Germ Terrain Theory
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.
