An Holistic approach to Hendra

July 30th 2011


To understand the nature of new emerging viruses such as Hendra we need to expand our thinking and see the Earth as a living organism and, like any ecosystem the Earth needs to find a balance within its species, human, animal and micro organisms alike............to find a symbiosis.
Nothing in Nature is separate and while viruses, bacteria and all microorganisms can be inconvenient at best and deadly at worst they have their place in the bigger scheme of things. Holistic philosophies practice a whole “approach” to disease and do not see viruses as “good or bad” but attempt to work with a whole picture however because doctors and scientists do not follow a similar holistic approach (that all disease has its causative roots in a body mind and spirit) they mainly focus on the “disease” model, that viruses are “bad” and are to "blame" for disease

An Holistic approach to Hendra

 

To understand the nature of new emerging viruses such as Hendra we need to expand our thinking and see the Earth as a living organism that, like any ecosystem the Earth needs to find a balance within its species, human, animal and micro organisms alike............to find a symbiosis.
Nothing in Nature is separate and while viruses, bacteria and all microorganisms can be inconvenient at best and deadly at worst they have their place in the bigger scheme of things. Holistic philosophies practice a whole “approach” to disease and do not see viruses as “good or bad” but see that they attempt to work within a whole picture. However because doctors and scientists do not follow a similar holistic approach (that all disease has its causative roots in a body mind and spirit model) they mainly focus on the “disease” aspect, that viruses are “bad” and are to "blame" for disease

 

Viruses and bacteria are nature's way of ensuring survival of the fittest, so with a little understanding of their purpose we may be able to dispel some fears surrounding them.

The nature of Viruses and Bacteria is that they are opportunistic, so by following a common sense approach we are able to limit their "opportunity" to invade the host.


If a person or animal comes into contact with a disease or is exposed to a virus it will either get sick and, or die or in the ideal situation it will resist that disease and become stronger as it’s body would have developed antibodies that have fought the disease and won. The Aids virus was a good example of this; while initially many died of the disease many more overcame it and developed resistance. As the first wave of a virus passes the next “generation” will have less impact as the host’s resistance improves
As more people develop a resistance more will have antibodies present in their system
While of course we must follow medical protocol with Hendra and do whatever we need to do and to avoid exposure to viruses and bacteria alike the main factor will always be the person/animal’s immunological status.

Scientists and doctors spend their research dollars studying a physical cause of disease whereas the Holistic view is that any “dis-ease” can also be caused by a compromised spiritual and emotional body and that we need to align body/mind/spirit to be truly healthy
Scientists are also doing whatever they can to find a solution but because they only see disease from a limited physical perspective they are out of their depth. Science needs to evolve with new Holistic thinking

Below are exerts from Scientific writer and researcher Robin Marantz Henig in her book “A Dancing Matrix”.............How Science Confronts Emerging Viruses ................

“An emerging virus isn’t necessarily a new virus: it is just new to the community that is threatened by it. When a virus mutates spontaneously, or crosses species or geographical boundaries, it imperils a population that was never before exposed. And it’s in the first wave of an emerging virus epidemic that most damage is done ------- as occurred with the rabbit virus Myxoma which was deliberately introduced into Australia in the 1950’s to wipe out an imported rabbit population that had grown totally out of control. For a while it looked as if Myxomatosis would do the trick. In the first week after the virus was released it killed rabbits with a fatality rate of 99.8% but just one year later the fatality rate was down to 90% and by 1958 it was a mere 25%. Rapid evolutionary changes in both the Myxomatosis virus and the Australian rabbit had led to adaptations that allowed pathogen and host to coexist in relative equilibrium
..........When a new virus emerges it slides out of its original niche and begins infecting a new population, usually occurring as a result of an actual mutation in one of the viruses’ genes, changing its ability to infect. Changes in the environment including patterns of rainfall and temperature interfere with the balance between certain predators and prey giving the virus a new niche in which to thrive; or the things people do—building roads into rainforests, transporting microbes from different locations, erecting houses on the edge of woodlands...............all these change mans relationship to the environment and expose new populations of people to viruses they’d never seen before ...................................Disease usually results from inconclusive negotiations for symbiosis, an overstepping of the line by one side or the other, a biological misinterpretation of borders

As a Naturopath, Holistic Practitioner and Metaphysician My view is that "immunity" is a state of being which is reflected from the inside (personal) ..out into the external environment (collective)

Equine Assisted therapy Practitioner training

The Holistequine Equine Assisted Coaching Practitioner's Course is not equine assisted learning nor is it equine assisted therapy the only similarity is that we work with clients and horses. Equine Assisted Life Coaching is an "all of life coaching" philosophy that works on the personal growth of the student first in order to raise their vibration to a higher level of accepting Universal knowledge
