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.
