True Health – The Answer Is In The Blood

Ever heard of the saying – there is no waste in nature? Considering how the species of the world live, I got an impression that Mother Nature has its own way of creating “order” out of “chaos”. It does so by self-balancing, self-cleaning by re-cycling of biological waste, and thus supports all life forms on earth.

Humans probably haven’t lived long enough to fully appreciate this unseen force of mother nature, although many would find it intuitive to understand such notion that human biology is part of a larger ecosystem and thus subject to the same laws of nature. It’s surprising, however, such principle of understanding was not so well respected in the practice of modern medicine dominated by antibiotics, blockers, and inhibitors of man-made chemicals, going against the way how life works, naturally. The history of such disassociation from nature has long been forgotten by many. It was unbeknownst to the public, before Harris L. Coulter published Divided Legacy (I-IV) in late 1970s, there are two opposing philosophies in medicine, namely, Empiricism and Rationalism. Empiricists, following Hippocrates and Einsteinium principles, say that the physical body uses its innate intelligence to flush out poisons; for instance, diarrhea; while Rationalists, following Galenical and Newtonian principles, say that diarrhea is a functional problem and must be stopped.

The two branches of philosophies further divided into two opposing camps in medical practice. The mainstream practitioners following Rationalism, practice allopathic medicine; while alternative therapists following Empiricism, practice homeopathic or holistic medicine. Without proven superiority, rather, more like a catastrophic system failure in diagnosing and treating chronic epidemics, allopathic medicine dominated health care for over a century.

Now with COVID-19, ignorance in immunology, microbiology, and the 150 years of medical history, has taken its toll on us, not only in the US, the collective germophobic fanaticism is at a global scale.

If medicine were an exact science, like physics, this detailed homepage could have been replaced with less than a one-line math formula proving that all the current conventional and alternative integrative approaches cannot possibly solve the epidemics of chronic diseases. – Savely Yurkovsky, MD

Many outspoken surgeon, microbiologist, and psychiatrist like Dr. Harvey Bigelsen, Dr. Judy Mikovits and Dr. Andrew Kaufman respectively have spoken openly about their opinion on the pandemic, exposing the hidden side of everything we knew about health and health care. Yet, the show is still going on.

What if we are heading towards the wrong direction in search of a cure?

Let me go back to Dr. Harvey Bigelsen, whom I mentioned in an earlier post. He discussed in great length about an old idea of pleomorphism based on the discoveries of Antoine Bechamp (1816-1908), and Gunther Enderlein (1872-1968). In their seminal work The Blood and its Third Element and Bacteria Cyclogeny, both researchers identified a basic microorganism ubiquitous to all living things. They named it ‘microzyma‘ or ‘mychit‘. By observing living organisms under dark-field microscope, Bechamp realized the basic life unit possessed pleomorphic characteristics, working in harmony with the entity, not confrontationally. Enderlein who also observed the same behavior described how each species of bacterium strives to exist in balance with other beings in its environment.

Following these hypothesis, I searched online for publications in this topic and came across an article published by McLaughlin, et al on Journal of Clinical Microbiology 2002, titled “Are There Natural Occurring Pleomorphic Bacteria in the Blood of Healthy Humans?” The anwer is an astounding yes! After reading this paper, I couldn’t help but thinking what if Bechamp was right all along? This question happens to be the title of another excellent article from the Vexman’s Thought which I came across online while writing this post. It elaborates on the same subject which I highly recommend anyone who takes health seriously to get informed, get curious, and get out of your own way towards better health and a more fulfilling life.

Another great researcher and medical doctor worth noting here is Dr. Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg (1905-1985). He is well known for inventing homotoxicology as an alternative / complementary medicine to conventional medicine.

The term Homotoxicology is derived from three words; “homo” meaning man, “toxico” derived from toxin or poison, and finally “logy”, derived from the Greek ‘logos’, meaning study. To summarize, we can describe Homotoxicology as the study of the influence of toxic substances on humans.

In homotoxicology, illness is defined as:

the expression of biologically purposeful defense mechanisms against endogenous and exogenous homotoxins, or the expression of the organism’s effort to compensate for toxic damage it has sustained.

The real culprit of ill health is not a “deadly virus” but the cumulative toxic load one’s body has carried internally. This Homotoxicosis Table developed by Reckeweg is a map for understanding how toxins lead to symptoms in 6 phases.
