The Blood and its Third Anatomical Element. Preliminary steps to the discovery of the real nature of fibrin and of the third anatomical element of the blood. Demonstration that fibrin is not a proximate principle, but a false membrane of microzymas. Birth of bacteria in the fibrin. The antiine microzymas and their properties compared with those of the fibrin.

The fibrinous microzymas liquify starch and then become bacteria. The microzymas of fibrin decompose oxygenated water. Fibrin owes to its living microzymas the faculty of being dissolved in very dilute hydrochloric acid. Fibrin changes spontaneously without undergoing anhoine putrefaction. The molecular granulations of the change without fetid putrefaction of the fibrin: Theory of the decomposition of oxygenated water by fibrin and by the fibrinous microzymas.

Theory of the liquifaction of fecula starch by fibrin and by the fibrinous microzymas. Theory of the spontaneous alteration of fibrin, whether in very dilute hydrochloric acid or in carbolized water.

Coagulation of blood diffused in water. Second phase of the spontaneous alteration of the blood. The following experiment demonstrates that oxygen has antooine influence in the phenomenon of the destruction of the globules in defibrinated blood.

On the 16th October,at Bassing, in the department of Bas-Rhein, France, since ceded to Germanywas born a child by whose name the nineteenth century will come to be known, anttoine are the centuries of Copernicus, of Galileo and of Newton by their several names. Antoine Bechamp, the babe ofdied on the 15th April,fourteen days after he was first visited by an aged American physician between whom and himself a correspondence had passed for several years on the subject of the researches and wonderful discoveries of Professor Bechamp and anntoine collaborators.

The American physician made his visit to Paris for the purpose of becoming personally acquainted with Professor Bechamp, who, amtoine his family stated, had looked forward with eager anticipation to such a visit. The translator had long previously submitted to the professor an extensive summary of his physiological and biological discoveries, and by him it was revised and approved. This was nechamp to be introduced as a special chapter in an extensive work on inoculations and their relations to pathology, upon which the translator of this work had been engaged, almost exclusively, for some fourteen years.

But in the lengthy and abtoine daily interviews between Professor Bechamp and myself, which, as just shown, closely preceded becbamp former’s death, I suggested that instead of such summary it would be better to place before the English speaking peoples an exact translation into their language of some, at least, of the more important discoveries of Antooine Bechamp, especially as, in my opinion, it would not be easy to carry out among them that “conspiracy of silence” by means of which the discoveries of Bechamp had been buried in favour of distorted plagiarisms of his labours which had been productive of abortions, such as the Microbian or Germ Theory of disease, “the greatest scientific silliness bechxmp the age,” as it has been correctly styled by the Professor.

To this suggestion Professor Bechamp gave hearty assent, and told me to proceed exactly as I might think best for the promulgation of the great truths of biology, physiology, and of pathology, discovered by him, and authorized me freely to publish either summaries or translations into English, as I might deem most advisable.

In pursuance of this authorisation, the present volume is published, and is intended to introduce to peoples of the English tongue the last of the great discoveries of Professor Bechamp. The subject of the work is described by its title, but it is well to remind the medical and to inform the lay public, that the problem of the coagulation of the blood, so beautifully solved in this volume, has until now been an enigma and opprobrium to biologists, physiologists and pathologists.

The nechamp was in his 85th year at the time of the publication of the work here ebchamp. To the best of the translator’s knowledge it has not yet been plagiarised and is the only one of antline Professor’s more important discoveries which has not been so treated; but at the date of its publication the arch plagiarist was deadthough his evil work still lives.

One of the discoveries of Bechamp was the formation of urea by the oxidation of albuminoid matters. Annales Physiques et Chimiques, 3d. By a long series of exact experiments he demonstrated clearly the specificity of the albuminoid matters and he fractionized into numerous defined species albuminoid matters described theretofore as constituting a single definite compound.

He introduced new yet simple processes of experimentation of great value, which enabled him to publish a list of definite compounds and to isolate a series bcehamp soluble ferments to which he gave the name of zymases.

To obscure his discoveries, the name of diastases has often been given to these ferments, but that of zymas must be restored. He also showed the importance of these soluble products the zymases which are secreted by living organisms. He was thus led to the study vechamp fermentations.

Contrary to the then generally received chemical theory, he demonstrated that the alcoholic fermentation of beer-yeast was of the same order as the phenomena which characterize the regular performance of an act of animal life – digestion.


