QUOTES REFUTING GERM THEORY

12 Jul

The following quotes from doctors and scientists seem to have a problem with the (What is the basis for Modern Medicine) Germ Theory….

“Medical doctors are working on the germ theory of disease… But the germ theory is already weakening and is due for being thrown aside. Dr. Fraser of Canada and Dr. Powell of California have experimented with billions of germs of all varieties, but they have been unable to produce a single disease by the introduction of germs into human subjects. Dr. Waite tried for years to prove the germ theory, but he could not do so. During the World War an experiment was conducted at Gallop’s Island Massachusetts, in which millions of influenza germs were injected into over one hundred men at the Government hospital, and no one got the flu. Germs are scavengers.” Principles and Practice of Naturopathy. E.W. Cordingley, M.D.., N.D.,A.M.

The World War Here, is WWI and the “Germ” was The Spanish Flu!

The Department of Health in Boston (1918-1919) tried to infect volunteers with the Spanish Flu using the blood from infected soldiers. They were INCAPABLE OF TRANSMITTING THE FLU EVEN WHEN INJECTED WITH THE INFECTED SUBJECTS’ BLOOD!

“We said before that so-called “germs” are ubiquitous. They are ever present. in many varying forms in both healthy and sick people. These microbes kick into what modern scientists call ‘pathogens’, when the media is toxic and conducive to clean up. When you enter into a healing crisis, and your body is throwing off toxins, these “germs” appear out of your very substance, to help eliminate, process and break down these toxins. Germs have absolutely no causal relationship to disease. But germs do appear to help you clean out, because put quite simply, your disease is your cure!” – Dr. William P. Trebing — Good-Bye Germ Theory — PI 54

——————————————————————————————————————–

Viruses are simply the excretions of a toxic cell. Viruses are pieces of DNA or RNA, with a few other proteins. They butt out from the cell. They happen when the cell is poisoned. They are not the cause of anything.” – Thomas Cowan MD on Rudolf Steiner’s insights.

——————————————————————————————————————–

“The entire fabric of the germ theory of disease rests upon assumptions which not only have not been proved, but which are incapable of proof, and many of them can be proved to be the reverse of truth. The basic one of the unproven assumptions, wholly due to Pasteur, is the hypothesis that all the so-called infections and contagious disorders are caused by germs.” – M.L. Leverson, M.D

“If the Germ Theory were true, no one would be alive to believe it.” BJ Palmer, D.C.

——————————————————————————————————————–

“Three criteria are, according to the scientific method needed to properly identify a virus. It must be isolated from a host cell. As of 2016 this has never been accomplished in humans. It must be photographed and its diameter measured. As of 2016 this has never been accomplished in humans. It must be biochemically characterized. As of 2016 this has never been accomplished in humans. This has never been done with any virus (herpes, hepatitis, hl nl, bird flu, swine flu, influenza, polio, measles) let alone HIV, HPV, SARS, Zika or Ebola.”- Viruses. How Much is that Dogma in the Window? — New Medicine Online

——————————————————————————————————————–

“We agree with those members of the profession who hold that no germ causes tuberculosis. Germs do not cause any disease. Further, we agree that there is more harm in the fear of germs than there is in the germs themselves.” – Timely Truths on Human Health – Simon Louis Katzoff, M.D. 1921

——————————————————————————————————————–

The general public have been told that we do not become ill except when germs penetrate into from without. The germ theory of disease is ridiculous.” — Bechamp or Pasteur. A lost chapter in the History of Biology – E. Douglas Hume

——————————————————————————————————————–

“You’re working under a wrong premise to begin with and you’re never going to find the answer if you do that. Viruses have no nucleus. There’s no respiratory system. There’s no circulatory system. There’s no digestive system. Viruses are not alive. That’s like saying soap is alive. They’re not alive. They are solvents. They are soaps. However, more accurately, they are enzymes to fractionate tissue for waste elimination.” – Aajonus Vonderplanitz

——————————————————————————————————————–

“We must infer that at least some and probably all three of those Russian peasants died because of Pasteur’s vaccine, as did uncounted people later on….Only one thing is sure: ever since Pasteur developed his “vaccine,” the cases of death from rabies have increased, not diminished.• – Hans Ruesch

——————————————————————————————————————–

“Had it not been for the mass selling of vaccines, Pasteur’s germ theory of disease would have collapsed into obscurity.” — E. Douglas Hume

