Are Viruses Real?

Depending on who you talk to you may have heard that viruses have not been isolated and purified, viruses don’t cause disease, or you may hear people saying simply “viruses don’t exist.” This is confusing so I would like to take a moment to clear things up.      

Do Viruses Exist?  Are They Real? 

The simple answer is yes they exist, but no they don’t cause disease. Viruses are real in as much as there is a real substance that people can look at under a microscope. That material is cellular debris, which is dead (inert) and cannot take any action.

The difference between the medical model and the terrain model is in the action ascribed to the material. The medical industry claims that this dead material can attack the body, that it is a foreign invader which can replicate itself, and is the cause of symptoms. None of this has been proven but this is the claim the medical industry maintains. 

In the terrain model, we know this material to be cellular debris.  Virus material is the leftover broken pieces of cells that result from the breakdown of our cells either due to poison or toxin exposure or the natural cellular cycles. If we compare your body to a house that has been demolished we could name all the splinters of drywall and timbers viruses and classify them based on their various characteristics.

While these bits of cellular debris do exist, they do not cause disease as the medical industry claims they do. There is a high correlation between these bits of cellular debris and disease, but the correlation is not causation.  The more poisoned or toxic our bodies become, the more our cells die and the more of this debris we see. This cellular debris, labeled as viruses, is not the cause of symptoms, it is itself a symptom of a toxic body. 

Koch’s Postulates

Viral isolation is meant to prove the claim of action. Koch’s postulates is the standard by which the causation of disease by a microbe is proven.  Viruses and bacteria are both classified as microbes.  The German scientist, Robert Koch, maintained that for a specific microbe to be the cause of a disease:

  1. It must be found in every case of that disease.
  1. It must not be found when the disease is not present.
  1. It must be capable of living outside the tissues.
  1. It must then be capable of reintroduction into the organism and producing that disease.

As has been repeatedly demonstrated, viruses do not fulfill these prerequisites.

The specific requirements of “Koch’s Postulates” follow:

  1. A culture of the bacteria or virus must be taken from a diseased animal.
  1. It must then be grown in pure culture in a laboratory.
  1. After this, the culture has to be injected into a susceptible animal.
  1. It must cause the same disease, and culture must be taken from this animal.

To meet the standard of Koch’s postulates the material must be purified and isolated to be certain it is the only material present, then it must be introduced in its isolated and purified form into a healthy body and it must create the exact same symptoms in the healthy body that were present in the original body the virus was collected from.  To learn more about the difference between isolation and purification see the late David Crowe’s article here:

The purpose of Koch’s postulates is to apply the scientific method to this idea of microbial illness and disease causation.  The scientific method is always about determining causation – mainstream science admits Koch’s postulates can not be applied to viruses. Viral material has always failed to meet the standard of Koch’s postulates so instead of accepting that correlation is not causation and looking for a more rational explanation for why the body creates cleaning and repair symptoms, the medical system continues to move the goalposts to hold on to their highly profitable germ theory.  

Are viruses alive?  Can they replicate and attack the body?

“Decomposed cell debris is precisely what virologists and physicians are calling viruses. They regard viruses as living entities when, in fact, medics have not in all history observed any quality of life they ascribe to viruses. What is called ‘virus’ is always dead. It’s never been observed to be alive. It doesn’t have the first prerequisites of life, that is, metabolic and control mechanisms. Even bacteria have that. I repeat that what is called ‘viruses’ are nothing more than components of decomposed cells.”

– T.C. Fry “Life Science Course”

Viruses are not alive and therefore cannot replicate, they are simply garbage being taken out by the body as it repairs and replaces cells. They are present sometimes when symptoms are present because the body has been exposed to a toxin, poison, or irritant. The symptoms themselves are all expulsion or repair symptoms created by the body as a way to repair the damage created by exposure to the poison or toxin. These poisons or toxins can be the inappropriate foods we eat, environmental toxins like indoor air pollutants, dust, mold, or other harmful substances, water-based contaminants, or even stress that can lead to the body needing to clean and repair. 

“Viruses as an entitative existence are a medical myth. If diseases are caused by uneliminated metabolic debris, which is what so-called viruses are, then the medics have a point. But we Hygienists call that metabolic debris retained wastes, not viruses. Viruses are nothing more than the proteinacious debris of spent cells. Their accumulation can precipitate a healing crisis in the body. When this occurs, the body is likely to transport bacteria to the scene to aid it in cleaning up the mess, but the bacteria did not cause the problem. The habits and practices of the sufferer must be looked to as the real culprits. Once these deleterious habits and practices are discontinued, there will be no further toxic accumulations and thus the need for disease or healing crises will cease to exist. Sickness-free health will exist thereafter.”

