“A physician is obligated to consider more than a diseased organ, more even than the whole man - he must view the man in his world.”
Harvey Cuching, M.D.,
Father of Neurosurgery, Pulitzer Prize Winner
Holistic Medicine relates to or is concerned with the whole or with complete systems rather than with the analysis of, treatment of, or dissection into parts. Through this approach, the intent is focused on treatment of the whole person. Thus, the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of one's life are interrelated in the healing process.
"The cause of many diseases is unknown to the physicians of Hellas (Greece) because they are ignorant of the whole. For the part can never be well unless the whole is well. This...is the great error of our day in the treatment of the human body"
"The greatest mistake in the treatment of diseases is that there are physicians for the body and physicians for the soul, although the two cannot be separated."
Plato, 356 B.C.E.
Holistic Medicine is known by many names but quintessentially it is distinguished by its relentless commitment to follow the Laws of Nature.
"Vitality and Beauty are gifts of Nature for those who live according to its laws."
Leonardo Da Vinci
Holistic Medicine is less interested in finding patentable solutions and more interested in discovering how nature and homeostasis (the inner wisdom or doctor) work synergistically as wise entities in order to better respond to the individual and its needs. In this endeavor, personal experience, patient feedback and empirical evidence are taken seriously. Science plays an important but not exclusive part.
Holistic Medicine does not separate the wholeness of the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of one's life. The philosophy and practice of the holistic approach are best explained by the quantum theory of existence rather than the Newtonian mechanicistic model.
Holistic Medicine utilizes physical and nonphysical modalities and essentially tends to be non adversarial. It relates to the body as The Source of Wisdom that is superior to all the brains of all the doctors and scientist-researchers that ever lived, put together, and therefore the greatest ally in healing.
"It's supposed to be a secret, but I'll tell you anyway. We doctors do nothing. We only help and encourage the doctor within."
Albert Schweitzer, M.D.
Acknowledging that Nature doesn't need to be told how to heal itself, holistic medicine practices are oriented toward elimination of toxins, release of traumatic imprints and realigning the body around the embryologic forces of development and regeneration, thus creating the best environment for this Wisdom to exercise its own prerogatives of healing.
"The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease."
Francois Voltaire (1694-1778)
The Physician-Healer is never the only aspect of the healing process. It is rather a symbiotic, co-creative journey that the patient and the physician-healer engage upon.
The Patient is invited to:
Fully assume responsibility of ALL their thoughts, feelings and actions.
Gradually replace low-vibration, non-supportive thoughts, feelings and actions with life affirming ones, according to the Laws of Nature.
Dot Assume the leadership of the health team practitioners.
Alternative Medicine is as diverse as nature itself and may involve nutrition, nutrient supplementation, yoga, herbs, detoxifications, homeopathy, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, ayurveda, naturopathy, breath work, massage, energy work, osteopathic manual medicine, faith healing, indigenous rituals and ceremonies, lifestyle changes and many other traditional methods that support people in creating lives more consistent with health, healing, ease and well being.
Since these practices are fully aligned with the nature's laws, wisdom and design for healing, Holistic Medicine is actually The Natural Medicine.
"The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease"
Thomas A. Edison
Each area of knowledge and expertise has something of value to offer on the road to healing and well-being. The healing potential is expanded by the synergy of various methods joining in a common interest determined to serve a healing purpose. It has a greater effect when people work together, rather than competing. Even if their focus is diverse, their common integrity and intention to heal creates a sense of community that is in itself healing. That alignment is consistent with how the body operates, many parts serving the healthful interests of the whole, each doing its share and contributing where its expertise is most valuable and appropriate in achieving a successful healing.
The successful physician of the future will be the one who sees her/himself as a humble facilitator of natural remedies and divine interventions.
“Vitality and beauty are gifts of Nature for those who live according to its laws.”
Leonardo da Vinci
Vibrant Health is an ongoing journey, requiring deep awareness of one's mental, emotional, physical and spiritual walk through life.
We want to share with you the philosophy and practice of natural healing that we bring to our patients in our everyday work.
The body has the innate capacity to create, regenerate and heal itself. It proved it over millions and millions of years as it developed from the simplest, one-cell-organism form of life to the complexity of the human body of today. And it goes through this process again and again as it develops from 2 cells the size of this dot "." into a community of 50-75 trillion cells that we call the human body, over a period of 9 months, during the pregnancy.
