COVID19 Pandemic ‘Hoax’ Re-opens Great Germ Theory Debate

Written by John O'Sullivan

The coronavirus pandemic is a tragedy on many levels. Scientifically, at minimum, it exposes the low reliability of computer models.  Something is amiss and critics say we may be due a wholesale re-examination of the consensus science of Germ Theory.

For over 100 years medical science has followed Louis Pasteur’s Germ Theory. Essentially, Pasteur argued that diseases are caused by specific microorganisms which invade our bodies from the outside.

But Pasteur’s rival – a friend and contemporary – Antoine Béchamp proposed an alternative. Instead, Béchamp argued that illness stems from an unhealthy immune system which triggers changes in minute particles of the body that can lead to disease.

Béchamp’s theory was simple, cost-effective and focused on the preventative – pursuing good nutrition, eating a varied and healthy diet, avoiding pollution and being fit and active. It wasn’t a money-spinner.

Instead, pharmaceutical manufacturers saw huge potential in Pasteur’s ideas which presented real money-making opportunities in both preventative and curative medicine by way of developing, marketing and selling expensive drug therapies and vaccinations programs.

Vaccines are very big business: this Feb. 23 CNBC article, for example, describes the vaccine market as six times bigger than it was 20 years ago, at more than $35 billion annually today, and providing a $44 return for every $1 invested in the world’s 94 lowest-income countries.

As a result, for the last century, western medicine has made us dependent on drugs to treat symptoms, effectively minimizing the importance of nutritious food, fresh air, hygiene and sanitation.

But vaccine safety and effectiveness is increasingly problematic and the current COVID19 pandemic may prove a turning point in medical thinking.

The COVID19 pandemic is revealing we are not all equals when it comes to disease infection. We are seeing that healthy immune systems are not succumbing to the disease. It appears the better nourished, fit and healthy you are, the lower your risk of a life-threatening infection.

The table below identifies the key difference between Pasteur’s theory and Béchamp’s:

In dealing with the coronavirus we are seeing that diet modification, by way of taking vitamin supplements – even ingesting a small amount of Hydroxychloroquine (related to Quinine which was was first isolated in 1820 from the bark of a cinchona tree) are working well in fighting the coronavirus.

This evidence may be a boon for the Béchamp’s Host (Cellular) Theory, otherwise called Microzymian Theory.

In her articlePasteur vs Béchamp: The Germ Theory Debate’ (February 06, 2018) Kate Raines offers an excellent examination of both competing theories and should be read widely to better inform as to why our governments may need to review public health policies.

Pasteur vs Béchamp: The Germ Theory Debate

Please read below ‘Pasteur vs Béchamp: The Germ Theory Debate (February06, 2018) Kate Raines:

“Louis Pasteur was a French chemist-turned-microbiologist, who proved the existence of microbes in air. His pioneering studies laid the foundation for the modern-day understanding of diseases, their etiology as well as vaccine development.”1

How that quotation is interpreted—whether as high praise or condemnation—depends on the perspective. Pasteur was not the only scientist who delved into the origins of disease. While he focused on the influence of invading microbes, or what has come to be known as the “germ theory,” his rival Antoine Béchamp, one of the period’s preeminent scientists, was promoting a different theory. Béchamp’s theory, referred to as the “microzymian” theory of disease, has since become known as the “cellular,”2 or “host”3 theory.4

By all accounts, Béchamp was a highly respected scientist whose teachings were accepted as fact by many of Pasteur’s contemporaries.5 So how is it that relatively few people today have even heard the name of Antoine Béchamp and that it is Louis Pasteur’s scientific conclusions that form much of the basis of contemporary medical thinking about infectious disease?

Origins of Germ Theory

The germ theory of disease holds that “specific microscopic organisms are the cause of specific diseases,” a statement that is so pervasive today that it seems self-evident. Historically, however, variations of the germ theory had been around for hundreds of years but had never taken hold. It was not until Pasteur’s work became publicized in the 19th century that it gained widespread acceptance. Reducing the idea of disease to a simple interaction between specific microorganisms and a host, the germ theory minimized the role of environmental factors on illness, conveniently dismissing social responsibility for disease, especially among the poor.