In he showed that moulds 1 transformed ajtoine sugar anotine invert sugar glucose in the same manner as does the inverting ferment secreted by beer yeast. The development of these moulds is aided by certain salts, impeded by others, but without moulds there is no transformation.

He showed that a sugar solution treated with precipitated calcic carbonate does not undergo inversion when care is taken to prevent the access to it of external germs, whose presence in the air was originally demonstrated by him.

If to such a solution the calcareous rock of Mendon befhamp Sens be added instead of pure calcic carbonate, moulds appear and the inversion takes place. Annales de physique et de Chimie, 3d S. R e p e rtoire de Chimie pure, Vol. Role de la craic dans l e s fermentations, Bull.

Antoine Béchamp – Wikipedia

These moulds, under the microscope, are seen to be formed by a collection of molecular granulations which Bechamp named microzymas. Not found in pure calcic carbonate, they are found in geological calcareous strata, and Bechamp established that they were living beings capable of inverting sugar, and some of them to make it ferment.

He also antoije that these granulations antine certain conditions evolved into bacteria. To enable these discoveries to be appropriated by another, the name microbe was later applied to them, and this term is better known than that of microzyma ; but the latter name must be restored, and the word microbe must be erased from the language of science into which it has introduced an overwhelming confusion.

It is also an etymological solecism. Bechamp denied spontaneous generation, while Pasteur continued to believe it. Later he, too, denied spontaneous generation, but he did not understand his own experiments, and they are of no value against the arguments of the sponteparist Pouchet, which could be answered only by the microzymian theory. So, too, Pasteur never understood vechamp the process of digestion nor that of fermentation, both of which processes were explained by Bechamp, and by a curious imbroglio was it intentional?

That Lister did, as he said, most probably derive his knowledge of antisepsis which Bechamp had discovered from Pasteur, is rendered probable by the following peculiar facts. In the earlier antiseptic operations of Lister the patients died in great numbers, so that it came to be a gruesome sort of medical joke to say that “the operation was successful, but the patient died.

The Greeks used the term macrobe to signify persons whose lives were of long duration. By analogy, microbe would be appropriate to persons whose lives are of short duration.

Bechamp proved that his microzymas were of immense longevity; hence to them the term macrobe might have been applicable, though that of microzyma, meaning small ferment, is not less so. Had he learned his technique from the discoverer of antisepsis, Bechamp, he would have atnoine his earlier patients; but deriving it at second hand from a savant?

Bechamp carried further the aphorism of Virchow – Omnis cellula e cellula – which the state of microscopical art and science at that time had not enabled the latter to achieve. Not the cellule but the microzyma must, thanks to Bechamp’s discoveries, be to-day regarded as the unit of life, for the cellules are themselves transient and are built up by the microzymas, which, physiologicallyare imperishable, as he has clearly demonstrated. Bechamp studied the diseases of the silk worm then ravaging the Southern provinces of France and soon discovered that there were two of them – one, the pebrine, which is due to a parasite; 2 the other, the flacherie, which is constitutional.

A month later, Pasteur in a report to the Academy of his first silkworm campaign, denied the parasitesaying of Bechamp’s observation, antkine is an error. The foregoing is but a very imperfect list of the labors and discoveries of Bechamp, of which the work now translated was the crowning glory. See “Louis Pasteur, Ses plagiats chimi e l-physiologiques et Medicaux” 2.

The present work describes the latest of all the admirable biological discoveries of the Professor Bechamp. It is proposed to follow it up with a translation antolne The Theory of the Microzymas and the Microbian System now in course of translation; and The Microzymas, the translation whereof is completed.

Other works will, it is hoped, follow, viz.: The Great Medical Problems, the first part of which is ready for the printer, Vinous Fermentation, translation complete; New Researches upon the Albuminoids, also complete, etc.

Pasteur Versus Béchamp: The History of Germ Theory

The study of these and of the other discoveries of Professor Bechamp will produce a new departure and a sound basis for the sciences of biology, of physiology and of pathology, today floating in chaotic uncertainty and confusion; and will, it is hoped, bring the medical profession back to the right path of investigation and of practice from which it has suffered itself to be led astray into the microbian theory of disease, which, as before mentioned, was declared by Bechamp to be the “greatest scientific bechmap of the age.

