Germs seek their natural habitat – diseased tissue – rather than being the cause of diseased tissue.” - Antoine Béchamp
I’m going out on a limb here to explain my theory about viral spread. I’ve given it much thought. While claiming no special science knowledge. Other then a constant life time of learning. Always reading books. Consuming information. Then going one step further and thinking about that information. Not accepting it all at face value, but, actually considering how or if the information fits together with what has been already learned. What seems sensible. And how it all fits into the world at large. Because, yes, that has to be considered.
So, I spend as much time as as possible outdoors. Walking. Foraging. Herb gathering. And gardening! It’s where we should all spend more time because it keeps us grounded in the real. The time outside/in nature/interacting with plants and animals helps me to understand that yes, I am very much a part of this planet. And I do function in tandem with this planet- It's a symbiosis. (Symbiosis is any type of a close and long-term biological interaction ) This includes our symbiotic relationship with germs and bacteria.
A little background out of the way let's delve a bit into an idea that's been rolling around in my brain for a bit now. I’ve long felt that there was another mechanism to viral spread.. The spread that occurs unimpeded by masks and social distancing. Because if you pay attention you should understand by now... masks and social distancing haven’t made a bit of difference. And they've never been shown too in the past. Just like now. I’ll set aside the extremely problematic PCR test for this post. And just talk of the spread of viruses and bacteria. My suspicion is the connection is done through the microbiota of people and the planet and everything that lives on it. Covid, like any other virus, infects the weak. That includes our less then healthy planet and it’s inhabitants. Somehow the microbiome is the source and our microbiota is the mechanism. I've not shored this up, but, think it's related to terrain theory. Which I came across after pondering the virus/ covid situation for some time. Terrain Theory looks to be more based in reality then the drivel that has been foisted upon us for far too long!
And yes, there will be more reading about this subject as I am awaiting the arrival of two new books- Listed at the end of this report
I’m going to leave wired’s propagandistic terminology out of this report- no name calling
" Béchamp argued that microbes became dangerous when the health of the host—its “terrain” or environment—deteriorated.
His idea that microorganisms are necessary to good health, and that beneficial microbiota are pathogenic under the wrong conditions or in the wrong place, is now the standard view of researchers who study the microbiology of animals and plants. A new science of the microbiome—meaning, simply, the microorganisms in an environment—emphasizes that all plants and animals on Earth evolved in combination with microorganisms and asks how microbiota interact with their hosts. Over the last 17 years, we have learnt that countless functions in living things, from digesting food to regulating the immune system to germinating seeds, rely on microorganisms. More recently still, microbiome science has attracted huge sums of venture capital to fund companies that treat hitherto intractable diseases or swell agricultural yields.
First, beginning in 2001, scientists observed that mice with different microbiota had different biologies, suggesting that resident bacteria could modulate the host’s gene expression. Second, in 2006, researchers demonstrated that gut microbes could cause changes in a host’s phenotype, such as obesity. Finally, gene sequencing technologies developed for the human genome project were turned upon microbes in international projects like the Human Microbiome Project, freeing scientists from the limitations of culturing bacteria and revealing how microbial genes expressed themselves in their hosts. “People realized that [the microbiome] wasn’t some quirky, beautiful thing in biology, but was functionally crucial,” says Sonnenburg.
Microbiome science is a revolution in how humans understand and control biology. Pasteur’s theory of disease bequeathed to medicine a metaphor that germs were constantly besieging animals (battles in wars that were ultimately lost when bacteria overtook a corpse and it decayed). The metaphor was not the microbiologist’s fault; Pasteur knew we wouldn’t be healthy without microorganisms. But as Ed Young explains in his wonderful 2016 book, I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes within Us and a Grander View of Life, “Microbes… were cast as avatars of death. They were germs, pathogens, bringers of pestilence…. [Scientists] discovered the bacteria behind leprosy, gonorrhea, typhoid, tuberculosis, cholera, diphtheria, and plague… Bacteriology became an applied science, which studied microbes in order to repel or destroy them.”
But sterility is impossible in nature. Microbes cover everything and intrude everywhere. Microorganisms flourish at the bottom of the cold sea and in the vents of boiling hot springs; bacteria can even survive in radioactive waste. Between one to ten percent of the mass and half the cells in animals are microbiota. Sterility is also undesirable. Symbionts provide metabolic capabilities lacking in animals, such as vitamin B synthesis in termites and the digestion of grass in cows, and they modulate cellular signaling networks that regulate functions necessary for animal health, receiving in return nutrients and protection. Many plants are equally dependent on microbes: peas, clover, soy, and beans have nodules on their roots that host bacteria, fixing nitrogen from the air in the plant. In payment, the plants feed their commensal friends with sugars.
You, too: Your cells have around 20,000 to 25,000 genes, but your microbiome boasts 500 times more. More than 98 percent of your bacteria can be found in your colon; but other parts of your body have their own colonies where microbes have evolved to survive upon the oily plains of your face, in the humid swamps of your armpits, or on the slick rocks of your mouth. Your microbiota are mostly harmless, but many are functionally important to you also, crowding out more harmful microbes, teaching your immune system to recognize enemies, and influencing behavior like your appetite. One third of human milk is composed of sugars called oligosaccharides, but babies cannot digest them; the sugars are food for microbes, which furnish infants with essential nutrients that grow their brains and proteins that seal their guts.
