The Cause of Disease & Healing Disease

Summary: Disease is not caused exclusively by germs that enter the body from the outer world, nor is it usually caused by genetics as defective DNA inherited from our parents. Disease is caused by our modernized way of living, toxins in the environment and in our foods, a deficiencey of nutrients, and negative or unresolved feelings. This means, that you can be empowered to heal and prevent disease. To find real healing, it is important to align with a higher power,  "Show me, Father, the real reason for my difficulties, so that I can solve them."

The Germ Theory as the Cause of Disease, The Current Medical Paradigm

Louis Pasteur, Germ Theory of Disease
Louis Pasteur

In the 1860's a theory became cemented in our minds, that germs cause disease. Hailed as one of the most important discoveries of modern science, we supposedly had found the real cause of disease. Disease arises from microorganisms outside the body. These microorgamisms do not change, and anybody can be a victim of disease.

The problem with the germ theory, is that, we do not have control over our fate. The second problem is that we have made germs into the enemy. This is akin to the old way of thinking, that evil spirits cause disease.

The Cellular Theory of Disease, The Lost Cause of Disease

Antoine Bechamp, Germs present in Disease State
Antoine Bechamp

French microbiologist, Antoine Bechamp, Professor of Medical Chemistry and Pharmacy at the University of Montpelier, was a contempory of Mr. Pasteur. Bechamp, along with Claude Bernard had a different idea about germs. They believed that germs where pleo-morphic, that they changed depending on the terrain. This means that disease usually arises from within the body, that healthy microorganisms exist within the body, and microorganisms change and transform based on their environment. Microorganisms become dangerous when there are unhealthy conditions within the body.

If Dr. Bechamps theory is correct, then our health is a direct reflection of the conditions of the body, and thus we are responsible for our health.

Germs Do Evolve

Bacteria Magnified
Staphylococcus aureus bacteria magnified about 10,000x
Dr. Bechamps theory of disease was later been added upon, researchers such as Royal Rife, discovered that E. Coli bacteria can evolve into salmonella typhi then into, mycobacterium tuberculosum then into yeast forms and eventually into cancer causing agents, BX and BY . Mr. Rife also discovered he could heal diseases using vibrations. His work was subsequently destroyed by the American Medical Association when he did not come to an agreement with them about selling them his technology.

The Health of Your Cells Has to do with The Environment They Live In

We even find this truth echoed in anatomy books, “if the concentration (of fluid outside the cell) changes, so as to contain too much or too little of these substances(nutrients), the cells will become sick and act abnormally and eventually begin to die.” Jacob, S. & Francone, C. Elements of Anatomy and Physiology. Philadelphia: 1989: 27.

If Germs do not cause disease, or rarely cause disease, then what does cause disease? Let's ask the experts

The Ancient Yellow Emperors Classic on Internal Medicine, Tao (Way of Being)

Emporers Picture, Disease and Tao
Yellow Emperors Classic of Internal Medicine

Question: “I have heard that in ancient times the people lived to be over a hundred years, and yet they remained active and did not become decrepit in their activities. But nowadays people reach only half of that age and yet become decrepit and failing.”

Answer: In ancient times people understood the “Tao” (the way of being) and patterned themselves after the “Yin and Yang” the two divine principles of creation, masculine and feminine, whose existence is reflected in nature.

Hippocrates, Father of Western Medicine - The Body Can Heal Itself

Hippocrates, Nature Heals

Hippocrates believed in vis medicatrix naturae - which I translate as "The Force of Nature Heals"

He defined disease as suffering, and strain.

"Thy food shall be thy medicine, thy medicine shall be thy food."

Disease has to do with the environment. This could include food, exercise and the amount of rest.

To Summarize, we have two contrasting theories of disease. The germ theory, the modern theory that says that we are hardly responsible for our health, because germs are what cause disease. The second theory, based on the Cellular Theory of disease, says, that we are responsible for our health, and that germs appear in a diseased environment. Ancient teachings support this principle. Disease happens when we are somehow out of alignment with our environment.

