Longevity of medical workers

We all want to live a long and healthy and fulfilling life, so, of some of the famous medical people of last few centuries, and even back to Hippocrates himself, how did they fair and who should we get inspiration from:
Prof Antoine Bechamp 1816-1908 (91)microbiology , medicine Sir John Weir royal physician 1879-1971 (91) homeopath Florence Nightingale 1820-1910 (90)Nursing Hippocrates 460-370BC (90) father of medicine

Pliny the Elder 23-79AD (56)med Antoine Lavoisier 1743-1794 (51) beheaded, chemistry Pedanius Dioscorides 40-90AD (50)med
Paracelsus 1493-1541 (47) med, didn't fair so well, but certainly left his mark.
Rene Laennec 1781-1826 (45) med, stethoscope
Nicolas Culpeper 1616-1654 (38) herb med, he may have been shot in a duel that eventually did him in, he did leave his mark also
Looks like Professor Bechamp was the longest lived, funny how we don't hear about him? Hippocrates ("let food be your medicine and medicine be your food") a close 2nd


'In the particular instance what was involved was the role and importance of the host organism. Microbes altered their forms in response to environmental stress. Disease microbes responded in this way to unfavorable or hostile conditions in the host organism. Pleomorphism meant that the host was an active participant in infection and disease- in contrast to Koch and the monomorphists who held the microbe to be all-powerful, the host organism a passive victim. Pleomorphism meant downgrading the microbe, since the host, by resisting the latter’s onslaught, could alter its characteristics.'
What do you think? What or the two interpretations makes sense to you?

Fibre, it's good for you

Dietary fibre is essential for the health of the microbiome (gut bacteria) and therefore the human body. A largley undigestible carbohydrate, fibre comes in 2 main forms – soluble and insoluble. Fibre does not add to the kilojoule intake of the diet.
Soluble fibre is found in fruit and vegetables and some cereals like oats, barley, psyllium, linseed, slippery elm powder and legumes like beans, lentils, peas.
Insoluble fibre is more resistant to digestion, sometimes referred to as roughage. It is fermented by gut bacteria to produce fatty acids essential for the health of the mucous membrane of the gut wall. Foods like wheat and rice bran & skins of vegetables and fruits, nuts are rich in insoluble fibre and necessary to prevent constipation, adding bulk to the stool and speeding up bowel transit time.
The benefits of a high fibre diet include, lower levels of constipation, haemorrhoids, diverticular disease, bowel polyps, bowel cancer, and lower risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, gallbladder disease, obesity, diabetes
Foods that are high in fibre tend to be low in fat and have a lower glycaemic index and loading, so may be helpful in weight reduction and diabetic diets.
The Australian Heart Foundation recommends adults consume 30-35g daily, keep in mind some traditional human diets consume over 100g daily. Children should aim for 15-20g daily and elderly should focus on a high intake due to the slowing of the digestive system.
Check with your naturopathic practitioner as to what would be the best approach to slowly increase your dietary fibre intake. Keep in mind meat, eggs, fatty foods, fast foods and sugar are very low in fibre.
Some examples of fibre in food;
Wholemeal flour 14g fibre in 1 cup
Porridge, cooked 3.5g fibre in 1 cup
Muffin/cake 1g fibre
Prunes x6 4.5g fibre
Lentils 7g fibre in 1 cup
Call in and ask for a handout for more fibre info


Although [cortisone] is the universal symptom-reliever par excellence, it achieves alleviation by a mechanism which indiscriminately suppresses adaptive phenomena. It suppresses many of the responses to injury: the desirable as well as the undesirable, the reparative as well as the destructive. As a result of this indiscriminate action it tends to mask the course of the basic disease in such a way that the physician is left completely in the dark on what is going on. No other drug used for symptomatic abatement is more dangerous from this point of view ... Cortisone provides mainly symptomatic and occasional supportive relief and it cures nothing ... It is possible that the future will offer still better agents of this type, but regardless of the basis of their superiority, as long as they operate by suppressing universal and fundamental biologic phenomena the response of the organism to stimulation and basic protective reactions—the inherent disadvantages of cortisone will not be eradicated by molecular manipulation.—Walter Modell, 1961


