In my last post, I discussed the constant alarms from the CDC saying that “the sky is falling” (i.e. another pandemic virus is on the loose). We also discussed the ineffectiveness and dangers of the flu shot, and a few things you can do that will keep you healthy in a safe, effective, and natural way. Now, I’d like to give you a few more details on the story and tell you, in brief, why I’m no longer afraid of germs.
First of all, why would our healthcare leaders cry “pandemic” at the site of every little outbreak? I think the most likely reason is to help their partners in the pharmaceutical industry sell a lot of drugs. The incestuous ties between these various organizations is probably the only thing in this story that really is pandemic. These cries also help to justify the continued existence of the CDC, and therefore these bureaucrat/germ hunters’s jobs. Remember, very few Americans actually die of infectious diseases these days and that is what the CDC was created for.
Whenever the media goes into a frenzy about a germ, the “sheeple” panic and the government has to respond. The only way they know how to respond to such a threat is to stockpile drugs and vaccines. This makes the drug companies (and their investors) very happy, and very rich. Then, as we discussed in the previous post, the story is dropped, and a year or so later a new germ is brought out for us to fear.
The thing we all need to remember is, much like predatory cats, germs prey on the weak—and your fear of germs and the stress of an impending pandemic definitely weakens your immune system. People with strong immune systems don’t even catch let alone die from these germs. But this is actually an oversimplification. The truth is, for the most part, we don’t catch germs; rather our bodies create them. Let me explain.
Shortly after a plant or animal dies, it begins to decay. (In fact, in the case of long-term illness, the decay process begins much sooner than that, as you’ll soon understand.) Where do you think the bugs that cause the decaying process come from? Do you think they’re ever present in the air and at the moment of death they swoop in like vultures to feast on the rotting flesh? No, those bugs are already present inside of that being.
You see, the human body is not sterile—nor is it meant to be. A healthy human body has approximately 100 trillion bacteria (about 4 pounds) living in symbiosis with the 50 trillion or so cells you consider “you.” That means you have about twice as many bacteria in your body as you have cells! These “normal flora” make up a huge part of your immune and digestive systems.
Since bacteria were first discovered, they have been studied, almost exclusively, as germ carcasses; in other words, when they’re dead. That’s because in order to see them using a normal light microscope, they have to be “fixed” (kept in place by burning them to the slide) and then stained. Without the stain, you can’t see them. Electron microscopes blast their subjects with so many electrons that they cannot survive this process either. So the result is, very few microbiologists have ever seen a living bacteria. Now in school, we did study dead people, but that was just the very beginning of our learning about human biology. If we had limited ourselves to that type of study, we wouldn’t understand very much about how people work including how they move, grow, and develop. And so it is with bacteria.
But there have been a handful of pioneer scientists over the years who have devised other ways of visualizing these tiny germs. Royal Rife, for example, developed a light polarizing technique, which caused germs to vibrate and “glow” under his watchful eye. This took the place of staining, and allowed him to see living bacteria. Gaston Naessens, in Canada, has done something very similar. These two men, along with several other independent researchers, have discovered something that should have turned the world of microbiology upside down. They’ve discovered, by studying living bacteria, that these germs have a life cycle that includes up to 13 different stages! (See figure below.) This is a little-known but observable fact known as pleomorphism. The process is somewhat analogous to a tadpole turning into a frog or a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, however, bacteria go up and down the cycle many times during their lives. Where they are in that cycle depends entirely upon the terrain they inhabit—in other words, what type of food is present.

The simplest/most primitive form these germs take on is known by many names (somatids, microzyma, bions, protits, turquoise bodies), but the newest and currently accepted name is a “prion.” You may have heard of these tiny creatures in association with bovine spongiform encephalopathy or “mad cow disease,” but I believe time will show that this is a mistake, because prions are present in all living and all previously living tissues. Prions are essentially immortal and they are thought to be the essential link between the living and the non-living. But what’s most relevant to this discussion is that when necessary, i.e. when the terrain changes, they can become bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
In the cycle of life, everything has a purpose—germs included. Prions, for example, are absolutely necessary for cells to be able to divide. Without them, life would never have taken hold on this planet. Bacteria have a purpose, too. As I started to say earlier, when bacteria come upon dead tissue, they eat it and turn that tissue back into soil. This is how dead plants and animals decay. This recycling process is absolutely necessary for life to continue on earth. It’s a beautiful, self-sustaining system.
The same thing happens when you’re sick. When you have diseased tissue, bacteria move into that area to start the recycling process. But they’re not CAUSING the problem any more than rats CAUSE garbage. They’re merely opportunists, taking advantage of the situation you’ve created. They’re there because you’ve inadvertently created the perfect terrain for bacteria (rather than prions) to live in, just as leaving garbage about creates the perfect terrain for rats. The cause of the problem, however, was something else, like toxins, stress, too much sugar in the diet, etc. These are the things that weaken tissues and create the right environment for these germs.
There are often symptoms that coincide with this process, which we interpret as sickness. Fever, swollen tonsils, mucous, cough… But these symptoms are actually an integral part of the healing process. Each one serves a purpose and is a part of your body’s infinite wisdom. When your doctor swabs your throat and finds bacteria there, he interprets that as an infection and gives you some bug killer (antibiotics). This alleviates your symptoms, which you interpret as a cure, but it also stops the healing process. The tissue is still diseased and the germs will eventually come back, just as rats will, until the garbage is actually cleaned up. After all, that’s part of their job.
When you think about it, this new germ theory explains a lot of things that the old theory leaves unanswered. For example, if germs are present everywhere, why do some people get sick and others don’t? Why do people get sick more often when they’re eating lots of sweets, drinking alcohol, the weather is cold, they haven’t had any sun on their skin for months, and they’re stressed out from Christmas shopping, traveling, etc.? How do you explain that using the old theory?
I’m around sick people all the time and I basically never get sick. The couple of times that I have gotten sick in the past fifteen years or so have been when I fell off my plan and was under incredible stress. By the way, I’ve never had a flu shot and I haven’t taken an antibiotic since 1985.
Does pleomorphism explain all infective processes? No, but it does explain most of them. Even Pasteur, infamous germaphobe that he was, recognized this at the end of his life. So, do you want to continue to believe the drug makers and their cronies and the people who’ve been studying germ carcasses all their lives, or are you ready to embrace a new germ theory where you have the control?
If you’re ready to take control, go to my website www.HealthIsNatural.com and print out a copy of The 20 Steps To Perfect Health™ It’s totally free. You don’t even have to give me your email! Then, start following as many of the steps as you can. The more of these steps you follow, the less sick you will be and the fewer colds and flus you will suffer.
Next time, we’ll discuss what viruses really are and what they do in your body.