The work of Pasteur and his associates led directly to the acceptance of vaccines by “leading medical scientists—those longing for a sound and simple explanation for the inexplicable.”6

Host (Cellular) Theory Philosophy

Béchamp’s view was that disease-causing germs were essentially altered microzymas… a term he gave to minute particles he considered to be the common stuff of all living things capable of adapting to changing conditions in the body.7 Quoted as saying, “The microzyma is at the beginning and end of all organization. It is the fundamental anatomical element whereby the cellules, the tissues, the organs, the whole of an organism are constituted,”8 Béchamp maintained that disease developed in the presence of an unhealthy environment caused by an unbalanced state in the body. He held that disease could not take hold without a preexisting weakness.9

As summarized and greatly simplified by author Walene James10—and ridiculed by Mark Crislip11 in Science-Based Medicine—Béchamp’s basic message was that:

  1. Disease arises from micro-organisms within the cells of the body.
  2. These intracellular microorganisms normally function to build and assist in the metabolic processes of the body.
  3. The function of these organisms changes to assist in the catabolic (disintegration) processes of the host organism when that organism dies or is injured, which may be chemical as well as mechanical.
  4. Microrganisms change their shapes and colours to reflect the medium.
  5. Every disease is associated with a particular condition.
  6. Microorganisms become “pathogenic” as the health of the host organism. deteriorates. Hence, the condition of the host organism is the primary causal agent.
  7. Disease is built by unhealthy conditions.
  8. To prevent disease we have to create health.

Among those who rejected germ theory, instead championing the influence of diet, climate, ventilation, hygiene and sanitation in causing disease were Florence Nightingale and Rudolf Virchow.

Rudolf Virchow, an early opponent of the germ theory of disease, believed that germs do not cause disease but instead gravitate to the diseased area as scavengers, to feed on and clean up the dead tissue caused by the pathogenic process. Virchow stated in his later years, “If I could live my life over again, I would devote it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat—diseased tissues—rather than causing disease.”12

Western Medicine Rules

Western medicine fiercely protects the germ theory of disease, scorning and dismissing Béchamp’s ideas out of hand. There is no doubt that much of what Béchamp was able to determine has been supplanted now by scientific resources unavailable to him at his time, but that can also be said of Pasteur’s theories. Such a narrow view of disease misses the gist of Béchamp’s teachings: the importance of supporting a strong internal defense system to ward off disease and attain true health rather than relying on drugs and vaccines as a sledgehammer to treat symptoms and attempt to destroy germs.

Many disease-causing microbes are normally present in the body and do not cause disease as a matter of course but are kept at bay in people who have healthy immune systems. Other infectious microbes can spread from person to person via water, air, insect bites or exposure to infected body fluids and have the potential to cause serious complications in an immune compromised host.

    Antoine Béchamp is correct. While a MASSIVE influx of any germ, bacteria or virus can make almost anyone sick, such occurrences in nature are virtually non existent on their own save for man made situations.

    The Chinese have known about the same model as Béchamp for millennia as they had CLEARLY observed over 4000 years ago that it was those who were weak, sedentary (which few were in those days), sick, elderly who got sick while those who were active with good nutrition and healthy rarely did.

    Each year when the mighty yellow River flooded and humidity rates soared in the summer, doctors noticed that those people who were healthy each year never had any health issues.

    At this time, breathing and various breathing sets based on animal movements, breathing patterns and other actions were being practiced by doctors and some scholars to relax their minds and bodies. They noticed that these people in particular never got sick while even some of the healthy non breathing practitioners did but to a much less severe level.

    It was from these early observations and later centuries of trial and error, figuring out the true theories on health and what the human body was truly governed by that led the Chinese to eventually formulate their now famous healing and health regimens such as Chi-gung, meditation, breathing exercises, a Vaast library of herbal knowledge and cures, ALL of which is constantly being backed up and validated by Western science and medicine to this day.

    The Chinese always followed the same basic model as Antoine Béchamp, knowing that it wasn’t external germs that caused disease but rather they’re the RESULT of a disease which causes them to gravitate towards areas of the body with already weakened energy, today understood as areas of low micro voltage.

