Creating Waves of Awareness

Homeopathy and Microorganisms Producing Exotoxines


By Dr. Guillermo Zamora, MD , Homeopath

It is clear that at Dr. Hahnemann´s times, was unknown the existence of microbial life, however, it seems to be that Dr. Hahemann in some way alluded to the possibility that something else could cause illness. We can see this in the following paragraphs of the Organon:

Paragraph 31, Organon, 6th ed:

The inimical forces, partly psychical, partly physical, to which our terrestrial existence is exposed, which are termed morbific noxious agents, do not possess the power of morbidly deranging the health of man unconditionally1; but we are made ill by them only when our organism is sufficiently disposed and susceptible to attack of the morbific cause that may be present, and to be altered in its health, deranged and made to undergo abnormal sensations and functions – hence they do not produce disease in every one nor at all times.”

In the next paragraph, Dr Hahnemann refers to the infectious miasmas:

§ 78 Sixth Edition

“The true natural chronic diseases are those that arise from a chronic miasm, which when left to themselves, and unchecked by the employment of those remedies that are specific for them, always go on increasing and growing worse, notwithstanding the best mental and corporeal regimen, and torment the patient to the end of his life with ever aggravated sufferings. These, excepting those produced by medical malpractice (§ 74), are the most numerous and greatest scourges of the human race; for the most robust constitution, the best regulated mode of living and the most vigorous energy of the vital force are insufficient for their eradication.1”

Please read the footnote.

“1 During the flourishing years of youth and with the commencement of regular menstruation joined to a mode of life beneficial to soul, heart and body, they remain unrecognized for years. Those afflicted appeal in perfect health to their relatives and acquaintances and the disease that was received by infection or inheritance seems to have wholly disappeared. But in later years, after adverse events and conditions of life, they are sure to appear anew and develop the more rapidly and assume a more serious character in proportion as the vital principle has become disturbed by debilitating passions, worry and care, but especially when disordered by inappropriate medicinal treatment”.

Often come to mind the famous quotes of the famous Dr. Kent:

"I wonder if scientists reflect when they make statements about bacteria. Naturally they would say that the more bacteria the more danger, but this is not so."

"Save the life of the patient first and don't worry about the bacteria. They are useless things."

"The Bacterium is an innocent feller, and if he carries disease he carries the Simple Substance which causes disease, just as an elephant would."

In this last sentence, I wonder if the bacteria would transport only the simple substance or they are able to carry more than that, for example: Exotoxins.

*Exoenzyme (Taken from wikipedia):

“An exoenzyme, or extracellular enzyme, is an enzyme that is secreted by a cellL and that works outside of that cellL. It is usually used for breaking up large molecules that would not be able to enter the cell otherwise.”

*Exotoxine: (Taken from wikipedia):

“An exotoxin is a toxin excreted by a microorganism , including bacteria, fungi, algae, and protozoa. An exotoxin can cause damage to the host by destroying cells or disrupting normal cellular metabolism. They are highly potent and can cause major damage to the host. Exotoxins may be secreted, or, similar to endotoxins, may be released during lysis of the cell.

Most exotoxins can be destroyed by heating. They may exert their effect locally or produce systemic effects. Well known exotoxins include the botulinum toxin produced by Clostridium botulinum and the Corynebacterium diphtheriae exotoxin which is produced during life threatening symptoms of diphtheria.

Exotoxins are susceptible to antibodies produced by the immune system, but many exotoxins are so toxic that they may be fatal to the host before the immune system has a chance to mount defenses against it.”

It is according to the last paragraph where I would focus more, overall, to mention some of the most dangerous bacteria or bacterial gender in medicine.

Taken from: “ Microbiología Médica de Volk, 3rd edition.”

  • Staphylococcus Aureus:

Gram + bacteria, which produces a light golden pigment, called Polysaccharide A. The ability of these to cause disease depends on its resistance to be phagocytosed and its production of extracellular toxins and enzymes, for example:

Coagulase: This is an extracellular enzyme coagulase-reacting normally present in plasma (perhaps prothrombin) and plasma coagulation by converting fibrinogen into fibrin. The only pathogenic effect has been suggested for this enzyme is covering with fibrin microorganisms to inhibit phagocytosis.

Staphylococcal hemolysins: There are four: Alpha, beta, gamma and delta: It has been shown that alpha toxin, damages the smooth muscle cells and also destroys the skin (it dermonecrotic). It is also toxic to macrophages, platelets, and causes degranulation of PMNs.

