The frequency of chronic infectious diseases is steadily increasing – despite improved hygiene, sufficient food, vaccinations and antibiotics. The treatment prescribed by traditional medicine – suppressive antibiotics, antifungals or antivirals – unfortunately does nothing to help the patient, many of whom turn to Paracelsus for a cure after years of suffering. Fortunately we can offer them at long last a real solution.
The problem is that conventional medicine does not recognize the root causes – they blame the pathogen as the only factor. But the question they should ask is, why did my patient get sick? For example, when Lyme disease is diagnosed, antibiotics are given in large doses without searching for the actual contributing factors. Of course antibiotics may bring temporary symptom relief, but they also destroy the healthy intestinal flora and damage mitochondria, the energy powerhouse of the cells. Thus the antibiotics weaken the patient’s immune system without eradicating the infection, which returns in a chronic form. So treatment is in the true sense of the word “anti-biotic” – against life.
Why is the cause of infectious disease unknown, despite all the progress in science? Because there is no single cause: instead, there is a combination of negative factors unique to the patient that lead to a disturbance of the cellular milieu and then impairment of the immune system. As Antoine Bechamp, a student of Louis Pasteur, confirmed using darkfield microscopy: “The microbe is nothing, the terrain is everything!”
These negative factors include heavy metals, organic toxins and xenohormones, acidity, oxidative and nitrosative stress, dysbiosis, and lack of vital substances, which together lead inevitably to a weakened immune system and a destructive autoimmune tendency.
Not surprisingly, almost all our patients with chronic infections are hosting co-infections. Our laboratory analysis typically shows that most of such patients have a cellular immune deficiency as well as co-infections with Epstein-Barr Virus (EPV), influenza, herpes zoster, cytomegalovirus, chlamydia, toxoplasmosis or other infections. Importantly, there is always an intestinal dysbiosis present.
All these negative factors are compounded by unhealthy lifestyle factors, such as poor diet, lack of mental regeneration and lack of exercise. Many patients also suffer from genetically impaired detoxification function, which heightens the effect of the toxic loads.
Taken together, it’s no surprise these patients suffer from long-term chronic infections that their body simply cannot eliminate – their immune systems are just too weak.
Why is our biological medicine so successful in the treatment of these chronic infections? Because we recognize the whole organism, focus on the intestine as the main regulator of the immune system, and analyze the unique situation of the individual patient.We do not treat the diagnosis – we treat people and their unique medical history. As a result, the patient heals as the immune system recovers.
All in all, the combination of therapies and treatments the patient undergoes will significantly enhance the cellular metabolism so that the body will regain the ability to heal itself, combating chronic infection within a few weeks to months.
