Dr. Koch’s examine excited about the ability to revive the body’s oxidation
mechanism again to its unique power, thereby re-equipping the physique with its innate skill to revive and keep wellbeing and fitness, not just in cancers but in addition in a bunch of its ‘allied ailments. ’
This study ended in Dr. Koch’s improvement of numerous artificial antitoxins: Glyoxylide, Malonide and PBQ. those catalysts turned the stimulant essential to in achieving the oxidative separation of the ‘host cell/pathogen integration,’ whilst the pathogen used to be a virulent disease, a carcinogen, a bacterial toxin or an incompletely burned tissue metabolite. Dr. Koch effectively outlined the location of the activated amine team, the loose radical, the double bond and the Carbonyl crew in pathogenesis and in its correction.

Of historical value is the information that as early as 1919, Dr. Koch’s discoveries have been taking him in a course diametrically against the placement held by way of geared up drugs, which at the moment used to be making an investment seriously within the improvement of radium and surgical procedure because the such a lot promising remedies for cancer.

After failing in its try to achieve sole keep an eye on over his examine, geared up medication introduced a fifty-year, limitless attack aimed toward discrediting Dr. Koch’s recognition, scientific perform and learn, in addition to these of any health care provider who dared to validate his Theories or use his Reagents. prepared drugs constructed an intensive propaganda crusade, disseminated fake details on Reagent chemistry and publicly pushed aside the Koch Theories, which emphasised the connection among environmental pollutants, nutritional deficiencies and a depleted oxidation mechanism, as fundamental initiators of the ailment process.

Because Dr. Koch persevered such large persecution in regard to his technology, he made up our minds that the medical/pharmacological could eternally stay unwilling to independently visual display unit, record or validate any of his ongoing laboratory study or scientific case histories; for that reason given that his demise, December nine, 1967, there were no real Koch Reagents reproduced. It was once as a result of the scurrilous intentions held by way of the medical/pharmacological that Dr. Koch deliberately withheld particular wisdom required within the creation of workable Koch Reagents. (Therefore, any claims on the contrary can be considered as suspect. )
