Antoine Béchamp Vs. Louis Pasteur

In the late 1800's there was a great debate between Louis Pasteur, champion of the "Germ Theory" and Antoine Béchamp, advocate of the "Terrain Theory." At the time, in commercial circles at least, Pasteur appeared to be the winner. However, now with the relatively recent release of knowledge about the human body's microbiome, it seems obvious that Béchamp's theory has proved to be the better answer to disease than the germ theory.

Germ Theory Versus Terrain: The Wrong Side Won the Day
July 30, 2019 By Merinda Teller, MPH, PhD [Weston A Price Org]
Whereas most Americans probably have heard of Louis Pasteur (1822–1895), it is doubtful that many are familiar with the name and work of Antoine Béchamp (1816–1908). The two nineteenth-century researchers were scientific contemporaries, compatriots and fellow members of the French Academy of Science, but key differences in their views on biology and disease pathology led to a prolonged rivalry both within and outside of the Academy.1

Béchamp was the more brilliant thinker, but Pasteur had political connections, including Emperor Napoleon III. Reportedly not above “plagiarising and distorting Béchamp’s research,”2 Pasteur achieved fame and fortune largely because his views “were in tune with the science and the politics of his day.”1 Meanwhile, mainstream medical historians relegated Béchamp’s ideas—not as attractive to conventional thinkers—to the intellectual dustbin.3

Pasteur vs Béchamp: The Germ Theory Debate
by Kate Raines, Published February 6, 2018 in The Vaccine Reaction [NVIC]
“Louis Pasteur was a French chemist-turned-microbiologist, who proved the existence of microbes in air. His pioneering studies laid the foundation for the modern-day understanding of diseases, their etiology as well as vaccine development.”1

How that quotation is interpreted—whether as high praise or condemnation—depends on the perspective. Pasteur was not the only scientist who delved into the origins of disease. While he focused on the influence of invading microbes, or what has come to be known as the “germ theory,” his rival Antoine Béchamp, one of the period’s preeminent scientists, was promoting a different theory. Béchamp’s theory, referred to as the “microzymian” theory of disease, has since become known as the “cellular,”2 or “host”3 theory.4

By all accounts, Béchamp was a highly respected scientist whose teachings were accepted as fact by many of Pasteur’s contemporaries.5 So how is it that relatively few people today have even heard the name of Antoine Béchamp and that it is Louis Pasteur’s scientific conclusions that form much of the basis of contemporary medical thinking about infectious disease?

THE DREAM AND LIE OF LOUIS PASTEUR [Entire book is posted here]
by R. B. Pearson
Pearson's book, originally published in the 1940's, under the title Pasteur, Plagiarist, Imposter, is an excellent introduction to the theory and practice of Pastuer's "science", his inability to fully understand the concepts he was appropriating, and the consequences of the vaccines that he and his followers created.

Louis Pasteur built his reputation and altered the course of twentieth century science by plagiarizing and distorting the work Antoine Bechamp.

Pearson exposes facts concerning Pasteur which are still being ignored today, and provides a detailed historical background to the current controversy surrounding vaccination. The wierd thing is that even during Pasteur's lifetime, there were people who were saying that he was wrong, and that he knew he was wrong, but Pasteur was good at playing politics, and was in with the ruling class, so he won.

The following is the entire text of the book. The sooner we get over the legacy of Pasteur's fake science and get back to reality the better.

Louis Pasteur vs. Antoine Bechamp: Know the True Causes of Disease
March 10, 2018, by Dr. Eddy Bettermann MD
Mainstream medicine believes that virtually all illness is caused by germs or genetic hereditary weakness, as well as deformities and trauma injuries. Their solution and strategy is to have us believe that there are over 10,000 different diseases and that each of these diseases requires outside intervention from drugs and surgery. The truth is that most illness is due to cellular malfunction caused by cellular toxicities and cellular malnutrition, both of which can be avoided and overcome naturally.

Antoine Bechamp was able to scientifically prove that germs are the chemical by-products and constituents of pleomorphic microorganisms enacting upon the unbalanced, malfunctioning cell metabolism and dead tissue that actually produces disease. Bechamp found that the diseased, acidic, low-oxygen cellular environment is created by a toxic/nutrient deficient diet, toxic emotions, and a toxic lifestyle. His findings demonstrate how cancer develops through the morbid changes of germs to bacteria, bacteria to viruses, viruses to fungal forms and fungal forms to cancer cells.

This Mistaken Theory Can Destroy Your Health!
[Women's health plus Pasteur vs Claude Bernard and Antoine Bechamp.]
by Ed Jones | Apr 20, 2018 | Blog, Immune Health, Women's Health
Louis Pasteur proposed the germ theory of disease in the 1800’s. He theorized that outside invaders caused most illnesses. His germ theory began a philosophy of treatment that is stronger today than ever in history. This system relies heavily on utilizing strong synthetic chemicals to “conquer the enemy”. This is the bedrock of pharmaceutical trainings for every single traditional health care worker in this country. Treat the enemy with everything available and call it “heroic medicine”. (Did you know that the third leading cause of death in this country is prescription drugs taken as prescribed).

