Boost your immune system before winter

With the colder weather again approaching and the inevitable cold and flu season, those of us with compromised immune function may well want to consider boosting our immune system with time honoured medicinal herbs. Herbs have always been with us. Herbs like echinacea, astragalus, andrographis all have proven ability to boost our immune cells that help to keep us free of infection. These types of herbs can be used for acute and chronic conditions, check with your qualified herbal practitioner what is best for you, and remember if a liquid preparation doesn't suit you, there are plenty of other ways to dose yourself. Don't wait until symptoms arise, act now so you can enjoy the winter months.

Make sure you get out from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind to refreshen your connection to nature. photo taken by Iain Maclean, Marion Bay on Tasmania’s east coast


Understanding the scientific work of Nikolai Kozyrev and Nikolai Tesla and the fundamental energy of the universe, couple that with the work of Antoine Bechamp and even the work of Wilheim Reich are we starting to see how the universe, time, gravity and life works. Lots more work required to do really uncover the mysteries of zero point energy and the “step-downs” into physical life of the microzyma, protit, bion.

The micro biome, the very essence of our humanity, evolution, survival, ignore it at your peril.

Where to from here in medicine and healing?

Since the body is permeated by this force, it must be regarded as “ a homogeneous and harmonious whole.” The pioneers of naturopathy studied the whole and not only the parts. “We cannot injure one part of it without damaging other parts, and often the entire organism.”
Health results from an unimpeded flow of vital force in the body, from harmony among the components. Disease represents loss of harmony caused by ascendency of the “destructive principle” in nature “that principle which disintegrates and destroys existing forms and types.”
More concretely, both acute and chronic disease reflect lowered vitality, caused the continuing accumulation of waste matter and toxins in the body and due ultimately to poor diet, overwork, excesses of various kinds “...the use of alcoholic and narcotic stimulants, drugs, vaccines, antitoxins, accidental poisoning, and last but not least, to the suppression of acute diseases (nature’s cleansing and healing efforts) by poisonous drugs and surgical operations.”
What is commonly called ‘acute’ disease is in reality the result of Nature’s efforts to eliminate from the organism waste matter, foreign matter, and poisons.
Every so-called acute disease is the result of a cleansing and healing effort of Nature.
The real disease is lowered vitality, abnormal composition of the vital fluids (blood & lymph) and the resulting accumulation of waste materials and poisons.
The allopathic school has a wrong understanding of this process, mistaking cause for effect and confusing the ‘disease’ with the response of the vital force.
“What the Old school of medicine calls the disease, we look upon as the cure.
The physician met support the healing thrust of the organism. Healing is effected by the vital force, and the physician can only assist.
Divided Legacy, Harris Coulter

Materialism vs Vitalism

“The theory of materialism, rising in the 17th century, holds that the only existing thing is matter, everything is composed of material and all phenomena (including consciousness, human soul and spirit) are the results of material interactions. In other words, matter is the only substance.”
Scientific materialism (physicalism) became the philosophical position of the early 20th century. The main statement of physicalism is that there are no kinds of things other than physical things.
Within naturopathy there is the assumption of the vital force (called by many things in different human cultures).
“Crude matter, instead of being the source of life is only an expression of the Life Force.”
This force is a part of the “constructive principle” in nature, “that principle which builds up, improves, and repairs.”

Pleomorphism and bacteria in the blood confirmed

“In our search for spirochetes involved in Alzheimer’s disease, we observed pleomorphic bacteria in the blood of healthy human subjects by dark-field microscopy. This was a surprising finding since it is generally acknowledged that the bloodstream in healthy humans is a sterile environment except when there is a breach in the integrity of the tissue membranes. However, the concept of the occurrence of bacteria in the blood of healthy humans is now more plausible because of cultivation-independent laboratory approaches.”

Germ Theory vs Cellular Theory

Scientifically, who was right, who was wrong, which do you believe to be true?

GERM THEORY from Pasteur
  • 1.Disease arises from micro-organisms outside the body.
  • 2.Microorganisms are generally to be guarded against.
  • 3.The function of microorganisms is constant.
  • 4.The shapes and colours of microorganisms are constant
  • 5.Every disease is associated with a particular microorganism
  • 6.Microorganisms are primary causal agents.
  • 7.Disease can "strike" anybody.
  • 8.To prevent disease we have to "build defences".

 CELLULAR THEORY from Professor Bechamp
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.

'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.
