According to scientist Raymond Francis, there is only one disease. However, there are 2 causes (deficiency and toxicity) and 6 pathways.
What is this one disease? Francis believed that it was simply the malfunctioning of the cell.
What are the two causes? Deficiency and Toxicity.
What are the six pathways? Nutrition, Toxin, Mental, Physical, Genetic, and Medical.
So, according to the philosophy of Raymond Francis:
"All disease is the result of malfunctioning cells caused by deficiency and toxicity (through one or more of the six pathways).
All you have to do is restore those cells to normal function by
eliminating deficiency and toxicity...
Then the dis-ease will 'disappear'—albeit, this is sometimes easier said than done."
"Scientists working for pharmaceutical companies dream up names of new diseases and lists of symptoms every day of the year.
This in no way means there are millions of diseases; only that they can now patent a chemical to be marketed as a panacea or 'cure' for that targeted 'disease'."
That is, until enough people are harmed or killed by the drug and it is finally taken off the market.
Drugs do not cure disease; they merely 'manage' it, causing even more damage and without ever getting to the root cause.
In fact, more than three out of four Americans have a diagnosable chronic disease, many times brought on or made worse by 'medication'.
The celebrated English social reformer and statistician, and founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale, has stated:
“The specific disease doctrine is the grand refuge of weak, uncultured, unstable minds...There are no specific diseases.”
Nightingale who had received her medical training at The Institution of Kaiserswerth in Germany, and also had many years of observation in the medical field, would most certainly have known what she was talking about.
She was a 'champion' of social and medical reform, and advocated hygiene over the use of drugs alone to manage disease.
This makes complete sense in light of the One Disease Theory as the body's cells will malfunction if they are overwhelmed by too many germs, bacteria and toxins.
This will help to eliminate one of the two causes of disease: toxicity. Good nutrition can then be used to help with the other cause: deficiency.
Good luck and God's blessings in your journey to health! : )
