The Germ Theory- True, False, or Maybe?
We have always been taught that “germs” cause disease.
If this is true, why do some people get sick and others do not. They are
exposed to the same situation germ, bacteria, etc. I am sure we have all
experienced this situation, maybe even from both sides. Someone at school,
work, church or home was sick and the next day or two other people started
getting sick but others did not. Why?
The reality is germs can cause disease; however, they do not always. If the
body has a decreased immune system due to many things such as: interference
in the nervous system, high stress, poor diet, lack of water, sleep, or
exercise, or other illnesses, it is more likely to get “sick” from these
germs. On the other hand if your body is strong and healthy the body will
not get sick from these germs, because the body’s immune system will kill
them before they get a chance to cause disease.
The Germ Theory was developed by Louis Pasteur, who admitted near the end of
his life that the theory was in fact not entirely true. He said it was not
the germs which were the problem of disease, but the medium in which they
lived. Even though Pasteur recanted on his Germ Theory, it is still widely
used today as fact in the medical field.
As you can see germs are not the exclusive cause disease, they only cause
disease in a body that does not have a healthy immune response. Take your
health in your own hands. By doing things that help get your body healthier
you are making your body more resistant to germs and therefore less likely
to get sick from them.
You can decide if you want to be healthy by choice or healthy by chance.
