It appears that today we are being deliberately misled when it comes to medical issues. It is impossible that we can live in our bodies all of our lives and know so little about how it works. We have been subject to ignorance and greed, mostly greed, for a long time by the medical community and now it seems they are up in arms against us - determined that we should depend on deadly pills and potions from the womb to the tomb.

Currently our medical establishment operates under what is called Louis Pasteur's (1822-1895) Germ Theory of Disease. Pasteur's Germ Theory states that viruses, bacteria, fungii, and mold invade our bodies and are the direct cause of illness. The Germ Theory has been accepted as truth in England and in America since the 19th century. It is firm, intractable and so entrenched into our collective subconscious that we never even think to question our doctor when he tells us that a virus or bacteria has made us sick.

And just as Socrates was poisoned for his theories and Galileo was imprisoned for his, today we see the wholesale disregard for alternative medicines and even immoral legislation prohibiting their use such as the Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive (THMPD) which goes into effect in the EU on April 1, 2011.

It is not common knowledge that germs and viruses have no influence on live cells and tissue, whatsoever. They seek out dead, diseased and dying tissue in which to multiply and flourish. Armed with this knowledge, we would be in a much better position to protect our health - but that would then present a problem for the modern medical establishment because we wouldn't be forced to pay for pills and potions to destroy disease and bring us back into a healthful state.

What Pasteur gave us with his 'Germ Theory' was the ability for the global mega-medical complex to stretch and grow into the monster that it has become today. This cartel is now organized around the American Medical Association (AMA) to use the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to destroy every stitch of knowledge we have concerning alternative medicines. In America our own FDA is being used as a strong-arm policing force for Big Pharma, and it is fully sanctioned by our government.

While the greatest control lies with the most wealth, naturally the trillion-dollar-a-year pharmaceutical industry, this cartel also includes the National Institute of Health (NIH), the Centers For Disease Control (CDC), hospitals, and research facilities. The are all, in true conspiratorial style, in cahoots to rob you of your health and your money. And it has worked swimmingly for over 150 years.

But as Bechamp pointed out with his "Cell Theory of Disease", it is not the bacteria themselves that produce disease in the human body, but by a combination of four things:

1. Your body's acid/alkaline balance (pH)
2. Your body's electric/magnetic charge (negative or positive).
3. Your level of poisoning (toxicity).
4. Your nutritional status.

Symptomatic of diseased tissue is a low oxygen environment. All of the above conditions are always accompanied by an oxygen deficiency at the cellular level. It is estimated that some 80% of people do not get sufficient amounts of oxygen to maintain a healthy body.

It is important to remember that the human body uses oxygen in all its process. Respiration, digestion, perspiration (releases toxins), urination and defecation, and even your red blood cells require oxygen to multiply and stay healthy enough to perform the myriad of jobs with which they are tasked.

Under the right conditions, improper eating habits, stress, lack of oxygen, lack of exercise, many opportunistic microbes will find their way into your body and set up residence. While not all of them will be directly toxic to you, many of them will and many others will release secondary toxins. Many times healthy bacteria can change into yeast, yeast into fungii and fungii into mold.

We have even been trained to call these germs and bacteria pathogens. A pathogen by definition is a disease-causing organism. But when you understand that these don't actually cause disease, it becomes a moot point.

What we are taught to believe is a disease is usually just the symptom of a disease. And this is where our modern medical complex has failed miserably - in treating symptoms rather than actual causes of diseases.

It is important to be clear. In an unhealthy body germs, viruses, bacteria, fungii and yeast will usually abound. They are not the causes of the body becoming diseased. They have just migrated to the diseased area of your body in order that they can propagate and survive. Once the body is returned to balance, these microbes can no longer live inside your body.

Unfortunately most doctors do not even pretend to cure the human body anymore. Their first question is usually, "Where does it hurt?" This allows him to treat the pain without spending precious time looking for any underlying problem to the pain. It also allows him to get paid for that office visit and if you develop more serious problems later, as you probably will, well that will be another office visit that he can get paid for.

Rudolf Virchow, father of the germ theory, 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." Pasteur and Paul Ehrlich (1854-1915) jointly gave to the civilized world the Germ Theory of Disease before vitamins, trace elements, and other nutrients had even been discovered. We are constantly breathing in some 14,000 germs and bacteria per hour. If germs are so harmful, why aren't we all dead?

Pierre Jacques Antoine Béchamp, M.D., (October 16, 1816 - April 15, 1908) one of the world's foremost bacteriologists and Pasteur's contemporary, made great scientific discoveries and some of the greatest minds of his day accepted his theories and findings as definite established facts. Béchamp attained so many achievements that it took eight pages of a scientific journal to list them when he died. He also gave us The Cell Theory which states that, "Germs and viruses do not make us sick... they merely seek their natural habitat." Meaning that a body that is out-of-balance for any of the four reasons above will attract bacteria, viruses, fungus, and even mold to the already diseased tissue inhabiting that body.

What makes Pasteur's Germ Theory so dangerous is that it seems so obviously true. But it is true only secondarily. Bechamp said "There is no doctrine so false that it does not contain some particle of truth. It is thus with microbian doctrines." Béchamp discovered micro-organisms, small ferment bodies--the basic structure of cell life; and that germs definitely are the result, not the cause of disease. Through his experiments he showed that the vital characteristics of cells and germs are determined by the terrain in which their micro-organisms feed, grow and multiply in the human body. Both the normal cell and germ have constructive work to do. The cells organize tissues and organs in the human body. Germs cleanse the human system and free it from accumulations of pathogenic waste.

In the primary stages of pneumonia infection, for example, the bacteria present are streptococci but as blood cells and tissues further disintegrate, the "streps" turn into the staphylococcus--changing into forms native to their new surroundings of dead tissues. Bacteria do not have any action on live cells; only dead cells. That's why in many cases of pneumonia; the pneumococci don't appear on the scene until 36 to 72 hours after the onset of the disease.

Béchamp's biological work might then have revolutionized medicine with profound insight into the nature of life. But in a political world, he found himself up against Pasteur who was a skillful politician with wealthy connections. Antoinne Béchamp was a scientist, while apothecary Pasteur was a chemist with no education in life sciences, and as an adversary, he plagiarized the research of Béchamp, distorted it, and submitted it to the French Academy of Science as his own! And by making Béchamp's premature research public, Pasteur was acclaimed as a scientific genius.

Pasteur was also responsible for much of the animal experimentation in medical research during that time. Pasteur used preparations made from the diseased tissues of previously sick animals, thus making the injected ones sick. This gave the appearance that a germ caused a disease, when if fact these preparations were extremely poisonous. This is not a scientific procedure, but simply demonstrates the fact that you can make someone sick by poisoning his or her blood.

Based on his theory of micro-organisms, Béchamp warned emphatically against such direct and artificial invasion of the blood.

But then, just as today, no one is listening to Pierre Jacques Antoine Béchamp.

Author's Bio: 

I am the owner of The Oxygen Therapy Program. I started this program about 2 years ago because I looked around my world as I was entering my golden years, all I could see was pain, pills, and despair. I knew there was a better answer to what I saw my friends suffering through. I believe that growing older doesn't have to mean growing sicker. We can still grow older gracefully and with dignity. I refuse to enter my golden years, racked with pain, pill-popping, spent, bent and broken. I hope you join me!
