COVID-19 began threatening the world’s population around December of last year. It has been almost a year and the world is still battling it. Medical experts have not yet found any definite solution to it. Sadly, many of them have succumb to it including some specialists in the field of infectious diseases. COVID-19 did not only cause the loss of numerous lives globally but also brought havoc to the growing economy of the affected countries, especially the Third World, because of the community quarantine that prevented most bread earners from working.
How long will the pandemic exist? Where will the disease take us? We do not see any solution coming very soon. Many countries have been developing their own versions of the vaccines but how effective will the vaccines be? What if, after an effective vaccine be ready, will it still be potent against the strain of SARS Coronavirus 2 (SARS CoV 2) that had undergone some mutations? The article posted in News Medical Life Sciences last October 1, 2020 written by Angela Betsaida B. Laguipo, BSN was entitled “23 SARS CoV-2 strains circulating in the Philippines”. (https://www.news-medical.net/news/20201001/23-SARS-CoV-2-strains-circulating-in-the-Philippines.aspx). Twenty-three strains of SARS CoV-2 strains to deal with is a very tedious task to face.
In my three decades of medical practice, I made a practice shift in the last decade. For almost 15 years, I ceased prescribing synthetic chemicals to my patients. Instead, I focused on utilizing nutrients to manage their health problems. Surprisingly, I witnessed amazing results. I learned that working on restoring good health was more effective than conquering diseases. Through my research, I met an extraordinary person renowned to be the world’s greatest biologist. His name is Dr. Pierre Jacques Antoine Bechamp. He was a French Physician, a contemporary of Louis Pasteur. Mr. Pasteur was the person who conceptualized the Germ Theory that most of the medical practitioners follow today. Louis Pasteur was a chemist by profession but due to his political affiliation, his works were better accepted than those of Dr. Bechamp and it seems that this event has brought “chaos” to the medical science of today.
Dr. Bechamp was a Doctor of Medicine and once a Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at the Universite Lille Nord de France, Doctor of Pharmacology, a Biochemist and he possessed several credentials related to the medical sciences. Through Dr. Bechamp’s studies, I learned that two important factors cause diseases. First, the lack of essential nutrients, and the second, the accumulation of excess toxins in the body.
There are six essential nutrients the body requires. These are carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and water. Of these, minerals and water are the most ignored and neglected essential nutrients and their lack is the primary cause of diseases today. I can boldly declare this statement since for the past 14 years, I only prescribe these essential nutrients to my patients and they amazingly recover from their chronic diseases that even specialists in the field have very difficult time managing. Examples are diabetes, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, arrhythmia, mitral valve prolapse, goiter, cataract, sinusitis, vertigo, asthma, tuberculosis, arthritis, osteoporosis, gastritis, gallstones, gastroesophageal reflux, hemorrhoids, psoriasis, pimples, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms and cramps, some stages of cancer, and many more.
With this pandemic around, I experimented on how my approach could help. According to Dr. Bechamp, infection occurs when the environment inside the body that he named “the terrain” becomes filthy or diseased. He described in his Cellular Theory of Disease Causation or the Pleomorphic Theory that within the body is an enzyme that is the beginning of every life. This enzyme called the “microzyma” is either life-giving or death-causing. This enzyme transforms into a state depending on the terrain in which it is placed in. When the terrain is clean and healthy, it remains inactive and dormant. But when the terrain changes and become imbalanced, the microzyma transforms to become an organism whose role is to revert the terrain back to the healthier, balanced state. So, depending on degree of filthiness of the terrain, the microzyma transforms to become a virus, bacteria or fungus. A microzyma becomes a virus for it to destroy weak cells before they evolve to become mutant or precancerous cells. Cells become weak when not provided with enough nutrients for it to sustain life or when acidic metabolic wastes and other forms of toxins accumulate. When a significant number of cells are destroyed, the virus transforms to become a bacterium whose function is to eat up the dead cells so they can be eliminated from the terrain. The weak and dead cells are foods for these microorganisms. As their population increases, they will also create their own wastes that will add to the filthiness of the terrain and thus, further cause an imbalance in the terrain. This now results to a diseased state that will manifest symptoms. As a medical practitioner, I have commonly observed that infections usually begin as a viral infection first and then bacterial infection sets in later in the course. Thus, it is very important to maintain a balanced, health terrain to prevent infection especially in this time of the pandemic.
