Good thoughts. I do believe Bechamp & Enderlein's viepoint is more widely applicable than Pasteur's, but that is not to say that Pasteur is incorrect, just perhaps over-applied. Fact is, if you're clean and you kiss a girl who has an open sore on her lip, you will obtain whatever virus was in there. Or if one is sufficiently exposed to chicken pox and never had it before, the will acquire it. Etc. How the system handles it after that depends on the state of the system.
I acquired it from her allright. Arginine is a major trigger of it, and I can ingest tons of arginine with no breakouts. That's not a 100% test probably, but combined with no signs in 17 years probably means something.
