Germ theory

  1. 1. Germs Does Not Cause Disease But Are Found In Diseased Condition SRILOY MOHANTY Sriloy21@gmail.com BNYS 3rd yr. Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana Germs are ubiquitous. They are in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink. We cannot escape them. We can destroy them only to a limited extent. It is folly to attempt to escape disease by attempting to destroy or escape germs. Germs are not the causative factors of disease. We cannot avoid them. We must be proof against them, we can avoid disease only by keeping ourselves in such a high state of health that they are powerless against us. Germs do not cause disease but are found breeding in the accumulating waste matter in the body. In a healthy body, having normal secretions and excretions, the germs cannot find a breeding ground and are destroyed by the antibodies present in the secretions.Therefore, even if germs enter our body when we are healthy, they are killed / made ineffective by the defense mechanism. "Just as mud cannot stick to a smooth, oily surface, similarly, the germs cannot blemish a healthy body." Infections occur in a weakened, damaged or over worked part of the body. Germs alone can no more produce disease than a seed alone can produce a tree. Just as a seed must have fertile soil, moisture, warmth, air and sunlight, if it is to grow into a tree, so the germ, if it is to produce disease, must find certain essential conditions existing in the bodies of those it enters before it can do the slightest harm. If the body is normal, if it has an abundance of nerve force, if its blood stream is pure, if there is prompt and vigorous action of all its essential organs, no germs coming in contact with it can grow and multiply. Germs doesn’t create ‘dirt’, but dirt which is otherwise called as morbidity, attracts the germs.
  2. 2. Nature Cure recognizes this. Instead of concentrating its energy on killing germs, the activity of which we cannot escape when the conditions are ripe, nature cure attempts to invigorate the system, to build up blood and lymph, and to purify the tissues so that germ activity is rendered inconsequential.
