The medical profession has always jealously guarded itself against the intrusion of maverick scientists and doctors. Because of the layers of protection the medical profession has instituted, medical research, particularly in the United States, is slow. Major breakthroughs are slow to be recognized and are often ostracized. From the French abortion pill to AIDS research, this country lags many years behind in implementing or even testing new discoveries.

Microbiologist Gaston Naessens is a perfect example of the Neanderthal process of professional medicine today. His discovery, hailed by many physicians throughout the world, has been criticized, not for what it is, but because he does not have the credentials or membership in the right medical societies.

The 69-year-old Naessens is a French microbiologist who has created what he calls the immune-system therapy 714X. When Naessens' unorthodox treatment methods began yielding dramatic successes in France, his laboratory was closed by French medical authorities, his equipment was confiscated and he was heavily fined for practicing medicine without a license. Naessens moved to Canada with the help of the prestigious MacDonald Foundation and set up a small laboratory outside Montreal. After years of research, Naessens was brought to trial by the Canadian medical authorities, accused of contributing to the death of a woman who did not recover after using his treatment. It was a long, arduous trial. Testimony was offered by patients and physicians using his treatment. Naessens was acquitted. Dr. Guylaine Lanctot of Montreal states, Naessens has made "the most exciting discovery of this century. It is the essence of life. It is the link between one's physical body and energetic body, between the body and the soul. We should start teaching children about the theory immediately, since it is the future of biology and medicine, a medicine which, through it, becomes more exciting, humane, comprehensible, accessible and financially affordable."


After the trial, a handful of doctors in the United States began to use Naessens' controversial treatment. Dr. Roscoe van Zandt of Arlington, Texas, stated, "In forty years of research, Gaston Naessens has uncovered micro biological truths, some of them censored by silence or suppressed outright for over 150 years. His findings open new horizons in biology and medicine and it is time for professionals in these fields to open the horizons of their minds to what he has discovered."

Naessens studied physics, chemistry and biology at the university, but his studies were interrupted by World War II and the Nazi invasion of his country. He earned an unofficial diploma from the Union Scientifique Francaise in Lilles, where most of his colleagues fled to escape the Nazi invasion. He never received a formal degree.

How smart is the man? At 5-years-old he built a small, functional automobile-type vehicle. Then he made a homemade motorcycle. At the age of 12 he constructed a plane that could fly. Naessens continued his studies and also pursued the study of hematology (study of blood). In his research, he noticed that something was moving in the blood, but the particle was too small to be identified by the optical methods applied in those days. So Naessens enlisted the help of optical specialists in Germany to develope a better and stronger microscope.

He called the new microscope the somatoscope. The microscope, in itself, was a major medical achievement. It could magnify the living blood 30,000 times larger than the average telescope. Because of its resolution, blood does not requirie staining before being put under the microscope. This allowed Naessens to look at "living blood". Naessens could now study the microorganisms in the blood. Naessens observed a number of different forms of microorganisms but came to the conclusion that they were all stages of the development of one sub cellular entity, he called it somatid.

What Naessens discovered was that somatids were everywhere, in the sap of plants, in the blood of animals, and even in lifeless organic matter like ashes. When he cultured the somatid life cycle, he discovered that somatids are resistant to acids and bases as well as heat and that they cannot be cut with a diamond. Cell division cannot take place without the somatid. Somatid, according to Naessens' theory, releases the growth hormone trephone, which enables cells to divide and multiply. Naessens believes that the electrically charged somatid is the original spark of life, the point in which energy condenses into matter.


So how important is all this? The cycle of the somatid maps how degenerative diseases occur, diseases such as cancer, AIDS, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis and any viral or degenerative disease such as chronic fatigue. Diseases that have stumped medical research for generations.

In these disease, the immune system malfunctions. It weakens and becomes unable to resist opportunistic disease, or it doubles its vigilance, attacking the body itself. Naessens is able to provide scientific documentation and evidence that disease represents imbalance in the ecology of the whole organism.

In a healthy body, the somatid has three cycles that produce the right amount of the growth hormone trephone to keep cells reproducing at the approximate rate. When the body is stressed or weak, the somatid shifts into a longer cycle that features 13 additional stages, including forms that resemble bacteria, viruses and yeast cells. Today scientist studying cancer have suggested that it may be caused by bacterial and later a viral disease from somewhere outside the body. Naessens' theory, however, is that these microbial forms are simply phases of the somatid in its extended cycle, an amplified cycle that produces excessive quantities of growth hormone, creating the abnormally rapid cell growth which is known as cancer.

Though Naessens' research has yielded tremendous results, approximately 75 percent of the patients treated by his theory have been cured, he was not the first scientist to suggest the causes of disease from the blood. In the early 1800s Antoine Bechamp established a similar theory and it was rejected by the scientific community in favor of Louie Pasteur's theory that the cause of the diseases where from outside organisms entering into the body. Though Pasteur's theories in reference to many diseases proved correct and immunities where discovered, it locked-in the scientific community for more than a century in rejecting internal body devices that could trigger diseases.

