A living organism (like your body) is greater than the sum of its parts, and every system contains individual cells. Any time a cell does not perform to the benefit of the greater whole, the system’s vitality decreases, and when a system can’t function up to par, it suffers. Resistance drops, making the body susceptible to invasion and domination by germs.
When germs find a congenial host, they begin to multiply. Germs cannot dictate their actions or create their ideal environment. Instead, they rely on finding hospitable environments that already exist. They find hosts that offer them the best opportunity for sustained existence and propagation.
If bacteria that typically belong in your garden suddenly take up residence in your lungs, you may perceive the intruding bacteria as “bad,” but they are merely in the wrong place. We need to relocate them. There’s no such thing as a “bad” germ; however, they, like people, can be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
All pathogenic germs (those that are harmful to the body) are scavengers. They don’t attack normal, vital, healthy cells or tissue. They can’t feed on healthy cells. They grow and prosper when damaged cells serve as a generous host that provides ample nutrition and an accommodating environment.
Germs, including the alleged “cold germs,” don’t suddenly appear in our lives to cause us grief. They are around us and in us all the time. By keeping your body as fit as possible through diet and system balancing, you can co-exist with germs peacefully. Germs aren’t the cause of disease – low resistance