– T.C. Fry “Life Science Course”

The ways we live today are unnatural, our diets are far from the natural foods which our bodies are designed to process.  We are designed to metabolize whole raw fruits and tender leafy greens.   We cook our food, we add food coloring, preservatives, inorganic minerals, and other toxins to our foods. We eat fermented (rotten) foods and are taught to believe they are beneficial to our bodies.  We smoke and drink alcohol and intake other poisons with no nutrient benefit to the body.  All of this burden must be expelled for the body to continue to function.   Our self-healing, self-cleaning bodies use expulsion mechanisms like coughing, sneezing, runny nose, mucus, fever, diarrhea, and vomiting to expel this waste when it reaches a critical mass.  

As a result of all of the mistakes of living, we make day to day our cells break down and are damaged and so they decompose.   

“Other components of the decomposed cell are the RNA and DNA. These are toxic while in the system. If they accumulate as they do in most humans in today’s society, a condition of intoxication (toxemia and toxicosis) exists. These are what medical people call viruses, and they mistakenly attribute to this dead debris the powers of life and malevolence.”

Cellular Debris vs Attacking Entities

So to summarize, there is a substance that lab techs look at under a microscope, the disease industry calls this substance “viruses” and the terrain model calls this cellular waste or debris.  The medical industry claims without proof that this dead debris is an invading force that attacks the body, causes symptoms and creates disease.  The terrain model says this cellular debris is a result of a toxic body and the symptoms are the body cleaning and repairing itself.   In either model, the substance is acknowledged as existing, but the functions are vastly different.   

Self-Healing Bodies vs Poison Deficiency

In the terrain model, we know that when we put healing conditions into place the body responds to these healing conditions by taking action to detoxify.  Detox mechanisms (now considered symptoms)  include fever, mucus, diarrhea, vomiting, extreme fatigue, headaches, sweating, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, rashes, and a number of other expulsion symptoms.   Once the expulsion symptoms are complete the chronic disease symptoms are alleviated and health improves.   Sometimes the body goes through several of these healing events and after each event, the overall health of the body is drastically improved.   Flu will bring about the removal of tumors by the body or the healing of a neurological disorder.   A cold will be followed by the cessation of chronic headaches or migraines.  With each cleaning event, the person’s (or animal’s) health improves.  If we wish to heal from chronic disease we must embrace the body’s natural healing processes.   

The medical model sees the body’s natural cleaning and repair processes as mistakes. They believe these mistakes require the application of drugs (more accurately described as poisons) to stop the symptoms and correct the body. Essentially, in the medical model your body is deficient in this particular poison and the application of the poison is said to correct the deficiency.   If a healthy individual was to take the poisons applied to a person suffering a cold or flu they would get ill, but in the medical model applying these same substances is said to take a weakened body and return it to normal function.   In reality, the weakened body has been stopped from cleaning and must instead progress up the ladder of disease, working its way to chronic disease and eventually cancer and tumors to store all of the waste that it cannot remove when the cold and flu healing event symptoms are suppressed.  

The cold is the cure created by the self-healing, self-cleaning body.  The cold is only required because we misfeed our bodies and expose them to an unending stream of toxins and poisons.   Remove the cause and the body will stop needing these regular cleanouts.   Return to the natural diet, get fresh air, sunshine, and daily exercise and health is 100% in your control.

The Ideal Eating Window

Why do we eat between 12 pm and 6 or 8 pm?

We are told by a chronically sick society that we need a balanced breakfast early in the morning.  

From the mainstream article “What Does a Healthy Breakfast Look Like?” 

“We asked Charlotte Furman, a registered dietitian and Technology and Wellness Manager in the Department of Food and Nutrition at UW Medical Center, to help us understand what a healthy breakfast should look like. Furman loves breakfast—it’s her favorite meal of the day. The goal is not to feel like you are depriving yourself of anything, but instead rewarding yourself—with new patterns, new flavors, and hopefully renewed energy and improved mood and health.” 

Firman is already not starting with a good understanding of eating to live, her focus is on “rewarding yourself” through the poisoning of your body.   ?

The article goes on to tell us to stuff ourselves early in the morning by combining every type of food into a single meal that will take hours to digest and will create both ammonia and alcohol in our system as the proteins and carbohydrates both fail to digest quickly and efficiently: 

“What foods make a nutritious breakfast?

For the most nutritious breakfast, try to choose whole, unprocessed foods from each of the five food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, protein foods, and dairy. Try to include proteins from foods like yogurts (look for varieties with less sugar added), eggs, nuts and seeds or legumes. Also try to include complex carbohydrates such as whole fruits and vegetables, and whole grains (i.e. oatmeal) that provide fiber and will help you feel full longer.”

They then go on to provide us with a list of examples of a “healthy breakfast”: 

“Oatmeal with fruit and flax or chia seeds

Whole wheat toast with peanut butter and banana

Whole wheat toast with pesto, avocado and egg

Whole wheat crepes with yogurt and fruit”

Yikes ? 

Things have changed a little from the recommendation of “Eggs, whole grain toast, orange juice, milk, and cereal that I grew up with, but I cannot say they have improved at all.   

