HOLISTIC IMMUNITY - & the truth of intrinsic synergistic health

February 16, 2022

HOLISTIC IMMUNITY - & the truth of intrinsic synergistic health

  “Your immune systems are comprised of all parts of the eco-system you know as yourself, and include not only every part of you, from your conscious and subconscious thoughts to your physical body systems, but also how you live and function in relationship with the larger ecosystems that surround you.”
- Robin Rose Bennett, The Gift of Healing Herbs

 

Never has the topic of immunity been more discussed than now. Far from being straightforward, it is a complex subject which must be viewed from many angles.

From a biological perspective, we have an innate immune system. When we are healthy, happy and vital it functions as designed, and keeps pathogens at bay. Differentiating between that which is of benefit and that which may do harm.

This is not determined purely by physiology - the field of psychoendoneuroimmunology, tells us that there is an immune-brain loop and that nervous-immunological interactions exist at multiple biological levels. This means our mind potentially has the greatest influence on our wellbeing than any external factor.

From an environmental perspective, everything is connected. What we do to the earth and other beings we do to ourselves. As within, so without. You need only to look at the state of the world to know we are far from living in symbiosis with all of nature and therefore being in optimal health.

From a metaphysical perspective, everything in the physical world has a counterpart in the unseen. There are therefore energetic influences which affect our biology and physical experiences which cannot be measured by current scientific methods.

 

“If you consider the immune system metaphorically, it is what protects us.. our guard against anything which may harm or weaken us.. When the body’s internal defences are strong, we feel safer and protected, which relieves the adrenals of stress from worry and insecurity. The adrenals, once relieved of stress and fear related burdens, can actually replenish rather quickly. Our life force begins to get stronger, Our light gets brighter.”
. Healing Thresholds: A Modern Journey into Taoist Health Philosophy, by Rehmannia Dean Thomas;

 

Knowing this, how do we best approach what is going on with the planet and within our own bodies and lives?

First and foremost prioritise joy. Whatever lights you up inevitably benefits your physical health a thousand fold. Likewise be prepared to sit with uncomfortable emotions. They are the other side of the same coin and often need only to be witnessed to pass by leaving us lighter in their wake. 

 

 

Remember you are part of nature.
.
“The dream of nature is a complex web of mutuality in which each part supports the other. Somewhere along the way, we lost the experience of unity. We live our lives propping up the lie that we are different from everything else. This is a lie because the same awareness shines in the heart of all things.
Eliot Cowan, Plant Spirit Medicine
 

And finally, support your physiology. We know that what appears as dense and physical is ultimately energetic, however we are far from mastering the art of wellbeing from a purely energetic approach (although herbs and nutrients do also work on frequency). Here is our self care list for these unprecedented times, supported by leading doctors and scientists.

We are not compartmentalised beings.. we are an incredible interconnection of cells and neurotransmitters, organs and enzymes, hormones and electrical currents, energies and magnetic fields, that work in harmony with each other, and nature as a whole.

 

 “Healing is the elimination of the resistance to love.”

"For every human illness, somewhere in the world there exists a plant which is the cure." - Rudolf Steiner

It only takes a brief trip back through history to recognize plants as our original medicine.. While the advent of modern medicine brought with it some giant leaps in our understanding of human biology and the ability to treat in particular acute dis-ease and symptoms, it sadly also heralded the forgetting of ancient healing knowledge and the rise of the commodification of human health.
