Louis Pasteur 1822 – 1895 was a French chemist and microbiologist best known for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of disease.
“The microbe is nothing. The terrain is everything.” Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) is purported to have made this statement on his deathbed. The origin of the quote is attributed to Claude Bernard (1813-1878), a physiologist and contemporary of Pasteur. By quoting Bernard, Pasteur was recanting his germ theory, a theory that assigned the cause of disease to microbes invading and reeking havoc on the body, with specific germs causing specific diseases (Stockton, S. (2000). The terrain is everything: Contextual factors that influence our health. Clearwater, Fl. Power of One Publishing).

Sarah Bernhardt insisted on homeopathic treatment for herself and for her cast. She carried her own homeopathic remedy kit, as described by James William Ward in his lecture on homeopathy in 1937, and it is of great interest that her remedy kit contained such high potency remedies, 1m and CM, which required highly specialised prescribing.
Sarah Bernhardt was also a patient of Emmanuel de Marney Baruch (?-?), a homeopathic Physician to the famous, who she consulted via cable from Paris (Neil Gould, Victor Herbert: A Theatrical Life, (Fordham Univ Press, 1 Aug 2009). Page 509).