Aside from the food combining disasters, this dietitian, and nearly all others, recommends an early meal well before noon. So what’s wrong with that? What are they ignoring about our physiology when they recommend breaking the fast early in the morning?

Digestive Phases

Our body has three natural stages that the digestive process goes through. These are digestion, assimilation, and elimination.

The digestive processes run from approximately noon until around 8 PM. 

Assimilation processes run from about 8 PM until 4 AM.  

The elimination process is run from 4 AM until 12 noon. 

When we force our body to digest at 8 AM or 9 AM when the body is still in the elimination phase our digestion will be sluggish and our elimination will be impaired. 

This has a double negative effect on the body. First, sluggish digestion does not efficiently digest food thereby creating more waste and more fermentation in the system. The second is the early shift away from elimination means the body is eliminating less.  

When you combine these two factors the result is far more waste being trapped in the system, leading to disease conditions.  

One way we can witness this for ourselves is in the gas and bloating that often results after an early morning fruit meal.  The cleaner your system becomes, the more you will become aware of this. 

When we eat only during the digestion window we find that our mind is clearer and we have more energy early in the day to get through our tasks.   We have less energy drain and we also allow the repairs to the digestive system to be made, so we have less of the pains of false hunger and are less likely to overeat later in the day.   

Another way we can see this process in action is all of the people who are awoken at or around 4 am, often with a nightmare, anxiety, or some other form of distress.  As the body shifts into elimination, the harmful substances irritate the nerves of the digestive tract and the body’s response is to reflect that discomfort.   

Clinical Studies

Recently studies on the gut microbiome have confirmed these natural rhythms of the body:  

“Many microbes in the digestive tract do not maintain a constant level of their relative abundance but show daily oscillations under normal conditions. Recent evidence indicates that chronic jetlag, constant darkness, or deletion of the circadian core gene can alter the composition of gut microbiota and dampen the daily oscillation of gut microbes.”

“External light-dark cycle shapes gut microbiota through intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells” Chi-Chan Lee et al.

“Researchers noted that the basic rhythmicity of the gut microbiota is described by an increase of Firmicutes during feeding periods followed by its decrease over time during the day. Although some gut bacteria such as Bacteroidetes, Proteobacteria and Verrucomicrobia are more present during fasting periods, bacteria that feed on fiber grow at night as food residues reach the colon. Polyphenol and some prebiotic fibers such as GOS (galactooligosaccharides), found in plant sources and breast milk, respectively, are able to consolidate the circadian rhythm by increasing gut microbiota diversity.”

“Gut microbiota rhythmicity is expressed through the secretion of molecules at specific times of the day. At night, genes related to energy metabolism, DNA repair and cell growth are enacted, while during the day, bacteria produce molecules that consolidate their own colonization of the gut.”

“The Gut Microbiota Clock: the close connection between gut microbiota, dietary patterns, and the circadian rhythm”

“Indeed, over the past 3 years, evidence has emerged revealing compositional oscillation of the fecal microbiota during the 24-h light-dark cycle – the gut microbiome exhibits compositional and functional structures at different times of day (Thaiss et al., 2014; Zarrinpar et al., 2014; Liang et al., 2015).

Thaiss et al. (2014) reported the time-of-day–dependent composition of the murine fecal microbiota (Thaiss et al., 2014) (Figure 2a). More than 15% of detected OTUs (Operational Taxonomical Units) undergo daily oscillation in their relative abundance, including Lactobacillus reuteri, Dehalobacterium spp., and other species belonging to Clostridiales, Lactobacillales, and Bacteroidales. Additional support was added later by another 2 groups: Zarrinpar et al. (2014) reported that 17% of OTUs are cyclical (Zarrinpar et al., 2014), and we reported oscillation of the relative abundance of genera belonging to Bacteroidetes, Firmicutes, and Proteobacteria (Liang et al., 2015). In addition to the fluctuation in relative taxonomic abundance, the total biomass of the gut bacterial community in mice is higher during the dark phase when the animals are active(Liang et al.,2015). The discovery of microbial oscillation in the gut was detectable despite the dramatic variability of microbiota composition from different cages and animal facilities (Deloris Alexander et al., 2006; Rausch et al., 2016).”

Why do people feel compelled to eat early in the morning?

This habit of early eating is more likely a result of the “hunger” pains caused by the ingestion of harmful substances. True hunger is never evidenced by pain. Pain is part of the healing process. However, if we are stuffing our bodies with harmful substances and mis-combing foods creating fermentation and putrefaction inside our digestive tract there will be a need each morning to make repairs, which triggers pain in the stomach. Feeding temporarily stops those repairs and stops the pain, reinforcing the false idea of hunger.

When we return to the natural diet of raw fruits, tender leafy greens, raw nuts, seeds, and tender vegetables we remove the substances from our diet that are injuring our tissues, and as the body heals we see these hunger pains disappear. Instead, we are free to choose to eat only when the body requires fuel and we become free of the cravings which enslave us and keep us trapped in unhealthy cycles of eating.
