I WANT TO CHANGE YOUR PARADIGM AS IT RELATES TO GERMS. So, I asked “Do You Want To Preserve Yourself?” Let me rephrase the question. Which state do you imagine is healthier, being nearly bacteria free or having nearly 10 times as many bacteria filling your body as you own cells? At first glance the answer seems to be “bacteria free”; at least you would want this state if you follow the Western Medical Model of using antibiotics to kill off “too” many bacteria.
A close friend recently had to start taking a medication for high blood pressure (at least until he loses weight). This caused a side effect which was constipation I told him to take probiotics (the bacteria similar to that in yogurt). That helped. He noted however that each time he had pickled fish for lunch, the next day he was constipated again. I looked at the pickled fish bottle and noted it had preservatives in it. I then asked him the question I posed to you above. Knowing me, he choose to have more not less bacteria and that is the correct answer! You see, even the supposedly small dose of preservatives in the pickled fish (Herring) was acting as an antibiotic in his gut and killing off the bacteria he needed for proper digestion. The blood pressure pill just made it more apparent. He did not believe me, so he tried it several times. Guess what? He now reads Every Bottle and Every Package to see if the item has preservatives and if it does he will not buy it!
I would like to encourage you to watch the video below (its short) which will clarify this text and also explain why you don’t want to use soap that kills bacteria on your skin (unless exposed to serious disease)!