——————————————————————————————————————–

Pasteurian “In 1915, another medical doctor wrote an article for the top British medical journal Lancet. Dr. Montais studied 21 cases of tetanus, each of whom had received Pasteurian inoculation. The conclusion of the article, which appeared in the 23 Oct 1915 issue, was that in every case, the tetanus had been caused by the inoculation. Dr. Montais said that “Pasteur had created a new form of disease: — The Post-Antibiotic Age: Germ Theory by Tim O’Shea

——————————————————————————————————————–

The culprit however, is not the microbe. It is the level of toxicity you have in your own blood stream.” — Good-Bye Germ Theory, Dr. William P. Trebing 2006

——————————————————————————————————————–

“In all that I have witnessed inside and outside of laboratories, there is only one cause of disease: Industrial pollution in medication, food, air, soil and water. Strengthening a body’s constitution and lymphatic system is the first step to reversing/curing disease” – Aajonus Vonderplantiz.

——————————————————————————————————————–

“What’s happening is, like I said, we have colds, which are mainly bacterial, which go feed on toxic tissue that’s been damaged — we don’t eat well enough, we don’t eat all raw and therefore we accumulate toxicity. So bacteria have to come in and eat that waste product because we can’t keep up with all the waste. OK. So that’s what a cold is. Flu is mainly viral. Some bacteria may be active during flu. Some areas of our bodies may not be so contaminated that bacteria – the natural way that we cleanse with bacteria when we’re overloaded with toxicity or waste products, will help us. But when we are so toxic that the bacteria are poisoned by the tissue, from chemical inundation, then we have to make solvents. Each cell makes a solvent. Each cell makes a soap to help clean itself. And it’s a union. It’s like a factory. All the particular cells get together and say, “Let’s make this to help clean ourselves.” So they make enzymes which we will call soap to do that. So there’s nothing dormant about it. It’s just that when the accumulation of industrially contaminated waste is so great and you can’t use microbes then the cells make solvents, that is, viruses we call flu.” Aajonus Vonderplanitz

——————————————————————————————————————–

“Any kind of flu is the same thing. When the climate and temperature are right, certain tissues will cleanse. They may have a 7-years cycle. They may have a 6-months cycle. It depends upon the tissue and how contaminated it is. If certain tissue needs to cleanse every two years, our bodies will create, if waste tissue is too toxic for mircrobes, our bodies will create a solvent (a virus) that fractionates and cleanses that particular tissue every two years, every 6 months, every 3 months, every 7 years, every 12 years, depending upon that tissue and how contaminated it is. The myth that herpes is contagious is pharmaceutical industry fiction to scare you into taking medication.” – Aajonus Vonderplanitz

——————————————————————————————————————–

“Rudolph Virchow, a great German scientist, repudiated the germ theory of disease. He said that disease brought on germs rather than the germs caused disease. Claude Bernard, Bechamp and Tissot – great French scientists – all disproved the germ theory of disease. In Hans Selye’s book Stress of Life (Page 205), an account is recorded that Louis Pasteur, inventor of the germ theory of disease, admitted he was wrong. Sanitation is the only factor that has reduced the spread of the old-time scourges. If the germ theory were founded on facts, there would be no living being to read what is here in written, for germs are ubiquitous – they exist everywhere. In many diseases supposedly caused by a specific germ, that germ is not present. Contrariwise, specific germs said to cause a specific disease are present in huge proportions without the specific disease manifesting itself. – Dr. Bernarr, D.C., D.D

The Zelenko Protocol

8 Jul

As the mainstream media continues to create fear out of nothing, it’s important to get back to basics.

Covid-19 is fear mongering focused on the common flu. It’s not working out well for the perpetrators as the actual deaths just cannot meet up with the hype. In addition to this, there are treatments for the common cold, previously not that well known, being implemented.

BitChute Interview with Dr. Zelenko

Dr. Zelenko is but one of many doctors around the world saving lives, treating patients, and making a positive contribution to humanity.


The Battle to Defeat Treatments for the Cerveza Virus

21 Jun

A relatively unknown, but common drug known as hydroxychloroquine became immediately famous when Donald Trump suggested it might be an effective treatment. Big Pharma erupted into an all out attack, once again against Trump, but more to the point, attacking HCQ.

