For those interested in a deeper understanding of the Microzyma, I have recently had sent to me the text of Bechamp’s book and I have turned it into a PDF for teaching purposes.
The book can also be purchased here in Paperback and Kindle formats:
Excerpt from the book:
“Under the form of conclusions is here given a succinct summary of the totality of the fundamental facts, the discovery whereof has led to that of the true anatomical and chemical constitution of the blood and to the explanation of its spontaneous alterations.
(1) Ordinary air, near the earth, contains living microscopical objects called germs, and these germs are essentially microzymas.
(2) Proximate principles, and any mixture of such principles are unalterable in the presence of water, of a limited volume of air at ordinary temperature when a little creosote has been first
added; and such proximate principles under such conditions do not permit any organized being to appear.
(3) Natural organic matters, vegetable or animal, tissues and humors, under like experimental conditions, always change of themselves, by a phenomenon of fermentation, and at the same time the microzymas, give birth to vibrioniens by evolution.
(4) The fibrin of the blood is not a proximate principle; it is a false membrane containing microzymas, whereof the intermicrozymian gangue is a specialized albuminoid substance.
(5) It is owing to its microzymas that fibrin decomposes oxygenated water, that it liquifies starch of amidon and
that it can be dissolved, undergoing chemical change, in very dilute
hydrochloric acid.
(6) The microzymas of fibrin in liquified starch undergo vibrionian evolution notwithstanding the presence of creosote.
(7) Fibrin liquifies spontaneously in carbolized water without the microzymas undergoing vibrionian evolution.
( The fibrinous microzymas are special; they can produce lactic and butyric fermentation in liquified starch.
(9) Natural albuminoid matters are mixtures, reducible by direct analysis into exactly defined proximate principles.
(10) The albuminoid matters reduced to proximate principles are very complex molecules composed of less complex ones,
amides and their derivatives of the fatty and aromatic series. There exist of such less complex molecules, constituting an albuminoid molecule, quaternaries like urea, quinaries like taurine, which is
sulphuretted; like hematosine, which is ferruginous; casein, in addition to the sulphuretted molecule, contains one which is phosphuretted; it has then six elements.
(11) There are several fibrins constituted as are those of the blood.
(12) There are a great number of different specific albumens which coagulation does not differentiate.
(13) The zymas are special albuminoid matters, likewise definable as proximate principles; they are always a functional product of the microzymas.
(14) The yellow liquid of the blood, besides its albumen, contains a haemozymas.
(15) The haemoglobin of the red corpuscle, reduced to a definite proximate principle, decomposes oxygenated water by its noncomplex feruginous molecule, haematosine, and becomes colorless.
(16) The red corpuscle of the blood is a true cellule, having a cell-wall and its proper content. This content is constituted especially of haemoglobin and micro-zymian-moleculargranulations, the microzymas whereof decompose oxygenated water as do those of the fibrin.
(17) The blood contains a third anatomical element, the haematic-microzymianmolecular- granularions.
It is the albumenoid atmosphere of these granulations which form, by allotropic transformation, the intermicrozymian gangue of the false membrane called fibrin.
(18) The flowing tissue is a content, whereof the vessels, arteries, veins and their appendages form the container.
(19) The three orders of anatomical elements of the flowing tissue only find their conditions of existence complete in their containers during life.
(20) After issuing from the vessels these conditions of existence being no longer fulfilled, the alteration of the flowing tissue commences.
(21) The microzymas of the different parts of the circulatory system possess alike the property of decomposing oxygenated water without being absolutely characteristic of them, for the microzymas of almonds and of other parts of plants and of beer yeast also possess this property. But there are animal tissues whose
microzymas do not disengagethe oxygen of oxygenated water.
(22) The microzymas, anatomical elements, are living beings of a special order without analogue.
(23) The spontaneous changes of natural animal matters, whether the microzymas have or have not undergone vibrionian evolution, thanks to free access of air, lead always under certain conditions
to the complete destruction by oxydation of the product of those changes; that is to say, reduce them to the mineral condition, carbonic acid, water, nitrogen. But the microzymas under whose
influence the oxydation is effected are not attacked; in such wise that all which is purely proximate principle in a tissue, in a cellule and in the bacterium, having undergone total destruction, the
microzymas remain, and bear testimony to the existence of the vanished organization.
(24) The geological microzymas of certain calcareous rocks and of chalk, those of the dust of the streets and of the air also bear testimony to the microzymas which functioned as anatomical elements in the tissues of organisms of geological epochs even as they function in those of the present time.
(25) That which in the air have been called germs are essentially the microzymas of the entire destruction of a living organism.
(26) Normal air contains neither pre-existing germs nor the things which have been improperly termed microbes, supposed to ascend from age to age to parents resembling them.
(27) The air contains normally no pathogenic microzymas. The
carbon bacteridium of Davaine is the product of the evolution of diseased microzymas, either of haematicmicrozymian- molecular-granulations, or those of the blood globules.
(28) There is no living matter which is not morphologically defined; that which has been called protoplasm in the cellule always contains microzymas as anatomical elements. “