"In the sciences, people quickly come to regard as their own personal property that which they have learned and had passed on to them at the universities and academies. If someone else comes along with new ideas that contradict the Credo and in fact even threaten to overturn it, then all passions are raised against this threat and no method is left untried to suppress it. People resist it in every way possible: pretending not to have heard about it; speaking disparagingly of it, as if it were not even worth the effort of looking into the matter. And so a new truth can have a long wait before finally being accepted."--Goethe

Biological Terrain

There are a few factors that are responsible for the maintenance of a healthy body or healthy internal “terrain”. I’ll list them below then briefly explain their function and importance for our health.
pH balance: This is the measurement of hydrogen ions in the tissues and fluid, or in other words what is acid and what is alkaline. The stomach has the lowest pH in the body, which is needed in the process of digestion. Our blood is approximately 7.4, slightly alkaline, and that doesn’t vary much, we are in trouble if it does. Biological processes produce acids and since we don’t manufacture alkaline elements in the human body we need to ingest them from our diet primarily. In some quarters it is thought the balance should be approximately 80% alkaline foods, 20% acid foods in order to keep the balance in the tissues.
Electric/magnetic charge: Loss of electrical charge on the surface of the red blood cells, sometimes referred to as rouleaux. This causes the cells to become “sticky” or “stackup”.
Toxicity: is where products of metabolism or other toxic elements are not sufficiently eliminated from the body. The lymphatic system plays a major role in this process. Electrical charge and pH plays an important role in this process.
Low oxygen: inadequate oxygenation throughout body tissues is another factor in contributing to an imbalanced “sick” biological terrain.
Stagnation: Slowing or stoppage of colloidal body fluids between cells is another factor that leads to a breakdown in the health of the tissues and disease which pathogenic bacteria are created through pleomorphism, a naturally occurring process intended to free the human system from accumulations of pathogenic and mucoid matter.
Nutritional Statis: There are volumes and volumes written on this subject. The main points are, nutrients in a colloidal form from mainly fresh plant food grown in nutrient rich soil has been pretty much determined as the best lifestyle choice for humans, for example then Meditteranean diet/lifestyle like those on Sardinia or other parts of the Meditteranean have shown over time to remain “disease-free” throughout life this will provide all the necessary elements.
We are coming to a point in human history and evolution if you like, where the real germ theory and the “new” biology is starting to re-emerge, and an understanding what micro-organisms really do and what their function really is in the human body and life in general. Unfortunately mainstream sciences have been reluctant to entertain the idea that germs don’t cause disease, that germs have a pleomorphic life cycle that feed on diseased sickly body substances.
It’s my hope that this changes so we can all live disease free lives from start to finish.

Aluminium salts, Sodium fluoride and your body


Aluminium is the most abundant metal in the earth’s crust and makes up about 8%. Bauxite is the main source of aluminium ore, but the aluminium is difficult to remove, it requires large amounts of electricity to accomplish this. The main byproduct is the highly toxic sodium fluoride, which is put in our water supply and toothpastes in the belief that it will enhance the strength of our teeth. Naturally occurring Calcium fluoride in small amounts in our food and water is the form that nature intended us to consume this essential element, not from an industrial waste product. pH in the mouth is potentially the most important factor in teeth health, teeth eating bacteria love it when the pH drops and sets up an acidic environment for them to thrive.

Keep in mind too that aluminium salts are an adjuvant(additive) in most if not all vaccines in order to setup an inflammatory response. Does that material find its safe way out of the body via bowel, urine or lymph/skin? Aluminium salts are also contained in a lot of antiperspirants and body deodorants.