Biological systems are in continuous movement and designed to self-regulate, self-correct and live interdependently with all other forms of life, pending they are provided with the optimal tools to do so. Recent industrial progress has considerably altered our basic needs for healthy living: air, water, food, ways of life, community. Degenerative dis-eases including autoimmune disorders and cancers are rampant and more and more "new illnesses" are surfacing almost daily.
We do not simply one day wake up with a dis-ease. Life affects us. For every effect (symptom/disease) there is a cause. Unhealthy (dis-ease promoting) habits during our lifetime corroborated with genetically transmitted weakened terrains create the premises for a decreased function, which eventually lead to a chemical imbalance and subsequently anatomical changes that will express themselves as signs and symptoms. The common tendency today is to ignore the little signals our body is sending us and annihilate them with some quick, over-the-counter symptom-relief medication and keep going as if nothing is wrong. Let me ask you this simple question: If the oil level in your engine drops below the "low level" and the "low oil light" flashes in your dashboard, what do you do? Do you cut the connecting wire and keep driving like nothing happened or are you going to address and correct the original cause, which is adding more oil? Isn't it funny that we take the appropriate action with our cars, but we choose to ignore ourselves? Nature (immune system, homeostasis) will always attempt to shift the balance towards Health/Ease and away from dis-ease, but it will be successful only if we respect a few basic natural laws, that are sine qua non (mandatory) for optimal health:
It takes a lifestyle change to do that. And it takes a fully committed person that is willing to be an active participant in the healing process and take full responsibility (ownership) of their life and journey towards well being.
Our body is a community, a village or tribe of 50-75 trillion cells living together interdependently, in continuous loving, respectful interaction and interrelation. There is no function in the human body that is not also represented in the cell. Therefore, in order to understand ease and dis-ease at the macroscopic level (human body), we need to study the microscopic level (cell), the unit of structure and function of the human body.
Complex patho-physiologic mechanisms of dis-ease and injury can actually be reduced at cellular level to 3 basic pathways:
"The cell is immortal. It is merely the fluid in which it floats that degenerates. Renew this fluid at regular intervals, give the cells what they require for nutrition, and as far as we know, the pulsation of life can go on forever.
Dr. Alexis Carrell - Nobel Prize Winner
A proper function ensures a proper structure and vice versa. Healthy cells make healthy organs, healthy organs make healthy systems and healthy systems make a healthy body.
Chronic conditions (diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer etc.) develop as toxic accumulations, layers upon layers, over a long period of time. Natural ways of healing usually go the reverse way by eliminating the last (most recent) layers first and making their way to the "bottom of the pile", a process that is time consuming also. Hering's Law states that the healing process occurs first from inside to the exterior, second from the most vital to the least vital organ system and third in reverse order from how the symptoms appeared. There is no wonder pill in nature that will make you get totally well overnight. The opportunity one is faced with is to travel the sometimes sinuous path to unveil the real cause of dis (un) ease, instead of reaching for the "quick, drive thru" fix that brings with itself a greater toll down the road.
"The person who takes medicine must recover twice; once from the disease and once from the drug"
Sir William Osler, MD, co-founder of Johns Hopkins Hospital
and School of Medicine, father of Internal Medicine.
Every seed contains within the picture of the whole tree with roots, trunk, branches, leaves, flowers and fruits. It takes proper soil, sun, wind, water, fire, time and divine grace to manifest it into reality. And so is the healing journey, it takes time, patience, understanding, daily practice, commitment, consistency, integrity, trust and joy.
We are totally committed to assist anyone who is ready to achieve their highest possible potential and fully, whole-heartedly be a co-creator in the journey.
Tomorrow brings what you believe in and do today.
As a physician I am merely a helper, a facilitator, someone who studies and understands Nature in order to assist It in It's divine work.
“One-quarter of what you eat keeps you alive. The other three-quarters keeps your doctor alive.”
Hieroglyph found in an ancient Egyptian tomb.
We all start our lives with vitality and health in an amount that depends on the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual heritage of our individual soul and the ancestral genetic lineage we are born in. It is almost never 100% because none of us can possibly come today from 100% healthy lineages anymore.
We also begin with minimal or zero toxicity. Let's take for the sake of metaphors the example of a new house in which we just moved in. The health and vitality are represented by a pantry full of "functional reserves", some of these being:
The level of toxicity is best depicted by the garage of the "new house" that is empty at birth. As we go through life, stresses start consuming and depleting our health pantry supply and toxic waste starts accumulating in our garage. The typical scenario involves piling up stuff in the garage that we don't use any more but don't want to throw away. Therefore we keep it slightly away from our awareness (bloodstream) and deposit it in the garage (the equivalent is body fat, muscles storages etc.) until one day there is so much stuff accumulated in the garage that the car doesn't fit no more. The next step is barely being able to slide through the piles of stuff. Now that's serious toxic accumulation. Because of the immense biological reserves and "back-up systems" our bodies have, we initially don't "feel" the effects of health depletion and toxic accumulations.
