Hi Gary, I will answer your question below after citing two answers Doug gave.

Immune system only exists if you accept the idea that structures can be in two systems at once. I don't accept that idea.
Immune system only exists if you accept the idea that you can be immune to the responsibility for your own actions. I don't accept that idea.
Immune system only exists if you accept the idea that there is "physiological anatomy." I don't accept that idea either.

You are always detoxing, 24/7.
In effect, detox is the body's way of getting well.
Sometimes, you detox at an accelerated rate. We call this "being sick," and it implies to most people that something is wrong with the way the body is or has been functioning. For me, the symptoms associated with being sick simply mean "getting well faster than usual."

Gina's comment: I have assisted people through healing crises and also assisted in detoxification. I also, as an herbalist, have assisted people with both mild and massive infections. There is a huge difference between them!! One of my raw teachers with Doug's idea cited on 10/18/2012 (in the above email) thinks it's fine to get infected, because the pathogen will just clear out unwanted debris, and only the good tissue will remain!...that the pathogen cannot damage truly healthy tissue! So this kind of attitude shocks me, Gary.

Regarding Doug's statement:
"Immune system only exists if you accept the idea that you can be immune to the responsibility for your own actions. I don't accept that idea."
I want to point out that this world is generally a product of other people's actions, not our own, so the immune system is there to protect us against a whole world of danger, far beyond what we eat and are responsible for.

Isn't the immune system topic relevant here as to how Leah's infection was handled during the fast?