The opposing side of this philosophy was championed by many during Pasteur times. Two physicians that did this were Claude Bernard and Antoine Bechamp.

Koch’s Postulates and Germ Terrain Dualism; Cellular Dust as Yet Another Term for Microzymas.
Ayoade S, B.Sc (Hons), Department of Physiology, Oct 26, 2017, J Mol Genet Med 2017, Vol 11(4): 297
The Germ-terrain duality theory of disease states that the etiology of certain diseases/diseased states is better explained as a complex interplay between germs and the inherent anatomical/physiological integrity of the body cells.
The Germ-terrain duality theory argues that the etiology of certain diseases is not fully explained merely by the presence of germs (Germ Theory) or by a mere loss of cellular integrity (Terrain Theory) [1-4].

As a result, the prevention and treatment of such diseases should focus not just on fighting germs but on maintaining/restoring the anatomical/physiological cellular integrity.

The Germ-Terrain Duality (GTD) theory is a harmonization of the current Germ Theory (popularized by Louis Pasteur) and the hitherto discarded Terrain Theory (popularized by Pierre Bechamp) [5-7].

Koch’s postulates and the germ terrain duality theory are not necessarily entirely mutually exclusive. They correlate and correspond tolerably well so far it is acknowledged that germs/microbes are scavengers of dead/damaged tissue/cellular waste.

What is cellular dust?
“Cellular Dust” is the term used to describe the smallest and basic unit of living thing according to the germ terrain duality theory.

Who discovered cellular dust?
Whereas it is often claimed that the first reference to cellular dust was made in the 1858 Dictionary of Medicine and Surgery in which Charles Robin described “very small granulations formed of organic substance”; Henle the anatomist in 1841 had noticed these micro sized entities but had only a vague appreciation for what they were. The general consensus of scientists at the time was that they were formless, meaningless particles. They were finally properly documented and comprehensively described by Professor Antoine Bechamp in the 1860s. The “little bodies” were named “microzymas” (Greek for “small ferments” or “small enzymes”) by Bechamp.

The Blood and Its Third Element
by Antoine Bechamp [book "sold" by GoodReads.com]

This book is the last work by Professor Antoine Bchamp, a man who should, by rights, be regarded today as one of the founders of modern medicine and biology. During his long career as an academic and researcher in nineteenth century France, Bchamp was widely known and respected as both a teacher and a researcher. As a leading academic, his work was well documented in scientific circles. Few made as much use of this fact as Louis Pasteur, who based much of his career on plagiarising and distorting Bchamp's research; in doing so, Pasteur secured for himself an undeserved place in the history of medical science. The Blood and its Third Element is Bchamp's explanation of his position, and his defense of it against Pasteur's mischief. This final major work of Bchamp's embodies the culmination of his life's research. This book contains, in detail, the elements of the microzymian theory of the organization of living organisms and organic materials. It has immediate and far reaching relevance to the fields of immunology, bacteriology, and cellular biology; and it shows that more than 100 years ago, the germ, or microbian, theory of disease was demonstrated by Bchamp to be without foundation. There is no single cause of disease. The ancients thought this, and Bchamp proved it and was written out of history for his trouble. The relevance of his work to the dilemmas that plague modern medical science remains as yet unrealized. This is a new edition of this title. The text has been extensively re-edited for today's reader.

Bechamp or Pasteur?: A Lost Chapter in the History of Biology
by R. Pearson and Ethel D. Hume [two books combined, sold by Amazon.com]

This volume contains new editions of two books which have been available only sporadically in the decades since their publication. R. Pearson’s Pasteur: Plagiarist, Imposter was originally published in 1942, and is a succinct introduction to both Louis Pasteur and Antoine Béchamp, and the reasons behind the troubled relationship that they shared for their entire working lives.

Whereas Pearson’s work is a valuable introduction to an often complex topic, it is Ethel Douglas Hume’s expansive and well-documented Béchamp or Pasteur? A Lost Chapter in the History of Biology which provides the main body of evidence. It covers the main points of contention between Béchamp and Pasteur in depth sufficient to satisfy any degree of scientific or historical scrutiny, and it contains, wherever possible, detailed references to the source material and supporting evidence.

Virtually no claim in Ms Hume’s book is undocumented – to have access to more material, one would need to be able to read French, and go to the original source material.

The reader will soon discern that neither Mr Pearson nor Ms Hume could ever be called fans of Pasteur or his ‘science’. They both declare their intentions openly; that they wish to contribute to the undoing of a massive medical and scientific fraud. The publication of this present edition of their work is undertaken in the same spirit.