It takes somewhere between 70-95% tissue damage in many organs before their cry for help becomes loud enough to reach our "inner ears". These are called symptoms. They are the body's built in mechanisms acting to heal/regenerate/call for our awareness. As you can see by now, being symptom free is not even close to meaning that one is healthy.
A healthy body detoxifies itself primarily through the intestines, liver and kidneys and secondarily through the lungs and skin. These organs need certain essential factors and nutrients in order to perform their function at peak performance.
The large intestine requires significant fiber, phytonutrients and essential fatty acids. It's health is determined by regular bowel movements, proper flora, no buildup of internal toxins (fermentation and bile products) and a strong intact barrier that prevents leakage into the circulatory system.
The liver requires proper ratios of protein to carbohydrates in the diet, oligo-elements and antioxidant nutrients. It is designed to filter out toxic substances in the blood (from intestines, lymph and lungs) and transform them through a two-phase process into harmless water-soluble ones that are eliminated through the kidneys.
The kidneys require one liter of pure water per 100 lbs. body weight daily and also certain oligoelements.
When the toxic overload cannot be adequately handled by the liver, kidney and intestines, the next line of defense consisting of lungs and skin is kicking in.
When the toxic overload such as mental, emotional, physical, biochemical or spiritual stresses affect us over a longer period of time, the functional reserves and compensatory mechanisms become exhausted and subsequently the body enters progressive stages of degeneration that continuously worsen, if the initial Cause is not being addressed properly.
The body's first reaction to a toxic overload is:
Let's look into Diabetes Mellitus, a disease that more and more people find themselves unfortunately getting "acquainted with" today in the world of refined carbohydrate indulgences we live in. Over-consumption of high glycemic index foods puts the pancreas in a hyperactive (overactive) state in which it will secrete more insulin in order to accommodate the high glucose levels in blood. Subsequently the blood sugars will drop too low, reaching a hypoglycemic state. As a result, hypoglycemic people need to eat again soon to correct that. This creates a glycemic rollercoaster that puts the whole body under tremendous stress. Over time, the pancreas becomes exhausted and sluggish (hypoactive state). An ongoing abusive lifestyle will continuously increase the need for insulin production that will not be able to match the increased carbohydrate intake anymore and will result in hyperglicemia and decreased insulin receptivity by the cells. When the pancreas reaches the 4th stage of degeneration (atrophy) it shuts down and has nothing left to give. The individual then becomes insulin dependent.
If an organ continues on and on without a chance to regenerate and rest, it will eventually shut down. Then it becomes imperiously necessary to substitute or replace the function that organ served.
A healthy lifestyle will enable the body to heal itself and if given enough time, it will eventually revert to a balanced state of Ease.
Let's look now at the classic "inconvenient" headache or cold that we so often mask by rapidly throwing down the throat some over-the-counter pills that only disconnect the command center (brain) from it's peripheral "agencies" that are reporting the imbalance. A cold or a headache is the body's own warning built-in system attempting to tell us about potential problems such as dehydration, a pH imbalance, an allergic response to a foreign body, increased stress levels etc. Are you listening? One fact is for sure, a headache is not caused by a Tylenol deficiency in our body.
In medical school, our pharmacology (greek for the science of poisons) and internal medicine professors overemphasized the fact that all drugs are toxic.
"All drugs are poisons, the benefit depends on the dosage."
Philippus Theophrastrus Bombast Paracelsus (1493-1541), father of Pharmacology
We are taught that drugs work by interfering with the body's metabolism through blocking or stimulating certain biochemical processes. They actually modify the symptoms of dis-ease, "attempting" to correct the initial imbalance by frankly misinterpreting the body's healing mechanisms for failed responses.
Of course, beyond any doubt, medications are life saving in emergency situations such as severe infections in immuno-compromised patients etc. But drugs don't cure anything! There is no "thing" that cures! Only nature cures! Along with poor life habits and a polluted environment, medications only add to the already existing toxic burden of the body.