Those who wish to control the inhabitants of this earth, having failed to bring a traditional full combat WWIII into fruition are now resorting to the use of a vaccine to do the job. Anything that foils the Covid-19 fear such as a simple treatment must be destroyed.

THE BATTLE TO DEFEAT CERVEZA VIRUS CURES TAKE 2

Supporting Evidence for HCQ

A recent controlled clinical study conducted by Didier Raoult MD/PhD, et al. in France has shown that 100% patients who received a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin tested negative and were virologically cured within 6 days of treatment.

The open data repository for the Prevention and Treatment of Covid-19 can be found at the following link:

https://www.covidtrial.io/

Erin Olszewski, a Registered Nurse (RN), was assigned to Elmhurst Hospital in Queens New York. During her time there, she observed patients being placed on ventilators for Covid-19 treatment. She stated that the only patient that survived being placed on a ventilator was so drugged up and aware of what was happening that he tore the ventilator off and walked out of the hospital. Her experience at her home hospital in Florida where patients were simply treated with HCQ and Zinc with huge success was not a considered alternative to a ventilator at Elmhurst Hospital.

Elmhurst Hospital was considered Gound Zero for the Covid-19 outbreak in the US!

Forged Studies to Demonize HCQ and Zinc

A company known as Surgisphere, with 6 employees, one of whom was an adult model and event hostess, forged a report published in The Lancet demonizing HCQ. The report, claiming to use data from thousands of sources all over the earth was later retracted. But, of course, it was promoted by all of the Mainstream Media prior to being retracted.

In the Solidarity clinical trials for HCQ performed by the World Health Organization (WHO), known to be potentially fatal dosages of HCQ were the basis of their study.

Recommended dosage of HCQ for treatment of Covid-19: 400mg per day for 10 days. (4 grams total)

The Cumulative dosages given in the first 24 hours are known to be lethal when given as a single dose.

Remdesevir to the Rescue (Not)

Dr. Anthony Fauci, who stands to make millions on the approval of Remdesevir just so happens to be running the clinical trials for the drug.

Oddly enough, the gold standards used for the control groups in clinical trials are not being followed.

Flu History

1 Jun

Spanish Flu

Link to YouTube Video

Link to Bitchute Video

Germ THEORY has been debunked since 1918, when the Boston Health Department failed to infect a single healthy subject they contaminated with the bodily fluids of “Spanish Flu” carriers.

Viruses do not exist the way most have been taught to believe. Viruses are Exosomes – solvents for toxic cells. Allopathic medical doctors are trained in Rockefeller funded medical schools without any real nutritional knowledge, taking about two weeks of classes in all their years of study.

Abraham Flexner was hired to write up the Rockefeller/Carnegie/Ford/AMA inspired and funded 1910 FLEXNER REPORT, which was used as an excuse to defund, defame and eventually eliminate the holistic medical service and culture.

Louis Pasteur was another scientist in league with the Rockefellers, and he pushed the Germ Theory, which is still pushed as fact by the medical schools.

Terrain Theory, put into play by Pasteur’s rival, Henry Bechamp, says our bodies express bacteria and viruses as cleaning and alarm-messenger agents to other cells.

To sell drugs and vaccines, pharmaceutical backed companies, doctors and schools ran with Pasteur’s Germ Theory and tried to blame every disease possible on it.

Scurvy, for example, was blamed on infection, yet proven to be caused by a lack of vitamin C.

When kids ate asbestos-laden wall chips, docs and scientists blamed their parents for being stupid. Instead, the “progress” driven by the big money in the last couple centuries saw a lot of toxins from lead, arsenic, DDT, asbestos and many pesticides being sprayed upon the public.

When people get sick the corrupt medical industry blames it on an “infectious” agent, even though the very toxicity that caused the infection is from the environment.

Polio: As farmers & communities began to spray the first arsenic-based “Paris Green” in the late 1800s to control insects, and then lead-arsenate, more cases of paralysis and poisoning appeared, but with no detectable source of “infection.” When the public began to question possible toxicity from pesticides, they were shouted down and mocked – but not challenged with scientific data.

“Reports of children killed by arsenic poisoning began to surface, and authorities who had worked tirelessly to enforce the mandatory application of pesticides blamed the deaths on improper spraying techniques by reckless farmers.”

Radiation and Viruses

There are many things you can control with respect to protecting your body and its health. More often than not, exposure to radiation is not one of them.