The Modern Paradigm of Medicine is Deeply Flawed Because Western Medicine Promotes and Causes Disease

Western Medicine is the #1 Cause of Death in the United States

Carolyn Dean, Death by Medicine
Carolyn Dean, MD, ND

Death By Medicine by, By Gary Null, PhD; Carolyn Dean MD, ND; Martin Feldman, MD; Debora Rasio, MD; and Dorothy Smith, PhD

A definitive review of medical peer-reviewed journals and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. This fully referenced report shows the number of people having in-hospital, adverse reactions to prescribed drugs to be 2.2 million per year. The number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections is 20 million per year. The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million per year. The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million per year.

The most stunning statistic, however, is that the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year. It is now evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US.

Pharmecutical Companies, Through the 'Business With Disease' are charged with Genocide

Matthias Rath, MD

"Complaint against Genocide and other crimes against humanity committed in connection with the pharmaceutical business with disease."

"Throughout the 20th century, the pharmaceutical industry was built and organized with the goal of controlling healthcare systems around the world by systematically replacing natural, non-patentable therapies with patentable and therefore profitable synthetic drugs."

"They deliberately defined the human body as their market place in order to generate further wealth."

"The accused are responsible for the deaths of hundreds of millions of people who continue to die from cardiovascular disease, cancer and other diseases that could have been prevented and largely eliminated long ago.

This premature death of millions of people is neither the result of coincidence nor negligence. It has been willfully and systematically organized on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry and its investors with the sole purpose to expand a global drug market worth trillions of dollars."

Conclusion - We Need a New Health Paradigm that explains the Cause of Disease

It is possible to become infected from substances outside the body, viruses, or other possibly harmful material, however, this is not the cause of disease in most cases. We are constantly exposed to bacteria, and it does not make us sick, unless our immune system is compromised. Disease is primarily a result of a cellular imbalance.

Toxemia, Toxins in the Body Cause Disease

J.H. Tilden, Doctor, Toxemia
J.H. Tilden, MD

“I resolved either to quit the profession or to find the cause of disease.Toxemia Explained page 21

Disease happens when the elimination of waste products becomes blocked. Normal cellular metabolism creates waste products. What we call a disease, is actually a crisis of toxemia, it is your body taking efforts to remove embedded toxins that are from a wrong way of living.

"There is no hope that medical science will ever be a science" because it separates the disease from the person. Whereas, the disease and the person are indeed connected.

Disease is healed when the causes are removed. The causes of disease are habits of stimulation, such as coffee, chocolate, alcohol, sugar and other foods that we use to stimulate and excite ourselves with. Fear, and other emotions, along with other excessive behaviors may count as stimulating habits.

Sneezing, coughing, irritation, pain, fever and so forth, represent the bodies attempt to cleanse the toxic elements, and return to balance again, these are usually good things, and should be encouraged, not suppressed.

Dr. Tilden advocates hot bathes, fasting, enemas and rest.

Food Is your Best Medicine, Food can Be Used to Heal Disease

Henry Bieler, Doctor, Foods is Medicine
Henry Bieler, MD

"The organic sodium in zucchini, as well as in summer and crook-neck squash, is the most ideal source of refurbishing a sodium-exhausted liver."

"As a practicing physician for over fifty years, I have reached three basic conclusion as to the cause and cure of disease.."

1. "[D]isease is caused by a toxemia.."
2. "[I]n almost all cases the use of drugs in treating patients is harmful."
3. "[D]isease can be cured through the proper use of correct foods."

Lack of Proper Nutrition is the Cause of Physical Degeneration and Decay

Weston Price
Weston A. Price, DDS

"Life in All Its Fullness, Is Mother Nature Obeyed."

Degenerative Diseases and many so called Infectious Diseases (Tuberculosis, Tooth Decay), are a result of an inadequate diet.

Primitive human beings, living on their native diet are relatively free from disease. Why does our modern civilization have so many diseases, especially tooth decay, when our ancestors did not, something must be wrong?

