Germs Don’t Cause Disease!

germophobe image

Germs can't cause illness unless the body's immune system is compromised in some way.

Years ago, Louis Pasteur “discovered” the “germ theory,” and the rest is history! The gist of the theory? That germs cause disease and that exposure to germs makes a person sick. What matters is the presence of germs – they cause disease – it’s just that simple… and it’s just that wrong! Staying healthy naturally doesn’t mean sanitizing your hands constantly!

Even on his deathbed, Pasteur stated that it was not germs that caused diseases, but rather the environment (body) in which the germs were found that contributed to the cause of disease. In other words – there had to be fertile soil for a germ “seed” to grow and manifest into a disease.

Parents today are starting to understand that children need exposure to germs to gain appropriate, natural immunity. In fact, many believe that the increase in childhood allergies and asthma may actually be a by-product of our over-sanitization by “germophobic” parents!

When we give antibiotics that only attack the symptoms of disease, we are actually fighting the body’s natural lines of defense, and making it harder for our children to heal properly. When we allow our children’s bodies to heal themselves, we enable them to become more resilient and far more capable of resisting the onslaught of germs in the future.

So… what we need to focus on is keeping our children’s immune systems functioning properly so germs don’t find a willing host in which to thrive. As parents, we do this by encouraging proper nutrition, sleep, exercise and optimal nerve supply to the immune system with regular chiropractic care. Only then can we truly move forward, past the flawed germ “theory” to a state of true health and wellness.