Beta toxin is an enzyme that reacts with phosphorylcholine sphingomyelin to separate and further cooling causes cell rupture.

Gamma toxin, produces red blood cell destruction.

The toxin delta: injured a large number of blood cells and the injury apparently is a consequence of the reaction of hydrophobic amino acids in the phospholipids of the cell membrane.

Leukocidin: This toxin is composed of two separable components that act synergistically to cause damage to polymorphonuclear cells and macrophages.

Exfoliatina: This exotoxin, encoded by a plasmid, cause “severe exfoliative dermatitis” (Please see the case at the end); or also called “scalded skin syndrome of Staphylococcal origin”. It is characterized by the formation of wrinkles and exfoliation of the epidermis, resulting in significant loss of fluid through the skin bare. The epidermal sloughing is caused by an exotoxin diffusible, and thus infecting staphylococos may be present or absent in the affected skin area.

Staphylococcal enterotoxins: This exotoxin, causes food poisoning characterized by severe diarrhea and committees. Have been described 6 antigenically distinct enterotoxins A, B, C1, C2, D and E. These toxins are not destroyed and can be termoestabiles even if the food is heated sufficiently to destroy viable staphylococci.

Pyrogenic toxins: These toxins intensify the susceptibility to toxic shock (such as that occurs in women using tampons during menstruation) and cause a similar rash of scarlet fever.

Penicillinase: Enzyme capable of destroying penicillin.

  • Excherinchia Coli:

E. Coli: This produces one or two different toxins, the so-called thermolabile LT and is destroyed by heating at 85 degrees C for 30 minutes, and the thermostable, designated with the letters ST and is not destroyed by heating at 100 degrees C for 30 minutes.

E. Coli causes gastrointestinal infections in a severe way and sometimes fatal in infants. In adults, the infection is known by many names, for example, "Traveler's diarrhea." It can cause cystitis, pyelonephritis, abscesses, even sepsis.

So, as these two microorganisms producing lethal exotoxines, there are some more such as the following:

  • Shigella
  • The Clostridium Genre, for exemple, Clostridium Perfringens , C. Boulinum
  • The Bacillus Genre : Bacillus Cereus (Rare and are required high concentrations of microrganisms). Bacillus Anthracis.
  • Pseudomona Aeruginosa.

It seems that the quantity in number of bacteria is also important because for this it will depend the amount of toxins circulating in the body

Furthermore, and as I wrote in my article “How could coexist convencional medicine and homeopathy?”:

“III.-Poisons (i.e. bites of venenous animals, intoxications by known chemical substances), : These cases should not be viewed as dynamic diseases, therefore must be treated with the antidote from conventional medicine and / or supportive measures such as dialysis, antibodies filtration and some immunoglobulin used in immunology for blocking of certain toxins”

Now, I would add “And diseases produced by microorganisms producing lethal exotoxines should not be taken as dynamic diseases; therefore antibiotics should be used on circumstances where lethal toxins are endangering the patient´s life”

Of course, I would like to know about cured cases regarding this matter. Kindly, I invite you to share them with me.

This is a staphylococcus skin case of mine which was treated homeopathically for 5 days. A Lycopodium patient, male, 6 years old (Lycopodium the first two days was improving burning pain, itching, drying vesicles).

4 days of evolution (behind left knee)


Behind right knee

After 5 days the patient still was developing new vesicle eruptions and the vesicles that had dried, they were wet again. Furthermore, the patient started to get sloughing and fall of large areas of skin (exfoliation or desquamation) on more than 10% of body surface (As if he were burned). I made several changes: Belladonna (on the third day) and Arsenicum (5th day) ... No results. Neither worsening nor improvement.

In this article, I could talk about my succeful cases, however, it could be that I had failed (homeopathy never fails), or it could be that there is the need to establish new criteria in order to increase the patient´s safety. I must say that after 5 days, I took the patient to the hospital, and I administered antibiotics against Staphylococcus aureus. Locally, I washed his skin lesions (Three times a day) with soap and water and later I used cantharis MT (5 drops into a glass water). The patient improved almost 100% in two days, therefore he was taken out of hospital. Doctors were surprised for the quick response and nobody believed that during six years the child had never taken antibiotics, but only homeopathy. Could this be a case of “optimization of allopathic medicines through homeopathy”?