    This is why the Chinese saying for centuries and teaching the state of your health, activity, vigor and longevity is all tied into and ultimately controlled by the amount, strength, flow and balance of your chi or life force in the body.
    The more you learn to cultivate, preserve and sustain your storage or bioenergy, stronger, healthier and longer you will live.
    The body is basically a huge biological battery and it’s how well were able to store, cultivate and purify that energy that Truly determines how well and how long you’ll live. Most people in the west today GREATLY POLLUTE and waste their life energies through destructive lifestyles such as drinking, smoking and drugs, over working, mental and emotional stress, poor to horrible diets with no nutrition at all, no vitamins and minerals, no electron content, no phytonutrients at all.
    People just focus on the here and now with that YOLO mindset and think the purpose of life is to have fun at all costs and do whatever feels good. They’re actually committing a form of slow suicide by destroying themselves and relying on horrible toxic, destroying Western drugs and doctors only makes it worse!
    Of course the way that Antoine Béchamp and the Chinese advocate requires discipline, work and self denial of certain toxic pleasures that people simply refuse to give up (no sex is not one of them) as many people can’t live without their cigarettes, alcohol, drugs and crap junk food devoid of all real nutritional content, even if it means going to an early, sickly and painful grave…so be it.
    Then when you have a situation like a real pandemic or even just a moderate flu, the results we see here are exactly what happens with so many people dying because they were deceived by Western medical lies and the mostly flawed germ theory of Pasteur.

    Here is another take:
    But there are a number of important facts about the 1918 flu that are not widely known:

    • The 1918 flu was not caused by a virus.
    • The 1918 flu was not contagious and did not spread by direct human-to-human contact.
    • The 1918 flu began on U.S. military bases where soldiers were being trained in wireless telegraphy. It spread throughout the world on ten thousand U.S. Navy ships equipped with state-of-the-art wireless stations. It became much more deadly in September 1918 when the first round-the-clock voice radio station powerful enough to be received in most parts of the world went on the air in New Brunswick, New Jersey in service of the U.S. war effort, thereby launching the modern era of radio communication.
    Efforts by doctors working for the U.S. Public Health Service to prove the contagious nature of the 1918 flu were heroic and resulted in resounding and repeated failure. In November and December 1918 and in February and March 1919, they attempted to infect one hundred healthy volunteers with influenza in the following ways:

    • They put secretions from the mouth, nose, throat and bronchi from hospitalized influenza patients into the nose, throat and eyes of volunteers;
    • They injected blood from sick patients into volunteers;
    • They filtered mucous material from sick patients and injected it under the skin of volunteers;
    • They had volunteers shake hands with sick patients, talk to them, faces close together, for five minutes, then had the patient breathe out as hard as he could while the volunteer, two inches away, was breathing in, then had the patient cough directly into the face of the volunteer, five times.

    None of these volunteers in this experiment got sick in anyway.

    Similar attempts to infect healthy horses with secretions from horses sick with influenza resulted in the same resounding failure.

    These experiments, and other facts about the 1918 flu, as well as about influenza in general, are thoroughly discussed and documented in chapters 7, 8 and 9 of the book The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life (AGB Press 2017, Chelsea Green 2020).

    Historically, influenza was an unpredictable disease that struck without warning and without a schedule and disappeared as suddenly and mysteriously as it had arrived, not to be seen again for years or decades. It did not exist on this earth as an annual disease prior to the worldwide deployment of AC electricity for lights and power that occurred in 1889. Many of the doctors who were flooded with influenza in 1889 had never seen a case before. But influenza has not been absent anywhere on earth since.

    What is most difficult for people to let go of is the notion, so deeply engrained in our society, that a disease is the same as a bacteria or a virus. This way of looking at the world, as a battlefield instead of a community, is wrong. Yes, there is a respiratory virus associated with influenza. No, the virus does not cause the disease. Influenza is a neurological disease that can affect most Efforts by doctors working for the U.S. Public Health Service to prove the contagious nature of the 1918 flu were heroic and resulted in resounding and repeated failure.

    Perspective.
    Lots of deaths due to Covid19?
    in the UK ~99.997% of people have not died of Covid19.

    Pasteur is of great industrial interest. Anyone know if viruses are used in industry? It wouldn’t be possible to sell milk and many other foodstuffs, if we didn’t know how they go off and/or can be produced: cheese, beer, wine… What we eat is also food for bacteria. Not all food can be produced relying on moulds that grow in caves or are self-preserving. And not just him of course, who was it suggested doctors should wash their hands after touching one patient and moving on to the next, such as pregnant women?
