Albert Schweitzer 1875 – 1965

April 22, 2010

Albert Schweitzer 1875 – 1965 was an Alsatian German-French theologian, organist, philosopher, and physician, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953,

Scweitzer was a close friend of homeopath Leon Vannier, and **Professor Paulo de Lacerda **recounts (see comments below)

‘I met in Paris the late Dr. Lea de Mattos and in accordance to her report she told me that Leon Vannier and Albert Schweitzer had been mutual friends for long time in Paris since his studies on organ music, and they exchanged correspondences, and that Albert Scwietzer ordered homeopathic remedies several times from Leon Vannier to supply his small jungle hospital in Africa with homeopathic medicines from the Lab. Homeopathique de France founded by late Leon Vannier, for nosodes to treat malaria and other tropical diseases’.

Schweitzer believed in the internal healing power of the human body, and he said that ”It’s supposed to be a professional secret, but I’ll tell you anyway. The witchdoctor succeeds for the same reason all the rest of us succeed. Each patient carries his own doctor inside him. They come to us not knowing the truth. We are at our best when we give the doctor who resides within each patient a chance to go to work“,

Schweitzer also said ”The greatest discovery of any generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering the attitudes of their minds”, and ”It is more important for the doctor to know the patient who has the disease than to know the disease that has the patient…’

Schweitzer sought out Gerson Treatment to cure his own diabetes, and to cure his wife’s tuberculosis after conventional allopathic methods failed to cure her, and Schweitzer used garlic to treat tuberculosis in Gabon,

Schweitzer was a vegetarian and very interested in diet, growing soya beans in his hospital garden in Gabon,

The Albert Schweitzer Society has awarded many honors to homeopaths and homeopathic supporters, including Norman Cousins, Hartmut Herbert Kollikowski, and Swami Narayani,

Albert Schweitzer was born in Kaysersberg in the province of Alsace-Lorraine, from 1871 to 1918 in the German Empire.

Schweitzer challenged both the secular view of Jesus as depicted by historical-critical methodology current at his time in certain academic circles, as well as the traditional Christian view, depicting a Jesus Christ who expected and predicted the imminent end of the world.

He received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize in 1953 for his philosophy of “Reverence for Life”, expressed in many ways, but most famously in founding and sustaining the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Lambarene, now in Gabon, west central Africa (then French Equatorial Africa).

As a music scholar and organist, he studied the music of German composer Johann Sebastian Bach and influenced the Organ reform movement (Orgelbewegung). Schweitzer’s passionate quest was to discover a universal ethical philosophy, anchored in a universal reality, and make it directly available to all of humanity.

Of interest:

David Schweitzer, grandson of Albert Schweitzer.

In 1996 Dr . David Schweitzer , grandson of Albert Schweitzer succeeded in photographing images of thoughts that had been impregnated in water: ” Demonstrating that water was capable of acting as a liquid memory system that could store information”.

Subsequently, Schweitzer developed a fluorescent microscope that enabled him to see how minute particles within the water were changed in response to thoughts and other influences.

David Schweitzer, grandson of Albert Schweitzer, is the first scientist to photograph the effects of thoughts, captured in water. This shows that water can act as a liquid memory system capable of storing information.

David Schweitzer first stepped into this trail by becoming an authority on blood analysis. He learned that blood cells express themselves in sacred geometry and their harmonious shapes and colors. Since blood cells hang out in water, he looked farther into that substance for answers about our thinking processes.

After ten years of observing blood, in 1996 he made the discovery which opened the door to photographing the stored frequencies in homeopathics and natural remedies and to researching the impact of positive or negative thoughts on bodily fluids.

“Having studied the relationship between the brain, cells and emotions,” he told Joseph Duggan in Vancouver, “I came to realize that certain trace elements were needed to send information from one area of the brain to another.” Minerals alone could not convey information.

To find out if the carrier was water itself, Dr. Schweitzer experimented…  Dr. Schweitzer says, aspects of the homeopathic research couldn’t be measured by the investigators’ instruments.

The witch hunt in France against Jacques Benveniste didn’t stop him from radical thinking. He remembered Albert Einstein’s idea that particulate “light bodies” act in ways we don’t yet understand.

Waking up one morning with insight on how to make these bodies visible, Schweitzer began working on a fluorescent microscope at a certain light intensity. He wanted to see somatids change in response to thought and other influences.

Just before the water on the microscope slides evaporated, he saw certain formations develop “dependent on the thoughts or energy atmosphere it had been impregnated with. I observed that this cluster could be modified at will.”

Further work showed that microscopic light bodies in the water intensify in the presence of positive thoughts. They shine brightly if thoughts are backed up by emotion, and it makes a big difference whether the emotions are negative or positive.

Intrigued by the tiny light-bodies, he tested holy waters of religious faiths, from Italy, Russia, Yugoslavia and North America and saw somatids floating even after years of being bottled on shelves.

“This means there is an ideal balance when somatids never touch each other, which gives them the greatest capacity to store information.”

But when he studied homeopathic remedies, careful storage of energy medicine is crucial…

Further, Dr. Schweitzer has a warning about purified water we buy in clear plastic bottles that have been exposed to fluorescent lighting. When we drink only this water, our lips dry out and become chapped and cracked. “Normally, drinking water does not dry out the mouth, but fluorescent lighting changes the structure of water such that it dries out the mucous membranes.”

Julius V Schweitzer ?1845 was a German orthodox physician who converted to homeopathy to become a Physician at the Homeopathic Hospital in Kremsier,

Schweitzer and Folkard were homeopathic chemists at 86 King’s Road, Brighton in 1859, later moving to 35a King’s Road, St. Pancras, London, and 10 Adam Street, Adelphi, London,
