Tom Cowan, who was previously on my podcast in which he discussed his book The Contagion Myth and why germs don’t cause disease, is a doctor and author of multiple books challenging current medical paradigms, specifically relating to illness and optimal wellbeing.
Germs are not contagious
The germ theory, originally posited by Louis Pasteur and Robert Koch, posits that microorganisms are the culprits behind human diseases. However, this theory has been scrutinised for not fully aligning with Koch’s postulates, which suggest that for a microbe to be confirmed as the cause of a disease, it must be isolated and shown to produce the disease in a healthy host.
Despite bacteria being cast as the villains of illness since the 1800s, the past 20 years have seen a significant shift in scientific understanding. It’s now known that bacteria play a crucial role in our well-being, aiding digestion, bolstering the ‘immune system’, and even cleaning up necrotic tissue.
Bacteria tend to become pathogenic only in unhygienic conditions and where oxygen is scarce.
The Contagion Myth
Thomas Cowan and Sally Fallon Morell, in The Contagion Myth, present a compelling case for a re-evaluation of viruses, suggesting that they are not malevolent entities but rather beneficial exosomes produced by our cells.
According to them, these exosomes help detoxify the body and adapt to new environmental challenges, such as the radiation from 5G technology.
They point out that conventional measures like masks, social distancing, and vaccines may not be the answer to tackling ‘COVID-19’. Instead, they emphasises the need for proper etiquette and guidelines for the safe use of wireless technologies.
Improve your lifestyle
The authors also advocate for dietary and lifestyle changes to fortify the body against 5G and other electromagnetic frequencies.
Furthermore, Tom suggests that what we often interpret as sickness is actually a detoxification process.
In other words, symptoms such as colds or flu-like illnesses may be the body’s way of eliminating toxins. This detoxification process is triggered by various factors, including emotional stress, poor diet, household toxins, glyphosate exposure, or electromagnetic fields.
He presents the concept of exosomes, which are small packages of genetic material released by cells or tissues when they are poisoned, which he suggests are often misinterpreted as viruses.
This perspective implies a different understanding of the body’s response to illness, which could be seen as a form of immune response.
Immunity from what?
Tom argues that the ‘immune system’ concept is wrong and makes us fear invisible enemies that are trying to attack us all the time.
And if there’s nothing against which to ‘defend’, then there’s nothing to which to become immune.
Tom therefore argues that there is no such thing as an immune system.
Here’s my conversation with him.