This book is the last work by a man who should today be regarded as one of the founders of modern medicine and biology and who deserves a place as one of the giants of the history of science. History, however, is written by the winners; the career of Antoine Bechamp, and the manner in which both he and his work have been written out of history, bear witness to the truth of this statement.


During his long and distinguished career as an academic and a researcher in 19th century France, Antoine Bechamp was widely known as both a teacher and an innovator. His work was widely documented in scientific circles, and few made as much use of this fact as the now famous Louis Pasteur, who set about plagiarising and distorting Bechamp’s ideas and discoveries, and in doing so gained for himself an undeserved and unwarranted place in the history of medical science.

There have been several excellent books written mainly in the early decades of this centurywhich explain in detail the plagiarisms and accompanying injustices which Pasteur and others inflicted on Bechamp.

This present text, The Third Element of the Blood, is the injured party’s own exposition of his position and his defence of it. It is a reworked translation of the last major work written by Professor Bechamp, and as such it describes the culmination of his life’s work, and shows clearly the importance that his work should have with regard to contemporary medicine and science.

This book contains, in great detail, the elements of the Microzymian theory of the organization of living organisms and organic materials. It has immediate and far reaching relevance to the fields of immunology, bacteriology, and cellular biology, and it shows that more than years ago, the germ, or microbian, theory of disease was demonstrated by Bechamp and those who worked with him to be without foundation.

The reader should be aware when reading The Third Element of the Blood that in formulating his microzymian theory of biological organisation, Bechamp in no way sought to establish it as the last word on the subjects of disease, its transmission, general physiology, or indeed the organisation of living matter itself. The Professor worked until a few weeks before his death; even if he were working now, he would no doubt still regard his work as unfinished. It is no accident but rather a vindication of the truth of Bechamp’s theories that many researchers over the course of the twentieth century have arrived at hypotheses and conclusions in various disciplines that concur with the microzymian model.

In the United States during the s and 30s, Royal Rife’s microscope revealed processes of life which would have made a great deal of sense to Bechamp. The medical establishment, however, was confounded by the implications of Rife’s discoveries, especially so when he began curing diseases, including cancer, with electromagnetic frequencies.

Rife and his discoveries were soon consigned to that special anonymity which is reserved for those who threaten the interests of a system which supports itself by maintaining a high level of sickness amongst humanity, and keeping health at a safe and lucrative distance. To maintain the profits of the drug companies and the authority of the medical establishment, no price is too great, and by the time Rife died, his work was all but forgotten.

Another process, this time a more recent one called CanCell, is experiencing the same fate at the same hands. Using techniques which are very much a refinement and development of Rife’s use of frequencies, Ed Sopcak has developed a process which has been tested and vindicated by the American FDA, who are now doing their best to bury it.

Again, the danger of this technology seems to be that it works, against Aids and cancer as well as other diseases, and it is simple and cheap. For years, Sopcak has given CanCell away without charge to anyone who asked for it. Today he can no longer do so because of a groundless court injunction. Many of the “alternative” ideas of medicine and biology that are currently under attack in various parts of the world would have no argument with the views of Bechamp.

And if science had granted to Bechamp the position in history and the influence upon scientific thought that it instead allowed to fall into the hands of the charlatan and opportunist Louis Pasteur, modern science would in turn have no argument with those ideas which today are being suppressed at every turn, whether by law, propaganda, discrimination, or, as in the latest development, armed raids, confiscation of equipment, and the jailing of researchers and health practicioners.

One such unfortunate is Basil Wainright, an American responsible for a process known as polyatomic apheresis, an advanced form of oxygen therapy which has proven itself to be effective enough against Aids and cancer for it to be worth banning.

At the time of writing, he has spent three years in prison without being charged with any offence, his medications for Parkinson’s disease have been tampered with, and clinics using polyatomic apheresis have been raided and closed. Similar stories could be told concerning many other products and practices, including Essiac and other herbal therapies, which should have been greeted with open arms, but have instead been marginalised by the establishment.

Among the many characteristics that these processes and theories have in common is the fact that the Germ Theory, that great and fallacious iconoclasm that Pasteur and his legions have cursed modern medical thinking with, plays no part in them. There is no hunt for the responsible bug, no expensive and complicated treatment for the sole cause of a disease.

The Germ Theory is convenient because it provides what every simplistic view of a problem seeks before all else:
