So, why wouldn’t I invite Louis Pasteur to dinner?
This is a picture of our small intestine, stained and magnified.
Who knew digestion was so much FUN!
Over the past century Germ theory has really shaped our beliefs about ourselves, our health and our world view.

Most people live with the expectation that they will ‘catch’ everything ‘going around’.

Why do we believe that we are so vulnerable?

Louis Pasteur introduced us to seeing life before our eyes through a microscope.

This gave us a view into a whole new world.

It is true that he gave us some really valuable insights into how we could be proactive to prevent germ-based diseases. Using more soap and hot water is really a good thing all around.

Germ theory is also good marketing.

There is always something to be afraid of; some bad guy to fight.

If we are in the head space to need some reason to be paranoid, man, germ theory is the ticket.

The truth is: Pasteur was a paranoid guy

The truth is: Pasteur was a paranoid guy. If you invited him to dinner he wouldn’t eat it. He would spend his time picking through his bread just in case he would find some tiny-nasty. Not a fun guy![Tweet “Pasteur was a paranoid guy. If you invited him to dinner he wouldn’t eat it”]

Germ Theory VS Terrain

Another way to view health is the Terrain Theory. This is the holistic view. The word ‘terrain’ means soil.

What this means is that we have different ancestors, with different genetic strengths and weaknesses. We have had unique birth and formative year experiences. Our nutrition and food styles are different. Our resistance to bacteria and viruses are uniquely our own. The emotional stressors we experienced and our resilience to these emotional stressors are different.

What Causes These Stresses?

Trauma can be stored in our tissues. Many people have scars that interrupt the body’s electrical flow. Early childhood illnesses and vaccines can change us even to a DNA level. (It is interesting to note that no child under the age of two years old is allowed to be vaccinated in Japan. The belief is that the child is too immature and vulnerable to damage). Many people have had vital organs and glands removed or tampered with.

Dental surgery has profoundly affected many people, bio-chemically and physically. Decades ago, the country of Sweden implemented a mercury-free policy for its children. Some individuals are more sensitive to mercury, heavy metals, radiation, or agricultural chemicals. Many people are using medications on an ongoing basis. It is unusual to find anyone over the age of 30 who is not on some form of prescription or over the counter drug.

When past health issues have been handled in a suppressive manner, some individuals may find that they do not respond as well to natural products as they had hoped. People’s expectations and attitudes are unique. We have different pain thresholds. Some people try natural products, expecting a drug type of response. Most people know more about the inner workings of their car, than their own bodies.

Insight and Education are Essential

Part of my role as a Medical Intuitive is to help people to understand the basic functions of their bodies from a relational and holistic perspective. The more that we can understand about how our body functions, the more we can effectively support our body’s efforts. Education is an essential foundation. From there, specific resources will naturally fit into place.

As the Acorn Grows …

The selection of natural remedies out in the world is vast, but what I have noticed over the last two decades is that families share an affinity. Some children will be more like Mom. Another child will be more like Dad, or perhaps a child will show a strong similarity to a grandparent.

The acorn and the tree will respond well to similar remedies. For most families, their home-aid kits will consist of a small handful of homeopathic single remedies, a homeopathic plex or two, as well as few tried and true herbal products.

Find Someone Worthy to Work With You

When I started out on my healing journey I looked for someone who would help me help myself. It was quite a learning curve for me to become knowledgeable and confident enough for me to take on the role of health care provider for myself and my family.

The most valuable resources

Knowledge and wisdom are the most valuable resources. It may stretch your mind and your faith a little. I can assure you from experience that there is a peace of mind beyond price that comes from understanding the basics that have proven their worth over time.

So, who would you invite to dinner? Let me know in the comments below!
