Bacteria and Viruses

With the current Covid-19 situation, I would like to clear up some misinformation that we’ve been living with since the time of Pasteur! Most of us are unaware that the “germ theory” popularized by Louis Pasteur is a false assumption. He was going head-to-head with another scientist of his time, Antoine Bechamp.

Bechamp argued that it was the “terrain” of the body and not the “germ”. Depending on the terrain of the body, various bacteria and viruses can exist.

The history of this is very interesting, and can be read in a 350 page book entitled “Bechamp or Pasteur, A lost chapter in the history of biology” published in 1923 by Ethel Douglas Hume. It can be read or downloaded for FREE at: http://www.mnwelldir.org/docs/history/biographies/Bechamp-or-Pasteur.pdf

On his deathbed Pasteur said “THE PATHOGEN IS NOTHING; THE TERRAIN IS EVERYTHING.”

It is my personal belief that bacteria and viruses are the “garbagemen” of our bodies, whose job it is to help remove bad stuff (toxins, etc.) from our bodies! They are pleomorph’s and change to various forms, to tackle the current needs of our bodies.

As the microbiome mostly in our gut, assists with our health, there is also a virome (made up of viruses) with the same task!

We all have bacteria and viruses in our bodies at all times! So if you are ‘testing” for a particular virus, chances are good that you will find it.

So if you want to stay healthy, keep your terrain in top shape, eat right (organic), occasional fasting, exercise, and detox yourself from toxic substances and relationships!

These “pathogens” are here to help! They exist to help us stay healthy!

Water!

Water is probably the most important thing that we consume, but it has to be GOOD WATER!

If we drink toxic water (fluoride, drugs, etc.) then we are probably doing more harm than good.  When I was a kid, we didn’t even think about water, when we were thirsty we drank tap water (bottled water was not invented yet).

The problem is that many of the municipal water supplies in the US are toxic, however, the “safe” standards are met, so nothing is done about it.

The problem is that modern science has proven that these levels pose countless health risks.

There are 160 contaminants that are unregulated, and therefore have  NO LEGAL LIMITS! Frighteningly the EPA  has refused to add any new contaminants to their listing of regulated tap water pollutants in over two decades!  Not doing their job!

My home uses a well with a whole house filtration system, and we drink distilled.  Distilled is great because it helps better flushing toxins out of the body, and it makes my coffee taste better! 🙂  This seems to be good, so we’ll keep it up.  I would recommend using some type of quality filter for your home as well.  We use an Aquasana whole house filter.

If you are interested in checking the quality of your municipal water, go to Environment Working Group https://www.ewg.org/tapwater/.  They have a fairly good list of areas with the found contaminants and filter suggestions.

Manuka Honey – Help with Antibiotic Resistant Bugs.

For those that are unfamiliar with the great health benefits of honey, and/or specifically with Manuka honey, here’s some good information.

From http://www.realfoodforlife.com:

Health Benefits of Honey

1. Prevent cancer and heart disease
It contains flavonoids, antioxidants which help reduce the risk of some cancers and heart disease.

2. Reduce ulcers and other gastrointestinal disorders
Recent research shows that honey treatment may help disorders such as ulcers and bacterial gastroenteritis. This may be related to the 3rd benefit.

3. Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal
“All honey is antibacterial because the bees add an enzyme that makes hydrogen peroxide,” said Peter Molan, director of the Honey Research Unit at the University of Waikato in New Zealand.

4. Increase athletic performance 
Ancient Olympic athletes would eat honey and dried figs to enhance their performance. This has now been verified with modern studies, showing that it is superior in maintaining glycogen levels and improving recovery time than other sweeteners.

5. Reduces a cough and throat irritation
It helps with coughs, particularly buckwheat honey. In a study of 105 children, a single dose of buckwheat honey was just as effective as a single dose of dextromethorphan in relieving nocturnal cough and allowing proper sleep.

6. Balance the 5 elements honey
It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine in India for at least 4000 years and is considered to affect all three of the body’s primitive material imbalances positively. It is also said to be useful in improving eyesight, weight loss, curing impotence and premature ejaculation, urinary tract disorders, bronchial asthma, diarrhea, and nausea.

Honey is referred as “Yogavahi” since it has a quality of penetrating the deepest tissues of the body. When honey is used with other herbal preparations, it enhances the medicinal qualities of those preparations and also helps them to reach the deeper tissues.

7. Blood sugar regulation
Even though it contains simple sugars, it is NOT the same as white sugar or artificial sweeteners. Its exact combination of fructose and glucose actually helps the body regulate blood sugar levels. Some kinds of honey do have a low hypoglycemic index, so they don’t jolt your blood sugar.  Watch this video Sweetener Comparisonwhere I compare stevia, brown rice syrup, honey, molasses, and agave, and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each.

8. Heal wounds and burns
External application of honey has been shown to be as effective as conventional treatment with silver sulfadiazine. It is speculated that the drying effect of the simple sugars and honey’s antibacterial nature combine to create this effect. Studies have shown it to be very successful in healing wounds.

9. Probiotic
Some varieties possess large amounts of friendly bacteria. This includes up to 6 species of lactobacilli and 4 species of bifidobacteria. This may explain many of the “mysterious therapeutic properties of honey.”

10. Strengthen the immune system
Manuka Honey has been found to stimulate the production of immune cells according to a study at the School of Medicine, Cardiff University, UK. Manuka is a favourite of mine.

Manuka honey comes from bees that feed on the Manuka plant in New Zealand, and it is a “super honey” because it has high amounts of methylglyoxal (MG) which is very therapeutic.  All honeys have MG but Manuka has much higher amounts.  Also found as UMF honey (Unique Manuka Factor).  The honey is rated by the level of MG in the honey.  Anything over 10 is considered having therapeutic effects.  It can be as high as 20 percent from higher quality sources.

Manuka is effective against MRSA!  So maybe it should be the go to “antibiotic” of the future!

CBD

 

CBD

CBD is just one of the hundreds of cannabinoids that are present in cannabis, A.K.A. marijuana.  It does have proven health benefits.

There seems to be a lot of confusion out there regarding CBD (Cannabodiol).  Does it really have health benefits?  Is it addictive?  Does it have psychoactive effects?  Is it LEGAL?  1)YES. 2)NO. 3)NO. 4)YES. 

CBD really has health benefits! 

8 Proven Benefits of CBD:
  • Relieves Pain and Inflammation.
  • Has Antipsychotic Effects.
  • Reduces Anxiety.
  • Helps to Fight Cancer.
  • Relieves Nausea.
  • May Treat Seizures and Other Neurological Disorders.
  • Lowers Incidence of Diabetes.
  • Promotes Cardiovascular Health.
  • And many more!

It is NOT addictive!

It has NONE of the psychoactive effects that THC has!

CBD is LEGAL in all states!

Cannabis was recently featured in the 7 part documentary  “The Sacred Plant” where many of the  health benefits were covered.  If you didn’t see it, try to find a copy.

Depending on your disease/problem there are various combinations of  CBD and THC that will work better.

But, like everything, you must checkout the sources of the remedy!  It could be contaminated (pesticides etc.) and work against what you are trying to do!

We use it in our wellness center and have helped many people with many problems.
