The average doctor today under the Western system of medicine has spent over ten years acquiring training to learn about disease causation. Hence, there is a tendency among many physicians to look for a positive “cause-and-effect” relationship in which something clearly causes something else – a virus, or bacteria must “cause” a disease. The idea that disease is caused by an outside agency, or virus is rooted in the Germ Theory of disease, first proposed by the French scientist, Louis Pasteur in the mid-1800’s.
There are many diseases that plague the human family today which modern science has spent many billions of dollars searching for a prevention or cure, but they are no closer to the answers today than they were over a hundred years ago. Perhaps the main reason is that they are still looking for that “something” which causes these diseases instead of the “lack” of something.
The ultimate solution to the scientist’s most puzzling medical problem is to be found in a near-primitive concoction of herbs and foods. However, medical doctors have been trained to search for “complex” answers rather than looking to the simple laws of nature. As Dr. Laila Afrika, pioneer of African ethnomedicine put it aptly:
“In health science they (western doctors) believe that the body destroys itself with disease. Therefore, they must give toxic, poisonous drugs and vaccines to stop the body from killing itself. In Caucasian medical science, they believe that evil bacteria and virus are trying to kill good bacteria and virus.”