In Naessens' theory, the micro cycle of the somatid is held at three stages by blood inhibitors, which consists of certain digestive enzymes, hormones and minerals. Poor diet and stress apparently reduced the number of blood inhibitors, allowing the somatid to expand to a 13-phase cycle. The presence of extra somatid forms signify the beginning of degenerative disease before it has even manifested itself in the body. The importance of this discovery, is that the medical profession could diagnosis a potential disease in the body some 18-months before it strikes. A precaution that can give time for cure.

The difference, Naessens finds, between healthy cells and cancer cells is their rate of growth, linked to the somatid cycle. The somatid is capable of releasing more growth hormones into the body and stimulating the rapid multiplication of cells which lead to cancer. The cancer cells extract more nitrogen from the body's cells and also begins to paralyze the immune system, reducing the body's ability to combat the disease.

Naessens advocates a systemic treatment for the disease which enables the body to again perform its normal function of removing cancer cells. This action takes place every day in healthy bodies.


According to proponents of Naessens' 714X, Naessens treatment system works. The 714X is an aqueous solution consisting of camphor, mineral salts, and nitrogen salts, which is injected into the patient once a day for a 21-day cycle. The treatment is then repeated until the progress of the disease is reversed and finally stopped, the method is an intralymphatic injection.. The medical profession claims that such an injection is physiologically impossible, due to the structure of the lympathic system, yet thousands of people have used the treatment with successful and encouraging results. The shots are inexpensive and can be done at home by the patient.

The salts help to cleanse and clear the lymph of toxins accumulated during the disease, thereby reviving the body's defenses, which go back to work to fight the cancer. The nitrogen actually feeds the cancer cells so they do not drain the body's nitrogen. The camphor carries the nitrogen to the cells and impedes the formation of the co-cancerogenic factor, again stimulating the body's own ability to fight the disease.

A healthy diet is also a required follow-through, no sugar, low fat, no dairy, no pork or beef. The body's immune system revives and is able then to attack and eradicate the cancer cells.

Dr. Dietmar Schildwaechter, a former faculty member of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and who now directs a cancer rehabilitation center in Germany, stumbled across Naessens' theory after seeing one of his own patients make marked improvement through the Naessens treatment. "Gaston Naessens' discoveries represent a brand new dimension in medicine. His recognition of the somatids as the basic form of life and his furnishing a microscopic means to monitor their cycle are nothing short of revolutionary. His methods, offering an instant and highly refined way of assessing every human being's state of health and their responses to therapy, is second to none." Schildwaechter is now the chief investigator of the Institutional Review Board that is documenting the successes of 714X with a goal of obtaining FDA approval for its use in the United States as an experimental treatment. The treatment is available by doctor's prescription, so long as the patient is willing to sign an informed consent for the administration of an unapproved drug.


The difficulty of obtaining approval is that it requires the stamp of approval of the American Medical Association, the National Cancer Institute and the FDA. The history of these distinguished groups is that of total reluctance to investigate therapies that have not merged from their own laboratories. There are 63 treatments on the list of "unproved methods" published by the American Cancer Society, over 40 percent have never been investigated by the medical establishment. Naessens' therapy is 63 on the list.

Though medical professionals argue that sufficient evidence exists that the therapy should be thoroughly evaluated, the scientific and medical profession are doing little to investigate Naessens' 714X. One major advantage of the treatment is that it does not take the terrible toll on the body as does chemotherapy , surgery and radiation treatment.

"We have had continuing, and predictable, feedback from an increasing number of physicians and patients attesting to the success of Naessens' 714X in enhancing the effectiveness of other immunotherapies used to treat cancer, other degenerative diseases, and afflictions of viral origin," states Dr. Jacob Zwilling. "The implications of Naessens' microscope, and fundamental biological research, as well as his therapy for previously poorly treatable medical conditions, are awesome," states Dr. Raymond Keith Brown, author of AIDS, Cancer, and the Medical Establishment.

There are documented cases of the use of 714X. Jacques Viens was 39 years old when he had seven-eighths of his stomach removed, according to writer Stephanie Hiller. The cancer had already spread to the lymph. Since there seemed to be no hope of recovery, his doctor offered him 714X. Four months after taking 714X he was healthy enough to go hunting and soon resumed his job. Marcel Caron had intestinal cancer but refused to have his intestine removed. His wife's breast cancer had been successfully treated with 714X and so he tried it as well. Sixty-five days after he started treatment, no cancer was found in Caron's body. Eight years later he is still healthy. Anne Vignal, wife of the former French Counsel General in Quebec, sought out medical opinions and was told she could not conceive children. She was also told that her infertility was due to a lethal form of leukemia and she had only three to five years to live. She took 714X. She is now cancer free and the mother of a healthy son.