To avert infection, I simply emphasize the importance of two essential nutrients namely, water and minerals. Water because 70 percent of the adult body consists of water and because water have vital functions in the body: W – works to keep body cells toned; A – assists in weight loss; T – transports nutrients and oxygen throughout the body; E – eliminates acidic metabolic wastes and toxins out of the body; and R – regulates body temperature. No other beverage can perform these functions. Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, author of “Your Body’s Many Cries For Water,” declared that water is the only prescribed beverage for the human body and nothing substitutes for water. About 98 percent of my patients do not drink water but their favorite commercial beverages that do not perform the vital functions of water.
Because of the very prevalent water pollution everywhere, our drinking water should be processed through several purification technologies before we can drink it. Purification does not only eliminate the common contaminants in water but also the healthy minerals in it. Without the minerals, purified water becomes acidic, dead and unhealthy to drink. Thus, after purification, it is recommended that the lost healthy minerals be restored.
Minerals must be restored in purified water because mineral deficiency is very prevalent today. About 80 percent of today’s population lack one or several minerals in their bodies. Mineral deficiency as the cause of disease was tackled 84 years ago as cited in the U.S. Senate Document 264 during the 74th Congress held in July 5, 1936. Several medical doctors and nutritionists stressed the role of nutrition to disease causation and they identified the culprit as the deficiency in any one of the more important trace minerals.
Unknown to many, including medical professionals, minerals have these vital functions: M – maintain electrical nerve impulses; I – improve muscle actions; N – neutralize stress; E – extract toxins out of the cells; R – regulate water contents of the body; A – activate enzymatic functions; L – load up to strengthen the immune system; and S – sustain cell life. Deficiency in minerals in the body will create one or more dysfunctions resulting to a disease. With the mainstream medicine focusing on the use of pharmaceutical products rather than on nutrients to resolve illnesses, numerous chronic diseases still persist and worse, they have become more prevalent and affecting the younger generation too. All these are happening despite the advancement in medical research and technology.
For the past 14 years, I have utilized the world’s most natural, food-grade, healthiest, life-giving, ionic mineral supplement branded as IONIQUE® Mineral Drops. I require my patients to add a specific number of drops to their drinking water and drink it on a certain time interval depending on the illness. The proper schedule of intake is taught in our branch offices located in Naga City, Camarines Sur; Cubao Quezon City; Cebu City, and Davao City.

So, what is the simplest way one can adopt to prevent COVID-19? Focus on nutrition and a healthy lifestyle! Provide your body with the essential nutrients that will provide the body the essentials to keep it healthy. Do your best to provide your body with complete essential nutrients. Focus on the importance of the two most neglected essential nutrients – water and minerals. Avoid the risk factors that will add more toxins into the body. Eat fresh foods bought from the market. Avoid refined foods, instant foods, processed foods and several commercial beverages that are laden with much chemicals that harm the cells. As you have read, water and minerals have vital roles in keeping the body free from toxins the letter “E” found in their words – eliminate acidic metabolic wastes and toxins out of the body, and extract toxins out of the cells. With much essential nutrients and least acidic metabolic wastes and toxins, you will develop a very powerful immune system, the best weapon to fight the pandemic. This is much, much better than vaccines and medications. Furthermore, a strong immune system does not only fight COVID-19, the cause of the present pandemic but other infectious diseases that you may encounter today and in the future as well! Who knows what disease will we face in the years to come?