Modernized foods such as processed sugars in the forms of jams, syrups and sweets, along with white flour used to create breads, and vegetable fats, lead to a diseased state and cause dental carries, this is the "white plague"

We can look at the successful diets of healthy people around the planet, analyze them with scientific tools, and determine what we can eat to live in superb health.

Healthy primitive people ate foods that had several times more nutrients than we eat today. Especially lacking in our modern diet, are fat-soluble activators and vitamins, these are primarily found in animal fats.

Health begins prior to the time of conception, and is created primarily through the nutrient contents of the sperm and the egg.

Mental problems, crime, and other social dysfunctions can usually be traced to a nutritional injury in the womb, this is obvious by looking at the disturbed facial development of the insane, backward, and the violent criminal.

If our modern civilization is to survive, we must utilize the knowledge of our "primitive" ancestors, so that we can regain our health. A change in nutrition for the parents to be, will also likely reduce or eliminate vast problems in society, anything from birth defects, to crime.

Weston Price Provides us with Anthropological Evidence about the Cause of Disease

It should be a matter of deep alarm that human beings can degenerate physically so rapidly by the use of the dietary products used so generally by modern civilization.

Deficient Aboriginies
©Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation

"The rapid degeneration of the Australian Aborigines after the adoption of the government's modern foods provides a demonstration that should be infinitely more convincing than animal experimentation. It should be a matter not only of concern but deep alarm that human beings can degenerate physically so rapidly by the use of a certain type of nutrition, particularly the dietary products used so generally by modern civilization."

"Wherever the primitive Aborigines have been placed in reservations and fed on the white man's foods of commerce dental caries has become rampant."

It has been my personal experience that a majority of disease is caused by a fundamental mismanagement of the environment, thus disease can be healed with proper management of the environment, elimination of toxins in: the air, food, water, soil, medicines, cleaning products, and soaps and conditioners along with the use of proper nutrition by eating whole and nutrient dense foods are a primary step towards healing.

We Can Live Disease Free

Aajonus Vonderplanitz, Living without Disease
Aajonus Vonderplanitz

"That caused me to develop Multiple Myeloma (blood and bone cancers). Multiple Myeloma survivors are less than 0.01%..I chose to die rather than be completely crippled for the rest of my short life. At that point I had had 7 'incurable' diseases."

Raw foods healed Aajonus of these diseases. When 2.5 years later he got sick again, in an unusual experience, some coyotes brought him a fresh dead rabbit, he ate it raw, it created remarkable health improvements. Since then, he has been eating raw animal products such as, fish, beef, lamb, chicken, milk, eggs, and butter.

"The collective egoic mind is the most dangerously insane and destructive entity to inhabit this planet."

"By the end of the century, the number of people who died a violent death at the hands of their fellow humans would rise to more than one hundred million."

Ancient religious teachings show us that "the ‘normal’ state of mind of most human beings contains a strong element of what we might call dysfunction or even madness."

"The Mind is Maya" Maya is the veil of delusion.

"According to the Buddha, the human mind in its normal state generates dukkha, which can be translated as suffering, unsatisfactoriness, or just plain misery."

"Ultimately, what we perceive as external reality or the world is an outward reflection of our state of consciousness."

"True power is within, and it is available to you now"

"Love is the very foundation, beauty and fulfillment of life."

"Love is our true essence. Love has no limitations of caste, religion, race or nationality. We are all beads strung together on the same thread of love."

"I saw children of some families lying around, tired and starving, while those of other families ate. I saw old people crying with no one to care for them and wash their clothes or love them.

When I came face to face with this life, I wanted to die.

I wanted to die in fire, in pain. Why was it like this? Was it their fate?

If someone falls into a pit, it's god's duty to help them.

That makes it my duty too, that's how I began."

"The compassion and love that you show to the beggar is the real devotion to God. This is what Amma wants Her children to do.”

The life that we are supposed to live is not a life that is meant to be filled with suffering. Life is meant to be filled with the overcoming of suffering.
