Do Germs Really Cause Disease?
Did you know that it's never been truly proven - beyond a shadow of a doubt - that germs are the real originator of disease? Sure, it seems like they are, and Louis Pasteur's germ theory of disease has been around long enough that most people assume that it's true. However, the germ theory has never really been proven, and there are many excellent doctors and scientists out there who think it's basically ridiculous!
So, what is the germ theory, and how do we know that it is probably untrue? The excellent book Healing Our Children has some answers that you might find interesting:
The germ theory essentially says that microorganisms like bacteria and viruses are the true cause of disease. Each disease, apparently, has its own microorganisms, which can be passed from one person to the next through bodily fluids, handshakes, sneezes, and dirty toilet seats. It's an easy thing to believe, and it means that we're never really responsible for our own diseases, as long as we wash our hands and take the medicine the doctor prescribes.
Most people now accept this hundred-year-old theory as fact, but the fact is that it remains nothing more than a scientific theory. There's really no way to prove that germs are the true cause of disease.
The real cause of disease
Another view on the germ theory, put forward by Antoine Bechamp, among other qualified scientists and doctors, actually note that germs are related to disease, but not in the way that we might think. Here's how it works:
You have germs in your body all the time. You're practically swimming in them right now, whether you're reading this in the comfort of your own home, at the local park, or even at a hospital! Some germs, we know, are actually good. For instance, the microorganisms in your intestines are actually necessary to helping your body absorb nutrients fully, and without them, you can experience a host of digestive problems and other ailments.
So, if you have germs in your body all the time, when do you become sick? This theory says that you become sick when the landscape of your body - you internal environment - causes germs that would otherwise be harmless or even helpful - to morph into the disease-agents we think of whenever we hear the word "germs." That's why when you examine a person who has the flu or a cold, you see that he has bacteria or viruses that seem to be causing the problem.
However, here the germs aren't the source of the problem - they're merely one of many symptoms. The true problem is your body trying to clean up its interior landscape so that you can be whole and healthy again. This cleanup involves getting rid of various built-up toxins in the system, by burning them out through fever, getting them through the skin as in a rash, or even expelling them forcefully as in diarrhea or when you sneeze!
What can cure us?
This theory of disease has been shown in many cases and by many brilliant scientific minds to be the truth, but why don't many people accept it?
The main reason is that we don't want to accept personal responsibility for our diseases. According to Healing Our Children, "In this new paradigm for disease, there is a common thread. Our behaviors are the cause of disease. If our behaviors can cause or significantly contribute to disease, then how can one separate the diseased state from the patient who suffers from the disease, as if the patient has nothing at all to do with its creation?"
What can cure us?
The fact is, that the patient and the disease cannot be separated, and in our world that lacks personal responsibility, this is why the germ theory will probably never be broken in the mainstream or medical community!
What can cure us?
But, our purpose here is to talk about parenting and raising healthy, whole, vibrant children. So what does the germ theory have to do with parenting? Everything!
Now, instead of protecting your children from so-called germs and pathogens that would harm them without your knowledge, consent, or responsibility, you can take back responsibility for the health of your children! You alone are responsible for shaping that interior environment in your child so that it will be whole and healthy and won't need disease to cleanse it from toxins and other problems. When it comes to parenting healthy children, the germ theory simply leads to more and more mistakes and less and less responsibility. The truth, on the other hand, helps us see that we can be empowered to make the right types of decisions that will enable our children to be fully functional, vibrant, and alive human beings who are completely perfect and healthy!