"The first duty of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine. The person who takes medicine must recover twice; once from the disease and once from the drug"
Sir William Osler, MD, co-founder of Johns Hopkins Hospital
and School of Medicine, father of Internal Medicine
Our body has multiple inherent defense mechanisms that protect it from the invasion of toxic substances. These responses are often misunderstood and misinterpreted as symptoms of illness rather than a vigorous health response. Rash, diarrhea, runny nose, fever or headaches are just a few ways through which the body attempts to heal itself (see stages 1-2 above). Rather than support our body in its attempt to heal, we often suppress it with some form of over-the-counter medication. Regular intake of symptom relief medication ultimately will suppress the defense mechanisms, weaken the immune system and make us even more susceptible to future afflictions.
Among the most misunderstood processes is the Inflammatory Response. In physiology it is referred to as a "site-condition-time-specific" response. It is the mechanism through which the body limits the extend of injury by isolating it, putting it at rest, providing all the necessary building blocks for the regeneration journey and ensuring proper clean-up of the damaged area. Rubor, tumor, dolor, calor and functio leasa is the classic descriptive latin pentad of inflammation.
Rubor=redness, signifies the immediate vascular response providing an increased blood supply to the area with subsequent delivery of nutrients and drainage of waste products
Tumor=swelling, signifies an abundant download of construction materials needed for regeneration, tissue fluids swelling
Dolor=signals the command center that an area is under the weather and requires protection and rest (the Police yellow tape ... Caution/Do Not Enter)
Calor= signifies increased heat due to increased blood supply to the area with subsequent delivery of nutrients and drainage of waste products, also speeds up white blood cells traveling to the area, inactivates germs
FunctioLesa=decreased use of the affected area, promoting and reinforcing the necessary rest in order to facilitate proper and permanent healing.
Without inflammation, wounds would never heal and infections would never be contained. By constantly popping anti-inflammatory medication, one completely overrides this mechanism of healing and curses her/himself to a lifetime of sickness and medical treatments.
Fever also ranks pretty high in the top misunderstood processes of the body. For every degree Fahrenheit that our temperature goes up, the speed at which the white cells (the circulating immune system) travel doubles up, such that at 104 F their speed is 64-128 times faster than normal. This provides the "affected area", usually an infection, with all the necessary tools to properly address the situation.
Imagine a huge Tsunami hitting coastal California and injuring thousands of people. The 911 System is sending hundreds of ambulances at maximum speed into the affected area in order to provide immediate relief. Now imagine you take a fever-lowering drug. You have just decreased the speed of the 911 ambulances to a mere 5 MPH ride. How would you think and feel if you were in charge of the Emergency Relief Operations? Perhaps not too intelligent?
And the same applies to coughing, vomiting, diarrhea etc. Natural Medicine understands these self-healing mechanisms and supports and sometimes even stimulates more of the same (increasing an existing fever even more etc.)
We don't develop a streptococcal throat infection at age 28 because mom didn't sprinkle enough penicillin in our breakfast cereal growing up. Headaches are not caused by a Tylenol ES deficiency either. By the same token we do not develop cancer because our diets are low in chemotherapy and radiation.
Our body, homeostasis (the inner doctor) is calling for rest, sleep hygiene, fresh air, pure water, adequate nutrition, proper mineral and vitamin supplementation as needed, exercise, a balanced mental-emotional-spiritual life and removal of the stressing agent/habit -in order for It to exercise It's own prerogative of self-healing.
Health and Healing are a continuous journey. Temporary discomfort in form of symptoms and signs give us the opportunity for self-inquiry, learning, growing and becoming more aware of the present moment as we assume full responsibility of our own life.
“It’s supposed to be a secret, but I’ll tell you anyway. We doctors do nothing. We only help and encourage the doctor within.”
Albert Schweitzer, M.D.
Let's look for example at the all too common headache, whereby we typically take Tylenol or some other quick over-the-counter pain medication to eliminate the inconvenience. This suppresses the most obvious symptom, pain, but it does not get rid of the cause of the headache. There can be numerous reasons for a headache, from a misaligned spine or neck, tension in the shoulders, stress, an acidic pH in the tissues, an allergic response to a substance, cranial pressure, a tumor, inflammation, eye or tooth problems, infection or sinus congestion, to name just a few. To imply that pain medication fixes all of these plus all the other numerous possibilities is simply ludicrous and missing/avoiding the opportunity to take full responsibility for our own life and well-being. Unfortunately, all to frequently and without much thought, we use the easy, comfortable and most convenient strategy, even if it is ultimately harmful. We rarely consider the harm (side effect) until it also starts to produce its own obvious symptoms.
