Last week, I discussed the concepts of the Germ Theory and why this was refuted and proved to not be valid. The Germ Theory of Disease claims that all diseases are caused by microbial organisms; whereas, the Terrain theory teaches that the condition of the host is what matters because disease tissue attracts germs.

  The Father of Pathology, Rudolf Virchow, wrote, “If I could live my life over again, I would devote it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat—diseased tissue— rather than being the cause of diseased tissue; such as, mosquitoes seek the stagnant water, but do not cause the pool to become stagnant.”

Renowned, Dr. Palmer, also declared,

                                                         “If the Germ Theory were Correct,
                                                   there would be No one living to Believe it!”

At Shifting the Paradigm: Insight into the Germ Theory by Jeanne Ohm.  The essentials for a healthy terrain can be broken into several general premises: Nourishing the Terrain, Coordinating the Function and Trusting the Process.

At the School of Natural Healing, they teach that there are primarily two aspects of promoting health and vitality.  These are Nourishing and Detoxing the body.  

In combining these thoughts and more, there is what is termed the Triad of Health

The Triad of Health      
         
There are three critical components that affect our health, and each of these influence the others.  Each of these also have modes of healing and specialists.  The three components are:  Biochemical, Structural, Mind & Emotion.
 
Biochemical
This side of our total health deals with many aspects which affect the chemistry of our body.  These would include diet and nutrition, herbs, water, all drugs, drinks, vitamins, all supplements, shots, and anything that we consume into our body.

Practitioners that deal with this aspect of our health are many, including medical doctors, homeopaths, herbalists, naturopaths, pharmacists, and others.  Although this is a very important part of our health, it does not equal the whole.
 
Structural
The structural component of our body is very important. Muscular and skeletal restrictions fall into this category. The shape of our skull affects how well the cerebral fluid flows, which affects the function of our brain, which affects our entire body. Our spine being out of alignment can cause pain and illness and loss of nervous energy to parts of our body. Practitioners that help in this realm are mainly chiropractors, massage therapists and physical therapists.
 
Mind & Emotion
Often we fail to realize how much our mind and emotions affect our health. Some doctors claim that 80-90% of those hospitalized stem from emotional problems. Often after a traumatic event, we get sick or develop some physical illness. There are several healers that help with this part of our health including pastors, psychologists, counselors, and others.  Modalities that have been used are Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Emotional Stress Release (ESR), Brain-spotting (BSP), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

  All three aspects of the Triad of Health need to be addressed in order for total health to happen.
