Pasteur’s theory of infection is a cornerstone of Western medicine. Here we propose a new approach that the proliferation of microorganisms in infectious diseases is encouraged by chronic stress-induced imbalances in the host that suppress both the immune and the digestive systems.  Nature’s method of controlling microbial growth uses quorum sensing inhibition, which disrupts the esssential molecular signaling between microorganisms. Signal molecules produced by bacteria allow the pathogens to coordinate their behavior, and after reaching a threshold level, stimulates them to activate their virulence genes.  However, the resulting infectious disease can be interrupted and even prevented by suitable, mainly hydrophobic quorum sensing inhibitor molecules present in a variety of common foods and spices. When a host’s metabolic reservoir is enriched with these plant-derived inhibitors, infectious disease cannot develop -- even if pathogeni...
