Sterile is not sanitary/healthy.
“Researchers link a bacteria species, once believed to be innocuous, to chronic sinusitis—persistent inflammation of the sinuses—and also come up with an unusual potential cure. Introducing a second bacterial species into the noses of mice prevented the sinusitis-causing strain from gaining a foothold and causing symptoms. ”
The particular species used in this experiment was a lactobacillus.
“…For one thing, it is possible that a variety of bacterial species could cause sinusitis symptoms, and it is not clear whether L. sakei would be protective in all cases.
Somewhat ironically, Lynch was suffering from a cold and blocked sinuses when talking to The Scientist.Asked whether she was tempted to self-treat with L. sakei, she said only, ‘the guy who swallowedHelicobactor pylori got a Nobel prize, right? So the stakes are high.’”
The saline/bicarbonate in your neti pot might change the environment to select for the beneficial microbial species. Xylitol targets cavity forming bacteria in your mouth, maybe pathogens in the nose, too. Gargling with dilute peroxide could have similar effects. But introducing probiotic bacteria in the nose has the potential for them to spread on their own higher into the sinuses to take out the pathogens.
Louis Pasteur’s deathbed admission: “Bernard was correct. I was wrong. The microbe (germe) is nothing. The terrain (milieu) is everything.”
And here you have the fundamental contradictions between homeopathic and allopathic principles.
|GERM THEORY (PASTEUR)||CELLULAR THEORY (BÉCHAMP)|
|1. Disease arises from micro-organisms outside the body.||Disease arises from micro-organisms within the cells of the body.|
|2. Micro-organisms are generally to be guarded against.||These intracellular micro-organisms normally function to build and assist in the metabolic processes of the body.|
|3. The function of micro-organisms is constant.||The function of these organisms changes to assist in the catabolic (disintegration) processes of the host organism when that organism dies or is injured, which may be chemical as well as mechanical.|
|4. The shapes and colours of micro-organisms are constant.||Micro-organisms change their shapes and colours to reflect the medium.|
|5. Every disease is associated with a particular micro-organism.||Every disease is associated with a particular condition.|
|6. Micro-organisms are primary causal agents.||Micro-organisms become “pathogenic” as the health of the host organism deteriorates. Hence, the condition of the host organism is the primary causal agent.|
|7. Disease can “strike” anybody.||Disease is built by unhealthy conditions.|
|8. To prevent disease we have to “build defences.”||To prevent disease we have to create health.|
Just 60 years later, during the American Civil War, the “new” surgical techniques used unclean scalpels and “butcher knives” to remove injured arms and legs. The result was nearly 1/5 or 20% of the injured soldiers were dying days later of severe infections or septicemia caused by the “new medical” treatments.
It seemed that a greater percentage of Civil War soldiers were dying from the “medical” care they received, than were dying from enemy gunfire on the battlefield. This problem was solved when doctors actually started washing their hands before surgery and even cleaning their surgical tools. But…
Compare that to what is happening in today’s modern hospitals where surgical patients are dying at an even far greater rate, about 30%, from septicemia and major organ shutdown. Clearly something is going wrong in modern hospitals. That is even worse than the record of the Civil War surgeons who never washed their hands. So what can be going so wrong? And why is nobody shouting about this? Is the medical profession going backwards?
