Can you feel the yearning to return to what makes us human, what makes us whole?
We have steadily marched away from what we have evolved with as humans over millions of years.
Our way of life, our families and communities, our way of cooking, our relationship with medicine and the Earth- all of these connections have come under strain.
We see the strain in our relationships, in the struggle for wholeness in a fragmented world, in our disconnect from the Earth, from our food, from our natural rhythms and our place in this ecosystem.
We yearn to return to these connections.
The good news is that we are hard wired to seek out, to heal with these connections and the call to return to them has never been as loud.
From our microbiome to ourselves, to our community, to the earth around us- these connections guide, educate and inform our immune system, our microbiome and our DNA.
Our conversation around gut health seems to center on what we put into our bodies and it's true, this does have a huge impact.
BUT something I see, time and time again, in my patients and in my family, you can put all the right food and all the right supplements into a person but if they aren't living in the right context it won't lead to the health they're seeking.
What is true on the macrolevel is true on the microlevel. Our microbiome reflects our connection to the world around us with our internal ecosystem dependent on the greater ecosystem.
We know the damages that trauma and chronic stress can have on our health and the health of generations to come. Trauma deranges the gut microbiome, creates a biology of inflammation and has been associated with numerous chronic diseases and mood disorders.
By the same way trauma can decrease health, reconnecting to what makes us whole can regenerate health and begin to unravel the threads of trauma.
Even with the latest, state-of-the-art medicine more children are chronically sick in this country than are well.
This is the first generation that won't outlive their parents, such a devastating statistic.
This has to do with the world they live in. Often times our children enter this world without the context we as humans have evolved with.
They've lost their connections and it's up to us to get them back.
Our heart has a regulatory effect on our nervous system, our organs and our glands while at the same time maintaining neural communication with the brain.
This brain-heart communication is a connection that holds the power to regenerate health for ourselves, for each other and for the earth we live on.
We live in an ecosytem, we are an ecosystem.
This ecosystem we call Earth is a beautiful dance of connection, just like the ecosystem that is our self.
Now is the time to tend to our ecosystem, both globally and within ourselves.
We aren't meant to manage nature with pesticides, just like we aren't meant to manage health with excess pharmaceuticals.
It's all connected and it's time we reconnect to our ecosystem in the way we were meant to.
