led us down the wrong path in disease theory.
Our bodies (and cells) are dynamic and ever changing, responding to environmental influences, and our thoughts and emotions. Unfriendly organisms respond to changes we make.
Change the Body Terrain – Change the Response of the Unfriendly Organism
Look at how you eat. Poor food choices create an internal environment that changes our normal helpful bacteria (good bacteria) into harmful bacteria. These harmful bacteria excrete waste products into our tissues and blood stream adding to the toxic soup in our bodies and overload our bowel, liver and kidneys.
I tell children, “those germs are pooping and peeing inside of you and making you sick. But you can be smarter than those little critters. You can choose to eat in a way that starves them to death.” They get it, and change their ways!
If We Continue to Eat Inferior Food, the Harmful Bacteria Will Crowd Out Our Beneficial Bacteria
For example, continual consumption of sugar and other sweets feeds the normal yeast and fungi in our bowels turning them into more aggressive yeast and fungi that invade our tissues and excrete waste that is toxic to us. Many of you have suffered the consequences of overgrowth of Candida, a normal bowel yeast gone rogue.
The story goes on. With inferior eating habits, accumulation of environmental toxins in our tissues, toxic thoughts and emotions, the “terrain” of our bodies becomes so toxic that the unfriendly organisms flood the system like rush hour on a freeway. Consequently, some people experience more overgrowth and persistence from a virus than they should. In others, parasites, may gain a foothold and impair health. People may experience unusual symptoms with intestinal or other parasites.
But you can overcome these unfriendly organisms because you’re a maverick. You’re ready to take personal responsibility for your health. You can choose to eat healthier and make other changes to force unfriendly organisms off your personal road to optimum health!
