Comparison of Fermentation to Inflammation

Outline of the section: There is a remarkable similarity between alcoholic fermentation and the processes of feverish and inflammatory diseases. Both are processes of oxidation or combustion, accompanied by increased chemical activity and temperature. Both run a natural, orderly course and when properly managed bring about certain normal, beneficial results. When not controlled or when suddenly arrested and suppressed, both may result in permanently abnormal and undesirable conditions. Find out more information in this section.

Both processes depend on three essential factors:

Alcoholic Fermentation
depends on--

Feverish and
Inflammatory Diseases depend on--

(1) A watery solution corresponding to
(1) Living blood and tissues.
(2) Sugar, corresponding to (2) Waste and morbid matter in the blood.
(3) Yeast, corresponding to (3) Microzyma, bacteria and parasites in blood and tissues.

The following may serve as an explanation of the preceding diagram. Modern allopathic materia medica is founded largely on the assumption that bacteria and parasites of their own accord create disease conditions. From this they draw the natural conclusion that to kill the germs is equivalent to curing the disease. Almost their entire therapeutic efforts are directed to discovering, killing and eliminating by poisonous drugs, serums, antitoxins and by the surgeon's knife, the bacteria and parasites of disease.

The following demonstrations, however, will prove that the primary assumption of allopathy, as well as its resulting conclusions, are fallacious and that a practice built on these false foundations must of necessity be pregnant with disastrous results.

First or Hereditary Stage of Disease


Water plus a sugar solution (grape juice) corresponds to

A body plus hereditary and acquired morbid matter.

Second or Acute Inflammatory Stage of Disease


• Yeast lives on sugar plus some proteid. While feeding on these, the yeast germ digests or splits up the sugar into alcohol and carbonic acid gas.

• Disintegration of the sugar molecules is accompanied by the liberation of heat and by accelerated atomic motion. The temperature rises perceptibly, bubbles of carbonic acid gas and a scum consisting of dead and live yeast germs and of other debris rises to the surface. Processes of fermentation are in many respects identical with processes of digestion, combustion or oxidation. The entire fermenting fluid is in violent commotion.

• If fermentation is allowed to run its natural course, within certain limitations of temperature, until all sugar in the fluid is consumed, the process ceases of its own accord, chemical activity and temperature subside, and the resulting product is a wine-like fluid of crystal clearness.

• Alcohol, while itself the product of fermentation, as it accumulates in the fluid, checks fermentation.


• Microzyma, while feeding on morbid matter, develop into bacteria or germs of putrefaction, and these in turn while feeding on pathogenic materials decompose them into simpler compounds suitable for neutralization and elimination. The resulting ashes or debris (see yeast scum) are eliminated through the natural channels of depuration and in the forms of pus, catarrhal and other morbid discharges. These processes of combustion and elimination of disease matter are usually termed fevers, inflammations, boils, abscesses, etc. Like fermentation they are accompanied by rise in temperature, accelerated (motion) pulse, elimination of effete matter, etc.

• If the acute inflammatory processes in the body are allowed to run their natural course, within certain limitations of temperature until all morbid matter is consumed and eliminated, the result is a cleaner, healthier body. (Fever can be easily controlled within safe limits by cold water applications, fasting, etc.)

• The products of bacterial activity tend to check bacterial growth and development.

From this it, will be perceived that, the processes of fermentation as well as of acute diseases are to a certain extent self-limited by their own effete products.

If the acute activities in the body run their natural course and terminate in normal conditions, then the whitish signs of inflammation in the iris gradually disappear and give way to the normal blue or brown.

The second or acute inflammatory stage of encumbrance as recorded in the iris of the eye is illustrated in Fig. 14, Series I, and Figs. 10 and Fig.11.