Please, see my discussion:

The same case with 7 days of evolution (2 days later of being hospitalized)

The world is changing. ANIMAL MRSA. Highly contagious. People carry this organism in the nostrils, throat and mouth. Carriers can infect others. Spreading from pig farms, to meat, to humans.

Intensive livestock farming is fuelling an antibiotic resistance crisis. This Guardian investigation uncovers the extent to which antimicrobial resistant diseases like LA MRSA CC398 are infecting our food and threatening our health.

"Almost every single hair was infected", says a Danish pig farmer, infected with a new form of the antibiotic resistant pig superbug LA-MRSA. Filming undercover, this report shows how an insatiable desire for cheap meat is giving rise to a new form of factory farming in which antibiotics are over-prescribed on an "astronomical scale", fuelling an epidemic of antibiotic resistant diseases. As more us become infected via our food, the dangers to our health could be severe. "If this goes on we will see the end of modern medicine", explains the UK Health Minister.

Dear Alexander:

Thank you for your comments

Comment by Alexander Begg on July 29, 2010 at 11:32am
With regard to the question about "allopathy and homeopathy co-existing" I have no doubt they can co-exist. I say that from the stand point that being a student Homeopathy the young Allopathic Doctors I meet have a fascination in Homeopathy.

The progression of health care will not simply drop Allopathic medicine for Homeopathy. The future is a neccesary entwinement and process of renewal for both systems. Both systems will need to work together sensitively, acknowledging each other and respecting one another.
It is through this respect that something finer and greater can be accomplished for the totality healing on a global scale.

Dear Elena:

You are right!... Both, Bechamp´s work and the good work presented by Katja apply, BUT also applies the fact that the lethality of the most potent bacterial exotoxins is compared to the lethality of strychnine, snake venom, as Kenneth well mentions. Therefore, we can conclude that every homeopath should assess the risk-time factor in every case.

I really appreciate all your contributions to this subject...Please, keep on contact.

Best wishes
Guillermo ..

Dear Guillermo,

Thank you very much for the references! I'm sorry I am not an active participant at the HWC, I only have free moments time and again between my studies and family commitments, so I do not have enough time to respond in detail, which is a pity, but appreciate your help in referencing towards a lot of interesting information.

One thought that I thought you mind find interesting to ponder is that toxicity of any toxin is not the same for different people. Theoritcally it's obvious for a homeopath - everyone has different susceptibility, but in clinical settings this can have major implications for gaining time to find a goor remedy for a person rather than hurrying "to do something quick" because "the toxins are poisoning the body through certain mechanisms", if you see what I mean. It might become easier to "wait and watch", and I think the example above when referral to another homeopath was helpful solely to let the remedy do it's work - and the patient time to respond to it properly, - is very pertinent. That was basically my point, as I suppose that there are actual physical mechanisms that occur when the person's dynamic susceptibility is being challenged. However, I would say that knowing these mechanisms is not likely to help in finding the right remedy, what would you think?

Thank you again, with very best wishes!

Kindly Have a look on Katja´s blog: "Germs and the law of biphasic diseases" (see the comments and the pfd article, there)

Hi Elena:

I put an eye to the work you mention ... Very interesting!

Perhaps you want to see a more actual work. I refer to Keneth´s work (2008). In this work, you will read about the toxicogenesis from a contemporary angle. I meant, you will see, the direct role of some microorganisms in the production of toxines. Of course, i am not refering to all exotoxines, but to lethal exotoxines.

Bacterial Protein Toxins


There are lots of trials regarding the subject, but you could read this one:

Dear Elena, members:

Thank you for your comments. No, i have not read Bechamp´s works.

Kindly, I invite you to see my comment (and all the subject) here:

Comment by Elena Zagrebelnaya on July 16, 2010 at 7:05pm
One more aspect I would suggest to keep in mind when approaching these cases - not remedy-wise, but "philosophically" - have you read the works of Antoine Bechamp? This would surely make you less "scared" (and impatient) of the condition - and more capable of dealing with it in terms of finding the right remedy. Patience! Patience! As Katja said...
Comment by Dr Muhammed Rafeeque on July 9, 2010 at 12:04am
Thanks for the clarification.
Comment by Dr Guillermo Zamora on July 7, 2010 at 11:45am
Yes...He got lesions on eyelids, forehead, cheeks, chest, one in back, one more on penis, other small groups in the thighs.

In SSSS the skin slips off with gentle pressure leaving wet red areas (Nikolsky sign). The lesions in these pics are the most extensive.

Thanks for the links
