When thinking about wellness and health, it is the “terrain” which is truly important- less so the pathogen itself.

People tend to believe that some pathogen may come along and make them ill, and that they are at the mercy of these little beasts, such as cold and flu viruses, parasites, bacteria, or fungi. Louis Pasteur’s “germ theory” helped to set up this belief system. However, during Pasteur’s lifetime, 1822-1895, another scientist, Antoine Bechamp, described his “Law of the Terrain,” which stated that if the terrain of the organism was strong, healthy, in correct balance, it could easily withstand the onslaught of any or all pathogens. The terrain of your body is best thought of as a garden. If your garden has wonderful rich soil, water, sunlight, oxygen, nutrients, the plants growing there can better withstand the onslaught of invaders.

To quote Bechamp, “It is the terrain, milieu or environment that determines health or disease, NOT the pathogen.” This mature outlook on our biology was finally acknowledged by Pasteur, himself, on his deathbed. He recanted his germ theory, saying “It’s the terrain, not the germ.”

In fact, it is both. If your terrain is toxic it is much harder for your immune system to fight off a pathogen. The status of your terrain is determined primarily by four things: its pH (it’s acid/alkaline balance); its electric/magnetic charge (negative or positive); its degree of toxicity; and its nutritional status. For example, low oxygen levels, stagnating body fluids, or loss of electrical charge on red blood cells can all of these result in an unhealthy terrain.

Health is about balance.

Here is a wonderful article which explains all this in greater detail.

Diane grew up in Oregon, and says she can’t remember a time when she wasn’t singing. Her father gave her a guitar for Christmas when she was 13, and she taught herself folk and country styles, and started to write songs. At 19, believing her first talent was acting, she headed off to England, determined to study acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. But life can take some funny turns. Before she could arrange an interview, she was literally “discovered,” playing her guitar and singing to a small, private, New Year’s Eve party at a London hotel. IMG_0005 2A BBC television producer was there, a screen test followed, and the result was a network primetime series of variety specials! “The Diane Solomon Show” of the late 70s, was a great success, and she quickly became a regular on British TV, with other specials of her own, and numerous guest appearances, including several Royal Gala Specials. She recorded 5 albums, appeared on countless radio shows, TV hosting, and musical theater productions. She headed four major UK Theater concert tours of her own, toured with Glen Campbell on three European tours, and opened for a major Kenny Rogers’ tour in 1991. IMGBut then life took another turn, this time not so fortunate. She was diagnosed with the infamous M.E., or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and for the next three years was too ill to walk across the room unaided. For a total of seven years she struggled with half a life. In the darkest hours songwriting was her saving grace, and the title cut of her new CD, “Good Things Don’t Come Easy” was born of this troubled time. With the help a brilliant German homeopathic system of healing, plus nutrition and herbs, she regained her health. Diane was so impressed with these alternate therapies that she has since gained degrees in both nutrition and homeopathy, achieving a doctorate degree from the British Institute of Homeopathy. She practiced nutrition and homeopathy for fifteen years, using a combination of nutrients, herbs, homeopathic remedies, and diet and lifestyle recommendations. She describes dealing with people’s health issues as a kind of “onion layer” experience. Herbs, nutrients, and lifestyle changes are powerful, yet are in some way addressing the outer layers. They help enormously, but she has found that the major changes in people’s health comes from a deep homeopathic remedy, known as the constitutional remedy. Homeopathy is not an exact science, and thought, attention, focus, intuition, and yes, luck are involved in finding this remedy. When the right deep remedy is chosen, improvements in a client’s well being, both physically and psychologically, can be dramatic, even life-changing! Now focusing on writing, Diane lives in beautiful Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, with her husband, Mark Carey. She writes soft country, folk, and classical ballads, playing both guitar and piano. She has written several non-fiction books fields of nutrition and homeopathy, plus has ghost-written and/or edited seven books for clients, in various fields. She has just finished a middle grade mystery/fantasy novel with her husband Mark, entitled The Ravenstone: The Secret of Ninham Mountain, due for publication Sept 30 2016. Kindle cover final oct 10 2015She has also recently published a book on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, entitled, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: a guide to the homeopathic treatment of CFS/M.E. It was published in November, 2015, and was quickly the top selling book on Amazon in the homeopathic category. Sometimes called a “Renaissance Woman,” she writes, edits, researches, designs and builds gardens, always seeking more knowledge, more understanding, and more creative flow.
