Candida Is “Not” Contagious

Therefore, germs, viruses, bacteria, candida/fungus, and even cancer cannot be contagious. That is because they are created in an unhealthy body in order to clean itself up of toxins and damaging substances. That’s why it is not possible to “catch” them from any outside source or from another person, anymore than you can catch someone else’s nutrient imbalances or their broken finger.

In The Third Element of The Blood, Antonie Bechamp writes: “It is the same with animals. It is not the inoculated organisms which multiply, but their presence and the liquid which saturates them causes a change in the surrounding medium which enables the normal microzymas of the organism to evolve in a diseased manner, either reaching or not reaching the state of a bacterium. The disease is not the consequence of the new mode of being of the normal microzymas; the fever which ensues is only the result of this new method of functioning and of the effort of the organism to rid itself of the products of an abnormal fermentation and disassimilation, while inducing a return of the diseased microzymas to the physiological condition.

Also babies do not catch candida from the birth canal, as claimed, since they acquire their failing health upon conception because of their parents poor “nutritional status”, as Dr. Price writes in Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, Chapter 21 Practical application of primitive wisdom [primitive refers to nonindustrial society or culture]: 

“Of the many problems on which the experience of the primitive races can throw light, probably none is more pressing than practical procedures for improving child life. Since this has been shown to be largely dependent upon the architectural design, as determined by the health of the parental germ cells [DNA/genes upon conception], and by the prenatal environment of the child, the program that is to be successful must begin early enough to obviate [to anticipate and prevent or eliminate] by effective measures these various disturbing forces.

The normal determining factors that are of hereditary origin may be interrupted in a given generation but need not become fixed [unchanging] characteristics in the future generations. This question of parental nutrition, accordingly, constitutes a fundamental determining factor in the health and physical perfection of the offspring. This means that if either parent has failing health the baby will also have failing health.
