The War on Germs


The diversity of Mother Nature is the center to human health. The health of the Earth is a reflection of the health of all life on the planet, and vice versa. This reflection can be seen in humanity - As humans have evolved the disconnection and divide has become profound.

At some point, it was decided that all microorganisms are the source of disease and this invisible world was out to get humanity. But only a small segment or microorganism are actually pathogenic or infectious.

Back in the 1860s, Louis Pasteur discovered the ability to kill germs through heating or pasteurization. The next decade led to even greater efforts on germ killing with antiseptics through acid and alkaline solutions. Leading us to today, where we live with an antibacterial, disinfected, and sterilized environment.  

This approach doesn’t appreciate that there are microorganisms that are very beneficial to the body. The regard that all microorganisms are bad is leaving humanity at a disadvantage and diminishing the biodiversity of the Earth.

With less beneficial bacteria available, the body has little to no natural exposure of the good guys. These beneficial bacteria have intricate roles in human health and wellness, but when removed leave the body more susceptible to the pathogens we seem to be at war with.

Embracing microbiology and recognizing that all life on Earth is connected, designed for a synergistic relationship, is the missing piece. Microorganisms are a part of everything, their presence does not mean the presence of a disease – Especially when the body is in balance and empowered with the beneficial bacteria.