While the statement may sound ridiculous at first, it is nevertheless true. We are taught to believe that "taking something" can cure a problem in the body as if that "something" knows what to do and how to do it. When we look at the most obvious elements that participate in the curing process, we can only find one thing that "knows" what is going on and that is our body itself (homeostasis-the immune system-the inner doctor).
Our body is capable of producing over 700,000 different chemicals in perfect proportions and at the exact moment when they are needed. These chemicals facilitate our body's second-by-second adaptation to the constant environmental changes happening in the microcosm (inside our body) and macrocosm (outside our body).
Our body is the best drug-producing company and laboratory there is. Upon demand, we will create our own anti-depressants, anti-cancer, anti-biotics, pain relief medication etc. with no prescription needed, literally no side effects, in the precise dose and concentration and administered exactly where it is needed for as long as it is needed.
Our perception and interpretation of the environment we live in will direct our body to produce the appropriate biochemical responses. Our intentions, thoughts, feelings and how we choose to act upon them are literally (biochemically) determining the life we are manifesting.
No human brain can even begin to comprehend these complex processes. What makes you think that a medical doctor after a rather brief interview, makes a snap diagnosis and is able to come up with the exact amount of the right chemical that is missing?
One fact though stands clear: Headaches are not caused by a Tylenol deficiency.
The body uses many diverse resources and most of them come from what we breathe and ingest. Our body is a community, a village or tribe of 50-75 trillion cells living together interdependently, in continuous loving interaction and interrelation.
Each individual cell in the body makes the distinction as to what it is going to use and how to use the resources we provide it with. It decides what to allow into itself, what to use, what to avoid and what to get rid of. If it didn't, there would be no such thing as self-preservation or immunity. This is the basis of all immunological function to the point of the cell being overwhelmed by a substance or event that exceeds its resistance to being changed. This phenomena is called Gene Amplification and is the determinant factor in the cell's resistance to being stressed by anything harmful to it's structural and functional integrity. The cell will initially resist any attempted change or alteration to the point of being overwhelmed. The information regarding the surviving cell's resistance is passed on in the genes of the new baby-cell following cellular division. The new generation of cells is more resistant to the stress because of the information passed on to it, and this is how cells basically become stronger and more resistant to challenges to their well-being. We call it immunity. Collectively, the cells work as a team (holistically) creating what we interpret as an "immune system". You can see that something external to the cell's function can not cure anything because the so-called cure can only be induced by the cell/cells and not by the tool the cell uses. The cell is alive, it breathes, eats, excretes waste material and replicates itself. The "universe" it does this in, along with all its friends and relatives, is called the biological terrain, the body.
The body developed from two single cells contained within an egg about the size of this dot "." and to presume that it doesn't know what it is doing at any given moment is to deny the body's very journey of self creation. The body always knows what it is doing and it has always known how to do it even from the time it was as small as that dot. It created itself in all directions simultaneously. It created the blood, heart, brain, eyes, teeth, skin, bones, hair and everything else...and when it started, none of those "Things" existed to tell it how to do it.
Also the belief that the body makes mistakes is a misinterpretation. If the body was prone to mistakes, its and our evolution would have ceased long ago.
The question is, what is contributing to the malfunction? Throughout life, the body, almost without exception, is subject to the availability and quality of the raw materials used in its construction. It uses this material in order to recreate and regenerate itself from moment to moment. We (that which is not the body) may not understand what the body is attempting to do, and all to frequently, we misinterpret what it is attempting to do or communicate. But, when given the raw materials it needs to heal and when we minimize, or more desirably, eliminate what interfered with its health in the first place, it heals itself according to its own priorities and methodology. After all, the body is recreating, replacing, healing, repairing and maintaining its own status to various degrees and from moment to moment anyway. The weakest link in its ability to maintain its health is us. Or put in a more metaphysical way, the personality or being which occupies the body.
The body relies entirely on "our" ability to gather the raw materials and resources it ultimately needs to function optimally. To the extent that it is denied or ignored, the body suffers. The quality of the raw material makes a difference. The body is made out of what we eat and drink (ingest), and the old engineering phrase "quality in, quality out," applies in the most literal sense. How safe would we feel if the next time we flew on a jet plane we found out that the nuts and bolts used to put it together were purchased at our local "99 cents" hardware store instead of being custom made to the exceptionally high standards for the specific purpose for which they are used.
The same reasonable expectation of quality should apply to what we think, feel, breathe, eat and drink, but when you look around and see what most of us are using for raw materials in the ongoing rebuilding of our own body, it explains the advanced degeneration of health and rapid proliferation of disease in most "civilized" industrial societies today.
