“The primary cause of disease is in us, always in us.”
–Antoine Beauchamp, 1883
Hence the importance of alkaline diet versus acidic diet. And why you find no alkaline food at supermarkets.
That’s why you never heard of Béchamp, but you know how Pasteur’s ideas are the fundation of current ‘medcine’.
Antoine Bechamp was able to scientifically prove that germs are the chemical by-products and constituents of pleomorphic microorganisms enacting upon the unbalanced, malfunctioning cell metabolism and dead tissue that actually produces disease. Bechamp found that the diseased, acidic, low-oxygen cellular environment is created by a toxic/nutrient deficient diet, toxic emotions, and a toxic lifestyle. His findings demonstrate how cancer develops through the morbid changes of germs to bacteria, bacteria to viruses, viruses to fungal forms and fungal forms to cancer cells.
After some initial controversy, Pasteur`s germ theory ended up winning the day with mainstream medicine – owing in large part to the fact that the theory enabled mainstream medicine to hugely profit from the patented drugs and treatments for fighting germs. After all, had Bechamp`s discoveries been incorporated into current medical curriculum, it would likely have meant a virtual elimination of disease and the end of the pharmaceutical industry.
Pasteur = to fight illness you have to treat the symptoms
Bechamps = to fight illness you have to create a healthy body in which disease cannot develop