As the world falls prey to the fear of a viral plague, many knowledgeable people are sharing their wisdom on the subject.

Germ Theory/ CoronaVirus Economic Plague

21 Mar

It’s important to note: If it was a FACT, it would not be called a THEORY. Theories are unproven, and are usually postulated to defame the Truth. (There are many…)

Germ Theory and Bacteria

“Germ Theory” eventually superseded existing miasma and contagion theories of disease and in so doing radically changed the practice of medicine.

“It remains a guiding theory that underlies contemporary biomedicine.”

CONTAGIOUS DISEASES and the GERM THEORY – By Dr. Bernarr, D.C., D.D. (All these quotes, from Doctors refuting the Germ Theory, are from this article)

T.C. Fry wrote, “Actually bacteria are our symbiotic partners in both health and disease. They serve a useful role. As scavengers they make harmless or remove undesirable substances within our bodies. They also elaborate certain of our body needs. That is, they help build complex organic compounds from simple ingredients. A notable example of this is the production of vitamin B-12 in our intestines.”

Fry also wrote, “‘Infection’ is no war in which the body is fighting invaders. The bacteria that come to these sites are symbiotic and help the body in elaborating dead cells and tissues for expulsion-they are partners in the cleanup process. When this has been accumulated the bacteria disappear and the wound heals. Infection…is a body-cleaning process for a body burdened with toxic materials.”

Dr. Paul Goldberg writes, “We need to re-direct our perspectives of microbes and see them in a new light. In terms of bacteria, for example, we need to appreciate them as: Bodily inhabitants who assist us in such ways as protecting us from other organisms (e.g. fungi), assisting in digestion and metabolism of food, synthesizing vitamins, and helping to eliminate waste materials.”

Dr. Alec Burton writes, “DO GERMS CAUSE DISEASE? Or could it be the other way around…first, the disease, then the germs. Natural Hygiene contends that germs do not cause disease. They are not the originators. Most diseases occur when people allow themselves to become enervated, that is, low in nerve energy. As a consequence, the organs of excretion fail to function normally and waste material accumulates in the body. When this waste continues to build up, exceeding the body’s toleration point, a crisis arises. The body, to offset this overabundance of poisonous matter, begins to react. The result of this reaction is sometimes a cold, the flu, pneumonia, or some such, depending on the individual. At this crisis point of elimination, germs may or may not be present. They are sure to come later, not to attack, but to assist in the cleanup or cleansing process.”

Dr. Virginia Vetrano writes, “Hygienists object to the germ theory of disease because germs do not cause disease. They may be present in disease processes, and they many complicate a disease with their waste products which can be very toxic at times, but the germ or virus alone is never the sole cause of disease.”

“Germs are saprophytes; that is, they live off dead and decaying organic matter. Bacteria are actually our benefactors. They decompose our excretions, helping to rid the system of them. Bacteria are non-toxic, and non-virulent as long as body secretions and excretions are normal. When toxemia exists, that is, when metabolic wastes accumulate in the system in excess, causing the secretions and excretions of the body to become abnormal and poisonous, a non-pathogenic bacterium can turn into a so-called pathogenic one simply by feeding on toxic wastes. Bacteria excrete toxic waste only when human secretions are abnormal and when the cells of the body are killed by excessive toxic saturation, bacteria go to work to disorganize them and help the body rid itself of dead tissue. ‘Disease producing’ germs are often present in the absence of the disease they are supposed to cause. They are often found when an individual has not had the disease that a particular germ is supposed to cause and when the individual never develops the disease. Furthermore, in myriads of cases, a particular pathogenic germ is not present when the disease it is supposed to cause exists.”

Dr. Robert R. Gross wrote, “Germs do not cause disease! Nature never surrounded her children with enemies. It is the individual himself who makes disease possible in his own body because of poor living habits…Do mosquitoes make the water stagnant; or does stagnant water attract the mosquitoes? We should all be taught that germs are friends and scavengers attracted by disease, rather {than} enemies causing disease…As their internal environment is, so will be the attraction for any specific micro-organism…The germ theory and vaccination are kept going by Commercialism.”

