“Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.”
I am often asked how I stay so healthy. “You must have great genes, or you
must be really lucky,” people say.
I wish that were true…
Are we completely helpless when it comes to avoiding the Flu and other ‘germ related’ diseases? Or are there some simple things that we can easily do to prevent the flu or other germ related illnesses from ever happening?
Do germs alone make people sick or are there other factors that determine our state of health and immunity? What is the Germ Theory of disease? And is there another more accurate system of understanding human health and disease?
Let’s first have a quick look back in history.
The Germ Theory was created and promulgated (in part) by Louis Pasteur in the 1860’s. To this day it is the basis for modern/western medicine’s approach to health and disease. But Is Pasteur’s theory really sound?