Microbiologists often urge us to think of the microbiome as an organ, and it is. But the truth is weirder: animal and plants are multi-organismal creatures, composed of both animal or plant cells and microbial cells. We can only understand animals and plants by comprehending how they interact with the communities of microorganisms that live within and on their surfaces. But this insight was originally Béchamp’s; he understood that what we now call “dysbiosis” was just an imbalance or maladaption of the microbiome. He was the first to propose that some cancers were caused by bacteria. He would have been unsurprised to learn that a bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine leads to poor absorption of nutrients, which in turn cause unpleasant or serious symptoms, or that disturbances of the vagina’s microbiome can increase the risk of infection by HIV. In microbiology, the idea of terrain is today quietly resurgent. Janelle Ayres, a professor of immunobiology at the Salk Institute, is seeking to replace antimicrobials, such as vaccines, antivirals, and antibiotics, used to fight infections with the beneficial microbes in our guts for “damage-control therapeutics.”
These kinds of scientific resurrections occur from time to time in a complication of Thomas Kuhn’s episodic model of scientific progress (which holds that science advances as “paradigms” are overthrown when they no longer explain the world). The 18th century French naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck believed that characteristics acquired in life could be inherited by succeeding generations, imagining that the giraffe’s long neck was the result of generations of prodigious stretching. The discovery of the structure of DNA buried Lamarkism, except in the Soviet Union, where it was Stalinist dogma. But over the last fifteen years, a new field called epigenetics has demonstrated that methylation, a chemical modification of DNA induced by the environment, can alter our genes: a remarkable echo of Lamark’s original thesis. (Lamark's thesis is known as epi-genetics- Tossed aside for Darwin's elitist theory it's made a come back)
Sonnenburg cautions, “Many would say we still don't really understand [microbiome] functions now, but we do grasp their importance.” In common with many scientists, he wants to know a few things. First, what is a healthy microbiome anyway? “Humans evolved with an ancestral microbiome, which was lost during industrialization. Could the Western microbiome be a dysbiotic community that predisposes Westerners to chronic diseases?” (yes) Second, how quickly can researchers develop the microbiome for precision healthcare? “It’s individual, it's connected to most of our biology, and it's malleable: it seems perfect.” Finally, Sonnenburg wonders whether we want to rebuild our ancestral microbiome at all. Instead, he speculates, we might optimize our microbiomes for different goals at different points in life. ”A marathon runner might want something different from a pregnant woman, and a patient who needed immunotherapy might want something else.
In other words, can humans cultivate a better terrain for their symbionts? Put so, it doesn’t seem implausible. “Nothing is the prey of death, all is the prey of life,” said Béchamp.Yes, this writer is pushing the idea of new ‘treatments’ based on tailoring microbiomes. Everything has to be exploited for profit- But, you can have a healthier microbiome by eating better, fermenting some food (easily done on a counter top) And getting outdoors regularly. To boost those T cells! To name just a few examples of ways you can take charge of your health.
Anxiously awaiting two books on this subject
This volume contains new editions of two books which have been available only sporadically in the decades since their publication. R. Pearson’s Pasteur: Plagiarist, Imposter was originally published in 1942, and is a succinct introduction to both Louis Pasteur and Antoine Béchamp, and the reasons behind the troubled relationship that they shared for their entire working lives.
Whereas Pearson’s work is a valuable introduction to an often complex topic, it is Ethel Douglas Hume’s expansive and well-documented Béchamp or Pasteur? A Lost Chapter in the History of Biology which provides the main body of evidence. It covers the main points of contention between Béchamp and Pasteur in depth sufficient to satisfy any degree of scientific or historical scrutiny, and it contains, wherever possible, detailed references to the source material and supporting evidence.
Virtually no claim in Ms Hume’s book is undocumented – to have access to more material, one would need to be able to read French, and go to the original source material.
The reader will soon discern that neither Mr Pearson nor Ms Hume could ever be called fans of Pasteur or his ‘science’. They both declare their intentions openly; that they wish to contribute to the undoing of a massive medical and scientific fraud. The publication of this present edition of their work is undertaken in the same spirit.
2nd book: Written by the man himself! The Blood and Its Third Element Paperback – Dec 23 2016 by Antoine Bechamp (Author), David Major (Editor)
The last work by Antoine Béchamp, a man who should be regarded today as one of the founders of modern medicine and biology. During his long career as an academic and researcher in nineteenth century France, Béchamp was widely known and respected as both a teacher and a researcher. As a leading academic, his work was well documented in scientific circles. Few made as much use of this fact as Louis Pasteur, who based much of his career on plagiarising and distorting Béchamp’s research
A replay of history as we see fraud Fauci reprising the role of Pasteur distorting the work of Kerry Mullis by bastardizing his PCR test - as has been stated previously here, by, your truly :)
