The Hidden History part 3

Thanks for joining me for part 3 of what I call The Hidden History.

In this session we are going to highlight three of the most popular Theories in scientific history – Miasma Theory, Germ Theory & Terrain Theory.

‘Miasma theory’ was the widely accepted theory of illness & infection up until the 1890’s.

‘Germ theory’ is the current widely accepted scientific theory for dis-ease.

‘Terrain theory’ was around in the early 1800’s & is widely entering the mainstream in recent years.

Before we take a look at them please remember to go and research these subjects for yourself.

Miasma theory

Miasma – meaning ‘Pollution’ or ‘bad air’ in Ancient Greek

Miasma was believed to be a poisonous vapor or mist from decomposed matter that contaminated the environment and caused illness.

It was believed that diseases were the product of environmental factors i.e. contaminated water, foul air, poor hygienic conditions.

It was not believed that infections could be passed from person to person, rather that people could become infected within the environment from breathing in the noxious vapours.

Germ theory

Germ theory believes that microorganisms, known as pathogens or ‘germs,’ can lead to dis-ease.

It is believed these small organisms invade humans, animals & living hosts. It is believed that growth & reproduction in a living host can cause dis-ease.

Dis-eases caused by pathogens are commonly called infectious dis-eases.

Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) began work on this theory in the 1850’s, with Robert Koch* continuing in the 1880’s.

*Robert Koch developed Koch’s Postulates, a 4 step criteria to establish a causative relationship between a microbe & a disease (we will be looking more at this in relation to our current worldwide situation soon)

Terrain theory

Terrain theory believes that dis-eases are the result of the internal environment of our body (the terrain) & it’s ability to maintain homeostasis against outside threats.

It is believed that the Terrain is the first line of defense, with the Immune system being the secondary line of defense in natural health.

To maintain a healthy terrain you must have proper nutrition & be free from toxins. Eating unhealthy (GMO) foods & taking in toxins (chemicals) will weaken the terrain & you will be vulnerable to dis-ease.

Terrain theory can be linked to Claude Bernard (1813-1878) and Antoine Bechamp (1816-1908)

Claude Bernard described a healthy terrain as two internal factors:

1. Alkalinity

2. Negative electric charge

Antoine Bechamp discovered tiny organisms which he called ‘microzymas’ which are present in all things – animal, vegetable & mineral.

He said ‘these microorganisms feed upon the poisonous material which they find in the sick organism and prepare it for excretion. These tiny organisms are derived from still tinier organisms called microzyma. These microzymas are present in the tissues and blood of all living organisms where they lay quiescent and harmless. When the welfare of the human body is threatened by the presence of potentially harmful material, a transmutation takes place. The microzyma changes into a bacterium or virus which immediately goes to work to rid the body of this harmful material. When the bacteria or viruses have completed their task of consuming the harmful material they automatically revert to the mycrozyma stage.’

My thoughts

Germ theory & Terrain theory have strong opposing views.

Why has Terrain theory been kept hidden for over a century, while Germ theory has been promoted as THE ONLY theory that ever existed?

When I think about Germ theory & Terrain theory, I think about how they each make me feel & how they influence my view of the world.

Germ theory would have me believe that there are killer germs & bacteria everywhere I go that are ready to attack me.

This could make me fearful to leave the house, becoming overzealous & perhaps becoming a hypochondriac.

If I hadn’t grown up climbing trees & rolling around in mud with great health, I might believe it to be true.

Terrain theory would have me believe that everything can be healed by keeping our body healthy with eating the right food & being free from toxins. This makes me feel happy & confident about the world around me.

When we think about it, aren’t our bodies naturally self-healing?

When someone breaks their leg, they go to hospital where a Nurse/Doctor prescribes pain relief, checks the bones are in place & places a cast over the leg, keeping the leg still so it can self heal.

For me, this lines up with Terrain theory.

Give the body the right environment & the body will heal itself.

So if we eat healthy, organic fruits & vegetables, exercise regularly, have a good work/life balance & live stress free, regularly laughing, singing, dancing, creating - all the beautiful things in life - then we will have a healthy terrain & have a small risk of dis-ease.

Now look at the world around you, have you seen ways to boost your immune system naturally promoted anywhere?