When it comes to health, as well as human behavior, can we deny the influence the quality of raw materials being used in the ongoing recreation and maintenance of the body has? Are we being respectful of what nature has so exquisitely presented and made available to us?
What happens when we introduce deficient, denatured, sterilized, processed foods, food substitutes, preservatives, dyes and other unnatural substances in considerable amounts into the body and for long periods of time? How does it interfere with the body's ability to follow it's own rules of health?
What happens when the essences and substances of life are not flowing freely through the vital pathways of the body (gastrointestinal tract, blood, lymph, nervous system) due to obstructions or restrictions caused by mental, emotional or physical stresses?
What happens when toxins (i.e. unusable food residue, dead tissue cells, chemicals, heavy metals, waste byproducts of normal cellular function and bacteria) are not fully eliminated and start being deposited in our body?
How does it affect our own thinking processes? How does it influence our behavior and our emotions? What effect does it have on reproduction? What effect does it have in our children? Are we being as responsible as we could be?
Can we do better than we have been? Do we want to do better? Do we have what it takes to do better? Are we too lazy? Do we want someone else to do it for us?
"Let the medical insurance company or the government do it" is a frequent answer, except history has shown that putting our well being in the hands of others hasn't worked very well.
When we look around to see who is ultimately responsible for the job, there is no one else but us-the individual that occupies the body. If we own and drive a car, there are certain inherent responsibilities in maintaining the car to a qualitative standard in order to provide ourselves with a sense of security when driving it. We also want to provide that sense of security to any passengers. If we want the sense of security, we have to take the time and spend the money to produce the result we want. As there are always choices available to us, we can also pretend that we are secure and ignore the needs of the car. If we don't pay any attention to the brakes, we may eventually pay a price for our neglect. If we don't maintain fluid levels such as engine coolant and oil, the engine may be damaged by overheating or ultimately be destroyed by seizing completely. If we don't keep it fueled, it will eventually stop.
Abuse and neglect can shorten the life of a car, sometimes substantially. With the body, as well as the car, we have the freedom of choice to cheat and think we're getting away with it. But eventually somewhere down the road there is a higher price to pay.
Unfortunately, it is usually the next generations who eventually get the bill.

Believes there are no sicknesses “per se” but rather “sick individuals”
When you leave a banana peal on the countertop, under the circumstances that no windows or doors are open in the house and no flies are around, after a period of few hours you have dozens of flies roaming around that banana peal. Where do they come from? There is no outside source but rather as the pleomorphic theory explains, they were always part of the living banana in a harmless form and when the conditions of the terrain changed (pealing, removing of the protective cover) they became activated.
History and further research in the 20th century proved beyond any reasonable doubt the validity of Bechamp's theory. Famous physiologist Claude Bernard and later leading bacteriologist and zoologist Guenther Enderlein described that microbes can take on multiple forms within a single life-cycle, similar to the way the caterpillar transforms into a butterfly or how a tadpole turns into a frog. Researcher Erik Enby further noted that these microbes, whether external or pleomorphic can change form and contribute to serious illness WHEN EXPOSED TO A COMPROMISED ENVIRONMENT.
Enderlein explained how certain disease processes are caused by different kinds of microbial growth in the body fluids and cell tissues. He also emphasized the important role poor nutrition plays in causing illness and how eating health-promoting foods such as fruits and vegetables and whole grains can help prevent disease. Furthermore, upon closer research of Pasteur's personal notes, it was discovered that he (Pasteur) wrote his own treatise admitting Bechamp was right about the terrain being the cause of disease. Pasteur recanted his germ theory on his deathbed, realizing that he made a mistake. Yet his germ theory had made such an impact in it's day and matched the consciousness and intentions of the intellectual leading class that the medical establishment developed sciences and medical applications that are still practiced today under the name of allopathic medicine.
The germ theory proves to be a fatalistic one by creating a victim, a powerless and irresponsible patient in the face of this "outside" terroristic aggression (...orange alert) of microorganisms. This means that I as a human being am less powerful than a virus or bacteria. Furthermore as a disempowered living organism, the responsibility of my own life is shifted away from myself and placed into the hands of the Medical Industrial Complex who "luckily" just developed a new drug or procedure able to combat my very own sickness. Bottom line is this, we do not get sick due to "invading germs" because germs are everywhere. We cannot possible escape the microbes. In fact the human body contains more bacteria than cells of it's own...