Dr. Herbert Shelton wrote, “Warmth, moisture, food-these are the causes that activate latent germs and arouse them to activity. They exist, all except the food, in the mouth, nose and throat at all times. The food is thrown out into these, as excretions, in disease. The germs feed on the excretions. They are scavengers. They were never anything else and will never be anything else. They break up and consume the discharge from the tissues. This is the function ascribed to germs everywhere in nature outside the body and is their real and only function in disease. They are purifying and beneficial agents. The medical profession has worked itself into hysteria over the germ theory and is using it to exploit an all too credulous public. Germs are ubiquitous. They are in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink. We cannot escape them. We can destroy them only to a limited extent. It is folly to attempt to escape disease by attempting to destroy or escape germs. Once they are in the body the physician has no means of destroying them that will not, at the same time, destroy the patient. We cannot avoid germs. We must be proof against them. We have to accept them as one of the joys of life.”

Rudolph Virchow, a great German scientist, repudiated the germ theory of disease. He said that disease brought on germs rather than the germs caused disease. Claude Bernard, Bechamp and Tissot-great French scientists-all disproved the germ theory of disease. In Hans Selye’s book Stress of Life (Page 205), an account is recorded that Louis Pasteur, inventor of the germ theory of disease, admitted he was wrong. Sanitation is the only factor that has reduced the spread of the old-time scourges. If the germ theory were founded on facts, there would be no living being to read what is herein written, for germs are ubiquitous-they exist everywhere. In many diseases supposedly caused by a specific germ, that germ is not present. Contrariwise, specific germs said to cause a specific disease are present in huge proportions without the specific disease manifesting itself.

Dr. Virginia Vetrano writes, “Just remember that there are no contagious diseases, just contagious habits which lower your vitality. There have been many people who have had diphtheria and yet no germ could be found. The same can be said of tuberculosis and other diseases. This is why the virus had to be discovered-to save the germ theory. Now we have virus infections instead of germ infections because pathologists could not find a germ for all the diseases of mankind. If a germ does not cause disease, what does? Soon everyone will learn that it is the individual’s way of life that produces disease and not the saprophytes of earth, which are actually beneficial to us. Without them we would all succumb. They do so many jobs for us that it would take volumes to tell you about them. In fact without bacterial life, all animal and plant life would soon wither and die. On second thought, without bacteria we can’t even wither.”

Dr. Vetrano adds, “A truly healthy child can sleep with a person ‘infected’ with scarlet fever, mumps, measles or some of the other virulent so-called infections diseases, night after night, and still not develop the disease. But overfeed that same child and he will now develop a so-called infectious disease. This disease will not be due to germs, but due to putrefactive toxins absorbed from the digestive tract in an enervated and toxemic individual.”

Anarchapulco 2020 and 9/11

19 Mar

I had the pleasure of attending Anarchapulco this year. The event has been going on for the last 5 years and provides an opportunity for like minded people to get together. Ones who believe in the vision of a world where there is more and more freedom to attain personal sovereignty are there to enable the community to become active voices and advocates in this movement.

As there were too many topics to cover, from health, to Government, to taxes, to finance, to Bitcoin, etc., an important underlying subject was often mentioned. And that subject is what happened on September 11th, 2001.

For anyone seeking the truth, getting past what happened on that day is critical.

Many of the speakers and participants began their process of “waking up” as a result of 9/11. The freedoms that were taken away as a result of that event had a direct impact on all of our individual sovereignty. A few of the speakers in Acapulco were crucial to exposing the events on that day to millions of people all over the world.

First and foremost on this subject is Richard Gage of Architects and Enghineers for 911 Truth. He is probably one of the foremost experts on the subject and helps to represent over 3,000 architects and engineers who are working to have the investigation re-opened.

Another brilliant journalist operating from the Sunny climes of Western Japan is James Corbett. He operates a treasure trove of information at The Corbett Report.com. One of his most popular videos, with over 3.2 million views is titled “9/11: A Conspiracy Theory”. At 4:55 in lenghth, it’s a MUST SEE.

Additionally, a landmark documentary called “Loose Change 9/11” had contributions from Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change.

Dr. Royal Rife’s Cure

29 Feb

It was in the 1930’s, in the town of Loma Linda in Southern California where Dr. Rife was doing his work. His activities involved, 1st, the development of the strongest optical microscope, and 2nd, matching a frequency to biological organisms that would have a negative effect on those organisms. His obvious goal was to target cancer cells with a resonant frequency that would result in their destruction.

By viewing the targetted cells being vibrated by a specific frequency, he would be able to observe how they behaved.
