Antoine Bechamp, Pleomorphism and Microzymas

David Major


An introduction to Antoine Bechamp.

Bechamp should, by rights, be regarded today as one of the founders of modern medicine and biology. During his long career as an academic and researcher in nineteenth century France, Béchamp was widely known and respected as both a teacher and a researcher. As a leading academic, his work was well documented in scientific circles. His last book, The Blood and its Third Element, documents his most important experiments and findings.

Few made as much use of this fact as Louis Pasteur, who based much of his career on plagiarising and distorting Béchamp’s research.

Preface to ‘The Blood and its Third Element’

Antoine Bechamp


The author’s preface to ‘The Blood and its Third Element’.

This work upon the blood, which I present at last to the learned public, is the crown to a collection of works upon ferments and fermentation, spontaneous generation, albuminoid substances, organization, physiology and general pathology which I have pursued without relaxation since 1854, at the same time with other researches of pure chemistry more or less directly related to them, and, it must be added, in the midst of a thousand difficulties raised up by relentless opponents from all sides, especially whence I least expected them.

To solve some very delicate problems I had to create new methods of research and of physiological, chemical and anatomical analysis. Ever since 1857 these researches have been directed by a precise design to a determined end: the enunciation of a new doctrine regarding organization and life.

It led to the microzymian theory of the living organization, which has led to the discovery of the true nature of blood by that of its third anatomical element, and, at last, to a rational, natural explanation of the phenomenon called its spontaneous coagulation.

A History of the Germ Theory

Extract from Bechamp or Pasteur?

If you go back into the history of the medical profession and the various ideas regarding the cause of disease that were held by leading physicians before Pasteur first promulgated his notorious “germ theory”, you will find convincing evidence that Pasteur discovered nothing, and that he deliberately appropriated, falsified and perverted another man’s work. The ‘germ theory’, so-called, long antedated Pasteur – so long, in fact, that he was able to present it as new; and he got away with it.

Notes on the Coagulation of the Blood

Antoine Bechamp


Extract from the book ‘The Blood and its Third Element’.

The object of this work is the solution of a problem of the first order; to show the real nature of the blood, and to demonstrate the character of its organization. It has, besides, a secondary purpose; the solution of a problem long ago stated, but never solved – the cause of its coagulation, correctly regarded as spontaneous, after it has issued from the blood vessels.

The conclusion arrived at is that the blood is a flowing tissue, spontaneously alterable in the same manner as are all other tissues withdrawn from the animal, coagulation of the blood being only the first phase of its spontaneous change.

On Bechamp and Pleomorphism

The Life Enthusiast


Article

“…all natural organic matters (matters that once lived), absolutely protected from atmospheric germs, invariably and spontaneously alter and ferment, because they necessarily and inherently contain within themselves the agents of their spontaneous alteration, digestion, dissolution”. These agents are of course the self same Protits of Enderlein. As noted, Béchamp called them Microzymas. He proved that all animal and plant cells contain these tiny particles which continue to live after the death of the organism and out of which microorganisms can develop. In his book Mycrozymas, Béchamp laid the foundation for the concept of pleomorphism….”

Bechamp or Pasteur?

Ethel Hume


Hardcover, paperback, Kindle, Epub.

“An amazing alternative interpretation of biochemical history. A compelling account of Pasteur’s plagiarism and a strong reminder of the powers at work in the pharmaceutical and regulatory industry.”

“We have been so ingrained for our entire lives to think and live in a certain way… It is challenging to begin this epic saga of removing the veil of lies, opening your thought patterns to something outside of our normal belief patterns, and look at the evidence subjectively. There is so much to take in … I am on my third read and it is like reading it for the first time.”

The Blood and its Third Element

Antoine Bechamp


Paperback, Kindle, epub.

“This is an excellent book for knowledge seekers who do not take anything at face value…”

“What Dr. Béchamp is describing is a foundational concept. According to his experiments and observations, these tiny particles he named “microzymas” have an active role in sustaining and also in terminating life. Béchamp searched for and found the same particles and activity even in limestone, from the ancient shelled creatures whose bodies were incorporated into the stone. They still retained their activity. As the organizing life-principle of a complex body ceases to operate – as it dies – the microzymas take up their role of breaking it down and returning its elements to nature to be taken up by other life forms.”