Are we empowered to know our bodies can heal ourselves or are we filled with fear & taught to rely on the multi billion-pound industry that is the pharmaceutical industry?

What happens when you go against the allopathic medical industry

Years ago, during my search for answers about cancer, I uncovered a gentleman by the name of Alfredo Bowman, aka Dr Sebi

You can listen to Dr Sebi in his own words here:

Dr Sebi eat to live or eat to die

Dr Sebi’s story is one of a long list of Doctors, who have been silenced, prosecuted & had their reputations smeared.

His crime?

Healing people of their dis-eases

Alfredo Darrington Bowman, aka Dr Sebi, was born on 26th November 1933.

In his own words he hated school & didn’t gain a ‘formal’ education. He left Honduras and became a merchant seaman, becoming a steam engineer.

Over the years Dr Sebi developed asthma, diabetes, obesity & was impotent. He visited allopathic physicians in Russia, England, Germany, France, US but was not cured.

He visited a Mexican herbalist who told him he would help him heal & that he would have to stop eating for 3 months. Dr Sebi told the physician he was crazy for suggesting not eating for 3 months. The physician replied you have been eating garbage for 30 years, you are crazy.

90 days later Dr Sebi was cured of asthma, diabetes, obesity, impotence & he no longer needed to wear glasses.

Dr Sebi dedicated over 30 years of his life to develop a unique method, inspired by his personal healing experience and the knowledge he gained, he created the Usha Institute, creating African Bio Mineral Balance. He believed in diets centered on the consumption of natural alkaline plant foods (which links in with Terrain theory)

Usha Institute

In the 1980’s Dr Sebi put adverts in newspapers, including New York Post, claiming he could cure a number of ailments including aids, sickle cell, herpes & leukemia.

This drew the attention of the FDA and the New York Attorney General took Dr Sebi to court for ‘false advertisement’ & for ‘practising without a license’

So Dr Sebi goes to court, the Judge requested that Dr Sebi provide one witness for each ailment he had cured. He produced over 70 witnesses

'During the trial, Assistant General Barclay revealed that two undercover agents were sent to the Institute in an attempt ''to entrap Sebi into making medical diagnoses''

Dr Sebi found not guilty in 'fake' healing case

In 2016 Dr Sebi was arrested in Honduras for alleged money laundering, for having $37,000 in his possession. He died in custody aged 82. His death was listed as ‘complications from pneumonia’

Dr Sebi is not a unique case. There are many Doctors I have listened to who echo Terrain theory & who are the receiving end from the allopathic medical industry. I will go in to this more in the future however for now, check out:

Dr Robert Young:

Testimony at ITNJ:


Dr Judy Mikovitz:

Author of 'Plague of Corruption'

My conclusion

In a world where sickness & dis-ease is rife, where many are on pharmaceutical drugs, and are often advised to take more drugs to combat the side effects of the initial drug, isn’t it time we explored Terrain theory in the mainstream?

Allopathic medicine is great in a crisis, if someone breaks a bone or needs life saving surgery, there is no comparative treatment.

However when we become a little ill or not ourselves, why do many pop a pill?

Why do we as a society look to supress the symptoms instead of dealing with the cause?

From my personal life experience I have never followed the allopathic medical route. If I get a headache I rest & drink more water. When I get an annual cold/flu, I rest & allow my immune system to take over, fully believing in my natural immunity.

I can count on one hand the amount of times I have been to the doctors/NHS as an adult.

I believe in bodily autonomy and Sovereignty.

No Doctor, no Health Expert, no Scientist knows how my individual body works better than me.

There is another approach to health & wellbeing, one I have discovered in recent years.

The Eastern approach to medicine is one of a holistic viewpoint, that good health involves the physical, mental & spiritual aspects combined.

After receiving Reiki energy healing, then going on to learn & to practise Reiki energy healing, I believe that when our body shows us symptoms it is our bodies way of communicating with us. Our body is telling us something is out of balance.

If we slow down we have a chance to assess our lives, are we happy, what are we eating, what are we drinking, who are we spending time with, do they add positive energy to our lives or drain it?

Thanks for joining me in part 3 of The Hidden History.

I'll be back soon with more.

All my Love,
